BEA...t it!

This is it..Miss Snark is off to the city of southern efficiency and northern hospitality.

She's packed the poodle (banned from BEA after the really unfortunate incident of thinking the guy wearing the toilet seat was a dog water fountain) off to Grandmother Snark's.

She's packed the steamer trunk, sharpened her fangs and is now ready to mix with her colleagues. Whether they are ginned up enough for Miss Snark's mixer is another question.

BEA runs through Sunday. If she totters home by Monday afternoon, it will be a miracle.

Hope you'll be posting from BEA! And have plenty of new things to share with us.

Enjoy the gin and the mixer to the full. May your glass never be empty.

Have fun. And don't stab any one with your stilettos.

Ditto, Brenda. Somehow I get the feeling Grandmother Snark knitted that pink tam for Killer Yapp. Well, we'll be right here when you get back...or at least I will.

ljktc is the word verfication. This looks like something off a Kentucky Fried Chicken Menu.

Enjoy.

Hope KY has fun with Grandmother Snark (though I'm sure he'd rather reunite with the man wearing the toilet seat). And I hope you have fun at the BEA! May your stilettos guide you home safely.

C'mon, Miss Snark, we know what Killer really though he was...

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be ever at your back,
May the rain fall soft upon your face,
May the you sip gin smoothly from your pail.

"Southern efficiency and northern hospitality." I love it!!

I'm so hopeless. I know she's gone, but I still come back here to see if she's posted anything. Argh.

It's Sunday afternoon, and I have the TV tuned to Book TV on C-SPAN2, and they're interviewing authors and sellers at the BEA.

*Sigh* This will be read after it's over.

Why did I have to discover your blog? You're taking me away from the laundry and fighting through the protesting crowds at the less-than-stellar DaVinci movie based on the less-than-stellar-billion-dollar book. Now, I have to read this. Maybe even become one of those weird bird-like creatures devoted to your every word. How will I get the kids lunches packed and finish my soon-to-be thriller-graphic middle grade best seller? Rule to self: Write 3 pages a day and then read Miss Snark.

It's a horrible affliction, isn't it, harried mom? One would think we were masochists.
