  1. Past hour
  2. 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 :heart:!

     

    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!

      I think I heard of Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi before. Yaoi, right? :gikkle:

      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)

  3. Today

      That’s awesome! We’re doing good here. Things settling after a busy couple of months.

  6. 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.

    ...

     

    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."

  16. "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.

    2. MacGreg

      MacGreg

      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.

      Wise-ass, maybe...

       

      *blink*

       

      Is he serious?

       

      Ahhhhh!

       

      Don't fuck up, Mystic! Be wise!

      Outside:

       

      *cough*

       

      "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."

       

      Inside:

       

      How was that? Did they buy it?

       

      Crap! What if this isn't funny?

      Ahhhh!

      I'm posting it anyway. Otherwise I just wasted 5 minutes. 

      *gulp*

  20. 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.

      i don't know how it works where you live, but here, i contacted the the office that controls the jury duty people and asked for a permanent release from jury duty. my doctor had to fill out a form as to why and note that this was a permanent condition. good luck jp

  21. 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?

     

    Sigh...

     

     

    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.

     

    Terrifying, right?

     

    But but... I need to know!

     

    Sigh...

     

    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...

    “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    

    last.                                                                                        

     

    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

    his allowance."                                                                   

     

    ...

     

     

    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 

    answer.                                                                                

     

     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    

    closed."                                                                                

     

    ...

    All you have to do is concentrate on the little cross on the left, and then after a minute or so, switch your focus to the cross on the right. The black and white photo now becomes pink.

      Not sure if I'd ever taste octocow milk... :puke: 

       

      Way to go, Dad! Those questions are all too often ducked. So good in him to take the time, even if his girl may be slightly confused at the moment.

      Or is this the usual male chauvinistic game of a man gets to chose, but the woman should be happy someone wants her? :rolleyes:

      …and the man is cheered for getting the woman/women into bed, but the woman is condemned for succumbing to the same behavior?

      You are very welcome.  I hope your day has been fabulous!

  28. 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.

      Often in minutes (cough @BHopper2 cough)

       

      Who's profile is this?

       

      Thanks everyone!

  29. 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.

      Listen three eyes. Don’t try and out-weird me, I get stranger things than you free  with my breakfast cereal.

      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.
