Things found in my WIP(s) this week:
Several thousand new words, including a few like this:
I stop in front of my dad’s bedroom door. The status board says, “Out,” but I peek inside, anyway. Empty. The status board came into existence when I was seven years old, and able to read proficiently. The options are: Out, Awake, Sleeping, Working, and Busy. I learned early that I could interrupt anything except ‘Busy.’
Things found in the Democratic party this week:
Unity, excitement, and pride.
Things found in my heart during the Democratic National Convention this week:
Happiness and hope.
Things learned Tuesday:
Weird Al Yankowic was at the Oregon State Fair Monday. (My 10yo actually cried when he found out he’d missed him.)
Things found on my windowsill:
Things found on my iTunes’s “Recently Added” playlist (all for my son):
4 episodes of The Flintstones – yes, he is finally experiencing the genius of The Flintstones and he loves them as much as The Simpsons.
Eminem’s “When I’m Gone” (audio and video)
Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”
Ozzy Osborne’s “Crazy Train” (It’s true … Guitar Hero and Rock Band have introduced a new generation to old head-bangers.)
Things found in my dogs’ ears:
Eeeeek! The vet showed them to me under the microscope.
Things found in the upcoming weekend:
An extra day. Yay!
