Guess who is coming to town?
Besides Santa Clause, you smartasses.............
Nicholas Sparks, my most favoritest author in the whole wide universe.
Yes, I read - shut up.
Some of you might know him for some of his books that have been turned into movies, like
The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, and Message in a Bottle
Now, don't get me wrong - the movies are good.
BUT the books are SO MUCH BETTER!!!!!!
Really, they are.
(FYI- anybody who liked the movie The Notebook really should read the book because the ending is different)
If I had to pick a fav, it would be either The Wedding, which is actually the follow up to The Notebook, or The Rescue.
Anyway, there is a luncheon next Friday where he will be speaking. Tickets are $50.00.
$35.00 of which is tax deductible.
Guess who can't go?
Thats right - ME.
You guys are so smart.
So, If I love this man's books so much, why can't I go?
Let me tell you why.
Because Council Bluffs, Iowa sucks my ass!
We have new Red light camera's.
I got 2 tickets WITHIN A MINUTE OF EACHOTER!!!!!!
In my husband's car ( hehehehe).
It doens't go against your driving record, but you get to pay a fine.
I was caught going though a yellow that turned red when I was almost though the intersection.
I"ll take that one for the team. I did go through a yellow.
THEN I was ticketed for failure to use turn signal. Which is funny because they send you the ticket in the mail with a picture of what you did to get the ticket and I was in the same lane in both pictures for that ticket. I WAS NOT CHANGING LANES OR TURNING!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought about actually fighting that one, but you still have to pay a $50.00 court fee.
I might as well save myself the time and pay the $65.00 ticket.
So add it up:
$65.00 + $65.00 = It sucks to be me and see ya next time 'round, Nicky.
I'm living on a buget and I just blew my spending money.
