194. Conversations from the weekend

Monday, October 17, 2005

Some amusing conversations that have taken place in my household this weekend. Mostly between my brother and myself.

Brother: Sis, I threw the milk out. It was two weeks past due, and when I went to drink some it kind of clumped out.
Me: (pause, blink, stare) UH ... didn't dad eat cereal this morning?
Brother: .... yeah?
We both pause, blink, stare!
Me: ... Oh my God.
Brother: Let's not tell dad.
Me: Good idea!

And just today.

Me: Did dad ever mention anything about the milk?
Brother: He asked, and I told him, and then he mentioned feeling sick.
Me: Well ... (laughs)

More from today:

me: I don't feel well. Do I sound sick to you?
Brother: Well, you sound congested and like you're not feeling well. Are you getting sick?
Me: (pause): Oh that was smart! I just asked you if I sounded sick dummy!
Brother: Oh ... yeah you do.

So, yes I took another Sunday off. I might start doing that every week. Gives me a little break. and last night, I did feel like I was catching something. The flu is going around here and everywhere. My brother woke me up this morning because he was feeling off too. So I slept in later than normal, dragged myself out of bed at 1:30 this afternoon. I go to bed after 5am every morning, so I sleep in. Some days I'm up at 11am and others at 1pm. All depends on what is happening.

Things here are piling up again. Just received my review assignments for over at ERRW. Two e-books. One is quite short, and the second is a little bit longer. Both due at the end of the month. Still have my review assignment for over at Diva's too. I'm also one of the interviewers on staff over at ERRW too, and my first interview assignment will be assigned some time tonight. This is something new, so I'm still figuring things out there.

Still not working on anything fiction wise, and now I'm starting to feel a bit guilty. The muses just aren't communicating, and there is so much going on in other parts of my writing life. I don't want to overdo things and stress myself, especially if I'm already coming down with some thing. I'll have to see how things go this month. I might jump back into the gear of things next month. Get some things done. things also slow down TV wise in December, so I'm hoping to kick out some writing over the holidays too. See how things go.

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Have a great night everyone.
