1. Before you ask, no, I have not yet seen Black Panther. But I will see it this week! Can't wait!
2. My book launched this week! Here's picture of Arts and Thefts snuggled up to its big brother Under Locker and Key at the Orem Barnes & Noble:
3. I will be launching Arts and Thefts at The King's English Bookstore in Salt Lake City on March 2 at 7 pm. Here's a link to the event.
4. This past week I discovered this book:
Yes. It is The Phantom of the Opera starring the Muppets.
I have read The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux many a time. I can tell you, this Muppet version is scene for scene, character for character, the same book. There are full passages that are identical or very similar to the passages from the original novel. But Kermit is Raoul de Chagny, and Miss Piggy is Christine Daae.
I died. I was laughing so hard. If you like the Muppets and also have read/appreciate The Phantom of the Opera, I think you'd enjoy this.
5. Taste Chocolate in Provo. It snowed today, so I went with some of my siblings since we've been on a quest for good hot chocolate since the Cocoa Bean (may it rest in peace) no longer exists here. So, is the cocoa good?
Holy cow, it is amazing!
Maybe some of the best cocoa I've ever had. It was $5 for a large mug, but it's made with real chocolate and has a great flavor. The whipped cream is excellent, too. We got a mug of the cocoa and a cup of the sipping chocolate (the same thing, only richer and thicker) and passed them around.
The location is also super classy, with real flower centerpieces and old-fashioned/French music playing.
I wanted to add pictures, but I don't want to infringe on copyright, so I can't. But you should follow the link or look it up yourself if you want to see.
Yes, we are planning to go back. It feels like a vacation to New York City or Paris.
6. "LOU" by Pixar. Seen it?
You have now.
Okay, actually, this isn't the whole thing. It has been cut, but it's the short they had before Cars 3. I think this shows enough to show how cute it is.
This has been my highlights this week. I hope your week has been excellent!
