Today is one of those days that I wish I was filming so I would have evidence for either the commitment hearing or to use as evidence when I present my case that I am actually crawling out of purgatory.
My head is full of blurry and I overslept because the cat that usually stands on my sternum until I wake up decided she would sleep sweetly next to me and pat me on the face till I went back to sleep. I had to write at least 2000 words on story 4 on this set so I can stay on schedule, so after searing my lips on my coffee, I went into my office where I promptly kicked over my water glass and knocked my speakers off the desk. This created a veritable hedgehog of cords(Hedgehogs are actually quite neat and fun loving. I bet that’s why you’ve never seen them on an episode of Hoarders. Researching that bit of information is actually the best part of this not so great day.)
I slogged through the story (bet you’re dying to read it now!) and got about halfway done. I didn’t get waylaid by writer’s block. I was stopped by writer’s slack.
So what do I do when I slack? I read XO Jane !
Today my slack was rewarded by this article
There is no way I could describe this article with the fabulous it requires, but if you have ever, ever, ever been on an online dating site you will really enjoy this. It made me laugh out loud.
I really needed this laugh because I had a phone interview with Varsity Tutoring. This is a college-prep type tutoring service, that quite frankly I had forgotten I had submitted an application to.
A word about jobs and dating sites that have taken me by surprise: In the aftermath of the bomb that was dropped upon me like so many jagulars (Katboy impregnating someone who I wouldn’t like anyway even if the situation was not what it, well, is.) I filled out a couple of online dating profiles. (Because when you are feeling low, you can always get lower. To the windows, to the wall . . . I shouldn’t like this song so much.) I also have filled out profiles and applications for just about everything I can possibly do in the freelance world.
The interview went ok, even though the interviewer’s phone kept cutting out. I did get the “Who is this freak?” vibe from the interviewer. I don’t know how that is going to turn out, but right now it looks like the entire month of June is going to be a whirlwind of ghostwriting and racing from place to place to coach actors. Wall to wall crazy.
I did get a bit distracted by the 9-5 diet. It is the newest diet sensation. (I would say craze, but the z is sticking on my keyboard.) I did a little research because I do want to shake things up and kick my actual diet around, I was hoping to see if there was any evidence to support the theory that eating for only 8 out of the 24 hours a day actually works.
I ran across this article:
The best part of his was the Doctor’s name: Doctor Panda.
Really. What’s better than Doctor Panda?
A neat hedgehog.
And We’re back.
