i really need a little space heater in my office. one could lose one’s appendages by knocking them on something – they’d just shatter into a million pieces. not to mention it’s hard to type with gloves on.

bet you’re wondering what’s new, huh? all 3 of you.
school starts monday – online health class & yoga 2 nights a week.
sending out queries like crazy, trying to build up some freelance work. i want to build up a side biz so it’ll be easier to transition when we eventually move. and earn some extra money. maybe something will kick in soon – probably right when school gets busy so i’ll be tearing my hair out. whee! remember, if any of you need a copywriter (proposals, reports, promos, ads, procedures, policies, letters, etc.), my rates are reasonable. and my business writing is nothing like the stream of consciousness stuff i do here. i’m much better at business writing and even better than that at rewriting/ editing. that’s where my niche will be, i’m sure. i don’t think i’ll ever be much of a novel writer. at least, not fiction.
i watched “while you were sleeping” tonight. saw part of it on tv the other morning before work so i just ‘had’ to see the whole thing. i really love sandra bullock & bill pullman in that movie. it’s at the top of the list for my favorite romantic movies, alongside moonstruck, don juan demarco, return to me, notting hill, like water for chocolate, and when harry met sally. those are all movies i’ve seen multiple times. i think i’m forgetting one or two.
i’ll have to go through our movies and list the best romantic movies to watch over & over. what are your contenders?
this weekend, i was FORCED to buy new jeans – because my old ones were all falling off. it’s been long enough that i’m not yo-yoing, so i gave myself permission to buy new ones. the old ones are folded and put away.
the new ones are two sizes smaller than they were a year ago. two sizes. wheeeeeee!
i could try & be funny about it, but the truth is, sloppy html coding gives me a headache.
i missed the funny gene in my family and it’s all my mom’s fault. because everyone else has it. so it must be her fault.
i blame her.
and god said,
we’ll miss him.
i put a few more photos in the la jolla gallery and fixed the ones where the sky looked striped (too much compression). i also finally loaded a few pics from palm springs – it’s been sitting empty for a while.
i still have some more la jolla pics to go, but the day just didn’t turn out the way i wanted. everything looked blah. while it’s beautiful there, it’s pretty bland as far as the type of pictures i like to take. i think i prefer downtown.
oh, i do have some more downtown photos to work up, too, from the first day i got my camera. i may just add those to the front of the downtown album.
here’s the weather for about the past month or so:
cold, cold, rain.
rain, rain, rain, rain, cold. rain.
cold, rain, clear.
add to that the fact that one side of our office is warm and the other is freeze-off-your-extraneous-body-parts cold, and i don’t know how the hell i’m supposed to dress in the mornings.
and now i’m sick. j was sick, and i thought i had gotten by with just a mild case. until monday when it hit me like a big ole safe dropped on a cartoon character. i hurt. my head feels like it’s huge, bloated and ready to burst any moment. i’m tempted to add a drain plug to get rid of the mucus. i can’t pop my ears. the pressure is killing me. i ache. i’m tired. i walk around like a zombie. but i have tons of work to do, so i just try to avoid everyone i can so i don’t spread my disease more than i have to.
hmmm, anyone you want me to take out for you? one cough and they’re history. }->
so that’s all for now. i think. but i’m probably forgetting something, thanks to the medicine. makes me antsy, but at least it gets the junk out of my lungs. mmmmm.
we have a three day weekend. needed desperately.
i expect to spend quality time with my notebook, trying to do some writing and maybe even composing some queries or writing something – anything – on spec. i need to exercise those creative muscles.
did i mention that i need an extra day off?
i’ll keep my camera in my hand. constantly. i might even read the manual to figure out those mystifying other settings. you know, the ones besides “auto.”
hair appt in the morning at 8. my hairdresser is going to love showing up an hour earlier than normal. hee.
clean house? laundry? what’s that?
*praying desperately for lots of sunshine*
