Random Blatherings

Yes, I am about to become a Tante again! My sister Mary is in labor and baby Rowan is on her way. :)

I'm praying very hard I get the day off from work.

I've started a synopsis. The more I write, the stupider it sounds. What happened to all the brilliant ideas that kept me awake at night?

Nothing like fighting with my husband over what we're going to watch at 8. He wanted NCIS (gag). I wanted American Idol. I had to wait till 9 p.m. to get my way...and then I fell asleep.

The reason I fell asleep is because I had a 2-day migraine and was drugged to the gills. This is the worst one I'd had since I missed Orthodox Christmas. I barfed in the car. Thank God for stray coffee cups. Elijah, in the back seat, was perfectly was appalled. How do you like it, dog?

New haircut: awesome!

Reading LIAR by Justine Larbalestier. My goal is to read 3 books a week. This makes # 3.

Got a retractable leash for Elijah for trips to the backyard to keep him from hauling me into the swamp. However, pulling him back in is like reeling in Jaws. Something tells me I'll need a shoulder replacement one of these days. 

Time to move.

As a fellow migraine sufferer, I know the havoc they can wreak. I hope you're feeling better!

I'm feeling much better now. In fact I almost feel "high" now that the pain is gone. Thanks.

Thank you Melodye! And I did get the day off, so I am off to write and then visit my new niece. :)

Congrats being a Tante again! How exciting!

Synopsis... UGH!!! I tried writing one this week. Spent six hours banging my head on the desk and pulling my hair out. Er, I mean, working on it. I finally said screw it, I refuse to do this and moved on. Personally, I think whoever invented the synopsis should be shot. And if they're already dead, then we should bring them back to life just so we can shoot them.

Hey, I'm currently reading LIAR too. Just started it yesterday. I'm about halfway through.

Halfway through LIAR here, too!

I only wrote one synopsis in my life, for my first novel, and I never even needed the dang thing.
