You Have GOT To Be Kidding Me, American Idol, and Friends?

April 26, 2008

What IS with the weather? Someone needs to bitch slap Mother Nature back to reality because I certainly think this cold-hot-cold thing sucks the big one. Seriously. I want the nice warm weather we were having back. It was in the 60s and glorious! Then it shot up to the 70s and got humid (blech) and we got major thunderstorms last night. This morning? FREEZING. Totally windy and cold. Le sigh. I don’t know what’s going on out there, but to me it’s weirdness.

What’s going on in your world?

Is there anyone else out there who thinks that David Cook from American Idol is totally awesome? I love him almost as much as my Daughtry… and that’s saying A LOT. I have to say I was rather perturbed when Carly got the boot this week. I mean, seriously. Jason just sucks. Yes, I said it and I know Amie will disagree as she digs him which is fine. But to me, he sucks and his type of singing is not American Idol material. I really thought he should have been the one to leave this week, but nope. All the little girlies voted for him and thus, he stays. Gah! Me no likie. He should have at least been in the bottom three. Why Syesha was there is beyond me. I thought she was the second best of the night… of course David Cook was first. heh.

Thoughts? Agree? Disagree?

I’m a little sad that someone who I thought was a good friend of mine no longer talks to me like she used to. See, she got her contract, so she’s now NY published and hanging with the big dogs and I’m back here, left behind. It’s sad, but I guess inevitable. I even told one of my other friends that I figured this would happen… and it did. Sadness.

Has this ever happened to you?

I hope you have a great Saturday!!!

When it all falls apart…

March 21, 2008

You know how I seemed so utterly enthused yesterday about writing? Well, I wrote over 2000 words yesterday. In one day. I was so proud of myself.

Only to find out this morning that work had had some sort of server error in the middle of my writing, so it didn’t save ANYTHING of what I did. Nothing. There are a lot of people up in arms this morning about their work not being saved, but I’m DEVASTATED. I had e-mailed myself the document when I was finished, as I always do, only to open it this morning to see THE OLD DRAFT. I had been saving and saving all afternoon and it had saved NOTHING. Freaking. Server.
Luckily I had sent a scene to Marissa to look at, so I have that. And I have the general idea of what happened, so it shouldn’t take me TOO long to rewrite. But egads, what a serious blow. I perfected a lot there, and to have to do it all again… It’s hard and intimidating, when coming in today I was ready and raring on hitting the next chapter.

Sigh. Off to work while I have at least some memory of what I wrote… 😦

I’m annoyed at Zokutou

February 12, 2008

So you see those pretty little bars on the right side of the page that show our word progress? Yeah. If you click on them, they bring you to the zokutou page where you can create your own progress bar. Yay! But when you try to enter anything in, it doesn’t work. Site has apparently been down for weeks and it won’t work.

Not a big deal as I can figure out percents by myself, but I want to change the colors and it won’t let me. Pooh.

Aaand, I’ve gotten back on the writing bus! The total next to my Boss Me book isn’t correct, I’ve added almost 2K to that, but I’m too pissed off at Zokutou to change it and figure out the percents. But those will come.

This unbelievable slowing in my full-time job has given so much more time to get stuff done, and I’m doing it! In addition to writing, I’m also editing up a storm. Also, I’ve started the darn “nesting” period of my pregnancy, which is actually killing me. I want to clean out the guest room, which is going to be the nursery, but it’s filled with 100lb moving boxes that I can’t lift because I’m pregnant. Hubby’s work is crazy right now so he doesn’t really have the energy when he gets home to move stuff around for me.

Anyone have any advice on how I can cope with this crazy nesting thing?

Other than that, the pregnancy is going well (I officially hit the halfway point this week!), and I’m getting WRITING done! Woot!

Word Meter

Does anyone know what the deal is with the word meter not working?  It’s beginning to annoy me.  *G*  Any info is greatly appreciated.

Mother Nature Is MESSED UP

October 7, 2007

I am annoyed, seriously ANNOYED.  It’s 87 in Wisconsin, EIGHTY SEVEN!  It’s OCTOBER for Pete’s sake!  *shaking head*  I don’t know what’s going on, but I HATE the heat.  Last month I had to turn the heat on, and this month I have to turn on the air conditioning.  Oh the insanity of it all!  BAH!
