Virgo: You need a break. The time isn’t really right for you to do seriously tedious, demanding work. Need something edited? It ain’t you, Babe. Hire it out. Interns from local universities will usually work for next to nothing, or nothing, just to get close to the publishing business. They can at least line edit while you wait for the stars to shift.
Gotta love Mercury being in Retrograde. Or maybe the stars know I’m going through my twice-a-year bronchial crisis which feels like what my sisters have described a bad asthma attack as feeling like. Luckily it only lasts a month or two, then I get the summer off, then it happens again in the fall. (I’ve been told it’s related to some NH allergen, but nobody knows what. The Mystery Allergy.)
My property abuts a very prestigious international prep school, and I can just imagine their reaction should I approach them about editing my next EC manuscript.
That thought’s gonna get me through the day, actually.
I picked up a couple more books at Walmart yesterday while I was buying a cabinet in hopes of concealing some of the short kid’s junk:
Now I have to get all the junk into the cabinet. Blech. It took me like 3 hours to build the damn thing yesterday. (I’m not sure if that’s because I rented Serenity and had it going on the laptop. I found out afterward that I should have watched the Firefly series first. Huh.) Of course I have to move the damn thing first, since I built it in the kitchen, and since I can barely carry my coffee 10 feet without clutching my chest and wheezing for air, it should be amusing for the short kid.
The Oscars…meh, meh and more meh. Although Jon Stewart was fabulous. And the husband actually stayed up and watched the whole show because he was rooting so hard against Brokeback Mountain. I would have liked to have seen David Straitharn win because he’s probably the best actor whose name we don’t know ever. But from what I’ve seen, if anybody other than the Capote dude had won, it would have been a travesty.
Could I fit any more inane ramblings in here? (Probably.) At least the kids are back to school!
