Spring Break Randoms
Hey, friends and random spammers! I've missed you. What have you been up to? It's Spring Break in my world and that means no work and no college. (And also no makeup. No hair washing. No alarm setting. No cleaning. No homeworking. No professional dressing. No vegetable eating. No bedtiming.)
The sequel to Devil Wears Prada had a cover reveal. You know it's a big deal when your cover debut is on Entertainment Weekly. Does the arrival of Revenge Wears Prada and the eventual new Bridgette Jones novel mean (an evolved ) chick lit is returning? I hope so! Maybe if Anna Wintour gave her snobby, dismissive thumbs up…
I have been following the Pope retire/rehire situation with much interest. I love the ancient traditions of it all. Like the black and white smoke. Sometimes when I cook, I have black and white smoke. In an age where we can have an update to millions via twitter in a single second, the Catholics bring out the smoke signals, and I think that is incredibly cool. But I didn't understand people being so shocked by a pope quitting. The man is 85. I was ready for a Boca senior timeshare at 24.
I don't know about you, but I never really got over the loss of the TV show Veronica Mars. A Charmed Life series was born out of my love for Veronica Mars, Nancy Drew, my concern over a popular YA series about some rich girls, and the fact that I was raised around 3 boys who worshiped at the altar of Hulk Hogan and Junk Yard Dog. And by worship, I mean I was their crash test dummy. (The good news is, I've had 30 years to build a really good lawsuit for head injuries and emotional trauma by way of clotheslines and pile drivers.)
Today it's sunny and 70 degrees in Arkansas. I'm picking up my mom and heading to a quaint nearby town where my latest series-in-progress is set, where you can get some darn good BBQ, and you see signs like the one above. Have a great weekend and do something fun. Buy some meteorites.
