my prissy puppy

This morning, Oli & I had a nice jog outside and when I took him out after work, it was cool, but still perfectly fine weather - but then it snowed and snowed and snowed.
He thought he wanted to go outside, but I knew he really didn't...I had fun though & Marie took pictures of us.

Moving on out

Today, Marie & I gave our notice that we will not be renewing our lease in June.  Now begins the fun of finding a new apartment and the dread of finding out how little of the deposit we'll actually get back. (Thank you very much Oliver!)

Anyway, I've found a very pretty way to decorate a wall that I can't wait to try out!

Dave Eggers

On Thursday, Nicole & I made our way to the Tattered Cover for Dave Eggers.  I suspected that the tickets had already been given away at some other point, and that we'd only get our books signed and possibly and opportunity to sit in overflow and listen to him. Well, we were there plenty early and got tickets 23 & 24 for the autograph line.  We also got really great seats for the reading.
He read a bit out of The Wild Things, which is the novel version of Where the Wild Things Are.  He also read out of his new non-fiction work, Zeitoun
He was so inspiring & genuine. 
I just started his memoir this morning, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genuis.  I started it several years ago, but am anxious to finish it. I'm definitely on the heartbreaking part right now!
