Oh pooh

Just got an email from the guinea pig lady... and I won't get them today after all. She had to have some medical tests and the doctor only does them Wednesday mornings. So she'll come with the guinea pigs tomorrow. Awwwwwwwwwwwww.

He he...

That was a quick call. Somebody wanted to sell me auto insurance. Yeah, I need that...

I do have a disability insurance policy in case a car HITS me though!

I don't feel so good

It's really weird, but on and off this month, I keep getting that oddly depressed, nauseous feeling normally reserved for times of PMS or during my period. Like, I'll feel just suddenly so sad and lethargic and I'll get indigestion. I just want to QUIT and conk out on the couch or something. My period was totally normal, so I don't think there's been some hormonal change. I wonder if it's just some reaction to my new being-at-home-ness. Even though I'm happy and have lots of things to be excited about (like this month's cash flow), there are times when I guess I'm lonely or I get stressed out. Hopefully the guinea pigs will relieve some of this, huh?

How annoying

Well, I worked pretty hard last week doing a revision on Mat Man's product page, then sent him a note about it, saying to review. Been waiting for four days. Then just now, he emails me asking what's the hold up. Argh. Well, not like I didn't enjoy not hearing from him -- the stuff he's having me do is very time-consuming! -- but I mean, what happened that he didn't get my email? Oh, well, I suppose I can now expect to be doing some work in the near future...

Customer Service

Well, I have a customer who can't complain! It was 1:45 and I was about to FINALLY go to lunch, at the nice place downstairs, when Mat Man called me. Could I talk? I said I was about to go out but had no "appointment." He talked until 2:30. And guess what? That's when that restaurant closes. Man! Oh, well, was going to the Curb Market anyway, will get sandwich at another place. Mat Man, oh Mat Mat, you are one HANDFUL of a customer! Give me a gold star.

Setting the mood

Maybe some day somebody will interview me and ask what's my writing "routine." Any special rituals? Um, well, yeah... There are variations, but basically it involves music, candles, incense and getting drunk. Tonight, it's Hindi pop, sandalwood incense, two candles, and a big mug of Kedem kosher wine HOT. (BTW, this drink is a great idea in the wintertime. I am *burning* up now...)
