Books and Boobs

I know I have been an irresponsible blogger once again. It’s just that my brain is JAM PACKED with stuff right now, and I am almost overwhelmed with thoughts. My future holds many possibilities, and it’s been hard to wrap my head around one single thought for too long. To those authors who filled out the Proust Questionnaires: I promise to start them up again next Thursday. None of my possibilities are bad, just so you know, but there are a lot of ducks to wrestle into a row, and I don’t exactly know which ducks I’m wrestling yet. Does anyone know what I’m talking about?

In book news: I sent off the manuscript to my editor and agent for novel #3 last week, and now I have the Julie pain of wondering and wondering when when when I will hear anything. I also proposed novel #5 last week, too, and am waiting to hear back about that. I am not a good waiter. At all. And I think I’d be a bad waiter of tables, as well. Cause I’m kind of clumsy. And my wrists are bad. The real question I am sure you’re all asking is: what happened to novel #4??? Well, I can’t tell you much about that one, but what I can tell you is that it is going to be AWESOME and HILARIOUS and DIFFERENT. More on that some day. But I can’t wait to tell you all!

In non-important news: I am seriously disturbed by plastic surgery. I always knew it was disturbing that people are so blasted with incorrect and improbable body images from the media that they feel that they have to have ELECTIVE SURGERY to change things. That is so jacked up, says the person who is needle phobic. But lately, I just feel really really really grossed by it, mostly thanks to Heidi Montag. I have never even seen this person on anything except TMZ and in magazines, so I don’t get her deal, but how could someone so young be such a plastic surgery freak? She’s on the cover of People, and inside, her tool of a husband (I can only assume he’s a tool for even allowing his wife to be so delusional that she not only spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on surgery, but she feels bad enough about herself to do so) said something about how no one should ever have to see someone they love in so much pain. You think? SO WHY DO IT?!?!?!?! I can’t stop thinking about it. Can you?

Personally, I am currently obsessed with the mystery of pre-hard-boiled eggs. I just saw those at the grocery store yesterday and it boggles my mind. Why would you need to buy a hard-boiled egg? Are there people who don't know how to hardboil an egg?

I am also obsessed with clearing enough reading room on my review list to read Get Well Soon, although I don't read much YA, b/c I loved Into the Wild Nerd Yonder SO MUCH! I just bought it for our library and can't wait to booktalk it to the teens.

I too have the jam packed brain---it hurts. HURTS!

Also, I'm more concerned that Heidi Montag has an album/CD out! There's no elective surgery for a tin ear...Is it possible that she's truly talented?

Tell Jennifer I know a woman who has to call her husband every time she boils an egg, so he can remind her how many minutes.

Heidi and Spencer need to go away! I only know them from all the promo they do for themselves and I wish it would all stop.

Right now I'm obsessed with the weather because they are predicting snow and ice. I would love to open the library late tomorrow!

Pre-hard boiled eggs: I can kind of understand, because I, too have to look at a cook book every time I boil eggs (which is never). But I am also frightened by them. How do we know they are safe to eat? Touchy.

Still thinking about Heidi. Spencer? Not so much. I can't stand his light facial hair.
