As you might remember, after slaving over a hot keyboard for thirty days in pursuit of that most noble of goals–completing NaBloPoMo 2009–I was pretty jazzed about the possibility of winning one of the fabulous prizes being offered on the official NaBlo site. Alas and alack, whoever performed the random drawings utterly failed to pull my name out of the hat. No prize for me.
This morning, Kathy walked into my office and, with much fanfare, presented me with this bag, festively festooned with this garland of…disco balls.
My very own NaBloPoMo prize! Isn’t she awesome? Inside there were two splendid things. One: Kathy’s famous chocolate-covered pretzels. These did not make it home to share with the rest of the family. Oopsies.
Two: this book, which I’ve been dying to read ever since I stumbled across it on some geeky website months ago. (Get it? “Dying” to read? Or maybe I should have said “undying” to read. Hahahahaha! I slay me! Get it? “Slay”? Am I hilarious, or what?)
Thank you so much, Kathy! You…complete me.
(Okay, maybe not. But you certainly know what I like! I think this might even make up for that little King incident a few weeks ago.)
