Hump Day Hullaballoo

Bryan and I are shorthairs deep into writing a new novella (2/3 done?) between novels, and since the ball is in my court for a new chapter, this is going to be a short post today. Mostly, I’d just like to give a shout-out to my liver. I just want you to know your efforts don’t go unappreciated, my friend, even though you’re trapped in what some might see as an abusive relationship. But, don’t listen to them. It’s for your own good. I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t love you. The day you learn to stop giving me hangovers is the day you’ll learn to stop “falling down stairs.” Until then, you’d best be stocking up on the ibuprofen eyeshadow.
            But seriously, domestic violence isn’t funny. So stop laughing, asshole. If you know someone who really does like to punch women, he’d better be a transvestite boxer with a losing record, otherwise he’s earned himself a sledgehammer castration. Call me old-fashioned.
            Sorry for the randomness and lack of general theme here, folks. I promise greater things when Bryan takes the reins again Friday.
Also, as an overdue side note, author friend Kirk Farber recently won the Colorado Book Award for literary fiction for his novel “Postcards from a Dead Girl.” To view a pic of what a real, live, non-self-published fiction author looks like, click here (Kirk's the flame top. Bryan and Brandon are both pictured here too, just in case you’re dying to know what unpublished novelists look like...). Go to a bookstore and buy the book, foo!
Cheers,

  2. I got sad when I learnt about hump day, it's a very misleading name :( I think most people are very lucky their livers aren't capable of doing that though lol.

  3. I don't mean to be persnickety, but why is your liver walking around upside down? Is it discombobulated too?!

  6. I'd never thought of using a sledgehammer for castration...not that I think about castration much. Honestly.

    Congrats to your friend and I will definitely hunt around for that book.

  13. Be kind to your liver and it will be kind to you. You guys are so cute! I'm going to adopt you both since I'm old enough to be your mother. I'm the bloggy godmother afterall! Good luck on the Novella.

  14. Question about Hump Day: R Kelly and Rebecca Black write songs about the weekend, but do you know of any good 'hump day' songs? Someone needs to write one.

    And that is the LAST time I ever compare R Kelly and RB. Unless they appear in a sex tape together. She IS the right age for him, after all...

  16. Never harm a woman but do dissuade her if she has a knife to your bollox.

  17. you and your liver should try out a Jimmy Buffett concert/preparty some time.

  18. I commend your liver on the taste in beer... and you for spelling it correctly.

  19. i think that the concept of a sledgehammer castration is more than enough for a whole post. i find the idea delightfully amusing when it's being applied to rapists or abusers. and maybe there should be a viewing room like when a convict is executed for the victims & their families & the press to watch.

  20. We've all had that dream. The one where you are forced to sit down and talk to your liver face-to-face and answer for what you've done to it. Terrible dream.

  21. My liver used to be the Chuck Norris of my internal organs. Then I had my gall bladder removed and turned 30. I think Chuck missed his side kick. Good thing I quit drinking.
    Your posts always make me chuckle.
