BTiLC Check into a psycho ward

Car, Story, Climax

The car is in the shop now. I could actually smell the coolant during the last leg of the trip. I'm really afraid of how much this will cost me. Ah well. It will be very nice when I have my car back. As much as I appreciate carpooling, it makes me feel dependent. I hate that. Like swallowing my pride. Speaking of which, is anyone available to take me to the grocery store tonight? My roommate is most likely bowling and I'm out of a lot of my staples. I didn't realize it until this morning.

I have got to love any story that I write the climax to listening to "Carmina" by Bond. Especially when someone is being stabbed and thrown from a bridge in the story. Caller ID: Unknown is now sitting at 3500 words and besides the final read through I'm going to give it tonight, I'm calling it done! (Brag!) Up next, the final polish of Gamer Girl Evolution.

Thinking of climax, there is so going to be a TMI post later. I am one twisted young woman. Hint: It involves one of the most iconic and recognizable villains of the 20th century and probably not who you think is it. (Yes, Will, you are on the filter already. I checked.)

Thankful Thursday

I was mentally composing some "Thank You"s in my head when I remembered it was Thankful Thursday!

1. Thank you to fullcontactmuse for carpooling with me to work while my car has been on the fritz.
2. Thank you to jw1176 for taking me grocery shopping tonight.
3. Thank you to whomever it was that sent me caramel and apples from Harry & David's. Caramel is a favorite around here.
4. Thank you for the fact that the problem with my car is only the leaking heater core and that it is covered under the warranty (unlike the $400 of carpet I'm going to have to buy to replace the coolant ruined stuff).
5. Thank you to shaharazard, macklinr and ivan23 for working with me on TEoP.
6. Thank you to artistic_chaos for sending me Vin Diesel pictures when I'm feeling down.
7. Thank you to unkyrich for all the new music! Oh! New music!!
8. Thank you to all my friends who have run into my bad mood lately and still talk to me.
