Remember back in February when I was taking bets on which would arrive first, a response from the literary agent who requested my manuscript or my K-mart bowls?

The answer is……..

Still neither.

My mom donated a pack of eight white bowls she got on sale for $7.50, and “my” agent, according to Twitter, has been busy reading the entire Hunger Games series and attending Laruen Conrad’s book readings. (She is one of the agency’s clients).

“Do you think Lauren Conrad is sleeping with him?” I asked Doug.

“No,” Doug said. “I don’t think that the star of MTV’s hit reality series The Hills has to sleep with an agent to get a book deal.”

“Dammit, that’s true,” I said. Of course. “Who do you think I have to sleep with?”
