Comments: A List Unlisted *UPDATED!*

Oh, Exalted Novellous One, pray tell me again about the smashing of the egg into the hot grease -- in which the edges are all crispy and delicious! *yum*

Blessed are those who pre-order, for they shall receive "first printings".

I say-"Give it up." It's like unto not putting your tongue in the space where you lost a tooth.

Glad you are feeling better.

Just to add another twist... I pre-ordered your book just this weekend (of course I wanted it because I know it will be good, but I also needed to qualify for some free shipping on another book!) but I ordered it through Chapters.ca because I live in Canada and have a 'spends-her-weight-in-books' card with them. So do you have a Chapters ranking number??

I have pre-ordered your book, too. Hope that helps your ranking. Of course, you are the first book I've ever bought before it came out. I'm usually not one for prolonged gratification...especially in the buying of books.

Talk about crazy...I've ordered two.

It sounds like the calm before the storm over there. You are so funny. Since a blog is not a book, I can only relate RIGHT NOW by admitting I check my site meter around 4 times a day. Lately my blog has slipped in humber of visits - and it stresses me. What will I be like when my book sells? You, I hope.

You are my VERY BESTEST FRIEND, and not just because I appear sane when compared to you. But that certainly is a fringe benefit for me, Squirrel Girl.

I refuse to pre-order, because that would mean I would have nowhere to go on April 13th!! I can't wait to pull your book off an actual shelf at Borders and proclaim to everyone in my general area "I KNOW THIS WOMAN!!" Talk about mentally ill...but if you can't live vicariously through your friends, what good are they? ;)

I may hit Barnes & Noble and B. Dalton, too.

Have I ever told you you're my hero? :D
No, seriously, all Bette Midler background themes aside, you ARE my hero, and this is why. Not because you are a fabulous Published Author, although that's very nice. And not because you are my Favorite Blogger Ever, even though of course you are, if you can seduce me out of lurking like this. But because no matter what, you ALWAYS outdo yourself in Mental Illness ranking in the very most hilarious way possible to be thought of, thus making me laugh, but also making mefeel as if maybe my own rampant, raging,don't-look-it-in-the-eye insanity is perhaps not quite so extraordinarily uncommon and shameful as I thought, and therefore QUITE socially acceptable, and even, dare I say, FASHIONABLE, 'cuz Look! All the coolest Book People are this way!
See? You are so utterly fabulous that you forced a ridiculous run-on sentence from me, and I barely even cringe at it. :D
Why do I tell you this now? Because of course once your book comes out you will be far above the lowly peon lurkers like myself...but also because your blog is the only thing that made me laugh out loud at a very very difficult time, and be able to remember that grief passes in time, as all things do, and faster than most other things, if you're me. Thanks for somehow inexplicably reminding me to be myself.
