Bossy Bossy Sisters

My bossy know-it-all dictator hitler sister is demanding that I force any of you who happen to swing by here to enter the contest she's having.  At first I was going to refuse (and reinforce my independence by lining her toilet seat with Saran Wrap) but after I saw the contest I decided to comply, for it is quite funny to me.  Every once in a great while my sister is struck with an uncommon stroke of wit, and today is one of those rare days. (forgive my ranting, i'm a little peeved at her because she is thinking about buying a house an hour and a half away from me… we've never been that far apart ever.  The villianous monkey has gone purely mad).


 


Anyways, I am amending her contest.  You can either do what she says, OR, write an even worse query letter than she did.  And then let me know about it because I could use a good laugh this week.  Howevery, hopefully at least one or two of you will write a real query letter because she's gonna want to use it for the class she's teaching this weekend.  If you still have no idea what i'm talking about, click here

    Thy bones are marrowless, thy blood is cold. Wherein [art thou] good, but to taste sack and drink it? Wherein neat and cleanly, but to carve a capon and eat it? Wherein cunning, but in craft? Wherein crafty but in villainy? Wherein villainous, but in all things? Wherein worthy but in nothing? If thou dost marry, I’ll give thee this plague for thy dowry.

    Ha! You two are a hoot!

    I just may have to take a run at writing a worse query letter. That letter was hilarious – but I think I could spice it up a little!

    Have a great weekend,

    Courtney

    Queries and Math

    What?? That wasn’t a REAL letter? Your sister wrote it and has us all believe that it was a real letter?? Someone doesn’t really think you spell your last name Igarashashayshay? Wow, I feel so…so….duped. I still *might* enter the contest though.

    You wouldn’t fair too well in our house. We LOVE math here. Well, with the exception of ds9 — he can’t stand it. He’s very good at it, but he doesn’t see the use in it. Then he’ll do something that requires math and dd7 will say, “Oh, wow, did you just use MATH to figure that out?!?” He gets so mad. Dd7 thinks math is right up there with…Polly Pocket. She finishes her work and asks if she can do just “one more lesson, pleeeeaaase”. Isn’t that bizarre? I never liked math when I was in school, but now I think it’s awesome. Probably because our Lord is a Lord of order and He created math.

    I gotta go write a proper query letter…about being duped.

    Jennifer :o)

    That flashing banner cracks me up every time. How long does this contest run? I may enter… working on some query letters at the moment anyway :).

    I’m going to be on homeschoolingradio.com tomorrow morning. I could faint. How did the girl who writes emails instead of talking on the phone because nothing comes out right when I SAY it end up on a telephone radio interview? Grin. I shall survive.

    Blessings,

    *gasp!* 1.5 hours away is TOO far for the Ig/Suarez familia’s.

    And as far as the contest goes, I am hoping to enter before the weekend but I must refuse as far as writing an even worse query goes. Seriously. I think it to be an impossible task. I would also hate to encourage that kind of POOR writing!

    Love,

    Marshie

    Just noticed the banner…I think that will always be funny to me!

    Ahhh…y’all are so blessed to have each other. I can only IMAGINE what it would be like if y’all were a sister to some other unsuspecting soul! hehehee…

    Love,

    LOL =o)

    Hi Jen,

    Your affectionate pokes at your sister brings a big smile to my face =o).

    Though I don’t have any sisters, I can’t help but think of my two dear daughters, they would die for each other. They know they can safely poke around with words and have a good time doing it!

    I can’t help with a query letter at this time but I’m sure Gena will find a great one that she’ll be comfortable with.

    Have a Super Day!

    Love, Cathy

    Maybe the prize should be one of the ugly puppies?

    I think she's already got a couple of good entries and, being short on time and brain cells, I'll pass. I'd rather write another goofy one anyway! lol

    Don't forget to send my sons a picture of their puppy! They spent over an hour yesterday debating what to name the thing. I suggested hell fire an' ****ation (like a true southerner might) but it was unacceptable apparently…..

    OK, Jen!

    Dear Ms. Suarez:

    I am soooo happy to make your acquaintence. I know you never met me. I never met you either. I just want to tell you that I have this idea that must get into your magazine because an angel came to my bedside and told me to write this article.

    I was minding my own business when I Thessalonians 4:11 came to my head. Do you want to know what it says? It says “to mind your own business.” I realized that I could offer an article about how to make beewax in six easy lessons.

    I found a hive full of bee. Oh! Gena, let me tell you what happened. I got stuuuung!!! I did not realize that I was going to have to deal with real bees. Heavens to Betsy! I was in the hospital for two days. I learned how using a carving knife and carve the wax around the beehive once the bees are gone.

    Well, I could share this article with you for a small reward. Please contact me quickly because thousands of publications are just dying to by this article.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a dynamic magazine. Did I mention that I was happy to make your acquaintence?

    Sincerely,

    Sandra Silly

    sisters

    I didn’t see this in time to enter your sister’s contest, but just had to say that I, too, am very peeved at my sister.

    Not only did she fall in love with a CANADIAN (LOL we’re French Canadian), and move to Toronto 6.5 years ago (we live in RI), but then this month she up and moved to TEXAS! Now instead of one day’s drive, she is like, 4 days drive away! And she’s my only sister!

    I don’t know if I’ll ever forgive her…………

    Amanda
