I really have no reason to post pix of my favourite actor (other than Daffy Duck) except that I'm a little brain-scrambled today. Good enough?
So, pick your favourite topic...
!) I have been on horseback three times this week and plan another ride tonight. I've ridden Bo twice and Skyla, My Current Favourite Pony, once. (What a difference! Big n Little!) I'm teaching a lesson tonight for three kids. Two are mine. I'm thinking it's going to be a half hour lesson... any longer my brain will be blown.
@) You know how Daffy always gets his beak blown sideways, or around the back of his head? And sometimes gets all his feathers blasted off? Dude, he does all his own stunts. Amazing!
#) I need a job. I need money. But if I get a job, I won't have time to ride, practice for my Level 4 Rider test, and get teaching hours. It also means less writing time. So I don't get a job. And we're broke. I'm really hoping to start getting paid for some of my stuff.
$) The trees are budding. Oh sweet relief.
%) Ha ha. Re-leaf.
^) Johnny is shooting a movie about notorious bank robber John Dillinger. He's shaved off his sparse straggly piratey beard (I love the straggly piratey beard, sighhhh), and cut his hair. He looks like 25 again. I wonder if I'd look 25 again if I shaved off my mustache. Um...
Apparently, this movie will also feature the deliciousness of Christian Bale and the exquisite Marion Cotillard. Interesting... a flick Jethro and I can both agree on. Eye candy all 'round!
(Not like I can afford to see any movies these days...)
&) I was going to send off my query to Big Canadian Agency. I printed the query, synopsis and requested 50 pages. The printer ran out of ink. I got into bed the other morning with the cat, dog, and snoring husband after the kids went to school. Started reading, just to make sure everything was okay. Found a mistake in the query. Found something I wanted to change in the synopsis. Wanted to change a few words in the manuscript. Got kind of dizzy. Wondered if I'm just being paranoid. Decided that no, it has to be the best I can make it, and I have to change a few things. Felt guilty about wasting the paper. Became overpowered by all the snoring in the bed... drifted off to sleep... woke up believing that SOME THINGS ARE BEST NOT RUSHED. So after I change the ink cartridge, I'll be doing a couple of fixups. It's worth it. Right? Right????
*) My dog has really stinky farts. I love him, don't get me wrong, but man. Nasty. Good thing he's so charming. I tell Jethro the same thing, oddly enough.
Okay. That's all for now. Talk amongst yourselves!
