This week of stress and no sleep has finally taken toll.

To go or not to go?
I'm looking at the bed, my freshly cleaned AO, hear the dishwasher happily humming, and seriously thinking I need to stay here tonight. Arghhh. Nooooo. I think this is just another hermit's way of getting out of being somewhere else. Which is FINE. Of course, it's not healthy for me to be with me, myself and I solomente uno for lengthy periods of time, because WE all agree that staying home good; going elswhere bad!

LJ Cut feature really works, pee-pal!!!
USE IT. GAWD. I don't wanna be all crazy, but being the word Nazi I am, the eye-strain from leeeeeengthyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy posts which I'm sure writers thereof thought clever, were so wearying that I'm seeing two of everything. WOW. MAYBE MY CHECKING ACCOUNT DOUBLED, TOO! Yeah heh...keep dreamin', vite gul. Don't get me wrong -- I enjoy reading these because they are on my friend list; unfortunately for some, however, I've chosen really bright colors (matching their journals mostly) to go with thier posts. My eyes are screaming for help right now, and I cannot for the lifeeeeee of me find my glasses (yeah, I wear 'em...so take it easy. Don't all nerds wear glasses?!). My sexay pair of spectacles were stepped on and never replaced by the evil-doer who broke 'em. I want that pair back. Grrrrrr.

Every day...every day...every day...every day I write the book
Seems that way, doesn't it? You'd think I'd try to scare up a book, or another short poem to score a quick $1k or so, but oh no; I write for free. Just ask my real life friends, particularly those who call me up, desperate, stroking me, and begging for help with a title for this, or editing that, or redesigning this and that...I think I should at least put a sign in the front proclaiming: Will write for free; sucker on board. This gives me pause, and makes me wonder why I can't say no, when the very people who call are paid to do this?! I'm gonna put my foot down (on a very sensitive body part) the next time one of 'em has the nerve to ax me. :)

Raw throat; not a good sign a-tall
I think all that yappin' during my meeting/interview thing has killed my throat. That, or the fact that I left BOTH windows open last night, all night, like some doofus who's never had a sinus infection or strep throat. Duh. I'll be on yet another Z-pac if I'm not careful. *cough* <---see? for effect, and proof that it's so sore *whine*.

Yeah, yeah...I am that girl from the commercial
Ummm K? That was two years' ago. How in the Sam Houston can locals remember a commercial -- which was uber boring -- from that long ago?! C'mon. No more "I KNEW I'd seen you from somewhere" mails. And oh no! I also did a couple of car commercials!! The NERVE of me, making money with my mouth. Hahaha. Yeah, there are a few others you might've seen me yappin' in...but that was his-story. No more in-your-face work for me. I've learned my lil lesson. You could've seen me in magazines (hell-o...my headshot's used all over the state, and for years, nationally -- this includes a few for ad pics -- so I'm sure I look familiar; kinda like Whoopi Goldberg looks familiar, too. ACH). And in here, of all places, you would think that no one would recognize. Especially with my clappy icons. :) Heh.

I think I'm falling in bed again. All 2,000 body parts are screaming for relief, I don't see any head-rubbing devices, and at least my comfy bed has a heating blanket nestled between the sheet and comforter *sigh of relief*.

Boi, alles.

But if you don't watch it, I'll call you collect AND late for dinner. Heh. Got the veggies cookin' as we speak. I figured it was time to do something good for my body this week. Eeks.

Minnie Prill!!!!
Terri? I found your site while doing a check for your last name thinking perhaps you still use it. I'm Minnie Prill, from Nellingen. We worked together but I don't know if you remember me.

The reason I mailed you once I knew this was you was because I'm in Florida at a Poet's convention sitting in the crowd, and you want believe this, but T.L. Bastedo's poem was read by some older guy, a poet, who said he read it in your absence. Did you know that you came in the top three of this contest? I almost passed out terri, because I haven't seen or heard a word from you in so many years. Then I searched and found you. Damn girl, you came in the top thre. Did you know you cant win the grand prize without being here??? It was beautiful. I didn't know you wrote poetry! Why aren't you here?

Anyways I was so shocked. I mailed you so if you get weird mail its just me. I was so happy to be able to find you. Do you ever hear from any of our group any more? Catch me up on your life! If its half as interesting as in Europe, than I want to know everything!

I love you !!!!

OH MY GOD. I have been looking all over the ever-lovin' planet for you for about, ohhh seven years?! I actually deleted the mail, since it didn't look familiar (plus the name was alien to me). I am so happy that you're contactable! LOL!!! This is more exciting than that poetry thang!!

I'm mailing you my numbers, snail mail, etc. etc. I wrote your number down (undeleted your mail, too...hahaha). I cannot WAIT TO TALK WITH YOU! When will you be back in Hawaii? Did you submit a poem for that contest? I can't BELIEVE you're THERE and now HERE!!!!!!!!

How exciting! I actually have your name along with several others on a reunion website (told ya! I've been looking for you for years). After we lost touch, and I was in L.A., I honestly kept up with NONE of our old friends. Mike and I broke up (sad face). It was a good thing, though. He and I still keep in touch (in fact, he REfound me, too, about three months' ago...I'd been married before that).

You have a BABY. THAT IS SO WONDERFUL!! She's absolutely beautiful, and looks like her mommy. So where did you meet Rick?!? He's a cutie!!! Ok ok ok. I'm so excited! I'm writing you a lengthy mail; when you get home (or get my number), we'll have a nice, long talk.

WOW. This is the BEST thing that's happened in...er...years!!! I'm SO HAPPY to hear from you!!

Love yas mucho!!!!

P.S....The irony! And everyone said "get rid of Bastedo"
I've been having a lil trouble with some online fruitloops (yeah, it's the sameeee as it used to be, only sneakier, cowardly technology enables them to 'hide'). Many people suggested that I go friend's only with my journal (and also my AOL name). I've tried to explain a MILLION times to different people that the very reason I keep this name (you remember Bob, too...! how funny) is so that people just like you, Mike, Michael, Angie, Bethany, The Greg and everyone who we knew in Europe and elsewhere would be able to FIND me. Ha! I was right! I'm so glad I didn't listen to those who wanted me to be obscure with the name 'Bastedo' (even if Bob IS a...Bastedo...hahaha). I figured sooner or later you guys would catch up with me (or I, you). HA! I'm so happy...I feel like a schoolgirl! LOL.

Note to those well-wishers who told me to hide my name, etc....this is exactly why I won't hide the name. Of course, this isn't my legal name. Pffft. But it IS a searchable, previous name, and one which had a lot of friends and many readers once upon a time.

:) :) :) :) :) :) I knew 'Bastedo' would pay off some day! I've gotten a lot of e-mail too from others (but I don't think you know any of them except Angie).

You were right afterall! I'm glad your friend found you, and that's so awesome that your friend heard your name at the poetry convention. CONGRATS AGAIN!!!!!!

It's just weirrrrrrrd...but a happy weird THIS time :)
Ah! Were you one of the ones who told me to get rid of it? LOL.

And HOW WEIRD IS IT that Minnie was at the convention?! LOL. Actually, she's there with her husband who placed, but didn't win. They are taking their first vacation alone since bambino came along *grin* (got her on the cell phone right now).

Yayyyyyy! I'm not gonna say anything bad about BOB Bastedo (and no...don't make any B.O.B. references, either)...I have a feeling he reads this, too (his sister does). But I knew this would be a way to keep up with worldwide buddies, and show 'nuff, it's working. :)

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.
