After I Died

I don't want to go to work tomorrow.

Unlike some people, the more time off I have, the more I want. Oh, well. It does keep the paychecks coming in, I suppose.

It does mean getting back to the business of losing weight, which I not only gave up for the last week, seemed to actively avoid - I gained about five pounds, which I shall have to fight off in the next few weeks, before my birthday wrecks it all again.

Anyway, today I got my car tested and passed, then did a few other things around the house, and generally just kicked back. Now there is a chicken roasting in the oven.

I have nothing to say about the current things, but I did do this: wildrider at insanejournal.com - which I may or may not ever really use, but there it is. My main worry is losing everything I have here, so I would have to find out a way to back it all up, should they "come for me next," and there's no one left to speak...

My soap opera did get renewed for another season. However, NBC has moved it exclusively to DirectTV, and they will no longer stream episodes online once it moves. So when the end of this season comes in a few weeks, it'll be gone from me. I am sad about this, although it will save me about 45 minutes a day. *sniff* I won't be switching to DirectTV just for a soap, and I can't help but wonder how many people would - even insane fans. I think it's NBC's way of doing the old, "Well, we TRIED, but the ratings just didn't stand up!" ploy.

Another rejection slip. Time for another submission package. *sigh*

I've friended you over at ij. And we shall indeed diet together. I've been really good for several days now (I even earned enough points walking around the zoo to make up for the ice cream I ate), so hopefully I'll go down a little bit this week. Sorry about your soap. I think I've stopped watching Days again. I keep recording it, then erasing it unwatched every few days. Patch and Kayla are hardly ever on, and what little storyline they have is really stupid, so I guess I'm a free woman from 1-2:00 again.

Well, you're already ahead of me since today appears to still be a part of my vacation (I didn't MEAN for it to be, but....). So! Tomorrow I'm back to the gym, and STOP with the cakes, already! *g*

It's a stupid soap. I could write circles around these guys and still keep up the intrigue and cliffhangers without the characters acting SO STUPIDLY... and yet I still watch. *sigh* I'll miss it, anyway. I guess that's how they make their money.

Yeah, generally speaking. I don't dislike my job, I just prefer being at my home, where I could get some REAL work done. *g*

ljArchive works fairly well.

Poo! on the rejection slip.

I'm TRYING to remain positive (and not "positive no one will ever buy my book," either.... *g*).

I meant something outside of LJ. Goodness knows I don't THINK I'd ever be deleted, but "these are perilous times." :-P
