The hell with it, I'm blogging! Instead of not blogging and being highly productive on my book I was fretting over not blogging and being highly productive on my book. So I'm pulling on my big girl panties and telling myself that I can blog, AND work on my book AND all the other things I have to do. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
OK - (aah, that feels good!) So I had a very cool Saturday. You may or may not know that I edit an autism blogsite called The Rescue Post. Within six weeks it is going to have a new name and the addition of a well known journalist I shall call "J-man" as managing editor. I had a meeting in Massachusetts yesterday to discuss the changes with J-man and PT, another well known name in the autism world. My husband and I met J-man, PT and his wife AG for dinner at a great restaurant in Newton called Ariadne.
If you had been sitting at the banquette next to us you'd have heard us talking about politics, the guys talking baseball (and checking their TREO's for scores, much to my chagrin) placing one order for a pate appetizer and then AG and me talking about treatments for parasites. That's where you might have said, "Check please!" We all laughed at how nice it was to be able to speak the language of autism without having to translate. Some of the conversation got a little graphic, there was much poop talk and of course, the worm chat.
If you and I ever have dinner together I suggest you order that empty doggie bag early on in the meal. You might need to keep it on your lap, just in case of "conversational turbulence."
