I had a small mental breakdown when I saw Maili's recent column over at Romancing The Blog.
The witch stole my idea!
OK, so it was technically her idea first. And it's my own damn fault for not e-mailing her, because when I saw the title of her post before it went live, I had a feeling that was what her focus was going to be on.
I could have probably kept my original column on child characters in romance novels, since my ranty focus tended to be on toddler characters and the lisp - but thought it would be in poor taste to have two very similar columns so close together. So I spent my weekend thinking up a new idea - and came up with one. Just got done writing it and it's set to go live on June 10.
And I think it's fairly original - so I'm not fretting about the other posters this week.
My weekend was basically shot to hell thanks to Traffic School. Yours truly made the mistake of not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign a few months back - and the young, cute police officer had the nerve to give me a ticket! With visions of high car insurance costs for the next 3 years, I took the option of Traffic School.
Never again. Never, ever, ever again. I would rather have 3 root canals and my finger nails pulled out simultaneously than go through that 8 hours of hell again. Most...Boring...Day...Ever.
But I made up for it on Sunday. The Boyfriend and I went and saw Revenge Of The Sith on IMAX. Very, very cool - and here's a shock, we both really liked this movie. Of course going in with absolutely no expectations helped considerably. Expect nothing = walking away pleasantly surprised.
