No, seriously. I renew my annual membership, like, every other month! It’s getting scary. I simply consume audiobooks–words in, words out, that’s my excuse. I seem to crave words. I would breathe them if I could, absorb them through the pores of my skin—today, for instance, I ordered at least six of the things, which would be all right, I suppose, if I hadn’t ordered at least that many yesterday. I should become a stockholder!
Alas, I have no desire to be cured.
Now, for Monday business: our winners this week are: Laurie Gommermann and Lynn Velthouse. Congratulations, ladies! Your autographed books will be on their way soon. As for the rest of you, well, try, try again. There’s a new contest running as we speak, and all you have to do is comment and you’re entered. (I know I say all this every Monday, and probably bore the socks off some of you, but it’s for the new people.) The winners are chosen at random, contacted by Super Jen, and finally announced on the blog. (Phew. That seemed like a mouthful.)
The weather continues to be beyond glorious here in Spokane. Have I mentioned that I THRIVE when the sun shines?
I finally have a Wishing Machine experience to report. One day last week, I simply wished that something wonderful would happen. And guess what? Not only did I win a respectable jackpot on one of my favorite slot machines, but my daughter got a bit part as an extra in the TV series, “Z Nation.” My daughter, the zombie. (Or, perhaps, the zombies’ lunch. I’m not sure I can watch!)
Tomorrow I’ll tell you about “Interlude”, my story in Brenda Novak’s wonderful charity project, SWEET TALK. A big thank you to those who have already ordered–and wasn’t it cool that Brenda responded to so many of your comments? The woman is a class act, a real force for good in a world that can use all the light it can get.
Until then (and even after that), be kind, be well, and be happy. Remember, it’s a choice.
