Oh Happy Day!

A new short story from Edward P. Jones (author of The Known World) in The New Yorker: Bad Neighbors

I've read it and it's excellent. It's still sitting with me in that uncomfortable way, deep in your stomach where you want to read it again immediately and then maybe even another time just to fully absorb the story into your system so that it is a part of you. Yes, it's that good, I loved it. Scoot scoot and read it right now!

Thanks to Moorish Girl for bringing it to my attention.

Update: I'm at 27 visits for my blog for today! I've never broken 30 visits in one day and I have a feeling today will be my day (well, if by the end of the night three more people don't visit my blog, I'll visit it three times my damn self). Wahoo, this is very exciting and a good day for people to visit my blog since I've gone blog crazy today... oddly enough, I've gotten a good amount done at work too. Hmm, is mai wen learning time management? I think so! Happy Day Indeed, it's even pint night at Fox and Hounds, and you know what that means.

Update #2: Wahoo, 35 visits, and I didn't even cheat, I swear! Thanks folks for stopping by, it makes all the hard work worth it. Also, I've been spammed. Does that mean that I'm moving up in the blog world too? I'm not really sure how blogs got spammed, but I'll take it as a compliment from Mr. Spammer. Hey, I take what I can get.

You really know you've made it when you have grudge comments posted on your blog. I've deleted them but it was a proud moment for me. Congrats on your stats.

Haha, the only slightly grudge comment I've gotten was from my brother, sigh, the pluses and minuses of having your family read your blog.

Thanks for the congrats! I know it's Just 35 people, but that's a lot of people when you think about it. I get really excited when a friend I haven't talked to in a while tells me they check my blog regularly. It's really a cool thing.
