Another Post That Really Isn't About Much

Here's an ancient cartoon my mother showed me this morning when I was feeling sad:

I don't know why I find it so funny, but I do.

Maybe I just needed a good laugh this morning. I've been thinking too much again. My life continues to play out like a low budget indie film, leaving me overwhelmed and confused. I'm tempted to change my name and move to South America, but that would probably be considered counter-productive.

So I'm going to make myself a cup of tea, hide away in my living-room-turned-office, and write like mad. Tomorrow I'll go back to putting together articles that might sell, but today I want to make some serious progress on the "Goat Man" script. It's a good day to be a reclusive writer, a good time to get lost in my own fictitious, anthropomorphic universe.

Maybe if I'm feeling brave, I'll record snippets of some the songs I've got for "Goat Man" and throw them up here. But only if I happen to feel brave. :D

Anyway, I'm off to my living room/office/cave. Over and out.


  1. When my life starts to feel TOO much like a low-budget indie, I watch Lawrence of Arabia. That sometimes shakes me out of it.

    I wish you the best on the articles that sell!

  2. Tom - I haven't decided what my South American name should be yet. It has to be some sexy and mysterious, yet suitable for a white chick. Any suggestions?

    Benny - Thanks!
    Oh man, I haven't watched Lawrence of Arabia in ages. I think maybe I'm due to watch it again. Good idea.

  3. hi m'lovely,

    I wanted to thank you for taking the time to leave me a beautiful comment on my blog.

    I really appreciated it, sorry it's taken a long time to reply - this is handtyped...not copied and pasted so it's taken me a while to reply to everyone.

    anyway now I"m just rambling.

    have a great day,

  4. Oh God, that's a tough question. If I were to choose an alias for myself, I think I would choose Harry Fawkes, because it sounds frightfully upper class and it may make it possible for me to slip into the moneyed, jet-setting elite without them realising I'm common as muck.

    Your name would totally be Alice. Maybe. Alicia, if we're going Spanish.

  5. Ooh, I like the name Harry Fawkes. Very classy.

    And Alice is a cool name. Maybe I'll just come up with a Latin-sounding last name so I can blend in a little if I do end up fleeing to South America. Hmmm. Fuego. Alice Fuego. Sounds a little bit like a superhero. I think I like it.

    Then again, maybe it sounds too much like a porn star name. Hmmmmphf. Maybe I'll just be Alice and have no last name. It works for people like Cher.


It makes my day when YOU leave me comments. :D
