What a shitty day this has been. My department's been behind on several milk and dairy deliveries this last week, mainly because I'm the only one that seems to be working on them, and today I pretty much imploded. First thing this morning, I got sent over to work on bread, even though it was already done, and had to mark down prices...

Awwww. I am the prick all of the time. I do well.

Thanks for your comment. I love her. We are not ready to be together. I am a total mess.

I'm wondering at what point the smells of skunk and cow manure actually became pleasant to me. Not that I go around actively sniffing those things, but if I'm driving along a country road and one of those smells actually hits my nostrils, I tend to smile and breathe it in.

Quit staring at me like that.

Maybe after several hours of working...

Cow manure and wood stove smoke always make me think of my grandparents so I really don't mind either one.

Holy shit I did it. After getting some sleep last night, about the first thing I did was turn on the computer, login, and go to a magazine's website and go through the submission process. Granted, the waiting time is about 3 months, so I'll probably have forgotten about it by the time they reply*, but still, I fucking did it.

Of course...

Good for you, keep submitting everywhere you can find.

If I only had some courage.

Today, I've sat ponderously over a submission form for a writing magazine, wanting desperately to send in a short story I had written about a year and a half ago. Unfortunately, I can't seem to take the leap of faith. It's not that I have doubts about my writing or even that I'm afraid of...

Give it a try. "He who does not attempt the feat will always fail in it".

You do open-mic nights? You have plenty of courage.
pomfelo:
I understand. I have a hard time with things people take for granted. Good luck.

It may be disillusioning to some people, but can I give some unsolicited advice? This is what helps me:

SPOILERS! (Click to view)

I know I'm a wee bit nuts. I tell myself that no one looks as closely as I do at myself. I just take a leap of faith, and I realize that even if I fail, no one really cares enough to notice. Possibly the worst advice ever, but that works for me. blush

This morning, when I punched into work, I saw a sign on the bulletin board that said "Please wear a Patriotic shirt for Friday, July 4" and then blah blah blah. I found it kind of amusing on many levels: how can a shirt be patriotic? Do they mean wear a New England Patriots shirt? How patriotic is patriotic? Can a shirt be TOO patriotic...

I would go with a shirt showing George W doing the Statue of Liberty in the ass while smoking the Constitution like a cigar. It would at least show you're keeping up on current events.

Have a great 4th. I'm going on vacation and spending my economic stimulus check in another country. biggrin

I have no idea WHY I thought you were so much older than you are, but I saw the picture you posted on the Silliness "This is me" board, and definitely did a double take.

After some urging by googirl, I decided to put up some of my writing, so here's a draft of a kind of slipstream poem I'm working on. Not sure if I'll stick with this one or not, but any input, or random insults about my writing, would be great.

Holy Fuck! Can it be?! After stumbling around from moving, a bout of the flu, and my own disorganized stupor, have I actually managed to find my way on the Interwebs again? I am shocked. Amazed. Stupified. Awestruck. Dumbstruck. Dumbfound. Slack-jawed. Bewildered. But most of all: giddy, 'cuz now I have my precious internet again, and I have come out of the Industrial Revolution of...

Today, I get my first look at the apartment I plan on moving into. It's in a great location and at a price my peon-wages can afford, though I do have to be more strict with my budget.

Unfortunately, the lease says "no pets," and I'm uncomfortable leaving my cats with my parents, who are the only ones able to take them. It...
