(Now with TWO exclamation points)
Mark your calendars homebloys. Next Monday starts the beginning of Sunshine's Second Annual Blog Prom. Last year I was voted most likely to spike the punch... and I DID. I know, it's like one of those "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" scenarios. You don't want to miss it. I might even bring real booze this time. Instead of just lemon extract, which is cheap and effective (168 proof!), but not very classy. So now the question is, who wants to be my date? I swear I won't puke in your car.
Here's the timeline:
Monday April 28 - Let's talk about our Prom theme songs.
Tuesday April 29 - Embarrassing Prom stories.
Wednesday April 30 - Favorite movie Prom scenes!
Thursday May 1 - Submitted Prom photos will be posted with links to participating bloggers.
Friday May 2 - PROM!
Also... The WWC now has a group on Flickr. Of course something that organized could never have come from my head. It was Stella's brilliant idea. The moment she suggested it I got ridiculously giddy, causing Hoop to think I had finally gone off the deep end. Instead of just suggesting I might, which is what I normally do. So please, join. Then we can be all clickish and buy jackets with our names on them!
I bought a few books this weekend. One of which was the newest and final book by Kurt Vonnegut, "Armageddon In Retrospect." If you've never read anything by him before, I would not suggest making this your first. But, if you're familiar with the author already, you need to add this one to your collection. One of the first sections of the book is the last speech he ever wrote. It was a speech he would not live to make. As his son so eloquently put, "Two weeks later he fell, hit his head, and irreversibly scrambled his precious egg." Now my paper friend is no more.
One of the best paragraphs in the book so far is this, "My advice to writers just starting out? Don't use semi-colons! They are transvestite hermaphrodites, representing exactly nothing. All they do is suggest you might have gone to college." Vonnegut was always wise like that. I finished another book over the weekend, "The Definitive Book Of Body Language." Everybody should invest in this little gem. Especially if you live with people, deal with people, or happen to be a person. All of which are perfectly fine. The only drawback is that Hoop keeps asking me if I'm analyzing him.
He's so paranoid...
