THURSDAY 24th, 10:10 pm — [staring at novel, listening to Trainspotting soundtrack] I want to watch Trainspotting.
THURSDAY 24th, 10:50 pm — [staring at novel, listening to Marie Antoinette soundtrack] I want to watch Marie Antoinette.

FRIDAY 25th, 2:50 pm — [waking up from nightmare in which editor sends me forty-five page long letter telling me how horrible my revisions are and that I ruined everything] *sob sob sob*
SATURDAY 26th, 1:40 pm — [eating applesauce] "I SMELL! THIS HOUSE SMELLS! ArrrGHHhRHghghghghg!!!" [runs out of house with bowl of applesauce] [eats applesauce on front porch] [takes off running down the street] [slows to walk] [comes home] [brings empty bowl back inside] [goes back to work]
SUNDAY 27th, 4:10 am — [staring at novel] Alan Tudyk seems like such a cool guy. I wish we were buds. I bet he'd be really fun at a barbecue.

TUESDAY 29th, 8:00 am — [crawling in bed as Jarrod leaves for work]
ME: All aboard the Sleepytown Express. Choo choooooo.
ME, three minutes later, thinking about non-joke train joke: Ha! Ha!
ME, thirty seconds later: Ha!
ME, ten minutes later: Ha! Ha! Ha!
ME, ten seconds later: Zzzzzz.
But . . . I've also had tons of fun ideas for posts in October. Please hang in with me just a little longer while I finish these revisions. Thank you, everyone, for being so understanding.
I miss you.
Thinking of you lots.
I really like your hair today. Did you do something different?
