The book signing was rescheduled. Humph.

On the one hand, this is a little disappointing. Crow Mother and I have spent this afternoon emailing back and forth, trying to decide what Pauline's look is, what I should wear, blah, blah, blah... A friend in the town where the signing was (will be) had preordered pizzas for us to munch ahead of time. Plus, there was just the generalized adrenaline, which is now... *poof*

On the other hand, it has been rescheduled, not canceled. They had a date in mind (same time, same place, next Tuesday) when they called me and were willing to work around my calendar had that date not worked for me. The woman facilitating the meeting was so sick, I was thinking please tell me you're rescheduling this because I don't want whatever it is you have as she was explaining the situation. And the one that should have topped this list ~ Lithus should be home by then. It should play out that I have him and my new, cool-o book signing pen.

So, it's definitely a both-and situation rather than an either-or situation. I'm both disappointed and pleased. Ah, that human condition that never ceases to amaze me.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.

That bites but was rescheduled and not canceled. So that's a good thing.

I can't live dualistically like that. But if you have to choose, choose the positive side of things. Just makes everything easier. I look forward to the book signing post.

Well I understand the disappointed and the pleased both. Me? Since I had this last minute family issue to be dealt with tonight...I am pleased as punch! I'll see you there!

Dammit, I'm sorry as I hate getting geared up for something & then it gets pushed out . . . Oh well, even more time to get your signing down pat & the adrenaline will return.

I want to go to a book signing, dammit!

BTW.... I seem to have lost not only my mind but your email address as well.

I want you to have my number which you seem to have lost although not your mind.

I love you dear......... even though you are now a married woman!

Dennis R ~ Absolutely. Thus the both.

Krystal ~ Your keyboard, God's ears. ;)

GOML! ~ I learned years ago to live within this duality and accept that very few situations were truly either-or. Of course, if you can't do this (the general you or the specific) then choosing the positive is important. Somehow, I get the feeling we could discuss this for hours. Preferably with a good bottle of something.

Traci ~ Nice. :)

$$ ~ Exactly. And I promise, the flourish will be fabulous.

DonDon ~ Email has been handled through contacts elsewhere. Check it. And you'd better still love me because I would hate to think my single status is all that held your heart. And besides, I still love you and it would really suck to be out here by myself. :*
