I have been so bad about posting lately! In my defense, I am working on the new book, so everything is a bit hectic right now. Doing the edits with the tech editor, plotting the photo shoot, etc, etc.

Lorraine has come to visit me twice now. She came here for our bout against the Chicago Outfit (and got to see us STOMP them) and she came down for Christmas. It was absolutely wonderful. She gave Dill and I custom mugs that her sister made, which say Strange Brew Coffee and have our names on them . She and Neil also went shopping in "the attic" and gave Dill, Jane, Kerrie, and myself some truly wonderful toe curling fan girl squealing gifts.

I subjected everyone to my baking experiments since I now own THIS:

Made bagels:

And pizza, and butternut squash pierogi. All from scratch. It was wonderful. I like that our Christmas is an odd mish mash of friends who are just like family coming around and hanging out, watching Twilight Zone and ranting about how sexist the movie Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is.

I let Lorraine go back home, against my better judgment. She kept saying things like, "job, boss, responsibility" and I finally relented. I only sent her with enough coffee to last a few weeks though, so she will have to come back for more. All part of my evil plans I assure you.

I'll try to be better about posting. Lots and lots keeps happening, and in my head, I have a blog. But actually sitting down and getting time to write one out is proving challenging!

In mere hours. Because this person is coming to see me!
Go read her blog about coming to see her first derby bout and how excited she is. Go on. I'll wait right here.


I am jumping out of my skin with excitement. Lorraine is the kind of friend, that when I posted on twitter that I needed to figure out how to get home from Chicago she came up with a Sensible Plan.
She would drive about 5 or 6 hours to come get me, take me home with her to spend a fun filled weekend full of big white dogs and zombies in the yard, then I would fly home. Very Sensible plan really.
Anyway, I have not seen her since House on the Rock, and with a friend like Lorraine, that is way too much time between visits.

If you want, follow both of us on twitter. It's the best way to watch our adventures unfold this weekend.
