Introducing Laura and Lisa Write

My solo blog internship will officially begin tomorrow. Although if I know my big sister, she won't stay away for long. In fact, she's been sending me a few last minute texts* just to be sure I don't break the blog...

Lisa: u ready?
Laura: um...r u ready? u know ur having a baby, right?
Lisa: yeah, yeah, just dont forget about bookinistas and schedule posts for 6 am...and facebook, and twitter, and...
Laura: what are the bookinistas again?
Lisa: laura!
Laura: kidding, kidding. i. can. do. this. go 2 sleep, u know ur going to be up every 3 hours until x-mas, right?
Lisa: jack slept through night at a month. best. baby. ever.
Laura: um, r u forgetting mia? she still doesn't sleep through the night.
Lisa: i hate u.
Laura: take ur time. i'll be fine. i have all sorts of fun posts planned. oh...and do you think theres a way to change our blog name to laura and lisa write?
Lisa: thats it. changing password. we can go dark for a few wks
Laura: take a joke hormonster
Lisa: not. funny.
Laura: don't try anything funny or i'll report you to ken
Lisa: you are evil. the power has gone to your head.
Laura: muwhahahaha.

So...you guys are stuck with moi--well, at least for a little while. Lisa will be clawing her way back to her MacBook in no time at all. Maybe I'll have to transcribe a few of her new mama truths for Tuesday.

In the meantime, welcome to Laura and Lisa Write, bitches. The blog where second sisters rule and the number of followers drops by the hour.

You hear that sound? It's Lisa sobbing from her delivery room.

This is going to be fun.

*We are now forced to communicate primarily through text because Skype is banned and our husbands want to divorce us after having to listen to our phone conversations all night.

Laura, baby! For once I actually know who I'm talking to when I comment on your blog, which is rather a novelty for me.

And now I'm wondering if I can instigate any trouble, since, y'know, I kinda have your ear exclusively at the moment. But then I guess you find your own trouble pretty effectively, and anyhow, Lisa'll be reading the comments on her iPhone between contractions, and I wouldn't want to upset her. Maybe I won't instigate, then.

Boy, *that* was a short-lived revolution, wasn't it? It wasn't televised, in case you were wondering.

Oh, and best wishes to big sis with the delivery. Congratulations in advance, Lisa! (And to you, Laura, on the new nephew/niece.)

I'm out. Peace.

Matthew Rush said...

Wait. There are two of you? I thought you were Siamese twins. No?

Thank god you'll keep posting at 6AM. That way I can keep beating Simon to the punch as usual.

What? He commented already? Crap. He's probably been up all night, crying into his Vodka as he kills off another character. Sneaky bast -

Renae said...

Hey Laura,
This was great. I can only imagine those phone conversations. and I don't think you're going to break the blog!

salarsenッ said...

Laura, you RAWK! Really, and your big sis knows that. Please tell me she's not taking her Droid or Blackberry into the birthing room???

Hah. LOL.

Katie said...

LOVE this post! HA! And I especially love that you actually changed the header. *giggles*

Frankie Diane Mallis said...

Hahaha! Send hugs and love from me to Lisa!! :-)

Christine Fonseca said...

WOO HOO Laura!!! Good luck with everything - and give Lisa hugs from me. So happy for her.

Kim Harrington said...

You two kill me!

Liza said...

When I scrolled up top and read the header I howled. So funny. Congrats on the new family member to be.

Corey Schwartz said...

Ha, ha, ha, ha!

K. M. Walton said...

Even though I'm the oldest of four sisters I have a personal philosophy that little sisters RULE. So, on that note, go on and RULE. You know you can. Own it.

Just don't tell Lisa.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

LOL. Babies # 2 and 3 didn't sleep through the night until they were 13 months for me. Hopefully, Lisa, your new little joy will be more like Jack. And if not. Heck, think of all the ideas that will come to you in your half dazed state of delirium.

And don't worry, Laura. No one is going to abandon you. We love you too much.

storyqueen said...

Power to the younger sisters!!!

(Being one myself, I have permission to shout such things.)

So....the baby comes?

Melissa Sarno said...

Lol. You guys completely crack me up. I think I could read transcripts of your texts and never get tired (new book idea?) Can't wait to see Laura take over the blog.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Haha! That's awesome. Poor Lisa. Talk about a total WTF Wednesday for her. But I wish her the very best! Babies are so sweet and cute and good smelling, and we all know Lisa's baby is going to sleep through the night first thing. *shifty eyes*

Congrats on your hijack, Laura! And big congrats to Lisa on 3rd-time's-a-charm-motherhood!

Carolyn V. said...

LOL! Laura, you'll do awesome! I can't wait to see what you come up with. =D

Sara B. Larson said...

Ha ha, you guys just crack me up! (Like usual) Lisa - good luck and congrats in advance on your new little one! And Laura, enjoy your reign of power for as long as it can last... :D

Laura Marcella said...

Hormonster, LOL! I'll have to remember that if my sister has another baby. Probably not very nice, but it's funny!

Congrats and good luck to Lisa! Oh, and congrats and good luck to Laura, too!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Lisa--Congratulations on the upcoming baby...

Laura--Have fun Home Along on the Blog...Be good. (wink)

Kelly H-Y said...

You two are hilarious!

Creepy Query Girl said...

awe sisters! lol. Great post Laura- I hope that baby comes out in a quick, painless, healthy delivery. And sleeps through the night by one month:)

Krispy said...

Your text conversation is so funny. Hormonster is a good one. I think that needs to be put to more use.

Congrats and good luck, Lisa!

Have fun (but not too much fun?) with complete blog control, Laura!

Tere Kirkland said...

Sweet, second sisters are finally getting their comeuppance! Love the changes you've made to the place, Laura. ;)

Second sisters, unite!

Lisa, good luck!

Marsha Sigman said...

Laura, you go girl!

The Coup has begun...repeat...the coup has begun.
Take cover.

Sarah said...

Haha! Well played, Laura. Well played.

Christina Lee said...

Wait, does this mean Lisa had her baby?!?!?!!? Details, please ;--)
woo hoo

paulgreci said...

Good luck, Laura!!
And, good luck, Lisa w/the new little one!!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

OMG - I love you guys!

Lisa, good luck to you and baby!

Laura, bring it on, girlfriend!! :-)

lotusgirl said...

Good luck getting this back, Lisa.

Nicole Zoltack said...

Lisa, good luck with your labor and delivery! (and getting the blog back)

You two are hilarious. Loved the text conversation. I think it would be awesome to write a novel with my one sister. Although we might end up killing each other. Might be worth a shot though. :)

Dianne K. Salerni said...

All the best to Lisa and the baby! (Post pix!)

Laura, why do I have that Muse song "Uprising" playing in my mind?

Joanne Fritz said...

And all this time I thought you were one person with two personalities... hee hee.

Love this line: "...where second sisters rule and the number of followers drops by the hour." I seriously doubt that. You're hilarious, Laura.

Good luck to Lisa and hope she can sleep sooner rather than later.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Good luck Lisa. And have Laura. I don't thin you'll lose anyone.

Jemi Fraser said...

"hormonster" totally cracked me up!! You guys have the most fun in your electronic conversations!!

Dominique said...

Hi Laura. :)
Lisa, good luck! You can do it. :)

Erica M. Chapman said...

LOL- Awesome Laura! Good luck Lisa! Thinking about you and aunt Laura and the new babay!

I love this blog. That is all ;o)

Little Ms J said...

Laura, I love your style. You've got that whole younger sister spice that I've always revered (and squashed) in my own sister.

Elana Johnson said...

I love this post!! You always (ALWAYS) make me laugh, and that's why I love coming here.

Good luck tomorrow Lisa! Laura -- second sisters rule the world! I'm one too, and we can take our sisters down...one blog post at a time. Mwa ha ha!

Claire Dawn said...

Poor Lisa!

Shelli (srjohannes) said...
