to all the young writers from Bayside Middle School who attended my writing workshops yesterday! Thanks also for all those students from Bayside who wrote me the amazing letters after my last talk at the school. They are so beautiful I’m going to hang them up someplace. (I’d love to pass some of them off as my own artwork, but since they’re signed, I’ll have to give credit where credit is due.) Finally, a particular thanks to Vivian Hicks for arranging those events and for taking me out for a delicious lunch!
Today I’m off to see two more episodes of the Alice show at a screening in Vancouver. I can’t wait. The last two episodes I saw made me laugh until I cried. Which reminds me that this evening might be a job for waterproof mascara. And new shoes. As well as a new top.
Please check the sidebar on this blog for upcoming events. I’ll be in Richmond and Surrey on Tuesday the 4th and at the Vancouver Public Library on the 5th. Stop by if you can! I’ll also be Edmonton the following week at the Capilano Branch of the library on the 11th and at Audrey’s Books on the 12th.
Now I have to go scream and yell like a mad woman at the flicker who is drumming for honeys on our metal chimney pipe. He goes on the make at about 5:00 a.m. and keeps it up for most of the morning. He is making me old before my time. If this keeps up, I’m going to have to pull the old scuba suit out of the basement and set it up, water machine gun in its arms, on the deck. I doubt that will work, but I can throw it off the deck when I get too irritated with Flicker the F*&%#r’s constant racket.
