Thanks to a tip from a friend, I found out that today author Lynne Truss is speaking at the BYU Devotional.
Woo! Yes! Snoopy happy dance! News like that is akin to Word Nerd Crack.
Alas . . . I can't make it. (I know. That fact is about killing me.)
No worries: I've already set my TiVo to record the devotional. The one they broadcast on KBYU had better be the live one. (If not, I'll still dig around and find the video to watch. I just GOTTA. It's Lynne Truss, people!)
Last night when I set the TiVo up to record, I got the warning that Dora the Explorer and The Wonder Pets! overlap with the devotional and wouldn't be recorded if I proceeded.
I had to choose: A speech by a writer I think is hilarious and witty on one hand, and my sweet little kindergartner who loves Dora and Tuck and all the little Wonder Pets on the other.
Simple answer, really. I'm hoping to keep #4 distracted from the TV today. She'll forgive me, right?
