I am very funny. :) This morning the doorbell rang as I pulled Young Indiana’s diaper off to expose a POOPY BUTT. I went ACK and leapt up to rush to the door because the only reason the doorbell rings at this hour is if there’s a mail delivery! I whipped the door open and said “quick! quick! i’m changing the baby’s diaper!”

the poor man apologized and started laughing and handed me the form to sign for BOXES OF BOOKS! Young Indiana came to see what was going on, poopy butt stuck in the air because he doesn’t like crawling on the carpet with nekkid knees. We laughed even harder! I signed the form and scooped the baby up, yelling things like, “No, no! Don’t sit down! No! Whew!” and got him all changed without a Disaster.

And then I got to open boxes of BOOKS!

I think this is still my favorite part of writing. :)


I’ll be sending advance copies of SPIRIT DANCES to oh, we’ll say half a dozen random commenters on this post. :)

AHA oh god baby butts. Speaking of, like three of my friends are now pregnant and I want to point them at your lj so they realise that yes, you need to juggle poopy butts with other stuff. I don't think they realise what they're in for.

That cover looks -amazing-. Your artist is a gem.

I can't even think how to spell the weird noise I made when I saw the all those books. I'm stupidly excited about finding out what happens next.

Also, I love funny baby stories. Just as long as my mum isn't telling any about me ;-)

anything in the mail that isnt a bill is a good thing! Except of course, for used diapers.

I am, of course, now trying to hum the Indiana Jones themesong to the phrase, 'Indiana.. Jones... Indiana's.. pooopy buttttt!" It isn't working well. I blame the 5 hours of sleep. ;)

I commented on twitter, but I'll comment here, too.

Oh, they're beautiful. I've been rereading the Walker Papers books to get in the mood for this one.

I can't imagine the kind of buzz that comes from seeing your own name on real solid published books - hopefully the poop wasn't a buzz-kill!

Oh man, they're so pretty looking! *pets the screen*

lol! That's a great story. :) Congrats on making it through to a happy, non-poopy ending.

And hey! She's got (half of) a head! Cool!
