Writing Can Be Murder

Never judge a book

My pal Laura wrote this to me yesterday, “You are an astute seeker
and finder of t-shirt & bumper sticker wisdom everywhere!”
which sounds like a weird fortune cookie message, but she’s right. I read every t-shirt and bumper sticker that crosses my path and I pass the best of the crop onto her.

I’m sharing yesterday’s find with you:

Never judge a book by its movie



  1. Clever. I saw this bumper sticker a while back and it’s stayed with me:
    *Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.*

    Except everything tastes good with ketchup, so that part’s not really news.

  2. LOL. I love wise t-shirts. I’ve often thought, if I ever ran an office [don’t want to, but if I ever did] I’d have t-shirt day once a month where everyone would have to come in with their favorite [non-obscene] saying on their t-shirt.

    I want: Watch out or I’ll put you in my novel.

    My husband’s new favorite [found at Wal*Mart] is: Genius by birth, slacker by choice.

    And my favorite one I bought a few years back for my father: What’s the speed of dark?

  3. In one of my favorite books of all time, Texasville by Larry McMurtry, the main character’s wife wore a shirt with a different saying every day. She had attitude. I love that book!

  4. Kate — I’ve seen that one and it’s made me chuckle BUT I hate ketchup, hate it, hate it, hate it — If a dragon ever eats me I’m hoping it’ll be with a side of capers!

    B– Love the one you got for your dad

    Cyndi — LOVE that as a character quirk!

  5. My current favorite bumper sticker: SLOWER MINDS, KEEP RIGHT

    I also love Jen’s idea for the name of a coffee shop: BREWTOPIA (if you open a coffee shop and gives it that name, you owe Jen for cribbing her idea…)
