This is going to be one short post - dear readers I have been in some sort of hellish realm these last few days - check The Watery Tart at right for her descriptions of the circles of hell! Mine are comprised of the following
Tech Hell - my computer is SLOW. Just to give you an idea, I can practice my accordion while I'm waiting for sites to load. Yes, and that is perhaps good for my accordion skills but it makes doing anything on here - well slow. slooooooooowwwwwwwwwww. Ron ordered some memory for me on line because the price was good. After two weeks it arrived. It isn't compatible with my computer (or his for that matter). They suggest we mail it back and for $14.95 they will ship us something compatible. Sure but it will take them weeks to do so and in the mean time I am walking through the thick mud of slow. I say, sweetly I think, 'how about we just buy the new memory and let them credit our account when they get the old memory back?' Ron tells me that then they'll charge us restocking fees that they won't if we do it this way. I walk away, sulkily. For thirty bucks I will wait a total of about six weeks if all goes well. NO!
So, we are in negotiation.
Grey Hell - it is grey here and has been for about a week. I don't do well with grey (or beige but that's another day). I don't mind bad weather so much but dull day after day makes me dull.
Restless Hell - I am restless with my writing. I need to choose something and stick to it. I think it can't be Earthbound because I don't think it is the plot that is the problem. I think that I don't want to work like mad on the second one of a series until I hear something - anything about the first. I will not go into all the back and forths of my brain on this as I am fiercely trying to take a stand against WHINING and WHINGING which I think is so goofy. I know what life I chose and I'd chose it again in a Nova Scotia minute (which unlike the forty seconds of a New York minute is really about an hour and a half.)
Finally there is
Heaven Hell - I have lovely work today with the folks I adore. I have lunch with a friend at her house which means she'll cook it and I only have to eat it! I have an evening planned of watching a few more episodes of the last season of WestWing - a season that Ron and I have not seen even once (I think.) We'll undoubtedly have a yummy nutritious dinner. I have gas in my car, money in my pocket, love in my heart, and my feet on the ground. Hey, I think this one trumps the other ones - pretty sure it does.
Later dear readers.
