I received a rough sketch of the cover! It’s amazing and I love it so much. It’s in three parts with a picture of the house on the top, the title in the center and then an abstract of one of the book characters at the bottom. It’s very unique. As soon as it’s finished I will show it to you. So I guess maybe it wasn’t bad Karma after all. When brides-to-be are in the planning
stages of their weddings and freaking out they are sometimes referred to as “Bridezilla’s” I think I’m turning into a “Bookzilla!”
When you are typing a Twitter message or a Tweet
you are only allowed to use 140 characters and then you receive a message like, “blah, blah, blah, you went over the limit, you will need to be more creative.”
You know what Twitter, you can kiss my ass because I just used up my last drop of creative juices. When someone like me, who likes to talk, is confined to only
140 characters it’s like a death sentence. And when you try to abbreviate and autocorrect kicks it gets even more painful.
Yesterday I was typing a Tweet to my friend Jane and the message was supposed to say: I will try to link to your blog in the morning. Auto correct changed it to: I will try to link to your bulge in the morning! Thankfully I caught it before I sent it. How would Jane have reacted to me wanting to link to her bulge?! It sounds like something paranormal or like what aliens would do.
Speaking of Speaking
Regular talking sometimes requires too much
thought too. My husband plays guitar and sings, sometimes with a band and sometimes alone. His gigs usually consist of local venues, small to medium bars in the local area. Last night he was playing alone at a bar called Whiskey River. One of the bar customers watched as I helped my husband carry in some of his equipment. He came over and asked the name of the band. I told him that there was no band, I said, “My husband plays with himself.” The man had a strange look on his face, as if he were thinking, “no wonder there’s no band, this guy is a weirdo!” I met a
strange lady at the bar too and she put a visual in my head that I didn’t appreciate. She was complaining to the bartender that it was too cold in the bar, she said, “my nipples are so hard right now that I could scratch your back with them!” Eeewwww, gross.
The Word of the Day
In the USA we often use the word “biggie.” You might say that’s no biggie, if something isn’t a big deal and you may go to Wendy’s and order a “Biggie Fries.” In the UK children refer to their poo as “biggie.” And now you know why Wendy’s restaurants have not caught on the UK.
Have a great day passengers!
