So it is I Reach Day Four

So I'm guessing that "The Neighbors" will run for ten or twelve seasons, because IT SUCKS LIKE A SUCKING THING, SUCKING THE LIFE OUT OF MY BRAIN.

It's nestled there between "The Middle" (decent) and "Modern Family" (awesome), so it's even been given the primo seat to assure this lasting quality. My God, it's horrible. (And they stole the "giving the aliens famous names" joke from Alien Nation. Ye ghods.)

Today we ate at Whataburger. *sigh* Well, I'm not one of the supervisors, THEY went out for a nice meal. I ate the rest of my sandwich (made with ingredients from Trader Joe's) for dinner. At least the Moscato they had at Wal-Mart is pretty good.

Did nothing today, outside of work. I feel better, somewhat; slept in and fortunately since I'm with a supervisor it was okay we were late for work, I suppose. (I can't help but note that things are WAY more relaxed here than they are in our shop!)

I fell asleep last night during NCIS -- went from them arriving at the rock guy's place to everyone telling Ducky "Good case!" then tried to stay awake for NCIS: Los Angeles but drifted off again and woke up during Vegas long enough to turn off the TV and the lights and really go to sleep.

My goodness, I'm boring.

I submitted my manuscript for "The Long Way Home" to Harper-Voyager, who are accepting unsolicited manuscripts this month. *crossed fingers* I wish "Ring of Fire" was in a shape to be submitted, but alas, it's not. (I started putting the sub-plot back into it, because really, with it pulled, it's not RIGHT...)

I'm so glad I get paid for Friday and all I have to do is fly home...

Bring Suburgatory back and place it in this godawful show's timeslot NOW!

Yes, please!

glad you got that submitted. Would Ring of Fire work as a duology?

sorry your Dallas trip isn't allowing much for side trips and fun

That's what I'm hoping for -- I was piecing it back together when I got sidetracked. What I WANT to do is end "Part One" where Erlind is killed and Della & Sean Patrick run off, and then do "Part Two" with the rest of it, fully restoring Matt & Cody's sub-plot there, because the second half works SO much better that way. I mean, it was with the story intact that it won an award, so I think it has merit when it's intact. I was just never satisfied with it chopped apart like that.

Yeah, I know. But really, we're so far from anything interesting out here -- I was looking at the map and most of the things I'd love to see around here are at least a half-hour drive or more away (I mentioned Austin to the girls at work today and they acted like it was on the moon it was "so far away"). Texas is so massive that "close" becomes a definitely relative term. Plus I don't feel like driving any length of time with my head all cold-muzzy.

That sounds like the day to go then and as a duology you'd have to worry less about that word count.

can't blame you there

That's what I'm hoping. And maybe, knock wood, if I can get someone interested in "Long Way Home," then "Ring of Fire" would have a way in, so to speak...

yes I think that about Makai's story and Ties that Bind

I was looking at books listed by Harper Voyager on Tuesday, and I was going to recommend them to you. They published a novel about a civil war vet hunting vampires, so it might be a good fit for you, especially now that Cowboys & Aliens has come out. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

I really LIKE "Long Way Home" (title notwithstanding), and I hope they do, too. I think it could be a great book if given a chance and some tight editing.
