OMGosh!!! I am not alone! Funny scripts are made from the same thing that plaques my life...dinner parties, family *get-to-gathers and harass the writer*...LOVE THIS!!!!jink
I knew you would, Jink, although let me guess--you winced, too, right? A friend of mine got so tired of answering the "when are you going to be finished" question on facebook that she now just replies with this. It's hilarious--she has it where it says about me on the bio page. She's going through query hell right now as I go through final push hell, so we've been commiserating.

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button": Did you love it or hate it?

Earlier this week, Colleen and I went to see "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", the extraordinary movie based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I loved it. Colleen not s'much.

APATHY AND OTHER SMALL VICTORIES by Paul Neilan is only good if you enjoy things like laughter

The only thing Shane cares about is leaving. Usually on a Greyhound bus, right before his life falls apart again. Just like he planned. But this time it's complicated: there's a sadistic corporate climber who thinks she's his girlfriend, a rent-subsidized affair with his landlord's wife, and the bizarrely appealing deaf assistant to Shane's cosmically unstable dentist. When one of the women is murdered, and Shane is the only suspect who doesn't care enough to act like he didn't do it, the question becomes just how he'll clear the good name he never had and doesn't particularly want: his own.
