This had been a pretty stellar day.

First of all, my latest Eric Stevens/SAB title, about basketball, BTW, is nearly done. It's due tomorrow, and I shouldn't have a problem wrapping it up before lunch. Tomorrow, that is. I would have finished it today, perhaps, but for. . . .

Lunch with Roo. That was great! Great conversation, great food even at Pizza Luce (apparently the vegan food is also quite good, as Roo was happy with his), and great to feel a sort of connection to back east. Though I know Oz would be better all around, it might be pretty cool to have a dude like Roo in the neighborhood. Okay, in the state. Of course, the downside of lunch, besides not finishing my Eric Stevens work, was missing a phone call.

From my agent! But after some email and voicemail and receptionist back-and-forth, we finally spoke, and YA MS the First is officially SOLD! I'm over the goddamn moon, and sorry to say "goddamn," but I think protagonist would have wanted me to say "goddamn." If not worse.

So yeah. Big day! The above made it fairly easy to ignore the fact that it snowed here on the last day of March. Some lamb.

Band practice tonight. I will celebrate the day with a couple of beers. Better hit the package store on the way to pick up some Two Hearteds.

Mmmmm . . . literary hops.

I'm sorry I made you miss the call! It was great seeing you. If I take the MN job (it's been officially offered), we'll do it more.

I feel psyched that I got to be a constituent in this milestone day for you. You'll be telling the story for a long time. I'm glad that there will always be the detail "...and I missed the phone call because I was busy taking an old schlub from HS out for lunch."

Thanks all!

And Roo, it only meant a little phone and email tag, which made it all the more exciting somehow.

And besides, you took me out to lunch, as I recall.

It's awesome when stuff works out like this, isn't it?!
