I get knocked down and I want to stay down

I wish I had something deeper to say right now. I feel like I haven't written in a bit on this blog -- and when I say write, I mean more than the "WTF is Judy Dench and Ewan McGregor doing in food costumes?"

Part of it's work -- the end of a rather stressful period is on the horizon. It wasn't as bad as the past and it was an interesting challenge stretching myself in ways that I thought were impossible, but I'll be glad when it's over.

Another part is that I've been slowly working on a writing project of my own (not for blog consumption). Most of it is for my amusement -- I've got these two characters coming to life, with a world slowly built around them and dammit, I'm curious to see where this mess goes. I've been logging about 100 words or so a day, when the moment strikes me, which I'm pretty proud of. Most of the time I just take a few scenes, scribble them down and then drop it.

Oh, and I'm getting some much-earned vacay as of Thursday. We're heading to Puerto Rico because Jeff's cousin is getting married there. But now it's the joy of prepping to have projects I promised for work done as soon as possible, packing and getting my ducks in a row.

So yeah, in short, don't be surprised if I'm not in a very creative, snarky mood right now. I don't mean to sound bitchy, but I guess that I'm not exactly inspired to write right now.

Oh wow, leaving so soon?

Yeah. It just kind of snuck up on me even though I've had the reservations and known about this for almost forever. Looking forward to it though -- I deserve some vacay dammit!

It's funny. I've just been really quiet about it because I don't feel like talking about it at all. It's almost like bragging in my head: "Guess where I'm going! I'm a globetrotting bitch!"
