Whew, ducklings, this has been a voraciously active week of Birthday Bliss; i am in need of some serious tea-drinking and eye-mask-wearing.
I cannot thank Becca Clemens enough for her hysterical guest post on Tuesday; it seriously is one of the funniest things i’ve ever read, and i’m so flattered she consented to publish her genius here! We both had such a raucous time swapping blogs that i feel secure hinting at another blog swap in the future!
Additionally, much gratitude is due to ALL of you who entered the giveaway. Your tweets, tumblr likes, and comments were both much appreciated and spread cheery nerd-love across the waves of cyberspace. Congratulations again to all the winners – you should be getting some mail from me in the next two weeks! Most especially, congratulations to yesterday’s winner, Hattie for tweeting the link to yesterday’s blog about JK Rowling! Thanks to everyone else who entered – may you find the book in another way!
I may be a full endorser of a healthy competition and learning how to lose with dignity (blah blah, etc, etc) but … i also like to be inclusive. (And i happened to have accidentally ordered 100 of the “nerdy and i know it” postcards). So, to thank you all for your sweet comments and kind insights, i am pleased to say that ANYONE who entered into the giveaway and did not win will still receive a postcard from me!
Yes. Not lying. I’m going broke on postage for all of you, ducklings.
Should you like a postcard from me (with a love note, naturally. i’ll even spritz it with perfume like they did in the golden days, if you like) email your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line being “Postcard Giveaway” and you’ll also get a singular “nerdy and i know it” postcard in the mail sometime in the next two weeks! It’s because you’re a shining golden star in the night sky, loves.
But for now, i’m going to crawl under the covers, weeping for the fat stack of papers needing writing and readings needing consuming. College. Unending agony done out of a place of passion. As Ron Weasley would say in Trelawney’s class circa his third year at Hogwarts, “You’re going to suffer…but you’re going to be – happy – about it.”
See you on the other side, folks. Thanks for reveling with me.
best thing in my life right now: nerds.
