I forgot to tell you how awesome I am.

Publishers Weekly said about Capers,  Piva fuses romance, family, food, travel, and a touch of mystery in this charming, character-driven story narrated by 17-year-old Hazel…. Hazel’s credible and often funny narration keeps Piva’s novel moving at a bracing clip.”

You thought I forgot, didn't you???

Happy Birthday to the best son ever! Yay SeanPiva*!!! 25 years old!!**

*Yes, that is supposed to be one word. I think it's funny, even if no one else does.

** I think. Math is hard.

I think I am in love with Siri

Fun with Siri

We just got iPhone 5s.

Siri is quite the jokester/minx, isn't she?

The Chef: I love you Siri.
Siri: You are the wind beneath my wings.

The Chef: curse word, curse word, non-curse word, curse word?
Siri: Ask nice, Chef. [She said his name.]
Then! She stopped talking to him!
The Chef: I'm sorry.
Siri: No need to apologize.

The Chef: Happy Kwanzaa.
Siri: I could be wrong, but I believe Kwanzaa was on the 26th.

Because what else is there to do on a Monday night?

That's not aspic, by the way. It's vanilla vodka and Diet Coke. Yum.

I've been a bad blogger.

This, I know. And it makes me have the sad. But I have been thinking about you all, so that's something, right?

Here's the thing: I've been SO BUSY having fun doing fun things and also having fun writing more fun books for you that I left you high-and-dry.Some fun things I did:
  • Not make any resolutions (except to be a better blogger, which I am doing right now!!).
  • Hung out with my son who visited from a far-away land (Missouri).
  • Crocheted a massive blanket that was almost too heavy to lift and a bunch of scarves. (If you didn't get one yet, that doesn't mean you're not going to, although it may be too warm for scarves at that point. Hmmm.)
  • Aaaand...The Chef and I had super fun when we saw these guys on New Year's Eve at a fancy-pants (not really) event. I may have danced a little bit, but not on the dance floor because that would be NUTS!!
This is Brass Attack. I knew all the songs!!! Shocking! Loved them!!
Happy New Year!
