DRAT! Premature posting! My number lock was turned off... Oh well... this is FRIDAY's blog. Check out today's though (below)-- it is a little necessary madness...
(and some news, but first for the part you really want...)
So yesterday I went to leave a link on my friend Sketchie's wall (Hey Sketchie, when ya comin' out, you contracted romance writer, you?) and I found THIS:
Apparently AT&T's auto correct for texting has more of a sense of humor than even those nutty Google guys (though I will share THAT too)
“I broke my penis and it exploded all over my pants.” (should have been pen, not penis)
“I think I left my glasses in your orifice.” (office)
“How is your day going?” “Awful. I have a case of the manboobs.” (Mondays)
Seriously... go look.
Can you SEE why instead of doing what I was supposed to last night I was going through their archives and crying because I was laughing so hard?
Though I ALSO had some amusement from the boys at Google. Pretty much you go to Google Maps, pick 'directions' and start in Japan. I think any other country is amusing, though I am particularly fond of the instructions for getting to the United States because it goes through Hawaii...--seriously, go look at the directions.
Okay, and now for some less ridiculous stuff:
I lost 5 pounds first week, but SUNDAY was bad (not sure why) then MONDAY I was watching my football game (so needed extra adult beverages) and TUESDAY hubby forbid me to set the alarm for 5am after being up until midnight... so this week has been a big ZERO. But I promise to get back to it. As soon as the eggnog is gone... *shifty *
See now HERE I am making good progress. I passed the halfway mark on the 'big edit' (which ideally would be followed by FEEDBACK and which I have now secured the fabulous Michael Di Gesu for an exchange—ideally one more... then another edit then a polish...erm... in 2 weeks. What?
As part of my ABNA prep though, I am engaged in an ABNA prep group on FB that is giving feedback and such and I've had a lot of interest in the book... not just 'sounds interesting' but 'I want to read that!' so I am excited about my book, even if I have doubts about it being quite 'done' for this contest.
That said, to MAKE IT, I am going under for the weekend... I might poke into facebook once or twice... but no blogs... I still have 100 pages to edit, including maybe 2000 words of writing for holes I've already identified, and so need to FOCUS.
Have a great weekend everyone!
