September 2008


I’m so depressed that I have to work tomorrow. I’ve had a week off, and for once was not travelling. How relaxing. It felt like I was living my real life 24/7. Mind you, I don’t have a career or a calling; I have a job. I sell 40+ hours of my time each week so I can “eat and sleep indoors,” as my mother says. Having a job is exhausting. It’s work. I’m definitely not living by the “Find something that you love to do and never work a day in your life” motto. Why is this? I’ve wondered that since I joined the workforce. This is supposed to be my main responsibility in life. Gotta work. Gotta pay bills. Why does it seem like such a huge waste of time, then? I can only assume it’s because it’s not my calling. Entertainment in some form is clearly my calling. I love movies. I love books. I love books that get made into movies. I’ve even loved some movies that got made into books. So my week off taught me that I really need to get writing, you know, so that I can live in the manner to which I’ve become accustomed. But for now I must go to bed. Work in the morning. Heavy sigh.

That would be the One Semester of Spanish Spanish Love Song.

Oh, and not that it’s amusing to me, because we did the math and your being 65 today means I’ll be 38 in December, but Happy Birthday, Mom!

MEG RYAN 

 

 

Every teenager in the country is reading STEPHENIE MEYER’S “Twilight” series of books (and will soon be watching the movies!). I am thrilled to announce that Stephenie is giving me a rare TV interview on Wednesday! Her latest book in the series, “Breaking Dawn,” is about a teenage girl who is torn between her love for a caring vampire and a sweet-natured werewolf. (Why are the good ones always taken?!) Stephenie was also writing a new book from Edward the Vampire’s point of view, but certain chapters got leaked online, and now she might not even release it! (I’m gonna try my best to talk her into it, or at least have her give me the scoop on what happens!) Then, throughout the ’80s and ’90s, movie producers refused to make a romantic comedy unless a certain blonde superstar agreed to appear, however, if I was ever unavailable, they would always offer the role to my guest, MEG RYAN! Meg took a few years off to spend time with her family and adopt a beautiful little girl, but she’s back and starring in the new film “The Women.” I’m gonna play a game with her called “Peg Meg” — which I’m certain will become the newest craze in the country. Plus, don’t miss a performance by NE-YO who will be doing one of my favorite songs of the summer, “Closer,” from his latest CD, “Year of the Gentleman.”

Oh, and there’s a new post on my Twilight page about Bella.

This also amused me today.

My team leader, Mike, brought his man’s homemade salsa to work today. Rene declared it Delumptious (both Delicious and Scrumptious). Mike and I loved this word immediately and promised that she would hear it from someone else within a few weeks. So, people, this is your assignment. Use the word Delumptious. Pass it on.

So, back to Twilight.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed Edward’s Volvo in the trailers for Twilight or not. It’s not the sexy Volvo I pictured, which happens to be the sexy Volvo Ms. Meyer pictured, too, BTW. Seriously, this seats 5.5 vampires? I mean, Emmett counts for at least 1.5, right? They know Edward’s got an Aston Martin in the garage, right? They couldn’t spring for the full-size?

Well, apparently someone agrees with me. LOL! You’ll love the eyebrows, and the nickname Emmett gives Edward. I’m not much of a material girl, but Bella might be right in reacting as she does here.
