Hot and humid
Anteann, you inspired us! Yesterday’s final post was an anecdote about my muses, and it’s great to hear what others have to say about theirs!
Time for Convention of Muses, perhaps? :)
My clothes are packed – I just have to pack my “book bag” – the tote with all my writing stuff and the books I want to take with me to read. I’ll do that when I get home.
Wrote, polished, edited and sent two episodes of Widow’s Chamber out last night. I’m caught up on the serials until I get back.
I want to get started on Lighthouse Lady. First, I have to re-read the legend that inspired it.
I keep forgetting to mention that last week, I watched the series Hooking Up, that follows eleven women who try dating via the internet in NYC. I just want to say that I do not think they are a fair and accurate representation of New York women. These chicks wonder why they keep meeting jerks – well, they act like jerks and like attracts like! Most of the women I know who live and work in and around New York actually have lives. Even if single and wanting a relationship, they don’t whine, manipulate, treat people around them badly, and, in general, act like stupid, shallow fools, which is what these women do. The ones chosen for this show are simply unlikable. Every time they decide to dump a guy, there’s a sigh of relief that the guy escaped. I seriously doubt I’ll watch it again. I doubt there’s room for personal growth in these women both due to a completely bizarre self-concept – there are puddles in potholes with more depth – and the feeling that they’re so fabulous everyone has to change to suit them.
So, for any non-New Yorkers watching the show – this is NOT what New York women are really like. Some of them are, but most of them actually have interesting and busy lives and have more interests than simply pairing up because they’re too neurotic and insecure to do anything (even go to a movie) on their own.
Going to try to get some paperwork done before heading off to the theatre.
If I don’t get a chance to check in again later tonight, I’ll be offline for a few days – but filled with stories when I return!
Hope everyone has a Hogwarts-filled week!
