I have a massive crush on Lesley Kinzel. I am totally crunching on Ryan Gosling. I am deeply in love with Aisha Tyler.
I know that was an odd way to open what I was hoping would be some sort of literary respite from the other stuff I’m writing today.
I tried to calm myself by taking an extended coffee break. I enjoyed a lovely iced latte with extra shot. (Why, yes, yes I do know how coffee works SO KEEP THE SNIDE REMARKS TO YOURSELF!!!!)
I am having some abject panic moments today because I have ten days to crank out five stories. I also have to get my verbal act together for the next rapidly approaching deadline. I also have to vacuum, change the sheets, do the dishes, teach some children and try to be a hard ass because they really need it. I’m finding it very difficult to make sense and stay focused.
So what do I do to try to regain my will to create?
That’s right, friends and neighbors, I go to XO JANE!
Lesley Kinzel is responsible for some of my very favorite articles. I strongly suspect that my internal monologue is the Greek Chorus for hers. My new favorite thing that La Kinzel has said, “If obesity is a disease, can I call in fat?” as in, “Oh,Mr. Boss, I can’t come to work today, I’m too fat.”
I don’t think I really need to explain why I’m crunching on Ryan Gosling. I’ve always thought he was pretty in that slightly awkward, secretly cool boy next door. And even though he’s let the rest of the world in on his secret coolness, you just know he’d much rather be curled up on the couch watching a movie with you.
And Aisha Tyler.
I’ve always adored her from afar. She was a grounding influence on the first season of Ghost Whisperer. (Yes, I did just read that sentence. Don’t judge me. Try spending a day walking around in my brain and see what sticks to you.) Her stand-up comedy is hilarious. Her voice over work on Archer is inspiring. (I’m heartbroken that there is absolutely no way that I can afford to go see Archer live this weekend. I can’t spend the cash, or the time.Thanks, AWT!)
I have now stumbled on her podcast, Girl on Guy. It’s very interesting and her interview with Joe Manganiello is very informative, especially for the young actor, or possibly, the manager/assistant/ mom of a young actor.
So that was about four hundred words to answer the question that nobody asked, “What’s on your mind?”
I think the planet knows better than to ask .
