That title has absolutely nothing to do with today’s blog. That was reason enough to put it there. 🙂 Also, I forgot to water the plants. Will have to do that first thing Monday morning.
It was a weird weekend.
I spent Saturday editing and Sunday working in the property manager’s office. I had to fill out Certificates of Rent Paid for all the tenants who gave us money in 2013, and that took longer than expected. Then I had to catch up on all the work I didn’t do last week because I was buried in edits.
Most of you know I’m working on Queers right now. It’s really good, but that probably isn’t a surprise. But I also had two freelance edits (short fic, both of them) and I had a publisher edit to complete. To say last week was stressful doesn’t begin to cover it. There’s other things going on right now, too, but I’m not prepared to talk about it until Friday.
Suffice it to say I’m looking at another stressful week. And I haven’t written anything in days, because there’s simply been no time. Once Queers is dealt with, and a couple other edits, I’m taking some time off. A person can’t work twelve to fourteen hour days, day after day, without starting to go a little mad.
My boss and his wife and a friend asked me to join them for dinner tonight, and that was wonderful. It’s the first time I’ve been out of the house longer than five minutes in over a week. It hit forty today, and I was out without a jacket. I enjoyed Tuscany Linguine with a bottle of Stella beer, and trust me, it was delicious. 🙂
I’m back to editing now, but my ass is dragging. Don’t think I’ll be able to do much more tonight.
I’m posting a photo I found online some time ago. I can’t put it on Facebook ’cause they’ll nail me to the wall for flouting their “moral standards.” I could put it on G+, but you never know when a troll is waiting to jump out at you, though they’re much more relaxed over there if you are careful which circles you show the picture to. This is your warning that nudity is involved. If you don’t want to see it, bail now.
But he’s really pretty. 🙂
I consider this art, but narrow minds everywhere would consider it obscene. I don’t get that. What could possibly be offensive about the human body? How have the Puritans in this country done such a bang-up job of turning parts of our flesh into something dirty? It’s beyond me, and instead of getting better, this intolerance seems to be getting worse.
Unless you’re in Europe. They are sensible about such things over there. America really has to work at growing the hell up. We can “protect our children” without denying adult things to adults.
It’s back to the grindstone for me, at least for the next hour or two. See you Friday.
