Sunday Salon-- This That and the Other

It's been a bit of a surreal week in my world, first off, thank you to the anonymous commenter who told me that Meg Cabot linked here in on Twitter on Tuesday. She also called me Twirltacular.

MEG CABOT THINKS I AM TWIRLTACULAR. Life doesn't get much more awesome than that!

I wonder if I can put that on my resume.

Then a female Ghanaian king came to the library yesterday.

Yes boys and girls, I finally got to meet royalty, and I was wearing my Babymouse t-shirt.*

And one of my friends had a baby yesterday and another friend is leaving tomorrow to go to Korea to bring home her son.

Meanwhile, the weather's been gorgeous lately. I've been listening to a lot of this album and sitting in front of open windows, reading Country Driving: A Journey Through China from Farm to Factory, enjoying the sun and warm breeze.

*My shirt no longer seems to be available in T-shirt form. It's the Queen of the World graphic on one of the tote bags, but on a pink t-shirt. I was wearing it a few years ago and one of the girls at work say "Miss Jennie, what's that on your shirt?"

"It's Babymouse!"

She looked confused.

"You guys don't know Babymouse?"

She shook her head no. I took her and her friend over to the graphic novel section and handed out a few copies. Other kids saw I was handing out books and joined the crowd until they were all gone. About ten minutes later, one of the boys, who was very into being macho, stomped over to the desk. "Miss Jennie! I want that pink book that everyone else is reading!"

Babymouse hasn't stayed on the shelf since.

Congrats on your Twirltacular status.

Enjoy it. Ah, but fame is so brief.
