Most of you know I don't celebrate Christmas for various reasons it would be inappropriate to go into here, but...

Earlier today the postie put a card through my door saying he'd left a parcel with my neighbours as it needed to be signed for.

Xmas Eve 2010 was the day I got to hold a print copy of my very first published novel.

:D

So yeah, this Christmas is pretty special after all.

Have a good one, everybody!

brainstorm will show up and ask if it has a poser cover, Adam will shake his pom-poms and Rowan will post a photo of Dick.

firedrake will say "Well done, missus!" and Wayne_K will eat some popcorn.

These are my predictions and my predictions are these. :D

Poser covers are HAWT!

Congrats! It must be a nice feeling :)

Feels great. :D

Leo Carson is a poser, I'll give you that. But LTC has an Amanda Kelsey cover, not a poser/manga/anime design!

So we await Adam's pom-poms and Rowan's Dick, then I have the clean sweep. :D

And tomorrow I'm going round my dad's for a free meal and the Dr Who Christmas special.

I am in grave danger of becoming content.

I got my hubby to do do a hot table dance for you. Then the 2 year old did one.

GO SP!!!

I am neither young, nor a lady, and I resent that remark, oh AGENTED fellow AWer! :D

I have the scorecards at the ready.

He gets extra points for wearing a tutu and lipgloss.

Go you! Congrats.

amyashley
12-25-2010, 01:26 AM
He's sending me the video now.

He also said to let you know it wasn't fair at all to ask for lip gloss and a tutu AFTER the deed was done. Besides, we don't have those things in our house. It's full of MEN...big ones, little ones, furry ones even. There is no way Mama is loaning her stuff out to any of them.

Well damn it. That's just ruined my day. RUINED, I say!

No your day is saved. It's short but too funny.

Ill-placed drawstring looks...odd. Then we have the pre-schooler grabbing his crotch doing the potty dance. Too freaking funny. All for you Scarlett!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12xI0mt9cIU OH MY GOD THAT IS SO COOL.

I have a dance! :D

Tell your family I said thank you, from the heart of my bottom! I wish I could give you a bajillion rep points for this. :TheWave:

You are most welcome!

It's awesome you got your first bound book today! I would be bouncing up and down. You deserved a dance.

Your husband's got rhythm. I'm surprised you don't have sixteen kids by now.

Did I really say that? Why yes I did.

You made him blush. :)

We have a 4 year old, 2 year old, and a 1 year old. That was with a 15 month and 12 month deployment mixed in.

WE ARE FIXED NOW.

He took several years of dance classes. Football, wrestling, rollerblading, running...UGH. He wears me out.

He's hot though. And smart. AND he does dishes. When they start doing that cloning stuff we'll be raking in the money.

That short redhead in the video has rhythm too, but we didn't get his first dance. He was sliding across the table on his belly. I think I will lock him in the house at 16.

Between the book delivery and the dance, this is getting to be a Hallmark Xmas movie! Well, for their new R-rated network. Screenwriters out there, take note.

CGs! :Thumbs:

That dance deserves a thread all its own if you want my not-so-humble opinion.

that's awesome, amazing news, and a wonderful Christmas present.

This thread gave me a big smile :D

That is enough to restore your faith in Xmas! Or since I'm not religious, the part about where you eat good food, celebrate with fun drinks and give and receive presents. :D

Congratulations!!! :snoopy:

Oh, and love the video too.

amyashley, your boys win the Best Thread Derailment of All Time Award!!! Any guy willing to do that for a friend is a definite keeper and should definitely be cloned.

SP, million congrats.

SP, that's awesome! What an amazing feeling that must be! Congratulations, sweetie! Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I'm sure there's no experience quite like holding your book for the first time!

I saw your book tweeted last night by a blog reviewer reading it right now. I re-tweeted. I get ridiculously excited whenever I see someone I know from here get a mention.

She's reading the second one, Plus One, and quoting lines to her followers. I keep thinking, "Oh my God - I wrote that? It's filthy!" But she seems to be liking it so far. Mainly because Spencer has stubble and she likes rough-looking men.

And Rowan - mmm, Dick. :drool

*clicks*

Ohmyshit. That was a photo I didn't have!
