La La La

I've always loved the rejected epigraphs for Dave Eggers's A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, one of which is:

"Ooh, look at me, I'm Dave! I'm writing a book!
With all my thoughts in it! La la la!"
-- Toph Eggers (the author's little brother)

With all due respect to both Mr. Eggerses:

Here I am! I'm Cheryl! And I wrote a book! With all my thoughts in it!

And I am happy. That is all.


  1. That's a great picture of you! You look as happy as you rightly should! :)

  2. Congratulations! I can't wait to read it--so I can learn how to have a la la la moment of my own one day! So excited for you!

  3. Congrats, I can't wait to read it!

  4. Congratulations, Cheryl!! That's awesome!

    La la la indeed. :)

  5. How awesome! It's a great picture of you. Can't wait for your interview with me on Literary Rambles on Friday.

  6. Totally La! With extra helpings of LA and LAAAA! Yay, you!

  7. Your picture says it all! And I love the cover! Congratulations! Yes, La LAA LAAAA.....

  8. Congrats, Cheryl. Bet these aren't ALL your thoughts, though.
