    I'm always struggling with money, it's no surprise.

    It's too bad I couldn't become famous with writing while I was here. Maybe in my next life. I can be a ghost writer or zombie writer. Publish me or I'll eat your brains!!!

    Is there any way you'll be able to log in at all at a library or something? I'm gonna miss you.

    ETA: Heh, bos said the same thing.

    Morning Hounds!

    I really need to be horribly mopey around every Easter! I just accidentally got my family to break our bullshit Easter tradition so i don't have to spend a weekend in hell!

    When i was 9 after my grandfather passed, my family (Mom, Grandmom and Aunt when she was alive) for every Thanksgiving, Easter, and Mother's Day started going down Atlantic City NJ, because my grandmom likes to gamble and instead of cooking some big dinner we would have a fancy dinner down there.

    I don't know if anyone has been in AC, or been there under 21, but its the single most boring place on the face of the earth. Cant walk around the hotel, because all the drunk people and every floor is forbidden to step foot on if your not 21, so the only thing i could do was sit in a room staring at a wall or watching there one of 5 tv channels. Anyway the tradition from hell continues, and even though i'm now 21, I didn't get the gambling gene, rather save up the money I earn. But this year i only have to stay down there one night! My mom text me this morning and was like "we know you hate it and wont put you through it this year". Guess the breakup at least had that really awesome bonus!

    Just got a bite from a potential new employer. He wants me to reformat my resume to better emphasize a few things (mainly my writing skills - the job I applied for was Document Control, but it sounds like they might have something else in mind) so I need to go work on that awhile.

    Good luck, Greg!



    This is me today --->

    Sometimes I think I'm writing the most weird and random and uninteresting story of ALL TIME.

    *sigh*

    And it's too early for me to start drinking to make those thoughts go away.

    I recommend a break for a little while - like take a walk.

    I. Am. Exhausted.

    I popped in here hoping the distraction would wake me up but yeah, not so much.

    How about coffee, Laurie?




    It's too cold/rainy for a walk. But I've been forcing myself to stop and exercise a little periodically. And read for a bit.


    And there's always that pile of clothes on the couch....

    *stares at endless laundry pile*

    I guess I could take a break and fold for awhile.




    ETA: Dammit. Now I want coffee.

    I haz coffee, but I'm drinking a coke.

    Nice day out today, though I was at work for the majority of it and slept through the rest of it. But there were rumors of a nice day.

    I never used one at the library before, but I'm sure they have those here. I think I owe the library from twenty yrs ago, I wonder if they'll have that in their records still.

    My friend's son was awake today speaking and writing. The picture of him she posted showed him out of the neck and skull braces writing in a tablet.

    That is good news! Hope this means that he'll mend quickly. I might have missed a post of yours- was there any permanent injuries?

    None that I'm aware of. I'll know more when she gets back from KC on Monday (if she comes back that day).

    Well, I hope not. Neck and skull braces sound scary, though.
