My internet situation at home has been...troublesome. So that meant no blog post last Thursday or Friday. I have internet just fine at work, but, because I work at a school, pretty much everything fun is blocked. I used to teach a laptop-based English class, so I TOTALLY GET IT. I'm glad all of the internetty distractions are blocked for the students. But as a grown adult, dangit, I want to update my blog on my lunch break and I can't. That's frustrating.
I used to email updates to my blog. This was especially useful for Road Trip Wednesday posts when the topic wasn't announced the night before. But lately my email updates haven't been working! I would type up a post and email it and it would be returned to me undeliverable. I was prompted by typing this post to go into my settings and see if anything had changed...apparently when Blogger switched over to the new format it disabled my email permissions! Blast! So I just turned them back on. And, inspired by Sarah Enni's blog meltdown, I also set it to email me every post.
Aren't you guys so glad that I blog about every thought that crosses my mind and every little thing I do as I do it? I know you are! My blog is SO FASCINATING sometimes!
Here's a random Monday update for you guys.
I hit 900 followers on Twitter. WTF. I'm flattered, but I don't get it. I think I'm boring as hell. (See above paragraphs for explanation.) (Don't take this as an invitation to unfollow me, though.)
I have had some dark moments of the soul with my WIP. I am tempted to throw it out the window. Long hours spent on it are just making it worse. Is this normal?
I was filling up my coffee at Panera and I caught the eye of this really cute, really tall guy and he was totally looking at me. And I was all EFF YES, I STILL HAVE IT. And I thought briefly about the fact that I had no makeup on and hadn't exactly brushed my hair and was still kinda in my pajamas, but I brushed off those thoughts in favor of EFF YES, I STILL HAVE IT. But then I went to the bathroom and I saw that my hair looked like this:
So, while I might still have it in some capacity, I certainly did not have it on this day, and the really cute, really tall guy was just wondering WTF was going on with my hair. Womp womp. Maybe I should actually, I don't know, do something with myself before I leave the house.
I'm not going to lie, you guys, this last push of revision on my ms has me a little punch drunk.
Happy Monday, everyone!
