Talk to the mitten

I've kept this under the radar since I'm not doing any business or signings, but lolcatz and I actually flew into Michigan yesterday to visit some family. So, yes, I'm writing to you now from the Great Lakes State. There isn't too much to report on my activities that doesn't involve sitting around and digging through old family gossip, most of which is stuff better left off my blog.

Like all trips to Michigan, we've already been to Meijer--the super superstore we so badly miss in Washington. And like all trips to Meijer, we came home with a wacky assortment of goods: batteries, vodka, and jalapeno poppers. We opted out of lumber, clothing, or pets this time. And speaking of pets, I learned from my brother tonight that when you hit (and usually kill) a deer with your car around here, the cops ask if you want to keep the deer or donate it to a food bank. This was a surprise to me--but apparently not to a lot of people on Twitter and Facebook, who have already told me this is a common question where they live too. I also need to clarify for some who have asked: when I talk about hitting and killing a deer out here, it's by accident. People in Michigan don't go around purposely trying to take out deer with cars.

Well, at least not in the lower peninsula.
