Weekend Update with Feena Tay

The weekend was actually pretty calm.
Picked up Jen on Friday and her and Tommy and I went to the Pizza Buffet to get our grub on. I have to admit that I really wasn't feeling it too much, but that didn't stop me from dropping a couple plates of pizza and some cinnamon rolls. The place was packed.

After that it was off to Iggle to get some video games. We wound up staying up til 11 or 12. (I stayed up another hour after the kids crashed).

Tommy's game was Saturday. I filmed parts of it for the team video I'm doing. Saturday afternoon Jen and I chilled while Tommy and Nancy swam at the rec center. She (Jen, not Nancy) actually spent a good part of the afternoon in her room editing her first movie (yes...I am insanely proud, thankyouverymuch).

The evening was capped off by a very disappointing trip to Olive Garden. To go into detail here would be to give that event much more credibility than it deserves. So, pffffth.

Sunday Nancy had rehearsal and Jen finished up her movie. We burned it to DVD and screened it. "Recess and Other Stuffs" was an instant hit, although it did make Tommy a little dizzy. I thought about putting a link to it up here, but thought better of it when I realized kids that were not mine were also in the video. Best to let Jen worry about the distributions and screenings :-)

Needless to say, it was very cool.

The rest of the weekend was pretty even on that keel. Some stuff over in TwistedZen Productions-land also occurred, but I'm too lazy to type them twice, so click on the link if you're interested.

And that's all I really got for now.

Talk to y'all soon!

(and you'll be happy to know that another thrift store run is planned for Wednesday evening...stay tuned sportsfans).

I'll leave you with my new favorite quote, courtesy of Scott Adams, cartoonist:
"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."

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.
