It's been raining all day and I want to go to bed. Fall rains are different than any other. It's cold, everything is damp, and it's just a miserable feeling. Winter is around the corner and fall rains are just speeding up the process. My fall leaves have fallen. Now my backyard is covered with yellow, brown and red wet blobs. Both Molly and I are slipping and sliding outside. All in all, not a great feeling. I actually can take the cold, I just hate the wind. "Lord knows when the cold wind blows it'll turn your head around." <--- now who knows THAT song?!?! I was able to write today. Tonight I'm just zapped. It literally is 8:30 and I'm seriously thinking of throwing in the towel and calling it a night. Besides, my phone is almost out of juice and I need the hotspot to finish this
Guess who is pretending to work? THIS GAL! Having my laptop open at my desk is a dead giveaway but I've discovered that if I look like I'm not guilty and look like I'm concentrating hard on something, my boss doesn't question me. Tee hee. This is our busy time, so I need to give them the 8 hours minimum, but I get here very early in the morning and I think I can sneak a minute or two for writing. We don't have the internet at work. My boss thinks some hacker is going to want our stuff so we have 3 stand alone computers for us to surf. What he fails to realize is that we all have smartphones, hotspots and laptops. We would actually get more done if we did have the internet at our desks, but he believes we will waste time shopping, playing games and facebooking. We do that now. The only difference is that we are hunched over 2" x 3" screens like blind moles trying to read a font that is the size of the thickness of our fingernails instead of sitting like modern man at our desks with a human size keyboard and glare reduction screens. Sigh. At least we have e-mail at our desk. I'm kind of excited to welcome 1991
to the hours of 7 to 5! apparently I am capped on how many characters I can have in a single blog. Still learning...
I did hunker down and write today. Skipped breakfast and dinner. Had lunch only because my gf took me out. I have to confess, the daylight savings fall back really screwed me and Mols up! She was looming over me at 4:30 this morning wanting to go outside. Of course, I was up and ready to go by 5 and by about 10:30, I was ready for a nap.
Writing is fun so I'm enjoying that, trying to keep all suggestions in mind. I wonder how much Ali and Bethany are going to change over the next month. I find myself injecting my own personality traits as I try to establish theirs a wee bit better. I think it's interesting how people within the gay community view others around them. As you can probably tell, I suffer from ADD. I don't know if suffer is the right word, but I tend to exhaust all my friends. My thoughts really are random and jump into my head and I can't file them away quickly enough.
I just noticed I can upload videos to my blog! I'm such an amateur! Maybe I'll post videos of Molly. She's the best thing ever! I get so many compliments about her. She's injured right now and we are approaching month 3 of the "Good God please get better" phase. You'll love her as much as I do!
So, I've decided I need a new laser printer, I need to clean my house and do my dishes instead of work on edits. Truth is, the moment I dive in, I'll not come up for air for days. I know that once I get started, I'll forget to eat, sleep, work. Okay, maybe not eat because I can do that on a whim. Plus if my gf comes by and says HEY let's go eat Mexican food, I push her out of the way and hit the car first. And work, well, I can look busy there doing other things. Thank God for the toggle switch... my boss is oblivious. Plus if i give him a genius idea 1x a week, he's happy as a clam. I met my quota this week, so I should be good for a few days there. Maybe there's hope in reaching this deadline afterall!
