Women and Men

I feel the crankies coming on - those "no real reason, just cranky" feelings.

Last night I bought several books I didn't need - which was actually rather fun - and a lap desk I DID need, but tonight it's too hot to work much on the laptop, anyway. But while the bookstore was lots of fun and all, the rack of vampire romances and other cheap vampire fiction is preying on my mind with a great big neon sign that says, "ha ha!" [/Nelson] For some reason I remain unpublished. Of course, right at the moment I'm at a stall just because I don't want to send out a package with a SASE that will have soon-to-be-expired postage on it; also, lack of printer. I also need to get in gear and adjust my first fifty pages into actual chapters for the next submission.

But I haven't been completely lazy. I managed to get the house vacuumed today, and cleared away some minor clutter, while adding some (including the book, "10-Minute Clutter Control" I always said I wouldn't get a book to tell me how to clear up clutter, yet I did...). Additional clutter includes a lovely new statue of Kuan Yin and a new Manaki Neko, just 'cause.

It is getting to the "deeply hot" portion of the year. In April. Sigh. (That probably has something to do with the crankies - I hate not being able to do things with my hands because I feel all sweaty.)

ETA: Oh, and I CAN'T FIND ANY OF MY TAPESTRY NEEDLES!!!! Dang it all! I can't finish that shrug I crocheted without them! (And yes, it's too hot to crochet, but I want to finish, anyway.)

Kuan Yin and lucky cats are always fun to have! I'm in the middle of washing clothes, which along with buying groceries, is the most productive thing I've done this weekend.

Wow, you're fast. You commented before I finished my edits. *g*

The more Maneki Neko, the better! They make me squee.

I need some! :-)

I'm online, anyhoo. Just roamin' the wild Web frontier and waiting for clothes to dry. By the way, Ben & Jerry's new flavor, Americone (vanilla with fudge/caramel and waffle cone bits) is mighty tasty. And it has Steve Colbert on the front.

The timer has rung! My clothes will be clean and dry and ready to fold. Joy!

I should be in bed. I'm tired, but it takes forever for pages to load, so I'm still up.

Americone sounds like Dreyer's "Drumstick" flavor - also yummy!

Eek! Deeply hot in April!?!!

It topped 100 over the weekend - at least at the radio station, if not "officially" - and was 96 coming home today.

BTW, we've been meaning to thankee for the cute li'l pens and chocolate - I'll assume it's great chocolate, but I don't eat coffee! The thought, though, was appreciated!
