And as always...busy as a bee

There is simply too much going on - or about to occur - to properly update my journal. Perhaps I should simply bullet the items. I don't know why I've been neglecting my journal as much as I have. There's no real reason for it. I'm living my life, and am incredibly busy taking care of it. But none of this excuses me from not journaling.

Here I am, balking. So here's the short list, bulleted and simple:

  • Spent most of today talking with attorney, brother, sister and sis-in-law about my parent's estate and how we need to be handling it. That wasn't fun, and I have a killer headache.


  • Am planning a trip to Fort Jackson to do a story on the "yellow cards". No, don't ask what or why, because that's why I'm doing the story.


  • Finally got the nerve to get a pedicure, and it's loverly. I told the Asian dude to be happy, as he was the only human to ever touch my feet. He said my feet were "so pletty and werr taken care of". lolol :) He was sweet. That led to a three-hour conversation with a woman - a complete stranger - telling me about the horror that is her life, and me trying to help with a little advice. She then told me I was a "gift from God." I felt like a fraud for the rest of the day.


  • We won't get into the spawnlette. I'm dealing with all that as best as I can. Arghhhh.


  • I love my iPod, but I curiously want one of the new Nanos. Why? We might never know.


  • I own WAY TOO MANY movies, and am considering selling them all off in a sale going on at a condo to which I'm affiliated. Too much baggage, those movies.


  • Got a phone call from a LONNNNNNNG ago MP boyfriend who I dated while, ironically, I was stationed at Fort Jackson. SO VERY STRANGE that he even remembered me. Go figure.


  • Scooter. Gonna get one, and save a gazillion $s in gas.


  • Am still losing weight, but gained back two. I'm on a mission now to lose 10 more lbs by the end of next week AND I WILL SUCCEED.


  • What else? The house is getting a thorough once-over on Thursday. Tomorrow, I have one second interview, and another first one. Am aggressively dedicating more time to the outside-the-home job hunt, due to the above-mentioned taking so long, etc. etc.


  • I now I have 14-inch hair. It's absolutely unreal and makes me look like a teenager :) Kinda cool. I was carded buying NyQuil Gel Caps. Go figure.


  • What else? There's plenty; I just don't have time to write it all out, wax poetic, or speak of how much this is my favorite time of the year.


  • I'm participating in Nano this year so during the month of November, keep your hands and feet away. I'll be knee deep in that hoop-la and even have a little plot going on. I'm excited about this :D


  • Apologies to my friends for not reading, either. Again, I've been wayyyyyyy too busy.


  • And that's that for this entry, at least.

    I like bulletized entries - nice and efficient!

    It's efficient right /now/, but in another year, I'll forget details surrounding all of the above. lol :) The conversation I had with the stranger is worth a loooong entry all by itself. During times like these - when I don't journal, yet have time to - I wonder what's going on with me.

    I could easily be losing interest or simply want to break free, eh?

    Thanks :>

    Tell me what movies you're interested in, and I'd bet I have 'em (unless they're sci-fi). :>

    Do you have a list? :D

    (apologies if you DO have a list and I'm just not awake enough to see. AND YES, I JUST WOKE UP AT 2:30. :DDDD)

    My movies are extension. No chick flicks and no sci-fi. Otherwise, I own it, I'm thinking.

    Me neither. I've been looking over my 'quick-jot-it-down-while-it's-fresh' sketch files today, and yeah... something will present itself eventually.

    Love your BatBoy icon, btw.

    I don't know how to START with mine...nor end it, since it's still an open story. Meh! Gimme an assignment!

    I find even a bullet-list is a good aide-memoire when one returns to write out in more detail. Good to read that you're alive and dealing!

    I've been unreasonably busy lately, but worse, just haven't felt like updating. Worried about that one, actually.

    Words.

    Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
    The lady of situations.
    Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
    And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
    Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
    Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
    The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
    I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
    Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
    Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

    One must be so careful these days.
