That crazy thing you do

So the writing thang has picked up big time; but freelance isn't going to cut it. I do have a weekly gig with a national publication and have to get yet another professional headshot. Now, I REALLY wish I hadn't cut my hair. Meh! I also have to give a bio, and am not sure how much I want to include, now that I found the scary look-up-anyone-anywhere website that will never be mentioned.

Have reconnected with my best friend in high school and find myself so much happier overall. OMG so funny. Time has been kind to him, as well. But so far, he and I are the only two I've seen who age hasn't completely ravaged in our crew. Gotta love those reunions. Or not.

Today started off gloomy, windy and dark, and now the sun is shining from out of nowhere. WTH MOTHER NATURE? This ain't Europe. Keep our weather consistent!

Got my income tax back THANK GOD which means yay, we can eat for another month. O.o Jobs are slim pickins around here, and I suppose I should be glad for the freelance, even if it does blow my cover (or at least one of 'em). Ah well. The subject is something I'm familiar with and good at writing so all should be well, as it won't attract riff raff (stalker/readers not included). Let's just hope they don't follow me that far on the web. One can dream.

Now I've gotta get busy with dinner and crap. I've lost my ring and am in a semi-panic. I never lose that ring. I have a feeling it's gone forever. And no, I don't want to hear comments on the ring, kthnx, so I'll screen comments (if anyone just feels that urge, I'll help ya).

I'm just sayin'...

Get your own sayin's...this one is irrefutably mine and has been written and printed this way in my stuff for MANY years (proof of first instance...gotta love the law). Nothing wores than a no-talented, affection-starved plagiarist.

That's that.

So did you connect with your friend or did they contact you? I'm always afraid to be awkard and all that... Hey, I know it's been decades, but I found you out of the blue, and it's weird...

Actually, I put word out about high school buddy and we've picked up where we left off. It's great having his sense of humor in my life :)

Also, Mike Craine and I are communicating (finally found him at that scary website). Life's just peachy as it pertains to reunions. Usually, my friends find me, but in these two cases, they couldn't but I /did/. lol I have zero shame in contacting old friends! No sense in being shy :)

I'm glad the writing's picked up, but I hope you can get some better paid gigs!

A lot of it depends on me, actually. Eeks.

Any chance you could e-mail me the "scary" site URL? I haven't heard of/seen this site. Just wondering exactly whom I could do a search on and what it'll show. (Not to use on you, obviously.)

As I've already said to a couple of friends, I'm not sharing something so...evil. No website should contain that much information on anyone and I think it's dangerous.
Feb. 13th, 2009 04:24 am (UTC)
Gah! Now I wanna know what/how much it says about ME! (I have *zero* chance that you'd be willing to email me that, I am sure.) But you are right....no site should even have that.

This is, again, my journal and it has nothing to do with /you/...it's about ME and PERSONAL CHOICES. I've had TOO MANY people backdoor me after repeatedly saying "I'm not saying". As a Christian you should've accepted this the first time I said it, and not made me repeat this breach a second time.
Feb. 14th, 2009 06:25 pm (UTC)
I knew you wouldn't, and I wasn't pressuring you to. I *did* accept it the first time, so my reply was only in jest....but since nobody understands or "gets" my sense of humor, I apologize for the misunderstanding. However, bringing Christianity into it? I don't get that part. (And no, I'm not expecting or requesting an explanation for that either. I really don't care.)
Feb. 14th, 2009 09:38 pm (UTC)
It would be in REAL bad form to deny Christianity at this point in life, imho. If you give it some thought, it would make TONS of sense. You shouldn't have asked me period. I've said this, actually, three times (four) now.

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.
