Quickies

I can't decide between two works-in-progress, so consequently, I've been working on both and finding that unsatisfactory.

I give Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist a six on the 1-10 scale. Too much stuff going on inside the characters' heads and not enough actually happening for my taste. Also, Nick and Norah's voices were clever, but maybe just a little too clever. I believe "cloying" is the word I want.

I loved Under the Dome.

I'm taking the Colts.

Anita let me look at her baby. I enjoyed it.

Know what's good? Cheese and meat mixed together.

I agree with this. You should too.

Speaking of the works-in-progress, anyone want to read twenty or thirty pages and tell me which one you like better? Instead of making a decision myself, I'll let you all make it for me.

Colts. Yes.

Anita said...

ALL: PMM's comments on my manuscript were hilarious...people in the house were actually wondering why I was laughing so much.

Monica said...

I'll read pages, dude. you know i like that sort of thing. Also, its a good excuse not to do any writing of my own.

Tina Laurel Lee said...

Can't read right now. Sorry. (Assuming you even meant me!)

I like Nick and Nora's a lot. Go figure. I think it had to do with liking Nick a lot. And liking that they had different comments about the same things.

I agree with Sean on almost everything except that I know for a fact if you practice hitting someone over and over you do get better at it parents around watching the same thing or not.

Way to pass off the decision making. I like that.

Oops, spelled Shaun wrong.

Paul Michael Murphy said...

That's okay. I don't think he lurks here.

Anita said...

Oh, and, yes, of course I'll read your pages.

Paul Michael Murphy said...

Colts. No.

And I thought the commercials kind of stunk.

Jonathon Arntson said...

Who are th Colts or the Ponies or whoever you keep talking about. Okay, kidding, I'm not that gay.

Shaun's blog rocks, you persuaded me to agree with you wonderful argument.

You know what? [insert Tina's comment here] well, not the second one.

Oh, poor Peyton.
Ah well, it was inspiring to see the Saints win.

I'll read 30 pages for you, if you'll read 30 for me.

Paul Michael Murphy said...

Fair trade, Lily Cate.

What did you think about the Doritos commercial with the Doritos samurai?


Also, I'll read 10 pages of each if you like.

Paul Michael Murphy said...

Must have missed the samurai one. I thought the other Doritos commercials were lame, though. My favorite one of the night was the one where Betty White gets tackled and then told she's playing like Betty White. I think it was a Snickers ad.

I'll send pages out in a couple of days to those that offered. Thanks!

chris said...

Oh, my brother was in the Samurai one. It aired right after the interception. I think it was the funniest, and I don't think I'm being biased.

Paul Michael Murphy said...

I watched it online. It was the best of the Doritos ads. Which guy was your bro?

chris said...

The guy who looks like Wally Szcerbiak and takes the doritos ninja star to the neck.
