Plot for new Chick-lit novel, where main character holds the fate of the world in her disaster prone hands. The following is a list of:
Seven things that Calamity Dan MUST NOT do or the world as we know it will come to a crashing end.
1) Calamity Dan MUST NOT go 7 days without buying (or ordering) a book.
2) Calamity Dan must regularly consume Chocolate AND Coffee (or Diet Pepsi).
3) Calamity Dan must not get more than six hours of sleep in a row.
4) She must NOT count number of steps taken in vain attempt at physical fitness.
5) She must NOT wear heels
6) She MUST NOT date.
7) Calamity Dan MUST NOT fall in love.
Now for the explanations. #1- I was recently given a gift card to BAM for my Birthday and after spending a considerable time wandering the shelves left- without buying a thing (which I have been informed on previous occasions is one of the signs of the coming apocolypse). #2- Must have Iced Mocha- :o). #3 that's why I have a cat- that's her job- to wake me up sending the mental message "you must feed the cat-you must feed the cat". #4 Okay, so actually this whole thing started as an attempt to find a reason for my seeming inability to retain possession of exercise pedometers (My record for losses is two in a 23 hour period-I cannot explain). My walking partner suggested pedometer fairies who keep stealing them so I can't find out how many steps I've taken :o). #5 Actually I dont, mostly because I have wonky ankles, they work fine for weeks and weeks and then one day I turn my ankle (I've not only had my ankles turn while wearing flat shoes or even sneakers, I've had the bloody things turn while I was standing still- very frustrating- I'm not usually that much of a klutz). 6 & 7 were just thrown in- but if I actually write the story- I'll probably keep them.
I have to go now. The cat is sending me mental messages again (you must take a nap- you must take a nap :o) ).
P.S. I found the pedometers, they had both fallen onto the floor of my car- one was under the clutch and the other almost under the seat. Sigh.
