Nothing to Blog

This should be my summer mantra - I'm just not finding things to blog about lately. I've been having good days and bad days living without TD - yesterday was a baaaaaad day. Today was an awesome day (which was helped by my dearest friend sending me lovely purple baby irises and having lunch with a new colleague who was delightful and who paid!). I'm starting to get my feet back underneath me here - I'm feeling better and building a life. I've stopped forgetting that I don't have to wait to eat until TD gets home (I was doing that for a few days - totally unconsciously). I've started sleeping better on my own and in a new house without a security system (which would really rock - remind me to tell you guys about the man who tried to steal my computer from my apartment by jumping in a window...I beat him off with a pillow...). I'm still waging my war against the occasional water bug (fuckers). I think I'm losing weight (this was a huge surprise!). I'm starting to hang out with colleagues once or twice a week - not too shabby!

The slacker article gnomes I've hired have not been writing this article (because the thing won't write itself, dammit) so I might have to redouble my personal efforts. I was hoping it wouldn't come to this.

Blahbitty-bloo.

I'm glad today was a good day, my dear. And I'm happy you're hanging out with colleagues. Hooray for friendly colleagues, eh?

I shall try you for that phone date tomorrow. Is there a time of day that's better for not, er, interrputing the article gnomes that you will be whipping into shape tomorrow?

I like purple irises. I hope they cheer you up.

If your article gnomes don't work for you, you can always send them my way. Or even threaten to send them my way and see if they work harder for you then. You can tell them I only feed them bread and water and i allow my cats to use them as toys.

Maybe we could trade article gnomes. Or just trade! I have an article that I'll be working on as well (*shakes fist*). Let me know if you want to trade papers towards the end of the summer and edit!

I seem to have misplaced my gnomes altogether...

Article gnomes!!

I think my dogs must have been too energetic in degnoming the back yard, 'cause I can't find mine anywhere.

Hey guys - I'm completely willing to farm out any and all of my article gnomes to you guys! I have a feeling that they might start acting a little better today.

Hilaire, this evening would be totally great for a chat! I'll be home with my new computer...woo-hoo!

And Morgan, I would love to trade articles in a month or two! Mine will still be rough, but I know I'll want some new eyes on it - what fun! Just let me know when!

Glad you're feeling more settled in! Remember there's also my friend in the history department where you are who'd enjoy meeting you at some point; I think you'd like her.

medieval woman said...

Oh, P/H, that's right! Could you email me her info again? I'd love to meet her and I can't find your email anywhere...thanks!

Done!

Yay for article gnomes writing a wee bit! Excellent!
