This is Dolce with the duck I plan to put in my free basket giveaway next week at Club RT. I'm making up a beach bag filled with stuff like flip flops and suntan oil and a towel and other beach stuff, along with some of my books.
Problem is, the duck is not a silent duck. It quacks Freres Jacques.
How am I going to pack a Freres Jacques quacking duck into my suitcase? What if it starts quacking at a bad moment? Will the airline baggage handlers toss out my suitcase, in terror of a quaking duck?
I have tons of stuff to lug to RT. Bookmarks for THE SCORPION & THE SEDUCER.
Cover flats for THE SCORPION & THE SEDUCER. Pens advertising THE SCORPION & THE SEDUCER.
Can you tell that I'll be plugging my newest book?
It's been a crazy, crazy week. Between finally getting the FIL home and settled, and then getting ready for RT next week, doing a newsletter mailing for THE SCORPION AND THE SEDUCER, and this week I was at a two-day marketing seminar for the day job. We looked at advertising, graphics, everything.
At one point we were analyzing an ad for Virgin Atlantic airlines. The ad gave away a free limo ride.
I was so tired that I wrote in my notes, FREE LIMO WITH VIRGIN as I typed on the Alpha Smart.
Then I copied my notes to the other people in my department. Oy.
No writing done at all this week. It's been too hectic. Maybe tomorrow.
In the meantime, I saw over on Ferfe's blog that the temps in Pittsburgh are supposed to dip down to the 30's. WTH? I live in Florida. I do not do cold weather in spring.
I'd go out and buy a ski mask, except I think I may have enough trouble packing the quaking duck in my suitcase, let alone trying to explain packing a ski mask...
