and the curtain rises....



ThrillerChiller Theater -- Act II

enter Shirley Damsgaard with this week's VERY cool story called

LITTLE BOY LOST

Shirley has written a delightful set of books featuring a librarian with psychic powers and a grandmother who just happens to be a witch. I met Shirley a year ago, and even though we haven't really hung out i sense that we have a lot in common. Plus we're both Iowa girls, which means we're practical, but also a little demented.





This photo was taken Saturday at Once Upon a Crime in Minneapolis where Shirley was doing a signing. It was warm for October, but really windy. Everybody was puffing away, and i felt incredibly uncool without a smoke in my hand. Do they make candy cigarettes anymore? i actually think SHIRLEY is a witch. look at her hair. look at mine. it was WINDY AS HELL! she's a witch! a witch, i tell you!!!!

Wouldn't a real witch be able to put out the fire when they lit the log pile at the bottom of the stake? I always wondered about that.

jason, you have to kinda wonder what everybody was smokin' back then.

Wood-chopping is good exercise.

I can't help it if the same comment works more than once!

What does your t shirt say, Anne?

anne frasier said...

bekbek, that works for a lot of things. i might start using it in my daily life.

sandra, i wish it said total fucking blood. :(

guilt ridden pop -- it's a local record label.

My kids buy candy cigarettes, but the candy companies now refer to them as "candy sticks." Same product with PC packaging.

anne frasier said...

helen, what's funny is i'm the one who actually looks like the witch. :D

patrick, i'm going to be all over that. next time i'm hanging around outside with the cool kids, i'll pull out my candy sticks and start munching away.
