I don’t know why I never thought of this before but from now on I’m going to use the Internet as my own personal Magic 8 Ball for advice and direction instead of those damn fortune cookies. | Fetch My Flying Monkeys
Everyone needs a fleet of flying monkeys to rip the stuffing out of the annoying people in their lives
— Laura

Me: “Whoa. I asked people on Facebook for book recommendations and I got like fifty comments.”


J: “That’s neat, any good suggestions?”


Me: “Lots. And do you know what’s kind of funny?”


J: “What’s that?”


Me: “Some of them said things like “The lead character reminds me of you” and it was some kick-ass chick who was killing people or zombies and shit. As a matter of fact, most are books with a strong female lead.”


J: “Nothing funny about that. If there were ever a zombie apocalypse, I’d definitely want on your team.”


Me: “Oh my God. THAT is like the sweetest thing you ever said to me.”


J: “I say sweet things to you all the time.”


Me: “Yeah, but that’s all ‘Ooo blah blah love you blah blah you’re so pretty blah blah’ crap. This is real stuff.


J: “You’re so romantic.”


 


P.S. Speaking of Facebook, I will be leaving for Georgia today and will return next week. I won’t be bringing a laptop but I may Facebook a little through my iPhone. Did you know I have an iPhone? Well, I do. Anyway, friend me on Facebook and I’ll post some pics of Savannah and of my dinner at Paula Deen’s. I know you don’t want to miss pictures of fried chicken and old houses.

  1. Sean says:

    Just got home after a 23 hour day. I needed a funny and got one. Thnx.
    *** You are welcome and thank you for saying that. ~Laura

  2. Red December says:

    Have a safe trip. I for one will be looking at your pictures. I love Paula and old houses. Never been to Savannah! Looking forward to your trip!
    *** Me too. Thanks. ~Laura

  3. Michelle says:

    Enjoy your trip!
    *** Thanks, I’m sure I will. ~Laura

  4. Sam I Am says:

    Line up your cabbie and head to the wharf where that frozen drink bar place is – slushies, all alcoholic – try the Long Island Tea – ONE ONLY – after one, the men all look like Boo. You really don’t want that, they change overnight and aren’t Boo when you wake up. A cabbie is a must-have, more than the purse or anything else, mostly to navigate the one way streets. For what it’s worth, the police are not very accommodating or understanding about being directionally challenged, even if you are under the influence….I’m just sayin’….Have a wonderful time, Savannah is the best of the South!
    *** Oh I hate getting “Boo” glasses when I drink. Thanks for the advice, frozen booze slushies are right up my alley. ~Laura

  5. LeeAnn says:

    Better than pictures of old chicken and fried houses.
    I told H about you and what J said about the zombies and he said I’d be very good to have around in case of a zombie invasion too.
    He said he could throw me at them and then run while they were distracted, because I had inherent yum factor.
    That’s kind of romantic. I think.
    *** HAHA! Yes, I think it is very romantic, but keep an eye on him, just in case. And for godsake never go swimming with him where there might be gators or sharks or piranha or even snapping turtles. ~Laura

  6. Jennifer says:

    LOL!! I love your convos with J! He really needs to step up is game and tell you how kick-ass and deadly you are more often! LOL!
    *** He really does. ~Laura

  7. Holly says:

    Have a great trip and bless J being all romantic in a zombie flesh way :)
    D pointed out to me last night “hey – everyone who owns (car in film – some land rover or something) survives the zombie apocalypse/attack.
    Guess what car we’re getting this year…
    *** You really do need something that will make it easier to plow into a bunch of them. Just remember, you will eventually run out of fuel so you will need a good arsonal of weapons and a few slow people to throw at them as decoys as you run away. Dibs have already been called on LeeAnn. Oh, and dogs make good zombie alarms so YOU NEED A PUPPY.~Laura

  8. garnet says:

    I bet you J knows what you’re capable of and just doesn’t mention it out of fear. lol
    *** HAHA! ~Laura

  9. Heather says:

    Have a great trip and don’t kill any zombies!
    *** Thanks and I will if I have to. ~Laura

  10. Joe the Blog Stalker says:

    I need a woman who will kill zombies and make beer braised roast on her down time.
    *** Yes you do. And isn’t that recipe to die for? Figuratively speaking of course.~Laura

  11. Princess says:

    Now I know where to go for my dilemmas when I just cant make a decision. I will go to FB! Yeah! Do you think that will work for dating tips? just askin!
    *** I am pretty certain you could even get lots of dates there. ~Laura

  12. Nicole says:

    Have a great time! Stuff yourself till you waddle like a penguin!
    *** PENGUINS!! YES! I am going to order so much food rescue units will be standing by to use the Jaws of Life to get me out of that place. ~Laura

  13. Tink says:

    Penguins… indeed!
    *** Indeed! ~Laura

  14. Tim says:

    Better than pictures of old chicken and fried houses. Hahaha! The comments are almost as funny as your postings sometimes! Hey, I said ALMOST. Have a great trip!
    *** They really are. And thanks! ~Laura

  15. cbullitt says:

    Happy New Year Laura.
    And remember, there’s no such thing as too much butter.
    *** Happy New Year to you! And I need that embroidered on a pillow. ~Laura

  16. Erik says:

    One of the lead characters in my zombie story will be named Lori, Lauri, Lorraine or some variation of your name. I don’t want to name her Laura, then have to kill her off, and then something happen to you in real life, like some literary voodoo doll or something.
    Or if I do write a book and get published and make a whole load of cash, have you come start hitting me up. Cause then I would have to kill off the Laura character in the next book, come what may.
    Have fun in Savannah. I listened to a song by Relient K yesterday called “Savannah”. I think its about the town, and sounds like a good traveling song.
    *** I will go all Misery Kathy Bates on your ass if you kill off my character. Just saying.
    Thanks and you have a great New Year! ~Laura

  17. Miss Nikki says:

    That reminds me… I need to start making a list of me team in case of zombie attacks, also I should put together a kit and keep it in my truck with shit like uh… you know chain saws, bats, and machine guns… justice in case. Do you think I should include vampires in my attack kit? Gosh, you never know what could happen!
    *** ALWAYS carry some holy water and crucifixes AND silver bullets. You never know. ~Laura

  18. Jena says:

    LOL @ Jennifer and Leann.
    J, you sweet talker you. NOW you know what she will respond to! *snort* We know how much she loves you. She needs you to balance her violent side.
    I’m telling ya, Laurell Hamillton.
    Have a great trip and Happy New Year! and J too!!
    *** Happy New Year to you and Sean and the kitties! ~Laura

  19. Becky says:

    Have a Great New Year and take lots of pics!
    *** Happy New Year to you and I will! ~Laura

  20. Jan says:

    J is such a romantic! And fortune cookies are overrated.
    *** He really is. Well, I was told to add “in bed” at the end of all of them, which made them kind of interesting. ~Laura

  21. Larry says:

    Poor J. I get the feeling he walks around looking confused a lot.
    Savannah is a beautiful city, have fun on your vacation!
    The new Monster Hunter book is coming out this fall. I am going to be a redshirt in it and die horribly by werewolf.
    *** Oh, death by lycan, how cool! J always looks at me like “WTF?” or just rolls his eyes or both. I plan on having lots of fun, thanks! ~Laura

  22. patti says:

    No iPhone here but I gots one very cute pony who is a stinker and lots more fun than some stinkin’ iPhone – more expensive too, so there.
    Have fun and enjoy the Paula McButter restaurant :)
    *** My iPhone has a pony wallpaper SO THERE! Imma gonna so swimming in her butter fountains that are scattered throughout the restaurant. ~Laura

  23. MorningGlory says:

    I just want to wish you and J a Happy New Year! Thanks for all the great blogging you did in 2010, and I’m looking forward to more adventures in 2011.
    Lorrie
    *** We hope you have a fantastic New Year too! And you’re welcome- thank you for reading! ~Laura

  24. lifeshighwy says:

    When you are fighting zombies you could go Laura Croft and I know J would love that because all guys love them some Laura Croft. You could wear all your weaponry dangling from your little tiny shorts and wear some kick-ass boots.
    Have a great trip.
    *** Hey, that’s what I wear when I go grocery shopping! ~Laura

  25. Larry says:

    And the problem with the magic 8 ball is sometimes you have to shake it several times to get the answer you wa – I mean, the right answer.
    For example, if the question is “Should J catch the goat for me” the answer is obviously “Yes” but sometimes you have to shake the 8 ball to make it agree.
    On the internets, you usually get the correct answer within a comment or two.
    *** YOU are right! From now on I’m asking you guys until you tell me what I want to hear. ~Laura

  26. Cheryl says:

    LOL! J knows you best, so I want on your team too!
    *** Okay, and it’s BYOW (Bring Your Own Weapon.) ~Laura

  27. Mary Beth says:

    Happy New Year Laura and have a great time in Savannah!
    *** Thanks and Happy New Year to you! ~Laura

  28. kim says:

    Aw that is sweet. A few weeks back I was in a fight with my “J” and posted my annoyance on fb. My cousin (male, football/wrestler type) commented “I think you could take him”. I told him I thought that was the sweetest thing he ever said to me :)
    *** HAHA! I know! Bets that “you’re so sweet” crap doesn’t it? ~Laura

  29. Cappagam says:

    The best New Years Ever….to all ya”ll. and Herman too!
    *** Right back at you! ~Laura

  30. Tink says:

    Penguins… indeed!
    *** Look at all the penguins. ~Laura

  31. SB Smith says:

    You – a tough chick ?
    The way you love dinosaurs, you could probably call some up to eat everybody….Hey, that could come in handy…LOL..
    I don’t know about fried chicken, but I love old houses !…Pictures Please !..and I’m eagerly awaiting your review of Paula Deen’s restaurant.
    *** Pictures will be coming! ~Laura

  32. Booby hatch says:

    Love the Banner! really cute. Have a great and wonderful New Years. Stay safe….See you next year!
    *** Happy New Year! ~Laura

  33. Box Car Will says:

    First time commenter but I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog and I am really looking forward to next year. I think you are a hoot! Have a great one!
    *** Thank you and you have a great New Year too! ~Laura

  34. Brea says:

    Hey, where can I get my “Team Laura” t-shirt??
    It could have baby animals in sports jerseys, and dinosaurs and a pygmy goat coach with a whistle, and JACK as MVP on the front!
    Zombies and sonsabitches beware! Team Laura!
    *** FUCK YEAH! Ha! ~Laura

  35. Elphaba says:

    Happy New Year, Laura! Thanks for all the LOLs…heaven knows I need ‘em.
    I love your New Years banner, but it NEEDS MORE GOAT! =D
    Much love from us at RSW…here’s to a year filled with goats, circus peanuts, and George Clooney (so long as he keeps his mouth shut). And no more rabies. Cheers!
    *** Happy New Year yo you! ~Laura

  36. mel says:

    Y’all come back, now, ya hear?
    Have fun, lady :)

  37. SB Smith says:

    I think this has already been mentioned here…and it’s an oldie, but always add the words “in bed.” to the end of a fortune cookie. Much more fun that way.
    *** Except I’m an insomniac so I’m rarely in bed. So that just sucks. ~Laura
