Boo, Y'all!

Boo Y'all,

I am sooooo happy that we live on the back side of a lake out in the middle of nowhere at the end of a very dark cul-de-sac—on account of that pretty much assures that my big giant wad of Halloween candy is SAFE from the clutches of any little trick-or-treaters and I can eat it ALL myveryownself!  Shortly, I will be offering the padded part of my SPQ costume for sale on e-bay—since I will clearly NOT be needing it any longer to complete the effect!  (Just kidding. Yes, I’m fat and getting fatter—but you’ll never get your paws on my fake parts—I have to keep them “for when I get skinny again!”  Like, in the next Life or something.)

Many of you Parade veterans know our favorite SPQ™ WANNABE—Katie from California.  Katie has friends and family in the FIRE ZONES out there, as I’m sure many of y’all do as well and we want to help.  If you’d like to donate, make your checks payable to FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH RAMONA, 408 8th STREET, RAMONA, CA 92065 and write “fire victims” in the memo line. 

Although some charitable organizations (who shall remain nameless but we sneer when we think of them) have already pulled out of the area—the good ole SALVATION ARMY is staying put—as they always do, God love ‘em.  You can make donations to your local chapter and write RAMONA FIRE or WITCH CREEK FIRE in the memo line and rest assured that your $$ will go to give help to an actual person in that area.

NI**LES TO THE WIND, with our own KACEY JONES opening, is playing at the 14th Street Playhouse in Atlanta, Thursday, 11/1 through Sunday, 11/4—call 404-733-4738 for times and ticket info.  Everybody I know who’s been to this says wear your Depends—it’s THAT FUNNY!  Whoo-hoo!  (We have to use the ** in that title or everybody’s spam filter kicks it back!)

JACKSON, MS AREA QUEENS—don’t forget—next Friday, 11/9—RANDY AND THE MOB will open at the MALCO GRANDVIEW and RAY MCKINNON (star, writer, director, producer, you-name-it) will be there to meet and greet.  This film is hysterical and he is a great guy—don’t miss this chance to see both for yourownself!

The BOOK TOUR SCHEDULE for my new book—THE SWEET POTATO QUEENS’ GUIDE TO RAISING CHILDREN FOR FUN AND PROFIT—is on the website calendar now.  Y’all go see—I’m coming to some new places and also returning to some where I haven’t been in awhile—Memphis, Seattle, Portland, Kansas City, Des Moines, Detroit, Chicago, Houston, Austin, Tempe, San Diego and San Francisco—just to name a few of the about 33 total stops.  I’ll be expecting to see y’all and hug your necks!

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!
