My Thank You Speech

Imagine my surprise when I received the latest newsletter from School Library Journal, and I was IN it. Underneath an awesome vampire Barbie unearthed (not literally) by Fabulous Agent Kate, no less. I'm not sure it gets any better than that. Snarfalicious supernatural creatures and librarians are two of my favorite things. If anyone knows any snarfalicious supernatural librarians, my birthday is in November.

In honor of this momentous newslettery occasion, I'd like to say a few words for posterity's sake.

I owe my success to a lot of people, some of whom are even REAL, or at least I'm pretty sure they are. But then again, I firmly believe that zombie piranha are the epitomy of kewl, so it's probably not wise to trust in my perception of reality. If you think you should be on this list and you are in fact a real person, consider yourself thanked. If you think you should be on this list but are not in fact a real person, please blow yourself up because cyborgs really creep me out.

Unless they are played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in which case they make me laugh.

Anyway, now I am feeling all important and kewl, so I think I'll need to reflect that here at The Wonder That Is My Blog. So from now on, Carrie shall refer to herself in third person.

Nah. Not impressive enough. Maybe we shall start using the royal "we" to refer to ourselves.

Booooring. How about this? From now on, I shall be known as She Who Follows Vampire Barbies (and Occasionally Librarians). Only not like a stalker. More like an admiring person who skulks a lot.

Wow, this just keeps getting worse and worse. How about you forget everything I just said and replace it with: "Holy bleep! I'm in the School Library Journal newsletter! That rocks!"

Carrie Harris- looking to take over the publishing world one page at a time. How freakin' cool (kewl) are you!

Aaron Polson said...

Kewl. School Library Journal rocks.

Good job - Congratulations.

You might think about printing out & keeping copies of cool stuff like great reviews, 1st checks, magazine articles, emails from readers & teachers (my favorite), book signing pics, etc. Years from now, when you're old like me, you can leaf through that stuff & smile - when no one's around to bring you back to reality.

Have a great day.

That's my band member/partner! Woohoo! The Barbie vamp is pretty awesome. Maybe if I ever buy a Barbie for my girl I'll add fangs.

Cool! You need to paste a copy into your scrapbook. If you don't have a scrapbook, now would be a perfect time to start one.

Kiersten said...

You are officially Too Cool.

OMG! You ARE in the School Library Journal Newsletter! No one is kewler than you. Except maybe Fabulous Agent Kate.

Nice work!

ElanaJ said...

That's fantastic news! Congrats!

Carrie Harris said...

Awww. All of you are definitely on the list of people to be thanked and not on the list of people who need to blow themselves up because they are not in fact people.

Just in case there was any confusion about that. :)

Big Plain V said...

Ummm... you never finished the bit about what we're supposed to call you now.

And you don't want me using the descriptors that are immediately coming to mind. (Let's just say they're words that have to do with questionable sanity.)

Stephanie Perkins said...

Whoa, awesome!! Major huge congratulations!

Solvang Sherrie said...

You are made of awesome! Congratulations! Love the Barbie photo. And the story's good too :^)
