I am in a really good mood! Here are some of the reasons why:

1. Tonight I'm going with my sister and Anonymous T. to hear Michael Chabon read at Powell's. Wheee! I know it will be a good reading because a) it's Michael Chabon and his reading will draw a big crowd with high energy b) the weather is FANTASTIC, so the whole city is in a good mood. c) We will tease Anonymous T. about her groupie-like behavior (tell her not to throw her bra at the BEGINNING of the reading, etc.) which will make me laugh and laugh even though she will undoubtedly be very well-behaved. She will most likely be very well-behaved. Okay, of the three of us, at least one will be well-behaved at any given time. I'm almost sure that will be true. Fun will be had in any case.

2. My resume is almost fixed! it turns out there really wasn't that much that needed changing, and in fact the biggest problem is that I am insane. (This according to two outside (my brain) consultants brought in to examine it.) What a relief! I'll just add that little insanity part under the Experience header, and I'll be good to go!

3. My hair has been cut! I no longer feel like I have wookie hair in need of a sad Britney Spears strip mall barbershop makeover.

4. someone just ordered 10 of my domino magnets off of etsy. So weird, but so nice!! I haven't listed anything new in over a month, so this was just out of the blue and lovely in that "hey, somebody wanted TEN of this thing you made" way.

5. this cover of Cold Comfort Farm (illustrated by Roz Chast, click on pic to see it bigger) makes me laugh every time I look at it. EVERY TIME!

6. This is more of a point of information than a Good Mood List Item, but tomorrow will mark a month since I saw Charles Simic read (sigh) and I hope to have it written up VERY SOON, or I will sanction myself with very STERN CONSEQUENCES. (which have been so obviously effective to date.)

7. Did I mention that the sun is shining and the birds are singing? Because both of those things are happening right this second.

8. have I filled up the space next to the book illustration yet? Yes! excellent. Report from the land of Chabon will follow soon. (but not before Simic, so help me god.)

  1. Man...is that a dare????

  2. I am glad 4 U. Check out my "blog" so you know what is going on with me...

  3. oh, Anonymous T, would I do something like that?

    bbd, I am on my way over~

  4. My gosh! Thanks for restraining me last night and confiscating the 2 extras bras I brought in a little plastic case in my huge leather bag, nestled next to the wet-naps, dental floss, AAA batteries, pocket sewing kit, power bar, chapstick, and shoestrings...

  5. It was my pleasure Anonymous T! Although getting you back on the ground after you started body surfing to the front of the crowd was more of a challenge...

  6. I know that this has nothing to do with this entry, but I must say, knowing how you do not like songs being used for commercials...JC Penny(s) is using the Yaz song Only You to advertise Mothers Day and it makes me crazy! The song is so amazing and Mothers Day is a fine reason to use the song. But not for that company! It makes me feel crazier than I already do which right now is pretty crazy. But JCN will be on CSI tomorrow night. That is good news.

  7. It could be worse, BBD -- it could be for Kay Jewelers or one of those mall jewelers. ptui!. They irk me so. I want to get my supervillain on and attack them with a bedazzler. Or hang them by their ankles from the top of the empire state buiding with a tennis bracelet. Or... well, you get the idea.

    Yay for JCN on CSI! I was watching my tape of GG's last night and there was a little bit of the OC at the beginning which made me nostalgic.

  8. I miss the OC very much, but mostly because when I watched it for the first time it was with you and Bec and it was so fun. I will be watching CSI tonight even though I usually do not watch it. I love Melinda very much.

  9. Hi Nice Blog .The independent Jewelers Point store can't offer the same size product selection because they don't have the finances. The chain stores have better real estate, better product selection, and more money for advertising.
