|My dubious award|
So, my good "friend", Michelle Pierce, decided to give me an "award". Say all this in quotes because awards like this are like Friendship Bread, it sounds awesome at the start, but once you get into it you wonder if your "friend" is trying to tell you something. So big raspberries to Michelle on this one.
|Don't they look yummy?|
Now to mash the bag, so to speak.
The last 7 lines I wrote (in first draft glory)
A large engine purrs up behind us and revs. I cast a glance behind us and I see Greg glaring at me from behind the wheel of his truck. It fits his ego. It’s huge. The bright red paint is almost painful to look at. The truck is completely impractical, but I doubt Greg cares. The way he’s looking at me, I’m sure he’d like to introduce me to the dualies in back. The personalized plate tops the whole thing off. 55Crush. His number and nickname. Definite massive ego there.
“Don’t look at him,” Christina says as she pulls me back around. “He’s mad because I broke up with him.”
“Listen, about last night. I’m not…”
“This has nothing to do with that,” Christina interrupts me. “I was tired of him being a jerk all the time. I couldn’t even talk to someone without one of his goons looking over my shoulder.”
I don’t know what to say at this point, so I keep my mouth shut. The breakup couldn’t have been that long ago, but who knows. Greg is not a very smart individual. Greg revs his engine and peels out, choking us with a cloud of burnt rubber. My head feels like it’s about to split open. Thanks, Greg. Such a dick.
The last 7 songs listened to
This one is hard as I don't listen to just songs, I listen to entire albums. As such, the last seven songs are from my playlist for my current WIP and are all by the same band (I don't use shuffle). I'm not sure why I'm like that, I just am.
So, here are the Artists and Albums that I've listened to the most lately. The first 5 are part of my playlist for HJ.
- New Medicine -- Race You to the Bottom
- Emphatic -- Damage
- Slash -- Apocalyptic Love
- Art of Dying -- Vices and Virtues
- Saving Abel -- Bringing Down the Giant
- Kamelot (several albums on Spotify)
- Breaking Benjamin (several albums on Spotify)
