A Time For All Things...

Sorry you've been neglected, dearest reader.  Life is full of twisty, turny little roads that distract us from our focus and send us into the oblivion of mediocrity - or so I've heard.  I don't really have that excuse, my life is pretty flippin' excellent.

My TV is going out.  Do you know how hard it is to watch a film when the sound on your set keeps going out every 3 or 4 minutes, only to be restored by your humble servant turning it off and on again?  Well, it's difficult.  I'm wondering if I hook some speakers up to it, if this will make a difference - or if it just flat-out don't work no more.  Thoughts?  Anyhow, so no movies to report on.  Netflix probably thinks I'm dead.

On a more interesting front, I'm still dating that guy we discussed a few weeks ago.  I'm thinking that at this point, we are actually a "couple," but I didn't get any sort of framed certificate or membership card or anything, so I'm not entirely sure.  I know what you are thinking - what a lucky bastard.  Yep, I'll support that.

And finally - next weekend - THE WRITER'S CONFERENCE!  I'm getting more than moderately excited, for at the end of this conference, I officially start working on "the book."  My excitement is tempered by 1) I don't really know what I'm doing, and 2) one of the events that will surely come up as I write is the demise of my second marriage, and I don't know now deeply I want to dive into that pool.  Funny thing about self-worth:  when you finally start to feel some again, you aren't jonesing to throw it away again by reliving a really horrible marriage on paper.  So I'm wondering if I can get away with glossing over that part, or Allah forbid, actually making it humorous.  Again, your thoughts are welcome.

I'm off now to put together a bookcase and a bench that I bought today at Home Depot.  It might be a good idea to have the EMT's on alert.


  1. What in hell would possess you to write about Klassy Ken? He isn't worth the paper to wipe your @$$ with.

    Good luck with the building projects. And be careful. ...even if an interlude with some hot EMT's would be nice...

  2. Darling Queenie - now how am I supposed to write about My Year With RDJR and NOT mention what was going on in my personal life??? Kind of a MAJOR DETAIL, wouldn't you agree?

    And, right now, I'm a one-EMT girl. :)

  3. I suppose you're right, KK is an unavoidable detail if that is the topic of your book. Just remember, there's a fine line between truth and libel. In his case, I'd say err on the side of libel. He can't afford a divorce lawyer and sue you for slander at the same time. Can he?

  4. Trust me, babe - the truth is bad enough.

  5. You write about whomever you want!!

    It's been a slow week and I ain't killed nobody.... YET!!!

    I can't wait to buy your book!
