Happy Birthday, Karen!

Yes, it’s that’s time of year again, Flag Day (aka Karen’s little section of the solar system). We are once again in that little section of earth’s orbit where Karen was born. And to celebrate, I found This page, all about women who are always “Karen.” It’s sort of lame, but oddly appropriate…

Legacy has arrived!

As you all know, Kerrigan is having her book Legacy published on May 18, 2007. Yesterday, our ten copies arrived and I thought y’all might want to get a first look:

Legacy front
This would be the front cover in the vineyard outside my office at about 6:00 am this morning (isn’t it beautiful?!?).

Binding of Legacy Back cover of Legacy

Here are the side and back views.

Legacy open
Look, you can even open it! It’s so strange to see it on a printed page rather than a computer screen.

Anyway, Legacy will be available soon! If you’d like to see Kerrigan at a book store near you, jump over here and demand it!

National High Five Day

In the spirit of peace, love, and general awesomeness, I high-five you!

National High Five Day falls on the third Thursday of April each year, which falls this year on April 19, 2007. The holiday originated at the University of Virginia in 2002, and has since spread across the nation, and around the globe.

Imagine that while on your way to class, you pass a dignified looking middle-aged man in a suit. Instead of noticing this respectable pillar of society fifteen seconds or so before your interaction is fated to occur, and lowering your head to avoid his disapproving scowl, you and the businessman simultaneously raise your hands and wordlessly high-five. You both walk on, and likely relate the story to whomever you eat dinner with that night.

Special thanks to Nate and Ted for bringing this to my attention.
