I worked up an entire blog entry for my last day of bragging, full of quotes and links, but I decided the heck with it, I'd start my New Year's resolution a day early.
Instead of bragging, here's a lovely painting that King Juan Carlos and his darling wife Sofia commissioned for my Chanukah present. They sent it media mail, so it only arrived this afternoon.
I think Mr. Velazquez captured both my inner and outer beauty, even if he did keep addressing me as Infanta. Or maybe it was Infantile. I was so busy posing, I couldn't really hear him.
As I bid farewell to 2007 (waah! I really loved 2007), I'll copy here, in its entirety, my favorite review of Life As We Knew It. Harcourt probably won't be using it, but I think it's so fabulous I'm going to bold the whole thing:
Life As We Knew It Susan Beth Pfeffer This book was soo predictable! The electricity is off now its on now its off now its on! School is canceled! Omg were so hungry, lets watch the news but we can't since the power is off! I don't want to spoil the ending for people who actually want to read it so its way down there: At the end nobody really important dies they just eat alot of food and live! Thats the WORST ending i've ever seen... Reviewed by Melina, 12
Here's to lots of food and wonderful endings. Happy and Healthy New Year to each and every one of you.
