Celebrate The Small Things- November 22

It's time for our weekly celebration with Viklit!  Click on the link to see everybody celebrating!

It's been a banner week in the life of Bev so I've got lots to celebrate!

Goodies  I know I'm repeating myself yet again but I just got my award bundle from my Spooktoberfest win and I have to say that Jackie Felger is one of the most generous, fun and mind-blowingly awesome ladies ever.  EVER!  Check out the amazing spread:
Ridiculous, right?  I was completely and utterly shocked at the amount of sheer joy contained in that one box and totally unprepared for it when I took the unassuming package in from my front stoop.  I'm just floored.  My huge, unending thanks goes to Jackie for this truly amazing gift!

Job Interview  I had a job interview on Wednesday morning and it went really, really well.  Not only because I got really good feedback from the woman who interviewed me but because I genuinely enjoyed the conversation.  Yes, I was talking about myself a lot and, let's face it: we all tend to enjoy that.  But also, engaging with another intelligent clinician about the work that we do was just really energizing.  I came out of there super stoked and  I am 90% certain that I will be getting the call for the second interview.  Fingers crossed!

4K in One Day  (Hee, hee- I rhymed!)  Thanks to a marathon NaNo session via Skype with my friends in Virginia I was able to hit my largest single-day word count of the month and am now ahead of par.  50K gets closer everyday!  Yay for me!

Skype  It is such a fantastic invention.  Not only did I get to do a marathon NaNo session with friends in Virginia, I also got to do a lovely video chat with my friend in New Jersey.  It was more wonderful than I can say.  Really- my friends are angels and I love them to death.  Shelly, Jemma, Nessa: I love you!

What about all of you?  Is NaNo success looming on the horizon?  Are you gearing up to stuff yourselves with Turkey next week?  Any big news in bloggerdom?  Let's all hop along and find out!  Happy Friday!
