Last Post of 2009

This week has not been normal at all. In the sense that it's not abnormal the way it's supposed to be abnormal.

In addition to being way busy when it's supposed to be quiet, I don't feel like it's The Change. At all. My kids keep reminding me that it's New Year's Eve and I go "oh, yeah" and promptly forget again.

I have no sense of anticipation for 2010, except that I like the number. It feels right and 2009 already feels wrong, which, again, is backwards. Though I posted something like that on Facebook and then read on Vicki Smith's blog that she keeps typing 1010, and then just now when I tried to type 2010 I typed 1010, then 2030, then 200 before I got it right. Heh.

I could talk about things I'm looking forward to in 2010 (writing retreats, Salute to Supernatural, books, movies) or things that went right or wrong in 2009, but...I just don't wanna. It doesn't feel necessary for me (though I do enjoy reading everyone else's, especially the book lists—I keep adding to my TBB list!).

So I'll just say this. Next Tuesday, go buy Kismet by Monica Burns and Breaking Daylight by M. J. Fredrick. I have it on good authority that they're awesome books, and I'll be buying them myself. Also, MJ is starting a great contest tomorrow, so click the link on her title and check it out.

If anyone else would like me to tout their imminent release, hit me up! I don't want to overlook anyone, but my brain is too distracted to remember if you don't remind me. :)

And hey. Have a great New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Start 2010 off right. I mean it, now.

I keep forgetting as well. LOL on typing it wrong. I like the number, too. It feels comfortable to me.
Maybe that's a good sign?

I sure as hell hope so!

Thanks, Natalie!

Last weekend, the DJ on the college station kept saying TWO-Ten instead of TWENTY-Ten. Yeesh.

LOL 210. Way to throw us wayyyy back, or wayyyy forward! :)

Monica Burns said...

Thanks for the plug, doll. Drinks on me at National. Happy New Year and Big Hugs

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

LOL You got it!

I hope we all have some good signs for twenty-ten though I'm only a little superstitious.
May I hit you? I mean hit you up for a plug?
Everyone be safe this New Years Day.

Dammit, Sue, I KNEW I was missing someone! I'm sorry!


Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

No worries. I really was kidding about the hitting thing. LOL

I know, but my guilt overwhelmed my amusement. LOL
