Quote du Jour:
When the going gets tough, the tough take a coffee break.
So, I did it. Went to the gym last night and did a 30 minute workout. Not much, but better than nothing I guess. Iâ€™m planning on going back again on Wednesday. Iâ€™m thinking that if I can do a 30 minute workout during the week and then maybe swing by there on Saturday or Sunday, that will make all the difference in the world.
I do feel better today. A little tired as I stayed up late watching Home for the Holidays with Holly Hunter and Robert Downey, Jr. Funny movie. I love that scene where sheâ€™s sitting on Dylan McDermottâ€™s lap and theyâ€™re making out. Thereâ€™s just something about that scene that is so completely romantic and sexy. Great movie. Itâ€™s the epitome of dysfunctional families at the holidays.
Got issue 113 and 114 written of Ransom & Fortune. They are edited, but for some reason Iâ€™m hanging on to them for a little while. Iâ€™m going to try to write issues 115 and 116 today. Have this great idea for a new story arc following them into first century England around Stonehenge.
I also tinkered around with the WIP. Wrote about 1000 words. Not much, but itâ€™s something.
Today I decided to wear something completely different. I pulled out of my closet a lime green cardigan with a satin shell and this gorgeous pale green and lime green skirt. First time Iâ€™ve worn a dress inâ€¦ ohâ€¦ two months or so. But I was getting sick of my pants. Anyway, this morning as I was getting my coffee, one of my (male) coworkers paused and said, â€œI must say â€“ and I mean this with all due respect â€“ that color looks fabulous on you.â€
Now imagine that with a Latin accent.
If I close my eyes, I can imagine this hunky, tan, tall man with wavy dark hair and dark brown eyes saying that. *purr* Iâ€™ve got to use that in a story somewhere.
I suppose he had to throw in that disclaimer, though, so he wouldnâ€™t have a sexual harassment suit slap him in the face.
Anyhoo.. must get to it.
