Did you guys hear me ‘squeeing’ on Monday afternoon? I’m surprised if you didn’t. After all, you danced along with me and Matt. (Did you realize that was a clue? That was my extra-special happy dance.)

Curly heard me all the way down in the basement. Even Marley heard me down in the heart of bayou country. Oh, all right, I didn’t scream THAT loud. We were on the phone as I bugged her with my incessant questions about the Mac when *cue triumphant music here* the email arrived. Angela James of Samhain Publishing offered me another contract – this one for Sam’s story – from here on in known as PERSONAL PROTECTION.

Now that the contract is signed and initialled on all ten pages, sealed in an envelope (with scotch tape, not a kiss) and is winging its way to Samhain even as you read this, I can officially squee long and loud. And in public.

SQUEEEEEEEEEeeeeee *pauses for breath* EEEEeeeeeeeeee

Happy Dance with me again!

    Thanks, ladies!

    I’m calming down now …

    Wylie – eat all the chocolate you want – better on your hips than mine. (Ooh, that was mean!)

    (Did anyone else notice that there are two little girls in purple dresses who are basically mirror images of each other in that dance? Lazy cartoonists, I wonder?)

    Thanks everyone!

    Oh, and Marley’s comment about the horoscope? Here was my horoscope for that day:

    “You are going to get some good news today. In fact, it sends you over the moon! You need to be careful not to let your enthusiasm distract you too much from the business at hand, but when you get the chance you should spread the great news to the people in your life who love to celebrate with you. Send out some emails and let everyone know why you’re so happy right now — you will make them happy, too. They won’t think you are bragging, they’ll think you’re sharing.”

    How weird it that it was SO on the money?
