Later For You, 2005

The tendency here is to make this particular post an electronic version of a bad 10th Grade "What I Did Over Christmas Vacation" theme. But I'll spare you.

Mostly out of sheer laziness on my part.

Who cares? As long as you don't have to read another list of what people got for Christmas that you wish you'd gotten (or are quite happy you didn't get), right? Or a quaint little list of what my 2006 resolutions are (it's short. There's one. Make Movies. Period).

Nah, you don't need any of that crap. And I don't need to write it. I know how my Christmas vacation went (very well, thank you). I spent time with Family both here and in Indiana. I got some cool presents (and exchanged a few other not so cool presents). And the kids were heard several times saying this was the best Christmas ever. Ever. One's 10, the other's 11. Ever. They don't know from ever, but it was still nice to hear.

And with that I officially conclude my first post of 2006. No fanfare for the passing year. No trumpets heralding the new year. It's simply another day.

To make movies.

Marriage Material??

I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.

She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the more personal details, but the gist was, at one point, the dude-bro she was talking to flat out told her that she wasn’t marriage material.

Torn between wanting to be a supportive friend and being completely gobsmacked, I felt her frustration. No. That’s not quite right. I didn’t feel the same frustration she felt. I’m approaching what some consider middle age. I’m white. I’m primarily interested in women. Oh, and I have a penis., I can never truly feel the same frustration she was feeling. Or an anger that comes from the same place her anger came from. No matter how in touch I am witn my feminine side (whatever the fuck that actually means).

Instead, the frustration and anger I was feeling w…

Out of Sorts

Not sure what my deal is today. I got up this morning to go for a walk and it was spitting rain, but no biggie. My thriftstore Nikes were kind of hurting my feet, so that didn't help. But it felt good to go for the walk (other than the hurting feet). And it's all going well...and then I get into work and just turn into PMS-Man.  I don't know what my deal is. I just feel bitchy this morning and I'm not sure why. Yeah. That's all I got.

Post Con-Fusion

It's 5:40 AM on a Wednesday. I have been up for an hour. I have an outline for a work in progress that I intended to work on this morning. I was in the middle of a chapter that I started at lunch and had every intention of continuing this morning. But, much like me, it seems the characters wanted to sleep in today. They wanted to just hunker under the covers as the rain danced its hypnotic melody on my roof. The swoosh swoosh swoosh of the ceiling fan keeping time with the rest of the nocturnal orchestra.

So, I shifted gears. I am taking  a course on getting more words on the page. Something that I want to do need to do if I am to get all of these books that are floating around in my head out in to the world. It's not so much that I think the whole world will love and adore them, although I certainly hope that is the case. No, it's more the fact that it's getting crowded up there. I need to get these words on the page for my own sanity as much as anything else.
