OK, I know I can be a little slow sometimes. But did any of the rest of you realize 2011 is almost here?
I wrote the date on a form at work yesterday and then just sat there staring at it like a moron. Seriously? 2011 is just a few hours away?
When my agent told me MAKING WAVES would hit shelves August 2011, my brain registered the date as some distant era in which we'd all be flying around in spaceships and enjoying good healthcare. It seemed like a far away fantasy, as did my book release.
But holy crap, we're now just eight months out. I can't decide whether to be thrilled or terrified.
For now, I wish you all the very best 2011 possible. May all your dreams come true.
Wow, that was a cliché. Speaking of which, we're talking about "favorite quotes" at The Debutante Ball this week. If you stop by, you'll get to learn why I had to take my pants off to discover mine.
Also, I wanted to leave you with one final laugh for 2010. I don't watch daytime TV, but the clips of Ellen Degenres with the Shake Weight have been flying around the internet all year and making me laugh like someone's holding me down and tickling me. In case you've missed them (or if you just want a recap) here you go:

UPDATE: Thanks so much to Janet Reid, who kindly clued me in on how to make the video fit the screen!
