[personal] What I've been doing just lately

A quick update of my personal peregrinations. Thursday, I did the radio interview with Susan Wingate and Joshua Graham. I also performed my last round of guest teaching at [info]the_child's eighth grade class. I'll be creating a printed anthology via lulu.com from their stories. Those kids are pretty darned sharp. That evening, [info]the_child and I had dinner with [info]talekyn, who was in town on business. After a misfire involving a closed Mongolian bbq joint, we wound up at Eastburn, which happens to be one of my favorite restaurants. Good food and good conversation.

Yesterday I took off from work and (mostly) from writing. Instead I ran errands, goofed around, read some more of Red Seas Under Red Skies, saw both [info]kenscholes and [info]lizzyshannon, had dinner with [info]lillypond (a/k/a my sister) at the always delightful Portofino (can you say "pan-fried gnocchi"?). I also spent another two hours with the reporter from the Oregonian and his photographer. Entertaining for me, and I think for them, though they seemed the most boggled when I showed them my liver segments. Most people don't keep substantial chunks of their internal organs on a shelf in their dining room, I suppose.

This morning, quite shortly actually, [info]the_child and I are off to Seattle. She'll be attending a tae kwon do tourney where both of [info]bravado111's children will be participating, then we're all going to Mark Bourne's life celebration this evening. Back to Portland tomorrow, probably leaving late morning, where I then have to prepare to hie myself off to Omaha at the crack of Monday.

Who has time for cancer, really?
