Good Saturday, Good People! And how fares thee all?
I'm telling you, I was so ready to put this week in the rearview back on like Wednesday so I'm *very* glad that it's the weekend. But hey, I survived so that's a good thing, right?
It's Saturday.... whew. It's been a long week with a lot of suck for a lot of people in a lot of different ways. Just know that if you're going through a rough patch, that I'm keeping good thoughts for you guys. And if you ever need to bend an ear, so to speak, please feel free to shoot me an email. I'm always here to listen. Love you guys!
So I spent the morning kicking back and screwing around online (as evidenced by my post earlier this morning). I also did manage to get my Idol piece for the week written. Well, I have one small scene left to write and some editing to do of course, but it came together nicely. I suppose you could say that my piece this week was inspired a bit by Mother's Day being tomorrow and all. Ahem. But having it more or less done is a good thing and takes away the stress of having to bang it out an hour before the deadline like I did last week. Ugh. Unless it really sucks and has to be rewritten. Which is a possibility. I think the wonderful content editor I have in pixie117
will be able to tell me if it's a tweaker and keeper or something better left to in a toilet bowl and flushed. pixie117
and I are in dire need of some downtime. Lots of turn off the brain time is in order. I'm hoping we have time to watch at least a few of the Game of Thrones
series. I'm going to swing by the video store and hopefully they'll have it. But we'll see. If nothing else, it will be our new Wednesday night chill-out time viewing since Survivor
is wrapping up tomorrow night! Booooo on the no more Survivor
thing for a while. And hey, shaddap. We all have our guilty pleasures. Don't judge.
I'm also on the hunt for some new material for POD II. The existing POD II project hit a bit of a bump in my brain and I think it will be best served to be moved to the back burner temporarily until I can figure out the fix for it. I don't want to scrap it as I think there is some good stuff there. But there's a fatal flaw in the design that needs to be worked out before I can turn it loose again. So hopefully, with some conversation and maybe surfing around on the web, I'll come up with a new idea. No, not hopefully. I will
come up with a new idea that I can start hammering out beginning on Monday. This will happen. Momentum must be sustained.
Managed to cut my hair this morning. I have the worst hair in the history of hair. It's thick, curly/wavy and just totally unruly. I will never
have the perfectly coiffed locks you see in the magazines. So the easiest thing for me to do is just shave it. Not Kojak-style, of course. I don't take it all the way down to my skull. But it is pretty high and tight. And not wanting to pay a barber $20 to do it, I've learned to do it myself. The sister-unit even gave me the Cadillac of hair-shaving things for Christmas one year. I think I've gotten pretty good at it too! Apparently this morning, I was distracted enough by writing my Idol piece and watching epic rap battles that I somehow managed to miss just about the entire back of my dome. Whoops. I thought I was done and about half an hour later, I realized that I had some freaky Asian near-mullet going on. Whoops. So needless to say, I had to correct that little mistake. There's nothing worse than an Asian mullet.
Well, looks like it's about time for me to go hose all of the hair off of me and get myself together to head on over to pixie117
's place! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!!!
So how did the Universe treat you all this week? Was it all sunshine and roses? Or was it scraps on the mulching pile? Did it treat you kindly or were you given a snubbing? What were the highlights and the lowlights of your week? What is going on in your worlds, folks?
You know the drill... this is your sandbox, so feel free to jump on in and play a while. Need to rant or vent about something? Need to sing somebody's praises from the rooftops? Need to get up on your soapbox and verbally obliterate something or somebody? Got a funny joke to share? An amusing anecdote? A dirty haiku or limerick? Anything and everything is welcome and encouraged here. The spotlight is now yours, boys and girls.
As always, the Purge Bucket is open for your convenience. Spew forth, my friends!!!
