Author, author!

March 31st, 2011 at 05:50 am

Last night I went with three of my co-workers to a Mexican cafe in a neighboring suburb and then to a book signing at Border's. We all had a wonderful time. The food was fantastic (I blew my diet, but I'm back in the saddle today) and the reading/talk by the author was very inspiring. We had good seats and got great pictures. She signed a book which I will give to my DIL (after I read it -- she won't mind!)

Cost of the dinner, with tip: $40.11. Cost of the book: $16.41.

We had shocking news at work yesterday. Our VP (my boss' boss' boss) was let go. This will be a huge change for our department as we go under interim leadership and then new leadership. I feel very bad for her. The only reason for her dismissal is that she and the President do not get along very well -- it's not like she wasn't doing her job, or anything. She is a 55-year-old single woman with no one to fall back on, so I hope she is able to find something else quickly.

In better news, my BFF is coming to visit this weekend! We are going to see yet another author (believe me, this is just a coincidence, it's not something I do every day). We also might go to IKEA, as she's never been, and is curious to see it. Or we might to downtown to dine at my son's restaurant. Or we might just hang out. It will be good to see her.

    We have a connection with Anderson's and my kids have met tons of authors, favorites have been Dave Keane (my son did personal art instruction with him and Denise Brunkus - illustrator of Junie B. Jones) and Ingrid Law who wrote Savy and Scumble. All fun!

    The author we saw last night was Kristin Hanna. On Sunday we are going to see Alexander McCall Smith.

    I was talking tonight with a former co-worker asking her for advice for my upcoming interview - I found out that a year after I was laid off, the company president and his daughter kicked out the president's brother from his VP position!! I was totally gobsmocked. Apparently he wasn't doing his job ..., but still, your own brother/uncle??
