a compendium of musings and rants from Alison Beightol, who is old enough to know better.

this post is brought to you by the letter E...for eccentric
this apparently has something to do with geometry and ellipses but I want nothing to do with geometry so I am just taking it for face value. I enjoy eccentric people. I consider myself to be one. although sometimes I have to rein it in because in our small town if you are eccentric you get socially shunned. meh. I wouldn't care but since I fear for my child's social acceptance I play along. most of the time. like I said, I enjoy eccentrics. usually they are the most creative and interesting people. Issac Newton was known to be an eccentric. so was albert einstein. go eccentrics.
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.
