I know I’m supposed to count my blessings and I’m sure I have blessings galore, I just can’t see the forest for the trees lately. However, I can think of a handful of things that don’t suck, and that’s something, right?
—I ventured out into public today and did not a) spontaneously combust, b) assault anyone and c) fall asleep.
—The new Apple store opened today at my local mall. Wooo. Now I don’t have to ship my PowerBook off for repairs. Hopefully.
—I bought new boots! Aren’t they pretty? (Yes, I’m shallow.)
—I got my hair cut and colored today. No matter what I feel like on the inside, at least my hair looks fabulous.
—In a strange twist, because my hair looks so fabulous I’m going to be photographed tomorrow. You know those hair style books the hair salons throw at you so you can pick a style/color/length you like? The salon is going to photograph me and submit my photo for an edition on color. There’s no guarantee my picture will make it into the book, but it’s neat to be selected to represent the salon. I practically feel like Carrie when she got the runway model gig, except in a less glamorous, less dramatic way. And I don’t get any sparkly underwear to keep. I don’t get any sparkly anything to keep. Okay, so I’m not even close to being like Carrie. Still. This is the first time I’ve ever been photographed for how I look. I’ve been photographed for doing things, winning awards, being in the right place at the right time, but never for how I look. It’s weird, but cool. Like I said, I’m shallow.
—I’ve sold two stories in the past week.
—I’ve been invited to be a part of a blogging project in which I will get paid to blog. Granted, it’s not a lot of money, but I’ll be getting paid to blog. Crazy.
