Thought for the day

What you resist will persist.

I make it no secret I have no plans on ever having kids. Not my thing.

Yet, I can't help but wonder why
  1. All my friends are mommies
  2. When I stayed with friends while back while out of town, I got thrown dead center into her Mommy and Me group the whole time.
  3. The mommy blogger has taken over.
  4. The mommy movie has become a genre all it's own.
  5. The Empress card, the 9 of Pentacles card, the Queen of Pentacles card - all pregnancy cards- keep popping up in readings.

Well, I suppose if the Universe wants me to have a kid at some point, it will happen. So I guess I must just relax and say okay fine. Enough throwing me to the mommies.

I need a new editor

You've heard me say I'm working on my novel. I am ready to start draft 3. My editor is good for an American. I sent a copy of my novel to my friend's mom who is a retired English teacher. She read to chapter 5 and refused to go any further. Her reason, my choice of language. I tend to be very liberal with the words f**k, d**k, tits, etc.

I have no issues with this. But, now, I might be without any editor.

Whind Down

It's Thursday night, and I'm feeling like I am spinning in circles.

The landlord finally fixed my oven, or I should say he stood there and told his son what to do to fix it. Not that it was that difficult, a trained monkey could have done it. I could have done it. But the landlord wouldn't let me. Seriously. He showed up with the coil in his hand, said he had a bad back and would do it in the morning. I said can I just install the new coil myself.
No, he wanted to do it himself. Then half hour later showed up with his son and less then 10 minutes after that my oven was fixed.
It only took him 5 days.

I have so many blogs, and a few accounts. My mind is reeling. I know I need to shut some of them down, but I just can't.
The whole reason I started this account with this blog and The Year I Lived Off Of Ramen Noodles is because I have one follower/friend/business partner who subscribes to all my other blogs. I had no where to vent about the crap they put me through all the time.
And just as I was starting to get comfy on my cooking blog again, they decided to practically sit on that one. Every second hit on the hits tracker for the cooking blog is that person. So, no relaxing on there and doing anything other then food stuff.

I can't win.

And my Editor... I have not heard anything from my editor in almost a week. I have no idea what is going on right now.

I just want one spot to be able to combine all my blogging topics without having to worry who I piss off and not have to worry about loosing readers because they did not like one of my topics.
It's just so damned confusing and tiring having to jump around the internet all day long.

okay, that's the rant for this week.

One of those weeks

My editor has changed the way one character talks. This changes their personality, which changes their story arch.
I'm not happy.

My oven blew a coil last night. 3 of the elements are not working. My landlord is away for the week and I can't even tell him the oven is dead. I have no oven and only one small back burner on the stove top working.
I'm not happy

The pipes in the bathroom every spring back up. Now the kitchen sink has started to do the same thing. I went to do my dishes this morning and found water sitting there and the sink clogged. I know I did not leave water in my sink this last few days. I had a tantrum and threw out all my dishes that were sitting in the sink. I did eventually get the clog out but the pipes are still being a bitch.
I am really not happy.

I hate living here. Ever since this landlord took over this place has become a semi-slum. I can't afford to move, and now I need to buy new dishes.

Corey Haim Dead at 38

I was shocked when I read that this afternoon it was announced actor Corey Haim had died.
He was always a favourite actor, and the Lost Boys is my all time favourite movie.

I remember watching him on the tv show Edison Twins, which was a big Canadian show back in the early 80's. It was an interesting mix between a drama and an educational show.

I also loved his character of Dinger from the Dream a Little Dream movies.

What are your passions

Passions.
Everyone has one or two or you know. Or so we are told.

What happens when you get to a point in your life and you ask "what now?"

That seems to be the crossroads I am at. What now?

I find myself spinning in circles not knowing what I want or if I even want anything. I am covering everything here, my location, my hobbies, my friends, everything.

I don't have any idea what to do to even start trying to find the answers. I tried doing the Julie/Julia thing last summer with my cooking blog but that hit a few roadblocks. I was hoping to have a big A-HA moment from it. Still waiting for that moment to come.

You and your man....purse

I actually hate that term. Man Purse. But it is better then the Murse.
Its a bag. Mini briefcase, tote, satchel, or my favourite the messengers bag. What do you boys carry in them?

I've had guys in high school actually steal my purse, dump it's contents on the floor in the class just cause they wanted to know what the hell us girls carried around all the time that would need a purse. That was over 20 years ago.

The tables are turned and we women want to know what you men are carrying around that a basic briefcase just won't do for anymore.

So come on spill tell me what's in your bag guys.
