I’m a writer. I’m a hermit by nature. I don’t like people. You have to adult around people. And brain. I don’t do either of those well. Since I live pretty self-contained anyway, this isn’t a big hardship on me. Except Lawyer Guy is home. All day. It takes some getting used to.
Moving on. While I’m not making light of the world situation, y’all have to remember–I’m former military, law enforcement, and fire service. My sense of humor treads on the dark side. Like M*A*S*H. Goodness, the theme song for that show was “Suicide is Painless.” Dark humor, remember? Luckily, I passed it along to my child. Only is the one who shared today’s meme with me. I laughed. Because I write thrillers and paranormal and if you’ve read SEASON OF THE WITCH, there’s a murder of crows in that book. So…
Moving on again. TV. Should I admit to binge watching on “Paranormal Caught on Camera,” “The Unexplained Files,” and whatever the new one on the Travel Channel that’s hosted by Robert Englund of Nightmare on Elm Street/Freddy Krueger fame is? I refer you to the paragraph just above. Also, LIVE PD is in reruns, America’s Top Dog finished last Wednessday–congrats Kai, but I was rooting for Mattis because he was the old man of the group. Mattis did come in 2nd, so that’s a win in this old lady’s book. America’s Most Wanted was new with the 3 hosts contributing via computer from their various homes. Smart. The Masked Singer provided excellent entertainment but the reveal didn’t mean that much to me. Bella Thorne was the Swan and I admit, I don’t know much about her.
I did a little writing. Very little. My mind doesn’t want to settle on one thing. I thought about doing something for my readers–like a brand-new serial story that would come out once a week or something in my newsletter. Then I remembered I haven’t done a newsletter in like a year and don’t have that many subscribers. And I’d have to write the darn thing. And edit. And I do have projects I should be working on and…coffee. I need coffee. And the dogs want out. Or in. And the birds are singing and…it would require braining and adulting. I refer you to the first paragraph.
My wow moment of the week: Stormageddon turned 6 yesterday. SIX!!! How is that even possible? Sadly, his parents had to cancel his party with promises of a big one once the ban on gatherings is raised. He picked out his “birthday cake” for the drop-by/drop-off presents that is happening at his house today (which is when I wrote this). He wanted a “cookie cake”–one of the big chocolate chip cookies the size of a pizza. And he picked out St. Paddy’s day colors and decorations. I love that little dickens.
Now is a good time for comfort reads. What’s your go-to chicken soup book? As y’all know, mine is NAKED IN DEATH, the 1st book in the Eve Dallas/In Death series by JD Robb. I’ve embarked on a relisten of all 50+ books and novellas because…comfort read. Yes, she’s a futuristic homicide detective. Yes, there’s death and destruction. Yes, I’m weird because this is chicken soup for me. And for the final time, I refer you once again to the beginning of this dissertation.
That’s about all that’s going on in my world. What’s going on in yours? Here’s hoping this finds you healthy, safe, and at least partially sane. I’m good as long as I have coffee! 😉
