Merry Christmas

Here’s my obligatory pre-Christmas blog. Which includes the awesome ode to Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson. I’ll never get tired of this.

I’ll keep it short. I’ll hold off on saying anything snazzy or snarky. Snarky can wait until the new year.

I’ll save my analysis of how 2018 went for me personally for next week. That might be quite be the blather. I might even mention 2019. That might be a bit of a blather, too. Which means I should start working on the next blog post sooner rather than two hours before midnight Monday.

Oh well. I can try to be better organized about this.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, folks!

Have a good one.

Boring and busy

Frankly, I’m fairly boring or fairly busy. Between writing and family, I have little time for anything else — Harlan Coben

Yeah, I’m either fairly boring or fairly busy. Sometimes, I think I’m simultaneously both. And I think between writing and life in general, I probably do have little time for anything else.

Where am I in the spectrum between boring and busy? Leaning towards fairly busy and that’s only because I’m trying to finish up a piece of writing before I jump into another one which I’m hoping to start on Tuesday.

Then I have three specific movies I have to watch that are related to one of my long-term projects. Call it research and homework. Maybe I can binge watch over the Christmas holidays.

I can’t fucking believe Christmas is next week. I’m not worried about shopping for gifts. That’s easy. Gift cards. Easy peasey. And I don’t have that many people to shop for. Then there’s food I want to make, such as no-bake chocolate oat bars. God, those are so good. I’m still craving pancakes. Make a batch, put it in the fridge, take ’em out and microwave them for a quick meal.

Anyway, I hate to make this short but I’ve got writing to do, movies to watch and sleep to catch up on. I guess it’s true that there is no rest for the wicked.
