Alright so I'm sure you all saw the Challenge Donna dealt me last night--like things weren't challenging enough! But seriously this was a challenge I totally asked for. I've wanted to be done with my revisions--done meaning I can give it to gamma readers and have only minor minor nitpicky things to deal with later so I can start the query process--and I wanted to finish in December. Lo and behold...it's DECEMBER! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhh!!
So giving me until 11:59PM Jan 1st is quite generous!
And HARD! GAH!!!
If only I was on normal vacation like all the other college professors but I'm working this week, so that means coming straight home and revising until I drop.
In light of this, I decided I totally needed a theme song! In fact I woke up at 5am in need of my theme song (and now that I picked one I had better sleep later tomorrow OMGZZZZZ). I can only guess what you'd all imagine my theme song for challenge week to be...given my penchant for Shakira and really horrible youtube videos---seriously if you're on twitter start a youtube war with me--it's awesome. No really.
So thus comes my theme song and you can make sense of my wacky blog title.
It's a mash up of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit and Destiny's Child Bootylicious called Smells Like Teen Booty by Soulwax! Ok how awesome is that? Seriously. Glee, please add that to your line up because it would rock.
Want a dose of the awesomeness and what's in my ipod right now? Check it out below.
And here's the awesome performance by inFusion Tribal BellyDance that introduced me to this mash up a few years ago. It's so cute!
Ok so here's the update....
Chapters Revised: 12
Chapters to be revised with CP notes: 3
Total Chapters Remaining: 10
Days Left: 4.5
I know you traitors are hoping to see me do this by the end of the week....
But my vote is here!
Ok try to not get that in your head, and yeah I totally know the Lil Jon Mash up:-)
Now it's CONTEST TIME!
I was hoping to reach 200 followers by 2010 and I'm totally ahead with 205 followers because you guys are AWESOME! Yay you!!! Thanks for following my blog and hanging out with me and being so supportive.

And..now I'll show you how this works in case what I just said makes no sense.
1 entry is awarded to Joey!!
But 1 entry isn't good enough for Joey, he's a model, he needs more. So he goes to Patrick.
Joey: Patrick, See that blog? That's Frankie Diane's blog. I want you to follow her and enter her contest.
Patrick: Yeah, sure Sparky.
Joey: Look, I can't win these awesome arcs unless I get more entries.
Patrick: Touching story, but not my problem.
Joey: Would you be willing to make it your problem if I provide compensation?
Patrick: You're going to pay me to follow some chic's blog? Hang on (signs online) Oh screw you're money. Frankie is awesome! She's just too gooooood to be true...
Joey: Ok stop singing!
So now Joey has 2 entries and Patrick has 1.
But Patrick wants more...
Kat: Why are you pushing this? What's in it for you?
Patrick: Nothing is in it for me! Just the pleasure of being able to discuss her latest post with you!
Kat: Really? It's not the fact that you can win extra contest entries for her massive arc giveaway?
Kat: Ok fine, I'll enter, Frankie's awesome.
Patrick: Kiss me!
Kat has 1 entry
Patrick has 2 (1 for him and 1 for Kat)
Joey has 3 (1 for himself, 1 from Patrick, and 1 from Kat)....because all entries get grandfathered in.
Ok got it? Comment and persuade away and I'm going back to my challenge.
Oh yeah--Contest ends at midnight JAN 15, 2010!!!
