Live, in person... ME!

Hey y'all!

I am thrilled and honored to be reading this Sunday, March 18th at The Art Beat Bazaar at the Starry Plough! Art Beat Foundation is an absolutely awesome organization, run by absolutely awesome people, that promotes and nurtures the local artistic community, and The Art Beat Bazaar is an extension of their good works. No kidding, to be invited to read means a lot to me.

It would also mean a lot to me if you came! Here's the link for more information:


It's going to be such a fun day -- talented musicians Kelly McFarling and Christina Bailey, cute crafts, full menu, $3 beers... And me!

And see that "author photo?" Allow me to brag for a minute. That photo was taken at PHYLLIS DILLER'S HOUSE. Yes, you read that right. PHYLLIS DILLER. That is me, in PHYLLIS DILLER'S HOUSE, drinking a Diet Coke in front of her bookshelf and her copy of VALLEY OF THE DOLLS. (It was also taken mere moments before I got in trouble for taking a picture of said copy of Valley of the Dolls.) Yes, I'm bragging, but how often in one's life does one get their picture taken in Phyllis Diller's house, unless you're Charles Nelson Reilly or Buddy Hackett? EXACTLY. If that ain't an Accomplishment, I don't know what is.

But... That's another story for another time. So if you want to hear a different story, please come on Sunday! Hope to see you there!

You are so naturally funny. I especially loved your take on the Tupperware scene, turning something my mother was into when I was young and being dragged to her dreaded affairs into something vintage-hilarious and kicky. Well done. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the blog!

Thank you so much! Your comment made my whole day. :) And Tupperware IS fun... I mean, my God, what's better than brightly colored new plastic bowls? And cocktails while oooh-ing and aaaahing over brightly colored new plastic bowls? ;)

Thanks again!

I cannot wait to see you read. I know it's going to be like one of those situations when you're at a gallery or museum and you have conflicting emotions: Knowing that you'll never be as good mixed in with surges of being completely inspired.

Oh my dear BayAreaBrit -- you have NOTHING to worry about. I'm having a "ugh, I hate what I wrote" kind of night! Sigh.
