WTF Wednesday

1. WTF is up with Ryan Cabrera's hair? Seriously, dude. That look didn't work in 1999 and it's STILL NOT WORKING.



2. I'm back to refreshing my e-mail every 5 seconds. Literally. Even the automatic refresh function in yahoo isn't satisfactory. WTF is wrong with me? What am I even waiting for? I wish I knew.

3. There is a LOT of flirting going on via Twitter these days. Have you guys noticed? WTF? Is Twitter the new place for swinging singles to meet up? Is it weird that Laura and I mainly use Twitter to argue amongst ourselves? Wait...don't answer that last one.

4. Speaking of Twitter wars, Laura totally owes me a case of Diet Dr. Thunder after losing a bet with me last Friday. WTF, isn't it time for The Lone Roecker to PAY UP?

5. Laura also tried to convince me that we need to make some kind of crazy ass pact to look at our book cover together for the first time. WTF, Laura? Have you met me? Do you really think all this e-mail refreshing is for my health? When that fateful e-mail arrives I'm opening it faster than you can say, "What Would Nancy Drew Do?"

6. We've updated our website to include the words "dicking around on the internet." WTF is wrong with us? Wait...definitely don't answer that last question. For the record, Laura came up with it as a joke and I argued that we absolutely had to include the term because if I ever read that on another author's website I would 100% buy their book.

7. WTF is up with LiLa and why haven't they commented on your blog lately? Um, yeah, we suck at comments lately and feel absolutely terrible about it. We're trying really hard to make our way through all of our unanswered comments, but we also like to do other stuff like write and sleep. So, don't hate us. We love you and read (and sometimes reread!) every single comment. And we will visit your blog someday very soon or respond via e-mail because we think you are all amazing.

Ok, your turn. WTF is bugging you this Wednesday?

Woah. That hair is something. Why does she always date weirdos? I'm still trying to figure out twitter ( i need twitter for dummies) and even when i do figure it out, i don't think I'd ever been capable of flirting on the thing. It'd probably come out all wrong and people would think I had mental issues. (well, more mental issues than they already do:)

Christine Danek said...

I'm with Creepy Query Girl on Twitter. I have no idea what I'm doing and I feel like such a dork in that world.
That hair needs help. Bad.
Why do my cats wake me up at 5:30 to eat when there is food already in their bowls?
HAve a good one.

Piedmont Writer said...

You must absolutely have "dicking around on the internet" on your site. That is the best line I've heard in a long time.

Dude, the hair?

My WTF is the electricity went down for 8 hours yesterday and I had no idea my article was published on Guide ot Literary Agents. Yeah, so I kind of missed it.

Melissa said...

That hair is ridiculous. And I wouldnt know if people flirted on twitter because I am still not using it.

My WTF Wednesday is why the hell did I think it was a good idea to take summer courses. I have finals today and Im so not ready... stupid blogs and being way more entertaining than work... who knew.

Matthew Rush said...

I have no idea who that guy is but it looks like he's trying to bring back 80's bangs - only on dudes. It looks terrible on him but I bet someone could pull it off. Maybe Puck from Glee?

Lisa, want me to forward you some stupid chain emails so you have something in your inbox? My father in law has copious amounts of ultra right wing borderline racist jokes he would love to share with you.

Jonathon Arntson said...

I think Laura needs to upgrade #4 as punishment for taking so long and get you the real professional, Dr. Pepper.

As for #6: I would 99.9% buy a book based on the usage of that line.

WTF? is up with this huge ass storm heading across Lake Michigan when I am trying to write and there are these bright flashes and clangs and rumbles and bumbles and tumbles and now I've gone into a rhyming fit...

Lisa and Laura said...

Um, WTF is up with me overusing caps lock in this post? I'll admit that I wrote this one in the wee hours of last night and when I read it again this morning, that was my first thought.

Simon C. Larter said...

1. There's always been a lot of flirting going on via Twitter. WhereTF have you been?

2. For the record, I don't flirt on Twitter.

3. I occasionally prevaricate. But just occasionally.

4. I love WTF Wednesdays because it gives me an excuse to leave random listy-type things in your comment section.

5. If you keep asking WTF is wrong with you, people will answer it, you know.

6. The blogospheric resentment over your lack of return-commentage is reaching volcanic proportions. Seriously, like Mt. St. Helens before it blew type proportions. If your computer doesn't explode soon from the collective angst arrowing its way through the ether, I'll be hella surprised.

7. Kidding. People like you whether you comment on their blog or not. How could we not <3 you after that heart-rendingly tearful look on the vlog the other day? (I smell Oscar nomination, baby.)

8. Do Oscar nominations smell like coffee? Cuz that's what I'm smelling right now. I'm just assuming it's an Oscar nomination....

10. I'm calling for a pillow fight in the next vlog. Just putting that out there.

Candyland said...

That Ryan hair sure doesn't help my Wednesday...

Dianne K. Salerni said...

I can't imagine Lisa waiting even a second to open the email attachment with your cover ... and I suspect that even Laura might peek and then claim she didn't. (That's what I'd do.)

Here's my WTF Wednesday moment:

Why have I awakened every morning this week racked with anxiety even though I DON'T have to go to work? Why can't I chill out?

Jen said...

You guys rock!!! Even though you haven't stopped by to comment I won't hold it against you... only because I too have been awful about making it around to the blogs!

What's bugging me? The fact that I have a sexy new idea and I can't work on it because first I have to finish my 8 hour day so I can get paid until the writing gig becomes a paying one!

Falen said...

omg, "dicking around on the internet" is FULL OF WIN

Even though i was already going to buy your book(s), I'm going to buy them HARDCORE now

Jill Wheeler said...

Who is Ryan Cabrera?

My lack of patience is bugging me today.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Wow, and I thought my hair looked bad (still sticking pins into my hairstylist (???) voodoo doll for that one).

Oops! Hope my uber sexy husband hasn't noticed me flirting with @jonathonarnston. ;)

Okay, tell me the truth. You're really waiting for me to email you. Huh huh. But you know, I've been super busy with my best selling novel that I haven't had time. (oh wait! that was my dream last night. sigh).

What's really bugging me? Waiting to get to see your book cover. Seriously. :D

Kristi Helvig said...

Yeah, I've never heard of Dr. Thunder but it's a way more bad-ass name than Pepper. :)

Corey Schwartz said...

WTF is up with my six year old? She wet the bed. I picked her up, changed her clothes, laid her on the floor, changed the bedding, put her back in bed and she NEVER once woke up.

JEM said...

I frequently read "WTF?" as "Who told Frank?" What does that have to do with your post? Absolutely nothing, ladies. Absolutely. Nothing.

Renae said...

I love these posts! I'm with some of the others trying to figure out Twitter. If my sister were on there though I could totally see us arguing back and forth!

Jackee said...

Maybe he took the line "now we're going to party like it's 1999" seriously? Who can say what goes through celeb's heads.

What's bugging me? Some idjit who left a campfire burning and now our whole mountain is burning. But I've already whined about that on the blog post you read, so I'll shut it. :o)

Email refresh is definitely a fair weather friend!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

When I stop laughing, I might come back and leave an actual comment. For now, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! :-)

Jessica said...

I was in an elevator at the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas with Ryan Cabrera once. Yup. Just me and Ryan. All alone.

He was REALLY short. I mean, I'm extra tall, but he was extra, extra short. So maybe he's trying to make up some hight with that hair.

Holli True said...

LOL!! Dicking around on the internet- that is PRICELESS and made my day! I think we could all put that on our websites!!

Oh, and Ryan- the hair is tragic. No, it's beyond tragic. I can't even find the words to describe it...

LOVE your blog!

Marsha Sigman said...

My status is always set to dicking around on the internet. In fact, that may be a permanent setting for my life.

WTF is happening with the time? It flies by unless I have to work and then it draaags so slowly.

Conda V. Douglas said...

I know WTF where my time went--to the puppy!

Carolyn V. said...

Oh my gosh. That hair scared me!

I want to know why I am too tired to write. Is it the sunburn? =)

Natalie said...

Yeah, I've had the email refreshing problem for more than a year now. It's very unhealthy.

I really need to get something done today. I'd be happy with just about anything (clean house, real dinner, 500 words), but I'm so tired! Heat and pregnancy are killing me.

Dara said...

Here's mine: WTF is with my company wanting me to be secretary for two offices, which are a good twenty minutes apart, with no raise...oh and WTF is with Sam's Club cashiers making more than I do???

ARGH.

salarsenッ said...

Is that what peeps are doing on Twitter? Man, I really suck at it then...

Hair - be gone!! Just light a match.

Jenn (Books At Midnight) said...

LOL. That is some insane hair. And I have the talent of refreshing about every 2 seconds - I think I win. :D

Jemi Fraser said...

Scary hair!!

It's hard keeping up with it all - I'm always tired - just do your best & don't worry about it! :)

Elana Johnson said...

Dude, I feel your last one. I read blogs forever yesterday and barely made a dent. I'm summering, remember?

Oh, and yeah. I have this anxious need to check email too, and for nothing! It's so lame.

My biggest beef right now is mean people on forums. Seriously, I don't have time for that. WTF? I'm taking a 30-day forum vacation, and then I'll see if I even care to go back.

Lori W. said...

I like reading the comments on your blog, too. Way too much time "dicking around on the internet." WTF happened to my writing stride?! Back to work.

Lisa Gail Green said...

OK WTF is up with the Fail Whale on Twitter? He's making more appearances than Robert Pattinson

Little Ms J said...

1. WTF is up with people who don't comment on my blog? I require a lot of attention and have severe abandonment issues. Being the illegitimate fourth Roecker is already difficult as it is....

2. WTF happened to US and People? Who are these wrinkle-free little thespians and lesbians and shellacked boys?

3. WTF went wrong with Britney Spears and Mariah Carey? Is it the fat dripping from their vocal chords? I would like to start a camp to makeover Has Beens.

4. WTF or better yet, HowTF am I supposed to follow all these people on Twitter and have any idea what anyone is doing? I am overwhelmed, yet I don't want to be rude and not follow a follower.

5. WTF.

Rhonda said...

Wow. I suddenly feel much better about my own hairstyle (or lack thereof). :)

My WTF this Wednesday?

WTF is up with Mother Nature?!? I enjoy a nice storm as much as the next person but non-stop severe thunderstorms, tornado warnings, etc. for days on end is too just too much!!!

Seriously Mother Nature, WTF?

deb said...

LOL on #2....!!! Yeah, what is up with that? I am about to head out into "refresh your email" land. I swear it's the debil makes me do these things.

heh, get it? deb...debil...

Okay...WTF is up with deb's lame jokes.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

It is Monday, so I will tell you about last Wednesday's WTFery.

Last Wednesday I went out and drank a series of dirty Shirley Temples, something called a roofie, a couple of WTF-Free-Shots-from-the-bartender, and a shot with a name I will shorten to BJ. All in front of a hottie bartender. And then the bartender ate some of my Wet Cake (yeah, with my spoon, the cheeky thing), and I said to him: Are you eating my wetness?

Consider that my Wednesday WTF moment. Crap. Some things you just can't take back...such as this comment. Crap.
