Today I knocked off one of the four freelance newspaper articles due on Wedneday. That might not seem so bad, except that I spent most of the day making calls and waiting for calls to be returned. I still have three freelance pieces to write and would like to work on some fiction, ya know. If I didn’t need the freakin’ money I wouldn’t bother with the freelance stuff. Or at least wouldn’t have taken on extra over the holiday break. Oh well.
To make it even more fun, I have a cold. Someday I would like to find a way to create energy out of human snot. All by myself I think I could provide enough energy for a small city. My nose feels like it could crack open and gush blood at any moment.
Enough whining. I’m making my way through the extended cuts of “The Fellowship of the Ring” and “The Two Towers” in anticipation of my first viewing of the extended edition of “The Return of the King.” I can’t wait to see what’s in the new 50 minutes of the final film.
