This is me. I took this picture 6 hours ago. I am still sitting in the same place. I have done 6 pushups today - one for each trip to the kitchen where I stood looking in the refrigerator which happens to be bare except for some milk and a couple of limes. I get up and go to the kitchen to look at the very clean refrigerator every time I can't figure out what I want to be writing and/or my ass goes numb from sitting on it for too long.

I am currently hard at work on my book proposal for my new future agent (furiously crossing fingers, legs, toes, eyelashes). I really want to impress this guy so I am sitting up working on my proposal at a quarter after midnight. I am now nearly blind and my hair looks as if I have been through a wind tunnel. My skin is blotchy because my room is still 85 degrees F.

By the way, I bought my glasses at an antique shop in Banning last year. Fun, huh?

I am not complaining though (see this is me not complaining) because I am going to get my book published. Wheeeee!

More good news! Obviously, since you can see new pictures of me, my new camera showed up today. I love my new camera. If I wasn't already married, I'd marry my new camera. The video setting records audio. How freaking exciting is that? I also took a picture of my workspace. This is the space where I work. I'm sure that the feng shui is totally shitty but I'm an atheist as well as a total skeptic about everything - so I'm not all that concerned.

Hey, at least I have one of those bamboo thingies. (By the way, this also happens to be a photo of the offending desk of previous postings.) Anyway, I think I'll put on some Law and Order - or maybe CSI will be on Spike. I'll drift off to Marg Helgenberger dusting prints....
Stumble It!

Cool glasses, what are the odds that they would be the right Rx? Keep us updated on getting published; very exciting!! =)

You have been published! Just not for this particular project. I feel it will work out for you.

Oh goodness - you still have the desk? Your knees must be killing you!

We must discuss this writing thing...why did we bump into each other last year, after so many years? I just spent a few nights away with my husband and much of the time was spent talking about hard writing is and when the hell I am going to sit my ass down and start writing the articles i have wanted to write for the last FIVE years...

It will be a good lunch on Wednesday, no?
