Went to the Nanowrimo Thank God It’s Over party last night, and it was FUN.
There were crowns:
And more crowns:
My sister Christy read to a group of fascinated listeners, and I was SO PROUD of her. She was the only one of our group who had the cojones to do it.
Jodi, hooray! You may remember her from such hits like officiating my U.S. marriage.
WOW! Chris Baty! The Nano inventor himself! I walked up to him and asked if I could take our picture together. I asked if I could blog it. He said no one had ever asked him that! Weird, we thought. Then I opened my mouth and something very close to this came out, "I just have the biggest crush on you. Probably everyone in this room does, we’re all just watching you walk by and saying, ‘there goes Chris Baty.’ So anyway. Thanks! You’re cute! I’ll send you the link for the photo!"
So I’ll send him the link. Hi, Chris Baty! You rule! Thanks for being nice to me and dude, your speech rocked. You practically have me talked into ScriptFrenzy.
Then we left, and went and saw the Union Square tree.
And I apologize for plastering my image all over this post, but I have to mention this: I paired Meet the Fleet with the new Rowan Arianne sweater, something I never thought I’d do. And it worked. Very strangely, it worked. I never wear that tank, but it was something cool under such a fuzzy warm sweater that I might just do it again sometime.
Now. I have three days OFF, and I don’t have to do anything. (Because of that, my brain is full of things I want to do, like drive and get ollalieberry pie in Pescadero, or see Enchanted, or watch the hang-gliders at Fort Funston. Or I may just sit on the couch and knit and watch the Raiders. Dunno. But it will be nice. (PS – Bethany just texted back — we’re off for pie! And maybe I’ll come across some yarn on the way! O joy!)
