My Karma is happy. I got second in the Fire and Ice Contest! WOOOOHOOOO!!
I had such a great day--meeting with my agent, talking to people--that I didn't want to win first. It seemed like it was asking too much of 'good luck.' It's like after I finaled in this contest and was signed by the agent on my birthday, people told me I needed to buy a lottery ticket. But that felt greedy. I want to keep the balance, so second is the way to go.
Met some really nice people. Having a great time. And drank a lot of champagne at the reception.
