Weeks to me are like grass. I insult (or cut down) my grass once a week. But it keeps springing right back up. So too are my weeks. I keep ending them and nailing down the lid with drinking massive amounts of alcohol, but new ones just keep popping back up and sending me back to work. And this was a short week, since I took off Monday. And last Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Well, in fact, that long vacation made this short week feel like an eternity. How am I supposed to be expected to want to be at work?
Anyway, I thought I’d write a quick note about the kick ass phone call I got as soon as I arrived in Florida last week. A publisher called me and said they were publishing a short story of mine, and said furthermore that they were very, very, very, very interested in my second novel. Yes, he did say the word ‘very’ four distinct times. Which excited me quite a bit. So you are looking at the next published author! Well, maybe not the next one. Someone might get published in the next couple of days. But definitely one of the next ones. Pretty cool, huh? I know, it took long enough.
Now I think I’ll stop writing novels and switch to shorter subjects. Like limericks, poems and bumper sticker quips. Here’s one I’ve been thinking of for a bumper sticker. Tell me what you think:
I have a few more in mind too. But the politics one is my favorite because I have never understood what people think they’re going to achieve by putting a sticker on their bumper that says, “Obama in 08!” Uh, yeah. Okay, so now I know you’re an idiot because I know who you’re voting for. But what, did you think your sticker would sway my opinion on the matter? Or do you just like advertising your political views for the purpose of – of… Of… Um, I can’t even think of something to joke about let alone a serious reason. Seriously. Why do people do that? I just don’t get it.
Anyway, I think I’ve said enough about bumper stickers now. I’ll write something worthy of reading for you Monday. Oh, yeah, I know what I’ll write about. The Great Encounter of the Hambeast. Look forward to it!
