I am tired. Not the ‘I ran a marathon’ tired, but the ‘too many demands and not enough me’ tired. Trying to do Nanowrimo – and failing spectacularly… still have to do my Christmas story for the NCIS group. I’m going to try to make my next day off (this Thursday) somewhat more productive than this weekend.
I just really hate this season. Coming in dark, going out dark – stealing snatches of sunlight from behind the plexi windows of the office is not the best way to keep me at least non-unhappy. I just want to be left alone. When I come home, my mowing club wants to mingle with the fancy people and all I want is to sit down in the quiet for a few minutes. Sure, I have Saturday and some of Sunday evening, but – come on, just to be able to sit in quiet for a few minutes before I have to do anything else. Right now, the only peace and quiet I get is in my car. So, for now, I don’t mind the commute, I just mind the destination. Holy cow, do I mind the destination. I am so glad that I have this Thursday off. I am going to write as much as I can in between my different errands. If I want to be a professional writer, I need to get committed like a pig in breakfast.
Oh, if you want a good idea for a series to watch on TV – I cannot recommend Walking Dead highly enough. I’m a fan of the comic book series (have all up to 12) and I love the translation to the small screen, and it looks like they’re following the books. They’ve been green-lit for a second season. If that’s the case, they’re going to run out of comics before they run out of show. I wonder when they’re going to depart from the comic (if they do it before they get to the place where the comic stops), and what direction they’re going to take.
On some better notes: I am getting ready for my Christmas Horror-fest. I’ve got Drag Me To Hell, but I’m going to need some more because I am going to stretch this out for three days (Friday, Saturday and possibly Sunday) with the big day on Saturday. If anyone has any other ideas for good horror films – this is what I am planning on right now:
- Drag Me To Hell
- Paranormal Activity
- Mirrors 2
- The Orphanage
Needless to say, I am going to have to buy quite a number of films – I might see if I can rent whatever ones I can’t buy from my favorite rental place, hopefully they’re going to be there still when December rolls around. Might even see if there are any On-Demand movies and put some extra money on my bill.
Well, Constant Reader – I wish you well.
