    I have very *very* silly friends.

    I posted on Twitter that I’d read two books over the weekend. Carl said, “Isn’t *writing* two books over the weekend more your usual thing?” I claimed I’d never written *two* books over a weekend.

    I checked Twitter this morning to find the following:

    @BryantD Did you hear? @ce_murphy just finished two manuscripts in one weekend, while making oreos and stringing beads?

    @othergretchen Did you hear? @ce_murphy just finished twelve manuscripts on one weekend, while stringing Oreos like beads?

    @carlrigney I heard @ce_murphy was going to be the 12th Doctor.

    I’ve never been a game of Telephone before. *laughs and laughs*

    promise, i will almost never do this, post twittery things. pinky swear. i just thought that was really funny. :)

    I’ve been verbed!

    During today’s wars, I became a verb:

    SharonM: LOL, Cating. Hear no evil, see no evil, yada yada
    SharonM: Catie — not Cating
    meerkat: I like ‘Cating.” She is not a Noun, she is a Verb!
    mizkit: I’ll cate you if you’re not careful! :)
    SharonM: I know Catie. She COULD be a verb. :D
    meerkat: Sharon –exactly
    SharonM: See? :D
    mizkit: I must be a verb that means “inclined to workaholism”
    meerkat: “always in motion, the Cating is.”
    NewGuyDave: I need to be more cating
    mizkit: lol
    mizkit: i have been verbed!

    I really, truly love these wars. :) Not because I got verbed, but because of the camaraderie of people in an essentially solitary profession all getting together to work, from one side of the globe to the other. Sharon said yesterday she didn’t feeeeeeeeel like writing, but she thought, well, everybody’s expecting me to be there! and so she logged in and got 1900 words written. That just makes me happy. We even have one ambitious soul logging in from California now, which is *very* ambitious, since the wars start at 6:30am her time!

    They run daily, 9:30am-12:30pm Eastern, here, if you wanna join up.
