Friday is For Getting (and Getting Away With) Stuff

If you're one of my Facebook friends, or follow me on Twitter, you may have already seen this. If so, sorry for the repeat. But I think it bears repeating, because I love it.

My baby little younger brother (he's no longer a baby, and he's taller than me) sent me this:


It's necklace. The open book is engraved with the title of my first (about-to-be) published book, In a Fix, on one side, and my initials on the other.

Is that not the most perfect gift ever for a writer? Supremely thoughtful.

And to think, he used to be such a brat ... ;)

(Thank you, Eddie!)

Now, if you want to read a real post, head on over to The Debutante Ball (by, yannoh, clicking on that link), where this week we're discussing "getting away." Of course, being me, I had to take it one step further and make that "getting away with it."

So, tell me, have you gotten away with anything fun lately? 

And/Or, what's the the coolest gift you ever got?

What a beautiful necklace -- and yes, it's the perfect gift for a writer.

You probably saw the lovely Christmas ornament that a student's mother made me back in December -- she painted the cover of my book on a Christmas tree ball.

That is absolutely beautiful! What an awesome bro. Hmmm...every day that I am not working in an office...I feel like I am getting away with something. ;-) Happy weekend!

Only thing I got away with lately is this morning, I actually changed the sheets on our bed without the assistance of both cats. (Unheard of!) (And not nearly as fun ...)

WOW! Coming from a family of non-gift givers and generally non-clever gift givers even when there is a gift, I am absolutely stunned by this! It is beautiful. I bet Tiffany is jealous.

That is an absolutely perfect gift. Good thing you let him live when he was making you crazy years ago.

Can't get away with nothing. Being watched too closely by the man. Just kidding. No men in my life, unfortunately.
