A Filk of Celebraton

To the tune of 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight'

(I'm not insane I'm not insane I'm not insane I'm not insane...)

In the brainpan, the damaged brainpan,
The dragon sleeps tonight...
Oh in the brainpan, the damaged brainpan,
The dragon sleeps tonight...

Who-eeee.... the sequel to Promises is done...

Hush my darling, and sleep my darling
The dragon sleeps tonight...
The kids are sitting upon your lap now
The dragon sleeps tonight...

Who-eeeee... it's done but the editing's still there.

(I'm not insane I'm not insane I'm not insane I'm not insane I'm not insane)

In the brainpan, the damaged brainpan
The dragon stirs tonight...
Shane and Mikhail have a happy ending
But the dragon stirs tonight...

I'll hold off writing until tomorrow
But the dragon stirs tonight...

Who-eeeeeeee... I might get some sleep tonight...
Who-eeeeeeee... My heads not screwed on tight...

(I'm not insane I'm not insane I'm not insane I'm not insane...)

The end.


Okay-- so Making Promises is ready for an editing pass and then submission, and I"m dedicated to short projects for the next few months. *whew* (Of course, some people have promised pitchforks and cattleprods if I don't produce Jeff & Collin's story in short order, but I've got a little tome called Quickening that I wanted to put out before that! We'll see if my resolution holds, though...I have to admit that when you mention on a thread that the sequel is done and a bunch of writers speak up to say "Huzzahh!" it does sort of go to your head! But, well... you know... QUICKENING! I mean, four pregnancies--all of that fodder for supernatural hijinx... how often do you really get to put THAT into play? just sayin'!!!)

Oh yeah-- Roxie? Needletart? RAMPANT is on its way! I finally got my author copies this week... SQQQQQQQUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I'll leave you with the following moment from Squish. Squish has the family hair, and she's heard Chicken and I refer to the rabid squirrel on our heads since she first had a single follicle to call her own. (You've seen the pictures. She was like, a year and a half old.)

Anyway, she got a hold of a brush the other day and said, "Look, mom! No squirrel! No hamster, either!" Chicken and I had to scrape ourselves off the floor.

Remind me to tell you a good Chicken story tomorrow... right now, I've finished Making Promises, I've finished the ass-kicking-nightmare-in-pink (it's blocking-- Squish will model for you as soon as it's no longer wet), and I'm off to knit... I have some WIP's to finish!

Dang, you are on a ROLL with finishing things! (And I'm glad I'm listening to the Mountain Goats loudly enough that the filk didn't settle in my brain.)

(".... not insane. I'm not insane . . . ")I think, if you want to keep the dragon asleep, you're gonna need to trank the bastard. You have a dragon with hyperactivity disorder. At least it isn't attention deficient. You ROCK, babe! Yeeeha! Waaaaaah - HOOOOO! AND the pink nightmare is finished? You must feel fan-freakin'-tastic! Go Amy! You rule.


(Squeee! My book's coming! My book's coming! I'm not insane. I'm not insane. In the brain pan, the damaged brain pan . . . .)

Not so lucky - I think the filk is going to be stuck in my brain all day! - Does that mean my brainpan will be damaged too? Thankfully no dragon here, so maybe not.

Is it good or bad that I've already got something else running around my head?

LOL, I love the filk! Congrats on finishing your next story. Enjoy your cuddle and knitting time with the kids before the dragon attacks again.
I just finished Rampant so I'm still riding that high and can't wait to read Quickening, but the next Promises book is just as exciting! Can't wait to read your works!
