For the record, I'm playing the role of Ewan McGregor over here, only instead of willing Laura to live, I'm begging her to work on our WIP. It's a sad state of affairs.
2. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer might have the most gorgeous book cover I've ever laid eyes on. It's a work of art. Must. Read. This. Book.
3. I like to say "Sweet Fancy Moses." A lot. I have no idea where it came from (a tweet perhaps?). But I can't stop saying it. I said it to the kids the other day and they thought it was hilarious.
4. Gwynnie tried to fool us into thinking she's self deprecating and funny.
Nice try. We're still not gonna sit through Country Strong.
5. Role reversal is a bitch. Yesterday Laura was all mopey and crabby and pessimistic. It. Was. Awful. Laura is supposed to be the glass-is-half-full-sister and I'm the you-better-freaking-fill-my-glass-NOW sister. It's just how we roll. Not surprisingly, I SUCK at cheering people up. I was all, "Screw it! It's fine! Want me to kick their ass for you?" "I'll take phrases that aren't even remotely comforting for $500, Alex."
So, yeah, the first week of 2011 was kind of a mixed bag. What did you guys learn this week? Can't wait to hear your life lessons in the comments. Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
