Sprichst du Deutsches?

Neither do I, but it looks like GOOD GIRL GONE BAD will! I’m really excited to announce GOOD GIRL has sold to a German publisher. I’ve been hoping to sell to the Rhineland. It’s a large market, and from what I understand the Germans love American cop stories. I can’t wait to see the cover. I’m hoping to see the Japanese cover soon.

Okay, so that was my little news for today.

Now, who watched Dancing? I missed Laila’s fist dance but just in the nick of time I was able to watch Apolo and Juliana do the rumba. I thought it was hot! Sizzling hot. I laughed when Bruno said they could have conceived a child right there on the dance floor it was so hot. And even though Len had his issues with it, I respect his old world style charm. Their freestyle was really a treat. I wasn’t as impressed with Joey as I normally am, and wasn’t real thrilled with Laila and Maks’ freestyle.

Can you tell I’m partial? This is how partial. I haven’t voted all season but tonight I voted on all four phone lines I have in this house, including the fax line. I didn’t go so far as to vote on my cell phone, although I would have if there had been time. As it was, it took an hour to get the allowed votes on each of the four lines they were so busy.

So, I did my job. I hope Apolo and Julianne win the competition, but I won’t be hugely disappointed if they don’t.

Now here is something to consider. With Dancing finaling tomorrow night and AI the following week, what the heck are we gonna talk about on Tuesday and Wednesdays?

Hmm, maybe I’ll think up another contest, or we could ask Officer Friendly to come back and guest host a day. But I hear he’s really, really busy these days. He may need encouragement. 😉

Oh, oh, oh,I have a question????? Now that Miss Snark is retiring, supposedly because she is vera busy and has been outed, would someone please tell me who the heck she or he is?

    My votes for Laila and Max, I love to watch her dance, but when she speaks it’s a little scary!!!
    Voice definately doesn’t match her looks. Kind of like Mike Tyson in reverse.

    As for my Tuesday’s I think I’m gonna check out the new reality show on NBC. Their looking for the best star impersonator.

    And of course Monday’s (I’m jonesen real bad) will be dedicated to Monday Night Football – OH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PACK ATTACK.


  2. Mary

    Crap I forgot did you lose it at the end when Max ripped his shirt off? lol

  3. B.E. Sanderson

    Ack. I hadn’t heard she’d been outed. Now the curiosity will eat me up.

    Congrats on getting your book published in German!

    Did I hear someone mention football?? I’m going through football DTs myself.

  4. Mary

    Amen to B.E. it’s been alongggggggggggggg off season.

  5. Amie Stuart

    I heard she just got tired of answering the same questions over and over and decided it was time to go. If she was outed, please share LOL

    Congrats on the German sale!

  6. Lee

    Congrats on the “across the pond sale”. And I want to know who Snark was too. Some say she’s retiring because 99% of the people know who she is, well I must be a member of the small minority of 1%, because I don’t have a clue…

    gutes Mädchen gegangenes Schlechtes

    Ich bin auf Deutsch unzulänglich, but that is how you would say Good Girl Gone Bad in German. I love Germany, now they will love you, too.

    Why would somebody out Miss Snark? That is terrible, while I didn’t read her I know she was highly popular with writers, especially. Fie on the person(s) who outed her.

    Dancing with the Stars…go Apolo and Julianne, they totally smoke. I wasn’t so hot on their freestyle, but I give them kudos for totally stepping up to the plate. They looked like they were having a fabulous time. There are two major differences between Juliane and Apolo and the rest of the pack. 1) Chemistry 2) Juliane’s choreography. At the age of 18 the woman in years ahead of some of the other pros in choreography.

    My second like is Joey and Kim. I really enjoyed thier freestyle – despite the fact I HATE disco.

    Laila and Maks are wonderful but the just don’t do it for me. I love Laila’s go to it, and her voice.

    I didn’t vote last night, because I think my speed dial is on its last leg and I wanted it to survive so I could vote for Jordin all night long.

    Hmmm, in our house we will watch baseball all summer long while waiting for college football to start in late August. I do watch Big Brother and Rockstar (but I don’t know if there will be a Rockstar this year, there has been no gossip so far.)

    Mar, Laila’s voice is a bit intimidating! And you know me and football. I cannot wait. Bubby went to the forty-niner mini camp a couple of weeks ago. and number two son just started spring ball, so I’m getting a little taste.

  9. Karin

    lol, and I missed Maks getting his shirt ripped off. damn!

  10. Karin

    B.E. a little birdie dropped a name re Miss Snark. Rumor has it her first name is Jane.

  11. Karin

    Thanks, Cele, Lee, Amie and B.E. I’m really happy with the German sale.

    and I can see why Miss Snark got tired of answering the same nit-wittery questions, but hey, we all have to start somewhere!

    Cele, I’m with you on the Apolo and Julianne train. That girl has a brilliant knack when it comes to dance steps. No wonder she is the Teen Queen.

    Congrats on the German sale – and the Japanese! I hear that Japan is muy lucrative. And Germany is great.

    Somebody once hinted Miss Snark wasn’t an agent and was a man. Others say she runs JetReid. There are clues – the types of books she loves and the people she hangs with, like Sarah Weinman.

    Whoever she is, I’m glad she’s leaving her archive up. Somewhere, George Clooney is smiling.

  13. stacey

    Awesome on the German sale, Karin! And Japan, too.

    I love Apollo and Julianne, Joey’s tricks were cool but the worst is his partner has always been forgettable to me.

    The shirt-ripping was a very nice treat. Almost (but not quite) as nice as when Drew Lachey showed up to guest. For me, no one can compare and his freestyle dance that won the 2nd (I think) season was AWESOME! Would love to get that on tape.

    I wished for more out of Laila and Max–oh, well. Hope Apollo and Julianne win.

  14. B.E. Sanderson

    Jane? Hmmm…

    :spider sense tingling:

    Maybe I guessed right after all. ;o)

  15. LaDonna

    YaHoo on the German sales, Karin! You’re GLOBAL! lol. And asking Officer Friendly back is great! I enjoyed reading his Q&A. Funny guy there.

  16. Hubby

    “Sprechen Sie Deutsch?” would be the proper verbage, meine Frau. And oh yeah, Ich liebe dich.

  17. Karin

    LaDonna I’ll see what I can do about that Officer Freindly guy.

    and, hubby my love? I went to google languages for the translation, so blame it on them.
    and ich liebe dich to you too. (sounds kind of painful if you ask me)

  18. Karin

    hey, stacy forgot to say , gracias.
    and yay!! Apolo and Julianne won!!!
