Bling Mugs, Tour & "Thighs"

Dear Y'all,

From all of your e-mails, I gather that you all had a fairly happy Thanksgiving and have the 5 or so pounds to prove it. Ditto here. I also had a spectacular birthday on the 23rd and I thank you all most kindly for the hilarious cards! All I did all day long was read and eat, eat and read—with the occasional nap thrown in there for added decadence.

Not to ruin your day or anything—but I have totally finished my Christmas shopping and over half of my cooking for Christmas Breakfast! Kyle has installed roughly 2/3 of the 850,000 lights (give or take a few) he INSISTS on putting on the tree every year. It is entirely within the realm of possibility that I will have it ALL done by the end of this week. Of course, it is also entirely within the realm of possibility that I won’t get another thing done so I’ll try to rein in my Smug a bit.

Click here (then go to Jan. or Feb. 2008—each event has the details) for the schedule for the next BIG A** PROMO TOUR in support of The Sweet Potato Queens’ Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit (click on the title to order a copy from your local independent bookseller)—there some familiar stops, some that I haven’t been to in several years and a whole bunch of brand new ones! Go now and mark your calendars and COME SEE ME! For most of the tour, we’ll be in the BIG A** BUS—me and Kyle and Sostie and the newest addition to the family—“BD” (Boy Dog)—and we cannot wait to get on the road!

JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS—just look at these RHINESTONE TRAVEL MUGS! Great for Queenly Gifting—but order one for yourself, too, or you’re gonna be  sorry when you see it and want it for yourself and then you won’t have a present for your girlfriend!  I do love to start the day with a BLING, don’t you? 

We’ve redesigned the WANNABE CERTIFICATES and also the PROMISE CERTIFICATES and they are both ON SPECIAL for the holidays! And remember—it is JUST a Promise…but it sure will light up his Christmas tree!

AND…I have begun work on #8! The working title is American Thighs: The Sweet Potato Queens’ Guide to Protecting Your Assets & Maximizing Your ROI. So it’s time for you to start telling me the painful/hilarious/touching stories of your own (or your best friend’s) Struggles on the Road to Maturity.  Tell me how bad it sucks to be getting older—whether you’re turning 18, 30 or 99—there are milestones everywhere in our path and it’s easy to break a hip on ‘em! Tell me how Wise and Wonderful you’ve become—and how you accomplished this! Tell me the dumb stuff you did and lived to tell the tale—but still cringe when you do! Tell me your Beauty Secrets, your favorite way to avoid exercising, your Botox tales and your hair color disasters. Tell me what youthful follies you’re glad to leave behind and the wily old lady stuff you look forward to doing. Tell me about your ex-husbands’ igmo mid-life crises—tell me a LOT about those! Cannot WAIT to hear from y’all!

Write to me anytime at hrhjill@sweetpotatoqueens.com —with funny stories, GOOD OBITUARIES, and/or Questions about Life Itsownself—I'm often wrong, but NEVER IN DOUBT!
