Heredity

Every once in awhile I come to the sad realization that my Mother is cooler than I am.

Point 1: My mother has podcasted. I have not podcasted. My Mother is cooler than I am.

Point 2: After work today I went home. After work today, my Mother went to dinner with Eric Rohmann. My Mother is cooler than I am.

Sigh.

How come I haven't ever had dinner with cool authors?

UPDATE 3/11/07: Yeah, Mom woke me up this morning to tell me that she had just seen Laurie Halse Anderson speak. And that she was about to go see David Wiesner. She was bragging, but since she asked me which books I wanted signed, it was ok. She's such a cool mom.

That website is pitiful. Update it or take it down.

And I am so cool that I just heard:

Christopher Paul Curtis (he read from his book that will be out in fall.....sounds great)

Jennifer Allison - Excellent speaker-talked about censorship and how writers balance the words they choose.

Lisi Harrison - Very honest that she wrote commercial books. Awful speaker until she got off her prepared notes then interesting.

and, in a bow to the picture book crowd

Lisa Wheeler - Humorous and interesting.

Mom

...and you have a friend that's cooler than you b/c his future step-father was interviewed during a podcast that I was witness to...

Future step-father? I'm confused.
