I Ain’t Got What You Want

Monday, October 31st, 2005

No wit, wisdom or ‘WTF’ moments from me today. (Well, maybe in my real life…)

Sorry. You’ll have to go elsewhere for your semi-daily dose of wacky.

I have a project due tomorrow and I’m not even close to finishing it. Any howling noises you may hear throughout the wee sma’s would be mine.

It helps me so much that I’m so tired I’m practically hallucinating (not quite, but damn, does it feel like it). Let’s hope I can read what I typed tomorrow.

Julie has tagged me with a funky new meme — sadly, I won’t get to it until likely Tuesday at the earliest. But when I do, I’ll be certain to post it here. And you can all start shaking in your shoes — I’ll be tagging some people afterward, too.

All righty. Break’s over. Bring on the coffee. If you don’t see me by Tuesday, send out the Mounties. (Preferrably the hot ones. I have my standards, you know.) Some cops would be good, too… and a firefighter or three… oh, and don’t forget the EMTs… :)

(I’m not quitting while I’m ahead, either…)

Go on, shoo. You’ll probably have more fun tonight reading blogs that exhort penile enhancement. In fact, I know you will. I dare you.

Another Internet Star is Born…

Crap on a cracker, this is hilarious. I can’ t stop grinning at this. Thanks muchly to X for bringing this to everyone’s attention. I’m now doing my Web duty and forwarding it on to everyone I know.

Aren’t you all lucky???

So click, laugh, dance along. You’ll be glad you did.

And if you hate it, you can come back here and throw wet noodles at me.

Funny how one little thing can turn a ‘meh’ kind of day into a better one…

Thanks, X-ie! *smooch*

Just Like Ma Used to Make

Friday, October 28th, 2005

Nothing would please me more at the moment than laying my head down on my desk, elementary-school style, and enjoying the feel of cool pressboard against my cheek. How is it possible to be this freaking tired??

On the plus side, I’ve managed to scratch a couple things off my ever-growing ‘to-do’ list. Not that that helps, of course.

I’ve got one big thing pressing before the end of the month, and then some smaller items, but maaaaaan… where does the time go?

I have this dream, y’see…to be witty and clever and charming on this blog, but by the time I sit down at the computer, my writing skills seem to have flown out the window. (this is my shower problem, addressed earlier in the life of this Blog — I always think of good stuff to write while in the shower…with no way to write it down.)

One of these days I’m going to come up with something good for all of you to read.

Note to self: Oh, yes. Good. Tease the poor readers with promises of mind-altering, earth-shattering content just to keep them coming back. Let’s see how long this lasts.

I don’t know if I’m ready for NaNoWriMo. I’ve had no time to make notes or work on an outline, and let me tell you, the mere idea of flying without a net gives me the willies.

Note to self, redux: Forget the idea of watching a movie Saturday night. You need to make NaNo notes so the attempt isn’t completely FUBAR.

Y’know, someday I want to post something that feels coherent and intelligent. But until that time comes, I’m going to bed. I wish I could stay there.

DON’T FORGET THE CONTEST!! Time is running out and your odds are great!!!

She Shoots, She Scores!

My naughty grocery list scored me a 14/15.

Not too shabby. No comments on the content, though, dammit.

That is all. (for now)

SotiredI’mgoingtofallflatonmyfaceanyminutenow… *sigh*

Enter, Dammit!

Wednesday, October 26th, 2005

Please.

Please, please, please. Enter the damned contest.

Trust me when I say that your odds right now are better than excellent. And it’s easy to get the answers — just Google everything! :)

In other news, the Kid cut a small chunk of her hair with my manicure scissors. I guess that’s another childhood milestone we’ve passed.

Do you ever have those weeks where you’ve got so bloody much to do you don’t even know where to start? I think I’m going to go curl up in my bed with a book and just say ‘to hell with it all’ for tonight.

Scarlett was right — tomorrow is another #$%%&^* day.

I Despise Chain Letters More Than Brussels Sprouts

Tuesday, October 25th, 2005

Find a man who…
calls you beautiful instead of hot
calls you back when you hang up on him
will stay awake just to watch you sleep.

Wait for the man who…
kisses your forehead
wants to show you off to the world when you are in your sweats
holds your hand in front of his friends.

Wait for the one who…
is constantly reminding you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you
turns to his friends and says, “…that’s her.”

If you open this you must repost it, guy or girl, or you will have bad luck for the rest of your life!
Send this message back to me. Copy and send this to your whole list. In 5 minutess your true love will call or message you.

You have just been DEATHWISHED. Tonight at midnight your true love will realize he or she likes you. Something good will happen to you at approximately 1:42 pm tomorrow, it could be anywhere. So get ready for the biggest shock of your life. If you break this chain, you will be cursed with relationship problems for the most important time of your life.

Send this to 15 people in 15 minutes to carry on the chain…and spare yourself the emotional stress. Copy and paste, rather than just clicking ‘forward’.

******
If you read this, you must forward the letter. Heh. How d’you like that, Mr. Doubting Mustafa?

Here She Goes Again

These things are like effing crack to me.
(And this makes me sound much too respectable…)

Your Birthdate: May 8

Born on the 8th day of the month, you have a special gift for business, as you can conceive and plan on a grand scale.
You have good executive skills and you’re a good judge of values.
You should try to own your own business, because you have such a strong desire to be in control.

You are generally reliable when it comes to handling money; you can be trusted in this regard.
Idealistic by nature, you are never too busy to spend some time on worthwhile causes, especially if managerial support are needed.
There is much potential for material success associated with this number.

What Does Your Birth Date Mean?

OMG. I feel like all I’ve done this weekend is eat. Pretty soon my ass is going to have it’s own postal code.

*disheartened sigh*

I have *got* to get back into a workout routine. I fell off the wagon at the end of the summer, and my wardrobe is reminding me of that fact.

Anyway. I’m not going to whine annoyingly here. (At least, I’ll try not to.)

On the news front — I think I’ve decided which story to go with for eHarlequin’s NaNoWriMo. It’s a futuristic story with villains and good guys and weird powers and lots of sex. I had a brain explosion earlier tonight, and I came up with an amazing scene to work in — it might even end up being a chapter’s worth of stuff, so that’s very good.

Interestingly enough, I got the idea for this story from a dream I had years ago. I’d written the dream down in an old journal, and I found the journal while I was packing to move out of my last place. I read the entry and thought, “Hot damn. If I add a sexual element to this, it would make a *great* erotic story.” And here we is.

I haven’t had any really good dreams lately — at least, not ones worthy of transcribing. I would *love* to be able to lucid dream. Can any of you out there do that? I’ve done some reading on it and it sounds amazing. You need to practice, though, and my life is just too nuts right now to start playing with my sleep patterns.

All right. I’ve babbled on enough. I’ve got to look at my calendar and plan out my week. Suddenly it looks like there’re too bloody many things to do between now and Friday…

ps. Don’t forget my CONTEST! What do I have to do to get you people to enter?? I’ll give you a hint: ALL THE QUOTES ARE GOOGLE-ABLE. The answers are EASY to find. Trust me! Why would I make you work hard to win a prize??

Did-See TV!

Saturday, October 22nd, 2005

Okay, for those of you who were nice enough to watch the TRUE CRIME episode, you’re awesome!

You’re probably wondering which character was played by my friend Teige Reid. Well, I didn’t withhold info from you on purpose — I didn’t know exactly who he was playing, either.

He was the other murder suspect, Richard Eberling — he appeared mostly in the second half of the show. It was too cool… And it’s disconcerting, really, to see someone you know spattered in blood — even when you know the blood is fake… *ugh*

I’m so pumped for him — it was definitely great! If you missed it, keep checking for re-runs. I’m sure it’ll be on again at some point in time.

The weekend’s gonna fly — I’ve got so much to do — but I’ll try and pop in to chat when I can.

Ciao!

So, clearly, I am insane. Certifiable, even.

Why, you ask? Because I’ve decided to participate in a NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) event that’s being hosted by eHarlequin. The name of the game is this — start writing a brand-spankin’ new book November first, and don’t stop until November 30th. Ideally, the goal is 50K words — 1600+ words a day, or so. Now, I can usually write 1K words in an hour, so I should be able to do that in just over an hour + a half. In theory, I can also push it to two hours and aim for 2K words a day, too.

Man, I’m tired just thinking about it. And I’m still trying to decide just which story idea to go ahead with. (You’re not supposed to work on a story that you’ve already started.) So I have to go back over my story ideas and see which one is pulling at me the hardest.

Well, I’ll keep you all posted. Perhaps by posting my goals here I can convince myself that I’m held accountable to all of you lurkers out there — and your silent butt-kicking can spur me on. *snicker*

In other news, I finished my assigned “grocery” list for class and handed it in last night. I’ll let you know what my grade is on it. Oh, and I did go with the ‘items-for-seduction’ list, not Donna’s snortingly-funny suggestion. I’ll have to go to you sooner next time, Donna… :)

Okay. I’ve got to get the kidlet to clean up her room, put her in the bath, do teeth brushing and storytime, etc., and get her off to sleep. I’ll have to ponder just what I can convince myself to accomplish this evening, other than web surfing, of course…

(Don’t forget my CONTEST! Sorry about the formatting — for some reason the comments page doesn’t format the text properly. Bugger. And if text doesn’t appear at all, just click on ’show post’.)
