(Caldecott is for the illustrator, Newbery is for and author. Both are American awards named after British people.)


Got it. Smile

Yep, I am a 'Winter Hater' myself.
I would not cry if we dropped that season from the calendar completely!

Let it live up high on the mountains and leave the rest of us ALONE!

P.S. I will take a curry over here as well! Thanks!!

Thanks to my regiment of supplements and exercise and other junk, I am now again my full height of 6'4". For the longest time due to my back problems I was 'shrinking', and I was around 6'3.25" or so.

HAH! TURNING BACK THE CLOCK BABY!

I might actually get to share a brew with Mr. Furi in person next week at my art opening ((at a Brewery Taproom in MPLS)).

I will be sure to look up at him for you G~R. Wink

As long as you don't look up *to* him, ArtGuy!

Or actually, you can if you want. Turning back the clock in pretty impressive and stuff.

To get this thread back on track: I don't know what to have for lunch.

Off to do some tours, then mountains of paperwork. And everyone else of my workmates has the week off. And the wife is in Austria. I wanna go home!

Hoping that Jocelyn figured out what to have for lunch last week.

Congrats to Jamie and his Library Lady Momma on the loss of neck brace!! Big Grin

Rock On D M !!!

I think that faux sausage tastes a LOT like ACTUAL sausage when you dip it into mustard. You've come a LONG WAY Mr. Soy.

I had a vegan donut yesterday, and while it was good, it did not taste like actual donut. Which is weird, as I thought normal donuts were close to vegan anyway. Certainly closer than soy is to sausage!

And I did figure out lunch last week, I got a burrito. :0) Today my choices are pizza or pasta, meeting an old coworker at an Italian place another coworker has been talking up like crazy. Looking forward to it.

(LL, I'm so pleased to hear about Jaime's neck brace!)

So.... The lurker shall lurk no more. 'tis been yeeeeaaaars, my dearest, but I'm back... maybe... I think.. I'm really bad at sticking with things, and I'm super-busy, so probably not, but right now I'm drunk and I miss my lovely board friends!

Congrats to Jaime!! No neck brace = a good thing!
