On the Brink, Super Bowl Party-Pooper Ice/Snow, Party in Hendersonville

Tomorrow I'll be in Hendersonville, NC:
. . . Red Step Artworks this Saturday for our 3yr Anniversary Party and the Grand Opening of our sister . . . Joy of Books! Festivities, including, book signing (I'll be signing Sweetie, TG/SG), painting demos, live music, refreshments and adult beverages from 6-9pm Then after party at the Blue Note Grille' with more live music from Corinne Gooden! Please join us!

Then, later on this month, I'll be here on the panel, etc:
The Jacksonville State University Department of English is pleased to present "I Ain't Been Much Farther Than My Mailbox," the fifteenth On the Brink Conference, on Saturday, February 19 at Leone Cole Auditorium.On the Brink is designed as a provocative and entertaining gathering of Southern writers and readers. The conference offers a forum for emerging writers as they explore the Southern experience through our past, present and future. The conference will bring together writers in a range of genres. The writers attending the conference will read from their works and discuss their reasons for working in their chosen genre, as well as respond to questions from the audience.

PS - just saw this in my google alerts: interviewed by Brett for Anniston Star for the event. :-D


Everything feels frozen over, even if I know that's not true. In fact, it's warmer here than it is where my mom, dad, brother, neices, etc, live in Arlington, Texas - where the Super Bowl is to be played. I can imagine the panic as they worry about fans reaching the new stadium - the millions of dollars that could be lost (I wrote cold instead of could at first! ha! Freudian slip!) because people can't get to the game.

I worry about winter weather, too, when it comes to events. There's always the chance of ice and snow. Maybe I'll have problems driving there, or other people will and the event isn't successful. And even if it's not my fault that the event isn't successful, I'll still feel bad. Lawd! But, imagining a millions of dollars event like the Super Bowl this Sunday and how ice and snow may thumb its nose at the puny humans - well, it makes me glad it's not MY event *lawdy be!* I'll be watching the Super Bowl from the comfort and warmth of my living room.

What about you? What will you be doing for Super Bowl? Were you going and had to cancel your plans? Or do you watch "The Puppy Bowl" (so cute!), or leave the house?

If you watch the Super Bowl, what do you eat?


Or do you care? what?

Be Safe; have a wonderful weekend, and if you are in the Hendersonville, NC area tomorrow night, I'd love to say hello!


PS S- and thank you for your kind comments on the music video below! I've told my brother about them. Also, some of you on Monday's post were interested in SWEETIE review copies, but did not leave your email address or email me and without that, I do not know how to contact you.

Yeah, the weather has been something else! We had an ice storm, yesterday, and my car door was frozen shut and there was a layer of ice on my patio! Not your typical South La. weather! lol I'll be cookin' up a storm for the Super Bowl, see my blog for the recipes. Hope your event goes well, it sounds like fun! Cheers, cher!

We'll probably still be digging our way out of all this snow. :)

Sounds like you have lots of fun to look forward to. Yes, I enjoy the superbowl and I will make fun food as always...wings, taco dip, hummus and some homemade pita bread...maybe some empanada's...sometimes a few people will come over but this year it will be just my family which is plenty. Happy weekend!

No Super Bowl plans except to spend time with a friend (without the football). Walt will be ensconced upstairs in front of his giant tv and be happy as Toby in the river.

Drive carefully. Wish I could be there to see you do your thing. :-)

I've run the gamut of Super Bowl activities during my life. I watch with MY WIFE now, and we eat foods from the regions the two teams represent (this year was easy - lots of cheese, and Klondike Bars!) Other years I've watched with many friends, eaten weird things, I tuned in to an alternate experience (one Puppy Bowl was enough for me, I think, but cute nevertheless and worth experiencing the one, if just for the cultural reference), and I don't suppose there's been much in the way of Super Bowl stuff I haven't done, outside of actually attending the game itself.
