I registered for the RWA Conference in San Diego and I’m excited about that. I am NOT excited about the hotel bill, though. Sheesh. Everytime I book a conference, I’m stunned at the cost of the hotel. But this year, Wizard swears he’ll go with me…we shall see
And speaking of Wizard, we were in the grocery store yesterday morning. They all know us there. Well they’ve known me for years, and are now getting very accustomed to Wizard. The produce guy has figured out that Wizard is…shall we say…selective (and by selective, I mean PICKY!). So the produce guy tells me the asparagus is really good.
Wizard made a gagging sound. And there may have been begging, as in “No asparagus, Witch, please!” He’s begging because I will get him to eat it and he knows it I happily bought the asparagus
The produce guy laughed, but he must have felt sorry for Wizard and wanted to help him, so he asked Wizard, “What vegetables do you like?”
Wizard didn’t miss a beat. “Popcorn.” Then he went on to describe all the way he liked popcorn.
Produce guy cracked up.
Later, I realized Wizard was missing and found him with Produce Guy who had opened a banana and was teaching Wizard how to add chocolate and bake the banana to make a dessert. Wizard bought the chocolate to try it.
All this is happening right there among the lonely vegetables. Produce guy was supposed to steer Wizard to vegetables, NOT desserts!
And speaking of men, it’s time for our Worthy candidate. So I had this picture in color already, and I was *meh* about it. Then I found it in black and white, and I like it better. It reminds me a little bit of Linc from Caged Magic. But what I think isn’t important, it’s all about what YOU think!
So is he worthy?

You guys crack me up. Mmm, asparagus. Some of that with chicken and portabellos in a light cream sauce. :drool: That produce guy isn’t helping matters. Men. LOL
Hotel prices are awful. Makes me glad we don’t travel. Well, hotels and the airport drama. If I can drive somewhere I’m so much happier.
I think this guy is worthy from the neck down. Something about his face is throwing me off. Probably just me.

I’m registered too! I need to sell a lot of books to pay for the hotel room. My panel submission was accepted so I got a little price break on the conference fee. I was hoping Lawyer Guy would come with me but he’s decided health concerns will keep him here. I hope Wiz goes with you! I’d love to meet him.
Yeah, he does sorta remind me of Linc. The eyes are so intense, even though I’m not that fond of his face. Like B.E., the rest of him is just fine.
Vegetables? I’m in Wiz’s corner there! But shhhh! Don’t tell him.

B.E., I’m looking forward to the asparagus! I just need to pick up some lemons.
I don’t have to fly to conference this year! I’m so happy about that. That’s part of the reason I’m gritting my teeth and paying for the hotel.
This guy isn’t my favorite. I like him just not a fave.

Silver, yay!! I’ll see you there! I wish LG was up to going, maybe things will change in the next few months. And hat’s fantastic that your panel was selected! A break on the price helps too.
Vegetable are good! I am definitely not telling him you’re on his side, LOL!!

You two kill me. I can see Wizard in the store with you making faces. I like how he plays healthy with the produce guy ;). Asparagus is a staple in my house – it IS good for you.
I agree with B. E., the guy is good from the neck down. It’s something about the shape of his face and the down turned mouth. The eyes are nice ;).
Have a great evening :).

Viki, I really like asparagus too but I haven’t bought it lately. But now I need to actually cook it before it goes bad. Wizard will usually eat a little, or at least try it (except brussel sprouts!)
Okay we are not fans of this guy
