My dad passed this along to me, and I think everyone should check it out. Prepare to laugh yourselves silly:

The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest.

For those of you wondering why you should click on the link: It's a contest inspired by the most famous of all bad opening lines, "It was a dark and stormy night." They ask people to come up with horrible opening sentences and then judge accordingly. Some of them are truly bloody hilarious. I have been in hysterics the past ten minutes.

I think this one is my favorite--

The double agent looked up from his lunch of Mahi-Mahi and couscous and realized that he must escape from Walla Walla to Bora Bora to come face-to-face with his arch enemy by taking out his 30-30 and shooting off his nemesis' ear-to-ear grin so he could wave bye-bye to this duplicitous life, but the chances of him pulling this off were only so-so, much less than 50-50.

We found out we can't close on the house today. Dammit. We haven't found out when we can close, but in the meantime we're packing like fiends.

I hate packing.

I'm thinking Em's [livejournal.com profile] bubbleficathon would be a good way to brush up on my writing skills. Yet I'm so flaky these days, I just don't know if I could pull it off. Hmm...

Happy weekend, everyone!

PS. Packing sucks.

Your password is too easy to guess. It's recommended that you change it, otherwise you risk having your journal hijacked.

I like the way they used the word 'hijacked.' Like the (unlikely) possibility of someone hacking into my journal is tantamount to terrorism.
