He Takes His Coffee...

... like he takes his, um, death metal?

Actually, no. He takes his coffee like he takes his cereal, with a cup of vanilla soy-milk. His beer? Well, that's another story.

In other news: Last night I submitted the final chapter of my mommy manuscript with one day to spare. And for those of you who asked-- the book is scheduled for January '08 release and is called, "Rockabye: A Young Mom's Journey From Wild to Child." (Seal Press) I will be sneak-peaking the cover, soon, which is AMAZING. Designers gone done me good. Woo! Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm about to go have a Rocky moment on the top of the Hollywood Sign.

Gonna fly noooooooow!

Congratulations, woman!

And the book release is perfect timing for me! I'll be home with the new little one and in those sleepless nights, I'll need something to crack open to keep me awake while the little one feeds.
