Quote du Jour:
Losing gracefully is commended but never chosen.
WOW.. what a despicable game last night. Canâ€™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 didnâ€™t have to witness the complete horror.
I think I have a crush on Bill Guerin. Heâ€™s kind of a hottie. Or maybe Iâ€™m just a walking hormone. Who knows.
In other newsâ€¦ 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 didnâ€™t type fast before. Still, thereâ€™s something about this keyboard that makes my fingers fly. I guess because itâ€™s ergonomic? Who knows. Iâ€™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, doesnâ€™t she?
Got to the office this morning to find Troll already here. At 7:30 am even. Wow! He was like, â€œYouâ€™re here early.â€ And Iâ€™m wanting to say, â€œNo, dudeâ€¦ YOUâ€™RE here early. Iâ€™m always here this early.â€ 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 todayâ€¦ it was yum).
I finally wrote an entire scene yesterday. WA-HOO. Itâ€™s part of chapter three in my club. I guess Iâ€™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 reallyâ€¦but at least do some serious smooching).
Anyway, hope to get that chapter three finished. Iâ€™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 havenâ€™t decided if Iâ€™m going to do NaNoWriMo this year. Probably not since Iâ€™ve already got a work in progress and I donâ€™t want to stop writing it to do another new project. I sure would like to have a t-shirt anyway, thoughâ€¦
Good luck to all those doing NaNo this year, though!
Tag, Iâ€™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.
Hereâ€™s my 23rd post on April 25, 2005, 11:18 pm: Lost Muse
Fifth sentence: I thought Iâ€™d try to relax a little by downing two martinis.
HA. I really donâ€™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 heâ€™s home, Iâ€™d rather he be here than there. Now, wasnâ€™t that all mushy? And as for the title of the post – Apparently, I was going through another non-writing phase. Figures.
