What’s life like with Crazy-Pants Publishing-Girl?

Let’s imagine we’re Mister Lester…

Why! I feel so tall all of a sudden!

clarabowgarycooperchildrenofdivorceBack to reality here. The Mister does stand about a head taller than me, but I’ve never seen him in eyeliner. I’m not saying it’s bad—I remember a performance by Keanu Reeves as Siddhartha in “Little Buddha”—let’s just say he rocked that kohl-eyed look and leave it at that. Where were we?

Oh! Life with Crazy-Pants Publishing-Girl… I’m afraid it’s rather difficult. Last night I lost it over margins, demanded take-out Thai food for dinner, threatened to pour all the liquor in the house down the drain because even the slightest bit gives me a whopping headache, and could only be appeased by The Mister when he read aloud to me from Stephen King’s, On Writing. A book so funny and true I laughed until I fell asleep.

    Love Keanu. Love Stephen King. Love Thai food. And I used to sit by Gary Cooper’s grave and have lunch, back when I was working in Southampton as a “gofer” for a construction boss.

    I keep telling myself I should to get a copy of “On Writing”. After reading this post, I’m putting it on my shopping list.
