I’m no longer allowed to go into the high school to interrupt filming so I drop Annie off at the door and wait outside when she is finished. Which means no more good “Mom asses out on the movie set” stories.
I’m waiting for the okay on the photos from the Bastille Day party. So no incarcerated youth Bastille Day party story.
I’m bored to the point of rigor mortis at my job. I am primarily grateful that I have a job that allows me to almost make ends meet. Secondarily, I am tired of being hopelessly underemployed. Truthfully, I look at the internet all day everyday. I look for jobs, play Friends with Words, read blogs, write blogs even when I’m writing about not writing. My plan is to have a career transition in place or almost in place by January which will be my 2nd anniversary here. I’d like to freelance or do contract work creating content for small businesses. I just don’t know for sure how to make that happen.
Just back from a long weekend in Seattle with my pal Lisa and her girls. Here is a photo of me and Lisa. We are Mutt and Jeff but I’m growing to not hate myself in photos so much.
There isn’t much to write about the weekend. We went to the King Tut exhibit which is terrific and awe inspiring. The artifacts are beautiful and shockingly well-preserved.
We went to the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Pike Street Market and the Seattle Aquarium. It was a great, great weekend as it always is with Lisa and her girls but there are no hilarious anecdotes that will translate well. I will not be able to convey how hilarious it was when I rose up in defense of Suri Cruise, only to realize Lisa was talking about Katie Holmes and not her 6-year-old daughter (who by they way, should walk on her own more often.) See? You’re not laughing. However, I assure you, my reaction was really good comedy.
I could write about the abominable tragedy in Colorado but Brigitte has done it far better than I ever could. One thing I will say is that it was good to be out of town to not watch the news. Lisa and I discussed the issue of news watching after a horrible event like the theater massacre in Aurora. I don’t want to watch news on it and I usually don’t because I don’t want to contribute to the sensationalizing of the shooter/murderer nor do I want to leer at the pain of the victims. But there is another side of me that wonders if I should watch to make sure …. you know what? No. There is no other side for me. I get that it’s news but I can’t watch it. I hope the guy gets the death penalty and not a stay in a psych ward. God Bless the victims and their friends and families. I do not have adequate words.
I have however just written over 570 words about not being able to think of anything to write. This is my first summer blogging. Is summer the slow season?
