Absent...

I've gone missing...that's what I told a friend's message machine when she didn't answer her own phone but left a previous message on mine when she called to complain that not only was I not online, I'm not blogging, I'm not on Myspace, I'm not in yoga class, I'm not at the Bistro, I'm not at the Coffee Shop...I'm not answering my phone...so where the fuck am I?

Missing...
Hiding...
Thinking too much most definitely...

And actually I have blogged...I have half a dozen saved as drafts but it seems like what I have to say is too little...or too much...about topics which are so important that they are mind boggling...or so trivial that I lost brain cells writing them.

So today, is Thursday...

I survived the Office Meeting yesterday that almost blew my career because a girl can only hold her tongue so fucking long...and really...I blame it on Sir Hotness because he gave me the power to be ballsy and stand up for myself (thank you for that, love)...BTW...I do still have a career.

I survived Tuesday, a not too eventful day but one that was filled with incredible sadness because I learned a friend has cancer...

I survived Monday...a friend critiqued Sacred revelations and she told me exactly what I needed to fix, though I already knew what needed to be fixed, but hated admitting what I need to do, knowing my editor is going to kill me...but it will be a much better final product...so I will bravely go where no romance writer wants to go...back to the middle of the madness to save not a sagging middle but a middle so full it needs expounding on...ie...add 20K words and we should be good to go.

I need a weekend...and a good book to read.
Or maybe I'll go to a movie...

The movie is gonna win but there are so many to choose from...
In no particular order:
Children of Men ... imagine a world with NO children...
Pan's Labyrinth ... a fairytale for adults
The Pursuit of Happyness ... Hope, Dreams...a little boy too cute for words...bring Kleenex

Beautiful Girl is voting for Pan's Labyrinth Friday night and I'm not telling her it's subtitled.

I've missed seeing you aroung too. I would have told you more about it but I'm at work... all the time. Like your job, but we order take out and I drink so much diet coke there is a hole in my stomach lining.

you know what they say, 10% of the workers do 90% of the work.

Does that make us the most dedicated or the dumbest 10%??
