Friday, Friday, gettin' down on...oh, God, forget I sang that. Anyway, a couple of days ago, I received a most excellent surprise from the fabulous Latoya Smith: four hot off the press copies of my book! They are gorgeous. So, so gorgeous. I was on my way out, so I grabbed one and forced all the parents at my youngest kid's preschool to observe its beauty. Probably they were afraid, but I was excited:-)
In any case, I gave a copy to the graphic artist who did the Dynasty tattoos for me, and I'm hanging onto a couple until my actual box of author copies arrives, but I thought it would be fun to give one away. Because, hey, Friday, free stuff, it's all good. I'm not going to get fancy, just do a drawing, so if you'd like to be entered let me know in the comments. Contest open until midnight tonight (PST), and I'll announce the winner tomorrow.
And for discussion, since I started with that awful earworm of a song (the Epic Mullet Guy version is way better), what other sings make you crazy in a "this sucks but it won't leave me alooooone" kind of way? A recent one for me was Nickelback's "This Afternoon" (you click that link at your own risk...some of the band is cute, but the video quickly becomes obnoxious bimbo overload). Yes, I know there are a lot of Nickelback fans out there. I'm not one of them, belonging to the prestigious Every Time a Nickelback Song is Played, God Kills a Llama group on facebook. And yet, despite my lunging to change the channel every time I heard the opening chords of that song, there it would stick. Sometimes for days. *shudder* Share you pain, win free stuff. It's all good!
Happy Friday, everyone!
