Saturday evening, ughhhhh

So I feel queasy and uninspired, how about you? Actually, it's all about the fact that I've successfully put off the Dreaded Black Ribbon Reread for a solid week. I'm to the point where I can't get any further with the rewriting (until now, I've just been writing out expansion scenes that aren't in the original draft at all) until I read through what I have and figure out what needs to go where and, more importantly, who knows what when. But for some reason, I'm absolutely terrified of what I'm going to find after a year or more of the thing being in the figurative drawer, which has led to spending Saturday on the following activities:

>> Play Webkinz for an hour

>> Watch Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School with my sister for an hour and a half

>> Reread half of Love and Louis XIV

>> Read all new posts on Snarkfest

>> Read all new posts on Google Reader

>> Check Fandom Wank

>> Update mood on Facebook

>> Paint nails "Cozu-melted in the Sun"

>> Find flea on dog, itch continuously thereafter

>> Paint nails with second coat of "Cozu-melted in the Sun"

>> Advise Sister Girl on dinner plans

>> Consider giving up writing, joining Peace Corps

>> Realize that I am far too picky an eater to join Peace Corps

>> Consider shower

>> Itch


It's times like these when I start to understand why so many writers drink.

Tim Gunn's Two Cents on Handbags: "Very few people have the means to have a new bag every season, especially when everyday styles cost $2,000 and up. 'Gee, this is a $4,000 bag. Why don't I spend $600 instead and give the balance to charity?' " I love Tim Gunn, but WHO IS HE GIVING ADVICE TO? ARE THESE PEOPLE INSANE?
