You'll forever associate me with Hemingway after reading this. I'm a drinker, people. And today, I have foregone the lightweight Celestial Seasoning's Red Zinger for the hard stuff.
Yeah, you know what I'm talking about. Diet Coke. On the rocks. With lime. There's even a diet Mountain Dew chillin' in the ice box for later. Ahhh, it's good to be me. (At least until I run out of soda. When it's gone, my life loses that glossy sophistication you all admire.)
See those cute kids in the photograph? I love them. They are awesome. Yet, on occasion, they drive me to drink. Sometimes straight-from-the pantry, room temperature, full-strength Coke. I'm not proud of it, but those are gritty, hard-bitten days.
Enough with the soft drinks and irony, we have winners to announce! Except we're not announcing them until 9:00 P.M. EST. This way, you have time to hit me with your totals. Or if you can't do that, I'll look over the last two weeks worth of comments and tally them myself.
This is a picture of my son practicing a scene from Nacho Libre for his Spanish class. I just put it in because I think it's funny. He's the one in the mask, hanging upside down.
Check out the lovely ballerina above. See why I asked for help with my teenage daughter?
Thanks for your participation in this contest, blogging buddies. I'll post the prize winners tonight!
P.S. You should check out YA Author Elana Johnson's blog. She has a video clip with a guy signing to Party In The USA by Miley Cyrus. He is so cute. I love his facial expressions. Especially at the very end and in the 'swingin' my hips like, yeah' chorus. Definitely awesomesauce, Elana.
Do you think that anyone has ever mentioned Hemingway and Miley Cyrus in the same article before?
