This, That & The Other Thing(s)

), but the Giants are the only NFL team I’ve ever loved. It started in high school when my English teacher used to do soda can bets on the Sunday games. I picked the Giants and have stuck with them since. My mother loves to tell the story of the time (in my sophomore year) she took me to NY and spent the whole day showing me the sites…you know, The Empire State Building, Ellis Island, The Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Tiffany’s…and I, being oh-so-wise, was more impressed driving by Giant Stadium on the way into the city than I was on anything she had to show me. So when I found out the Giants were going to be playing in the Super Bowl this year – even better times. And when they won? Amazing. You can’t help but love the underdogs. (And that Eli – wow…)

In other news, after I got home last night I stayed up and finished my revisions. (I can hear the collective cheering from you all, yeaaaaaaah!). No idea why I stayed up until 2 AM doing revisions after a weekend of very little sleep, but I had the bug, so I went with it. Now I have to read the thing from beginning to end and figure out if it makes any sense with the changes I made. Cross your fingers for me. Hopefully I’ll have this ms out the door to my agent by early next week.

And because I’m sharing this, that and other things…I thought I’d pass on some good things happening for friends of mine. Lin has her new cover, and it’s gorgeous. Go check it out at her blog if you haven’t seen it yet. Carol has some fabulous news to share as well, so hop over to her blog and wish her good luck. Jenny sold her first book a few weeks ago (click on Contemporary (general) and scroll down to The Wedding War…way to go, Jen!), and if you’re in the mood for a good, quick, light-hearted, romantic read, pick up Roxanne St. Claire’s Tis The Silly Season novella in A NASCAR Holiday, which came out from HQN last year. Rocki won the RITA for this one last summer, and I finally got around to reading it on the plane coming home from Reno. Loved it.
That’s all from me. I’m off to get started reading my revisions again. Drop me a note and let me know how you’re doing!
