My husband commented today that I look really tired. No shit Sherlock! I swear he thinks I do nothing. He’s said it. The fact of the matter is, I never stop. Yes, I do some fun things. Sports, going to the movies or to the park with my kids, talking on the phone. But all these things are IN ADDITION TO, NOT INSTEAD OF, all my other responsibilties which include, cooking , cleaning, chauffering, helping with homework, cleaning up dog and cat poop-and on and on and on.
To add to the stress, when he gets home from work he has the balls to ask me why all the laundry isn’t done. IT WILL NEVER BE ALL DONE! Unless of course I get a maid, which isn’t going to happen either.
Get over it already pal.
(I do love the man, but he is completely clueless.)
This is a friend of mine from high school. He’s a great guy and apparently a book he wrote will soon be a movie! Funny, funny. He and his wife are complete sweethearts! I’m happy for them.
Douglas Brown’s Excellent Marital Sex Adventure
A few days ago, we heard through the proverbial grapevine that Denver-based journalist and blogger Douglas Brown had a hot proposal circulating the publishing world. And by hot, we mean the concept, which will see Brown document the results of a pledge between him and his wife to have sex at least once a day for 100 consecutive days. So no wonder New York‘s Vulture blog and Gawker were all over the proposal. “You have to assume that every single male editor who received the submission is already trying to figure out a way to get his wife to read the proposal without seeming like an asshole,” wrote Vulture on the book, provisionally titled JUST DO IT, while Gawker’s Emily Gould was less kind. “The whole ‘Set Time Period During Which I Tried To Make Myself A More Interesting Or More Debilitated Person’ thing is over, or should be.”
Chatter’s all well and good but it seemed just as good an idea to go to the source – the person shopping the proposal. Daniel Lazar laughed off the negative hype. “Vulture picked 2 most salacious paragraphs from entire 60 page proposal,” he said by telephone yesterday evening. “Yes, the book has a sexy hook but it’s much more about marriage, about falling in love with your spouse all over again. In someone else’s hands this would come off as lecherous or even silly but Doug has universally and wonderfully identified what makes marriage work.” Already Lazar has turned down a pre-empt and he expects to close on the deal sometime next week. “Even the editors who’ve turned this project down said that people are going to love [Brown].”
Today I launch my newest blog. My blog just for me! My other blog is sweet. I write about my kids, and the daily niceties of my existence. Unfortunately I told my husband, and my sister-in-law and my mom about this blog. So now I get nasty phone calls whenever I vent. My solution…this blog. Let’s get ready to rumble people…this is where I get real!
