* Chicken started volunteering at GRL. At this point, everybody I have met knows the following things about my daughter:
A. She's stunningly beautiful.
B. She's old enough to be here.
C. She would love to talk books.
D. She's as bad at paperwork as I am.
E. Mom couldn't be happier or prouder that she's here.
* If I listed all the awesome people I met today, my brain would explode.
* That being said, Kaje Harper, Jaime Samms, and K-Lee Klein put on a lovely panel, as did Rhys Ford, Charley Cochet and Lisa Henry. I love hearing other writers talk about the thing that drives them. Tis an awesome moment.
* For dinner we got to watch pretty women dance hula, and an amazing man juggle fire. Yeah, he caught fire too, but he put it out pretty quickly.
* I had a bunch of LOVELY people at my table for dinner-- and they seemed happy to see me, so that made things much more awesome!
* I got inside and called my family because I'd missed out on calling them two nights running. Tonight's #hashtagwars theme on @midnight was #CrapperBooks. My family needed me to call so I could tweet Harry Potty and the Half-Clogged Bench , Game of Thrones, and If you give a pea a pee. It was almost like I was at home!
* Almost like I was at home-- the fact that I called out "Assholes!" sharply over the phone and they paused, as though knowing they sucked. Ah, I miss my dogs.
* The Grapevine flooded over today-- and I'm SO relieved that it looks like it will be done raining by tomorrow so we might get home on Monday! Because cars were getting swallowed up by mud, and it was scary!
* And on that note, I'm going to bail, cause I've got sleepiness I need to take care of.
