So I was…”spoken” too today at work about saying the word hell. It was actually more the phrase, “what the hell are you doing here?” And granted out of context it does seem inappropriate for a workplace….if it wasn’t spoken in a joking, excited manner. But “hell” is inappropriate work language and I best make sure I remove it from my vocabulary…Now I have the immature urge to say hell in every other word…but I’m too old to sink down to that level..
hell, hell, hell, hell, hell, hell, hell,hell, hell, hell, hell, HEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
Ahhh….anyway today marks one week away from FB and life isn’t as melodramatic as it once was. Granted the first 5 days were spent in a cold-induced, sleep-deprived daze of work and Nyquil, but I’m actually in a good mood and a little more relaxed. I don’t know if it is because I’m not trolling through fb wishing my life was different, or if it is because within the week I realized how little I cared about the crap that surrounds Facebook. Might be because I’m no longer sick and my head doesn’t feel like it is filled with sludge.
Today I was able to roll around my original fiction piece that I have been working on and off for the last year or so. I had hit a rut with it and pushed it aside to focus on my memoir, but now I have time to devote to each, which is nice. Although my friend would question how I could call myself a writer if it takes me 3 hours to write one sentence. One of my favorite quotes about writing is
What no wife of a writer can ever understand is that a writer is working when he’s staring out of the window. ~Burton Rascoe
I’m the queen of zoning out, so I guess it would be safe to say that I am a writer…and I might be discovering a hidden a.d.d. issue….I dunno I just feel sorry for my future wife or husband.
By the way, is anyone else extremely disappointed in Netflix? Although I am grateful to have full access to some of my favorite movies (Overboard, Baby Boom, Practical Magic) and have gotten the chance to see some B and C movies I may not have otherwise seen (Room in Rome is definitely …interesting) I wish that Netflix wasn’t so lacking…..although watching the train wreck that was Grease 2 has given me plenty of amusement (don’t hate, it is my guilty pleasure and Cool Rider is my favorite song). (AS CORRECTED BY NICOLE)…see what happens when I write at 4am ^_^
Damn I’m boring hehehehe
So to conclude the first week of facebook freedom, what I have learned is that I am a space case, I have no life since my work hours are from 4pm-midnight so all I have to look forward to is Netflix and writing, and that Grease 2 really was so bad that it is good.
What is your guilty pleasure? (besides reading the mindless drabble of a bored 24 year old?) I’m off to listen to the thunderstorm that is currently rattling my house and hope that the rain will lull me to sleep, or at least gives me a good idea for my novel.
I want a coooooool rider

I have so many guilty pleasures but I’m with you on the ‘Grease 2 was so bad that it’s good’ bandwagon 🙂
I’m glad you’re doing well without FB drama. Too many people get caught up in very insignificant crap on FB. May as well re-name it Facebook High School.
Hugs to you, sweetie 🙂
And now I have Smooth Rider stuck in my head! “I need a smoooooth rider, a smoooooth rider”
LOL it’s actually Cool Rider, but I’m not going to condemn you for its. Even thought I really hate Grease 2 but I love Cool Rider and Girl for All Seasons lol. Glad you’re feeling better love. 😀
