Tell The Truth Tuesday

1. I ate matzo ball soup for breakfast, lunch and dinner today.

2. I'm so stuffed up that I couldn't really even taste it. So then I ate some leftover cake.

3. I think I'm the only person in the history of the world to get sick in July during the middle of an epic heat wave.

4. I was thisclose to sending someone at work a message that "I'd stay on top of [Insert Male Coworker Here]." And then as I was typing the words I realized that it sounded kind of dirty.

5. I have very little patience for people who bring nothing to the table.

6. I have ZERO patience for people who act cliquey and aren't supportive of friends and/or fellow authors.

7. I think the Sudafed is making me reveal truths that will inevitably be edited by Laura in the wee hours of the morning before most of you are reading this.

8. I'm deeply grateful that since my own personal filter is a little on the thin side Laura filters most of my public musings.

9. Jack is the BEST liar and I'm pretty sure he gets it from me. Karma is a bitch.

10. I'm even more jealous than usual of the Third Roecker Sister's life. Check out her gorgeous pictures and turn green with me.

It's Tuesday, you know the drill. Confess your deepest, darkest truth in the comments. We won't judge. Pinky swear.

I'm about to eat a cookie (or two) for breakfast. I'm supposed to be on a spending freeze since our vacation, but I just placed a mega-order on Amazon anyway. I got caught up on Weeds last night instead of listening to the Prez speak about the debt ceiling.

And Stacey's photos are stunning! Holy cow, they make me want to hop on a flight to Europe.

Jemi Fraser said...

Those photos are incredible - she has a great eye!

I hear you on the cliques - I've seen more of that lately. Makes me sad.

Hope you're feeling better soon.

storyqueen said...

I am jealous of third roecker's life, too!

But alas...

I have visited my executive brown chair a lot this month. But I don't think anyone wants to see those pictures.

Just a ratty old brown chair.

I don't even know what matzo ball soup is, but if I did, I don't think I could eat it for every meal (even with the cake). And I'm with Loretta - we watched Eureka on SyFy instead of the presidential speech.

Erica said...

I just ate a leftover bag of Chipotle tortilla chips for breakfas (and thought of you both at Chipotle last night as I longed for -- but did not order -- a margarita.)

I'm going to wash it down with a cookie and some coffee.

I will do this while reading blogs devoted to Kate Middleton's wardrobe.

I am insanely jealous of the Third Roecker Sister's playroom.

Erica said...

I should add that I'm jealous of the Europe pictures too, of course. It's just that I will not be going to Europe any time soon, and I keep stepping on Polly Pockets and Little People, so I am spending A LOT of time thinking about her beautiful playroom.

Tere Kirkland said...

Truth? I reeeaaallly want to go to Amsterdam right now.

The real, awful, shameful truth? I feel like I need to be a better person. I've had such bad luck house hunting, there must be a black spot on my karma that needs to be cleansed. Or something. Anyone need a kidney?

Lydia Sharp said...

Truth: I laughed really hard at this. Especially the first two.

Truth: I stayed up until 1am last night working on a fake book cover for my WIP instead of the important stuff, like, yanno, writing it...

Truth: The fake book cover has way to much bare lady ass showing to ever be used for real. Especially since this is YA. But it's actually the most perfect stock image I've found yet for this novel.

Guess that makes me one of those "bad YA writers who wants to prey on your innocent children with inappropriate book covers"...

*holds up fists* Bring it.

I have ZERO patience for people who act cliquey and aren't supportive of friends and/or fellow authors. <<< THIS, x1,000. Seriously, the cliquishness is getting out of control lately.

My truth today: My mom is visiting from Cali and I'm counting down the days until she goes home. That's mean. But true.

I'm finding that even though I have a thick skin, not being bothered by bad reviews is REALLY a struggle.

Y'day was my birthday and I'm totally in denial that I am "in" my 30's now.

Marsha Sigman said...

1) I have not noticed any cliquishness. I wish I had a clique to be cliquey with. No, not really.

2) What the hell is matzo ball soup? Nevermind, I hate soup.

3) I have zero patience with co-workers who pretend to be friends then get mad at you over nothing and refuse to speak to you. Are we in junior high?

4) I want to be with Stacey right now, really really bad.

Krispy said...

I'm jealous of anyone vacaying in Europe. Also, her pictures are very nice.

My truth: I spent all of yesterday at work wishing it was the end of the day and vowing Tuesday, I'd get really on task. It's Tuesday. I think it's going to be a repeat of Monday. :P

Hayley Lovell said...

Oh Europe, how can you not be envious? I haven't noticed any cliques but then again I haven't been the most prominent person on the blogshpere. As for clique-i-ness in general I hate it too.

Here are my truths:

My boss thinks I am her personal doormat, and all I want to do is quit but I need the money for school so I keep putting on a fake smile and going to work. It makes me want to scream.

I'm freaking out about college.

I'm suffering from writers block and feel totally inadequate.

I'm knee deep in The Liar Society and LOVE it, I cannot wait to add it to my bookshelf.

Jennifer Foushee said...

Lisa - I hope you're feeling better. The good news is that you're still hilarious, stuffy or not. ;)

Your sis's pics make me desperately want to go back to Amsterdam (as it happens, the setting of my WIP). That city is so beautiful!

Bethany Elizabeth said...

Deepest, darkest secrets? Well, let's just say it has to do with a very serious, beyond-help addiction... to chocolate. Alas!

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
