I just saw coverage of Jay Carney's first news briefing of 2014. I think he was talking about Hamid Karzai, but I'm not sure. I got distracted by his adorable new beard.

Thank you, USA Today, for being on top of this story.

Teaser Tuesday

Here's how to play this meme.

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

From The Last Word by Lisa Lutz, page 104.

She looks as she always does, as if someone just murdered her cat and she was contemplating modes of revenge. Sure, she's my grandma, but I'll go to the mat against anyone who thought they had a worse grandmother. Unless your grandmother was a serial killer. Then you win.
