so i've been awake since six a.m. not a clue WHY, nor am i happy about this, as it was my first day to sleep in all week. (okay, for the last few days anyway, i exaggerate.) i'm laying in bed, trying to konk back out, when i realize that... OH MY CRAP!!! IT'S THE SEVENTEENTH! i know that date each month means NOTHING to most of you folk, but for MEEE, it's the deadline that i have to have my article in for the next month's issue of FlavAZ.

welllllllllllll, poop. i don't even have a TOPIC, let alone have something WRITTEN. shoot, what should i do? i've been skinning by every month by pulling an article out of my ass last second for the most part, because i can't be bothered with that 'thinking ahead' dookie that everyone's been talking about.

meh.

once i came to this realization, there was NO going back to sleep.

i also just set off the smoke alarm boiling water for tea. sorry to all of yous sleeping in this house as well. i didn't KNOW i could move that quickly before 8 am on a saturday.

my tummy's been upset and HURTING for days now. grrr. NOT the best thing when you're stuck behind a register at work.

How do you set off the smoke alarm with boiling water? I thought it needed...you know...smoke. *perplexed*

apparently, there was something underneath the burner that was activated with the burner being on high or something.

it wasn't even *THAT* smokey!

and it's yet more evidence that i am a HORRIBLE COOK, if i burn water!

That is such a horrible feeling when you wake up with a shocking realization.

When I get stuck sometimes, I look at the work of other people for inspiration. Many times it opens me to ideas I might never have thought of.

i think i may just cheat again and do an article on something mundane that was released AGES ago and title it my "RETRO REPLAY" column.

that's how i got away with doing 'reviews' on r.e.m. - out of time and bangles - different light.

or maybe i'll do one on 'great album you've never heard!' and do a review of something that virtually no one has heard of, but that i know enough about so as to not have to do TOO much research on, i.e. Jale's So Wound, or Baker's Pink self titled.

hrm.

Album reviews sound good.
I've always wanted to do the whole Coldplay vs. U2 analyzation, personally.

Re: Album reviews sound good.
those are two bands that have always intrigued me, but i don't know nearly enough about them to be able to do anything like that.

i don't know WHY i wait until the last freeping minute. now not only do i have to pull a random topic out of me arse, i also have to hope that i have the creativity to follow through with it!

There's your topic-the unknown hazards of boiling water and how it can affect you! Or maybe that's just more sensationalist journalism...
Wait! How about writing about sensationalist journalism about boiling water dangers? Damn i'm good...

hee hee, maybe if it had music playing in the background, and i could write a synopsis of how music plays the soundtrack in our lives!

since i write music columns and all.

i REALLY need to start planning ahead.

That would make entirely too much sense...
Forgive me for not recalling that you write on music...i go through lots of "not too bright" periods...:-)

what time do you work today? i was trying to convince joel to go through drive thru coffee to visit Kirby and get a breve. Then we'd be in the area and all...

i have to be there at 230. i suppose i should really BATHE and stuff, too.

TOO MUCH TO DO! *quiet sobbing* i have only a paragraph of my article done, and it's HAAARD. i'm doing it on a fantastic band you've probably never heard (on Jale), but it is SOOOO hard to fish up information on a band that broke up 6 or more years ago!

i also need to bathe and make myself pretty because i'm going out with a coworker (deb) for her 21st birthday tonight.

and i wanna play ffxi!! *simpering*

I MISS YOU! i was thinking about how we would laff and laff and laff.. over nothing.

daily life just isnt funny anymore.
I mean, mom laughs at me, cause.. well i'm witty, and i hurt myself a lot (the other day i smashed the door into my cranium, i might have had a concussion) And I laugh at her when she says totally preposterous things.. The other night we had a spider emergency, at like midnight. Joel was awoken by screaming and went to go kill it, I seriously thought the spider had bitten my mother and would have to take her to the hospital.. she was screaming "OW OW OW OW OW!!!! AAAAAUUUGHHHHH"
I think she meant to scream "EW"
eh
Yesterday she told me she liked Miss Mustard (Mythbusters)
its just not nearly as funny as bacci doing anything or crab scuttling (i first wrote crap scuttling, which could be funny too)

I was sitting here wondering if you and Jessie get along as you and i did.. I mean I'm sure you did, but it cant be the SAME... CAN it?

naw. i mean, it's fun living with him and all, it's convenient for us to hang out and such things, and he IS one of my bestest friends of all time.

however, i just remember us sitting here and laughing our ASSES off over something inane. every. single. day.

maybe he and i just have to live together long enough to start picking up on each others' mannerisms as you and i did?

maybe!
oh hey, I got that credit from uh comcast, 30ish is yours, did you want me to apply that to the unpaid phone bill, that i never hit you up for money for? there'd be like $5 left over after I paid the phone bill and could bring that to you if you'd like..

it's SO not the same (to reply to the same comment yet again).. i mean, things are nice and mellow here, jess is the only one out of all of us that ever gets really truly irritated and angry (or rock hard stubborn, really).. i mean, i've seen daniel get angry/irritated once, but you know how often III get hungry.

we have our fun moments, but it was still NOTHING like our relationship as roommates. i miss that very much.

Hope your tummy gets better!

I've discovered that my tummy hurts when I'm upset about something and not dealing with it... or just plain when I'm upset. AND I have discovered a cure. Remember that Woman's Belly Book I gushed about? The breathing exercises and movements in that book took my belly from hurting to happy in one session -- I've used it that way twice so far! There is really something to the idea that your body center holds spiritual power. You should definitely try it out, if you can scrape and afford it.
