That Hollywood Girl

Sometimes, truly remarkable days come along and just douse one in blessings.

First, my story “Slush Puppy” won First Prize in the Hart House Review Literary Contest! You can pick up a copy of the Hart House Review at Hart House. It’s a beautiful issue.

Second, I went to my new job this morning just for an informal session and things there are more wonderful than I ever imagined. I feel incredibly fortunate to have got this position. It’s going to be a great way to spend the summer.

Third, even though my new job requires relatively informal attire, I went shopping today and spend about $300 on summer clothes and such. Specifying the amount is tacky I realise, and it might not seem like much to some, but if you know how little Stu and I have been living off of for the past year, you will understand why blowing $300 was such a pleasure.

And fourth, well, pictures speak louder than words. Here is a photo of a dream come true.

Oh, and welcome welcome summer!

    Congratulations on the prize. Someday you will win prizes for literature AND knitting socks.

    Ker – Congratulations. Any story with slush in the title is a winner as far as I’m concerned but I’m glad Hart House agrees. Bex and the Christian society would be mighty proud. xo Erin

    Congrads on the prize, Kerry.
    P.S. You missed out on cigars and rum. I got to light mine up three times–with a blowtorch!
