Baby It’s Cold Outside
It’s one degree out right now, which is pretty warm considering. Not that I’ve been outside today. No I took advantage of my kid staying at her cousin’s house and I’ve been trying ALL DAY on the net to figure out how to get going with freelance writing. I’ve looked everywhere online and there’s so much I don’t know where to start. I’m getting stir crazy in this weather. Hyper and giddy. Alone, I talk to myself with a british accent and I sadly am my entertainment. Come on, we all do weird shit when we’re our only company. Back to the freelance thing–I’ve signed up and made portfolios for Contently.com, Scripted, and Elance and Helium. I’m excited to see if Scripted accepts my submission. It’s a starting point at least. I had no idea you could make so much at some of the sites even just for articles. I’m a savvy researcher so we’ll see.
Yeah I’m warm and snug in my livingroom by the christmas tree, typing away with Bourne Legacy playing in the background–my favorite movie. Here, I’ll take a pic of my view from where I sit right now:
Yes I know they’re sideways. I don’t know how to fix that–I’m using Blogsy on the iPad. But aren’t they cute? Oh she’s growing up. This year she almost took over baking the Christmas cookie cut-outs; I switched spatulas on her for something and she came to me, COVERED in flour, throws her arms up in the air and says “Mom! I can’t work in this conditions! I need better utensils!” aaaannnd she stormed off. She’s nine. And she needs utensils. Sometimes I fear I’m giving her a complex cuz I’m so damn weird sometimes. Eh. She’s loved and she knows it. They really do bloom right before your eyes. I have OCD a little, and those sideways pictures are haunting me. I can hardly write, it’s all I see.
Focus. Focus on what? I have nothing to do nowhere to go. Fuck focusing, as you can probably tell with this post. So, Memoir of a Geisha was a beautiful movie. I have the book naturally but haven’t read it yet. Naturally. Have I bored you to tears yet with incessant babble? Nah it’s early. Perhaps I’ll make the world’s longest post that’s about nothing. I got the greatest gift the other day–the ENTIRE (brace yourselves) collection of the old tv show Hercules!!!!! My damn favorite. Dayanaira sucked but it was a fantastic show. A comfort show, ya know? Can you tell I’m from Wisconsin by the way I write? Just curious. Yeah, Amy, because text has accents. Although I will say text messages have tones in their voices…what the fuck am I talking about….
Well shit I guess I could wrap this up. I do have one more video to share. Emma and I made it after Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.”
Alrighty folks, peeps, motha fuckas, friends, I am off to roam the web. Night. And comment back, let’s chat about shit. K, later.
