Here's the thing: I really need to get crackalackin' on the sequel to Extraordinary: Light vs. Dark
, so I'm only allowing myself fifteen minutes to write this post. Therefore, it will just be a series of tidbits which will, most likely, have typos. Are you ready? Buckle up. Let's go! First off, I want to thank Facebook for cropping the photo for my latest post about female empowerment. Here's what it looked like:
Um, yeah. Way to zero in on the goods. Oh, the humanity! Girl power, indeed.
Next topic: This morning my youngest offspring called me a terrible mom for stealing a marshmallow from his bowl of Lucky Charms. How'd I respond? By saying I'm awesome because I gave him a bowl of Lucky Charms instead of Bran Bricks. Complain again and crap cereal will be taken off the breakfast menu.
Moving on... To inspire me on the whole Extraordinary sequel, I bought a pair of glow-in-the-dark LED earrings. I debuted them at the high school's homecoming game, turning them on at half-time, and instantly felt like a moron. Nothing like a 15 year-old giving you the stink eye. I turned them off less than a minute later but did wear them the next night at the riverfront pops concert. It featured the music of Michael Jackson and the earrings blended right in since half of my friends wore silly light up fedoras. I have a photo of them but I'm not going to post it -- not because I 'm a good friend but because the photo came out blurry. Their egos were saved not by my sweet sensibilities but, rather, my ineptitude. By the way, in the dark I looked like an alien.
Take me to your leader...or the King of Pop.
But, you know, sometimes I've just gotta be me. In fact the message on the flask below, which I chanced upon while shopping, crystallizes my thoughts perfectly. Of course, I didn't buy the flask. I might have if I'd needed it. But my life is perfect, with beautiful children who not only fill my life with constant joy but also never complain at the breakfast table.
Anyway, my fifteen minutes are up. I'll end with with some business: Click here if you want to read an interview I gave at TheWriteChris. (Thanks, Chris!)
Click here to see an awesome review I got on Book End Babes.
(Thanks, Babes!) Okay, those links took me two extra minutes. Gotta go.
Ciao for now!
