The listress strikes again...

I am working on the final pages of my MS and will be subhuman until Friday. Therefore, I am ripping Erin's good idea (though, um, coughcough, I don't let a month go by between posts...) and making a list of what's on my mind that does not involve the book I am working on (yes, I get a little thrill every time I say those words...try not to hold it against me).

* I feel guilty about neglecting my friends and family for the past few months.
* I had a dream last night that Michael and I went whitewater rafting in Germany and he was in the shower with our tour guide for over an hour and when I finally got in there was no hot water left.
* I'm really excited about using the new pencils and sketchbook I bought in Savannah over the weekend. They're sitting on my kitchen table waiting for me to finish all this word business.
* If I ever wrestle in Jell-o, the flavor of Jell-o I would choose is lime.
* In yoga class on Monday, I stepped out to use the ladies room because our instructor made us do too many sun salutations in a row and I was bored.
* It's time to start riding my bicycle to work again.
* I bought two summer dresses on Bluefly last week - same designer, same dress, but one is blue and the other is black.
* What's in my fridge right now: Crystal Light lemonade, an avocado, half a package of wheat pita bread, four cheese sticks, three cans of beer, a bottle of prosecco, and three-fourths of a bottle of Bailey's. Alcohol to food ratio seems odd, since I haven't had a drink since April of 2005.
* Also in relation to previous item, I finally bought my Mr. Bento, but realized I must cook (or at least shop for food regularly) in order to have things to put in it to take to lunch.
* Finally, my nomination for best speech in a television drama goes to Grey's Anatomy (if you haven't been following here, I got hooked on seasons 1 and 2 on DVD for a while) for this gem: "Okay, here it is, your choice... it's simple, her or me, and I'm sure she is really great. But Derek, I love you, in a really, really big pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me." ~Meredith Grey


  1. Liked the list, but love that quote from "Grey's." I know the show is sappy and full of drama, but don't we all need that in our lives? At least for great speeches like that?

  2. I know! I didn't watch it for the first two seasons because I thought it would be one of those crap shows like Desperate Housewives, but a few friends got me hooked and I think I spent two straight weekends watching the first two seasons (and weeping at the end of most of the episodes). I think the writing is excellent. I haven't watched season 3 yet (I will when it comes out on DVD), but I've heard it isn't quite as good as 1 and 2.

  3. oooh, i love that grey's moment. i've been watching it online lately though b/c i seem to always be working thurs nights. i highly suggest the online tv watching b/c it cuts down commercial time by about 15 minutes:)good luck with the "word stuff"!

  4. I don't "let" a month go by. A month GOES BY and all of a sudden, my hair's an inch longer, I haven't eaten dinner for five days and I'm starting to see spots from staring at two computer screens all day.


    I'm totally not coming to visit now.

  5. Dear lord, I hope Lukas was cute. Thank your subconscious for thinking of me...
