Pleasant music for driving through endless unfamiliar unnamed suburbs: Soul Coughing's "Ruby Vroom".
Visited a friend tonight in a far-flung corner of the Chicago area. Had a great time, had a good dinner, began planning a movie-I created my first storyboard (really!). Fun fun fun.
Saw Dad at the hospital. We're both a fifty-cent cab ride away from throwing his roommate and his wife out the (fifth-floor) window. He was watching "Jeopardy!" yesterday while Roomie was out for tests. When Roomie and his (pushy, overbearing, doctor-harassing) wife returned, they changed the channel, without warning or asking.
To "Judge Judy".
I think we can get off on a "Not guilty, needed killing" verdict.
Not much beyond that. Spent a lot of time reading. Tomorrow I believe I may mow.
No word from Mom-at least not here. Apparently she called Dad. I can't say I'm heartbroken she didn't call me.
Gawd, I think I need to read more real things-the better stuff I've done with this has been after some heavyish reading.
The fabulous Bilal D. has started his own LiveJournal. Since he is so much talented a writer than I, I hesitate to put in a link to his journal, out of fear that I'll lose you to him. I…I don't know what would happen if I lost readership.
You'll come back, right? RIGHT?
Ooh, I have a thought. (No need for applause.) Bilal asked the purpose of keeping something like this. He proposes that it is due to a desire to have it read, no mater how "secret" we may say we want it to be. I, for one, wholeheartedly agree with this argument. I've got a pretty damned good memory. I don't have any reason to write these kinds of things down EXCEPT to get other people to read them. Hopefully, I will get comment on them. And, even more hopefully, word-of-mouth will pick up, and my readership wont be limited to people I directly tell about it. Which, of course, leads to the final step-fame and fortune.
