Five Things Friday: Slacker Edition

I’m back from my overly long absence with a quick shot of five random things you should know on this fine Friday.

1. Beware the cholycystectomy.

Gallbladders sometimes don’t go without a fight. I ended up with muscle spasms, a partially-collapsed lung and some other stupidly debilitating side effects. After three weeks, though, I’m mostly all good. Embarrassed to say that I got beaten up by something the size of a walnut, but mostly all good.

2. MaGM will be back next week, and will feature the fantastic Liza O’Connor

I can’t wait. She’s super funny!

3. FYI, coconuts are deadlier than sharks. 

According to the article I read, “There were 91 incidents of shark encounters last summer, Burgess said, including 76 unprovoked attacks on people by sharks.” What I want to know is, what the hell were those 15 other people thinking?

4. If you write, you should be following Kristen Lamb’s blog.

She made me give a character a conflict transplant this week. The character is still prickly, but now she’s got legitimate (and not too overblown) reasons.

5. …aww, forget it. 

I’m too tired to find another fact. Have a great weekend!

  1. Wait, how do you get killed by a coconut? Are these unprovoked coconut attacks? What if I provoked a shark with a random coconut? Still dead either way, I suppose. Nice to have you back Kristen.

    • I’m so glad you understand my humor, Diane. lol

      (Also, I’d think your chances of surviving a shark attack would be BETTER if you had a coconut. Apparently, they’re the evillest of all tropical fruits and I’m betting the shark would know that and be appropriately respectful.)
