Detail of 'Yuuwaku' by Audrey Kawasaki
My day has completely imploded, as they gave us the go-ahead to bring in a temp next week to get us caught up on our data entry and filing. Which is nice...except that, you know, who is technically the manager? Me. And who is going to be superivising the temp? Me. So who gets to call around and read resumes and decide what to go with? That's right, me. And I've never done this before, so as usual when I'm not sure what I'm doing, I'm taking twice as long as I should to get it done. Which means I haven't gotten anything else done that I needed to, either for work or for personal things. But it's OK in the long run, as it means I'll be getting this terrifying and growing pile of data off my desk.

Also, just an FYI to everyone posting bug stuff in my flist...do you know what season comes after winter in Minnesota? "Spiders". Don't ask. Seriously.  You don't want to know.

I'll have to check that out! It's probably being kind to call mine an essay - it's probably closer to talking out loud to yourself, trying to figure out exactly what you think about something. It's just such an odd situation; I'm not ashamed of taking part in fic...I just don't want to have to deal with the grief I know I'd get if people found out about it. And yes, inventing your own fictional universe might require exercising your brain more in that direction...but you're also free to change whatever you want whenever you want, whereas with fanfic, you have to constantly work to stay within the already-established parameters of the world you're writing in. It's not easy!

This is kind of depressing. Because that is more or less what I was groping my way towards saying, only it was said far, far better than I could ever say it.... But it's an opinion I've been forming over the past 6 months. I like the challenge of writing this stuff and I like the fact that it keeps me writing. And I've met a number of people who, even if I never meet them in person, I've really enjoyed chatting with and who've pushed my brain in new directions.

*rolls eyes at people* I don't think I'd ever have the nerve to attempt NaNaWriMo, though. I've thought about it for two years, but if I don't have an idea, I can't just force words out. It blocks me up even worse.

Oh, man. I am now getting nervous. I don't know if I ever told you but for some bizarro reason, I joined Match.com. (Bizarro because sometimes I wish I were dating someone...but much of the time, I'm glad not to have to put up with the stupid stuff that goes along with relationships.) Well, I've only met one guy who I liked well enough to exchange emails with...and he just asked if I want to meet up and have coffee. Eeek!

I think so. I mean, what's the worst that can happen? We talk for 5 minutes, he says he has to go to the bathroom and never comes back? And I liked what I saw of his personality via emails.

The one thing that makes me nervous is that in my profile I checked "full figured" or whatever their euphemism is for fat chicks. But at the same time...you never know what someone will say if you turn out not to be a size 8.
