This is for everyone

This is a video of a wee tiny penguin. The Amazing Dr. B (or her equally amazing husband) found it:

You’re welcome.

Great moments of SQUEEEEEEEEEE

Because I can’t wait to share the news any longer: my awesomesauce husband just got a book contract! It’s an academic book for an academic market coming out at some not-yet-determined point in the future. We heard about a month ago that he’d been given peer-review approval, but didn’t know until late this afternoon that the editorial board had approved publishing it (because, well, the editorial board didn’t meet to discuss it until this afternoon).

So at this point they’re mailing him a contract and he’s giving them a date that he’ll have the manuscript ready to proof by and they’re moving from there. Meanwhile, awesomesauce husband is away, meaning we can’t even celebrate until Monday (when he’s back and I’m not working until 11).

So. YAY!

Squealy congrats!!!

In fabulous news, the awesomely talented S.E. Sinkhorn will be published in the January issue of Hunger Mountain, the lit mag for the Vermont College of Fine Arts!!  This is a huge fucking deal and I’m squeeing with excitement for her and her awesomeness.  In recognition of her fabulousness and her newly minted status as published author, I’ve moved the link to her blog, maybe genius, to the Fun Author Blogs section, where she’s now sharing space with everyone from Aprilynne Pike to Maggie Stiefvater.  CONGRATS DUDETTE!  This is just the beginning 😀

I’ll post a link to the story when it’s available.  YAY STEPH!!!!
