I hate to blog today because I wanted to leave the COVER on top for another day or two because I am SO digging reading the comments AND I want to respond to them, but a MOMENTOUS EVENT occurred, and I had to tell you. SO after this scroll down and look, okay, if you were not here yesterday. BUT NOW!!! Drumroll please!


This is a big deal, as you may remember.

It was INSANE! I did SUCH a bad job (as per usual) that I SHOULD NOT HAVE WON. I was handed these PERFECT hands, triples and full houses and flushes and 2 pairs, and I would BOGGLE at them, and giggle, and bet madly, and the people at the table would say, “OH COME ON! She HAS to be bluffing THIS TIME!” And I NEVER WAS. I don’t think I even know how. It was all luck, zero skill, but you know what???? I WILL TAKE IT!!! YAR YAR YAR!!!!!

I cannot do a victory dance because I have co-ordination of a dead drunk sloth in a wind machine. BUT. If you turn your speakers up and clicky clicky on the following link, you will see and hear the perfect physical expression of how I feel INSIDE.

"Dancing Bird" videos usually don't do it for me, but that one was awesome, he made me laugh aloud! And yes, he IS the perfect expression for that feeling (though now I'm kinda curious to see you dance like a drunk sloth in a wind machine).

Oh, I love that dancin' bird. Made me laugh until my eyes leaked. And he bows at the end!

Truly a marvelous stand-in for dead drunk sloth, with or without a wind machine.

Congrats on the poker winnings too.
