I took a day job recently. Add that to all the weird freelancy stuff that I do and I find I have very little time for some of my favorite things like blogging, craft projects; watching back episodes of Firefly, Lost or Spaced; reading or, you know, sex.

Money is a good thing. I keep telling myself that. I keep reminding myself that I enjoy...

I leave the house dressed as a pirate approximately once a week. At first, the new neighbors just nodded and smiled. I mean, it was the first week of October. It's possible that I just had a really early Halloween party to go to.
The next week, they said something, "Another costume party?"
"No," I replied. "Why?" They indicate my costume and I reply...

I keep getting tagged by people who requested 25 random things of me. I put it off. I moaned and fussed. I got over it. So...here goes:

1. I hate driving. I always have. My parents basically had to beg me to get my learner's permit and when it expired, they begged me to get it again.

2. I write approximately 10,000...

This has got to be one of the best costumes I have seen yet! You also fit the part well. So used to same old costumes or ideas of three made into one mess of a disguise! Nice job!

I desperately want the new Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary! Forty years in the making, it is the first historical thesaurus to include almost the entire vocabulary of English, from Old English to the present day. Oh Lord. I'm a little wet just thinking about it. Why, oh why must it be almost $400?

Of note, it contains synonyms (with dates!) of...

I saw that while in Borders the other day (along with its sister Dictionary) and was a bit irritated at its pricing as well. Quality reference books should be gifted by the Governments of the world. Then again that would go against the 'keep 'em dumb' policies most gov's have.

Week two of unemployment and I am in good spirits, but terribly, terribly distracted. I told myself that I would spend at least 4 hours writing today. I promised myself not to open my email or do a "quick check" on Twitter, Facebook, SG, etc until afterl those 4 hours were done. I showered, brewed myself a great big cup of coffee, whipped up some...

Well, drat. As of Sunday night, I am unemployed. My magazine has folded and while it is not a terribly great surprise, it was almost 4 years of blood, sweat and tears.

Ah well, on to new horizons. I'll be working from home and finishing a book I was commissioned for (yay for sidework!). So I'll be saving on gas and laundry soap...

Another Friday working from home and I am beginning to think that I am brilliant for deciding to keep that regular schedule. I get so much more accomplished. Today has been nearly perfect. Slept until 10ish. Had a sandwich with bierschinken for lunch (Yum!) and I am off to see the premiere of Storm Large's one-woman autobiographical show at Portland Center Stage tonight. I...
