I’ll Do What I Can So You Can Be What You Do

So I’ve been trying this thing where, instead of making a list of all the stuff I have to do every day, I’m making a list of all the stuff that I actually DID. Sometimes, this actually works.

The weather’s really nice and I’m kind of pissed off about it because it’s not going to be nearly so warm tomorrow.

I just finished The Namesake, by Jhumpa Lahiri. I like her a lot and really enjoyed this novel, and recommend it highly. Now I’m reading Diary, by Chuck Palahniuk, and am finding it necessary to read only a few pages at a time or else I start getting all depressed, and I’m not even a hotel waitress with a comatose husband so what the hell?

I have “Coast to Coast” by Elliott Smith stuck in my head.

I have a sort of writer’s block that’s really pissing me off.

I owe emails to about five people that I really like and want to write to, but I also have writer’s block about email, as it turns out.

I really need a haircut, like whoa.

I had Chinese takeout for lunch and I can smell it in the trash can and ew. It wasn’t even that good when I was eating it, but I figure that Balance Bars are not quite a balanced diet, no matter what they’re called, and that I should actually get lunch once in a while.

I just wanted to share.

  • Usually if I eat lunch at my desk, when it’s time to throw all the trash away I throw it in the trash in the copier room. Not that that’s a much better place to throw my smelly lunch trash, but as long as it’s not sitting under my desk everything’s A-OK.

  • “finding it necessary to read only a few pages at a time or else I start getting all depressed, and I’m not even a hotel waitress with a comatose husband so what the hell?”

    The sign of a writer who knows how to suspend disbelief in a reader. Unlike myself, writing in sentence fragments.

    One book that would cheer you up is “As a Man Thinketh…” though don’t be put off by the gender-centristic title, as it is from the 19th century.

    Just finished reading about Teddy Roosevelt in “Theodore Roosevelt: A Strenous Life”, and found out he was a leader in promoting Women’s Sufferage and other women’s rights. That and supporting child labor laws, anti-trust bills, national parks, and similar progressive causes raised a lot of hackles in the Republican Party, hence he started his own Bull Moose party. It was not unusual for him to give 20 speeches a day during campaign season; what a driven, principled example to aspire to.

  • I have writers block today too! I’m trying to get myself out of it by leaving comments and such, but no luck so far. Boo.
