Spent a sunny Saturday at Boogie on the Bayou in Campbell with my Bestie, drinking several beers, eating giant sausages, shopping at the many booths, and getting sunburned. While out and about, we came across a rather awesome young woman, holding a “You are Awesome” sign. So, I had to take a picture.
And, Darling Readers, in case you didn’t know, you are awesome, too. (^_^)
What I’m reading: Amal El-Mohtar posted a great essay on Reading Dialect in Celeste Rita Bakerâ€™s â€œName Calling,â€ which lead to some interesting discussion. The reading and discussions lead me to actually reading Rita Baker’s rather fantastic story itself â€“ posted first in the edited version (toning down the dialect) and second in the original version (with dialect as it was submitted).
Other Thingies: I actually got off my bum, braved the heat, and went for a run this weekend, which felt fantastic.
It’s going to be busy week as I prep for my trip. Not sure how much I’ll be able to accomplish beyond Get Ready for Trip, but here’s hoping.
How are things going with you?
