I’m motoring along this week, working on my (crummy) screenplay, packaging up books to mail off to contest winners and far flung friends, writing a quiz for Mythology class, working on a couple of stories, instant messaging with Sheri about Paris.  I’m feeling the need for a little pampering—even if I have to do it myself.  I need some peace and love in my life, y’know?  I talk a good game about taking care of myself, but I really don’t.  Not for any duration, anyway.  I need to get better about that.

I need to learn to say, “No.”  I need to find people who want to drink margaritas with me and laugh—a lot.  I need to not get sucked into the woes of other people—I neither want nor need to be a cast member in their dramas.  I prefer comedies.  Romantic ones.  With hot sex, preferably.  I need to get up and dance—I have a lot to celebrate.  I need to get out and have fun—that’s the perk that comes with the freedom I have in my life.  I need to write for myself instead of agonizing over whether something is good and interesting and entertaining (whether fiction or blogging).  I need to indulge myself—and to hell with everyone else—for a change.

How about you?  What do you need?

    I need a lunch/dinner date with you.  A movie, too.

  • I need a margarita!
    And to watch more of those clip shows. I had one on by accident the other day and laughed like a hyena for an hour straight. Stupid, sure. But damn. There is just something about drunk people falling off tables at weddings that amuses the hell out of me. Which felt v.v. good. wink
