No sooner had we unpacked from Lake Placid than OfficeMouse and I packed again. Yesterday we traveled to Amherst, MA, home of Theo Black, aka my WebGod, and his talented and fun wife Holly Black. (Yeah, her.) Holly is running a Spiderwick contest on her blog that involves free DVDs and lolcats, so be sure to check it out.
We are here so that the OfficeMouse can learn at the feet of the master (Yeah, Theo) the arcane magic involved with updated my website with things like book tour dates. I have never had an assistant before and I am astounded at what a difference she has made in my life in just a couple of weeks. I’ve been pretty good at staying on top of my writing responsibilities (though not as good as I’d like), but in order to do so, I let everything else go to hell.
Office assistants clear up the hell part.
Yesterday she had me working on fan mail in the car while she drove.
We’re leaving soon on another adventure, then the journey home, but there are two more photos from the race I want to show you.
Underneath the brims of those caps are John Connolly (the great English teacher I told you about yesterday) and me.
BH and I stretching our tender calves at a gas station on the way home from the race. We’re not hurting as much as I thought we would, but we’re definitely moving slower.

OfficeMouse??? I LOVE IT!!!
Ooh! You’re in the same town as me. That’s either cool or creepy. Can’t decide which.
(The creepy would be me being excited over that fact. Nothing to do with you.)
Gas is only $4.18? You’re lucky =/
