Good Morning All!

Been a busy morning already. What with coffee to be made and consumed, feline companions to be amused and scritched and about a billion Idol entries to write. I did finish one of the six (so far) pieces last night/this morning. It went on for probably way too long so I was trying to hack and slash what I could but it's still pretty long. Ugh. But it is what it is. I more or less like it. We'll see how it turns out though. So one down, eleventy billion to go. At least I have some ideas for most of the others. Now it's just a matter of trying to knock them out. Keep those digits crossed!

So... before I get to my Saturday Playlist, I'm woefully lagging on my 5 Happy Things. Life has just gotten so much busier and interesting this week and I'm having a hard time keeping up with everything on my plate at the moment. I'm a wee bit overwhelmed. But it's all awesome stuff. There are unfortunately just only so many hours in the day!

Okay... on to my 5 Happy Things...

1) Being one of the last eight left standing in Idol. It's pretty amazing that from a field of like 350 or so filled with some *really* talented writers that I've gotten to this point. But of course, I wouldn't have if not for all of the awesome people who've supported me along the way. So THANK YOU ALL for reading and voting for me week after week after week... 36 now and counting... lol... Seriously though, thanks guys. I'm having a blast and your support means the world to me.

2) Getting to spend the weekend with the wonderful, amazing and lovely [livejournal.com profile] pixie117 of course. She makes slogging through the work week bearable because I know that I'll get a couple of days of bliss out time with her. Of course, this weekend will be filled with lots and lots and lots of work but I'll be with her, so it's all good.

3) Sooper Seekrit Squirrel stuff that I can't talk about just yet... but it's awesome and I'm so incredibly freaking stoked right now.

4) Good music. Love listening to songs I haven't heard in a while and reconnecting with them. They're like old, good friends... always there when you need them, all filled with some fond memories. Like coffee, I couldn't live without music.

5) The creative engine seems to be humming along nicely. There's air bubbles in the hoses that throw a hiccup into things now and then but the massive clog that was killing the whole machine a little while ago seems to have been fully cleared and it's currently cranking. And I love it.

Okay, now on with the tunes. Here's some of what's playing in the background in my place today. Looks like I was feeling a little old school today or something...

So how about you fine folks? What music is filling your morning? What's got you thinking and/or tapping your toes? What's on your soundtrack for this Saturday?

Good Morning, Good People and a Happy Flippin' Saturday to you!!!!

So we've made it through yet another week on this rock. Go us! And what do you find yourselves up to this weekend, my fine feathered friends?

This weekend, the beautiful and amazing [livejournal.com profile] pixie117 and I have a romantic weekend of... slogging through a ton of words planned. Evil Overlord Gary made sure of it by dropping SIX freaking topics on us (so far) all due on Monday!!! But hey, that just means we've made it to Hell Week in Idol. So it's a mixed blessing to say the least. But I am SO proud of my girl. She's worked so hard on her writing and is really turning out some GREAT stuff. For her to be one of the last 8 left standing says a hell of a lot, in my book. I couldn't be more proud of her. She is totally awesome and I would really suggest that you all read her pieces when she posts them if you're looking for some great stories to read. Her work is really great stuff and I'm so freaking happy for her. And I think you should be too because she's just that awesome! :-)

I'm slightly slogging a bit. My brain is otherwise occupied at the moment so the ideas aren't quite flowing. Hell, they're not even really trickling at the moment. I have a couple of ideas for a couple of the topics but I'm going to need more if I'm going to get to the starting gate this week. Which I'm hoping I can. The fight from here on in is going to be one epic battle so even if you're not playing Idol this season, I would really suggest stopping on in and checking out some of the good stuff being flung about!

No matter what happens though, I've hit my two major goals that I set out at the beginning of the season. One of which was to hit the 100 week mark. I passed that by surviving last week so I'm pretty stoked about that. It's a fairly small club and I'm pretty happy to have been able to join in the fun. That is thanks to you all who've come out, read my stuff and supported me this whole time which has enable me to go on pretty decent runs in my three seasons. So thanks to you guys for enabling me to hit that milestone!

In non-Idol news... yes, there *is* life beyond Idol (just not much of one when you're in the midst of Hell Week and making a push toward the end!!!)... I have some seriously awesome stuff that I'm dying to share. But at the moment, I'm out of time and can't so for now, it's in the Soooper Seekrit Squirrel folder. But it's completely occupying my brain at the moment... I'm completely overwhelmed and a little stressed out by the sheer enormity of the tasks at hand but it's all good stuff so I'm all smiles about it. I'll have to share when I get some time.

Anyway... I need to get myself together, cleaned up and down to [livejournal.com profile] pixie117's for our ever-so-romantic write-a-thon weekend! Wish us luck y'all!!!

So how has the Universe treated you this week, my friends? Has it embraced you warmly? Kicked you in the junk repeatedly with a steel-toed boot? Has it kissed your cheek? Punched you in the nose? What have been the highs, lows and in-betweens of your week? What's the haps and how the hell are you, my friends?

You all know the drill... need to get something off your chest? Need to rant, vent, spit or otherwise spew? Want to give somebody hugs and encouragement? Want to just shout from the rooftops about whatever crosses your mind? Want to wave your arms in the air like you just don't care? Feel the need to get up on your soapbox and let loose a string of profanities? Anything and everything is welcomed and encouraged here.

The floor is yours, good people. Step up on stage, let the spotlight hit you, grab the mic and let it all fly.

As always, the Purge Bucket is open for your convenience... spew forth, my friends!!!
