Confession Tuesday

This photo is one I took a few weeks ago when I took the kids to the New England Aquarium. I spent more money on parking in Boston than on admission. *sigh* Kids loved the jellyfish exhibits.


I’m shocked that we’re now full force into the holiday season. I mean, Thanksgiving was less than a week ago and already I’m singing Christmas tunes in my head. I must be getting older because I find myself muttering, “Gosh, where has the year gone?”


I’ve been at my current job 6 years, 9 months, and 11 days.


I had to cancel on the workshop I had hoped to attend tonight. Babysitting issues.


A Cave Canem member sent this out on our listserv. This sums up exactly how I feel for not being paid as a writer.


Speaking of writing, I hope the writers’ strike going on in Hollywood and other major cities in the U.S. gets resolved quickly. I’m a fan of the TV shows Heroes and Law and Order: SVU and I have to tell you, I’m disappointed in what I’m seeing. Now I know the studios are pushing product to air the shows already finished. But I’d rather they shelve the remaining episodes than put out a bad product.

Last night’s Heroes episode was so disjointed I got the feeling it was slapped together from leftovers on the cutting room floor. As for tonight’s new L&O, this is the third episode in a row, I believe, in which the main characters get hurt. I mean, in nine seasons Benson and Stabler are super cops. Now, they’re getting stabbed, smashed, and injured by everyone. What’s up with that?

Which is sadder, that I know so much about the shows or that I think of the characters as real people?


Today’s theme song: “She Came in Through the Bathroom Window” by The Beatles. “Sunday’s on the phone to Monday. Tuesday’s on the phone to me. Oh yeah!”

I love that video - that was making me laughing so hard - he is so right, and so right to be so incredulous about it! Writers should be paid NOT ONLY for their actual written contributions, but also for their ideas...

I had a feeling you'd like it!

Holy Sh!t that was funny! "I don't take a piss without getting paid for it!" and "YOU can go to the store and buy it motherf*&$er!!". Brilliant.
