No, I can’t, I usually use weasel-ly excuses. In this case I’m going to have to beg off posting anything for the next few days because I have to help rebuild a children’s playground, paint the neighbors house, and read poetry at the local library. Now, the cynical among you may be saying something about me attending the DFW Writers’s Conference, but no, no, no, really, I’m not.
Enjoy building the playground, Nigel! Gloria and I will be buy next summer to test the teeter-totter.
I was so hoping I’d run into you when I drop by the conference hotel to
stalkmeet the bloggers I love, but won’t otherwise get to meet.
Of all the conferences to have to miss….
This one is killing me! I’m sure you feel the same.
In re: Sherry’s comment. I want to be on the Teeter side. She gets to be Totter.
I look forward to meeting you at the conference I won’t be at.
Your preference for teeter vs totter is duly noted.
Have fun! Building the playground, I mean.
Thanks, and you are apparently on the totter side.
Have a great time! And make sure you install one of those super cool twisty slides for the kids.
Also, don’t do what I did when I read poetry at my local library and tried to add interpretive dance. Most people just didn’t get it.
Interpretive dance? Most people interpret my dancing as ”ah, he’s drunk.”
Have a good weekend.
Have a blast at the conference! You should charge to be a listening ear for pitches. I think my flubbery (yep, totally a word) (Okay, I can’t lie either!) rehearsal with you was good luck.
Flubbery definitely should be a word, it sounds so good. DFWCon was brilliant, and yes, I even got to hear a few practice pitches!
Make sure you post pictures of the finished work – you know, the painted house, etc. 😉 Or you could write up a great synopsis about your time at the conference.
Sorry, weakness overcame me and I went tithe conference. DFWCon was brilliant again this year. James Rollins was a great keynote and gave two excellent classes. There were plenty of other great classes, too. House painting picture may have to wait a while.
