Not entirely happy, not entirely sad or funny either random thoughts for your Tuesday...


Do you know what yesterday marked?? It marked 4 weeks left until we hear who the top 500ish quarterfinalists in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest are.. Yeah. I hope I make the cut. I don't know if I should tell myself 'I am awesome and so is my book and of course I will make it because I'm going to win this bitch..' or if I should just say 'Hey, I finished my dang book and that makes me awesome.. who cares if I win?' Hm.

Anyway, word has it that my writing is way better than that Stephanie Meyers lady who wrote Twilight.. (just ask Amy.. she's read over half my book.. in it's unedited like forgot to check your face in the mirror and didn't know you had a giant booger on your face unedited form).. So, maybe I have a chance? Sure, why not.

Depression is a bitch. (nice transition there, huh?) Have I mentioned I'm a nutcase? I am. Social anxiety, PTSD, depression.. yeah. I has it. Too honest for ya? Suck it. Go read someone else's blog.

But yeah. Depression. It's why I haven't posted in almost a week. So next time, say something. Who knows, you might be saving a life. (kidding... kind of.)

Am better now.

Our home school assistance program teacher is coming today. I'm not super excited about this. Aidan is being a poo-poo head about school lately. I love the boy, but damn... do something other than play with Lego pirate ships, dang it!!! The boy just might be the death of me... I hope his teacher has some kick ass ideas on that.. I'm thinking military school..

We have officially gone from 5 cats to 4 (and despite the fact that we were calling the kittens 'Bacon' and 'Sausage'.. no, we did not eat them for breakfast).. Someone I met on Twitter adopted one.. Bacon, to be more specific. Maybe we should have made him sign an agreement to not eat her for breakfast.. hm. We'll miss her. Sausage is still recovering from a broken tail (thanks to my kids..) but will soon be admitted to her 'forever home'.. Meanwhile, Gizmo and Livvy are busy doing their best to make us some inbred kittens... um, yeah. We had an appointment to get Gizmo's nuts removed, but the no vehicle thing kinda sorta got in the way. Uh oh.

I'm looking forward to only having one cat in my house. Seriously.

I read Walking Dead Vol 9 last night. It kinda sucked. But I hear it's about to get better.. I hope so. I almost fell asleep. Now I need to read the Watchmen. I have to finish it by March 6 because we're supposed to have a date to go see it.. a date? A date. I don't remember the last time we did that.. We might have to get a cab.

I've never ridden in a cab before. I think we should make out in the back seat.

Okay.. I should go dress my children before the teacher gets here. Ta ta.


Fun with SiteMeter: referral of the day? someone googled 'beautiful teenage girl's jugs'.. awesome. Yeah, you know who you are..

I am absolutely certain that you write better than Stephanie Meyers. Of course I do have unpopular opinions about her :P

And I'm sure you'll be in the quarterfinalists. I mean, how could you not be?

And don't eat your cats. Glad Bacon found home.

P.S. my parents owned an inbred hamster. It was devil child who ate her father. So, Beware! LOL

I believe in you! From what I read, it was really good. I just had a hard time connecting with the character, being that I am Aman.

I am sure we can figure something out when it comes to teaching our wonder children.

I can't wait til the cats are down to one, it was sad though hearing 3 cats looking for Bacon, that or they were all trying to wake me up... oh well.

I love you.

Are you sure you don't want to get down to no cats?

Hope the book does well!

Casey said...

Cab rides aren't the cleanest makeout environment but I guess they can be exciting.

I hope you cheer up soon, I think it's winter that's bringing us all down. Bring on summer so I can bitch about the heat instead.

Captain Dumbass said...

Hey, I paid more attention to Lego than school and I turned out...

Never mind.

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

Aw, I want a kitty!

And I suffer from depression too. If you ever need anyone to talk to, I'm here :)

ChurchPunkMom said...

AG: Even Stephen King said Meyers was a crappy writer.. and one does not argue with the King. Right? Something like that.. and woah! mutant inbred hamster? you're gonna give me nightmares girl..

Aman: I'm so glad you can't relate to my teenage girl character.. I think I'd be a bit disturbed if you did.. and of course they were just trying to wake you up.. they love watching you trip over crap in the middle of the night (both figurative and literal..)

FM: thanks! and no.. I don't mind my Kelly.. she's always been a good cat. never goes anywhere but the litter box and keeps my lap warm in the winter (except when Olivibitch intimidates her into never leaving the basement..)

Casey: yes.. I love winter. I hate heat.. I will be doing plenty of bitching about the heat. ;) thanks for stopping by! :)

Bridgeburners: case in point! lol.. Legos make geniuses. ;) My brother spent the better part of his childhood with Legos.. and he's... well, he's a mechanic.

Petra: You can has Gizmo.. he's real purdy, and so shnuggly.. I wish we could keep him.. seriously. And thank you, I can always use more people to harass when I'm dumpy.. I don't like to overwhelm any one person too much. ;)

Keely said...

You thought Vol 9 sucked??

Wait...which one was Vol 9 again?

You'd be horrified at the search strings that get people to my blog. Apparently using 'mom' and 'f*ck' in the same blog is inadvisable.

Glad you could play!

Stacy Uncorked said...

Loved your randomness - now I'm all on the edge of my seat to see if you 'made the cut'. :) I used to have a cat named Gizmo...he was such a cool cat. Now we have one named Norman - and yes, one is enough... ;)

Happy Random Tuesday! :)

ChurchPunkMom said...

Keely: Vol 9 was the newest one.. more issues will be coming soon though. It didn't really *suck* I guess.. but it wasn't nearly as good as the first 8.

Stacy: thanks! I'm glad you stopped by. :) and yeah.. 4 weeks is a long time to be on the edge of your seat.. don't fall off. ;)

FoN said...

Dude, having a book completed is a fantastic accomplishment. Very impressive!

Anonymous said...

I think Stephanie Meyers just got lucky. You, however, have talent. Of that, I'm certain.
I love you.

ChurchPunkMom said...

FoN: Thank you! I agree.. especially considering I wrote my book in only 30 days. ;)

Sam: heh.. you said she 'got lucky'.. heh.. and thank you, I love you too! :)

Mama Dawg said...

Date? I think I've heard the term, but I'm not sure EXACTLY what it means. Let us know when you find out.

Keely said...

Oh, I haven't read that one yet cause our comic store sold out. I read the synopsis on wikipedia though, it does sound like it's getting off track.
