Friday Freeday: It's early so I'm rambling.

Good morning,

I'm almost sure that the ever-growing mountain of clothes on my bed contributes to my lack of good sleep, so when my alarm goes off, I hit snooze.

Either way, hello!

Today, I have Employee Recognition, where we eat, have a training, then have games and a talent show. I'm doing a Zumba demo, yay. It took me until about 5:30 last night to figure out which song I was doing, then while in bed, I remembered I needed to find the CD first. Fortunately I found it.

I'm watching a Spongebob episode I always see the end of but never the beginning, so I'm not quite sure what's happening. Yes, I'm almost 29 years old and still watch Nickelodeon cartoons.

I am on page 55 of 372 of revising my WIP. I've actually added about 2,000 words and will keep an eye on the word count. It's fantasy, though, so I'm trying to make sure things are as established as possible while not adding unnecessary words.

The McDonald's commercial where the poor little girl gets rained on is so cute. And funny.

I repinned a picture that encourages using SALTS instead of LOL. SALTS stands for "smiled a little then stopped." I'd also encourage LOTI "laughed on the inside" because if you say lol but didn't really laugh it's because you thought it was funny enough TO laugh, but didn't, and FETLBD is a mouthful.

I've been watching the original Star Trek, and it's kind of bad. One episode about ESPers was really good though. I think it helped fill in a few holes in one of my story ideas. We'll see. I can't wait to start writing something else, but when I'm revising, I don't particularly want to.

I imagine my ride will be here within the half-hour, so I'm going to end now. Have a good weekend! I'll be in D.C. for my keyboardist's parents' church anniversary.


  1. I think I'm pretty much familiar with every episode of SpongeBob by this point. I love it, and I'm 32, so don't worry!

    Yeah, I don't usually actually laugh out loud when I say LOL... something to think about!

  2. Spongebob is awesome. No need to be ashamed! LOL -- I MEAN SALTS!

    SALTS is so much more true, by the way.

  3. I don't get Nickelodeon (no cable), but I still watch cartoons, so don't worry, you're not the only one!

    Good luck with the rest of your revisions! It sounds like you're off to a good start. :)

  4. Star Trek is never bad! All right, the first season or two of Next Gen wasn't great...
    I just laugh. Or chuckle. I have an aversion to acronyms.
    Hope everything went well in DC.

    1. I enjoyed the first season of The Next Generation. :D But between Shatner's bad acting, the soft focus facial shots, and the overly sexual/emotional women of the crew, The Original Series is hilarity. WHY was Uhura singing to Spock?! haha

      DC was okay, thanks! :)
