100 Things – 87-90

Yeah, I’m still kind of boring over here, other than the fact that I got to have dinner with the #7 Book Club this week to chat about STAY, publishing, and the writing process.  They were eager for a sequel and full of opinions as to what Diane might be up to these days.  It was awesome.  And I got to hear a very funny story from one of the members about trying to replace her library copy of STAY after it fell in the bathtub.

The #7 ladies (who have been meeting for about 15 years!) are amazing and hysterical, and I had a lovely time.  I love the way meeting with fellow book lovers always seems to feel like a gathering of old friends even if I haven’t met them before.

Other than that and lunch with a friend it’s been all work and no play around here, with a little laundry thrown in for good measure.  Oh, and my Happy Birthday-Singing Friend (HBSF) missed yesterday, so today I got both a be-lated Happy Birthday call and today’s Happy Birthday call.  It was kind of awesome.  I am tempted to figure out how to save all the messages to my computer and post them.  I won’t, because I’m not sure HBSF would be too thrilled with it, but I am tempted.

So here’s another stab at my 100 Things List.

87.  I desperately miss diner salads from downstate.  The diners up here aren’t the same.  I’m not saying they’re worse, or better, they just aren’t the same.

88. I just re-read The Ordinary Princess by M. M. Kaye and am so happy that it was an influence on me in my formative years.

89. ghhhhhhhhf (that one was from Argo, who seems to think that I would like having a Kong dropped on my keyboard repeatedly).

90. I desperately miss my friends from downstate, even more than salads.

Comments

  1. The Ordinary Princess! I had forgotten about that book completely, but the mere mention of it made the whole thing come rushing back into my head. I LOVED that book.

  2. Oh cool! I love that you loved it too! I don’t think I’ve ever run into anyone else who’s read it. It was just so good. And such a nice message to get as a pre-teen girl.
