Freaky Fug Friday: Jessie J

I don’t even know what is happening here, but I suspect I endorse it:

I THINK her tee-shirt reads, “I am a primadonna. And you?” Personally, I like to think of myself as a pre-Madonna. (I don’t even know what that means, you guys. I’m sorry.)

THE TASK:  Rewrite the slogan on her tee shirt to explain what’s happening here, please.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on MONDAY.

THE PRIZE: We are thrilled to be giving away 3 AUTOGRAPHED copies of J. Courtney Sullivan’s new book, The Engagements. I devoured this book over Memorial Day weekend — it would be accurate to say that I could not put it down — and I feel confident in saying that you’re going to really enjoy it. It’s basically the ideal summer read. Per Amazon:

“From the New York Times best-selling author of Commencement and Maine comes a gorgeous, sprawling novel about marriage—about those who marry in a white heat of passion, those who marry for partnership and comfort, and those who live together, love each other, and have absolutely no intention of ruining it all with a wedding.

Evelyn has been married to her husband for forty years—forty years since he slipped off her first wedding ring and put his own in its place. Delphine has seen both sides of love—the ecstatic, glorious highs of seduction, and the bitter, spiteful fury that descends when it’s over. James, a paramedic who works the night shift, knows his wife’s family thinks she could have done better; while Kate, partnered with Dan for a decade, has seen every kind of wedding—beach weddings, backyard weddings, castle weddings—and has vowed never, ever, to have one of her own.

As these lives and marriages unfold in surprising ways, we meet Frances Gerety, a young advertising copywriter in 1947. Frances is working on the De Beers campaign and she needs a signature line, so, one night before bed, she scribbles a phrase on a scrap of paper: “A Diamond Is Forever.” And that line changes everything.

A rich, layered, exhilarating novel spanning nearly a hundred years, The Engagements captures four wholly unique marriages, while tracing the story of diamonds in America, and the way—for better or for worse—these glittering stones have come to symbolize our deepest hopes for everlasting love.”

A diamond is forever, but not as forever as the JOY that comes from winning Freak Fug Friday. So get writing! Open to US and Canada only.

    I had a coworker send me (and others) an email suggesting that someone was being a “pre-Madonna”. Oh how we laughed! Was she saying the person grew up in the before-Madonna years? Is too old to know the joys of wearing your underclothes as outerclothes?

    I’m dreadful at contests, but wanted to say how much I am enjoying “The Engagements”–I have about 10 pages to go, and it’s been an, er, engaging book that’s a great beach read with some decent substance. I love the character of Frances!
