First of all, I haven't told you yet about participating in Ally Condie's second book launch party for Matched this past week. Yes, she had two, one at the bookstore and one at the library. (And hey did you hear she is debuting at #5 on The List? Awesome!)So I went so she could sign a copy that I plan on giving away as a Christmas present this year. I said hi to Jenni Elyse there, and of course Heather from Fire and Ice, who I see pretty much at every book event there is! With her camera of course! And I just like, flew out of the house with no fixing up of myself at all! Next book event, I'm going to remember that Heather will be there with her camera without fail and I will need to be prepared!
Yes, she took pictures both with her camera, and one for me with my new phone:
While there, we heard straight from the
Speaking of my new phone, I have a beef with it. You see, they tell you about all the cool and wonderful things you can do with these phones, and all the apps and all the games and all the web fun and how you won't be able to live without it ever again... but they forget to tell you that if you actually USE it and DO all this stuff, that your battery will be dead in a matter of hours and suddenly, guess what? You find yourself living without it. And it's not like I'm constantly using it either.. just checking in now and then. So, yeah. I'm bugged.
Speaking of bugged, I had a dream last night (when I actually was sleeping!) where the room I was in was filled with all sorts of insects. Creepy. Wonder what it means?
Back to the phone, here's some footage I took the other day of Moder singing with his choir. The phone can't zoom in so you'll just have to guess which one he is:
Speaking of Christmas, have your parties started? Ours starts tonight with the church party, and guess what? I'm not in charge! I have been for the past two years and it has been one of the biggest stresses of the year for me... but tonight, I just get to go and enjoy! Then tomorrow we have two more parties, one in the morning, one in the evening. Actually, it should be kinda fun... I hope.....
Speaking of parties and Christmas, who's got time to read? Not me that's for sure, and it's making me a little bit crazy.
Speaking of crazy, my kids love these two crazy guys on YouTube. In fact, they can quote all their stuff now and to me, when the guys do it, it's not that funny, but when the kids do it, I giggle and giggle. Can you relate?
Here's Charlie, my favorite (sheesh could this kid be any cuter?):
And here's Julian, who is sometimes funny and sometimes just plain weird:
Oh my, that's a lot of really really random stuff. I bet there's more, but I really have to go now! Really really.
Enjoy your weekend!
