Good Morning

I’m washing my work uniform. One good thing about having a uniform to wear to work, you always know what you’ll be wearing. I wish I had an extra shirt and pants though. I do have 2 but it would be nicer to have 3. Still, I don’t have to worry about them getting worn out from all the washing. The company provides more shirts and the pants were just cheap polyester.

I work at 3 this afternoon. I’ve been getting some morning shifts, that was really nice. Easier on the car too. I still worry every time the heat gage goes past the second line. No more big problems so far though.

Sounds like someone is back, just walked in the door here so I guess I’m offline until tonight.

I Really Want a Trip

I want to go farther than Ontario. At least as far as Manitoba, the next province over in a westerly direction. I was looking up the Greyhound bus fares tonight. If you get your tickets two weeks ahead it’s $124 return. Not sure if that includes those pesky taxes though. Still, under $150, not too bad. It should be even better in off season, around my birthday. If I can hold out until after my birthday (and all that Christmas stuff that just keeps getting in the way, taking credit for the holiday) the fares will be pretty cheap.

Once upon a time when I was not 30 yet, I went out to Vancouver with a $400 pass, good for 3 months worth of travel. Those were great trips. Solo woman traveler, the best way to go!

Anyway, I really really really want a trip! Did I mention that? I wish I could drive out there. But, the car is not making happy anymore. It stopped being fun to drive afer the radiator blew a few weeks ago. Now I dread every shake, noise and grind that thing makes. I have a terrible feeling there is something wrong with the transmission now. If so, that car has seen it’s last roadkill.

Hi Kareem :)

Hi Kareem, I did the newbie thing and replied back to the auto notification email sent through Live Journal. So, you’ll never know what devious little things I said. It was all really fabulously clever too. Not that I can remember any more, but I know it was really good. 🙂

I’m downloading that HTML program for Live Journal tonight. Thanks for the link. I looked at the downloads the other night but decided there were too many to choose from. Besides I only wanted something to do one simple little thing. Anyway, it’s really hot and humid here tonight. It’s starting to cause fogginess in my brain. I know it’s not that I’m tired. I got tired of being tired and I rebelled against the whole tired idea. Now, I’m just… sort of laid back. Yeah, that’s it… laid back. Never tired.

Hair on the back of my neck.

I’m happy to have hair on the back of my neck again. Not growing out of my neck but caressing my neck and the nape of my neck as one’s crowning glory should.

My hair is finally growing out of the really bad short hair cut that everyone else on the planet likes, but me. I will be so glad when it’s long enough to stick back off my face again. I miss using all my little hair clippie things and they miss me too!

Oh, get over it. Hair clippies are cute!

Revamping HerCorner

Here is what I’m working with, so far. There are a few things missing. You can see the before and after by looking at the old page which is up at

The new template will make navigation and the overall look of the site so much better. But, things are slow at HerPlanet now. The owner of the network is having a baby and it’s a bit of a risky pregancy. So everything has slowed down. It’s a shame cause websites really need to keep building momentum if they are to grow and survive. I really think HerPlanet could be one of the best community/ networks out there but it’s tough to get all the wheels spinning fast enough and well enough at the same time

Anyway, that’s what I’ve been doing tonight. I also wrote the latest WordCraft newsletter at BackWash. I wish we could write several of them ahead. At times I just feel in the right mood to blab away forever. Other times I have to kick start myself. Of course, it depends on the topic too.

I thought I would write about writing erotica for the Adult BackWash column I write. That will be a challenge. I don’t consider myself an expert at all. But, I’m not completely inexperienced. So, that will have to do. Plus, I’ll read what is out there by those who are also experienced. Experienced writing erotica… get your mind out of the gutter!

I wish Live Journal was more like a blog. It’s so nice to have HTML formatting for your links. I guess here you have to manually type in all your HTML. I’m not quite that geek orientated. I’ll just type in the URL instead. After all, this is supposed to be fun, relaxing and goofing off time. I get paid when I work.

Getting Started

I’ve been missing my blog, being able to post all my raggedy thoughts and links. So here I am.

Now, of course, I have nothing to post really. But, as an introduction…

I’m a freelance writer. I write columns for BackWash, online. If you’re dying of curiousity, or just addicted to URLs (I am) you can visit BackWash here:

I have a site for writers:

That’s a start. If you know me you can list yourself as a Friend. If that’s how it works here. I’m still fumbling and wandering around.
