The Things You Find on the Internet...

So I was taking a quick break from revising (only 15 more pages to go...considered cutting them, but then the story just doesn't really end, and as much as I want to finish, I can't just whack off the culminating moment, now can I?) and so I was playing playing with google and look what I stumbled upon.

Yes.  Some completely humiliating photos taken whilst I was in Chicago this summer.  These are from my visit to Plainfield Public Library.  I found them on the flicker feed from plainfieldpubliclibrarydistrict.



Me and Oreo.  I kind of look more like a monkey than he does.


Look!  I am even putting myself to sleep!  What is up with that?

Forgot to feed the crown that morning so it ate my head.

Elvis the Alien and I look strangely like twins.  Ugh.
And what is the lesson, boys and girls?

I will tell you:  When you are supposed to be revising, do not surf the internet as a way to procrastinate or you, too, might stumble upon embarrassing photos.

(Actually, as goofy as I look, I am grateful to Plainfield for recording the event.  When I am presenting to kids, I can't take pictures, and usually I am so focused on getting ready for the show that I forget to hand my camera to someone else.  Thank you, Plainfield!)

And now my crown is hungry again.  Must go feed it before it eats my head.

Oh..um...yeah...there's that revising thing I still have to finish.

You need to come to Michigan. Partly so I can hang with you but also because my kids need to see this.

Evidently, it's all about ME ME ME!! ;)

These are great. Especially love the crown eating your head! I have a feeling you're done with those 15 pages by now. Hope it was fun!

I love the idea that the crown ate your head! Great pictures, Shelley. :-)

Haha! My favorite is the one where the crown is eating your head. You should feed it more often. I hope revising goes well :)

You have to be the coolest storyteller ever. I think your crown is as awesome as the Sorting Hat. Yes, I do.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

And that's what happens when you want to cut off the ending so you don't have to revise anymore . . . your crown tries to eat you. :)
