Studying Faux Landlords

I have begun to try and figure out what plans there seem to be in place, that Penelope and Andrew are trying to make life more surreal than it needs to be. I'm used to living life in full logical order, not having things turned upside-down by people who connive unusual scenarios and don't know how… Continue reading Studying Faux Landlords

Passenger of a Faux Landlord

I'm driving, testing out my new car. It drives easily, a welcome change from the constant sputtering and coughing of the last one. The steering is smooth and the windows quick to move when controlled. A flash of blue catches my eye, standing out electrically against the overcast gray sky and white building nearby. The… Continue reading Passenger of a Faux Landlord

Ensnared By A Quote

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. I don't really have a wonderful quote-finding story to give you guys. I just kind of wandered over to Goodreads, not really knowing they had a quotes section, and scanned through. (I really should make better use of that… Continue reading Ensnared By A Quote

Word Crush Wednesday: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

So today I learned I still have a job next week. Right now it's kind of going week-to-week, and it's very nerve-wracking. My contract began in July as a six-weeker, but it's been almost a full twelve weeks and I'm still there. It's good. I'm aimlessly saving money for a mystery thing, I don't know… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Word Crush Wednesday: Lauren Bacall

I've done it again. That silly, silly thing where I map out a post, and then don't write it down? That. As a result, I stared at the blinky little cursor wondering what to write. Then I looked on a quotes site. I do that a lot, browse for inspiration. Trouble is I'm easily inspired. … Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Lauren Bacall

Word Crush Wednesday: Audrey Hepburn

I had something all planned out for tonight's post. I really did, but I forgot to write it down. Not my finest move, as I now have a hazy recollection of what I was thinking about and no idea of the quote I was going to select. This doesn't happen a lot - thankfully, it's… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Audrey Hepburn

Word Crush Wednesday: Madame Bovary

I have a lot of time for Madame Bovary, both character and novel. It's by no means the oldest book in my collection (ahem, Shakespeare; I see you there, Chaucer) or the longest (Tolstoy, Thackeray), but it's one of the first I developed affection for on my own. I could write a thousand words on why I… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Madame Bovary

Word Crush Wednesday: Paul Klee

So, this week marks the 'end' of my six-week work assignment. Turns out though, I still have a job next week. Apparently it could become ongoing, so I shall wait and hear. It seems a very open-ended placement, and the people are pleased with how things are working out. This year I've been working more… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Paul Klee

Word Crush Wednesday: Invictus

So I'm sitting here with a pack of apparently never-ending Maltesers, and thinking. Don't ask what I'm thinking about, because that's the sort of thing that leads to tangents and you might walk away from a conversation twice as bewildered and with half the answer you sought. Here's one thing I am thinking about: quotes. Motivation.… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Invictus

Word Crush Wednesday: Thomas Edison

I'm back to the inspiration mode, because on the bus home I was daydreaming about hammering out ten thousand words of fiction tonight. Whether or not I will start writing remains to be seen, because right now there's a headache creeping at my skull. Trying to, anyhow. I plan to try fending it off with tea… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Thomas Edison
