Good news...Bad news...

Good News: Laura and I played tennis tonight.
Bad News: We got our asses kicked. We're like the Bad News Bears of tennis. It's laughable.

Good News: Fun BBQ on Saturday at Laura's house!
Bad News: The boys tricked us into it so they could play golf and ditch us with the kids. Bastards.

Good News: We read the best book ever and can't wait to tell all of our friends about it...
Bad News: It's not published and about to go on submission in September. So you guys are going to have to wait a long, long time.

Good News: I've started Tweeting again.
Bad News: It's because I'm desperate for new and exciting ways to procrastinate. Pathetic.

Good News: I have hours and hours of fabulous TV on my TiVo including the NYC Prep Finale and tonight's Top Chef Masters. Long live Bravo.
Bad News: Laura won't let me watch it. That bitch.

Good News: I managed to post a blog for today.
Bad News: It sort of sucks.

Promise to be more fun tomorrow...er...eventually. XOXOX

I just have to know... Do you have tennis skirts? I don't play tennis and I have four outfits. They are adorable. I just show up on the court and stand around. Sometimes I flex my calves so everyone can see how toned my legs are and every now and then I stick a tennis ball in my little spanky shorty thingies, just in case I want to go nuts and hit it over. If it goes over. My mother-in-law was a state tennis champ. I think she finds me to be a disappointment. And I'm going to the US Open in NYC in December. She hates that too. Last year it was, "Roger who?" Then he took his shirt off and it was all good.

LOL! Fabulous post! Blogging is my procrastination tool - that and watching videos on youtube. Hee

Oooh, was it team Lila vs. TOG (the other guys)?

p.s. didn't the Bad News Bears win in the end? Or was it one of those "second-place-but-it-feels-like-winning" movies?

I've got bad tennis playing down to an art, especially considering I had a private coach for two frigging years. My advice? Own it.

I can't wait to hear about this book you guys loved. And omg, NYC Prep did not die as soon as I quit watching? Why do I always expect that to happen?
