Pinky Pye, My Eye

Sadly (for my family who has to hear me expectorate), I am still a tad sick. My eyes are red and my throat is sore. Poor, poor, pitiful me . . .

However, this cheered me up immensely . . .

Yes! It's a handmade Pinky Pye coin purse/business card holder.

I first saw it on Alison Morris's Shelftalker blog, which led me to this wonderful site of handmade goodies.

As soon as I got my coin purse/business card holder in the mail, I ran around looking for my signed copy of PINKY PYE. Alas and woe-is-me, I could not find it. I'm sure it has something to do with my discombobulation due to my sinuses. (I'm also fairly certain it will appear immediately after I post this blog.)

Happily, I did find my other Eleanor Estes books . . .

Oh rats. I also have THE HUNDRED DRESSES, which I love, love, love. Only, I'm too lazy and expectorant to find that one, too. So trust me. It's around here, somewhere.

In other news of discombobulation, I will be speaking at the brand new San Marino Public Library at 3:15 pm on January 31st. And GUESS who will be there earlier in the week?

Answer: Lisa SEE

You may recall there was some confusion and a grand mix-up between Lisa See and Lisa Yee before . . .

I'm going to be in Dallas to give a speech, so I won't be able to see Lisa See. But if you do, tell her that Lisa Yee says hello!

BTW, if you can't figure out who your presidential candidate is, try this Who Should I Vote For Quiz. It may surprise you.
