Ignoring Ryan Gosling

I didn't spend on one of my credit cards for almost a year, the raised my limit by $1000, Bay area FasTrak gives me like $5/mo to come back to SF, Netflix just gave me two free months because I canceled in June-I wonder if I ignore Ryan Gosling more often it will have the same effect.

I have been ignoring him, Jake Gyllenhaal, Colin Farrell, etc.. for years now-come on boys! ;p

I mean, seems like the more you ignore something, the more it comes to you...right? Is all of life like a bad boyfriend? I gave up TV writing last summer to work on my YA book series, and BOOM! TV writing job falls in my lap. I give up looking for work and jobs come out of the wood work. It's really interesting how things like this happen.

I swear I am now getting credit increases left, right and center because I am not spending-shouldn't it be the other way around? I mean the reason I am not using your credit card is one of two reasons, 1) I can't afford it and 2) (The more likely reason) there…

Okay folks, so earlier this morning I was 100% convinced that Obama was going to win and I ignored the internet, but then people starting talking about it and I looked and was beyond shocked that Mitt was winning-What the F? Seriously? How could this be happening, my life was flashing before my eyes as the worse thing in history was about to happen? A tad dramatic? Yeah, a bit, but I am a writer. 

Seriously! RIP A Fellow Writer

I woke up today ready to dive into a new chapter of the year falling back into the proper standard time Starbucks in hand and then WHAM! I log into FB and see that my friend Laurie has died. ALL day I have been in a state of shock, anger, WHAT THE FUCK?, sadness, grief, disbelief and then all over. What happened? Why? Why? I want to know why? How did this happen? She died from Cervical cancer. WHAT? In 2012? WHAT? How? Laurie!!!!!!! Didn't you get check ups? How could this happen? I didn't talk to her every day, but we were good friends and we did talk a lot about writing. We met in 2009 at the Santa Monica Write On Online group and became instant friends. She was great, full of life, and I am just so upset about this. I know her closer friends and family are even more devastated than I am, but it's just so awful. My father died in June, so I have been terrible about keeping up with everyone on FB, but I remember her posting something about her stomach not feeling right th…

The Little Brain

You have heard the expression-thinking with your dick-right? Not just for men anymore. Us women definitely let the "little" brain take over. There isn't a good way to say it for women, and it's the same thing. I am going to try to never let this happen again-yeah right, right? Right. Okay, so you meet someone and you are attracted to them-that is human nature and what if the Mayans were right? Who I am to deny myself a basic human right just because the wrong brain is leading me? Okay because it always causes trouble? And can make a mess of things? Yeah well...so can other things that aren't as much fun. Just saying, my little brain is sometimes wiser than my big one!
