Book Cooking Family

Remembering April Fools

Its April Fools Day and I have memories of being a kid and LOVING this day.  We would short-sheet my father;s bed.  We’d tell crazy jokes to one another and then scream “April Fools.”  Life back then was a cheap thrill.  We’d go through the whole day as kids just looking for things to up-end– to catch someone.  And at the end of the day my mother would serve breakfast for dinner. 

I’m getting both nervous and excited for “Perfectly Imperfect” to come out.  The book tour will be energizing and grueling.  It gets harder and harder to leave my kids for long periods of time but I’m also lucky to be on the road in today’s economy and world of publishing.

I think reading is the perfect cure for the economic blues.  Curl up and escape with a fiction or non-fiction book and step outside of yourself.

this week’s word is “saucy” – not as in hollandaise– but as in impudence.

    Saucy has always been one if my favorites. I have used it w my kids saying w a slight accent” well my aren’t we saucy”. Thought of you when my daughter Bridget & I caught Love Happens. A love if words is a sub strand of film. KS

    Pride not only pays more in general and on average to their fighters, you have people making obscene amounts of money (i.e. Ogawa vs Yoshida, Wanderlei vs Mark Hunt, Fedor vs Cro-Cop). Even with QJ making it to the finals in the 2003 GP and headlining Pride 28, he most likely made a damn-good pay check from that, something else I doubt the UFC would be willing to offer, let alone be able to pay QJ.
