Domingo Delicioso #19Posted: September 30, 2007
Hey! Hope your week was great. I am taking another stab at Domingo Delicioso this week…Though I don’t know how my subjects will think about it. It seems those I read regularly have decided to go on hiatus! I mean, Ballpoint Wren, Ms. Karen, RubberCornDog…Gee, it’s like I’m the kiss of DEATH or something. Maybe I just have really bad timing.
My brain is literally empty this morning…of anything creative, anyway. Could it be because I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning reading a GREAT book by Susan Elizabeth Phillips (is there any other kind by SEP?) AIN’T SHE SWEET is the story of Sugar Beth Williams, who returns to her small hometown in Mississippi, the one she ruled as a young Southern debutante. Only now, she’s a mere shadow of the girl she used to be, having learned a lot of hard life lessons. Now, she has to face her well-deserved comeuppance from the enemies she used to call friends. What was that old saying about burning bridges?
Gotta get this one, friends.
I’m sorry this is so BLAH. I guess I have a lot on my mind that isn’t making it through my fingers to the keyboard.
I have a friend who is on his way overseas at just about anytime. I hope he knows how much he means to us. And how often he is thought of and prayed for.
I had a dream Friday night about my Grandfather. First time in I don’t know how long since he’s appeared in a dream of mine. Saturday morning, Granny was taken to the hospital. She’s fine now, but I can’t help but feel a little weird…she IS 96…
This Friday, Toddler turns 3. And we can’t be there. That hurts my heart, and makes me appreciate how much Others who can’t be with the kids they love must feel.
I’ll do better next week, Kids!
ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRG!….THAT did it.
OOOhhhh, dink! I can feel your pain from here!
Algebra wasn’t as big a monster as I thought. Still a beginner class but woot! I’m enjoying it. Almost too much.
Evidently, Chaos has driven you insane. Love Algebra? I’ve heard of people like you, Kristen. Mr. Man is people like you. Me? I can’t even sit still to watch Numb3rs.
I’ve gotten other funny e-mails from readers and never posted them, gotten weird responses on Amazon and never called attention to them, had people say incredibly strange things to me in person and never blogged about it. Why this one?
Well, Jenny, maybe it was because the letter in question was pretty presumptuous in speaking for other people, and it WAS a pretty personal attack…people do such outrageous things sometimes that we can’t help but share!
I am all about the instant gratification; I do not like to wait.
Me too, me too! It’s so HARD to retrain my brain, Lady Shanny!
Music always evokes memories for me, and those memories are woven into the tapestry of my stories. I’m so glad my creative writing teacher was wrong and I didn’t have to choose.
Tracy— It always blows my mind when teachers tell students things like that. I mean, really. My uncle was told by a principal one time that he might as well quit school and get a job. But that uncle is ornery, and was especially ornery in high school! He didn’t quit. And neither did you! Success is the best revenge, I’ve heard it said. Congratulations on your debut novel, TOUCH OF TEXAS.
This week I realized it’s okay to admit…I need to read. I need to read everyday to be happy.
I’ve recently discovered that not reading for a long time affects me, too, Tara. When I pick up a book, it reminds me of what’s been missing in my everyday life. Reading.
