We have News. But first, a report on my mom.
Most Moisturized Mom
My Mom, aka Lill, aka Don’t You Call Me Lilly, aka Living Proof That Emollients and Perfume Prolong Youth, and last but not least, aka Scourge of My Adolescence– is in town. Hubby and I are booked solid with couplish outings, to take full advantage of Free, Guilt-Free Babysitting while Mom bonds with the youngsters. They will eat nothing but French Toast for the next 72 hours. Mom is an All The French Toast You Can Eat kind of gran. She has also broken the news to them that you can put melted butter on popcorn. Clearly things are going to hell in a bucket around here.
(Mom’s bumper sticker: ” I’m Scrapbooking This.” Mom’s Credo: For each moment in life, there is an appropriate acid-free sticker.)
This afternoon Mom went to the local Barnes & Noble to get her Book Club book. She came back and we had this Typical Lill Conversation:
Mom: You’ll NEVER guess who I saw in the bookstore. He was standing RIGHT NEXT TO ME.
Me: Who? Who? Tell me!
Mom: It was Lime Nelson!
Mom: You know, the one who was in Schindler’s List.
Ba dump bump.
I’m sorry, that’s all the Mom for today. You’ll have to come back later for More Mom. For Lime’s fans, let me share one last tidbit: he was asking for poetry books. Aw.
In the department of shameless promotion of our very favorite not-yet-in-print book in the whole wide world, we want EVERYONE ON THE PLANET to know that we will be interviewed– and perhaps teased without mercy— on a radio talk show this coming SUNDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 19TH.
Yes, we’re going to be on the BUZZ FACTOR. The Buzz Factor has discovered super secret information that knitting is HOT–who knew? CHECK IT OUT. The show airs in a bunch of cities listed on the website, and it can even be listened to on the computer. The show airs from 7-9 PM Eastern Time, but we promise not to talk that long. They take calls! Like Car Talk! If your car, or your knitting, is making a funny noise, give Mark and Jen a shout.
How did this crazy thing happen? We hear the handsome host is married to a KNITTER.
I have to go get a hair cut now. You can always tell when a person on the radio has a bad haircut.
