What I didn’t blog about this week

If I’ve seemed preoccupied with party planning, it’s only because I have been. Running around the Stadt, debating menu choices, trying to negotiate food orders in a language I barely understand, certainly doesn’t make for an interesting week. And so, there really isn’t much that I haven’t blogged about this week except for one thing.

You’re Not The Only One: Intimate Tales From The Internet features 100 essays of bloggers from both sides of the pond. The book resulted from the efforts of five women bloggers--Peaches, Ariel, Desperate Sara, Ms. Robinson, and Vi --who gathered, chose, and edited the writings for publication. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book goes to War Child International, a group of organizations working around the globe to assist children affected by war.

I received my copy this week and have enjoyed reading the, sometimes moving, sometimes humorous, but always personal tales. Peaches and her crew have done a marvelous job. I look forward to the sequel!

In case your interested in ordering a copy or learning more about the charity, I’ve included a link in my sidebar to Lulu, the online publishing company producing the book, as well as a link to War Child International.

And if you order the book, be sure to check out the 20th essay, written by one particular martini-obsessed hausfrau, who was very honored to be part of the effort.

I should be mad at you for Germany beating Portugal yesterday, but instead I will wish you a successful BBQ.

The book looks very interesting (and I like that it benefits charity too). I think I'll just have to go ahead and order a copy. Congrats on making it into the book, we all like a good Martini story :)

Well, aren't you famous? Not that I am surprised...it's just a reflection of the glamorous life you lead!

Charlotte said...

Wow. Now that you're famous, will we have to use the formal "Sie" to address you?

And yeah! DEUTSCHLAND (*honk* *honk* *honk*)!!! DEUTSCHLAND (*honk* *honk* *honk*)!!!

I was celebrating, too. :-)

Somehow, Char (can I call you that?), I don't we celebrated in quite the same way. Mine involved schnapps--very dangerous stuff here in Deutschland. I heard the echos of the honking when I woke up this morning. Or, was it my head pounding?

Dianne said...

I'll definitely order the book, congrats on being included :)

Have a great party!!
