First off, I just want to say that my friend Dave hates me. Why else would he introduce this into my life?
Okay, so that My Space use. I joined MySpace a few weeks ago, no big deal. The big deal came last Friday, when I received a message from a friend I had lost contact with for eight-to-nine years. I never in my life thought I’d see this person again, though I sometimes thought about them when I heard Hum’s “Why I Like the Robins.” It’s nice to know these things can happen now and then.
Well, we’re two weeks away from Christmas, and I’m getting both excited and cheesy about it. It might be driving Shawna nuts, but she’s putting on a brave face as I talk about drinking egg nog and watch White Christmas. Maybe she’s excited because I mentioned cooking a Christmas Eve dinner for her and her family. Tuna Steaks are Christmas-y, right?
So, I received a check from Aoife’s Kiss on Saturday. Wierd. I didn’t even know it was a paid gig. It’s a tiny check, and I’ll probably frame it or something since it’s my first paid sale.
Oh, before I forget. If you read “A Team-Building Exercise” and enjoyed it, why not head over here and vote for the story. The winner of this month’s goes in their year’s best anthology.
