JV's Happy 2011

So a new year, a fresh start, and already lots of fun things to look forward to. But first--why haven't you been to Coffey. Tea. And Literary. to enter our very first giveaway of the year??

This year in Confessions JV will bring you:

- An epic contest for querying writers

- A giveaway of evil proportions, THE ROTTEN ADVENTURES OF ZACHARY RUTHLESS by Allan Woodrow.


- Sage (hopefully?) advice on querying, revising, and submitting.

- Funny pictures of baby animals

- A guest post from PeeWee

- And much, much more!

So keep coming back, friends. You never know when something fun will be posted next. Or something really boring. But since you won't know unless you read the blog, then you MUST READ THE BLOG.

In the mean time, anyone else here an ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT fan? Then you'll appreciate this....

And Happy New Year!

What!?! I missed a giveaway? On my way ...

Alex said...

It's GOB MUSIC!!!!

Loretta Nyhan said...

My brother had hair like that. Seriously.

Hardygirl said...

DUDE. The pants. The perms. The synchronized head bob. GOB.

I'm in heaven, I tell you.


Wait, Loretta. Your brother had THAT HAIR????

Cacy said...

I am a fan and DO appreciate that.

And I have an anecdote you might appreciate. I was talking to a guy at work about magic and I said, "It's an illuuusion, Michael" and the guy I was talking to was actually named Michael (though he went by Mike) but the guy had never watched Arrested Development so it sailed right on over his head.

Louisa said...

Haha that brings back good memories. Gob! Oh canceled way too early.

So did he look at you weird? I actually think that's kind of awesome.

I do the chicken dance often (I favor Lindsay's...easier on the back...but Gob's is definitely the best). People thing I'm nuts. OR they get it. But mostly they think I'm nuts.

Joanna: Looking forward to many more great blog posts! And you seriously do the chicken dance? That is awesome! I laughed so hard when even Lindsay had her own chicken dance. And then Lucille! Oh man, they really nailed it on that one. "Has anyone in this family even seen a chicken?"

Cacy: that is so funny! Thanks for sharing :-)

Louisa: there are rumors that they are doing a movie. The official announcement is they only have 1/2 the script done, and it's been that way for years, but I'm still hoping!

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
