My copy of the book came in last night! I hadn't been home since lunch and when I returned last night, there it was. The glorious UPS box.
Naturally, I opened it immediately.
It's fantastic! I am so beyond excited to finally get this book. I haven't read it all yet, but I love how they put it together. They include the history of the original newsboys strike in 1899, then share how the movie was made in the 90s, and the rest is all about how it got to Broadway. Scattered throughout are stories and photos of fans about why they love the musical so much. They didn't use a story I shared, BUT they did use a photo I submitted.
So yeah... my face is in a book about Broadway and Disney.
While I realize having my face in this book isn't the biggest thing in the universe - I still think it's pretty awesome and it made everything in life happy.
Then... if that's not enough excitement for you... as I was searching for excited GIFS for this blog post I got a phone call for a second interview for a job that I REALLY REALLY WANT! The entire time I was on the phone I was all serious and professional face.
On the inside I was all Love Actually...
When I hung I proceeded to message other people to share in my excitement and we were all like the cast of Friends...
So, if you all have exciting news as well, please share so I can Kermit flail along with you because clearly the last 24 hours are all about excitement.
