Things to celebrate

Happy New Year!

Happy Birthday Anne Rice!

And, well, duh. Librarians not only have great jobs, but they are way cooler than most.

But mostly I celebrating the completion of the latest draft of my book. I’m pretty sure it’s not done yet. There could well be another one or two drafts in my future, plus all the headaches joys of copyediting. But this ride on the roller coaster is over.

How am I celebrating?

With a power tool. The house BH and I live in is still under construction. He’s done most of the work himself, and now I am learning how to help. We have something like a million windows (I exaggerate only a little) and their frames all have to be sanded and coated with polyurethane. I get to wear an attractive face mask while I do this. I am living my Rosie the Riveter fantasy.

I think I love my power sander.

  1. HOORAY for completing your draft! I’m doing virtual cheerleading leaps and splits (because doing the real thing would hurt me) for you! YAY Laurie! 🙂

    Enjoy celebrating with your power sander. 🙂 I’m waving to you from the sunny shores of Huntington Beach, CA.

  4. Even if it’s not done, finishing the first draft must feel great. Hooray!

    Power sanders scare me a little.. I used one over the summer, and at one point it got away from me and I thought for a minute there that I might lose a finger while trying to pick it up. Heh.

  7. Definition of a Librarian according to my Spanish teacher:
    A short mean & evil woman who always tells you to be quiet.

    She usually says it… in Spanish… before we go down to the library.
    It’s amusing. =P

    Anyway; congratulations on finishing the draft of your paper! If you do end up doing one or two more drafts… well, at least you’ve got one done. 😀

    Thanks for plug! Indeed, I do not look like an old-school librarian. Congrats on finishing the draft.
