Kansas City: it's worth the trip
That's my slogan pitch to the KC tourism council. I've been in KC almost all week and ya know what - it's a great city. Not that I didn't think I'd enjoy it, but it really is a cool city! I'm sititng at the airport about to board and get home. I spent the day today at Kalaedoscope, which is this amazing craft/art/creative place attached to Hallmark. So much fun talking to kids out there. Tomorrow is Amherst Reads w/ Jon Scieszka. And I have so many paintings to get done in the next two weeks. Ugh! I hope I make it.
And last weekend was easily one of the best weekends of my life. One of my best friends, Ali Baghai got married. (You may know him as the guy who took my author photo for Bubble Bath Pirates! or the guy at the San Diego radio interview with me in The Punk Farm Book Tour Movie.) Everything about the weekend was just outstanding. A big house on the water that all of his friends rented. Non-stop fun. And me and a wedding reception dance floor is like a were-wolf and a full moon....I can't be held responsible for anything that happened.
I might be getting sick. I hope I'm not getting sick.

food court suicide

"whatchyou gonna do with all that junk, all that junk inside yo' trunk...."

today, i was attacked by seagulls
So this morning was rare, in that i woke up early and left my house before 7:30 AM. I took the train into Government Center, because I was interviewed for 7 NBC. I guess the news people like to wake up early. Illustrators don't.
Anyhow, I hadn't eaten breakfast. How could I, when I needed to leave by 7:30? So I stopped at Dunkin Donuts. With a coffee in one hand and a donut (glazed) in the other, I walked across the Government Center steps when a seagull came awfully close to my head. It startled me and I joked with a stranger passing by. When "SQUAWK!" another seagull came close to my head, and grabbed at my hair. It freaked me out and I looked up to see a dozen or so seagulls circling me.
THE DONUT! I thought. They wanted my donut! I shoved it in my mouth and ran.
I wasn't about to give up my donut.
