It's a Bouncing Baby Book!

Yesterday I got the proof copy of the print version of Rock the Pink... this is the first time I've included more than a few photos in a book, and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. The pictures are in black and white, but they didn't degrade in printing, which was my worry.

It should pop up in the online bookstores in a week or so, but if you have a Kindle or another reader with a Kindle app (you can get the app for the iPad for free!) it went live today, and is a few bucks cheaper than the print one will be.

 Wanna see? Clicky here.

My only disappointment is that image file size limitations mean that the pictures in the Kindle version are on the small side...but they still pop off the screen on a color e-reader. 

In other news, the scab fell off my toe, which is good because now I'm less worried about it turning green and falling off, or perhaps worse, I can quiet the little voice in the back of my head that was mulling over what slow-healing wounds might mean. It also means I can give my spiffy sandals a try again, but this time I'll cover the rubbing bits to avoid a repeat of the problem, at least until they're good and broken in.

I also bought new shoes...and don't laugh but I was thrilled to be able to get a pair of women's running shoes. My big, wide feet don't tend to fit into anything but men's shoes, but by going up a size, I was able to get a pair of pretty black and blue Brooks Glycerine 9 running shoes.

Size 11.

Yeah, I know. Insert your favorite Bigfoot joke here.

This weekend looks like it's going to have nice weather, so I'm going to rack a few miles up, test out a new Camelbak bladder (I hate using one for the first time...tastes plastic.) And I may have found a portable protein source I can manage...I am really liking Chobani's pineapple Greek yogurt, and if I have ice in the Camelbak I can stick one in there and take it with me. It doesn't seem to bother me and it's filling.

You know it's good when you'd rather have the yogurt than chocolate.

Next week: walking around SF if it's not raining. I need me some hills :)

Hi! I absolutely adore that picture of you in the pink. The lighting on the cape, the city in the background- it's awesome. But maybe I'm a bit biased because I love, love rabbits. Why is your blog called a wabbit walking? Do you also share my love for rabbit cuteness?

It's A Wabbit Walking because my nickname is Thumper, and often online I use ThumperWabbit ;)
