Some strange information of the past week:
One of WiDo's authors walked into a bookstore and asked if he could set up a signing. The response-- Yes, but it will cost you $250. (He declined.)
I heard about bloggers with over a million followers who earn their living by blogging. (How is this even possible and where do I sign up?)
I visited a church on Sunday where all the women were blonde, beautiful, skinny, dressed rich and looked like they worked out daily. It reminded me of a ms. I'm editing called "Tanned, Toned and Totally Faking it." And I felt totally intimidated.
How to make graduation party favors with balls of cake dipped in white chocolate, with a square of white chocolate on top, dyed red for the school's color, and tassel made from a string of red licorice. This little head was stuck on a stick and voila you have a cute little graduate on a stick.
And then there's what happened at said graduation party. We heard a big thump, a bird flew into the glass patio door. So it was not only graduate head on a stick, it was bird head in glass.
