Today, however, the mail was excellent--it contained:
- Two hand-written thank-you notes
- One ARC (yessssss!)
- One t-shirt and Author-Agent Agreement from a new client.
You'd think I'd feel silly going around in a yellow surfer tee (actually, I immediately put it on over my business casual, much to the amusement of my intern) that's so obviously California-style, but I'm quite pleased. Now I just need some Vans, a Roxy bag, and a hoodie--and I'll be hella stylin'.
I sometimes take Kendo (swords) classes. The shirt would be perfect, no? Dueling fish, dueling swords. (My instructor has since offered to fight a swordfish, but not in the ocean, which would be the fish's home turf--er, surf--and therefore an unfair advantage.) Good times.
