My Celebrity Appearance

Guess who's going to be appearing in person at the local library next week?

There was also an article which appeared in the local paper yesterday but the online version is truncated and doesn't include all of the brilliant, inspirational quotes from yours truly.

Certain of my tiny readership (I'm looking in your direction, E.B.) who live in the area should attend!

In other news, we're about to get slammed with yet more snow; the winter storm warning from the local weather doom and gloom outpost includes the statement "ONLY TRAVEL IN AN EMERGENCY. IF YOU MUST TRAVEL...KEEP AN EXTRA FLASHLIGHT...FOOD...AND WATER IN YOUR VEHICLE IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY."

Does "food" include an old Gu packet I have stashed in my glovebox?

Pfftt! Big deal. I appear at MY local library every weekday. Of course, if I don't, I don't get paid, but still ...

Lisa: Let’s see… Football… Football… ‘Homoeroticism in’… ‘Oddball Canadian rules’… ‘Phyllis George and’…

Bart: Dad, what are you doing here?

Homer: Reading about this Edison character. They won’t let me in the big people library downtown, there was some… unpleasantness, I can never go back.

You've become quite a fixture in the local paper, haven't you?

Pillar of the community, and all that.

usually those armageddon-type warnings in our fair city equal 1-2 inches of snow.

Congrats. You are quite the celeb. Do the local paparazzi harass you?

Good luck riding out the storm. We are going to get hit hard on Saturday.

That's great! My wife does adult programming for her library branch. I think that everyone should support their local library. I hope that the program goes well.
