Unconscious Mutterings

I've finished the manuscript and it's on my editor's desk, but I'm still having trouble coming up with ideas to blog about. I think it's because I got only 2 hours of sleep a night for more than a week as I tried to finish the book on time. Last night, just when I was starting to think I might be getting close to feeling human again, I made the mistake of eating a couple of bites of Szechuan Beef, and stayed up most of the night battling heartburn. I'm way too tired to think tis morning, so here's another meme.

--- --- --- --- --- I say ... and you think ... ?

  1. Rita :: Rudner. Is that her name? Comedian. Dark hair. Okay, I just Googled her and yes, I got her name right. I was reading her bio and discovered that she and her husband wrote the script for "Peter's Friends" which is kind of an English version of "The Big Chill." "Peter's Friends" stars Hugh Laurie, Kenneth Branaugh and Emma Thompson, to name just part of the cast. My second thought was the RITA Award from Romance Writers of America, which is odd, I think. Not that I would think of the RITA, but that it would be my second thought behind Rita Rudner whose name I wasn't even sure of. I mean, I'm going to be President of RWA next year, so you'd think .... well, who knows how the mind works, 'eh?
  2. Comedy :: Central. I'm not sure what else to say about this one.
  3. Polar :: Bear.
  4. Idiots :: Oh, don't get me started! You know who I'm particularly annoyed with at the moment? Those people who try to get around traffic by driving down the shoulder of the freeway. You've got 4 or 5 lanes of people ground to a completely stand-still because up ahead somewhere, somebody threw a gum wrapper out of their car and everybody else had to stop and look, and then some idiot decides he's more important than anyone else and decides to drive up the shoulder of the road so he can get to the next exit faster.
  5. Perception :: There is no reality, only perception. That's why there's no "right" or "wrong" about most things. That's why people who feel some sort of divine calling to set the rest of the world straight (as in trying to force the rest of us to think their way) are high on my "Idiots" list, too.
  6. Infected :: Wound.
  7. Fake :: Boobs. Sexy
  8. Relating :: One of the hardest parts of being a human being - relating to other human beings, especially when we let ourselves start thinking of each other as idiots!
  9. Idiot
  10. Distraction :: Anything that keeps me from working when I should be working. Sadly, this does not have to be something big, or important, or even interesting. If I'm not on my toes, I can be distracted by just about anything, for unspecified periods of time.
  11. Gamble :: Anything in life that involves risk.
