    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

    34,010 words and finished before going out to dinner! All caught up with NaNoWriMo Summer Challenge and apparently in my literary exertions today, Benign Poltergeist did away with my cell phone. Again. Oh well.

    * hurries to shower before dinner so people don't know I sat around smelling all day *

    I spent most of my day yesterday reading those. Her latest post says she is going to recap the next two books, and I am eagerly anticipating more snarky takedowns to come.

    I've been reading that blow-by-blow (snicker) review of 50 Shades and laughing all morning. THANK YOU!!! It's the best review ever, and I want her to continue through the series because I don't want to read the actual books.

    The sad thing is that it was entirely unintentional.

The details shall not be shared, and I don't think I'll be drinking anything other than water for the next six months. OY.

    Now I am back home and behind on NaNoWriMo Summer, so I am struggling to catch up. Also, I tip my hat to Lady Friend, who took my blurb and made it magical. She has a gift for the succinct that I do not. And best of all, SHE LEFT THE CLICHE!!!

    I think this blurb makes it sound like a wonderfully trashy melodramatic fantasy -

    Ambress ad’Allace, born to the lowest caste of nobility, must marry well to have any chance of a better life. Since childhood, she has been tutored in the art of making a match with a son of the Fiefe, but the odds are against her. However, Ambress has one possession that would make her the envy of even the royals in her land: an incomplete set of ancient necklaces full of talismanic magic.

    Growing up perilously on the edge of higher society, Ambress hopes these necklaces are her key to landing a noble boy and securing her future. But despite all her tutoring, she falls in love with the slave boy Prandor, even though marriage is not for love but title. Ambress cannot possibly give herself to Prandor, who has had her heart since they were children. Or can she? In a world where the lines between the classes are thick, and one misstep spells ruin for generations to come, is there any magic that allows them each other?
    Right! Gotta get that book, never mind the blurb, up and available on the intarwebs! And hey, when the cliché fits . . .

    Also, what that margarita mix looked like when it was, let's call it, "reconstituted," will probably haunt me for the rest of my days. Blech.
