Who's on first?

Conversation with Jason on Monday night:

Jason: What are you doing babe?

Me: Just looking at this contract.

Jason: *sighs sadly*

Me: What?

Jason: I bet you already told all your friends at "Jason loves Jesus" that you have a contract.

Me: Jason. For the love of God.

Jason: What? I'm sad because you told them before me.

Me: No. I didn't. And it's Jason. For the love of God.

Jason: For the love of God, what?

Me: The blog name, hon.

Jason: What did I say?

Me: You said, "Jason loves Jesus". That's not it.

Jason: Oh, right. So you told your friends at "Jason. What the hell?" right?

Me: NO. JASON. I did NOT TELL THEM.

Jason: Really?

Me: REALLY.

Jason: Oh, okay.

Me: And it's "Jason. For the love of God."

Jason: For the love of God, WHAT?

Me: THAT'S THE STUPID BLOG NAME!!!!

Jason: Oh.

Me: *huffs*

Jason, quietly: Isn't that what I said?



It's a good thing he's cute. For real.







Oh and by the way? I got a contract to write a book.


Not THE book. Not a book I've already written, but a book I've been asked to write.

Don't get your panties in a wad yet. Really. More deets later. It's not my big break or anything, but it's a start and a good, positive one.



And now I've told everyone. Sort of.
