Words, Weights, Whatever

Working on background stuff. Fun!

It's amazing the many people who are working with words. I have met so many screenwriters, poets, musicians, and writers just by announcing I'm working on a novel. What's great is we've all supported each other efforts.

Sad news. I've finally had to decide to drop my Thursday step class. The instructor has moved beyond teaching to dancing. When the class is not fun, not exercise, but escalating frustration, it's time to move on.
Hmmm. What will I substitute in that slot?

It's amazing how one's mood changes with hypoglycemia. Even a mild case makes me depressive: I hate everyone, including my spouse. Then a couple of glasses of orange juice and bam!, I'm rational again. Bad case are horrible: shakes, nausea, headaches, dizziness, altered mentality, etc. They require usually a candy bar or a tablespoon of honey. And one never forgets how one feels in these episodes. My spouse--who doesn't suffer from hypoglycemia--recognizes the mood and immediately gets the necessary "cure" while selectively forgetting anything I say while under the spell. Now that's love!

Work's been busy. Eek!

The "real" sixth sense?


'Mindsight' could explain sixth sense


Some updates....

Following the enthusiasm generated from last Friday's session, I packed my writing materials in the car for the weekend. And did I write? Of course not. I DO have a happy marriage and intend to keep it that way.

My mind wasn't idle, though. Came up with some beauties of ideas during the trip home.

Learned that my body had stopped manufacturing the enzyme to digest fat*. A "side effect" from drastically cutting back on fatty foods over the past few days. And what did I eat during our trip (see below)? Brie, scrambled eggs...

Vacation down in San Diego. Hit the bookstores, saw a play, and ate. When we got back on Sunday, we finished up an anime series (which the second season is currently only in Japanese. Damn!)

*No, this is not something wrong with my body. Happens to anyone who cuts fat out of their diet and suddenly tries to eat lard in one sitting.

Humor (8 Rules for dating my teenage Republican daughter)


Thanks, Adam!

8 Rules for dating my teenage Republican daughter:
(If you believe all of the following statements, you can go out with my daughter.)

1) Education is a private/local matter, and government shouldn’t take dollars collected in rich communities and redistribute them to schools in poor communities.

2) Owning a weapon is a constitutional right, but marrying the person you love is not.

3) It is always wrong to raise taxes. But, it’s fine for government to get into debt and have the next generation pay for it, as long as the banks and rich investors can earn their interests.

4) You have to be against government programs, but expect Social Security checks on time.

5) Biology teachers are corrupting the morals of 6th graders if they teach them the basics of human sexuality, but the Bible, which is full of sex and violence, is good reading.

6) Government should shun any support to art. After all, the rich can afford to buy their own and the poor don't need any.

7) You have to believe a commission appointed exclusively by President Bush to investigate his administration's intelligence failures in Iraq.

8) George W. Bush REALLY won the election.
