Cry Me a River

Lisa is crabby.

Evidence:
  • I didn't help with the blog post yesterday, so she felt the need to include an embarrassing photo of my butchered hair.
  • She sent me the last chapter of LIAR SOCIETY 2 last night after 1:30. The woman doesn't sleep.
  • She developed this insane schedule for us to complete LS2, forcing each of us to write two chapters a day for the last two weeks.
  • She gave me synopsi homework (it's like a rash, only more irritating) and almost cried when I returned it, dry as a bone and called on her to fix it.
  • Her Twitter feed makes me want to jump off a bridge.
Chin up, Lisa. Crank up the AC, go grab your Snuggie (pictured*), fix yourself a martini and watch an episode or two of the Bachelorette.



And remember. Jessica Simpson is almost always having a worse day than you. She is never going to live down that dress...

EDITORIAL NOTE:
Wow, even Laura's retaliatory blog posts are sort of nice. For some reason this makes me even more angry. 

Yours Bitchily, 
Lisa

*It turns out my stash of pictures sucks compared to Lisa's. This was the best I could do on such short notice and without access to a scanner.

Hey great post despite the pic which is not bad. Cheer up.

Amy said...

You two crack me up. :)

And I still don't get how you can pull this off so peacefully. If my sister and I shared a blog (let alone a book) there'd be a small crater where this part of Maine used to be. I applaud your restraint.

Tabitha Bird said...

Somehow I want to immediately grant you access to a scanner and then come back here in a few hours and see what you have done. :)

Bethany Elizabeth said...

Oh, I'm sorry you're so stressed - I hope things calm down a bit soon. A synopsis can put me in a pretty bad mood, too. :( Seriously, why do they suck so much? Especially since the synopsis has to be interesting. I think the world sometimes hates authors. Just sometimes. :D

Hee...aren't scanners a wonder?? Chin up, girl. Take a breather. You both are blessed to have someone to work with. ps: seriously, do you ask each other before posting a pic? Funny either way, but more so if you don't.

Jemi Fraser said...

You ladies are so busy! Make sure you take time to breathe a bit :)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

That's quite the revenge, Laura. Writing a dry synposis and expecting Lisa to liven it up. Ouch! That hurt just thinking about it. :)

Kerri C at CK Farm said...

Ha ha ha!

See you guys blog together and can't get away with anything. I posted a pic of my sis without her knowing....oh well at least she's not wrapped in a Snuggie lol!

Kelly Lyman said...

Too funny. Looking Jessica Simpson's dress totally made my day.

Candyland said...

Haha. Seriously, I want my own Lila sister.

Jill Wheeler said...

You guys are so cute. Even your "bad" pictures are adorable.

Kristi Helvig said...

That's the cutest 'bad' picture I've seen! :)

Creepy Query Girl said...

Good Luck with the writing girls! And if things start to go awry, yes, you probably are still doing better than Jessica simpson. There's always that:)

MBW aka Olleymae said...

wow your writing schedule sounds awesomely insane. you guys are hilarious ;)

Oh and congrats on Liar Society. I don't think I'd said that yet...

Janet Johnson said...

Nope, the picture isn't bad. Good luck with that schedule! Have I mentioned I HATE synopsi? I do.

Melissa said...

Wow, two chapters a day! No way I could pull that off right now.

That is a cute Snuggie picture, but I'd love to see what you would post if you did have a scanner;)

T. Anne said...

Aww! I think you look cute in your snuggie! I got my daughter a leopard print one for Christmas. Time to get me one of my own. And I can totally relate to having a crabby sister. It gets worse as they age.

Jen said...

Never a dull moment with you two!!! Much love!! An episode or two of the bachelorette and thinking about Jessica Simpson in that dress should make you feel like your life sucks considerably less for sure... if not another bottle of wine is in order... Pronto!

Marsha Sigman said...

I hate synopsi. I also believe that Snuggies are backwards robes.

Jeannie Lin said...

Don't you hate sisters who are always cute and photogenic in pictures? It's impossible to retaliate against them.

Sounds like she's a slave driver. That's a good trait to have in a writing partner. :)

Tess said...

Seriously? That's the worst picture you could find? Now, that's just depressing. Her worst is like my best *sigh*

PJ Hoover said...

The revisions will be awesome. And great. And all that.
plus the picture is not something to hide at all :)

JEM said...

Does it ruin your retaliation if I say that picture is cute?

Just saw the trailer for WriteOnCon, looks AWESOME.

Shannon Whitney Messenger said...

YES! I love watching this unfold. Pretty soon you'll have warring blogs, not just twitter accounts. ;)

Shelli (srjohannes) said...

nice blog background :) matches her hair.

Southpaw said...

Yes, Jeannie Lin I do. :)

JESSJORDAN said...

1) that writing schedule is effing insane.

2) J Simp's boobies look very weird in that dress. (Yep, I said boobies.)

3) Who, exactly, is in the Snuggie beside Lisa?

Nishant said...

Hey great post despite the pic which is not bad.
