The power of please and other things

1) It's snowing here, and school is two hours late. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised in February, but I am. I was already gearing up for Spring. Not. So. Fast.

2) I found an interesting writing course via the I Should Be Writing podcast. Holly Lisle (a successful fantasy author who briefly had her own podcast) has a class at howtothinksideways.com - you can get three modules for free, and I'm finding the one on characters really fun to fill out. So, if you enjoy online writing classes, this might be a good fit for you. I'll let you know if I sign up for it and what I think.

3) I leave you with my recent conversation with Miss Boop about being in two places at once. We were supposed to go to the indoor play gym with some friends, but The Mystery Man had fallen asleep with my mom. Hmm... foiled. I suggested she go to preschool at "Nay School" instead and we do the gym another day.

BB: I want to go to Nay School.
Me: Great, we'll do the gym later
BB: I want to do the gym too.
Me: We will, we'll just go another day. Our friends won't be there, but we'll still have fun.
BB: I want to go today!
Me: I thought you wanted to go to Nay School.
BB: I do.
Me: How do you suppose we'll do both things at the same time?
She looks intent. She bats her long, long lashes. She flashes a look of determination and with victory says... "Please!"
Me: Well, it is a magic word, but....

Don't shoot me, but I'm sad we've gotten no snow this year. Heck the last two days have been nearly 80 degrees.

Oh, I like the snow - I'm not a hater! I was just surprised. Since I got the Durango, I say - bring it on!

But... I could go for an 80 degree day too...
