So I’ve started dating this guy who lives in Regina. He’s not very interesting, I don’t like him much and the conversation is dull as anything, but I suppose it’s better than being alone so I guess I’ll stick with him for now and then ditch him as soon as I find someone better.
By the way, I’m totally kidding - you see I’ve told this guy repeatedly not to go online and read my column (in case I’ve shared a little too much!!) but he keeps reading it anyway - so I thought I’d mess with his head a little bit. Hee hee.
Anyway, this column isn’t about dating at all, but about the Friday panic! This is the time when I realize the paper has to be done and sent to be printed in a couple of hours and I still haven’t come up with an editorial. AHHHHH!!!!
I actually did just scream, and got some really strange looks - okay, I didn’t really, but I kind of feel like screaming.
Sometimes it takes a bit of panic to trigger any kind of creativity whatsoever...only this time I’m panicking and still drawing a blank - not good. Hmmm, I think I’ll chalk it up to a week of cold medications, headaches, stuffiness and general malaise...that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
I was thinking of simply scrapping the column this week and putting a giant picture of...anything at all in it’s place, but I guess that would be cheating.
So I guess it’s time to just type away and hope that something at least vaguely interesting comes out...
Christmas. Let’s see if there are any ideas there.
Christmas lights are already popping up like crazy, and things are looking very Christmassy (if that’s even a word). Christmas can bring out a lot of happiness, but also quite a lot of bitterness, depending on your current situation.
Not to be a downer, but if anything is missing from you life, like money, family or friends - Christmas will surely let you know.
Okay I confess I’m a bit of a Scrooge this season, because I probably can’t afford to go home. I knew when I went home for summer holidays that I was making a choice, because I figured I couldn’t do both, but it’s still a drag.
Oh, and I was already feeling a little bitter about the outrageously high cost of flying to Ontario and back, when my co-worker walked by and told me about a really good deal she read about. Apparently I can travel to the Dominican Republic, including airfare, accommodations etc. for less than it would cost me to fly to Toronto and back. Gee thanks airlines - way to encourage Canadian travel.
Wow, you know I really hadn’t realized just how crusty I am today until I started writing about it!
Hmmm, one week I write about the flu, next week about how bitter I am about Christmas...okay my goal for next week is to come up with something happy to write about...I guess we all get into a bit of a funk every now and then, but it doesn’t make for a very interesting read I guess...next week I’ll write about something happy, even if it kills me!
