I’m at work and I’m dying of boredom. They taken away most of the jobs we used to do and while they have reassured us many times that, not to worry, we will be getting lots more to replace what we’ve lost, as of right now, I’m done my work for the day and it’s not even noon!!
This is when my mind wanders. OK – it wanders all the time, but it’s even worse when I don’t have anything to keep it busy.
Has this happened to anyone often? I was reading a book, Cate Noble’s Dead Right (as opposed to Kate Noble’s Compromised – yes I have them both. I was at the store trying to figure out which one to buy since I was curious to see how different the author would treat these two different genres – one a RS and the other a historical – only to discover while entering them into the spread sheet they were two different authors) – really getting into it when I turned the page and what I was reading made no sense whatsoever. After a long huh? , I realized that 20 pages were missing!
Luckily I still have the receipt so I’m going to take it back and get another copy tonight, but still – I was on a roll! This happened at work and one good reason why I always carry two books with me!
OK – I was at work and then it got busy (thank goodness!). I did indeed stop on the way home and exchanged books and now (hopefully) I have the full book.
I opened a Twitter account tonight. I have no idea what to do with it now though. It will probably sit there doing nothing until I have enough brains back to figure out what to do. I was pretty reluctant to open one, but it seems everyone has one these days so I thought I’d go against the demographics and open one. I don’t think I fit into the demographics of ‘twittering’
I haven’t actually come out and said so on the blog – but I’m making it official – I’m going to DC, I’m going to DC – to the RWA conven - tion. I’m looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and connecting with new ones. Wendy posted a list of the authors who will be at the literacy signing and while there are a few authors I’m sad won’t be there – there are some fab ones who will be!
I’ve hired a lawn service. I’m having my first ‘cut’ tomorrow. My neighbours will be so happy!! And I won’t have to hide my head in shame when I pull out of the driveway and see the long grass. It was kind of cool how I found them. I helped a friend move on Saturday and she found this small company online to move her. When they showed up, I asked them ‘you don’t do lawns by any chance do you?’ And they said Yes! Then – pushing my luck, I asked ‘and what are the odds that you do junk removal?’
‘Good they said – they do that too!!’ Yippee I said – well I didn’t say that out loud. They were all young and attractive and one who is older doesn’t say Yippee out loud.
But I have old, old furniture in the basement and I’ve wanted to get rid of it and replace it with new stuff for a long time now. And my ‘library’ in the one room isn’t large enough anymore so I’m going to have to expand into the next room and with a huge wall unit and 2 beat up and ratty couches and 2 old chairs gone – I’ll have more room! Now I just have to have that done before I have a special guest come and stay with me in a few weeks.
