concierge chez-moi, honey

It feels pretty good to get out of the house after three days spent hunched over a laptop, writing to deadline.  Don't get me wrong, I still love writing for a living.  But even I have a limit to how long I can schlep around in stained sweatpants and a ratty sweater trying to think up a clever things to say about bike paths.

Sometimes a girl's just got to get cleaned up, slap on some make up and make a foray back into society.

I even went shopping at a store that wasn't a thrift shop or the discard bag in the OFKAR's closet.  And found some perfectly fitting jeans that are not of the mom variety.  Booya.

The Spousal Unit and I are heading to the coast on Sunday, which happens to be our anniversary, to spend Thanksgiving and a little quality time with the OFKAR. But I am not coming home after that, oh no.  I'm heading directly to Communiqu3 - the third incarnation of our annual blogger convention - this year being held across the border in yet another lovely coastal city.

It's going to be sort of the polar opposite of what I have been doing the past three days.

Speaking of the coast, here's my latest article in BC Musician Magazine.  (Sometimes a girl's got no choice but to stretch a segue till it screams.)

I was wondering if you were having another blog get together. Have a great time. Say hi to the Ofkar for me. Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Toccata! It will be our second Thanksgiving in Vancouver, but this time we are forewarned that many restaurants close early.

Have a great anniversary and a Happy Thanksgiving!
Enjoy Seattle! It sounds like it will be wonderful.

Thanks, Kathy! Happy turkey day to you, as well. Weather is supposed to be beautiful in Vancouver, but rainy in Seattle. Grrr.
