My book is a mistake

Really. It is. I was surfing Amazon one day, looking at books when I stumbled on one called:

Jessica’s Guide for Dating on the Dark Side

Except, that’s not what I saw. For several seconds, I thought it said:

Jessica’s Guide for Dating on the Dork Side

And I was kind of disappointed that it wasn’t called that (although it looks like a fun book). But I couldn’t get the notion of dating on the dork side out of my head. I wondered: How would someone end up dating on the dork side.

Insert light bulb moment here.

So, my work in progress (progress being one of those relative terms) is all due to a mistake. And because I’m all about preparation, I’ve put together the all important playlist. Sure, I could spend my time doing character interviews and storyboards. Or I could mess around for a couple of hours on iTunes. Priorities, people. Priorities.

Dating on the Dork Side

  1. War by Bruce Springsteen
  2. Lysistrata by Utopia

  5. Stupid Boy by Gear Daddies
  6. She's so High by Tal Bachman
  7. So What by P!nk
  8. Famous Last Words by My Chemical Romance
  9. Read My Mind by The Killers
  10. Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol
  11. Heroes by The Wallflowers

"Messing around on ITunes" = research. Right?

Chasing Cars would be on my playlist, too, if I did these.

I've got a lot of Elvis Costello on the brain.

Okay... I've only heard of one person on your playlist (that would be The Boss, of course). I am so old.

Still, I LOVE YOUR TITLE. Just saying.

I would add Short People by Randy Newman.

I agree... iTunes definitely equals research. Those are all great songs. This made me laugh so hard, I would LOVE to date on the dork side! As a matter of fact... that's what I call my DH, my Darling Dork it's even programmed into my cell-phone that way.

I'm just so tickled by your title!
