I used the Sugar Bowl of despair to help me determine the winner of SOMEWHERE TODAY: a BOOK OF PEACE. (Okay, so I just put lots of little slips of paper in the bowl and picked one out.)
The winner is:
So, Kelly, drop me an e-mail at storyqueen at gmail dot com with your address and I'll get your book and bag out to you asap.
And now for something completely different:
Recent Strange Dreams
1. I dreamed I was being pursued by a strange little wolf boy. He was kind of terrifying. (Understatement, in the dream I was COMPLETELY terrified of him...however when I picture him now, he looks like Max from WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE but with blond hair. Meh.)
There was a moment in the dream when he was outside and suddenly he put his hand/paw against a dark window pane. I just might have the kind of noise you make in a dream when you are really hoping someone will wake you up. Not quite a scream, but.....kind of a weird breathing, snorting noise.
2. I dreamed Neil Gaiman and his wife came over for dinner but I lived in a treehouse instead of my real house. Living in a treehouse was COOL! However, I was too embarrassed to ask Neil to sign my copy of THE GRAVEYARD BOOK. Wha?
(If you are wondering what we ate, it was some kind of chicken with an orange-looking sauce...maybe a red curry. With rice. Neil and Amanda seemed to like it.)
3. I dreamed I was on a boat and I had to get down to San Diego, but the boat just wouldn't move. At all. (Woke up in a bad mood after that one, I can tell you.)
Strange dreams anyone?
