Do nothing. Here's an article that might inspire all you good-for-nothing bums out there. Doing nothing can be stressful sometimes. It's always nice to know that there are perks waiting for you.

Unreviewed. Here are the results of the Peer-to-Peer Review Project where bloggers were asked to review each other's blogs. I signed up for the project but I didn't get reviewed. I'm a bit disappointed. I was looking forward to reading about what other people thought of my writing. Maybe the reason I didn't get reviewed was that I didn't submit a review of the site I was assigned. I was willing to do the review but there was nothing to review. The site only had two entries, and hasn't been updated since February.
Better luck next time then. I heard there's going to be another one.

Hey! It's my birthday today. You can greet me. That's not such a hard thing to do right?
Please?
Pretty please?
Here's the comment link. Go ahead and knock yourself out!

Here's a quote, and it's mine. The work of an editor is like that of a priest. It takes just one mistake for everything you stood for to be branded a heresy.
Do you agree with me?




I'm almost halfway (almost halfway--where do you figure that is?) Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire. Lestat and Louis has recently settled in New Orleans after the furor in Pointe du Lac. Lestat is still loving his bad ways and Louis has just discovered the beauty of being true to your nature. And both of them teamed up to make a vampire out of Claudia.
I haven't seen the movie. It's on regular rotation right now on HBO but I don't want to see it until I've finished the book. I may be setting myself up for disappointment because the movie is always worse than the book. I don't want to see the movie because I think it's a good story. And with good stories, it's always better to take the scenic and more wonder-filled path than the two-hour short cut.




Self-congratulatory? Yes, but what's the matter with that? In less than 24 hours, I'll be turning 26. I will have lived for more than a quarter of a century. I know I'm supposed to think that I am young but, if you really think about it, 25 years really is a long time. I feel pretty good about where I am right now.
I've found a profession I like--I write and get paid for it. It's not a lot but it's a living. Besides, I can buy most of the stuff I want. And those I can't afford? I don't really need them anyway.
I'm going to lawschool, something that I've always wanted to do since I was a kid. It took me three years before I finally decided that I would never be happy if I didn't at least try. Law is my personal legend and I won't stop until I become a lawyer.
I've got great friends--one just right for every one of my multiple personalities. There's one I can talk to about books, music, movies, life, work, guys, and other stuff I go crazy about.
I've even got a Penelope Cruz haircut.
Only thing I need right now is a guy who looks like Tom Cruise but doesn't think and act like him.

I just remembered Nick Hornby. Or more specifically, I remembered the Nick Hornby book I've abandoned about six months ago. The book, whose title I can't even remember at the moment, is now gathering dust and patiently waiting for the day when I decide to pick it up. That'll probably happen around the same time that the movie (I heard there's a Colin Firth movie on it) finally gets shown.
I don't usually go around remembering bits about Nick Honrby, except that I stumbled on this Arsenal FC website. The main character in the book (whose title I still can't remember) is a rabid Arsenal fan.

Don't you just love these babies. In an Anne Geddes world, all babies are cute, cuddly, and well-behaved. In an Anne Geddes world, moms and dads all get enough sleep.

Sometimes good ideas suck. Take my new hair cut for instance. I haven't had a hair cut for about three months and I've noticed that my thick hair has become a bit unwieldy. Whenever I put it up in a pony tial, it actually looks like a horse's tail. Something had to be done so I went to the salon last night.
Getting my hair cut wasn't a drastic decision. I;ve been thinking about it for sometime now. So when it was my turn, I knew exactly what I had to say: shorten the length by two inches, layer it, and some bangs please. Yep, bangs. Think JLo or Natalie Imbruglia.
As you may already have learned from your own experiences, sometimes there's a wide gulf between reality and fantasy. There are times when good ideas actually suck.
Last night, I re-learned that lesson. About ten seconds after she cut off my hair to give me some bangs, I was thinking, "What was I thinking?" And my friends started going, "Hey, give her some hair spray so she can tease it up like people did in the 80s."
Uggh.
