Richard of Doomed Moviethon and I had an 80s teen movie marathon. He will write a wonderful article on the experience. This is my notes. (OFF stands for overly fashionable friend/family member/etc)
When Thanksgiving was Weird on NPR calls out how, at the turn of the last century, Thanksgiving celebrations were incredibly different than they are today.
“His mother’s loll, the lollpoop, lolloped.”
LOLL: Mother’s loll; a favourite child, the mother’s darling,
LOLLPOOP: A lazy, idle drone…
TO LOLLOP: To lean with one’s elbows on a table.
-all from the 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue by Francis Grose

I have always had a great fondness for things that looked like books but weren’t books. In fact, I have a fondness for things that look like things they are not overall. I am remembering beautiful porcelain bowls that looked like lettuce leaves and porcelain cups that looked like solo cups…that’s another post. This one is all about the books. Amazingly, I only have one of these.

BTW, I got to go to the Kraemer Copyright Conference this year. It is in Colorado Springs, just across the valley from the Garden of the Gods. The campus has an awesome, if distant view that I got to peak at during the day while I planned my walking trip.

National Novel Writing Month is here again. For those who’ve never tried it, now is the year. It is wonderful to dive into the deep end of a creative project and know that a whole world of people are diving in with you. Besides inspiring people of all ages to find their inner writers, the folks over at NaNoWriMo also have a young writers program that encourages and teaches kids about writing. I’m a big fan; can you tell?
Get more information in this year’s PressRelease2016v5.pdf. And, get your novel on!
