The LAWKI Family Reunion Is Not A Low Key Family Reunion

I got the German audiobook version of Die Welt Wie Wir Sie Kannten yesterday, otherwise known as the German audiobook version of Life As We Knew It. Well, I assume that's what it is, because my German is pretty much limited to Pfeffer and ich bein ein berliner. Although I do understand a bit of the back jacket- Miranda, meteor, and Tsunamis. Beyond that, your guess is as good as mine (and quite possibly better).

Never one to pass up an opportunity to reunite family, I invited all the current editions of Life As We Knew It to my dining room table (you know, I don't have a dining room. I have a dining area. But dining area table just doesn't sound right).

Scooter can't resist a party, or anything else for that matter, so he crashed the event. I'm happy to report that he didn't crash the event when he crashed the event.

When the French, Chinese, Brazilian and Bulgarian members of the family show up, I'm sure all the LAWKIs will be happy to see them.

Let's hope my dining area table will be big enough to hold them all!

It looks like quite a happy family. :)

Hope it was a nice reunion! I'm sure Scooter had fun too. ;) Once a troublemaker, always a troublemaker. :)

I am sooooo glad your renown is spreading througout the world! I got my copy of LAWKI at a book fair, so I have the cover with the moon peering through the window. IT's the one with the purple bureau and the tiny skating pictures. Late last night I added a comment to your last post. Did you read it? Also I have a quick question. Did you send out the. . .things (I'm trying to be secretive) yet? Okay, back to this post. If only I still kept in contact with my old friend, Devin. He was German, and he was learning it so he could be in tune with his ancestors. That's pretty much the same with me trying to learn Gailic and Latin. Key word there TRYING. I do know Latin fairly fluently though. Back to my point (I avoid my point quite often). If I still knew Devin I would print out the pictures with the German on it and I would say to him, "Could you please translate this for me?" Then he would tell me and I would write it right in the comment area.

This is me, Sunshine :-). I just wanted to tell you that I was sorry if my comments have annoyed or offended you. f they did, they were not meant for that. I am just a peppy, postitive girl. Once again, I am sorry.

Hi Rachel Maria and Jade and Sunshine and Anonymous-

I've been really busy the past few days. Among other things, I've been mailing the audiobook packages to people. I've gone to the post office Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday.

I sent the packages media mail, which can take a bit longer. Well, the ones I sent outside the country I sent airmail because otherwise they'd taken forever to get there. But the US ones are media mail.

I've sent off the packages to everyone who sent me their mailing addresses, so if you did, your audiobook package is on its way.

And I plan on not going to the post office tomorrow!
