An all good-news post

0. The winner of the Gucci shirt is Jessica of GoochMedia. Congratulations! Go check out her beautiful photos.

Jessica, please email me at snackishblogATyahoo and I will get your Fabulous Prize in the mail.

1. Baby Skyller came through surgery with flying colors. I talked to my brother, who said the little guy looks good, the docs are happy and his wife(my niece's mom) and her sister are back in Illinois to help my niece get adjusted to having 2 little boys instead of just one. Yay.

2. I went to a book signing by my old pal Colette last night. When I met her, she was a Motel 6 maid who smoked a lot of pot. Today she is the author of a 500-page book and is working on another. I may have burst a few buttons as I watched her address the crowd.

The other good part is that I am really, really enjoying the book. I have ripped through about 130 pages so far and I can't wait to read the rest.

I made Colette sign it "To Suebob, my very best friend in the whole world." Snort. I crack myself up.

3. I have found the Holy Grail: a hair stylist who listens to me. Someone who didn't cut my hair so that it needs 3 products and 45-minutes of blow drying with multiple-use round brushes to get the same effect. And someone who wanted to charge such a small price that I yelped at him "There is NO WAY I am giving you that little."

Can you hear the heavenly harps and see the skies opening? Forsooth, it must be a miracle.

Glad to hear that the baby is well. I hope that you will get to see him while you are in Chicago for BlogHer.

Also, thanks for the book recommendation. It sounds great. I'm definitely going to get it.

A good hair stylist is a gift from the gods.

I still go to mine every time I am in Florida.

OMG you said forsooth! He must be good.

I am glad that baby is ok. I hope you get to lay eyes on him soon.

As for the hairstylist - DONT recommend him to anyone, or you won't be able to get in anymore!!

Glad the mood is improving~

Oh a stylist who listens...you did indeed find the Holy Grail.

I'm so glad Skyller is doing well.

I love the good news, all the good news. I'm quite envious of #3, but with a twist: I'm looking for a hairstylist who doesn't talk.
