Tell The Truth Tuesday

1. I have been staring at this screen for 30 minutes trying to think of an appropriate truth.

2. I have lots of truths this week, but very few are internet appropriate.

3. There's a decent chance I'll be sneaking off to Vegas to steal Little Ms. J's baby girl. I mean, those cheeks KILL ME.

3. I accidentally typed 3 twice. I'll take it as a sign that we're meant to have two #3 truths.

4. I may or may not be leaving all three of my children with the youngest sister Roecker and her two kids for two hours today. If she survives, I'll owe her some MAJOR babysitting.

5. Went to Leah Clifford's signing on Saturday and was happy to see only 3 remaining copies of Liar Society on the shelf (there were a few million more than 3 after our signing). But then Scott Tracey pointed up to a couple hundred stacks of LS on the top book shelf. Niiiice.

6. I can't watch this commercial without bawling like a baby.

7. I've been having some major issues with productivity lately. My house looks like a bomb exploded, I'm a deadbeat writing partner and I panicked when the doctor asked Lydia what she likes to eat for dinner because I was afraid she'd answer that her mommy doesn't make dinner. I swear I make something with the microwave.

8. I REALLY want to eat something chocolate right now.

9. I also REALLY want to look skinny at this wedding in two weeks.

10. The chocolate wins every time.

11. In related news, I'm in the market for some new Spanx and a magic dress that will make me look 10 pounds skinnier. Leave your suggestions in the comments.

1) I've had two Mondays this week... and it's only Tuesday...

2) I'm probably going to query my new ms before I should... if for no other reason that I'd rather get a rejection than be getting nothing...

3) I've officially reached 'that stage' when part of me is just a tiny bit savagely jealous whenever I hear about someone else 'making' it...

3) Really, if I hear about another 18 year old who got a 20 book deal, I might just drop dead from frustration... I don't care what sort of amazing writer you are, you aren't going to be 'that' good at 18... you just haven't lived long enough...

4) I may also drop dead if I here one more story about a celebrity under the age of ancient getting a book deal... whatever sordid life you've led, we've already watched it play out on national tv... we don't need to read about it too...

5) I'm a little confused about the whole Royal Wedding/Osama thing.... People have made fun of me for getting into/celebrating Prince William's marriage... and then I've been called a prude for NOT jumping up and down screaming for joy because Osama finally got his brains blown out... maybe I'm bent... but I think love is a good thing... and killing (even justified) is not really something you're supposed to cheer about...

Ooh, owing MAJOR babysitting...that's okay. Just hand her some chocolate. should cover the debt nicely. :)

Major true for this Tuesday: after the weekend I had, I really did send the kids off to school, yesterday, and go back to bed. I did it. So proud of myself, although I'm still so tired.

After having the worst day ever yesterday, I ate approx. half a pie.

Actresses wear double spanx on Oscar night. Two layers. I say scarf the chocolate and invest in a couple of full length body sculptors.

Matthew MacNish said...

I have no idea what a spanx is, but when I want to look skinny I smoke crack for a few days, stay up all night, and don't eat. It's great for the complexion.

LTM said...

lol! Aww... I've never seen that Pampers commercial. Too cute. And Ms. J's baby--even cuter!

Having productivity problems, too. Maybe it's the weather. Spring fever is my go-to... every time~ :o) <3

Nicole Zoltack said...

OMG, that commercial is precious! I could watch it over and over again!

And wear a dress that has a band beneath your chest. It'll highlight the slimmest part of you and will make you look skinnier.

Elise said...

A wrap around dress will do fabulous things! Chocolate is great! :)

1) I am trying to lose 10 pounds as well. It's winter fluff. It helps to buy a bathing suit too small and then stare at it every time you feel hungry. Water is its own food group.

2) I still shop in the juniors section for casual clothes. I'm not crazy enough to wear ruffled mini skirts or bedazzled daisy dukes but I like t-shirts and capris that don't make me look like my grandma.

Tracey Neithercott said...

You're a writer. Eating chocolate is like part of the job requirement. I hear baby manuscripts die when deprived of chocolate.

That's even sadder than the commercial.

Jemi Fraser said...

I hadn't seen that commercial yet (we have different ones in Canada a lot of the time) - I turned into a puddle!!! Truth: I'm a complete and total sap! :)

Jill Hathaway said...

Oh, gawd, #7 resonates with me. And how.

Sarah P. said...

So my truth is that instead of working on revising my YA novel tonight, I wrote a blog post and am blog surfing instead. You can't productive all the time, right? :/

Wednesday truths

1. I am reading your blog instead of writing the 15 page paper that is due tomorrow. I consider this time well spent.

2. I watched that commercial and seriously cried. I want to show it to my mom, but she would be a complete basketcase since my sister just recently had a baby.

3. I needed to make another point because I don't want to write my paper.

4. If you find that magic dress you need to let me know where you found it.

google search "cupped shaping slip" lemme tell you- that contraption may feel like being digested by a snake, but damn if you don't look 10 pounds lighter in it.

Little Ms J said...

Get on a plane and come see my little angel! She is perfect and smells good and has these big eyes and watches your face while you talk to her and did I mention that she's perfect? Trust me, you'll want to steal her, but then I'll have you spend the night with me. It will TOTALLY cure you. She is doing this thing called cluster feeding. It is a cluster alright.
