Event Reminder

On Feb. 28, I'm speaking at the College of Mount St. Joseph On The Ohio (yes, that's all one school, and now you also know why we locals risk the snickering and simply refer to it as "the Mount.") My mother graduated from here in the days when the undergrads were expected to follow a dress code, which mandated skirts of a certain length. Pants, I hear, are now acceptable. Hooray for pants!

Details here. Please wear pants, or a reasonable facsimile.

P.S.: An appearance at my alma mater, Mother of Mercy High School, is also listed, but that event is limited to students only. I mean, you can try to sneak in, but I wouldn't recommend it. Unless you're between the ages of fourteen and eighteen, wearing an issue-only uniform, and a girl, you're at a significant disadvantage.

Now, MB, is that "pants" in the American sense of the word, or the British sense? Either one, I suppose, would do just fine-- we just don't want to know about the British type! :D

When do you think you might be performing in the NY/NJ/PA area?? I might even travel to DE...but Ohio is a bit far :-)

I followed your link to the DTTL website and wow. Considering how pretty you are, I'm surprised you don't spend more time doing appearances!

Haha. Thank you, MB.

Really, I remember reading posts where you complained about your 'big nose'...and then I looked at that photo and seriously wondered what the heck you were on to make you ever make you think your nose was big.

If for whatever reason you run out of things to talk about with the MSJ personnel, please tell them I meant nothing really awful by using them as one of my settings for a short story I wrote in junior year. It was a semi-personal allegory. MSJ played the role of Holy Cross. I'd never been to MSJ at all, so if I said it looked dumpy and sad, I didn't mean it.
