Time in a Bottle, and other songs I Abhor by Deb Jenny

As soon I saw that the theme this week was time capsules, I started hearing voices. More like a voice, to be specific. That of Jim Croce, singing Time in a Bottle. This is not a good thing. Time in a Bottle ranks up there as one of my all-time least favorite songs. One that makes me about want to slit my throat it is so grim, gloomy, depressing and…

Beauty School Dropout by Deb Jenny

I long ago recognized that I am the ultimate beauty school dropout. And I’ve made peace with this. I do what little I must to get by, and don’t lose too much sleep over it. Although lost sleep could be at the root of my beauty faux pas… I’ve long recognized that we all come to the table with our pluses and minuses. Back when our oldest child was ready…

Let’s Make a Deal! by Deb Jenny

My girlfriend calls my purse the Let’s Make a Deal purse. Remember that game show? Monty Hall would go into the audience filled with people dressed in ridiculous costumes like life-size lobsters and gigantic fuzzy dice and lugging enormous bags full of nonsense, and ask for the most unlikely item. Invariably at least one woman would have it along: the tube sock, the box of Creamettes macaroni and cheese, a…

Get that Post up STAT! by Deb Jess

Okay, here’s what’s going on: the city in which I live has received EIGHT inches of rain since last weekend (3 inches alone in the last few hours), and 30 city streets and major county and Interstate highways are now closed. There are COUCHES and CARS floating in flooded roads, four tornadoes have touched down in neighboring counties in the last few hours, and while my Internet connection is still…

My Hot 20 by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

For me, talent is one of the biggest factors in making someone ‘hot’ and so is generosity. These are the two factors I used for this list, with slightly more weight given for talent–ie everyone on the list is talented and some are also people I know to be very generous. (Please note that many of these authors are also physically hot and a few of them also create work…

The 20 Hottest Authors Alive by Deb Lisa Daily

I’m not sure who came up with this idea, but I think it’s pure genius. If it was me, I was probably drooling over a photo of John Grisham at the time, whom I have had a crush on since college. In no particular order, my picks for 20 Hottest Authors are:Kristen Harmel (Hell-o, the woman is so hot even Patrick Dempsey noticed.) Adena Halpern Hank Philippi Ryan Maggie Marr…

Fiction Hotties by Deb Jenny

Disclaimers: I really don’t pay much attention to pictures of authors and I’m rarely around male authors so I apologize that I’m not on the trail of author hotties. Had I been able to attend Book Expo (in LA,no less, land of the fabulous) I’d have definitely kept my eyes open for such a phenomena. But I stayed home for my son’s high school graduation, so I guess I will…
