Someone just sent me this:
So I decided to test it with my books.
The first full sentence of page 45 of the advance copy of Furiously Happy:
“It was like the Jesus-beach-footprint-in-the-sand poem, except with less Jesus and more bleeding.”
Trying again with the final version of Furiously Happy:
“It wasn’t enough blood to be worrisome.”
So that’s…not much better.
Okay. Let’s try the paperback of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened:
Yeah. I think we’re done here.
And now, the weekly wrap-up:
Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
- As requested: Furiously Happy, the poster.
- Meanwhile, I can’t even manage to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich without it looking like a crime scene.
- I would use these. A lot.
- “Leftover wine.” HAHAHA. You are adorable. But STOP KITTY is very handy to use a stopper between sips when your real kitty decides to be an asshole and knock it over on the table.
This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by You Made Me a Mother, a super cute picture book about motherhood. It looks innocent at first, but you start reading it to your kid and suddenly you’re draining your eyeholes of tears and your kid is asking you what the hell you’re crying about. The book came about because of a viral video and Harper Collins was quick to pen a deal with the writer, Laurenne Sala, and Robin Preiss Glasser, the illustrator behind the NYT Best-selling Fancy Nancy series and their adorable picture book that hits shelves March 8th. If you want to watch anyone weep immediately, this is the present for them. Works on all kinds of moms, especially moms having baby showers, moms whose kids are going to college, moms with taxidermy collections, moms who never have a hair out of place, and moms who strictly wear holey yoga pants. Probably not for moms who totally hate their kids. Pre-order at YouMadeMeAMother.com
