Fairy tales

Joined Facebook. Am such a soldier of conformity. Discovered one individual with extensive Hollywood connections. Was tempted to friend. Decided against. Did not want to be complete drone.

Have been looking for blogger backgrounds in red and black. Other than completely slutty, this is best could find without being "cute". Loathe "cute". If you've suggestions, please provide. Google searches come up with "cute". Like Pyzam well enough, but again--slut factor. While something to be said for sexual revolution before my birth and sexual freedom now, would rather employ my assets when necessary and not for constant visual stimulation of others. Really, girls, control your source of power and dole out in small bits.

Am nearly finished with current manuscript. Characters have taken over and extended the ending. Hopefully, will complete today and tidy up prior to submissions as it has already been requested as part of new anthology featuring retold fairy tales. Mine. Ali Baba. Cast of characters alone could have made it an epic. Fortunately, they were all laid off and had only to deal with a few.

Note to self: "Mia, remember to schedule another Pub night. Invite K to see if magical perfume does indeed work outside office or if supervisor is the only fly caught."

Sigh. Blog templates are a surprising source of stress, in my brain.

Blogskins.com had some I liked. Passed one over then wanted it back and couldn't locate. Grr.

This reminds of late 80s. Squiggles look like fancy sword handles.

Well, I'm here! So where are the beer and pretzels?

Mia Watts said...

Wine and chocolate. Must pretend, at least, that we are elegant (beer and pretzels back at your place later, yes?).

Hot it! Wine leaves me with a fit of the vapors.
