The Calm Before the Storm

 After some rather mad preemptive housecleaning this morning (my cleaning playlist for today below), I decided the best thing to do to prepare for an insane November writing and holiday schedule, is to flop on the couch all afternoon and into the evening wearing my pj's and watch some of my very favorite happy movies. It was a perfect rainy day for my little movie festival for one.


  Finally, after 3 films, I thought I was feeling bed sores coming on... plus eating junk all day surely wasn't healthy or filling, so I pried my arse off the sofa and ordered a pizza. Still not particularly healthy, but oh-so satisfying. Popcorn and Reeses peanut butter cups only go so far. Pizza has substance.

Somehow, I ended up back on the couch flipping through our thousands of channels (we have the dish) and on HBO or one of the movie channels I landed on a movie called P.S. I Love You. If you havent seen it, it is so damn depressing. I sobbed and will never watch that movie again. That said, Gerard Butler never looked so good, and his character...hot!!!

The child came home to find me still in my jammies, sobbing, with a pile of used tissues and pizza crumbs next to me.  She just smiled sweetly, hugged me, plopped a kiss atop my head and fetched herself a slice of pizza. She knows I can cry watching a commercial (sarah mcclaughlin and the spca anyone??). She's met me before.

This is how I prepared for  NaNoWriMo.  I did NOTHING. Which I never do. It felt great. Very relaxing.
Well, I did clean for 3 straight, sweaty hours in the morning. So,in fairness, I did totally do something. Then I did nothing.

P.S. While cleaning this morning I listened to:

Owl City
Landon Pigg
Jet
Brand New
Spoon

Happy Halloween!!

Lola Sharp
My name is Lola. (I'm not a showgirl) Yes, L-O-L-A Lola. It's the least of my worries. Let's move on, shall we? This blog is mostly about my misadventures on the journey to publication and beyond. My passion for lush prose, quirky characters, art, music, literature, performing arts and anything creative will be a major theme here. This journey of mine will not always be pretty. Much like rubbernecking a train wreck, I know sometimes you just can't help but look at the carnage that is often my life. So strap on your neck brace, helmet and 5-point harness and come along for the ride! Licentia poetica.
