Holy Crap!!!!

Dudes, you're SO not going to believe this. Remember the International Songwriting Competition that Michael and his partner were finalists for? And remember how the same song won first place in a national competition just a short time after that?

Guess what?

They found out today that their song, "I'm Not Your Friend", has won the GRAND FROCKIN' PRIZE in the International Songwriting Competition!!! That's not "Best Rock Song" or "First Place", that's GRAND PRIZE for the WHOLE competition (with 15,000 entrants this year).

This is a HUGE deal. This competition is judged by people like Tom Waits and Nelly Furtado and Ray Davies and Jerry Lee Lewis fer cryin' out loud, as well as music industry professionals whose names I don't recognize. The prize package is AMAZING (sorry, Mom, rock musicians just make more money than poets, I guess) and it's all making me just a little bit giddy (even though Michael's likely to spend the prize money on something OTHER than jewelery for his loving wife). There will be a demo CD with all of the winning songs distributed to a vast array of music professionals, and this all could be the start of something very exciting for my honey.

Swoon!

Wow, that is awesome!! Pass my kudos on to Michael. And, tell him his loving wife deserves at least a little trinket. :-)

That is so rocking, in so many ways. How satisfying to be told how talented you are by people who are already huge! Congrats to your husband, all the way.
