It Was a Dark and Foggy Night

I was hanging out downtown tonight because of a meeting so I snapped a few shots of the more interesting looking buildings.

I wonder what it's like to be in those top floors during the day when the clouds are hanging so low.

Some of them have cool lighting so that gives them an extra special weirdness.

That's all I've got.  I went to the Guild meeting after my work meeting but I left early 'cause it had just been too long of a day already.

All Grown Up

She's all grown up.

26 today (her birthday is a national holiday)

And it's still impossible to get a photo of her without the blur of movement.

Happy Birthday, Sweet Pea.

More on Books

I went to Books & Bars tonight, where we discussed Neil Gaiman's Graveyard Book.  

It was a good discussion.

There will be a podcast of it somewhere, but I'm not sure where.  If I find it posted later I will let you know.  You can listen to it and see if you can identify me ;)

BTW, today is Gaiman's birthday - just one day before Girl-child's birthday.  He is 55 years old, which is my age.  Coincidence?  I think not.

Also, I had a request for photos of the book earrings, which I take to author books signings when I think of it.  It's hard to capture the lewd and lascivious comments that Redmond O'Hanlon wrote, but let me say that his is the most interesting signature so far.

There's Weird, and Then There's Weird

I went to see Jenny Lawson at the U of MN bookstore the other night.  I love the Bloggess.  Sometimes people seem to wonder what kind of messed up I must be to love her.   I wish they would just ask ... I would reply, "all of it."

It was totally worth the two hour wait*... she signed my book AND my earring (she was quite amazed by the earring):

A lot of weird stuff can be seen on the light rail, but seriously, a head?  He boarded with a bunch of people who seemed to be going to the airport.

I think if I were traveling with an extra head I would pack it out of sight. 

Just sayin'.

*Plus I got a lot of knitting done :)
