It’s the day before T-Gives, so I’ll start off with a tiny list of things I’m thankful for. I’m obviously thankful for friends, family, and not being dead. I am also thankful for these things:
- A really low electric bill.
- The bright side of being unemployed is I don’t get stuck working late, skipping lunch, etc. to get stuff done.
- Cats who want to sit next to me. Like RIGHT NOW! Goonie is soooo into me. She’s all “mawww, I love you, mawww!”
- My So Called Life on Netflix.
For the last week I’ve been thinking about how not really participating in the outside world as much I don’t have a lot to contribute here, at least not based on the original intention. I thought I’d maybe try my hand at some fiction, after all I *did* win an award for a short story I wrote when I was 9-ish. It was a story about how I met Rick Springfield at a concert and we were later married. I was going to try to recreate this short story since I no longer have a copy. But then I realized it was essentially fan fiction, which generally creeps me out. So no story about the love between me and Rick, but you can go to sleep with a smile on your face knowing that it did exist. It was real.
Also, I made another friend. We had coffee beverages and chats at a lovely coffee house in Valley Village. It was lovely. Building my friend base, slowly but surely. WATCH OUT L.A.! You will meet me and fall in love, because I am adorable. And snarky. And into hugging.
Sweet dreams, America. And happy yam-sham day! I hope your day doesn’t suck.
