So this morning I got a text message from Richard - NOT my brother-in-law - asking me if I'm available for dinner tonight.

Um. Let me think here.

I got mail! TWICE! One lovely letter from [ profile] rainpuddle13 and one very sweet card from [ profile] water_jade. I love my friends. You guys never fail to make me happy.

I've realized that I have an appalling lack of The Police and Red Hot Chili Peppers in my music portfolio. This must be remedied post haste.

What is the name of the band that does that 'going the distance' song? You know the one.

He's going the distance
He's going for speed
She's all alone (all alone)
All alone in her time of need

That one. They have another one about a woman who changes her name from Kitty? to Kelly? or something like that. WHO IS THAT? I could Google it, but I'm lazy and I figure one of you will know the answer.

It is ridiculous that I'm thinking about turning on the air conditioner at night in the month of October. It is fall, damn it. Act like it!

I'm going to Richard's tonight for pizza and a movie. He's bringing the pizza and I'm bringing the movie. Although he picked it. We're going to watch 'Knocked Up'. So, you may have noticed the breaking-things-off plan is not going so hot. *sigh* I can't seem to find my backbone. Have any of you seen it?

If you haven't been watching [ profile] caliga_rpg, you should check it out. I'm not playing because I suck at scening. I have to watch, though, because I'm feeling left out. :/ Because, you know, even if I didn't suck at scening, I totally have time for that with work being crazy and the million and one fics I'm being so very productive on.

I want to post 'The Proposal' on FIA because it will, eventually, be a story that fits the archive (and because it's my 'home' archive, the archive I love the most). But since all I have ready to post is that first Ginny/Lucius bit, I'm a little afraid I'll be chased by D/G fans with pitchforks. Perhaps I'll wait until I've got more of the story written. More prudent?

I haven't used this icon in a long time. I needed to break it out.

Bah, it's getting late. I'd better go get ready.

ETA: Stealthily corrected lyrics.

Why is my internetz so slow tonight? It's irritating.

Why is Lys' LJ not letting me comment on her entry? That's irritating, too. Although she's probably just as happy not to hear from me on this topic. *winks* Just kidding. Lys tolerates my conservative indignation with very good humor. That's one of the many reasons I love her.

Why is it that I can spend the entire afternoon being attacked by a plot bunny, but as soon as I sit in front of my computer it skulks into its warren and won't come out? Bah. Stupid work. If I wasn't so busy there, I could have written the blasted drabble already. Unfortunately, I am really, really busy.

I'm planning to close out my lyric meme tomorrow. If you want to make some final guesses, you can do that here:

I updated my favorite character meme with the answers that weren't guessed. If you're curious, you can find that here:

If you haven't been to and you are a Twilight fan, you should go. She has nifty outtakes and other squee-inducing stuff. The most phenomenal being the first chapter of Midnight Sun, which will eventually be published. Midnight Sun is Twilight, but from Edward's POV. Guh. Could I love Edward any more? *thinks* Nope, I don't think I could. I lurve Edward. The frustrating thing about reading this snippet, though, is that Midnight Sun won't be published until after the fourth book in the Twilight series. That book is slated to come out in the fall of 2008, so figure a year or two after that. I'm too impatient to wait that long! *stomps feet and generally pitches a fit* You can read the first chapter here: If you feel like tormenting yourself, that is.

Last night Mer and I had Starbucks and Coldstone for dinner. Not great for my weight loss plan, but SO yummy. Still, I was half a pound lighter this morning than yesterday morning, so it's all good.

I've been trying to work on Anniversary, but not getting very far. I've been making progress on the second chapter of my mail order bride fic, though. None of my multi-chaptered fics have been updated in over a year. That's bad, and I'm trying very hard to remedy it. Think good, writing-friendly thoughts for me, okay?

I have a date with Richard tonight. I know, I know. I'm weak and cowardly. But I'm also hungry, and I don't want the Hot Pocket in my freezer. >.>

I do not want to go to work. Weekends are too damned short. Especially when we have two soccer games instead of the usual one, and Meredith insists we MUST go to the mall to find shoes to go with the outfit she wants to wear Monday (then doesn't actually wear). Grr.

I've decided that I like Richard less and less as time goes on and must now work up the energy/courage to break things off. At least I can honestly say I am busy next weekend. James has asked me to go to the movies on Saturday. Richard spends Sundays with his daughter, so I don't have to worry about that day.

Meredith's game next weekend is at 9:00 Sunday in bloody Maryland. Since she has to be there at 8:15, I'll be leaving home shortly after 6:00 to get her there in time. Bah.

Gripe gripe gripety gripe.

I've also decided that I need to exercise. I decided that before, but I'm planning to actually do it this time. I'm tired of my knees and feet hurting. I'm tired of being this fat. A little pudge is ok, but I'm not pudgy. I'm fat. I need to lose about 100 lbs. in total, but my first goal is to get back down to a weight that starts with a 1. The fact that Mer's not-quite-an-uncle Steve's mom died this weekend from illness related to her obesity probably has something to do with this re-determination.

Like my Alice icon? I know, I know, her hair isn't right, but she was pale and waifish, and it has that whole red/white/black theme going on. Also, if you look carefully, I colored her eyes to show that she's not thirsty right now. *cough*

I'm getting close to the end of Eclipse, but I'm not quite done yet. Bella is still irritating me. Or, I should say she's irritating me again. I wasn't as upset with her in New Moon as some of you indicated you were. Anyway, I'll write up my thoughts after I finish the rest of this last book.

Speaking of books, I don't think I ever shared my thoughts on City of Bones. I won't go into the plot, but basically... )

I've gotten lots of mail in the last couple days! I got TWO cards and a totally cute DRABBLE from Emmie, and letters from Cyn and Gina! I've said it before and I'll say it again - my friends ROCK!

Oh, and I'm feeling better now. Thank you for all the well wishes! *reiterates bit about friends who rock*

On a sad note, I've decided to put down my handsome black kitty, Jinx. His mobility has gotten really bad due to his neurological problems. It's time. He's not in pain, and he's generally a pretty happy cat, but he doesn't really walk anymore. He pulls himself along with his front paws most of the time. He has a very hard time navigating the litter box, and often falls back out - right through his mess. He has thyroid issues. The fact that he's not sick or in pain makes it really difficult, though. I wouldn't feel as guilty if he was miserable. So, that's happening on Thursday. James is coming out to see him tomorrow. I haven't told Mer yet, but I will tonight. I will miss my little dude. He's a pretty awesome cat.

So tonight I've got to clean up a bit around the house. It's embarrassingly unchanged since James was last over - a month or two ago... I also need to do laundry.

Also, later this evening I'm having dinner with Richard. And I need to go buy cat food and milk. *sigh* I'm glad Mer's practice was cancelled!
