  1. Taking baby steps: wrote one page, now fighting my inner demons NOT to tear it up and burn it.  I’ve got to get back in the writing habit, even if it is AWFUL.

      They’re slowly getting everyone full functionality.  This was not well planned lol.

      It never is. Trust me, I work for the freaking government, so we’re definitely going with dysfunctional.  But at least we got the word on Thursday that we shouldn’t go out and visit cases in person anymore.  :lol:

      Well, I don’t work for the government, but I do work at a grocery store, so I sympathize in regard to the craziness.  Sorry for what you’re going through.

    Encouraged

    A long, long time ago, in what feels like another lifetime, I wrote a tribute piece for a dear friend who passed away. The piece was for publication in the flyer for his memorial race. Yesterday, his son, now my neighbor, stood in my yard, with tears in his eyes, thanking me for writing the piece, capturing what that part of his dad’s life was all about. I didn’t sign the piece. He just knew it was me. He says he goes through his dad’s scrapbook every year, takes out that flyer, and smiles. So for those of us who write, alone in the dark, with no idea who is reading, keep writing. If your words only touch one person, you have succeeded! Keep writing!
  5. Operation GetFired  is not going well.  I must up my SnarkGame.  :)

      Thus far, I’ve tried:

      1. Telling off the biggest boss I could find
      2. threatened to stab my favorite coworker with a plastic spoon
      3. told a client that I’m not Dr. Who and can’t use the Tardis to travel back in time to accommodate their request
      4. told same client that they would need to provide the Oujia board to have the dead person sign the documents that they wanted signed
      5. yelling at the closest supervisor to me
      6. Yelling at email from aforementioned client: “F off, Dickety Dick!” in front of the biggest of the big bosses
      7. Asked another client, “What part of ‘your borrower does not want to do that’ did you knot understand?”
      8. Stood up with the same coworker, blasted “I Will Survive” while singing along and Dancing at our desks
      9. Bit my supervisor’s finger – she had her hand clamped over my mouth when MucketySchmuck was escorting visitors past us on a tour – ruined my perfect window of opportunity 
      10. Sat at my desk and filed my nails while waiting for the computer to catch up to me
      11. used my cellphone at my desk in full view of everyone
      12. walked across the office with my dress tucked in my underwear – granted that was a mistake but …
      13. deliberately did not dress up on “visitor day”

      Forecast for my area says it may get up to 27c/80f on one day next week. We’re not used to this kind of thing. We live in high, cold places for ONE reason! (Alright, two including avoiding hordes of angry villagers with pitchforks and torches.)

      I hope ya able to get cooled down in your places tho’ all.

      It’s 36C/98F here right now. Dragons, I tell you. Dragons.

      Why are you dancing in the rain?:Banana:

      115 F/ 46.1 C Here in good ol AZ

  8. Bronxwench or DemonGoddess would be the stronger authorities on this, but I believe what you are thinking of, fictions about the authors themselves, rather than based in their literary worlds, would fall under the celebrity category, not Books, as they are real people.
  9. Say it with me:  This WILL be a better week!  :)

      Damn it, I do hope eldest Spawn is back out tomorrow and a-ok.

      Spawn is finally home, and we’re all very happy about that. I’m going to try not to provoke the universe any further, because I’m already done with this annus horribilus.

      Excellent.  Fingers crossed for a smoother run from here on.

  10. Congrats on another trip around the sun :D@pittwitch

  11. does not recommend stair surfing.  Things get broken.  Like your neck, your collarbone, and apparently your wrist.  :(

      Ow, shit ouch. Fucksakes, horrible for you. I hope you’re doing better after the surgery.

      Oh my goodness. I’m sorry. I hope you get well soon.

  12. I do remember this story as well. I can’t search for it for you because the author took it down.
  13. Pass the brain bleach, please?

      If we’ve run out, it might be because some of my readers were hogging it again.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Unfortunately, in this situation, we’re limited in what we can do. I’m probably the least tech savvy of us all. There are issues with using the site on a phone or tablet. I just don’t know how to work around them. Please be patient. Those with the power to set things right will get back to you.
