1-11!January 11, 2005

So it's Tuesday, right. Tuesdays are for writing. That's my new thing. I like to get a big ole four-hour chunk done, which propels me into writing for the rest of the week. And if I start by noon, that's fine. But if I start by eleven, then I get a nap before work, so I'm really going to try to prop my eyes open and move my fingers.

Although I might write from bed. Right now I'm on the couch. But the bed is warm. Where IS the heater guy? I called to try to get service through the home warranty and requested a different heater guy, since the last one never showed or called back after he missed the appointment. A different guy called yesterday and said, "So, can we come by at 7am?" I called back and left a message, "No, seven is bad. Noon is good." He called again this morning at six forty-five and asked if he could come by. "No, it's still not a good time. I'm, um, leaving." "Right now?" He could tell by the way that I was barely forming syllables that I probably wasn't going anywhere, but come on, that's just silly. "Right now. I'll be back at noon." He said, "We'll see what we can do," and hung up, so I don't think I really even have an appointment.

All this stuff confuses me.

Kira astounded me again last night. They have this thing about picking the very few things I don't like in life (eggplant, squash) and making it taste great. Last night was okra -- usually slimy, snotty goo, in my book. But they made it into bhindi masala, and it was sublime. Truly. Tangy and spicy and sweet and NO slime at all. I eat better at the vegans' house than I normally ever do. (Also, go out right now and buy some Vegan Chocolate Chip cookies from Trader Joe's. Unreal.)

Dude, if you'd waited 13 minutes, you could have posted at 11:11...

Good point! I went back in time and made it so that I did. Typepad is magic.

I hate when things breakdown. We just had to get our furnace fixed and I'm waitng for a service man to look at my washing machine with a bad motor! Uck!!!

You know how it is...between 9-1pm and they come at 1:30. Go figure! :-)

Good luck!

You don't like squash? What's wrong with you? I mean, eggplant is controversial, but squash???

Go, Rachel, go! Write, Rachel, write! Rah, rah rah!

You know that sublime and slime are subconsiously phonetic half-sisters, right?

Did I say phonetic or frenetic?
