Dear Universe

Dear Universe,

I've got a promise for you.

Are you listening?


If I get a book deal I promise to show up at The Today Show holding a glittery sign stating "I got a book deal!"

In fact, Universe, not only will I hold the sign, but I will make sure I'm holding the sign wearing lots and lots CANARY yellow (which, by the way, I don't even look good in. Yellow is totally not my color. But does that matter? No way!).

You know this promise is a big deal for me because I'm not a morning person. In fact, when I don't have to work, my mornings usually starts around 9:30 or 10:00 a.m. People know not to mess with my sleep in the morning, because I'm a very evil person when woken up early. But Universe, I'm all about getting up at the crack of dawn to make sure I'm right behind that rope holding my sign and I'll be happy and smiling even if the sun isn't up yet.

Watch for me, universe, because you'll be seeing me on TV in the future. I promise!

Thanks for all the great ideas, everyone and for voting. I loved getting your ideas and a couple of them gave me a good laugh. The Today Show idea won by a landslide.

Oh my goodness, I loved the book 13 Reasons Why! I mean, it caused tons of drama in my friend's life (hint: never read when you're right on the edge of suicide) but it was fantastically well-written and I loved it. And good luck while waiting for a book deal! Thanks for stopping by my blog, Nancy's a bit of a tyrant, truth be told, but as far as to-do lists go, she's pretty okay. :)
