Things I’m Excited About Today

Today is a beautiful day. The sun is shining, Rio is bright and bushy-tailed (wait, that’s every morning!), the early-morning rush to the dry cleaners to take advantage of the “in by 8, out by 5″ special reminded me how glad I am that I do *not* commute to work (and that SB does not commute to work by car), and for the first time in a week, I did not have nightmares last night.

Other things that have me feeling good:

  • My first-ever fan letter about Tap & Gown! Yay!
  • A note from a reader that she has discovered Secret Society Girl fanfiction (no, I will not read it, but still, cool!) Also, she says it’s steamy, if you’re into that kind of thing.
  • My ability to wrangle Power Point to do my will while I plan for my first-ever school library visit.
  • It’s spring! I have some pretty plant outside that just exploded into bright yellow flowers. No idea what kind of plant it is, but pretty! I also caught a glimpse of cherry blossoms.
  • How much less congested I feel this morning. Is it possible my cold is over?
  • The cool answers to yesterdays fan questions. (Even one from Sailor Boy!)
  • I think I may finally be on the right track with my anthology story.
  • Today’s Tap & Gown excerptlet:

I looked up. She was laughing at whatever her friend was saying. My eyes slid toward said friend.

Felicity Bower. Felicity, of Dragon’s Head. Felicity, who was dating my ex-boyfriend Brandon. Felicity, who had done her best to make my life a living hell for the first few months of this semester. Felicity, who would gleefully step over my cold, dead corpse if given half the chance.

I froze. Abort, abort!

  1. The first spring at a new house is such a discovery. I remember mine. I’m such a gardening ignoramus it took me a few years to figure out which were weeds and which weren’t. But such fun to find things poking out for the first time. (I made offer on my house in Feb… but didn’t move in until June… so didn’t get to see garden starting until following March/April.

    Fun about the fan fic.

    /Erica turns pink and looks around shifty-eyed

    Is it still SSG fanfic if Amy has inexplicably changed her name to “Erica”?

    I <3 Poe…….

    I received my ARC at work today. THANK YOU!!! I started reading it in the car ride home (at stop lights of course) I am absolutely hooked on every word! I am thinking about blowing off dinner with the fiance, just so I can finish it in one sitting. I can’t believe I even stoppped to write this. Thanks for the book, the temp. tattoos, and the bookmarks. I have the bookmarks at our customer service desk! The tattoos will go in the new book! Anyway, I just wanted to say ‘Thank you’, so thank you!
