I have no idea what other writers do to get up and running on Mondays...read the New Yorker, perhaps; after which they spend fourteen or fifteen hours crafting thoughtful prose on things like transforming culture, the importance of aligning our emotional energy, or how if more people were on The Zone diet, we'd be one step closer to world peace.
Me? I just ate lunch in front of the TV, and now I'm captivated by the latest season of the Real World/Road Rules challenge. They just sent veterans Coral and Beth to the gauntlet!!! If the publishing world sponsored a match like this, it would be Jane Austen v. Virginia Woolf. Or perhaps Edith Warton v. Sylvia Path.
What famous person would you take to the gauntlet to take their position on the bookshelf/iTunes Store/movie theater?
I'd take on Jennifer Garner. I don't need her movie career, but I'd wrestle her to the ground in a heartbeat for the seats she and Ben have right next to the the Red Sox dugout :)
