It's the first day back from vacation; I'm running late, and I have no ideas. Fair warning that you should expect randomness with a capital NDO today.
Ever have one of those friends that always messes up the lyrics to songs in ways so ridiculous that you suspect that are in fact joking? I had one in college. I used to teach water aerobics, which is an exercise in self-confidence. (Seriously. I'd like to see YOU standing on the edge of a pool in your bathing suit with a bunch of people staring at you while you do froggie jumps in slo-mo.) Anyway, I used to make my own tapes to use during class, because the tapes they provided were horrible. My cool down tape had Careless Whisper by Wham! on it, because I am just that kewl. One day, I heard her singing, "Guilty feelings, hot diddle diddle."
Yeah, instead of "Guilty feet have got no rhythm." It still cracks me up. Hot diddle diddle to you too!
This is the same friend who I convinced that the line to the Toto song was "I left my brains down in Africa," instead of "I guess it rains down in Africa." I guess I was showing my zombie-rific tendencies back then too.
In other news, Best Friend and her husband, the Electric Lovitz, had their second baby this weekend, and I got to be there and help out, which is beyond kewl. My only problem is what to call the baby. Best Lovitz is probably my best bet, because Electric Friend sounds a little pervy. Anyway, congrats are due to them.
And lastly, I've been having a lot of people (well, not HORDES, but enough to make me stop and pay attention) suggest that I should run a query letter clinic here at the Wonder That Is My Blog. For those of you who don't know, I'm the Query Ninja. I wander around the cybersphere with my virtual ninja garb on, pouncing on unexpected bloggers like Aaron and KC and critiquing their queries. I actually like to write queries, and I'm a nitpicker. These two things go together like pickles and shuriken. (And actually, I'd argue that pickles and shuriken go together in the List of Things I Think Are Kewl, so that isn't a totally ludicrous remark.) I'd be happy to do one, although I think there are plenty of peeps out there who are more qualified to do this kind of thing than silly ol' me. My question is whether there are enough of you out there in Query Land who would participate-slash-benefit.
So are there?
