Just when you think you’re on top of your schedule – something happens to knock you off the ‘to do’ pile.
But I’ll talk more about that later – for now – what DID happen in March –
Did I remember that? Did I prepare? Did I?
Of course I prepared! To not prepare would be stupid.‘crickets’
The Pinterest monster wandered by
and snagged me – Help! – and I added tons of lovely new pins to story boards as well as my other random boards – so if you are on good terms with the Pinterest monster (another words – he’ll let you leave his cave instead of just eating you alive on the spot) then go ahead and check them out!
Library book sales are my favorite form of exercise – yes it IS a thorough cardio workout – and one of my favorite things to do – although it is also quite stressful. It REALLY bothers me that other people attend these sales. it downright disturbs me when I see people walking away with books that I WANTED.
It panics me when I see people run past me, literally put an arm down on the table and sweep books or DVDs into a huge plastic wagon. It makes me want to do something desperate.
Discovered two new flavors of ice cream! Yes – THIS IS BIG NEWS! Stumbling across this stupendous flavor was like tripping over a gold nugget in an field of flowers – flowers are nice, but gold nuggets are better.INTRODUCING!!! ‘drum roll’ . . .

That’s right, I’m mean – keep scrolling!
Keep going . . .
It’s basically chocolate with Irish cream flavoring. But we can’t talk basic about this flavor – it’s NOT basic – it’s utterly and stupendously delicious.
The runner up flavor? Snickerdoodle – there are few things more soothing than cool cinnamon.
The flavors are EXCEPTIONALLY good paired together. But if you want a super big, blast-your-bean-off KICK – just get a cup or a cone of Irish Cream – this stuff will knock your socks off!
For a few hours, I think my family thought that there was REAL Irish Cream in my ice cream. It really gave me a buzz, I went kind of nuts. I certainly talked a lot. Which isn’t unusual – I just talked MORE. And very excitedly. And I laughed, A LOT. Loudly. And I can’t remember if I dropped things or not.
But anyway – now I’M WORRIED. What if this flavor GOES AWAY? I don’t want it to be a one time thing. St. Patrick’s Day is only once a year – I NEED THIS ICE CREAM ON A MONTHLY BASIS! PLEASE, BRUSTERS! Don’t take it away!!
And now – randomness.
I was on a film set – and was one of the leading ladies – OBVIOUSLY! 🙂
In and of itself, not so bad – except for the increasing agitation I felt when I realized what scene we were filming. The cast was going to be standing on the deck of an old ship while a killer whale swallowed us whole- not just the people – the whole ship. I found myself staring into the jaws of a mechanical killer whale that would put Jaws to shame. It was big enough to swallow a tramp steamer – or whatever we were on. It was BIG. And in the middle of my dream, I actually thought: Oh no, I’m dreaming. This killer whale is going to turn into a REAL killer whale any second – I just know it – and it’s going to bite me and swallow me, AHHHH STOP!!!!
Fortunately, my dream switched to something else before that happened.
And nope, I have NO idea where that dream came from. I try to avoid watching videos of killer whales, looking at pictures of killer whales, thinking about killer whales, or even SPEAKING the words killer whale, unless I absolutely have to.
This was a bad dream, in the fact that it would be a sad thing for my friend. But as far as someone giving me a beagle. BEST DREAM!!! DON’T WANT TO WAKE UP!!
I ate part of a match – or a piece of ash.
Naturally, I instantly said: “Okay, who put that there?” I just naturally assumed that one of my family members was trying to mess with me – perfectly natural assumption, right?
They are too busy laughing at me to deny it, but afterwards they confirmed that it was my own silly mistake. I ate part of a charred match, a chunk of ash. I wouldn’t recommend it.
What I meant to get done in March – but didn’t.
I might have to stop doing this section – the shame is almost more than I can bare! Is this giving you people a laugh? Please tell me if you guys can laugh with me about this? Is this keeping me humble? Probably. Is this making me INSANE! YES!
Okay, here we go – AGAIN.
Write 40,000 words . . . yeah right.
Hopes and Goals For April
However, thanks to my friends and my local guru (my twin), I have realized that it’s time to cut myself some slack. I’m not going to be able to accomplish the massive writing goals I had hoped to accomplish on my current writing projects. April will have to be devoted to breaking my massive writers block, by whatever means possible. April will be a time for exploration; let’s just hope I find the treasure.
So how did March treat you? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
