“I think it will make him gag”
the post or the novel?
well, i for one am also happy that you’ve finished the novel, b/c that means i’m that much closer to reading it. otherwise, i’m kind of annoyed, b/c there is not a single bookstore in this bloody city that has either better than yesterday or tattoo in stock, even though they were both due out today. grr. what to do with negligent bookstores? but i’m happy that i survived my first three-hours-in-a-row class, and that i’m reading the boyfriend list, and that school is fun so far, and that maybe i’m going to ask someone out. (i think the boyfriend list is going to my head.)

Congratulations, Justine! That’s all wonderful news! What makes me happy right now is having the house to myself and my husband and daughter back to work and school. Heh. Heh.

I’m happy that Justine and Scott are on the list for the Norton Award this year, with three nominations between them. And so far, they’re the only folks on the nomination list.

I’m happy about you netting germany, because the bertelsmanns are famously smart about picking hits, and the dutch publishers know this, so this makes it all the more likely that they will wake up and buy the magic trilogy already, translation troubles be damned. congratulations!!

Margo & Scalzi: Thanks! Dead happy, me!
Marrije: My fingers are crossed though Bertelsmann bought the first two books ages ago . . .

Being alive makes me happy.
Being on stage makes me happy.
