I've been pimped

The Smart Bitches Who Love Trashy Novels have posted some of their favorite books they reviewed in 2006, and they mentioned Major Crush! Since Vicki turned me on to them, I have admired the Bitches for loving romance novels, admitting it, and approaching discussion of them with intelligence and irreverence--just as I want to when I grow up. It makes perfect sense to me that since I like them, they would like my book, because we are on the same wavelength. But life usually doesn't work out that way. Seriously, how often does the boy you crush on actually like you back? Their review helped me glow through the release of my book back in July, and this second shout out is a wonderful way to end the year. I feel very lucky.

Hold it right there

I missed Brokeback Mountain. I missed Failure to Launch. I missed Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, even though it was filmed here in AL (O God--I can only imagine). I'm about to miss the new James Bond movie and Dreamgirls. Come to think of it, I've missed everything since Pride and Prejudice last year. I love movies, especially seeing them in the theater. But writing is more important to me, and that's what I do with my time whenever my husband keeps our son and gives me the afternoon off.

However, I'm going to see Reno 911 The Movie when it comes out in February or my name isn't Jennifer Echols.

(Actually it isn't.)
