In any event, here is a photo from the Quick Picks meeting where the temperature in the room fluctuated between menopausal and arctic. Can you guess which temp it was when I shot this photo of our leader, Sarah Couri?
On the plane Wednesday I read a galley called HOLD UP from Roaring Brook Press. I would love to tell you the author and show the cover but the book is at home and I am not. (The author is Terri Fields) However, I did enjoy the reading which tells of a hold up at a fast food restaurant from the point of view of some of the employees and the two young men who are robbing it. Fast read, short chapters. In short, a perfect QP nomination for the 2008 committee.
As I am writing this, there is a news report about a town in Texas that was going to penalize folks for saying the "n" word and has now let it go. Sheesh! Fun stuff. Followed by a survey on whether or not it is acceptable to drink while at your kids' play dates. Gotta love the news.
Oh, and in between flights I took a call from the assistant principal at Natalie's school who informed me that my lovely 14 year old (she of the Naked Reading habit) was involved in a tug of war with a classmate over a dispute about who owned the mullet wig in question.
What a week...............
