I love my job, but why do my fellow police officer have to be so damn stupid? So far this year we have had officers wrecking police cars and then filing false reports. Reporting their personal cars stolen, when they really weren’t, for the insurance money. Beating up their girlfriends, just because they were breaking up with them, and getting arrested. Getting arrested for drunk driving. Getting into bar fights, WITH EACH OTHER! Shooting themselves, while playing with their guns. And the most recent thing I heard about, just yesterday, is having sex with a prostitute while working an extra job. This mess was supposedly caught on camera, in the building that the officer was suppose to be providing security for. Ain’t that some shit? Makes you just wanna run out and join your local police force, doesn’t it?
First of all let me say that my wireless internet sucks and I was unable to use the damn thing for four days, so I am very sorry if I have not got a chance to take a look at you good people’s blogs. I promise to catch up. Anyway, this is my first blog of randomness, so wish me luck.
First of all, did anybody see or hear about this? This precious little girl was born about three weeks ago, to a factory worker in northern India, with two skulls fused together as one. The end result was one baby, two faces. Both pair of eyes, noses, and mouths, on the infant, works normally. As a matter of fact, she is said to eat with one mouth while the other sucks a thumb (interchangeably, of course). This is a rare abnormality, but the family is taking it in stride. Talk about your unconditional love. I am not sure what I would do if my child was born with two faces, or heads, as the case may be. Go to YouTube and see the clip about the two headed girl, she’s a teenager now. It is both heart wrenching and uplifting story (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSy9W3gIhnQ ). But back to the two-faced baby; the kid has yet to be named, but she is already being worshiped as a reincarnated goddess, in her country.
Bobby Brown is a bitch! Can you believe this asshole has wrote, and I use the word wrote loosely, a new tell all book? This just goes to show that Bobby, much like O.J. Simpson, will do anything for money and to maintain his celebrity. Let’s see, first he does that one reality show, “Being Bobby Brown” Then there was “Gone County” and now this new book, Bobby Brown the truth, the whole truth and nothing but…, which peeks into his marriage to Whitney Houston (and yall know I love me some Whitney Houston). He says how she only married him to combat the rumors of her being gay (yeah, that worked), and how he never did cocaine until after he met Whitney. What he meant was that he couldn’t AFFORD cocaine until after he married up with Whitney. Yall know that until then he was just your average, going downhill, crack headed hustler. Get these quotes regarding his 15 year marriage to the pop diva, “it was doomed from the very beginning. Within the first year we separated, with several more to follow,” Brown writes. “I think we got married for all the wrong reasons. Now, I realize Whitney had a different agenda than I did when we got married . . . I believe her agenda was to clean up her image, while mine was to be loved and have children.” I think his ass is still mad that she canceled his insurance, that time he had that heartache and had to go to a county hospital. I would never even think about buying this book, but I wonder if he speaks about how he just to beat her ass. What a bitch, Bobby is. I could have done a whole post on his BItchdom alone.
While my internet was down I was able to get a lot accomplished, as it relates to my children’s picture book. I am only six drawing away from finishing this bad boy. I also went to Borders Books and have found six different publishers that will take submissions from new authors, without the aid of a literary agent. I am very excited about sending off my letter of query, to at least three, this coming weekend. So, I would like some honest feedback, for you good people, regarding my query letter. Here it is:
In the tradition of the Cat in the Hat, and the Bernstein Bears, Hero in Our Town is written entirely in verse. This book tells the story of an incompetent Hero, in a small town. The story is narrated by a little six year old boy, who bears witness to our Hero’s ineptitude, as he attempts to use his vast array of powers for good, only to wreck havoc in the small, hapless metropolis. As the story unravels we know that out little narrator is aware of Hero, but it is unclear if Hero is aware of the little narrator existence. Hero, in our town, is a picture book containing a 227 word count and 24 illustrations and designed to stimulate the reading muscles of kids three years old and older.
(Second paragraph, I will say a little about myself).
May I submit to you Hero, In Our Town, for your consideration? Should you be interested in publishing this manuscript, along with the illustrations, I would look forward to working with you and your editorial staff on revision as required. Thank you for your attention and consideration. I look forward to hearing and having the opportunity to work with you. Enclosed, find a SASE for your convenience in replying.
So, what do you think? Honest feedback please. Be brutally honest. I can take it. I wish I could find the disk to my scanner, so I could show yall the color drawing I completed, yesterday, of Hero and the narrator. I am also sending this in so they can get a sense of both the characters and my style of drawing. Keep your fingers cross for me. Hell, bump that, send in your prayers. I already have ideas for calendars, for petesake!
-One Man’s Opinion. Peace.
(Just for the record. The Two-Faced baby is not considered random Stupidity by any stretch of the imagination).
