I Am Stunned!

I’ve never been able to really figure Twitter out. I do have an account, and I do check it once in awhile, I just don’t use it much. I figure it’s mostly because I tend to be too long-winded to limit myself to 140 characters, including punctuation marks, and spaces. And except for the occasional LOL or ROTF, I don’t abbreviate. That means Twitter frustrates me, forcing me to slaughter sentences. But when I was checking a little bit ago, for the first time in probably a month, my jaw just about hit the floor.


Because someone I don’t even know retweeted a post. And that post said…

One of my novels was listed on the books page … in USA Today!

I am completely speechless. Okay, so I’m not exactly speechless, but I am thrilled and excited – and if I weren’t so tired because it’s my bedtime, I’d be doing a happy dance all over the house.

So I just wanted to share that as I head off to dreamland. Now, hopefully, I’ll be able to fall asleep. 🙂

Yup. I kind of know how Rocky felt at the end of this video.

      Well … I’ll let you know the moment I get past ‘when,’ and then you can say it. 🙂

      But thank you. And I never forget anyone. Unless they invite me over for liver, green bean casserole, and Brussels sprouts. And then I tend to have memory lapses. 😀 😀 😀

  4. High Five! Guess that just means you need to check your Twitter at least once a week, huh? 😉

    • Kristy K. James says:

      Thank you, ma’am. And if I would try to check Twitter once a week, but I think I’m allergic to it. I will try to do better though. Probably time to post a note on my bathroom mirror (my version of a message board). 😉

      Hey, Jenny! Nice to see you here. I check your blog periodically, but so far nothing after the gingerbread house post that I’ve been able to find. That was a nag, hint by the way. 😀

  6. That’s so cool! Congrats!
