Girls Write Out
Wednesday, June 21, 2006


COLLEEN: The life of an author is so glamorous. Rolling around in a thirty-foot RV, hobnobbing with gracious bookstore employees, using the men’s groaty restroom.

DIANN: Groaty? Did you say groaty? Okay, that’s the understatement of the year. No Georgia peach fragrance in there, let me tell you. Think outhouse on the last day of the county fair and you pretty much have an idea. And the fact that there was zero soap available, well, that was just wrong, that’s all. Oh yeah, we’re divas.

COLLEEN: But the whole bathroom situation was redeemed by the incredible southern hospitality. These folks down here really know how to welcome new friends! I’m sure we spotted Savannah (Savannah By the Sea) and Haley (Alaska Twilight) walking along the streets of Savannah. We almost stopped to stay hello, but well, our men are so focused on getting us to the next stop that there was no stopping for frivolous things. And let me just say here and now that the Savannah Coffee house had the best frappe I’ve ever had! It’s all about the coffee, you know.

DIANN: And chocolate. Coffee and chocolate. And we’ve had plenty. Especially after the bathroom incident (but we washed our hands with soap first, just so you know).

COLLEEN: And we just figured out why everyone has been honking at us. We thought they realized two famous authors were on a book tour, but no. Someone just flagged us down to tell us our water tank is leaking. Ah, the life of a diva.

It sounds like you gals are having an absolute blast despite the sauna. Ya know, some people pay good money to visit a sauna. :)

I look forward to reading more of your adventures. Couldn't you detour to Oregon? :)

It sounds like you two are having a great time. Can't wait to hear all the stories later. Don't envy you the bathrooms though. Blech!

Wah, wah. I wanted to see you in Jacksonville. But the day you were here, we left for a family reunion in Dothan, Alabama. I wanted to see Waldo and the two famous authors! Phooey.

Tell me you didn't go there without eating at The Lady and Sons!!! My son Seth and I love Paula Deen and we were going to take a trip there this year just for that. I will hurt you if you didn't try.

As far as the bathroom goes? That sounds worse than camping to me! And I wouldn't be drinking coffee for fear I might have to use it again. LOL

We DO wanted to eat at The Lady place! We had to keep reminding ourselves that this was work and we had no time to dally. Besides, manuevering that big RV through city traffic hasn't been fun for Dave. He's been a trouper though. As a reward, I fed him fresh pineapple today while he was driving. LOL

I hate groaty restrooms - yuck! Why is it that it's always the men's rooms that are the groatiest?

Bathroom blahs? UGH. I carry a little bottle of freshner in my purse with "new car smell" for just for that reason! LOL

But it sounds like y'all are having a wonderful time! Enjoy!

Ewww, men and bathrooms. Why is it that they can't seem to notice the smell and grunginess? Like Robin, I always carry the hand sanitizer with me and some freshener spray.

Gotta be prepared!
