The PM I just received from Ara:

Okay.... so, I finished it already. I finished it hours ago actually. I was ten minutes late getting back from lunch because after I sent you that pm I was like "okay, you can read a little bit of chapter 27". And then after I finished that one and was back to work I was like "okay, well you can read the last chapter tomorrow!". And then I pretty much, no joke, hid in a broom closet (I had my work phone with me if they needed anything) and I finished your book. I just had to! And it was before you pmed me back!

Warms my heart that people are reading my book in broom closets no less.  Love you!

And I smile over another volunteer.  Mwhahaha.....be careful what you wish for.

It's still (as they say in Clue) - Hale did it by the barn with the detonator.  Give me until the weekend and I'll send you the new draft Chapter 28.  I need to rework the last scene.  You can help me with the "eloquent writer closing lines"  I need to wax philosophical....

I also need music.  I got $90 in change I just put in the coin star, so now I have I-tunes credits....Gonna raid the music thread and add some stuff to my I-pod since I'm sitting at work doing powerpoint....

This, as my friend Jason has discovered, is the one sure way to make me smile of late:

Drugsy the Owl.

I listen to this on repeat.

Verse's vein-y hot dog cucumber. Amirite, every cavity in the human animal ever?



EDIT: VERSE! How could you? I left my computer for like five minutes to put laundry in. YOUR laundry! And there's no getting you back since you have no shame! Imma think of something... someday! I'll never forget!

Gail Carriger books. I don't know what her trick is but I usually laugh out loud (for reals not lol style) when reading her books. All of her books make me laugh at some point.

Candy. Candy also makes me smile.

Severe thunderstorms at night. Severe thunderstorms with the threat of tornadoes (but no tornadoes). It's so soothing, and I have great dreams I can't remember.

Also, overlarge sweaters make me happy.
