A Mega Update

Holy crap! Has it really been 2 weeks since I've updated this? Oh mylanta. Well, I know this won't satisfy the ThriftPost jones (but hopefully I'll take care of that this Weds w/half-price thrift store day).

First off, I'd like to congratulate Darrin and Maryann on the birth of their baby girl, Norah Elizabeth, who decided to come into the world this past Friday.

To Darrin and Maryann--you guys are the greatest and Norah is lucky to have you as parents!! (and when you're ready for a night out, let us know, we'll babysit).

The second major update is news that the TwistedZen website has gone through a MAJOR overhaul. Go ahead, check it out, I'll wait. Who knew my ISP had such cool web design tools? Well, I mean, I do. Now.

And in other video news, I finally finished this year's installment of the Dylan Birthday Video Project (I can't tell you the name yet, because it's a surprise).

I've got some other family videos to work on before the fall soccer season starts.

OK. So, it's not really that MEGA of an update.

But hopefully it'll keep you coming back, at least after Wednesday.

Peace out.

Thanks for the baby sitting offer. I'm sure we'll take you up on it sometime, though I'm not sure how soon. I'm still trying to get the diaper changing thing down. :)

And the new web page looks awesome. Are you gonna have any clips on the new site?

Now that we've covered that, I'm ready for a thrift store update. My request is for you to find something is a piece of macrame. :)

Thanks!! Yeah. I'll put some clips on there. I'm contemplating the 'plus' package from the ISP that will let me get some additional pages that branch off from the main ones and play with the navigation a little better. Once I do that, I probably will put more clips up on the site.

But yeah, it was a blast.

Macreme? I'm on it.

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. So...no, 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. So..um. 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.
