    I read that this morning and said a “Yippee!” for her, too. :thumb:

    I’m all moved by the “damn, I did it” feeling PBW must be getting.

    Congrats, PBW. That’s just bloody great. :clap:

    Thanks, Mariann! It’s all Cece’s fault. She harassed me into getting smilies, which quickly turned into an addiction. I’ve got a couple more I’d like to find, but I’m trying to be good. :grin:

    I can’t even imagine how cool it must have felt for PBW this morning. And my initial reaction to her initial reaction was WOW! I would have screamed and woken up the whole house! (Okay. Woken? Awakened? Waked up? :lmao:)

    But after a few minutes, I thought maybe I’d have taken my coffee and gone and sat on my porch, too. What a wonderful career moment to cherish privately before shouting it from the rooftops.

    Anyway. :thumb: Way to go!

    I’m so happy for her too! IAB has been on my to buy list for a while now (waiting for $$) and I can’t wait to read it!

    Actually, her news is sort of the reason why I was late for work this morning. I missed my exit in a long comedy of errors (detailed on my blog for your amusement) this morning b/c I was trying to figure out if I should order IAB from Amazon or make a trip to the only (chain) bookstore in town and didn’t pay attention.

    I’d grab that boinking one, but it’s too big. Even Mr. :wtf: is a little too tall.
