Freewriting: Neurotic At Nearly 8 am

It’s Freewriting, this means I just spew whatever comes out of my head. Pretty much what I do every other day already. I write it all down and then I cut it up into paragraphs because my ADD can’t handle that much to read all at once.

It’s like 8:00 on Friday morning or almost, I actually got in early today. I don’t know why traffic is always lighter on Fridays. I guess that is because I’m one of the few lucky bitches to get to drag my ass into work every damn Friday. I just got an email from the manager that there are fresh bagels in the “food court”. Mind you the “food court” is a cubicle we put bagels and donuts in. We’re very fancy as you can tell.

I had a plain croissant on the way to work today so I’m not even hungry. It’s really nice to be hungry. Is it bad that I kind of miss my days as an anorexic? I always felt so tough back then, being able to go so long without food. That time I lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks was liberating and a little scary at the same time. I don’t think I have that in me anymore, I don’t have that kind of willpower. I forgot my gym bag today, which really pisses me off because I can only workout at the gym during weekdays. Over the weekend I have to find other ways to get exercise…like walking or sex.

Did you know Kevin’s new movie is coming out this month? I’ve missed him so much. I’m thinking about doing a weekly vlog review of television and movies. Is that lame or cool? Maybe somewhere in between. I haven’t changed my wall calendars at work to March, maybe it’s because I’m not ready for March. In about a week it will only be 100 days until my wedding. It’s nice to know there is nothing really expected of me this month, no big hooplas or anything, just me getting stuff ready.

Did you hear about the big storm tomorrow? I am not going to be a happy girl if I have to drive to New Bedford in a monsoon. I hope my book The Time Traveler’s Wife gets better because that will keep me sane in the long ass drive. There will be alcohol there so that may be worth the drive. Oh wait, I did change one of my calendars. Man, I really need a drink.

C’mon over and give your creative ideas for my bride t-shirt! Help a girl out! You don’t have to draw anything, just give me slogan ideas. What should my shirt say as a bride? How would you describe me as a bride in a few words?

    Girl, you are all over the place. But it is to be expected. You have WAY too much going on in your life. 😉

    So, what’s in New Bedford?

    I know. A friend from college who just had a baby is having a GTG. I’m nervous about the rain but I’m just going to see how it is on Saturday.

    My 9 yr old wants to see that movie too! He loves the card games – I think he inherited the gambling gene from his father – nice (not)! Today he’s excited for that BC movie – I think it’s going to be a big disappointment.

    No ideas on the bride t-shirt – i’m bad at that shit – sorry!!
    Happy Weekend and good luck with the snow!

    Randi – No, Mr. Spacey and actually this is his 2nd marriage and 1st if that makes it more interesting.

    Finn – I was like 17 at the time and brokenhearted.
