I really need to make some new icons

My problem is, I love all the ones I have so I'm not sure what I'd rotate out.

I still can't remember the perfect thing I'd thought of to give to my wife for Valentine's Day. It wasn't anything big or fancy or expensive, it was just RIGHT. Dang it.

Saturday is the big VNSA Book Sale here in Phoenix, one of the greatest things about this neck of the woods. I'd like to go, provided other folks in my intrepid group are willing to get up early on Saturday to go with me (and I can shake this cold). I want to find a copy of the out-of-print Harpo Speaks for cheap, if I can; otherwise I don't really have anything specific item I'm looking for, and goodness knows (from experience), if you go in there without a plan it can be VERY dangerous. (For the pocketbook as well as shelf space.)

I love an episode of Big Bang Theory when I laugh out loud.

He was playing at the foot of the escalator from the walkway over from the Bellagio to Bally's:

Mom put a couple of bucks in his tin. Said there was a charity sign on it, so it was for a good cause, although I couldn't tell you what cause...

I have been exceedingly lazy the last few weeks. I haven't written anything, haven't done anything of value (knitting doesn't count), all I do is piddle around on the Interwebs and watch television. I haven't even done any significant baking -- I even lost one of the pumpkins I'd put up because the jar didn't seal properly and I had to throw it out. *sigh*

Oo, piper. :D

I've been fighting with writing lately, myself.

I liked hearing the pipes!

I often have little dry spells, I suppose. This one's been a while coming, but man, when the well dries up, BLAM.

I have a bunch of short stories (fandom) due this month, and a big one due on the 15th of next month that I desperately want finished long before then but time's running out.

Then there's the original fic open contest I want to try to write for. AIEEE.

Someone needs to get me a deadline, I don't do anything otherwise...

Feb. 11th, 2011 04:42 am (UTC)
Hmmm....put one on your calendar and have it done by then.
Feb. 11th, 2011 02:50 pm (UTC)
That MIGHT work...

Ooo... piper! I've really been considering giving it another try. I did really well with it when I took lessons about a decade or so ago, but my lungs just couldn't handle the breathing I needed to do. Now that I've got my allergies somewhat under control, it might be worth breaking out the practice chanter again and seeing if I can manage it.

I LOVE the sound of the bagpipes! I never even considered the amount of lung power one would need to play 'em!
Feb. 11th, 2011 03:35 am (UTC)
From what I understand, the actual bagpipes themselves aren't too bad... it's a lot easier to meter out breaths, since you're squeezing in order to get the constant tones. But with the practice chanter, each note has to come directly from your lungs... I kept getting close to passing out!
Feb. 11th, 2011 04:16 am (UTC)
I've never actually played any wind instruments, only strings, so I'm not sure how much lung power I'd need! I always look at instruments and think "that doesn't look so hard" and of course, I'm wrong....

yay piper

boo to the slow writing. trust me i know what you mean
Feb. 11th, 2011 04:17 am (UTC)
I haven't been able to stir my characters to do anything...

Feb. 11th, 2011 04:39 am (UTC)
i just hope i didn't miss the deadline for the story I did manage to finish

I loved Harpo Speaks!

[hugs and good thoughts]
Feb. 11th, 2011 02:55 pm (UTC)
I like a good autobiography, and it's always been recommended, but I've never been able to find a copy! (I should troll around online, I suppose, too.)

Feb. 12th, 2011 02:25 am (UTC)
Eeee! Tomorrow's Saturday. Hope you go to the sale and come home with tons o' great stuff.
Feb. 12th, 2011 03:13 am (UTC)
So far, it doesn't look like anyone else wants to go... and I am still a little sick. But we shall see! (And I note that Harpo Speaks is actually back in print, and available at Amazon....)
Feb. 19th, 2011 12:27 am (UTC)
I can't help it. I wasn't thinking about the bagpipes when I saw the picture (wrests mind from gutter, reluctantly).

I dunno -- seems like there's been a lot going on, and maybe your muse needed a little vacation, too. And posting pictures is very much of value! But if I can help provide some artificial structure -- deadlines or reminders or prompts, for example -- let me know!
Feb. 19th, 2011 02:53 am (UTC)
Hee hee hee.

I hope so. I have stories (I always do), but there's nothing coming out. You could toss me a prompt when I least expect it, and see if I can do anything with it! :-)
