i hate 4 a.m.

I went to bed too early last night. I knew I’d wake up at this godforsaken hour, but I couldn’t keep my eyes open.

And here I am now, looking for something to do. So, of course, I’m blogging.

Are y’all sick of me posting about the WGA writer’s strike yet? Well, y’all just wait until you don’t have anything to watch in a few weeks, then we’ll see who’s gonna jump on the support bandwagon.

Why don’t you jump onto the bandwagon now, and Buy Pencils.

That’s right (write)! For $1 you can buy pencils and have them mailed to the media moguls to show your support for the writers. What a fantastic idea!

The boys and I get the keys to our new home today. I bought a leaf blower/vacuum/mulcher yesterday because damn we got some leaves on the ground. While I’m cleaning the inside, the boys are going to be learning the art of leaf blowing. I also purchase a new ceramic cooktop. The new place had one of those old ass coil cooktops that was beat up and broken. It should be in on Friday. We’ll see….

We also picked out the new paint colors for the place. I love doing that, though I really hate painting. I am a sloppy painter, even when I try my damnedest to be careful. Fishdog will do the majority of the painting because he’s really good at it. I wish he would let me hire someone…

Okay, it’s 4:22 now and I’m yawning. I wonder if I can go back to sleep now?

not the colbert report

I so enjoyed the “Daily Showesque” video blog by the Daily Show writers the other day and I was hoping that The Colbert Report would follow suit. They have and it is made of awesome.

I stole it from Wil Wheaton again because hey, it’s not everyday you get to steal from Wesley. (That was for you, Maria. Yes, this is the same Wil Wheaton from Star Trek fame…his third book is out, if you wanna support the writer not just the actor…)

I’m tired and a little cranky this morning. I have to finish Bite Me! today before I go shopping for new house stuff. Of course, I just want to shop. But nope. I’m going to power through. I think I have about 10 pages left….

Then I’ll spend the week revising based on Louisa’s and Maria’s comments and get it to my awesome editor by Friday! Whoohoo!

not the daily show

Miss The Daily Show? Me too.

I wish the idiot corporations would get their heads out of their asses and settle with the writers. But they aren’t and everyone else is suffering. As a writer, I’m offended. As a viewer, I’m pissed off.

Anyway, if you miss The Daily Show, watch this video. I promise, even knowing all you want to know about the strike, this is totally worth watching if you’re a Daily Show fan.

Thanks to Wil Wheaton for posting this so I could steal it. I needed a fix.

Okay, I’m back to writing. Yesterday was a good day, today will be better. This weekend will be wrapped up in house stuff, so I need to finish. (starting to sound like a broken record, eh?)
