Tour 2009 & First Day of Spring

Good Equinox, good peoples, especially those of you shivering on Brooklyn where it is snowing!

Here is a picture of what our forest looked like just as I was leaving yesterday.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic The daffodils are up!

Yesterday’s trip to LA was pretty smooth. The plane was over an hour late leaving Syracuse, so I had a fun sprint through the Detroit airport to make my connecting flight, but it all worked out in the end. My luggage even arrived on time! Did my March Madness brackets in the air. Felt pretty good when I saw that MD beat California.

(Of course, I prefer not to talk about all of the bad picks I made. There’s not much fun in that!)

I’ve already started to get some nice email from readers of WINTERGIRLS saying how much they enjoyed the book. Thanks to everyone who took the time to write!

  1. Dude, if you ever have an actual layover in Detroit that doesn’t involve sprinting through terminals, let me know. I’d probably drive to the airport just to hang out. Surely one of those restaurants serves sushi…

  2. I missed the radio interview at noon, but they have it up now. For anyone interested, it’s definitely worth checking out – it starts at the 16:11 mark and runs for eight minutes.

    Loved the line about the right bumper sticker for the Volvo. Me, I always wanted to get one of those that say, “Starfleet Academy.” Also, about remembering riding the bus and all, it’s said that John Hughes still remembers his high school locker combination. Which would be why, like you, he was able to create such good works about those years.
