So, it’s been a while since my last blog entry. That’s the bad news. The good news is that while I’ve been absent from the virtual world, the real world has been incredibly busy and I have LOADS of things to talk about now!
In my little life alone, I have stories ready to share about my vacation to British Columbia where:
- My traveling companion was almost not allowed into Canada because the 12-year old border officer didn’t think she was paying appropriate attention to the customs process;
- The gift I bought for my brother-in-law was confiscated at the border coming back into the United States; and
- We ate dinner at a restaurant sitting practically elbow-to-elbow with Liam Neeson who is every bit as lovely and tall as he appears in the movies. (The real news, of course, is that I was not hauled away to a nice Canadian cell for leaping upon Liam and declaring my undying love while he tried to enjoy a nice piece of lamb shank. I feel I showed tremendous restraint.)
I also have news about the ongoing trials with my literary agent. Suffice it to say that we have an open relationship wherein he is allowed to see other people while I am contractually obligated to stay home and darn socks. (If I may digress for a moment, I wonder when the phrase “darn socks” will finally leave our collective lexicon. Seriously, who darns socks anymore? When they wear out, you just go down to Wal-Mart where you can get three pair for $2.99. I think darning socks has gone the way of churning butter. Most children probably believe butter just appears in the refrigerator in four sticks wrapped in wax paper and wouldn’t even understand a literary reference to churning butter. But, as I say, I digress…)
Aside from my small corner of the world, a number of blogworthy things have happened in the world lately. (Blogworthy: blog-wur-thee . Adj. A topic, event or episode of Supernatural that Laura Kilmartin has deemed interesting enough to waste a few minutes writing about.)
One such blogworthy event is the 2009 Emmy awards which are just about to start. I promise to tell you all about them tomorrow.
