Two Happy Clips (totally unrelated)

Earlier this week, as I hope you all know, the ALA gave out its book awards. I woke up at 4am to hear the winners announced live and was very pleased by the selections. As far as the books I'd never heard about (which always happens with these things), I am now happy to know about them!

I didn't post anything on my blog following the announcements because I didn't feel there was anything I could add to the conversation...and I was just too dang busy reading what everyone else had to say!

But today I found this clip, and I wanted to share it with any of you who haven't seen it. I was just so moved by how happy (and maybe slightly dazed by the whirlwind) Rebecca Stead and Jerry Pinkney looked during their Today Show visit. This was taped just one day after they received The Big News. Be prepared to share in their joy!

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

And now, just because this trailer for an upcoming movie has my still hyperactive inner '80s-child flipping out, I present to you...

I'm SO going to watch this movie. The A-Team, heroes of my childhood.
I expect a lot of action and no story at all. I'll love it!

I'm 16, and I do not know much about the A-Team, but the trailer looks really good. =)

Oh my goodness, I just stopped by to say hi and my husband got ALL EXCITED about the A-Team trailer. Maybe I should think about putting more fugitives and their hijinks in my work to capture some of that elusive male storytelling energy? ;)

fun to watch the author and illustrator on the Today show, but wow - such a surface-level interview. but I forget, I don't really watch that show. So happy for them!
thanks for sharing it, Jay!
Namaste and a Hug,
