Today, when I opened the door to get my mail, I told my postwoman, “I’m so happy whenever you ring the bell because that means you’ve got another parcel with books for me.” Well, actually, today she had two. *g* Wide-eyed, she handed them over and said, “This is getting scary. Will you get any more of these soon?” — “Yup,” I told her with a beaming smile, and her eyes widened even more.
See? I do scare people! Wheee!
So I clutched those precious parcels to my bossom (bosom or bossom?) (or bussom??) (bossom — I’m sure it’s bossom) and raced upstairs, where I inspected them first, read the return addresses, felt the books through the padding, before I finally tore the envelopes open. I tell you, this is better than Kinder Surprise (when I checked out the Wikipedia page just now, I’ve found out that those wonderful, wonderful eggs aren’t sold in the USA — you poor people, you!)! Today I got two books about the Fens in Britain — I figured I might need them for the revisions of BEWITCHED. For some reason or other, it didn’t occur to me to buy any books about the Fen District back when I was writing the dratted novel. Instead I worked with info and pictures I found online. But working with books is of course sooo much better! *beam*
Today I also had the first Lebkuchen of the season — hmmmm. If you’ve been reading my blog for some time, you know how much I love those! (Only my hips don’t. But who cares?)
And later today I ate my last peanutbutter cup. *sniff* No more peanutbutter cups for two years, for I probably won’t go to RWA National next year. *sniff-sniff*
