Living the Dream Redux

You think when you Live the Dream, that your days will stretch out languorously and you will have nothing to do, when in fact all kinds of crap-ola fills them up. Today I have to get the invitations out for a baby shower I am giving, pay bills, go to the post office, get an ink cartridge, geesh, I can't keep track. When I'm working I do this stuff with my left hand, but now events like this loom like actual chores.

Am writing a new book with a friend. I think it will be women's fiction, about a man and a woman--SHOCK!!! who meet at a birding convention. I'm excited about it. Anyway, I am going to start something on my own, but it's fun to have this project too. We are going to the Audobon Society today to check out some facts. Of course it will be about more than birds--stay tuned.

I have both air conditioners running today, one in my bedroom and one in the computer room. I suppose my electric bill will be higher. I already pay THREE HUNDRED FREAKING DOLLARS A MONTH for electricity, which I find appalling.

Short post today because of shower invitations. I'm a hell of a gal and don't forget it.

A bientot

Would you please, please, please start a column? Your stuff is way to funny to sit all alone on a blog. Dave Barry, move over.

Yes I agree you should get more exposure for your humour!
Start a column.
I am still loving the book - your humour is just SO good. It's such a friendly, chatty, funny, enjoyable book - I am up to where Jeanie gives Barton the flick - that great speech as she left rehearsal.
I am glad you are writing two more books (as well as 'Victory' which I am intending to buy as well. Can't wait.)

Sorry I just realised I gave away something that's in the book - how bad am I? So sorry Becky. But I have finished it (finished it in bed last night)and LOVED it all! The ending did not disappoint - it all wrapped up very, very well. You are one talented writer.
