I'm being moved again. Apparently a slew of people started calling the school to verify my employment for this dumb list thing. They decided I wasn't worth the trouble. I got to teach for 2 days. I am heartbroken. Time to pack and see where I'll end up now.

I couldn’t figure out why my boys were laughing so hard at me as I got in my car—until I started to drive & realized they had messed with my Waze. For an entire ride, I had Cookie Monster telling me: “In zero point one miles, make a left turn, then me want COOKIES, NUM NUM NUM!”

I'm absolutely crazy for THE ACCIDENTALS, by . Smart heroine & complex, interesting adult characters drawn in some of the loveliest writing I've read in YA. Perfect read for a musical teen.

I actually thought one of my dogs had wiggled under the front porch and was trying to get in my office from under the floor.

OR - and this is just a suggestion, fake person Twitter bot Joy Espey - people could purchase my book legally and thus ensure I get credit for the sale and earn a few cents toward paying back my book advance. Reported and blocked, asshat.
