Book Contracts, UCLAing, Puppy Food and Mean Santas

Earlier this week we signed our contracts for the fourth book in the MILLICENT MIN trilogy. Well, not a fourth book actually, but a book about one of the characters (Marley) from STANFORD WONG FLUNKS BIG-TIME.

Here's Peepy at Kinko's making a a copy of the contract . . .

To celebrate, we went to the Pasadena Museum of California Art. When we took a photo in the parking garage, my incredible iPhone/camera broke and made its own modern art . . .

Later in the week, our neighbor (hi Liz!) reminded us that Jupiter and Venus could be seen next to the moon . . .

This will not happen again for forty years!

On Saturday, while USC was busy whipping UCLA in football, we were on the UCLA campus to teach my Writers Extension workshop. When we arrived in our classroom, Peepy and I were most impressed by this . . .

Our students were soooooo great! Here they are writing amazing things . . .

Speaking of amazing, our guest speakers were Paula Yoo and Michael Reisman . . .

And here's a candid shot of some my lovely (and handsome) students . . .

(Okay. I just want you to know that the UCLA class photos were supposed to be a lot bigger. Only my computer won't cooperate. Sigh.)

In other news, Puppy was busy too. Check out a few of the things she ate in just one morning . . .

This week I'm (supposed to be) working on the copyedited manuscript of BOBBY, my new chapter book series illustrated by Dan Santat. Only, I got waaaay sidetracked by this . . .

Yes! Here's a link to too many hysterical photos of kids being terrified by mall Santas.
