yum! my first paycheck...
Strangely, my wild rice burger had a sad face made up of chipotle sauce. Maybe because I ordered it without the pile of fried onions? The sadface was a bit counter to our purpose there, but we said a toast and clanked glasses of "Daddy Pop" (and draft orange cream soda--yum!) and celebrated being a "real" writer.
The Bookstore at Fitger's) for some new picture books (and to feed Jabber's Wimpy Kid addiction), and we read the wonderfully onomatopoetic and alliterative Utterly Otterly Day, by Mary Casanova, while we waited for our food to arrive.
(Yes. I am making a very strange face there. Not to spoil the book, but there is a rather frightening scene involving a cougar!)
Fury of the Phoenix by Cindy Pon and Invincible Summer, by Hannah Moskowitz), playing guitar (mainly two Brandi Carlile songs about seven times slower than she plays them), and watching old movies I've somehow never seen (last night was Poltergeist--great fun!)
I'll start on the schoolwork on Sunday night, as usual, and next week will be back to business in the home stretch to summer.
