So, Like, Where IS Everybody?

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

I know I’ve been in and out quite a bit lately, but it’s gotten awfully quiet in here.

What’s everybody up to?

If you’ll notice, I’ve added to yon word count meter over on the side there. (Yay!) Let’s just say the end is a bit closer in sight now. (Why did I do something silly like leave the big secks scene to write last?? Yeesh…)

Tomorrow night’s kinda shot because there’s a work party in the evening. And then Thursday night it’s an early birthday celebration (Whee!).

Not to mention, of course, on Thursday I shall also be picking up my brand spankin’ new ve-hickle! Yee-haw! (I know, I know. Finally!)

So hopefully by sometime this weekend this sucker will be finito.

Jeebus. It had better well be, or I might be driven to run down the street, screaming and poking out my eyeballs with dull pencils.

Keep your fingers crossed that *that* doesn’t happen, ok?

Later, gators!

‘Meme’ Me Up, Scotty

Monday, April 28th, 2008

(I know, I know. Horrid. But that’s what you get when Kris has a headache. :P )

So it’s Memememe time in Krisworld once again (see note above). This is another “Get to know you” type thing, so please play along! I’ve gone with a Naughty theme for these questions (are you surprised??). Post your answers in comments!

  1. If you were to become a prostitute, how much money would you expect to charge per hour?
  2. Of all the people you know, who would be the easiest to seduce?
  3. If you could pair up any two single people you know, who would you put together?
  4. If you had to have one, whose autograph would you have tattooed on your body?

My answers below the cut…

Conspiracy Theories

Friday, April 25th, 2008

Still no car.

Delivery is now purportedly Tuesday.

I will believe this when I have the key in the ignition and am driving away from the dealership.

The hawt sales guy owes me for this delay. I mean it.

Saturday night I continue work on Lovely. The end is in sight. But for now, I go to bed to read.

A Test And A Laugh

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

Following instructions discovered over at Doug’s place, I am attempting to once again embed a YouTube video.


Besides…all the world needs is Weird Al and Donny Osmond collaborating… (If you don’t laugh at Osmond’s antics, then there’s definitely something wrong wit choo.)

Gettin’ The Low-Down

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

So. Here’s the scoop:

I have made my selection, signed my John Hancock on the dotted line, and paid some of my hard-earned moolah.

But I still have no car.

Problem is, my choice is so popular, they apparently can’t keep ‘em on the lot. The day I called to make an appointment to come in and sign the papers, the one the dealership had on the lot was sold. Then the other one they were going to bring in as a dealer trade from another dealership nearby was sold. So now there’s a hunt on for another one.

Which means that instead of picking my car up tomorrow as planned, it now may be Monday.

*sigh*

Nothing like making things complicated, huh?

That’s okay, though. They owe me a car. Everything’s already arranged, so they just need to find one and get it to me. That’s all I ask for. That’s not too much, is it?

ps. No, I’m not telling you what it is. You get to wait until I can have a picture taken with it so I can post it on the blog. Then you’ll get the 411. Needless to say, I’m excited. I really, really like it so far. (Of course, talk to me after a few weeks to see if I’ve changed my mind… :)

It Just Doesn’t Add Up…

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

One crazy-busy day at the J.O.B.

+ One big ol’ headache

+ Ten little niggly, problematic things

= One poor li’l tired ol’ pigeon.

I’m going to bed. Wake me next week.

Oh, wait. I can’t do that. :P Bugger.

That Proverbial Little Engine

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

The honest truth — Lovely is not finished.

The word count is continuing to rise, albeit at my lightning-slow pace, but we haven’t quite gotten to “The End” yet.

There is good news, though — tonight I figured out a way to tie up a thread, so that was very helpful.

Unless something extremely dramatic happens, I think it is fairly safe to say that those two magic words will be posted on this blog in the next few days. So stay tuned.

Also, it seems car shopping on the weekend was pretty successful! I don’t have new wheels in my possession quite yet, but you’ll be certain to read about it here when it does happen! (Believe me, I will be SO glad when the paperwork’s all done and the automotive stress can be gone! Then I can move on to income taxes. Whee! :P )

Anyway. I’ve contributed to the story tonight, and now it’s time for bed. That’s all I’ve got to say, folks. Catch you on the flip side!

I Love The Smell Of Laundry In The Afternoon

Friday, April 18th, 2008

Not mere moments ago, I brought in the season’s first batch of line-dried laundry.

I know, call me crazy, but it’s the nicest feeling and one of the best scents in the world.

And if nothing else, it’s a definite sign of spring! (It also helps that it’s +23 C [73F!!] out there right now! Woot!)

Thursday Night Word Count: 444

Friday, April 18th, 2008

Yeah, I know. Essentially half of Wednesday night’s count. But I wasn’t feeling so great last night, which was distracting. So when you take that into effect, I actually did okay.

Today and tomorrow are going to be interesting, though.

Writing plus a gazillion other things to worry about/deal with/plan… Yeesh. I wonder how many things would be on my To-Do list if I were to write them all down…?

The thought’s too frightening to contemplate.

Anybody seen my muse lately, though…? I could use the little snot’s help. :P

Wednesday Night Word Count: 894

Thursday, April 17th, 2008

Okay…so not fantastic, but not horrible, either.

I had a couple of good…ahem…spurts of creativity in there, which helped. I have one 500-word scene to finish, plus a good chunk of one chapter to complete, and then I’m pretty much done!

Keep sending those hardworking thoughts for me, gang! Gracias!
