I heard back from the harried group of people I'm working with.
In my head, it's like watching sekaiichi hatsukoi from the inside !
Only I'm one of the mangaka. (Metaphor, i dont draw) Hopefully I'm not causing too much of the drama. Or, at least not every month.
Do a search for the manga/anime.
Check out my blog's first entry for the details of my part.
If I want to keep the drama to a minimum, I better stay where I'm at. A month ahead! Go for 2? Okay!
Indeed. Don't take the comparison too far. I'm not gonna end up dating my editor.
Unless my love decides to join GA and officially become one of my editors. Oo (confusion eyes) Would that be weird?
In my head:
"You've got to rewrite all 7 pages! By Thursday!"
Me: "But it took 6 weeks to finish these!"
*some sort of expression with meaning*
Me: "Well ok, but you're cooking dinner for a month!"
"Okay, what do you want tonight?"
Me: I don't know, you pick.
(Sigh... If only we weren't so geographically apart. Hehe)
Sitting at 13 squared. Always a favorite number.
And hey, 1 69. It's like a coupon!*
* redeemable only to your own significant others.
Just stopping by with a Hello and a for you.
My niece is the sweetest... She came over to shovel our sidewalks and walkways because Hubby isn't home to do it. She saw that our elderly neighbor hadn't done his yet either, and insisted on going over and doing his as well.
Ha! A ringing endorsement for Mojo, one kindly presented by @Dodger
"Two Bananas, a hard-boiled egg, Eleanor Roosevelt, two gay Caribbean sailors, a Second World War Luger and some hot spanking. How's that for a prompt?
This is turning into a masterpiece AC. No one can ever accuse you of being predictable.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. "
Another up and down day. Rainy and already it's 66 F outside with a high predicted of 71. The low tonight is supposed to get down to 30 and tomorrow is going to be a wintry mix. I'm so looking forward to spring!
i'm a bit of a grump today, not entirely sure why
bad jokes, knock knock jokes and puns appreciated
“When the scientist wanted to clone a deer, he
bought a doe it yourself kit.”
A highway patrolman was rushed to the hospital with
an inflamed appendix. The doctors operated and
advised him that all was well. However, the patrolman
kept feeling something pulling at the hairs in his
crotch. Worried that it might be a second surgery the
doctors hadn't told him about, he finally got enough
energy to pull his hospital gown up enough so he
could look at what was making him so uncomfortable.
Taped firmly across his pubic hair were three wide
strips of adhesive tape, the kind that takes everything
with it when you pull it off. Written in large red letters
across the tape was the sentence: Get well quick.....
From the nurse you gave a ticket to last week."
Q: You're trapped in a room with a tiger, a rattlesnake
and a lawyer. You have a gun with two bullets.
What should you do?
A: Shoot the lawyer. Twice.

I will be very honest with you, today has not been one of my banner days. The old
adage that you don't appreciate something until you lose it, is very true. I have to
reevaluate some things about myself and where I want to go from this point on.
This update ends here, I have nothing else to give you tonight.
OK, after ER vet, and regular vet, kitty home but not eating much. She walks like a newborn calf and is stressed out bigtime. Trying to let her acclimate and hopefuly new meds help.
"One of my all-time favorite jazz pianists is Thelonious Monk. Once, when someone asked him how he managed to get a certain special sound out of the piano, Monk pointed to the keyboard and said: 'It can’t be any new note. When you look at the keyboard, all the notes are there already. But if you mean a note enough, it will sound different. You got to pick the notes you really mean!'
"I often recall these words when I am writing, and I think to myself, 'It’s true. There aren’t any new words. Our job is to give new meanings and special overtones to absolutely ordinary words.' I find the thought reassuring. It means that vast, unknown stretches still lie before us, fertile territories just waiting for us to cultivate them."
- Haruki Murakami, Japanese novelist
The one point I take issue with in Murakami's statements is the one about no new words. Language is always changing and growing. New words are added to dictionaries every year. All change isn't necessarily for the better. I'm waiting for the almost inevitable book written entirely in text message shorthand.
There is truth to that @drpaladin. Language is never stagnant. Finding ways to bring ordinary words to new heights is an aspiration for a writer. Nope, I don't want to even think of the possibility of text message shorthand novels being published.
Rains today helped erase some of our drought concerns.
My 2-day total I'm up 54 points. I wonder if I should open a studio?
I think you can count on more number puns. I think it runs in my vampire family tree.

Meanwhile, inside my head:
Is he serious?
Don't fuck up, Mystic! Be wise!
"Why thank you sir. I appreciate your interest and support. You're very kind. Uh... don't deprecate yourself so much.
Please stay tuned for more. Thank you, again."
How was that? Did they buy it?
Crap! What if this isn't funny?
I'm posting it anyway. Otherwise I just wasted 5 minutes.
Sigh! For the third time in 9 years I’ve been called for jury duty. Being blind, I’m not supposed to be summoned. What a pain to keep sending medical info.
Thank you Sir @MacGreg. If I could, I would. They expect you to see exhibits and read handouts and take notes.
When you're in a project with a group of people, and none of them answer your emails as quickly as you want them to:
Me: I only took 2 hours to write about 6 different topics in one email.
Someone normal should be able to process, consider, cross check whatever, make decisions, and write it all out in a thoughtful and engaging manner, for each topic of several hundred words, in like, 5 minutes, right?
Honestly, I feel bad for these people. Imagine getting six of my comments in one email, at 9pm, in the middle of living your own life.
But but... I need to know!
I feel bad for these people. They know who they are.
Edit: I wonder what else I can go comment on while I wait?
I'm sure @Comicality has a few I haven't gotten to yet.
Seriously, I bet there are people that write chapters shorter then one of my wall of text emails.

I've often heard it said that "the cake is a lie." in this case, the cake was a metaphor, but still.
I'm sending for a sampler box (or 3) from this "cakes and more" place in town. Cupcake sized samples but I'm sure there's something for everyone. Use your imagination. XD
So... just chill, ok? I'll make sure there's enough for everybody in your head, so no more fighting. Sounds like I better double my order...
It's all alright, you're alright.
( I think I've read that before somewhere. XD I wonder...)
I'M GOING INTO EARLY LABOR!
Great Olympic moment and great Mom moment: Sally Field tweets trying to get her son and Adam Rippon to hook up. I'm not on Twitter but this might just entice me to sign up. Are we watching the Winter Games or the Gay Games? Still haven't forgiven the IOC for denying us the use of the word Olympics.
“Ducks are often surprised and caught flat-footed."
I have five siblings . . . three sisters and two brothers.
One night I was chatting with my mom about how she
had changed as a mother from her first child to her
She told me she really had mellowed quite a lot over
the years . . .
"When your oldest sister coughed or sneezed, I
called the ambulance. When your youngest brother
swallowed a dime, I just told him it was coming out of
An 8-year-old girl asks her father, "Daddy, what is
sex?" The father is somewhat surprised that she
would ask such a question.
But, he reckons if she's old enough to ask the
question, then surely she's old enough for a straight
So, the father proceeds to tell his young daughter all
about the "birds and the bees."
After a brief explanation, the little girl appears wide-
eyed in disbelief. "By the way, dear, why did you
ask?" the father asks.
The little girl replies, "Mommy told me to tell you that
dinner would be ready in just a couple of secs."
After church, little Johnny and his brother go ice fishing.
Little Johnny starts drilling on the ice when a voice from
above says, "Young man, there's no fish down there.”
Little Johnny asks his brother, "Who is that?"
His brother replies, "I don't know."
So little Johnny starts to drill again and the voice says
again, "For the second time, there's no fish down there."
Little Johnny asks his brother, "Could that be God?"
His brother replies again, "I don't know."
Little Johnny starts drilling again and the voice says
once more, "Young man, for the last time, I'm telling
you there's no fish down there."
Johnny looks up and asks, "Is that you, God?"
The voice says, "No, I'm the manager and the rink's

It's time to celebrate the discovery of VimpireMyticurium! My reputation count has surpassed the current periodic table of elements.
And upon reflection my content count is now six times what it was when I returned to activity.
Reflect: 6 x 7 = 42
@BHopper2, you put me at 120 while I was still writing this about reaching 119.
The answer to the question of the meaning of life, the universe, and everything is 42. ( the question is more complicated)
At this moment my content count is also 42.
"Don't panic" is on the cover because it's good advice. So don't forget your towels, folks. From here you don't know where you'll end up for sure.

Oo ( it's a way of showing confusion with two differently sized eyes)
Afraid you've miscounted my eyes and underestimated my weirdness. In the totality of my time here I've only shown the first snowflakes of the tip of my particular iceberg. But then again, I haven't been over to take a look at yours.
So let's table any comparisons for a while.
