OT: Anyone Watching “Dallas?”…

Le le le le sigh. I really wanted to like this show, because when OG Dallas was in it’s heyday, I’d be plastered next to the television patiently awaiting what outrage J.R. Ewing would wrought, and oo-ing and ah-ing over Pam, but not Sue Ellen, because she was a drunk, bitter biotch. Bobby was hot and a good guy. Never mind that if placed 150 years in the past, the Ewings might have owned my people–I liked it anyway. It just took a bit more suspension of reality when you’re a slave descendant who traces their roots to–you guessed it–Dallas, or at least within a 20-mile vicinity.

Taking This Show On The Road–#Swirling Going National!…

These events, ya’ll–I don’t mean to make you jelly or anything, but they continue to be amazing. Even in 98-degree heat (well, at least it’s a dry heat) nearly 50 people showed up to our “Swirling” book signing at Europa Village in sun-shiny Temecula. I was slightly annoyed with the folks that RSVP’d five minutes before the event, but I was able to forgive it, since we nearly sold out of all the books we brought. We had so much dang fun, people keep asking, “When’s the next one??!”
