Near Smack-Down at the Decatur Book Festival

Cathy-on-a-Stick bumped into Drag Queen Cleo at the Decatur Book Festival this past weekend. DQC brings her/his/? own fan along for cooling purposes. Cathy-on-a-Stick had a fan, too. Which she uses for her own purposes.

Fortunately for Drag Queen Cleo, I subverted that purpose, just in the stick of time..

When (Inanimate Object) Worlds Collide

I grabbed Cathy-on-a-Stick and whisked her off to Vicky Alvear Shecter's book launch for her newest release, Cleopatra's Moon, at Little Shop of Stories. And honestly, I had such a fabulous, fun time, hearing all about Cleopatra's daughter, Selene, and meeting new people! In fact, Vicky brought along Drag Queen Cleo, and of course, I introduced Cathy-on-a-Stick. At which point, COS may have mumbled something about "this town not being big enough for the two of them."

I'm not sure if Drag Queen Cleo heard that remark. But then it was picture time, and DQC sorta raised her arms in COS's direction, kinda waving about a spear-like thingie. Which was sorta, kinda awkward, what with Cathy-on-a-Stick's obvious deficiencies in the appendage area.

I figured it was best to get the heck out of Dodge. (But thanks for asking us, anyway.)

The Tale of Cathy on a Stick and the Three Bonsai

Cathy on a Stick went to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit to look for a Bonsai gift for her dad.

This Bonsai was too short (and WAY too expensive).

This Bonsai was too fat (and way too expensive).

This Bonsai was just right (and heavily discounted).

You Want Talent? I Got A Stick With Plenty of Talent

Can you tell that's a ticket for America's Got Talent? See Sharon. And Piers.

Yep, the whole crowd came to the ATL to tape a show in April. And me and Cathy-on-a-Stick were there, whooping it up! You'll probably see me on TV, come this summer. But you won't see Cathy-on-a-Stick. Because Holy Howie Mandel!

That AGT crew was not putting up with any foolishness. Which makes me wonder why we just don't send those guys to our middle schools for a couple days.

Winning a Trunk Full of Goodies, Courtesy of Critique Groups at Springmingle

Yeah, that trunk was full of cool writer-ly stuff. But you know Cathy-on-a-Stick. It's not wicked cool till a pic drops in for a mug shot.

(Was that really bad? Or so bad that it was good? Please use the sandwich method if you'd like to critique.)

Wheee! Alliteration! (Okay, A Tongue Twister)

Cathy on a scarfed Stick, sitting on several snowy stumps, smiling.

(She skipped the swing set. That's just being ridiculous.)
