Well, that "walking-cold" turned into a "lying-facedown-cold" within a day of writing that last blog post. Man, it's not fun being hit sideways with a bad virus. Luckily, this helped make me feel a little better:
Really, I think seeing this image last night during the Oscars was the reason why I've turned the corner. Also, seeing Lupita Nyong'o winning Best Actress and hearing Cate Blanchett emphasize that movies with women protagonists were not "niche movies." YES.
Also, there was the butchering of Idina Menzel's name by John Travolta.
Oy vey. I think he called her "Adele Dazeem?" Man. The dude needs to get some glasses, or the teleprompter person needs to be fired. Well, also, John needs to be fired. I mean, is it that hard to memorize a well known performer's name before you introduce her on live television? At the OSCARS? *shakes head*
So this Thursday, March 6th I'll be at the St. Charles Public Library (Kisker Road Branch) doing a book signing with Cole Gibsen and Antony John.
On Friday, March 7th I'll be at Hazelwood West Writers Week presenting to crowds of teens and teachers, maybe my biggest yet (200? 500? Yipes!)
Let's hope this cold is kicked to the curb for good before I go. If you're in St. Louis, please stop by! I'd love to see you!
Happy Monday everyone! Did you watch the Oscars? What was the most memorable part for you?
