Greetings, Kittens!

I still haven't managed to restructure my days enough to visit all of you during the rest of the week like I want to. Today, I thought I'd share my week with you since we got the chance to hang out last Thursday. So here you are, 13 Things from My Week!

Enjoy.

Photobucket

1. (Friday) Crush of the Week ~ Lena Headey @ Erotic Diaries.  Crush of the Week is a regular feature at Erotic Diaries, where I've been alternating actors and actresses who supportive of social issues, body positive, sex-positive, and so far, who bring genre television and movies to new heights.

2. (Saturday) Writing From the Middle: The Pansexual's Delimma ~ Accuracy vs. Visibility @ QMO.  Writing From the Middle is a recurring feature currently seen three times a month, once at QMO and twice for Menage Mondays at Michael Mandrake's.

3. (Sunday) Six Sentence Sunday #11 Saint Valentine.  This is the first snippet shared from Saint Valentine for Six Sentence Sunday. It went over very well and I'm excited to share more from it at future dates.

4. (Monday) Launch of Silken Sheets & Seduction.  This is a brand new erotic authors site and there's a huge giveaway of over 75 ebooks, gift cards, and a Kindle! Please stop by and get your name in the running. Winners will be announced October 1st.

5. (Wednesday) Wednesday Ramble ~ What is Sexy? @ Silken Sheets & Seduction.  Wednesday Ramble is a brand new bi-monthly feature at Silken Sheets & Seductions. It brings my total to 5 other blogs you can find me on monthly, consisting of 10 posts a month--before any other random invites. Yep, I'm being social! :) I'd love for you all to come and weigh-in on the posts!

6. I got a job interview.  Well, I got scheduled for a job interview. I'm waiting to hear back on the hard date and time. It's the first interview for me since I was laid off in February, 2010. I'll let you know the outcome next Thursday. 

7. I decided to take a vacation from writing.  Not that I've been getting an abundance of writing done while sick, but once my current projects are wrapped up, I'm putting everything else on hold until January. I'm also limiting myself to four projects for 2012. Let's see how that turns out.

8. I caught up on Sons of Anarchy.  I still don't know how I feel about this show. I love Jax and Opie, but I'm used to being endeared to each individual in an ensemble cast and there are some characters in this show that I just want to see die! It's an odd place to be in, some three seasons in. It proves I love my husband-like-person! I watched only because he puppy-dogged me into it, and now I'm committed and conflicted.

9. Started a 1000 mile journey.  Well, I started it before this last week, but this week is the first where I've made daily progress. My health and energy have been very poor, and in building back, focusing on the next 1000 miles seemed a fitting goal. I'm using a recumbant stationary bike and a pedometer to count my miles, but the pedometer has gone MIA, so I'll be estimating errands as a single mile until I get a new one.

10. I set a year health goal.  I can't undo the CFS, nor can I force it into an upcycle. I can make significant health strides and regain where I was three years ago. That's what this year will be about.

11. I realized I was depressed.  This sucks, but at least I know for sure that it's part of the problem and can deal with it. It was difficult to separate from the insomnia and blood sugar instabilities, but now I know and will go from there.

12. I was bombarded by four story ideas.  None of which are on the list for the projects I'm working on next year. *headshake* If I slept like normal people, this wouldn't happen to me. Ah well.

13. I watched three of the first offerings of this new fall season.  I'm reserving judgement.

Thanks, got my own fingers crossed too! I'm in the email stage of interaction which I appreciate. Getting several things down before the physical interview is convenient.

As usual, I reckon. I, too, wish you luck on your interview. And like you, I've recently been bombarded with new story ideas. ARGH!!!

Now I'm scrambling to get back to work at the school as well as get the writing up to speed once more. Ah, it's a glamorous life, no?

Happy TT!

I have a lot of fun doing Crush of the Week! I just wish I wasn't so picky about the photos. It can take forever to find what I want. :)

I'm still trying to get 10,000 steps in. Seems like there's always something else more urgent.

I cheat and walk in place while on the computer. It helps me forget how long I've been walking, I like it! Of course, I can type and walk in place, which is convenient. :)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. That makes sense. My reading comprehension has been in the basement today.

Sadly no. But my brain stopped working once the dog crushed my computer. I think I've spent the remainder of the day in shock.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that! How did that happen?

I do an open link poetry pub on Tuesday and Wordless Wednesday most Wednesdays. Thirteen Thursday is my favorite meme, love to tie up the week with a list. I'm trying to lessen my writing projects too, learning to say maybe or even no.

Sometimes it just pays to pace yourself! I'm learning that now and hope to keep on message next year!

It was my own fault. I had my laptop up, but the dog wanted to play. So we played, and she got hyper and jumped up on the couch, thus slamming my laptop closed. Busted the screen. I just looked at it and thought, Thank God all my crap's on Dropbox...

But I've been bitching about that stupid thing for so long, I'm probably overdue to get one that won't shut off by itself in the middle of me writing or freeze every three seconds....

Getting a new laptop is always fun, but having to get a new laptop--definitely not.

I hope the new one rocks and lifts your spirits! :)
