Stars Stink Up Ice

Quote du Jour:
Losing gracefully is commended but never chosen.
–Mason Cooley

WOW.. what a despicable game last night. Can’t believe the Stars got their butts kicked so bad by the Kings. What happened to our Marty Turco? He was definitely having an off night. Poor guy. Thankfully, I fell asleep toward the end of the game to I didn’t have to witness the complete horror.

I think I have a crush on Bill Guerin. He’s kind of a hottie. Or maybe I’m just a walking hormone. Who knows.

In other news… I got an ergonomic keyboard at work. And you know, I kind of like it. I type like way fast on it. Not that I didn’t type fast before. Still, there’s something about this keyboard that makes my fingers fly. I guess because it’s ergonomic? Who knows. I’m lobbying for a flat screen monitor, but it looks like my chances are slim to none on that one. Hey, a girl has to try, doesn’t she?

Got to the office this morning to find Troll already here. At 7:30 am even. Wow! He was like, “You’re here early.” And I’m wanting to say, “No, dude… YOU’RE here early. I’m always here this early.” Like, duh. Who does he think makes the coffee? (Moi.) Anyway, I just gave him a sweet lil smile, nodded, and continued drinking my Starbucks (I got the Pumpkin Spice Latte today… it was yum).

Writing News
I finally wrote an entire scene yesterday. WA-HOO. It’s part of chapter three in my club. I guess I’m going to go with Legal Limit since that seems to fit. Next I need to decide atmosphere, music, yadda yadda. Definitely dark and smoky so they can get it on in the corner (well, not really…but at least do some serious smooching).

Anyway, hope to get that chapter three finished. I’m setting myself a goal of a chapter a week. That should get me back into the writing gear. And then once I get going on it, I can start writing my chapter a day again.

Still haven’t decided if I’m going to do NaNoWriMo this year. Probably not since I’ve already got a work in progress and I don’t want to stop writing it to do another new project. I sure would like to have a t-shirt anyway, though…

Good luck to all those doing NaNo this year, though!

Tag, I’m It
Tagged by Debra, I’m taking up the challenge:

1. Delve into your blog archives.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions. Ponder it for meaning, subtext or hidden agendas.
5. Tag five people to do the show.

Here’s my 23rd post on April 25, 2005, 11:18 pm: Lost Muse

Fifth sentence: I thought I’d try to relax a little by downing two martinis.

HA. I really don’t drink that often so when I saw this sentence, it totally cracked me up. I was lamenting the fact that I was alone all the time. This would be during the time Husband spent three-four months solid in Baltimore, leaving me to single-mom it. Although he drives me crazy when he’s home, I’d rather he be here than there. Now, wasn’t that all mushy? And as for the title of the post – Apparently, I was going through another non-writing phase. Figures.

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
