Well, well, well. Tuesday morning, the sun is shining, and I am in good spirits. I guess I can tell you now that it seems so close to final, but donít go expecting too much, because I donít want to feel stupid if the impossible happens and itís cancelled last minute. BUT, keep an eye out for a selection of my entries here to appear in the San Diego Reader!!
Thatís right. This fabulous local weekly contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if it could publish my provocative words, and I gleefully accepted. I sent out my final selection on Sunday night and yesterday morning I heard that all was received and everything looked ďvery good!Ē This weekend, M.s. and I had a few fun photo shoots. We set up a little studio, I donned my favorite boa (and very little else), and literally hundreds of pictures were taken. Nine were sent with my words, and if my luck will have it, one will be chosen to publish. Weíll see, weíll see.
Early May is when they say, so some attention you must pay, to read my words and say ďOkay!Ē
In other news (though any other news does pale in comparison with the news of my impending fame), this weekend was wonderful! Photo shoots with M.s. are so much fun! Iíve never had my picture taken so many times in two days, and I must say I kind of liked it. A lot. We laughed and posed, and joked, and just had a wonderful time.
Sunday we went to my motherís for Easter, and to belatedly celebrate my sisterís birthday. I canít remember the last time I had such a wonderful, relaxing day down at my motherís. Itís always wonderful, but Sunday was just so... relaxing. The weather was perfect, we ate our meal outside in the warm breeze. My sistersí children are beautiful and darling. Each of my sisters took turns telling stories and making everyone laugh. I promise I wonít tell what they said! Weíre all so paranoid about people hearing us talk about them, but it never stops us from talking. Oh, what fun!
M.s. enjoyed the dialogue and laughter that is the product of any gathering with any one of my sisters, let alone all four of us at once!
Alright, a lot of work to do and Critical Thinking to begin tonight (new course, and I cannot BELIEVE I got an A- in my last class Ė thatís what happens when you spend more time on your Reader Selection than your final exam). But before I go, one more thing...
Ollie, Ollie, Ollie, Ollie!!!! Ollie Ollie Ollie! Ababwa. There, that should set me for the week! And yes, my dear, you are mentioned in the entries I sent for publication. Love, love!
