Yeah, we're pretty familiar with these types of days and the end result is usually a phone conversation between Laura and I that goes a little something like this:
Lisa: Waiting sucks.
Lisa: I just want to do something drastic.
Lisa: You know, like delete the blog. Just out of spite for publishing in general.
Lisa: And then maybe set fire to my laptop and throw it through the nearest window.
Lisa: Have you done any research about the whole North Korea plan? I really think that if you get stuck in one of their prisons for a year or two, it could really help our chances. And then we can tell those snooty Ling sisters to suck it.
Laura: Oh yeah.
Lisa: Wait, are you even listening to me?
Lisa: I hate you.
And then I'll see a post like this from JessJordan crowning us Word Nerds, and I remember exactly why we spend so much time blogging. I remember that there are people (who aren't related to us) who actually read our blog on a daily basis. I remember that you guys believe in us.
And that totally makes our day. So, thank you!
And now we must pass along the Word Nerd crown to a fellow nerd. It was a really tough decision because we have lots of lovely and deserving nerds in our lives (thank God), but in the end it had to be Sarah With a Chance. With Twitter updates like "There's something about watching Jason Bateman on a Sunday night that makes the coming week feel exponentially less depressing," and blog posts written by her WIP this was kind of a no brainer. Go read her blog and follow her today. You'll thank us for it.
Word Nerds UNITE!
