OMG-ness!!

Last week I talked about going to a conference vs. getting a new motorcycle.
Click here to see.
Thank you to everyone who cheered me quietly or loudly about my decision...
Then I got "Honey, take Wednesday off." "Why?" "Let's go off island..."
A few hours later, THIS happened:
 

OMG-ness!!! Right??
Not only did I get a new motorcycle, but my hubs bought me a Harley!
It's so ridiculously loud it made me squeal!
I LOVE this man!!
 
Plus, from everyone's suggestions on doing a "biker" theme for my A to Z challenge, I decided to mesh my idea with your idea which looks a little like this:
 How to be a wanna-be writer + biker stuff =
transforming a biker to a wanna-be writer
 
Whatcha think? You likey? You want wingy? Too bad! I ate them all! Muahahahaha...

 
 
Last of all, I probably won't see ya'll till March. I'm taking the LOVE month to LOVE on my book, (plus finish a beta read) so I can give it some over due attention.
I'll caress it, wine & dine it, and put my fingers ALL over it...by typing that is. Perv...

 
Questions for you:
1. What's something you got that made you scream to the heavens "YES"!
2. You likey my A to Z theme-y?
3. If you're doing the challenge, did you pick a theme yet?
4. Are you going to miss me while I'm gone?

Natalie Aguirre said...

Congrats on your motorcycle. Happy riding and writing!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Congrats on the Harley! If you're going to get a bike, get a real one.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Wow, nice bike! Enjoy!

Pat Hatt said...

Now that is an awesome surprise. Enjoy loving on the book and bike haha

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

Congrats

If I ever sell a book, one day I will upgrade my 97 Goldwing :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Great theme and what an awesome gift!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I will miss you. Super cool bike and theme. You rock!

cleemckenzie said...

Got leathers?

Great bike and I see lots of adventures in your future.

Enjoy your writing break. See you in March.

Lady Lilith said...

Nice. Enjoy your ride.

David P. King said...

Nice!!! That is a seriously sweet ride. Can I ... can I have a ride? :)

Rachel Schieffelbein said...

Sweet! You'll have fun on that! :)

J.L. Campbell said...

Enjoy your creativity.
I should get started on my A-Z posts.
Would love a bike, but I can't ride. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Awesome Harley! Congratulations!!

Enjoy your writing time! :)

Sarah Foster said...

That's awesome! Enjoy your time off. Hope you get lots and lots of writing done :)

S.K. Anthony said...

Yay for your Harley!!!!!! Go you!!!

Let's see:
1. What's something you got that made you scream to the heavens "YES"!
- Well, of course an O...., umm an "O"h my gosh, I love this present moment might have been my Mac. I got it for myself, but that's neither here nor there.

2. You likey my A to Z theme-y?
- Your Theme-y Rocks!!!

3. If you're doing the challenge, did you pick a theme yet?
-I'm not so no...o_O

4. Are you going to miss me while I'm gone?
-I'm going to cry like a baby. But I'll stalk you on FB so there's a possibility I might survive. :P

Muazzz to your blog until the month of love is over. Have fun writing and stuff ;)

Elephant's Child said...

Congrats on the Harley (though I am a Ducati fan).
Love the sound of your theme. And yes, you will be missed.
I hope that the month to come is productive - in between bursts of throbbing speed.

Carrie Butler said...

I LOVE it! :D

Al Diaz said...

WOW a Harley! Too bad they don't make it for Dragons. Do they come in tricycles? If so I can get some for the dwarves so your biking doesn't impair their stalking. They fancy hot chicks on wheels. Don't know why I am hearing Bad to the Bone in my head. ;) Good luck with that passionate typing.

Andrew Leon said...

nice bike

Lynda R Young said...

That's a shiny new bike. Congrats!! Now go make lotsa noise!

Carrie-Anne said...

I'd probably scream in delight if someone got me a Duesenberg or Rochet-Schneider, my favorite Brass Age cars.

I've got all A to Z posts for my main blog written and mostly edited, and only have six more to go for my secondary blog, my names blog. I won't be revealing either theme until March.

Nick Wilford said...

That's a mean machine. Good luck revving up for the challenge! (sorry...)

I'm foolish enough to have a write-each-post-on-the-day theme for the Challenge. Let's see how it goes.

Jemi Fraser said...

Nice bike! You're going to have so much fun with it!! :)

Christine Rains said...

Gorgeous bike! Love your idea for a theme too. I'll be doing it with the Untethered Realms group again this year. It's easier with a group of folks. (That's what she said!) I'll miss you lots! :)

Rena said...

OMG that's sp awesome! Like I can't even: awesome. So, looks like you're going to have a ton of fun.

Leandra Wallace said...

That is an awesome gift!!

TBM said...

What a super dooper surprise. Neat!

Happy writing and reading!

Michelle Wallace said...

That's an awesome bike! The real deal!
Enjoy!

Tammy Theriault said...

BIG CHESTED HUGS to everyone!!

Loni Townsend said...

Yay! Gorgeous motorcycle! I'm so happy for you. :)

dolorah said...

I just got a new washer. Wasn't able to afford the matching dryer yet, but it is something to look forward too.

Love the A-Z theme. I love motorcycles - would fall over if I ever tried to drive one myself though. I make a good riding companion. Yep, you'll be missed. I am not participating in A-Z, and will take April off.

Crystal Collier said...

I always miss you when you're away. =) Of course, it's going to be me who's away before too long.

Love the theme for the A to Z. Wish I had the stamina to come play along this year, but I'm thinking that with snippets of sleep around a newborn, it's just not going to happen.

victimtocharm.com said...

I decided on an A-Z theme but haven't announced it yet, and I won't for a while longer...I like your combination of themes though!!

taylorgraceauthor said...

That's pretty awesome! You look like you totally love that bike and it looks really good with you on it! Enjoy and write what it's like to ride it!

Stephanie Faris said...

How cool! I'm not nearly cool enough to drive a bike. I'm more a boring, indoorsy sort of writer!

Trisha F said...

Goooorgeous bike!! Congrats :D

And I'm thinking your A to Z theme is gonna be lots of fun!

The blogosphere will be a lot emptier while you're gone! ;) Have a great February!

Arlee Bird said...

Well looks like you're being Blitzed biker girl! Congratulations on the Harley. Better you than me cause I'm scared I'd fall off of a motorcycle.

Great theme for A to Z!

Carolyn Brown said...

Happy Blitz Day and congrats on the Harley.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

And just back to wish you a happy Blitz day!

Christine Rains said...

Just checking out your new bike again. And wishing you a Happy Blitz Day! :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Happy Blitz Day, Tammy!

Barbara In Caneyhead said...

Congrats on the bike Tammy! Nice.

1. Years ago when hubby had the wheels I wanted put on my 1979 Mustang Cobra.
2. Think you themey will be a good one for you.
3. I am doing the Challenge and my theme is Musical Memories. Not music persay, but the memories that spring from it.
4. I think you had better pop in for all this comment love. It will make writing easier.

Perhaps being Blitzed will have you screaming Heavens Yes! again.
Life & Faith in Caneyhead

DL Hammons said...

1. What's something you got that made you scream to the heavens "YES"! Read my Friday blog post for that answer.

2. You likey my A to Z theme-y? Absolutely! I call it inspired.

3. If you're doing the challenge, did you pick a theme yet? I'm doing the challenge, but I'm more of a wing-it type of guy.

4. Are you going to miss me while I'm gone? Of course...what a silly question.

Psssst....you're being BLITZED! Enjoy. :)

~Sia McKye~ said...

That is one very, very cool surprise. Harley's do thunder and roll. And now you will be very motivated for your A-Z.

My new car made me squeal a couple of years ago. I love the power it has--yah, I'm a bit of a lead foot.

A-z? I don't know if I have the oomph for it this year. We'll see.

Kelly Hashway said...

Congrats on the bike. What a sweet hubby. :) Good luck with the writing this month. Oh, and happy blitz day!

betty said...

Happy blitz! That is so cool with the bike. Enjoy it.Great theme for the a to z challenge too. Have fun with it.

Betty

Miranda Hardy said...

Wow Tammy! That's an awesome surprise!

Happy Blitz Day!

Nicki Elson said...

Me likey all of this! You look so hot on that bike.

Enjoy the rest of story-love month!

Robyn Campbell said...

COOL Harley! But...aren't we safer on a horse?? Great theme for A to Z too. I venture to say you'll be the only one. And with that tie into writing, it should be good. Ha. Sometimes when I'm writing, I feel like I'm falling off my horse. So I get that.

Happy Blitz Day. WAHOOOOOOOOO!!!

Stacy McKitrick said...

1. What's something you got that made you scream to the heavens "YES"! - My cover to Bite Me, I'm Yours. It was like the artist just GOT IT.

2. You likey my A to Z theme-y? - It sounds like fun, even though I'm not really into bikes. Maybe you'll convert me?

3. If you're doing the challenge, did you pick a theme yet? - Not doing the challenge. I don't need that kind of pressure in my life right now. Doesn't mean I don't visit those that are, though.

4. Are you going to miss me while I'm gone? - Yep, even though you won't know, since I tend to just lurk around here (bad me, I know).

Happy Blitz Day!! :)

Jennifer Kreft said...

Ooh, nice bike! Happy Blitz Day!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

You know what they say about the best-laid plans of mice and men... so much for taking this whole month off, my dear, because YOU are getting blitzed today! (And without drinking a single drop of booze, too.) Congratulations! Revel in the love, kiddo.

I always enjoy your posts sooooo much. Enjoy that new Harley... but please be safe. And enjoy your break from the blogosphere.

Kate Larkindale said...

1. What's something you got that made you scream to the heavens "YES"! Getting a new job the same week I was made redundant.

2. You likey my A to Z theme-y? I do. Sounds great!

3. If you're doing the challenge, did you pick a theme yet? Haven't decided if I'm doing it. But if I do, I'll probably do film reviews. I'm leaning toward not doing it this year though….

4. Are you going to miss me while I'm gone? Of course! Do you even need to ask?

Happy Blitz Day!

cleemckenzie said...

I'm back to wish you a happy blitz day and find out how the Harley's doing.

Julie Dao said...

Now THAT is a great present!!! Nice job, hubby! Happy Blitz Day :)

Beth Ellyn Summer said...

happy blitz!! and wow, I've never been on a motorcycle (too chicken) but it looks pretty!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

That is an AWESOME motorcycle! Happy riding and Happy Blitz Day!

Kelley said...

Happy Blitz Day!!

Gene'O Gordon said...

Awesome bike!

I like the theme. I'm doing the challenge for sure with a group of friends at a contributor blog I run, and officially, we don't have a theme. Thinking I'm doing it with my personal blog as well, and planning to take a long piece of fiction that I love and pull topics from that.

Getting a high-end desktop with 21-inch dual monitors made me scream "yes!" even though it was for work rather than home.

Gene'O Gordon said...

I also meant to say: Happy Blitz Day!

Sarah Ahiers said...

Oh man!! Your new bike is amazing and awesome! I'm a bit jealous.

Also, happy blitz day!

studyreadwrite said...

First of all: What a gorgeous bike!!

1.) What made me scream Hell Yea? Getting theatre tickets to see my two favourite actors perform live in London. (Plus, nice little trip to London town).

2.) I love your A-Z theme! I'm curious as to what you'll make of it.

3.) I am doing the challenge, but I haven't decided on a theme yet.

4.) Oh, Tammy! We've only just met! ;)

Happy Blitz Day!!

Chris Fries said...

Whoa! Very cool!

1. When my wife-to-be said "yes" to my proposal to become my wife-to-be.

2. Sure! It sounds intriguing! I'm curious to know the steps! And which is harder? Turning a biker into a writer or a writer into a biker?

3. Yep. And Yep. This year I'm going for a guitariffic theme! :)

4. Absolutely!!!

5. Happy Blitz Day!!!!

Stephen Kozeniewski said...

Bitchin' hog, Tammy!

GSMarlene said...

Love the bike! Happy Blitz Day.

Chrys Fey said...

Since I already commented on this post I'll just say....HAPPY BLITZ DAY!!!! :D

Timothy Brannan said...

1. What's something you got that made you scream to the heavens "YES"!

Geeky Answer: New books or new games!

2. You likey my A to Z theme-y?

Yeah! Bikes should be fun.

3. If you're doing the challenge, did you pick a theme yet?

I am and my theme this year is Vampires.

4. Are you going to miss me while I'm gone?

Well...I just found you, so I can spend your time away reading your back logs!

Mason Canyon said...

Great looking bike, congratulations and what a wonderful surprise. Happy Blitz Day!!!

Dawn Allen said...

Happy Blitz Day! Hope you enjoy it and the bike.

Michelle Wallace said...

Happy Blog Blitz Day Tam-Tam!
Enjoy the flood of comments coming your way!!

corinajoyc said...

When I was in high school I had a Honda 90. I loved it. I want old enough for a license so I rode it up and down our 2 block dead end street until I flipped over on it. I was fine but my mom never let me ride again. In fact, my dad sold it. I really wish I had that thing now. Not ready for a Harley but that little white bike I had would really make me smile.

Kim Van Sickler said...

You will have excellent adventures on your motorcycle and some of them might even make it into a story in one form or another. Good choice. I was extremely excited to research and order the best pair of extreme hiking boots for my bunion-infested feet for upcoming hiking trips. It is soooooo much nicer traipsing over hill and dale when those dastardly bony protrusions aren't constantly being chaffed. :-)

Yes, my group blog is participating in the A to Z Challenge, but no clue about themes yet. It would be nice if we could all piggyback off the same theme...

Tiana Smith said...

Yay for an awesome bike!

Chippyminton13 said...

Congratulations on the Harley.

I am taking part in A To Z and I have picked a theme but I'm not sharing it just yet

Happy Blitz Day :)

Kimber Leigh Wheaton said...

OMG I love your Harley!! Happy Blitz Day!

Connie Keller said...

Happy Blog Blitz Day! Congrats on the Harley!! Woot!

And I hope the loving on your book goes well.

My scream-worthy gift was a couple of years ago when my husband surprised me with a trip to Paris for our 25th wedding anniversary. (Actually, I didn't scream. I cried.) :)

Debbie D. said...

Nice Harley and your theme sounds good, too. ☺ I followed the Blog Blitz link over here, so HAPPY BLITZ DAY!! I love your blog - very cool. You have a new follower. Good luck with the A-Z!

Carrie-Anne said...

Happy Blitz Day!

Suzanne Sapsed said...

Hi Tammy, even though I'm not a bike enthusiast, there's something about a Harley :) Happy blitz day! x

Zan Marie said...

Congrats on the Bike! And Happy Blitz Day!

Kathryn McKendry said...

Wow, love the bike what a nice surprise! Honestly, I'd be scared to drive it but you go girl!!!

I love your theme sounds like lots of fun! I haven't quite finished deciding on my theme yet.

Happy Blitz Day!!

Oh and of course we'll miss you!

Heather Musk said...

Wow! A Harley is amazing, you lucky girl. I haven't picked a theme yet for A-Z, still mulling over a few ideas.

Happy blitz day!

M Pax said...

What an awesome surprise! Enjoy it and happy Blitz!

barbtaub.com said...

Love the bike and love the theme! But most of all I love that you're going to pound out that book.

I saw that you have three books in progress. Which one are you focussing on? I know it's hard when you have family and job and life getting in the way. But if you ever need a reader or reviewer, please let me know. Lots of people helped me when I was just getting started and I'd love to pass it on. Good luck and happy Blitz.

S.K. Anthony said...

Back to wish you a Happy Blitz Day ;)

Tammy!
That's amazing!
I love my Harley. Now we just need to get it fixed!

Congrats! Work hard on that next MS!

Challenge? Why, yes, I'll be doing the Challenge. No clue about what yet. :)

BAZINGA!

You've been blitzed!
Have a great day!

Heather

Katie Doyle said...

What a beautiful bike! The thing I'm most excited about is my new laptop for my birthday. I haven't gotten it yet, but I squealed when Hubs told me=) I think I will end up doing A to Z. It started the same year I started blogging and I joined in, so my blog wouldn't be the same without it. I'm not sure about a theme though... Mythology maybe?

Anyway, Happy Blitz Day!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Love, love, love this post!!! Awesome new wheels! Have to say that today, when I put off the annoying "boot of evil" aka "walking cast boot" and put on walked out of REI in brand-new hiking boots (aka foot and ankle doctor approved graduation) made me shout "yes!" - well, when I got to my car. I wasn't sure I wanted the REI customers to see how crazy I am. :)

Happy Blitz Day!!!

Jaimie Ramsey said...

Ooh, congratulations on your new bike! That is awesome!

My husband just told me yesterday that he bought us a Kindle for a joint Valentine's Day present. I squealed. :)

Happy Blitz Day!!

Hey Tammy. Been here before, but don't mind another look at your bike through the Blitz.

AJ Lauer said...

As a Wisconsin girl, I have to applaud your new Harley!! Congrats :)

I am doing A-Z (I'm a co-host), I think I have a theme but... eek.. not sure I've convinced myself to really do it as it will require writing every day - no pre-posting. eek.

Happy Blitz Day!

VR Barkowski said...

Congrats on the Harley, and I love your A to Z theme. I won't be participating this year, which is a kind of sad, but I have writing to do, and sacrifices must be made.

Happy Blitz Day!

Ok so yeah, I'm just a few days late! But, but I have a good excuse.... the 9th was my birthday and I was kidnapped and taken to Endor and forced to party my ass off and sing karaoke with a bunch of drunk Ewoks. Turns out they're big Taylor Swift fans and love shaking it to Shake It Off...who knew? I've had a hangover ever since.... what? You don't believe me? The hangover part was a bit over the top right? Damn, I new it. :P

<3 ya and damn, that's a nice hog you got! Lucky girl!!!!

Tammy Theriault said...

The Silver Fox said...

1. I can't tell you... but I wasn't alone when I got it...
2. Sure do!
3. I plan to do the challenge, but no theme yet.
4. Ohhhh, yes!

By the way, if you're interested, my latest post has information on how you can get a free download of a short comic book story I wrote. But you have to act before Monday, March 1st!

Kristin Smith said...

What a beautiful bike! Love it!

And yes, I love your A to Z theme and would love a wingy (with honey barbecue please). :)

Donna McDine said...

How cool is that! Enjoy the ride!
