...

Okay, so I was going to do a Bookanista post today, but I was too lazy to do it. I can't do another list, because I did a (potentially lame) one on Tuesday. I'm not blogging tomorrow, and I'm taking next week off, so this is my last post of 2010.

It has to be good.

And...

Yeah.

This is it.

I could tell you that I like that Target commercial where Santa is running in to get a last minute gift.

But that's ghetto.

I could tell you that I've started watching Seinfeld again, and every episode is just as good as I remember.

But that just shows how old I am.

I could tell you that I've eaten out at least once every day this week.

But that just illustrates...something about me. I'm not sure what.

So I guess I'll just say this: 2011 IS GOING TO BE THE YEAR OF AWESOME.

Are you ready?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Elana!

Now I don't feel the pressure to leave a fabulous comment.

Funny thing is I have this piece I'm burning to post but who will read it this week? I'll either put it up and leave it up for a long time or wait until the new year.

Happy New Year, Elana. May it be even better than the last.

Dude I LOVE Seinfeld like a family member!!!

Puffy shirts, master of your domain, GET OUT, Festivus and all! It's my favorite of all time.

And um, YES I'm ready for a fantastic year (please).

Ted Cross said...

I hope 2011 will be splendid. I'll move to Budapest in August, which I think will be great, and hopefully I'll get the majority of my second book done.

Have a great holiday!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Have a happy holiday. I know 2011 will be awesome. Can't wait to read your book and hoping I'll be querying. Thanks for being such an awesome friend.

Really? I'm partial to that commercial (I think it's for Best Buys) with the elves and the creepy snowman that comes to life and does a little Vegas style song and dance.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! See ya in 2011!

Jen Daiker said...

Target commercials are genius.

Re-watching Seinfield doesn't make you old as long as you don't mention how long again you watched it the first time.

I am also guilty of this.

I'm ready. I can't wait for the release of Possession, it's going to ROCK!

Rebecca said...

I'm so ready for the year of awesome! :-)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year of Awesomeness!

Shannon Schuren said...

Have you ever noticed how Seinfeld is totally relevant to daily life? Just this week, I finally kicked the cold that has been kicking my butt for the past two weeks and I declared it a Festivus Miracle! I also use "Serenity Now!" much more often than I should. But I am a preschool teacher . . .

Happy Festivus!

Paul Greci said...

Wishing you a wonderful 2011, Elana!

(I'm glad someone else is watching Seinfeld, too.)

lbdiamond said...

Enjoy your blogging break. See you in 2011. ;)

Merry Christmas, Elana! And here's to the year of awesome!

Melissa said...

LOL, I LOVE that commercial! Makes me glad I'm done with my shopping.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and here's to an awesome 2011!

Faith said...

Hubby and I started re-watching Seinfeld from season one about a year ago. We're three episodes from the end of season nine now... then what'll we do?!? No other show has ever come close to being THAT consistently hilarious. Except maybe Arrested Development and Better Off Ted, both of which had too-short lifespans due to stupid networks. Blah. Enjoy Seinfeld!

Suzie F. said...

LOVE Seinfeld!
I was so sad when it ended but love to watch the reruns.

Have an awesome Christmas and can't wait for the Year of Awesome to begin!

Jeff King said...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year... 2011, will be what I make it.

Merry Christmas, Elana! Looking forward to reading your book next year (hopefully on the Kindle I think is under the tree)!

T C Mckee said...

A year of "Awesome" will be just well...AWESOME! Can't wait to read all the goodies coming out next year including one in particular(WINK). Have yourself a very Merry Christmas:)

Yes ma'am, I am. Thank you. Have a fantabulous week. Merry Christmas!

Little Ms J said...

I LOVE your new layout. So beautiful! Merry Christmas, doll! Hope 2011 brings you everything and more!

Alyssa@Teens Read and Write said...

I love the Target commercial too. Am I ghetto now? Cool. I'm usually so boring white bread.

What's Seinfeld?
Just kidding.

Enjoy your time off! Merry Christmas and Happy New Awesome Year!

Donea Lee said...
