I came into my office early this morning. Had to run a defrag and scan on the external hard drive I use in my payjob. It’s been dragging and slowing progress.
So, I decided to write for a little while since the kids are still asleep and it’s quiet. These defrags/scans take forever!
Apparently, I write well in the early morning hours, too, because I cleared 2000 words already!
My mother-in-law just came by, it’s nearing ten in the morning and I’m still in a robe. See? I write and just disappear. Was loving the flow of words so much, I probably would have sat here, petrifying, until I’d written half the book. But I have to do the other work for awhile. Sigh.
I’m in my robe, my mother-in-law, who thankfully knows I’m not a layabout was here and as she arrives, I’m dragging a huge chair onto my front porch. The Special Olympics people are coming through the neighborhood today, collecting donations, and I have a bunch of clothes. I don’t know if they’ll take this big chair, but I’m hoping. I’m tired of my hubby griping about it. So what if I bought it three years ago with plans to recover it? So what if it’s currently a hideous peach color? If they don’t take it, I’ll drag it back inside. I admit it. I’ll never have it recovered. I’m too interested in other things. <g>
I have a point believe it or not. Thing is, dragging that chair onto the porch with five trash bags full of clothes, meeting my MIL in my robe… I suddenly realized I was confirming my neighbors’ fears.
Yes, a crazy hermit who never gets dressed lives here.
You see, I had to write this morning to make up for being bad last night. I was all jacked up worrying about my son who failed to check in properly while going to the movies with friends. I couldn’t concentrate, so I tried out this game I saw on Lilith Saintcrow’s blog. Oh man, this game is highly addictive. I keep trying the different virus, parasite or bacteria strains, keep changing up their tolerances or their symptoms and no matter what I do, one small part of humanity manages to survive! Since I’m into sharing, here ya go.
<big, evil, wicked grinning here> Pandemic 2
Normally, I won’t let myself play until the work is done, but I’m a worrier. The now-grounded boy will remember to call me with movie times from here on out.
And okay, I wasn’t only playing a game… Heather reminded me how much I love this movie, Hot Fuzz, so I was watching it again.
It’s violent, hilarious and has some of the best dialogue!
Since this morning was make-up, I still have to make my goal tonight. I will not play Pandemic 2. I will not play Pandemic 2…
