Guest Post On Joylene Butler's Site, Birthday Greetings from Google

Image: Santiago Uceta, Skeleton Birthday Card


It's Monday. I love Mondays. I think.

The kids are at school and it's time to wallow in hours and hours of uninterrupted writing time. It should be awesome. Except somebody, not mentioning any names, stayed up way too late watching TV. Sigh.

You'd think I'd be old enough to know better, but apparently not. But I have an excuse. It was my birthday!

Now here's something interesting. When I went on Google yesterday, the logo, to my surprise, was a birthday theme. Not only that, it said "Happy Birthday, Tamara!" Could some other super-famous Tamara have the same birthday as me? Nope. Here's the explanation if you're curious and what it looked like:


As an extra present, Joylene Butler, suspense author of Matowak - Woman Who Cries (release date November 1) is promoting my collection of short stories, Heart Stopper and Other Stories, today. Click here to say hi.

Thank you Joylene!

How's your Monday going?

  2. One of the benefits of being a grown-up is getting to stay up past our bedtime. :)

    Madeline is right. You're an adult - go to bed whenever you want.

  6. Happy birthday! I don't believe I've ever seen Google doing birthday greetings for me, though I probably don't have my birthday listed in my profile.

  10. How awesome!!

    I never want to go to bed. I always plan to go to bed earlier when I wake up tired and groggy, but then by the end of the night-- I'm wide awake.

    Happy Birthday!!!

I will do everything in my power to visit commenter's blogs unless I've been abducted by aliens or my children get sick. (If my children get abducted by aliens, I will be very busy, of course, catching up on my sleep.)
