Life Among the Never-Winged

Once upon a time I was writing a book called, "Just Another Love Letter", about angels behaving badly. Now I just quietly ask myself each day, "What the hell am I doing?"

My friends always knew I was going to hell. My only hope is that God likes good jokes and bad redheads.

    Be Careful What You Wish For

    It RAINED!

    Then it snowed.

    More than a dusting, less than an inch. Perfect for the garden. And my sanity.
    So I'm all blissed out. I even accomplished some writing yesterday that I'd intended to do a couple of nights ago. I ended up reading about 200 pages of the manuscript that night instead, which is a good thing. I hadn't done it yet, and now I can say that I'm pleased with the way the story flows. All the hooks are in the right places, the clues have all been dropped in, and I can slap a label on it saying, 'Now with 32% Less Pointless Angst!' (Thanks, DMG.)

    So. I'm jumping up and down because of a few things...that I think I still need to keep to myself.
    Stay tuned.

    Oh, and a little clarification -- friends of Jennifer R., please say hello if you're still lurking. (Not to be confused with friends of Jennifer Connelly. But you can say hello too, I guess.)

    Oh oh! And I had a dream last night, in which I completely grasped quantum mechanics and so was able to go back in time to a young Einstein in his patent office.
    I kissed him, then whispered in his ear:
    "God does play dice. And it's...spooky."
    Then I vanished.

    And just because his hair is so incredibly lovely after a bath, here's the back of Declan's head:

    Awwww...that's sweet that you want to eat one of my sons!

    Darn it, G, I've been thinking about you and your domestic life! Hope all goes well.

    Rain...ain't it just a marvel? It absolutely poured down here, lovely damp stuff, falling from the sky just like helium balloons...uhm...don't. Fall.


    I love a good rainstorm.

    Well, it didn't rain here, and hasn't for months. Ah, Pueblo.... Good song about it: Robert Earl Keen's "Not A Drop of Rain." Springsteen's "This Hard Land" as well.

    I agree JALL has a nice flow to it. The train cars fit together more nicely than I expected, given your previous comments about it. Almost done!

    Irrelephant: You have no idea how relevant helium balloons and rain are to me right this very minute. Get out of my head! :-)

    Mr. Clowncar: It never does, down there. How can you stand it? I think you guys need to move north, for the sake of your sanities. And mine.
    Thanks! Woot! I've got more for you to read when you're ready. I REALLY appreciate this. Again, good luck with Bread Loaf!

    I think it's more likely Einstein dreamed YOU. And life is what happened after you vanished.

    Beautiful curls! He's gonna drive the girls wild!!! ;-)

    We had rain glop yesterday - I don't know what the technical term would be. It's not really snow and not really rain...definitely not sleet or hail. How to's really thick loogies... Yuck!

    My word ID was luudsv - works for me.

    Esereth: That scenario is entirely probable. Einstein would disagree, but hey, he's wrong!

    Pika: O tells me it's snowed here on the 4th of July. Of course, he's the same guy who left the steering wheel comment on DMG's site...

    DMG: He already drives the girls wild. He knows how to work it, too. Jack's got the eyes, but Declan's got the moves. (Am I sick or what?)

    The word you're looking for to describe the stuff falling from the sky is 'oobleck'. It's in a Dr. Suess book.

    Oh, one of mine has curls like that too! And I've gotten so many requests to cut one off for people -- what IS that about? Sometimes I actually oblige. And I put a couple away for future reference...his baby curls.

    Yup, I have little baggies with baby locks tucked safely away.

    I walked into a crowded room with them recently, and a total stranger said, "Here comes the cherubs!" That made my week.
