Dining with Dudes

One of the mucho benefits of being an author is that you get to hang out with other creative people. And one of the benefits of being Peepy's BFF is that she knows all the cool dudes . . .

Recently, we had a Hey-Dudes-COFFEE!!!-a-thon . . .


I've only now started drinking the stuff, and you know what? It's good!!!! Well, with LOTS of cream and several artificial sweeteners.

(Fun Fact: Lisa was once chased by a cow.)

There are soooo many benefits to COFFEE!!!


Anyway, our first Dude Dining/Coffee soiree was with this year's Sid Fleischman Humor Award Winner. It's been so cool meeting the winners. Six years ago my book, MILLICENT MIN, GIRL GENIUS was awarded the first honor and it changed my life.

So it was such fun meet up with Allen Zadoff, author of GIRLS, FOOD AND OTHER THINGS I CAN'T HAVE, BUT I CAN HAVE COFFEE!!! WITH LISA AND PEEPY!!!! (Okay, I admit it. I altered the title a wee bit.)

Um, I'm not sure what they discussed, but obviously it was quite shocking. However, later, Allen and Peeps got everything squared away . . .

Next, it was a Dudes Who Can Draw Duo Birthday Breakfast with Other Dudes, Too . . .

That's Ken Min, Wilson Swain, Angelina Jolie playing the part of Lisa Yee, Peepy, and birthday-istas Dan Santat and Bob Boyle.

Peeps and her friend H. Hamburger cried over spilled milk. Later, Peepy drowned her sorrows with too much COFFEE!!!

The Dude Duo Birthday Boys thought her behavior was a bit wild for so early in the morning . . .


Then it was time for more COFFEE!!! This time with the Dude with the Hat . . .
