Barclay Gold and Bleh

I'm going to wait until I wake up Saturday morning to pick the winner of Janet's book, so if you want to be in the running, leave a comment in her post before then!

I don't feel good. I don't feel bad enough to stay home, but I don't feel good. I ache and I'm tired, but I don't have a fever. If we weren't having the science fair and tutoring today, I'd stay home, but that's too much for a sub to do.

I DID wake up to some good news! I placed third in the Barclay Gold contest! On the bulletin board in what was going to be my office is a printout of the first contest I ever made the list in. I placed 7th (I know!) with my very first book in the Barclay Sterling in 1997. And now this is my first published contest against the non-e-pubs. Oh, and Barclay is my maiden name. The list should be up today here.

Congratulations on the contest, pooh on the sickness.

Who's the guy in the pic? (says the woman without TV) He looks a little cross-eyed, but I think that's just the lighting.

Congratulations, Mary! And cool on the poetic circles. :)

Esri, that's Jared Padalecki, star of Supernatural and inspiration for one of Mary's heroes, though I can never remember which one. :) He's also in the upcoming Friday the 13th movie.

Thanks, Esri and Natalie!

I'm using Jared in my historical, and Vamp Hunters, and maybe in this new idea I have....
