I'm sure you all know that Janet Evanovich has a new book out - Twelve Sharp. And if you don't know, you gotta get reading her stuff. It's snort-milk-out-your-nose funny!
I just thought I'd share with you that I'm in the book! Well, my NAME is in the book. There's a character named Carmen, and while slightly crazy, she claims to be Ranger's ex-wife. I'm more of a Morelli girl myself, but I'll take what I can get. :)
I'm sure this has to do with my entry on Janet Evanovich's web site to name her 13th book. I mean, feel free to visit, but I'm sure I covered the best names in my submission. :) Ends Aug. 31 by the way.
I had a Stephanie Plum moment yesterday at the parking lot of the Tar-jay. I was behind this woman on the "street" where you turn into the parking lot. I sat behind her for several seconds, she moved up to the edge of reason when it came to pulling down the aisle that I was getting ready to pull into - leaving me enough space to pull in around her. She had no turn signal on, so I went ahead and turned in. And then she decided that she wanted the space that I had just seen, so she turned too and honked at ME! She parked right next to me and rolled down her window and was like "You scared me!" - Seriously, I've never been confronted like that before. If she'd have had a gun, I'm not sure I'd still be here. I told her that she didn't have her turn signal on, and she argued with me. I walked off saying "Turn signals are not optional, they're standard." Geesh! She had a scarf over her head, and I'm sure I heard her mumble something like I was discriminating against her. Dude, I don't discriminate by race. I discriminate by idiots! And yet, now I feel bad, even though SHE was wrong. I guess I could've walked away and said nothing.
Of course, If I'd have been in a Stephanie Plum novel, my car would've blown up or gotten run over or somehow destroyed right then. :)
