250-271: The National Book Awards Party – I attended a book awards party the day before my birthday, and a few days before I was sick for 3 weeks! I brought along my friend Elaine because she’d just finished writing her own book and I thought maybe she’d find the time informative! We were both nervous but I’d spent enough time with my editor Connie to know she’ll make sure we’re comfortable and happy, and she certainly did! She was great to Elaine too, welcoming her into the world of books and offering lots of great advice. We had a great time in the end!
243-248: Halloween Party – Here’s some pictures from Cori’s halloween party. I had planned on being Charlie Brown but went with Hipster Charlie Brown when I needed to wear a hoodie!
228-238: Zoo/Pumpkin Trail – Last halloween I went with my friends Cori Heather and Sal to a zoo in MA, where we spent the day, and in the evening they lit up thousands of these carved and painted pumpkins along themed trails. It was really cool! Here are some pictures:
I keep thinking of stories from stuff that happened last year that I can’t believe I didn’t make any LEMONS about. The coolest thing is having this full year documented and I left out some awesome stuff, like going to the NY Comicon in October, or the photowalk I did in July. I also neglected to write about my Chicago trip all year but finally I’m working on it now. It’s harder to pull the details that make a good LEMONS comic after almost a year passes!
