March Blogged-ness, Here Now!!!!

So then, when last we blogged this was going on . . .

Since then, lots has been happening, only we've been . . .

1) Too busy
2) Too lazy
3) Too sleepy
4) Too, too

and therefore, have fallen off the blog wagon.

However, we're back!

Okay, why? What's up, you ask, or I ask, or someone asks. Well, here's the haps . . .

Recently, Peepy and flew into San Jose . . .

And visited Christa McAuliffe School . . .

Principal Rick Yee (no relation to Moi that I know of), was a good sport. Plus, I tricked him. And he read the part of Stanford Wong onstage with me as we acted out a library/food scene from Millicent Min, Girl Genius . . .

I had such a blast and it's fair to say that Peepy did too . . .

The weather was FREEZING back in Los Angeles. Well, it was in the 60s. So when I met up with my American Girl editor, Jennifer Hirsch, to hike up to the Griffith Park Observatory, I wore a coat. She's from Wisconsin, so to her the weather was lovely . . .

It's aways great visiting the Observatory, and part of Absolutely Maybe takes place there!

On Read Across America Day, Peepy and I headed over to Temple City's Emperor Elementary were we were warmly welcomed . . .

My parents had joined me that evening, and I was so glad because uber librarian Tim Rodriguez surprised me with a Congressional Recognition!!!

Who's that at the Women's Business Summit? Why, it's me (Peepy's sleeping) and Pasadena Advertising's Suzanne Marks. I discussed social media and math. But only one of those.

Recently, I chaperoned the South Pasadena High School Academic Decathlon Team to California State Finals in Sacramento. They took 7th place out of over 500 teams. Not bad for a school who attended their first competition just last year.

While in Sacramento, I got to do some sightseeing in Locke, the historical Chinatown area . . .

And back home, food-wise, this happened . . .

Speaking of Daylight Savings Time (I have still not recovered from it), these illustrators have adjusted nicely and are able to stay awake when sharing a meal with me . . .

But not these guys . . .

(That's Dan Santat, and that's Bob Boyle.)

And this is Bob Boyle and Dan Santat and me starring in an Oscar-caliber mini-movie-documentary-about-Bob-Boyle!!!

Look! Who's that? Why, it's me being a dragon or a reader or an author or someone.
