KD, so good to hear from you! A big double-CONGRATS for the major accomplishments of having the A faded to the past, and your graduation.

I want to hug you and spank you for what you said about talents. Please, do not doubt your wonderfulness. We each have our own talents, equally important, and what matters is if we make use of them. Sure, you'll be scared, but change is always scary. And you WILL do fine!!!!!!!! (That's an order! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />)

You are quite correct about Gargy, and I think that's the biggest reason why it is taking so much longer to have the experience fade. I have lots more to say on the subject of Taking Back My Hill, but will have to restrain myself a few more days till I finish my final edit.

Any attempts to get into his email are now history (insert smug laughter.) You can't hack into an email if you have no clue what it is.

Don't remember if I said this here, but when Yahoo failed to delete the old account, I filled it up with scads of copies of my book, which I copied and pasted into a 7,000k+ file, lolol. So by the time I logged out for the last time, it was overflowing, and nothing could be sent or received. All incoming messages now bounce back with a Mailer Daemon, to let the sender know it failed. Mwaaahaaahaaaa.

Since Neaksis didn't chime in for herself, I will answer on her behalf. She is doing pretty good, now has a 2yo foster kid in addition to the baby and her own 3, so she really has her hands full.

She paces every day, hoping the advance copies of the kids book will arrive. We are both dying to see the illustrations. (We have never been fully illustrated before. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />)

She is also excited about going to Boise next month to help promote said book. Naturally she will have to go shopping, as nothing in her closet is fit to wear! Ok, so I felt the need for a new outfit, too.

Give us a holler when you find out where you're going to be working, so we can all congratulate you some more!

A smooth sea never made a skilled mariner.
