There are several people I’ve been meaning to thank for various reasons, but I just keep putting it off or forgetting about it over and over again. You know how it goes…
Here are the “thankees,” and the reasons I’m thanking them:
Thank you Chris from Stuff as Dreams Are Made On for sending me these:
I know I won them, but still, woot!
I read When You are Engulfed in Flames in one sitting, and then went on to reread Holidays on Ice. I need to revisit more Sedaris very soon!
Older daughter’s gigantic Swedish boyfriend tried to sneak out of the house with the little Domo, but I caught him and beat him severely (not really, but it sounds good). I did have to bribe him to give it back to me by shoving a fistful of french fries into his gaping maw. He’s like a giant baby bird. When he opens his mouth, you can see all the way into his gullet.
I’d like to thank Jill at Fizzy Thoughts for sending me two books, even though I only won one of them. The Lende book is even autographed!
Jill holds a contest every week where she sends a book from her closet to the person whose comment(s) impress her the most. Go and make a pithy comment right now because her closet is emptying quickly!
A hugangous thank you to this guy for playing a huge part in a fantastic dream I had the other day. I’m still drooling over thinking about it.
A special thank you to Stephanie over at Stephanie’s Written Word for awarding me this:
A couple of other people have given this to me as well, but I can’t remember who you are. Whoever you are, thank you very much!
I think one of the boys pictured on my Kool Kidz Klub button has found me. He’s totally down with my design, which is awesome! You can visit his website here. Thanks, Kool Kid!
And, speaking of buttons, I will be making a new one soon. It’ll probably take me three weeks or so because I’m such a retard when it comes to this kind of stuff. Be looking for it!
And finally, extra special thanks to Care from Care’s Online Book Club for starting this reading challenge:
I’m incredibly flattered. This is so sweet of you, Care! Go check out the details on her site.
I’m sure I’ve forgotten some other thank you’s. They’ll probably come to me when I’m sleeping (but dreams of Jonathan Rhys-Meyers will always take precedence)! One last thing before I go, thanks to ALL OF YOU. If it weren’t for my readers, this blog would be just another boring booklist instead of the living, breathing fully-grown and ocassionally fantastic ( : book blog you see before you today!
