Okay, so as you all know I work at a bookstore. And when you work someplace like that you encounter people. All kinds of people. Often, people who don't think before they speak or, bless their hearts, are just plain dumb like a sack of hammers.

We had that kind in the bookstore this past weekend.

When you first enter the store, there's a glass counter set up that showcases reading devices. Now, these devices are always hooked up so that customers can try them out. Because, you know, if you're going to spend $100 or more you want to see how it works. 

These devices are also security alarmed. Because, yeah, they're by the front door and we're not dumb. We know very well that some people are shitheads and will steal.

Okay, so on Saturday, the alarm went off for one of these devices. And it's loud. Really loud. One of my fabulous co-workers rushed to the front to discover a very "special" customer (see entitled and dumb) had tried to unplug the device so she could . . . wait for it . . . charge her cell phone.

When approached, the special snowflake didn't apologize. Oh no, she got snotty and gave attitude.

So, I declare the special snowflake officially wins the Dumbass of the Weekend Award. Woo hoo!!!!

Dear Future Self,

As I sit here, half asleep on a Tuesday evening, I really and truly hope you are writing. Yeah, I know 2016 was way hard, hell I'm living it, but it's time to move on now. Really.

I'm almost 62k into Entangled and, I know, by the time you've read this note, that particular book is finished. Yay! Hopefully, you'll be laughing and writing down the list of all the other finished books. I have a ton of ideas in my laptop and in my head so I'm crossing my fingers and imagining them all finished and huge best sellers.

In fact, it would be even nicer if you could be reading this from the incredible vacation chalet we own. *snort* NOT! Not even if I had a blue million dollars would I own vacation property. It's so much easier to rent, enjoy and move on. I'm so hoping you still believe this too.

Anyway, writing. Yes, it's been a struggle, but I'm hoping you are finding it less so. I have a huge stack of ideas I need to get to, so I'm hoping, as time went on, the whole writing process got a lot easier. Hell, it couldn't be harder, that's for sure. *knock on wood* 

Oh, and, I also hope you didn't do something dumb like fall down, hit your head, and get married. Blah! I've already told certain friends that if I even acted as if marriage was a good idea they were to knock me out and lock me up until I came to my senses. Let's hope they remembered that. 

Unless, he looks like this

Than it might be worth it. Oh baby!! So, if I'm married to him then go you!!

Keep writing!! hugs and kisses, Gwen

Now run and check out the notes the other bloggers wrote to their future selves.
