Hello, it is Friday!

Yes I know I said I wouldn't be writing or even sitting in the same room as a computer but I tend to lie about these things. Liar liar pants on fire! Except I am not wearing pants, so there's that.

It's just that some folks emailed me about the deadline for the essays for Chicken Soup For The Divorced Soul. I double-checked with my Top Secret Chicken Soup Insider, and the deadline for entries is definitely July 30, 2007.

Here are the details again if you missed it:

The guidelines: Share your insightful, hopeful and heartfelt stories in Chicken Soup for the Divorced Soul and you’ll have the chance to win the Grand Prize of: • $350.00 cash • Publication of your story in Chicken Soup for the Divorced Soul (spring 2008) • Ten (10) signed copies of the book • The chance to become a local celebrity by having a book signing at your favorite local bookstore • Don't forget to read the Contest Rules

Also I think they should include a call for "witty stories" in there because I would like to hear some funny stories myself. I could have used that in my divorce, and frankly ya'll are funnier in the comments than I ever am, so get cooking! I mean, writing! And even if you don't win the Grand Prize but your essay is accepted, you get a small cash compensation and of course the coolness of being a published author in a well-known bestselling series.

If this sounds good to you, submit your essays to:

(Please make sure you put CAP in the subject line so they know to read ya'll essays first. heh.) Oh! And you can submit more than one story. This works well for us wordy types.


And also there is this thing called the Blog Reader Project and even though ya'll know I detest the word "blog" because I think it sounds like something you'd hork up while having a bad case of flu, they do have a neat survey that I guess is trying to figure out who reads what and why and also what brand of toothpaste you like. I don't know. I only know I am a terrible sucker for online surveys, so here it is if you are looking for Ways To Seem Busy At Your Desk:

Take the Blog Reader Project survey >

And finally, if you were wondering what I may be having for breakfast on this, The Day I Turn Old, well I am not telling you. But if you did happen to guess "cheeseburger from In-N-Out" you would not be very wrong. That is all I have to say about that.

Have a great weekend!
