conflicts are tough to map out. I'd rather write a book about the fun and adventures of what she's doing but unfortunately there must be conflict.

thanks to all the great birthday comments and wishes! y'all are wonderful. my annual depression is gone and replaced by the customary optimism that usually follows. no sense dwelling. onward and upward.

it's been a bloody depressing week for me and all related to another year going by and feeling like a major fuck up. I never feel this way at new years only at my birthday. for some reason it makes me take inventory of all the things in my life that never turned out the way I wanted. which is bad because if I don't get it together I am going to be off on Maslows hierarchy of needs.
I'm writing this on the 16th after finishing my last bottle of Two Paddock Picnic Pinot from mad sexy Sam's vineyard and hopefully tomorrow after a day at my thankless job I will be okay for another year. maybe when I wake up I will be in L'occitane with limitless spending privileges. or tiffany & co.
anyway happy birthday to the members of the 7/17 club. you other three how I know share my b-day rock!

etsy is like a vampire for me. a magnificent vampire that sucks my time and money and in return gives me treasures like those above.
the items above are the dancing pearls necklace from fleurdelune jewelry (sigh), victorian lady vampire top hat from newoleansmagpie and the boots are vintage black granny boots from pistol poppy.
everyone should visit these amazing sellers and their treasures. and don't forget to comment on my blog birthday post to be entered in my birthday giveaway!

anyway, this is the easiest decision I've made today. right now I'm wrestling with some serious decisions re: LIM. I'm leaning toward giving up on it. it might be temporary but it might not. I think I've written a book that doesn't really fit anywhere. it's good but not easily categorized. if I do, it will be disheartening but not the end of the world. I'm kind of used to events like that so I'll be able to deal. FUNdraiser will probably be an easier sale anyway. I've gotten some super advice but this is the direction I'm leaning / <--get it?
I wish I could channel Timmy. he makes awesome decisions. he decided to play harder than any other player and then he won the national championship.

last night I must have looked through databases of old gravestones for hours. I am coming down with a dreaded summer cold and am kind of stuck at home. 2 of my friends are at conventions and loving them so I am sending happy karma their way. each deserves the awesome time they are having. hearing their stories made me want to go to dragon con again but alas it is the weekend of the triathlon in september and since I am registered, I am committed to swim, bike and run. which will be equally awesome but in a different way.

Happy Birthday Cori! one day late. I love you!!
now that all my randomness is out of the way...or is it? if you don't hang around very often, you might not know I am training for a triathlon. it's a sprint distance so you can tone your laughing down some. it's in september but it has been kind of funny so far. when people hear I'm doing this, first they look at me like "you're joking, right?" then they look me over head to foot. LOL. I think that's funny. underneath this insulating layer of pudge are some awesome muscles. anyway, yesterday while doing my bike workout, I looked around the gym and discovered that I was the palest person in the joint. by a long shot. I'm talking I looked like chalk compared to these people. so then I thought I'd share my pale weirdness with my friend Suzannah and sent her a text message. however it went astray to someone else. lol. then I resent it and it made it's way to the right person. I'm still trying to talk her into doing the tri with me but so far nothing. oh well. yesterday I rode about 14 miles in 50 minutes which isn't bad. thank goodness for my ipod. I was fading fast until planet rock and the spice girls came on.
p.s. the person who got the stray text message thought it was funny and had a very helpful suggestion.

one of the characters in my WIP is an eccentric. she's quickly becoming my favorite. I identify with her. I'm going to have to be careful not to like her enough to let her take over the story. she dresses fun, has a lot of snappy sayings and really is just her own person despite social dictates. maybe she is me. who knows?
so I'll just run along now. by the way, I'm wearing shortalls with an orange tank top. I also have my purple hair extensions in. hey, I'm at home and free to be me.

I feel extra guilty for being irritated on H.H. The Dalai Lama's 75th birthday. it's probably more bad karma for me on top of the bad karma for smashing a HUGE ASS spider with a broom this morning. it's compounded by the fact that we had coexisted peacefully because I walked right past it 4 times. I didn't have my glasses on so I thought it was either a hairball or something Maddy drew. but when it crawled I panicked.so the wheel turns and I owe more.
but back to my original thoughts...what do you do when you are having bad thoughts or a bad day that's escalating irrationally? just curious.

spent the day cooking and letting my mind wander, which is a good thing. cleared out some things that had been bothering me and recommitted to the triathlon in september. spending time resting was not doing me any good. so back to the gym I'll go tomorrow. also was able to think some more about my WIP. more plot holes got plugged up. it's funny to me how ideas come at odd times.usually they are times that I don't have a way to write them down. amazingly enough I managed to remember what I thought of. now if they work remains to be seen. like I said, since this isn't paranormal it's proving to be a challenge. I wish I could throw in a vampire or at least a ghost. but I guess you can't do that in real life. also I came up with another idea but it will have to germinate a bit more. it might only be suitable for a short story, which I have never written.
