You know, during the day while I’m at work, I think up these ridiculous, rather humorous blog posts. Random things, really. Mutterings about people being swipe-happy (I don’t know why this irks me so much, it’s not that big a deal). Jokes about some of the people I watch in the cafe. Deep, life-altering theories on life that I have during bake time. Just about anything and everything.
By the time I get home though, well most of the things are long gone from my mind. They sort of fade with the wind as soon as I push past the doors. I swear, I’m going to bring a journal with me and just write them down so that I can prove to you guys that I don’t just disappear. I really think about you all quite often. I just happen to crash most days when I get back in. And if I’m not crashed on the couch with a book (or snoring) I’m trying to catch up on NaNoWriMo (which of course, I’ve fallen behind on).
Yesterday, however, was just one of those days when no matter how well intentioned I felt, fate had other plans for me. I think it was trying to tell me to slow down. I’ve been running ragged since Friday. My energy level has had to stay up all the time, which means, I’m bound to crash. And it’s a long, slow fall to the bottom. Yesterday morning began with me late to work. Ended up with a flat tire in the pouring rain. Had to wait for AAA to come change it. I’ve decided I want to learn to change tires. As a self-sufficient girl, it makes no sense to have to wait for someone else to do it for me. That training begins ASAP.
Then, at work, we had two new trainees. Now, I’ve been there a little over a month now. I know my way pretty well (though I still stumble like a doofus every once in a while). Still, nothing could prepare me for training. While explaining things I’ve just started to do second nature, I realized just how absolutely inept I really am. That was a fun realization *note the sarcasm* 😉
By the time I got home, I felt beat. I sat down to read New Moon by Stephenie Meyers. Yes, I’m already on New Moon. Well, I was. I finished it last night. I’m off to get Eclipse today. (This series is ridiculously amazing. Just when I think it can’t get better, Ms. Meyers manages to up the ante. The first few chapters of New Moon had me literally clutching my chest in agony. I absolutely LOVE that. *shakes head* What a masochist.)
That’s another thing I realized. Man, I devour books. I go through them as though I were starving for the next word, unable to stop once I’ve started. It’s never soon enough. And once I’ve finished, I peruse back through to reread my favorite parts nearly right away. I’m starting to feel like Augustus Gloup. 😀 Remember him?! Ha ha. Greedy little bugger.
Ok, now I swear there was a point to this post. Oh yes! Cinematic Royalty has been reviewed again! 😀 YAY!!! *does happy dance* Coffee Time Romance has been kind enough to review it, and here’s a little something from what they had to say…
Ms. Isabelle Santiago has written a moving chronicle of an actress’s life and the hidden secrets that haunt those in public life. […] This story had me crying for both characters and any romance reader would too. Great Ending!

Anyway, now that I’m done babbling like three days worth of stuff, let me go make my blog rounds real quick before I rush back off to work. Maybe I will take my journal today. 😛
