Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-04-26

  • Back to work. Not looking forward to this day at work…tossed and turned all night. #
  • Lee made some of the best ribs I've ever had tonight. "Don't worry," he says. "The next batch will be better." #
  • Working on a chapter book for Ray. "Ordinary girl must save mom, known as Queen Bee, from smugglers of magical animals and humans." #
  • I'm calling it The Floating Menagerie. There's a boat. #
  • And don't say, "No 8 year old will know that word." Pfft. Like nobody learned a vocab word from a book before… #
  • So many, many, many things to do. Sleep happened to be #1 on my list this afternoon, though. #
  • 11/26: "You're not crying, either. Nice. I couldn't stand that, if the Queen Bee's daughter were a crybaby." #
  • @elizawhat Me, too. Which explains my lack of pronunciation skillz. in reply to elizawhat #
  • Dear Adobe, what could you possibly have to update this morning…again? Stop crying wolf, bitch! #

  • I am drinking hot cocoa with a giant strawberry marshmallow. Because I said so. #
  • It's a strawberry marshmallow, too, from Rancho Liborio. #
  • Boo! Rejection in the mail today. Yay! Talking to project artist tonight! #
  • Why are form rejection letters always so smug? "I just wasn't enthusiastic enough about this submission." #
  • Okay, not always. The "this wasn't for me, but thanks for thinking of me" letters are appreciated. #
  • Don't subtly insult the people who might be paying your bills – or the people who look up to you. Even if you don't like their stuff. #
  • Getting ready for #ppwc. My freakin' website on my biz cards is outdated, dammit. #

  • @DaphneUn Seriously, the only time I've seen you smug was after Catan. I'll believe it. in reply to DaphneUn #
  • @DaphneUn – I have a friend who's interested in coming to the open Nia house, but the website shows a master class on 13th/6p. Er? #

    Are you still interested in seeing some of Cooking in Leaves. Don’t know what you’d prefer. I could send the Overview of what I plan to do with the book, the table of contents, a sample chapter with or without recipes and folktales. One story, one recipe and a description of the leaves. Whatever you’d like. Where do I send if you are interested and in what form. Karen

    • De

      Karen – I thought you had a recipe picked out already?

      I’d like to read as much as you’d like to share with me.
