Do forgive the Battlestar Galactica-style swearing in this post title, but there are a few upcoming things that I am pretty gosh-darned-tootin’ dang-nabbit excited for, and you are about to hear all about them. Happy Monday! Hahaha.
1. MY BOOK RELEASE!!
I know, I know, you are probably (definitely?) sick and tired of hearing about book-related stuff here. But rest assured, we can all see the light at the end of that tunnel! The release day of Terra is THIS WEDNESDAY (which happens to be 12/12/12. I actually did not plan this on purpose, but it really worked out nicely, hahaha) and I am SO EXCITED SOMETIMES I JUST SIT AND BOUNCE UP AND DOWN IN MY CHAIR. Or on my feet. Or laying prostrate in my bed. (Have you ever tried bouncing whilst laying down, by the way? Not as easy as one might think.)
Auuuuugh, I’m just so excited and terrified but mostly excited and pipe-dreamily hopeful and… eeep! If you’re one of the sporadic-check-in readers and aren’t too sure what all this book-talk is about, feel free to check out my writing blog, or the book’s Goodreads page. THREE DAYS!
2. My super preggo sister!
My “big” sister Jenny (I use that term loosely since she is 7 inches shorter than I am) and her husband are coming home for the holidays on the 19th! They moved to Houston over the summer, just when they found out that Jenny was super-dee-duper preggo (for the first time, yayyyy!) and even though I’ve been lucky to see her sporadically since the move, I’m SO excited to get a nice long period of hang-outage with my sissy poo.
I do need to prepare myself though, because every time I see her, she is more and more pregnant (um, duh) and it’s always a little jarring. As in, I pretty much just hone in straight on her belly and start to cry. Luckily, this surprises no one.
Poor, unaware readers who have found this job in the time between last Christmas and this one… I’m sorry. You are probably not yet aware of the extreme, dear, obsessive, passionate love I have for this time of year. I. LOVE. CHRISTMAS. And this year is, of course, no exception. Once Jenny & Dan get back into town, there will be much cookie decorating, gingerbread house making, eggnog drinking, and general merriment. Yayyyyyyy!
4. Les Mis
Speaking of Christmas, guess what movie comes out Christmas Day? Yep, Les Miserables! (Well, the musical movie, not to be confused with the non-musical movie that came out in 1998.) I am a die-hard Les Mis fan (I’ve seen the musical like five times, and would gladly see it a dozen times more) and am SO excited about the cast, the director, the everything. Ahhhhhh, it’s gonna be so gooooooood, ermahgerrrrrd.
5. Game of Thrones
I know this is kind of a jump, since the new season of Game of Thrones won’t be starting until March 2013 (whyyyyy?), but I really needed something to round out this list, since 5 Things always sounds better than 4 Things, hahaha. Anyway, if you’re not already a GoT fan, you need to load up on Seasons 1 & 2 ASAP, because it’s flippin’ amazing. Although, fair warning, there is not a small amount of boobage shown, hahahaha. Anyway, this is definitely one of the most highly anticipated shows on my list (y’know, given the fact that Vampire Diaries is already on TV… though this week is the last episode before the winter break, nooooo!) and I just wanted to spread the word. Jon Snow forevs!
Aaaaand, there you have it. Just a little taste of what’s whetting my appetite lately.
What upcoming things are you most excited for right now?
