i've had an absolutely HORRENDOUS day. after HOURS of typing a letter to a friend, i had it disappear in the blink of an eye (or more accurately with the click of a mouse). no ones fault but mine-- went to do a final save and then to print. printed a blank page. went back to the doc and sure enough... somehow i got distracted (or drunk...hmmm) enough to save a blank page over what was some of my best writing ever (mentioned before that letters often do catharse some of my better lyrics). makes a good argument for going back to the ink & pad. but i'm finally building up my typing speed...
anyhow, the stuff is lost. and so goeth my positive spirit...
until i started playing a new game i've come up with. ok, 'playing' and 'game' may not be the best adjectives for the activity; what do you think this is, a LETTER? n e who, what i've been doing is choosing one of the interests listed in my profiles section and, staying with the same one all day, viewing every profile/blog site with akin. today's was the MEDIAEVAL BABES, a world/folk group whose name definitely describes their music. the game most certainly helped improve my mood, and i've had a blast visiting all the diff. blogs. i envy those of you who 1.) live in England and particularly IRELAND, and 2.) even more so the ones not only there but all over the world whom have managed to make a living via your artistic passion-- all you painters and especially you WRITERS. (it seems an inordinate number of Mediaeval Babes' listeners earn a living via pen; maybe i needs have one o' their cd's wooing me while i sit here! doubt it would have helped me to save that letter, but migh help eke the caliber of these ramblings nearer those!!! ha!)
ah well, folks, almost time to go slave for some of that green bartering paper. come to think of it, even that aint true; the company has long since given up paper-paying and has gone to electronic means of dispensing compensation!
man, do i hope whoever is at the keyboard there come allocation day has a better one than i did!
why don't i leave ya with a tune from them Babes, and go join the Hermit with a cuppa...
more soon, folks
