- I got a package today, which came all the way from America! This is most exciting to me. It was from the lovely Angie Muresan, which made it even more exciting to me. I won her giveaway, which I didn't even know I'd entered - how cool is that?
Inside was a book, "French Women Don't Sleep Alone" by Jamie Cat Callan.
With the book was a card, but not just any card. The card was drawn by the same person who did the book cover, Anne Keenan Higgins. How classy is that? (Anyone who reads Angie's blog will not be surprised by this attention to detail.)
I must admit I wasn't sure if I needed to know how to find love just now, and then I spotted this line on the outside: Erica Jong thinks this book is adorable!
I suppose I'd better find a quiet night to take this book to bed soon. Very soon. And a pretty card to send back across the ocean.
Thank you so much Angie!
- Another cool thing that happened on the internet this week is that Babes' faux pas last week inspired my friend Josie from Sleep is for the Weak. She has used it for a prompt in this week's Writing Workshop!
I'm feeling all connected this week.
Thank you Josie!
- And finally, I love the internet because this week it provided me with serious leverage. I would never dream of using this blog as a weapon, obviously. Ahem. Babes has, however, been mildly aware that he was not scoring the greatest of points with all of you last week. A few pointed "You do have some making up to do"s got me my choice of dining venue and my choice of movie on Tuesday. I only had to make a couple of passing references to my blogging audience to keep him toeing the line. I think I have now played my entire hand and then some, and I am out of internet-induced power until he messes up in a bloggable way again.
