oh. snap. july 8. not a memorable date that, just the last time i posted is all. its The Other Job. The one I have watching OPC (Other People’s Children). im looking into getting another job. in retail again, just never @ Charlie’s Muse. even though the discount was pretty sweet, no job is worth all the drama i had to wade thru @ that place. CA-RA-ZY.

the writing is going well for celise. the second part of her deadline is coming up at the end of august. i think she’s on chapter 6 right now. not bad, huh? i told you i was going to keep a lighter nearby. i havent had to burn any romance books yet. darn. or any butt hairs, for that matter. duble darn. shes made some comments about a new blog skin for my home here. im looking forward to that. i hope ill get some input in the design. i have a good eye for stuff like that, y’know.

she recently decided to make her monthly author newsletter a quarterly newsletter because she says she has nothing “worthy” to say on a monthly basis anymore. to her, it seems like the news never changes (except for the special annoucements and her event reminders).  the first round of agent queries went the way of the dinosaur. it sucked, to put it mildly. she stalled out at 41 rejections, 13 requests for partials and fulls, and 32 waiting to hear back from first contact. it’s been as dry as the desert we live in (although we’ve been getting rain like nobodys business lately) as far as responses go. the last email she got was the 41st rejection. on her bday. back in june! i dont know if thats like a bad omen or something.

shes a bit bummed, but shes not going to fall into a deep depression, either. (thank god, because she needs to finish the first draft of book 2 by nov 1). she said that shes going to concentrate on getting book 1 rewritten and then submit–and resubmit again–next year. as the aussie’s would say, “good on you, author lady.” chin up and all that rot.

school will be starting back up soon. on my b-day. whoo-hoo. and i say that with mega sarcasm. its going to get even more hectic (its not like The Real Job is going to go away any time soon), but im gonna try to post at least 3 times a week.

mon, wed, fri.

yeah. ill see how that works.

cmon, come in. im on the case.

PROM!!!

sorry this hasnt come sooner but ive been way too busy for my own good! you’d think being a teenager is all fun and dandy,  just full of house parties and countless hours wasted in front of the tv; but that’s not the case when you have a job (the real job, not the secret job)!! anyway, i did get to break away from the working world a couple of weeks ago and i went to my prom. it was at this beautiful hotel here, the Sheraton Cresent. sadly i didnt have a date so i went with Party Gurl and Rico Suave!! my dress was white with black polka dots, it fell right above the knee and had this fishnet lace thingy at the botton to make the dress all poofy! (wow i sure do have a way with words huh!! lol!) there was black lace around the upper stomach area that wrapped around to the back as well. it had one inch thick straps (dont dig the strapless). and my hair was in a million curls of all different sizes. i know that sounds kind of weird but i actually looked cute!! my shoes were all blinged out and the matched my “beyonce bling” i had on my wrist and around my neck!! but let me tell you five minutes into the dance those puppies were OFF!!!!  lol!!!!

i had alot of fun but i wouldnt have minded better music though. i mean the only music djs play at dances is mostly rap. and our prom was no exception!! but this rap wasnt the okay-this-has-a-beat-i-can-follow-without-looking-like-the-hoochies-in-the-videos rap. no this was the type of rap music that sounds like they are speaking in tongues for the holy ghost, except with every curse word you could think of! the kind of songs that you can dance to in your car but when you stand up, your feet have no idea whats going on!!! 😀 needless to say i didnt dance as much as i wanted to. but when i did dance…I GOT DOWN!!! LOL!!!!  no one really expects that from the “innocent girl” but as you and me both know….im not that innocent!!! overall the prom was hot, sweaty, crowded, but it was the most fun ive had in a while!!!
