What's new... [Oct. 28th, 2005|11:02 am]
[mood |busybusy]
[music |Killers ~ All These Things That I've Done...]

Halloween is upon us...almost anyway!I just love it and it has cooled off nicely, so that improves my mood. I hate to sweat in my festive costume.

I am trying to forget that I am supposed to be in fucking New Orleans RIGHT NOW.

I have fabulous wicked fairy wings for Halloween trick-or-treat, and I am sporting my traditional witch garb for work. My hat rocks...*cackles proudly*

The child will be a festive black kitty with a white tummy. Her costume is a darling velour catsuit with a tail and head-piece so ears too. Plus lovely cuffs and collar in white feathers, and a pink bow. I will try to get a picture up but I suck with the digital camera. I have decided to ask for one for Christmas and I even found the one I want, so yay!

Also I have started shopping for the big Christmas so that's good. Not much but I am getting my list together and such.

For some reason I have been listening to Killers all the time and I freaking love the song "All These Things That I've Done". Yeah...you know you've gotta help me out yeah, oh don't you put me on the back burner...I got soul but I'm not a soldier... They just rock.

I have massive cleaning and organizing to do, errands, grocery, burn the Third Grade horrid teacher in effigy...did I say that out loud?

Also...it is time to get serious with my re-write. I have been researching and getting the info I need to re-work the intro and reinvent the character who requires edge, but I am beginning to think it will mean pretty much starting over. I should be able to plug back in some bits but generally it will mean new stuff.

Any insight from those of you who write would be appreciated. What is your slant on re-writes and edits?

Ok, gotta gear up to head out and errand before Friday turns to madness.

Kisses darlings...

I am ready to call Tater Red's and order a Voodoo doll online.

The Tater is a nutter...he can probably do the curse himself.

With re-writes I usually expect to change almost everything slightly, just leaving the stuff that I really like. My problem is usually changing tense half way through the story or moving from 1st person to 3rd and vice-versa.
I love the killers but they're playing on the same day as Greenday and we already have greenday tickets. :( oh well.

Nothing wrong with Greenday. I bet that will be a FABULOUS show...they appear to be quite good live. My cousin saw them here recently.

Well, at least I got to see Coldplay this year. They were fantastic.

woot for the costumes.

My little sister is a rockstar.

And my little brother is...er...dead. And so now my sister is insisting on being a dead rockstar. Much cooler apparently.

I'm not sure what I'll be. Maybe I'll be dead too.lol.

You could be a 'Dead' Babysitter.

I wore my fabulous hat to Pumpkinfest today.

It was perfect Halloween weather.

I wish I was in New Orleans and KAtrina had never happened.
