Yep, that’s right…I’ll be Skyping into a Borders in Vegas tomorrow—my first “visit” to The Silver State.

Which makes me glad that at least one corner of my house is put together. (My renovations make the place look like a battered revision…you know the sort: coffee rings, waded pages, scratched out passages, none of which would make any sense to anyone who happened to pick up the manuscript.)

And in addition to the half-stained quarter round, the boxes of flooring, the piles of yet-to-be-shelved books, we also have signs that proclaim the piano a “No Tool Zone,” or offer gentle reminders such as this:


He who removes this blue tape will die an agonizing death involving methodical dismemberment and the slow removal of eyeballs (which will subsequently be sold as earrings).

The Management.”

Ah well, at least we haven’t destroyed our senses of humor along the way…

…But I’m seriously in a twitter about Vegas! Wish me luck…


  1. Good luck, girlie! Even though you don't need it because you are awesome! I only wish I had half your talent.

  2. Enjoy your Skyping. And your renovations will take shape, just like a polished manuscript.

  3. Aw, thanks, guys! It WAS fun...Goofy but true: I'm always so proud of myself when I get anything "tech" to work properly! (Yep, that IS a typewriter in the corner of my office...)
