Happy Birthday Harry Potter! #NaBloPoMo

It’s Harry Potter’s birthday! Go on Facebook, find someone having their birthday this week, and connect with them.

Some of my friends having birthdays this week include someone I went to high school with. There are also other people having birthdays, like my former English professor. He writes poetry. He’d been published. He’s like Dumbledore and I’m Luna.

Artists and Fans: #NaBloPoMo

Do you think artists should connect with their fans via social media or leave up the wall between performer and audience?

Personally, I think that it is the artist’s choice. If they are not comfortable with interacting with fans then they should keep it to a minimum.

I love it when I hear from people that I admire on Twitter or Facebook; however, the interactions are genuine. Who wants their favorite celebrity to act fake when they are talking you one on one? No one does. Fake is just icky.

This guy from Miss May I keeps it pretty real. He was so nice about signing my pink autograph book. He even commented on how many signatures are in it. At last count, I think there are at least 25 but I’ve had it since 1983.

Moving Sessions: #thestruggleisreal

Lunch almost didn’t happen. I could not get the stove to come on. Or the oven. Then I thought I should check the breakers. That was the trick. The breakers were off. So lunch happened without any tears.

I forgot to bring bowls so I ate my ravioli out of this pretty martini glass. Keepin’ it classy.

The furniture hasn’t made it over to the house yet. The kids were clever and used empty boxes for tables.

Now the teenager and I are going to the store to see about getting material to make no sew curtains. We’re going to have crafty time later in between moving sessions. 🙂

Maybe tomorrow I can get the Internet transferred. Every time I called yesterday, I was on hold. Who’s got time for that?
