2 Months and Counting

I can't believe it. Tomorrow, it'll be exactly two months until BAD TASTE IN BOYS is on the shelves. And I am not ready. I also have a jungle growing in my yard (which is very different from a jungle groin in my yard--and that's honestly what I typed the first time). I've got folded laundry occupying the entire floor of my living room. I have the most awesome zombie wallet in the world, which was one of my Mother's Day gifts, and I haven't put anything in it yet.

Doesn't the world know it's supposed to stop and let me celebrate?!?!

So over the next couple of days, I'll be visiting every wishing well and mall fountain in the area and wishing for a brief time stoppage. If any of you are as behind as I am, feel free to do the same. We can hang out while everyone else is frozen. I'll bring a sharpie so we can draw mustaches on the people we don't like.

Oh! Before I forget! Yesterday was a very exciting day in Carrieauctionland. You can bid on a 50 page critique and a signed copy of BTIB over at Help Write Now, or a signed BTIB over at All4Alabama. Both auctions benefit victims of the floods--please stop by and bid on something, even if it isn't mine.

Although I might draw a mustache on you...

KIDDING. HONESTLY KIDDING.

Oh! I'd love to see your jungle groin! :)

Congrats! Bated breath :)

Vivi said...

Holy Carrieauctionland!!!! I'm so there!!!!!

So excited about BTIB! And I so feel your pain about wanting time to stop! Though, at least the laundry on your living room floor is FOLDED! Mine is "loosely" folded (read: in a scary, heaping pile).

Carrie, I'm new to the site but just wanted to congratulate you on the pending release of Bad Taste In Boys. I will surely pick it up when it comes out. It sounds great. Oh, and a zombie wallet? Uh, jealous.

Tere Kirkland said...

Congratulations, Carrie! I could use a few hours of stopped time, but yeah, I'd probably so distracted by the novelty of frozen people, I'd be pranking more than writing.

Stopped-time well spent, I say! ;)

Love the wallet. Love the misspelled word. Love that your book is so near release. Love that I am back looking at people's blogs, especially yours. It's been a while. :D

Jessica said...

You officially have the most AWESOME accessories...shoes, wallets, etc. OMG. *green with envy*

Unlike Claire Dawn, I would NOT like to see your jungle groin. Sorry, I like you and all... but that would just make things weird between us.

Two months... so exciting! If you really discover a way to pause time, please share.
