So I'm told meade is not all bad. Awesome critique group member and friend Chris says this is so, and, as I trust her, I'm willing to give it another try. After all, her husband makes it! She suggests something fruiter, and sent me the most awesome link to do my own research. So yeah, I need to go buy a bottle.
Next week I'm participating in my first panel as an author at the Oklahoma Encyclomedia Conference. And here's where my past life career of engineering comes in handy. When it comes right down to it, I'm pretty gifted with computers. A lifetime of programming and designing chips will do that.
I maintain the Class of 2k8 website, I maintain my own website, and I can design some fancy PowerPoint slides. So I've been working on my speech and my presentation to go along with it. I have about 12 minutes to talk, and now have plenty of material. Yay for PowerPoint!
And just FYI, who knew there was so much to learn in The Emerald Tablet? The book is packed full of useful classroom information. Just check out this nice slide if you don't believe me.
(Note - If you see a typo, please let me know!)
I'm working on my swag abilities, and have Class of 2k8 fellow member Stacy Nyikos to show me how. Check out these awesome postcards she designed to mail to librarians in the area.
(Note - We know Thursday is not the 20th! It was corrected before mailing!)
On a different, but so darling I couldn't help but mention it, topic my son brought home schoolwork he's done thus far for the year. He's 7-years-old and in the 2nd grade. Here you can see some of his favorite things.
I asked him about it and he got the sweetest look on his face.
Man I love kids!
And, yes, the song "I Want it All" is the one by Queen. While I do my Bohemian Rhapsody karaoke, he'll be right after me ready to do his own Queen tribute!
