So hey, you ever read back through your old blog posts and think to yourself, "I used to be a much more better blogger than I am now?" (forgive me for rambling or making mistakes -- I'm having a couple drinks) I was looking for something in an old blog post (I kind of forgot what it was now) and I started reading my old stuff and I found myself actually laughing. Out loud. At my own blog posts. I used to be a helluva blogger. funny too. Now i'm just a pathetic social networker who checks Facebook on my phone every hour on the hour -- just like the other six-hundred bajillion people on planet Earth.
Guess I'm feeling kind of 'out-of-body' today. And it's not just the gin and Guinness and LeBatts. I also quit smoking for the 412th time. everybody's gotta get their mind-altering chemicals somehow, right? On the plus side, I wrote more than the daily Nano quota today (but less than my own psychotic, self-imposed quota), work didn't kick my ass, and, wonder-of-all-wonders, my very good blogging buddy, KM Walton got herself a freaking mother of a publishing offer today. Ever hear of Simon and Shuster? That's who's going to be publishing Kate's book. Super huge helluva congratulations to you, Kate. Despite my own recent, 'less-than-chipper', writing experiences, I'm super-psyched for you. I can only imagine the mind-blowing over-joyedness you must be feeling now. Enjoy it, my friend, because there will only be one day in your life when you get the fantastic news that you are about to become a published author.
ROCK ON KM!
I promise to pay full price for your book when it gets published. Hardcover. And I shall be pleased to know that much of said cash shall go into your lucky-ass pocket.
What else? Oh. Halloween.
As you can see, we had one helluva good time. I love me some family holidays. And the title of my blog is, after all, 'Writing and Family and whatnot'.
One more thing: I would be super-honored if you would all click the following link. You know I'm a surgical technologist by trade, right? Ever wonder what happens behing those mysterious 'surgical-attire-required-beyond-this-point' doors? This video answers that question and so much more. (See me in drag, dude -- f'real)
Ray actually has a small amount of acting ability.
