What can I say?

I have been so lazy lately. All I have felt like doing is going to the two jobs and reading. I owe ya'll some randoms too. I need to write them down because I make myself laugh with my thought processes.

I am currently in Atlanta, Georgia at the National Book Club Conference for the weekend. Got here yesterday about 4 pm. Had a little rain, but not too much, what got me was the 32 miles of construction from right after the Georgia line and 15 miles out of ATL. Ugh! I wanted to scream and speed. Driving 50 mph on the interstate is like driving standing still. Then when I finally get to ATL getting downtown allowed me to be aggressive and I didn't let the traffic work my nerves. What? I was ready to kick someone's azz after driving in slow motion for 32 miles.

The hotel is the same as last year's NBCC, but without the church group of last year. OMG! The service and the elevator use has been great. Seriously, ATL is allowing me to be great. But, um this dayum rain is a mess. I haven't been able to walk to Centennial Park or anything. Hopefully, tomorrow I will be able to. Did I mention the service here has been impleccable. Loves it!

(Me & Author Eric Pete)

The NBCC is much more organized. I had my doubts, but again ATL is allowing me and NBCC be great! The authors, the readers and the panels today have been just wonderful. It began with the Bebe Campbell Award, but they did a short memoriam for E. Lynn Harris by authors Clarence Nero, Tracie Howard, Kimberla Lawson Roby and Terry McMillan. I cried just a little bit. Then Bertice Berry the receipient got up there and sang, preached and spoke on it! I love her! Last time I saw her, she told me to "Let Love Love Me." I have never forgotten it. I hope I can get my picture with her. I also got to meet author Eric Pete. He is so genuine and just humble. He was gracious and frankly he made it for me today because he really loves his fans. Talking with him before the event was nice. I met other authors and let me tell you the Black Pain panel is the highlight of my experience here. Terrie Williams is so kind and warm she allows you deal with the pain and she knows what it feels like to deal with mental illness. Lovely panel. I hope they do this panel again.

FYI - I retightened this week. Hair looks good!

More to come later! Missed you guys!

Sunsaile - I could do more randoms if I would write down the quirky things I see or do. LOL! I need to do another NBCC post, but still being lazy. Maybe while I am in Dallas this week, I can. Thanks for stopping through.
