Good Fun that is Funny

Well, I've had my fun, and I think quite a few of you enjoyed the page. And now, for your further edification, I present this fascinating article, which my sister sent in an attempt to disabuse me of the notion that water is harmful. (I can never keep a straight face in person, but I can through email ^_^ )

After our 70-some degree Tuesday, we had snow yesterday. There's still a dusting of it out there. Jack Frost can bite me. To quote Morticia Addams (upon turning the page in The Cat in the Hat) "Oh no. He lives."

What?!? You mean...that article you showed us yesterday wasn't for real? Oh my
God, Candace. I wonder if I should recall the company-wide e-mail I sent? Do you think I'll get in trouble for spreading such a falsehood? Will my job be in peril? Whatever shall I do?

Aaaaaand....scene.

It's supposed to snow here, too. Mother Nature is kind of a bitch sometimes, isn't she?

"Good fun that is funny"
-my favorite book quote, ever.

Amanda - OK, THAT would have been quite a scenario! Masterfully acted, by the way. ^_^

Claire - I think I like Morticia's even better. ^_^

Thank you. Now go tell the people I auditioned for on Tuesday that they should cast me.

Is there a day by which you are supposed ot hear back? Or is it just one of those "don't call us, we'll call you - or maybe not" things?

My submission to Bust was like that. They say in their guidelines that it can take them FOREVER to get to a story and that you'll only hear back if they're going to use it. How you're supposed to figure out when to give up and try and sell it to someone else is anyone's guess. :-P

Shit - you must have done something! They just called me!! I have a callback on Saturday! That's a big deal! For me, anyway.

Yes, it is usually a "don't call us" thing. It's uber frustrating!! And I can only imagine how frustrating it was when you submitted to Bust! Exactly - why do they leave us hanging???

Candace said...

WOWZA! How AWESOME!! This must be Thrilling Thursday considering the news we both got today! CONGRATULATIONS!! How exciting!! My turn to use lots of exclamation points!!!!eleventyoneone!!!!111!!

ARM said...

Good name for today! Thrilling Thursday.

It's a happy night in the midwest tonight. Too bad it's freezing.

Candace said...

No kidding. :-P We are burning the last of the wood. It's been flurryinhg on and off for 2 days. Nothing much - just enough to remind you that it SUCKS out.

Candace, you're such a kidder. I was totally fooled by that post.

Candace said...

Clearly. ;)

Even though I knew it was fake, I found the Snopes thing fascinating, because it was a kid who did this. Equally interesting was the fact that a city councilperson was so close to calling for a ban of DHMO. ^_^
