Road to Writing
When I first started, I thought all you had to do is write a book. Can you say *naive*, boys and girls? Join me on my journey as a pre- published writer looking to see my name on the cover of a book. I'll talk about all the bumps, bruises, joys and frustrations I encounter along the way.

Oooh! "Space Cowboys"!

I met up with Sheri tonight in a local bar to smother her battle scars with alcohol (my friend Kip joined us). Admittedly, I was the only one drinking, as evidenced by my constant declaration of "It's the beer." Here's some quotes from our night (in no particular order):
  • You know, I saw her through the window and now I don't see her.

  • fuck face

  • I'm gonna lose my 'I wanna shot' buzz.

  • Barry Manilow!

  • This song reminds me of Viagra.

  • I wish [he] would walk through the door right now, but I'd settle for [him]. (Names removed to protect the innocent...and the not-so-innocent)

  • He looked good in leather.

  • His chest was so hairy he looked like he was wearing a bathroom rug.

  • I feel like I should be stoned for this song.

  • Look at her tattoos.

  • Let's keep talking so he won't try to draw us into the conversation.

  • Where are you from?

  • I couldn't understand a word he said.

  • He knows we're married and he actually gave us his phone number.

  • Now I really need that damn shot!

  • I wonder if she used to be a stripper.

  • I've never heard "Brick House" sound so much like elevator music.

  • It makes me never want to dance again.

  • Table dances are free--go ahead and hop on up.

  • Thanks a lot, guys.

  • Oh, you meant the state? I thought you were talking about Kansas, the band.

  • HEAD EAST!!!

  • Oh. My. God.

  • (points to ring finger) I'm married.

  • Where the hell's that damn waitress?

  • Oooh! Space Cowboys!

  • I can't believe they're actually playing this. -- It's ten to one. I can.

  • (rolling eyes at each other)

  • There's that damn waitress!

  • No, I'm the only lush here.

  • Okay, all of a sudden he's cute.

  • Oh, look! The prayer channel!

  • Oh, look. He's conducting.

  • I have to warn you. It's not Derek St. Holmes. (BTW, Sheri. I checked the schedule. Although this week was originally listed for that bar--I swear--now this week and next week are blank.)

  • Oh, he does have drumsticks.

  • Why are all his fingers bandaged?

  • EWWWW!

  • I gotta wash that.

  • Oh, look. They match.

  • I thought you'd be standing there with Bubba!

  • What the hell did he say?

  • Oh, gross! My heels are sticking to the floor!

  • He looks like a child molester.

  • Give him your husband's phone number.

  • She's got a butt like a man.

  • The family is the family.

  • Lottie says: Foreigners don't tip.

  • When you go out, don't talk to anybody.

  • That was kind of scary.

  • I'm married too.

  • You're nice people. American's are not nice people.

  • Sorry? I didn't get that?

  • Shit, that was weird.

  • Why do 300-year-old men always try to pick up on me?

  • Stupid Audioblogger. (Ths one was said by me when I tried to audioblog and got a consistent busy signal)

And that's just a small part (believe it or not) of our night. I think we succeeded in smothering Sheri's wounds. What do you think? (Yes, Eve, we do always end up with stories after we go out.)



    Oh the memories!

  • If only I could have been there LOL

    By Blogger Gena Showalter, at 9:59 AM  

  • That sounds like so much fun! Do you know how long it has been since I went out on a night with the girls? I can't even remember. LOL

    Anyway, I love you new template! Looks great, Lynn!
    Come check out my new website, Dana's Back Porch (http://southerngalgoesnorth.bravehost.com)

  • Holy cripes I'm jealous of your great looking blog.

    And your Night On the Town sounds like you had a bit too much fun. What hysterical lines. I can't believe you remembered all that.

    By Blogger Eva Gale, at 11:31 PM  

  • Thanks a bunch, Briana!

    I have to admit, I didn't exactly remember those lines by myself. At the end of the night, I looked at Sheri and said, "I'm gonna blog this." So we pulled out pen and paper and started listing all the good lines we could remember. But it really was a great night.

  • Thanks, Dana. I like this layout, too.

    Sheri and I tend to try to get out every couple of months, but when I first started going out again, it had literally been years for me. I figure I deserve this now.

    Your website looks great!

    By Blogger Lynn, at 12:42 AM  

  • Gena--We definitely had a great, and somewhat off-the-wall, time. And we're always open to more "victims"!

    By Blogger Lynn, at 12:44 AM  

  • Sheri--I don't know about you, but I'll be remembering that night for a looooong time!

    By Blogger Lynn, at 12:44 AM  

  • Uuuuh... A Girls' Night Out. Sounded like fun. Just the strippers were missing... *evil grin*

    By Blogger Silma, at 10:12 PM  

  • Silma--The male ones, anyway. There were a couple chicks on that dance floor that seemed to be channeling strippers. *g*
