The Whoop Heard 'Round The World

I'd already begun my post this morning, thinking to talk about some new writing opportunities. I planned to tell of the book fresh from the publisher I'll be reading and reviewing online, and the guest blogging I may be doing for a family website (details for both to come at a later time).

But then, during a moment of distraction (I swear, it was only a moment!), I began perusing eBay for AlphaSmarts. When I stumbled across a 3000 model and mentioned it to Mike, who was within feet of me, he said, "Wouldja buy it already and quit buggin' me?" It was then that I let out The Whoop Heard 'Round The World. Yep, that was me. I can still feel the shockwave of excitement, which hit me when I clicked the BuyItNow button. Whew, what a rush.

And here she is:

Look at how sleek, how shiny she is. She's coming from Texas where, I can only hope, she was loved and lead a fulfilling life. One that prepared her for the warm welcome I'll give her. She'll come with the USB cable needed to hook 'er up to my computer when the time comes, but I'll invest in some batteries and a nice, comfy satchel she can call home. I shall call her Sally.
