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.

    It's not BAD news...

    ...but it's not really news at all. Or is it? You decide:

    From email:

    Subject: Ready for Review

    Dear NancyPants,

    Thank you for applying to the The Big State College of Nursing.
    We have finished processing your application. It is now complete
    and ready for the review process.

    In early to mid-March, admission decisions will be mailed for
    Summer 2009 and Spring 2010 entry terms.

    Pins and needles, people! Pins and needles!

    It's time for Rudi's No-Fail Steely Dan Sigil (Thanks, Rudi!)

    Update: My hor(ror)oscope. GA! :

    The enterprising Aries Moon provokes us to take action, but starting
    something new is not so easy today as impulsive Mars forms an annoying
    quincunx with restrictive Saturn. We may feel as if every move we
    attempt to make is blocked by unchangeable circumstances. Talking
    about it won't help, for communicator Mercury semisquares obstinate
    Pluto. Fortunately, the Moon's entry into stubborn Taurus at
    10:32 pm EST gives us the determination we need.

    You may be quite subdued now, even if you are still feeling hopeful
    and enthusiastic. It's just that you might learn something that
    makes you aware of how much additional time and money may be
    required to complete a project. It may be impossible for you to
    see an easy way through this reality check, but rest assured that
    you are facing a temporary obstacle. Unfortunately, no amount of
    hard work will resolve the problem today. The key to success will
    be your dogged persistence.

    And now we are...38

    I'm back. And I'm older as of today. You know, as opposed to every other consecutive day I spend on the planet. Even Neil Gaiman's celebrating, isn't that sweet?* If you follow the link to his first blogpost, it will give you an idea of the posts I've spared you these past weeks.

    But I'm happy with JALL's progress overall. It's almost there, and I lived through a critical scene. Not everyone else did though. 'Nuff said.

    I've always felt that 38 would be a special year, the year everything was finally ok, the year that I will have 'arrived' somewhere. I'm not sure where that place is. I'm almost there with the book, I have agent leads, I'm in school taking microbiology and statistics and waiting for nursing school, I have old friends back in my life and the boyos will be receiving awards at school again, on Friday.

    And I have a box of this. Oh, sweet heavens!

    All the while things look dark and gloomy for the planet otherwise. It makes things...interesting.

    Missed 'yall. Oh and if you are interested, I have a..mumblemumbleFacebook page mumblemumble...under my Christian name. Nancy and I don't know each other, got it?

    *Disclaimer...oh, just go look, will ya?
