Mount Hermon recap, part 6

Captain’s Log, Stardate 04.22.2006

Blog book giveaway:
My Monday (well, really Tuesday) book giveaway is the Flanagans series (4 books) by Marta Perry.
My Thursday book giveaway is A BABY FOR DRY CREEK by Janet Tronstad.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Monday, I'll draw the winner for the Flanagans series and post the title for another book I'm giving away. Stay tuned.

Continued from Mount Hermon recap, part 5:
In the coffee lounge, Sarah had to leave to teach her Night Owl class, and so Chip left, too. I joined some other friends gabbing, and then I went to the dining hall to get hot tea.

There weren’t many people in there chatting, so I zeroed in on the caffeine. Then I heard a voice, “Camy!”

Chip sat at a round table with three other women, one of them Laura Christianson (my blogging buddy and classmate in the Media Mania class). I met Jenn Doucette, who is a long-time friend of Chip’s, and Karen Kennedy. All of them were from the Seattle, WA area.

(BTW, Jenn just started a blog called Chatter Matters: blogging with hope, humor, and author Jenn Doucette.)

Chip waved at me to sit down. I did. (What can I say, I’m a lemming.) He introduced the women.

“Camy here just signed a 3-book deal with Zondervan.”

Wow, Chip MacGregor just tooted my horn for me. That’s kind of cool.

The three women offered congratulations and ask what the books are about. I told them. Chip started teasing me again about Asian chick-lit. It was rather weird because I’ve only ever seen him tease Steve Laube and Randy Ingermanson like that, and I only met him an hour ago.

Well, heck. If he’s going to dish it out, I can, too.

I turned to the women. “Let me tell you what happened in the coffee lounge when Chip first heard about my 3-book deal...”

I described the “revolted jerk” reaction quite nicely, complete with demonstration. The women found it quite amusing. People turned to stare at the cackling and whooping.

Chip protested, “I didn’t do that.”

“No, maybe it was more like a nauseated shudder.” I gave another accurate demonstration.

More snickers from the peanut gallery.

Chip laughed.

So, despite my laughing-and-pointing, Chip can handle teasing. Good thing for me, huh? Since I’m not smart enough to be respectful to an editor.

Tuesday: Some marketing news I learned.


  1. LOL...maybe Chip was looking for someone with spunk!! And you sure impressed him. Now if only those were real sais you had like Jennifer Garner in Elektra. :D

  2. Yeah, Chip can dish it out ... but it's nice to know he can also take it. You rock, Camy-girl.

    (If only he'd take it a little more often, then maybe he'd quit dishing it out so often.)

    (Did I just say that?)

    (Yes, I do believe I did.)

    : )

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
