Thursday already!

     It has been wonderful having Corey back at work, so he can do his own job at least part of the day. This week has been immeasurably better than last week, thank God!

     I was delighted, early this week, to come up with an idea for illustrating my short story 'Allegiance.' (There's a few, particularly the dialogues, where I can't think of an idea sufficiently different from the mini-illustration on my Portal Page.) So it's been fun working at that since Tuesday. Coming along pretty well!

     I needed to break a $20 anyway for Friday...but my 17th anniversary was a good excuse to treat myself to some Arby's mozzarella sticks on Wednesday. Wow, those things are so delicious they should be illegal! ;D

     And loads of fun celebrating last night and Tuesday night by rereading a bunch of my stories: 'Sheltering Wings,' 'Wildfire,' last two chapters of Delarun part 1, 'Twilit Wind,' 'On the Water,' 'Tongue-tied,' 3 gift dialogues, and 'Beside the Embers'...when I wasn't working on the 'Allegiance' illustration or researching the Oregon coast for our upcoming trip this summer. Made for a thoroughly fun evening, it did!

Give California a chance. We'll probably get around to it sooner or later. Unless of course your mozarella sticks are made of organic ingredients and have no trans fat.

Maybe next year's super bowl could have a food police commercial? (Did you see the "Green Police" Audi commercial...if not, watch it on Youtube!)

I suppose they might, but they might find it more profitable to institute an extra tax on food items with a saturated fat content over a certain percentage--you could mention it to your boss. ;) This is assuming California doesn't already do that!

I'll have to check out that commercial...maybe now on break with the nice LAN connection speed...

Okay, just watched it. What a riot! Don't know if it makes me want to buy an Audi, however...

Very glad to hear your work week was a big improvement.
Fun way to celebrate with reading your stories. I need to do that sometime maybe this

You are always tempting me with Mozzarella sticks.

I think I 'jinxed' myself posting that, because Corey will be down in scanning almost the whole day today and Friday! Back to covering that again.

I'm enjoying having one chocolate everyday from the box you sent too!

Re: mmmm....
Actually, I don't think I've ever had them that way. The ones from Arby's I dip in marinara sauce, and the ones I have at home I eat 'plain.' =)

Do I detect a huge sigh of relief that this week has been better than the last? :D

I'm very glad to hear that you are enjoying your celebrations.
