I’ve been a crappy blogger. I blame it on the hectic schedule yesterday. I volunteered at both the am and pm sessions of the literacy signing. In the pm, I served as a low tech Vanna White without the sequins as I recorded the winning raffle numbers on a white board.
There were thirty eight baskets with an average of $200 or more per basket. It was pretty impressive. All the money raised through raffles or book sales go toward literacy. It is a pretty awesome thing.
There were no thigh highs or swan hats this year. The ballroom was big, very noisy and hot. I didn’t get to see much but from what I did see, the event was a success.
There were a couple of video crews. The Today Show was there and someone with AVON on their t shirts. Am not sure what that was about. I’ll try to hunt down Julia Quinn and see if she knows.
I’m moving fairly slowly this am as a result of imbibing too much wine. I’m meeting Heather Osborn for breakfast to pitch my idea of a paranormal blog. Just kidding. About the pitch. Not the other stuff.
