A Kind of Ferris Bueller Day Off

Andrew didn't exactly have a Ferris Bueller day off, but we still had fun

I know I lamented Valentine’s Day yesterday, but I have to say that I actually had a very nice day.  My son, Andrew, took the day off of work and met me at the mall.  We had a wonderful lunch, perused stores (stopping, of course, in the Apple Store so I could offer up my birthday list) and finding him a World Champion Green Bay Packer shirt.  I had to laugh at the long line of men that snaked through Godiva Chocolates.  Much shorter lines in the jewelry stores.



We stopped in Barnes and Noble and I have to say that it was quite busy for a weekday.  Maybe they were buying Valentine’s gifts, but whatever the reason, I’m always thrilled to see a busy bookstore.  Since I was with Andrew, we looked at the comic book section and he showed me his newest Marvel app for the iPhone and he had downloaded Marjorie Liu’s comic book.  Since Marjorie also writes paranormal and urban fantasy, I got him to at least look at the paperback section. Hey, anything that gets anyone to read is fine with me.

So I hope you all enjoyed yesterday, no matter what you did and thanks to the Random Number Generator, the winner of yesterday’s Harlequin Kiss Giveaway is commenter number 23, Dee.  Congratulations Dee and please send your snail mail address to bvey@publishersweekly.com and I’ll forward it to Harlequin.  Thanks to everyone for your posts.

Bottom Line: I’ve planted the seed for my boys to get together and buy me an iPad for Mother’s Day.  Andrew said, “Good luck with that.”

    Barbara, my husband and I went to Borders yesterday and we were very pleased by the number of people shopping there too. In general, it feels like more people are out and about these days.

    Hubby was delivering singing valentines with his barbershop quartet as a charity fundraiser. They delivered 16 valentines (2 songs per delivery) in 11 hours. They visited a “security firm” (i.e., gun shop), office buildings, hospital wards, and even the See’s Candy Show. It was my hubby’s favorite as it had (1) A/C*, (2) great acoustics, and (3) chocolate.

    * Yes, it is hot in Hawaii.

    At 5:30 pm, they called me and sang two songs to me over the telephone!
