Two Packages In The Mail


Badass Geek had a fun little contest that I participated in and was one of the lucky blogs to win a Badass Geek pin. My pin arrived in the mail today and I put it on my sweatshirt as soon as I opened the package. Thank you to Badass Geek and The Boss for the pin. My pin is one of the eye heart Badass Geek pins.

Also, in today's mail, I received a book from Lou at Subdural Flow. The title of the book is This Is Not The Life I Ordered--50 Ways to keep your head above water when life keeps dragging you down, by four women: Deborah Collins Stephens, Jackie Speier, Jan Yanehiro and Michealene Cristini Risley. I read the Contents, Acknowledgments, Introductions, and Preface right away, and will begin reading the book tomorrow.
Thank you, Lou!

Wow, that was fast. I just mailed it Monday or Tuesday. Please send me an email and let me know what you think of it;)

well, I guess it's safe to say that the blogosphere is really adding substance to your life. Awesome! And I would like to know about the book, too.

Does anyone ever really get the life they ordered?

How fun! I love getting prizes in the mail. From what I know, I'd guess a book is the perfect prize for you. :)

BTW, I had never heard of a bakery van before, either. I thought you were blogging about it because it was so unusual. But I do remember ice cream trucks.

And, yes, I love donuts and cupcakes and cakes and danish. Especially cupcakes. And donuts. And... lol

Great stuff. Glad that you had those nice surprises.

The pin is fun and the book sounds interesting. I missed out on being able to order a life, but I probably would have ordered wrong anyway. I'll be interested to hear what you think about the book.

Oh, nice to win stuff!
I've read that book a few months ago, it's quite good!
I'm always reading something.
Enjoy it!

Have a great evening!

Margie :)

Those pins are a RIOT! And the book title intrigues me, I've not heard of it before. I may need to check that out. Thanks!

Congrats on the pin and the book too. I'll have to pass the title of the book along to my daughter Mandy and maybe she can pick up a copy next time she visits Barnes & noble.

Getting cool stuff in the mail is akin to Christmas!

The buttons are great!

Ooh, big yummy mail day. Thank you for telling us about this book, which sounds great. I heart Badass Geek, too.

We probably all get the life we ordered to learn the lessons we need to learn. That's my philosophical Buddhist la-la take on it. My other take is that sometimes, life sucks and I want a do-over.
