I'm so amazing... And if I ever get off this couch, I'll be unstoppable!

'Ello mates. What's good with you all? It's been a couple of weeks since I last wrote. I know. You all have missed my ramblings terribly, right? Of course (and if you haven't, let just pretend, mmkay?). 

Boy, has something changed my life in a big way. However, to tell you about it would require a lot of writing, so I'll probably just put it in my memoirs--which I plan to pen in the near future--and you can all read it later. I'm mostly kidding. I really just don't feel like typing it all out (but I do plan to write some kind of memoir).

Anyway, stuff from the past couple of weeks:

I didn't make it to 100 pages for my Script Frenzy script. Did anyone actually think I'd do it? Why, thank you, lone man raising a hand in the back of the room, I appreciate your vote of confidence. But who are we kidding? I spend way too much time watching Chelsea Lately and learning Det. Benson's monologues from SVU reruns to actually get anything done. I did get to about 70 pages, so I'd like to think there's a good chance I'll finish the script eventually since I'm over halfway there.

The Celtics are in the second round of the playoffs! I know not many of you are basketball fans, but I'm SUPER excited about it.

Have any of you had a Pepperidge Farm cookie called a TimTam? They're Australian (are you surprised? Great things come from Australia [not that I can name many things beyond their accents and these cookies]) and they're absolutely delicious. I just recently learned that they're not available during the summer. That's as dumb as the Girl Scout Cookie selling season (John Mulaney would agree). You guys should try some before they are taken off the grid like like a suspected terrorist.

In other disappearance news: I positively adore Sandra Bullock. She disappeared like Jimmy Hoffa (too soon?) only to come back with divorce papers and cute little baby named Louis! I couldn't be happier for her; you'd think she was my best friend. And a heap of props to her for adopting a kid from the U.S.

I don't know if I've ever actually proclaimed my love for Twitter, so I want to do that now.  I LOVE TWITTER! It's so great. Especially, especially, when you get lucky enough to have short conversations with celebs you follow.

I also love Tumblr. But for different reasons.

In the next few weeks I have quite a bit to look forward to.

Some of those things:
-I'm going to try to write a stage play... again.
-I'm going to write a TV pilot for a competition.
-I'm going to write a spec script for a different competition.
-I'm going to buy Steven his first legal drink.

Going. Going. Going.

Well, I'm going to go do something else because I'm tired of talking to you losers (only kidding, course).

Next time, Gadget. Next time.

Where You Been, Girl?

I've been:

Lurking around the Internet. 

Reading all of your blog posts. 

Neglecting my own blogs.

Applying for jobs.

Interviewing with AmeriCorps.

Working on my (untitled) 
Script Frenzy screenplay.

Watching Chelsea Lately, SVU, Modern Family,
Mercy, LostParenthood & Glee.

Thinking about starting an 
advice vlog (thoughts?).

Wondering about Sandra Bullock 
(yes, really).

Playing with my new phone.

Meeting other writers in Tacoma.

Thinking about California.

Hanging with family.

Searching for family.

Finishing up Harry Potter 
and the Deathly Hallows (finally).

Wondering why Heidi Montag might get a 
screenplay produced before I do.

Thinking about Linfield.

Hearing Linfield gossip.

Feeling happy that
I'm not at Linfield.

Missing friends.

Shaking my head.

Loving how karma works.

Having vivid dreams.

Having family game nights.
