Hi there! So, today I planned out my day and managed to get all my writing business chores done. Hurray for me!
Then, I was bound and determined to find a form that proved I’d registered my script with the WGA. Well, I
fumbled and fumbled looked and looked through my files like a complete moron over and over in all the same places, then I finally threw up my hand(s) and said, “I give up.” Then, I laughed, because I figured I probably looked like the worst imitation of Jerry Lewis ever. #iamfoolish
And, if you think that’s funny, you should’ve seen me at Starbucks last weekend, trying to open a packet of sugar. Ha ha ha …
Anyhow, I stopped and thought …
Then, I realized I could call the WGA and ask them to send me the form. Duh!
So, I called them and after a conversation that made it seem
absolutely hopeless unlikely that I’d get what I wanted, I kept thinking “fuck it, I want this form, no matter what.” And the woman at the other end is going to send it. I have no idea if it will arrive on time, and they can’t fax it (or so she says, despite my repeated requests). But it’s coming. Hopefully, on time. Because I took swift action.
And she even said she’d waive the $5 fee. Without my asking. Wasn’t that nice? Wow!
And I was able to work in a walk with my husband, too. Because life is too short not to take a walk and enjoy life. Really!
I also posted a short review of a short ebook on my book review blog.
It’s hard to admit (all over the Internet, no less) when you’re taking happy pills, but you’ve helped make it okay.
It’s also hard to admit that I’m smiling, but I have a secret problem. #iamfoolish
It’s tough to reveal your vulnerabilities, but I posted these photos to try to meet Jenny Lawson’s definition of a bloggess.
Kind of ridiculous, isn’t it? But maybe it shows how one person can affect many lives, profoundly.
Now, instead of seeing myself as a victim, I’ve chosen to be happy and in control. That’s why I’m a happy fool. #iamfoolish
The Bloggess is truly awesome. #furiouslyhappy
I really, really have to read her book.
I wish she were coming to DC, but DC
sucks ass isn’t on her tour. Oh, well.
Or Baltimore even. Yeah, right … Ha ha ha …
PPS: Regardless of your beliefs, I think these are awesome career and life guidelines.
UPDATE: OMFG!!!!!! DC-area blogger Marissa Payne of the now erstwhile (I guess) Anti DC has been “deemed a tastemaker” by the Washington Post. Marissa interviewed me for ScoutMob, where she works now as an editor, writer and tastemaker. Awesome!
Marissa is the one in the middle in the really cool turquoise pants, touching her own butt.
