...oh, lord, I don't know why I'm reacting to this in lolcat. But it's true: I heard back from my PopMatters editor this evening, and he's more than delighted to accept my Holiday piece. He was so delighted, in fact, that I'm blushing a little as I, er, carefully store the email away for rereading. On a regular basis.

Honestly, this is just the most fabulous feeling. I hope it never gets old. I mean, I hope I have a chance to find out one way or another, but just in case, I wouldn't mind experiencing that heart leap over and over again. Except next time I may try not to have it happen at Tim Horton's. I have no memory of what happened between checking my email and arriving home with [checks bag] a key lime donut.

Which is OK, I guess, I like key lime. But I like BEING PUBLISHED BETTER! WOOOOOOOOT!

...ah, yeah, needs work, I know. I suppose it's the old touchdown thing - act like you get into the endzone on a regular basis, not like it's a huge honking surprise. Thing is, though, it is. Especiallly in re: opinion pieces like this. If some small part of you isn't honestly amazed when somebody confirms your random thoughts are good enough to be broadcast to the public wholesale, I'm thinking you've got serious issues.

Also needing work is the title - my editor (and yes, I intend to refer to him in the possessive at every possible opportunity, so get used to it now) isn't familiar with the movie, so has asked me for suggestions. As can be gathered from the original header (which references an old REM lyric) me and snappy titles, they don't come automatic. I told him I'd ponder...and meanwhile, I'm throwing it open to the readership. Any and all suggestions welcome.
