Holy crap. I started writing the long suffering baseball novel yesterday. I am slowly putting together character files/sketches, but I have the names all set up and the overall team put together.

I have the opening scene mostly written and so many little dialogue pieces floating in my head.

Ultimately, my focus for 2011 is still In The Spotlight, (because it is my first love, and I can never leave Ava, Ryan, Lily, Nathan, and the rest of the story behind) but since my pledge for this year's [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout is 150K words, I thought I'd put another project into play. Right now, the baseball fic is called Stealing Second, but that is absolutely subject to change. I actually have the title 3-2 Count fluttering around in my brain, but who knows.

I also have a hankering to get back to the NCIS series and work with Tony and Hannah again this year. We shall see.

2011 is going to be great. I can feel it. I've got school starting in a week from Monday, and I've got my sweet Cody kitten keeping me happy, and I'm hoping that I will keep my job after this week. My boss is deciding which of the holiday hires to keep on. I am hopeful I will be one of them, but I also know that it's not the end of the world if he doesn't keep me on. I love my co-workers and the place of work in general, but I've already decided that if I should happen to get let go, I will get through the first month back in school, then job hunt again. With luck, I will be done with my AA degree by the end of 2011, or Spring of 2012 at the latest, and I can dive into a new career with a renewed energy toward work. But I can't lie...any good vibes you're willing to share with me about keeping my current job or at least awhile longer would be appreciated! =)

Ugh. Off to bed. Seriously. Work at 10 am.

Happy 2011 to you all! This year will be excellent for so many reasons. I have a good feeling about it. *g*

Things have been crazy busy lately. Work stuff, traveling for work, and lots of excellent personal stuff happening.

The biggest thing is that I've been searching for a new place to live come this summer, and as of today, unless something majorly drastic happens, my offer on a two-story townhouse was accepted! I signed the paperwork and gave the first $2000 up for the deposit. I'm so excited. It was the place I wanted, and I knew it was the right place as soon as I saw it. It's got an ideal upstairs with the perfect spot for my computer desk (for Chris the HP) and writing stuff. I'm really happy. And again, unless something weird happens in escrow, the place is mine. Plus, it's a bit closer to work and in a great neighborhood/complex. Plus, the offer the seller accepted was way lower than we thought they'd take, plus they're kicking back a bit of the closing cost! I'm feeling oddly accomplished with my first home buying...and I'm feeling like a grown-up. Heh. My family has been so awesome with the help, and they're just as excited. Same goes for my co-workers and good friends, who have been so excited for me and have been just as anxious as I have for any news on the offers and the places I'd found. I'm grateful for a lot of the people in my life.

So yeah, the next two months are going to be very busy as the escrow process occurs and I hope and pray nothing goes south. I will be keeping my fingers crossed for days, methinks. I am happy, but cautious.

Random things: Glee rocks. Just...it's awesome. I'm just in love with it. Meep.

And Sunday night's Academy of Country Music awards? Freakin' awesome. Let's put it this way, Song and Single of the Year and Top Vocal Group? The right winner won and I may have cried for said winner. Same goes for Record of the Year and Female Vocalist. Totally deserved. A bit bitter about Male Vocalist and Entertainer, but I digress on that. Moreso bitter about Entertainer of the Year. Seriously?! Coughcough. Also, Top New Artist was deserved too...the artist makes me smile a lot. Heh.

So yeah, busy busy times. I love it. =)

Happy!

It's been awhile. Not a ton to say,but hey.

Valentine's Day was nice, and spent with my parents. Saturday we went to a later lunch and went to the movies. The mom and I saw "Valentine's Day" (love!), and the dad went and saw "The Wolfman". There was drooling over Eric Dane by me, for the record. Guh. Just guh. But the dad gave me a pretty red rose (which sits on my nightstand at the moment) and a Target gift card, and the mom gave me a gorgeous new pink purse and matching wallet. Hee. I am addicted to pink and to purses.

Work is good. Tiring, but good.

Am trying to plan a trip to Oregon in April to see the BFF (hahaha!), her husband, and my niece and nephews. Hoping it will all pan out! It also looks like Dad and I will be going to Vegas sometime this summer. I haven't been there in 7 years!

The writing is a challenge so far this year, but I'm relatively sticking to it! Some days are better than others, let me tell you! I have so much story in my brain, and yet, sometimes it just doesn't flow. But I'll get it there, and by golly, I'll have 100k written for In The Spotlight. Because...yes.

Music wise...am completely in love with Lady Antebellum's sophomore effort "Need You Now". They sound amazing, and there's not one song I skip. Amazing songs again. NYN is a given, but I'm in love with "Love This Pain" and "Hello World". Gah. And I lovelovelove how Charles thanks his brother Josh again in the liner notes. It made me smile. I am so looking forward to Josh's new country album within the next few months.

Am currently listening to several live shows from John Mayer that I dled yesterday. He's been doing "In Your Atmosphere" again lately---I love that! At Birmingham, he mixed it with "Something's Missing". Sigh. Love! And geez, he did "Free Fallin'" too. He's trying to kill me. Seriously. I'm still in love with Battle Studies as well. Heartbreak Warfare just kills me. Thank goodness it's the current single!

Ugh. Bed now. Work most of the week, and have Friday off. I've been glued to the Olympic coverage, and I'm knitting a blanket for a friend/former co-worker who is having a baby this summer. So many projects! Heh.

Hope you all are well. Good night! (morning?!?)

It's been a very nice Christmas week. Work out the wazoo. It's been very busy, which is good for us retail grunts. Heh. The boss (Summer) gave us (her managers) a cute card filled with gift cards to restaurants in the Village, which rocks.

Spent Christmas with the parents, of course. Went to the house after work on Christmas Eve, had sandwiches and snack stuff, and then we opened presents. My family, as always, was way too good to me. They got me lots (and I mean lots) of makeup (which, anyone who knows me knows I have an addiction to lip gloss), plus a pair of gorgeous handmade glass earrings, two new necklaces (an S pendant and a silver cat pendant), a new bluetooth headset for my cell, an Amazon gift certificate, a gift card to Ulta, stuff from Bath and Body Works, and Britney's "Curious" perfume (it's one of my favorites).

But the two big ones were amazing. Mom got me and my dad tickets to the June 25th, 2010 Giants/Red Sox game at AT&T Park. Color me so beyond excited, and already hoping the Timmy is pitching that night. Hee. Then, the parents got me a brand new digital camera. My old one was pretty lousy, and they knew I wanted a good one for when I go to concerts and things. So they got me a fantastic new one that I can't wait to start using, Maybe I'll actually put new photos up on Facebook. Haha.

All in all, a fantastic Christmas. We went to see "Sherlock Holmes" yesterday and had a good time...a very entertaining movie!

Put in my writing pledge for 2010 with [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout. I am going to write 100K words this coming year, but on a single project. I'm going to settle in and focus on the nvoel this year for sure. I'm seriously going to flesh things out and make it come together, along with really developing these characters that I love so much.

Planning a trip to Oregon to vist Rach, Jason, and the kids in February. I miss my BFF terribly.

Addicted to Lady A's new song "American Honey", along with all the songs from Glee. Lovelovelove!

Oy. Bed soon. Hope everyone's holidays have been excellent!

Um. Eep. I apparently haven't updated in six weeks. Color me a slacker. I have no real excuse except for work has been crazy and I've just been distracted by other things lately.

Yeah. Work is good. I love that place, I really do. Business is good, and we're really gearing up for holiday. I've been with EB for almost 10 months now and it feels like home. The 'place I used to work' didn't feel like home for a good year. Now? I'm so--happy. Even when I have to go in and work on my day off, I know I can complain to my boss a bit and get a chuckle out of her, and then I can get over it and get my butt on the sales floor and run the business! Love it and my work peoples.

New music rules my life. I've really been stuck on Miranda Lambert's "Revolution" and Michael Buble's "Crazy Love" the past couple of weeks, and I am beyond excited for John Mayer's "Battle Studies" next month. Finally a new Mayer album! YAY! Also psyched for the Glee soundtrack. January 26th, 2010 is Lady A's sophomore record, "Need You Now". Woohoo! Now if I could just get a new Josh Kelley album and Josh Groban ("Who is Josh Groban!?! Kill yourself!") album, all would be good.

TV rocks this season. Glee rules my life at the moment. I am nothing if not a Gleek. The Big Bang Theory owns me, as I adore Sheldon. Jim Parsons is the most adorable thing. NCIS and CSI: NY are awesome again this season, and my CSI: Miami is so back to the show I adore. Loving this season to pieces (how can I not love my red-haired boyfriend!?). Also loving Grey's Anatomy again this season. And as wrong as it may be, I just cannot get into NCIS: LA, regardless of how hot LL Cool J is. Maybe I'll watch it after the season ends and see. It's just not my thing at the moment, I suppose. It's nothing without my Tony. Heh.

Writing is still going strong for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout. I'm up about 10,000 words on the year, so this is of the good. I have dug back in to the novel a bit more lately, as the muse may possibly be creeping back there. If I could keep the muse on that subject, I would be a happy camper!

The parents got me a Wii for my birthday a week or so ago, and I've been having way too much fun with that thing. Addicted to the bowling, baseball, and tennis. Bought MLB 2K9 for it the other day, since my Timmy is the cover boy. have been fussing with the Wii Fit thing the last few days too. I love the hula hoop!

Yeah. Rambling now. Off to write...or something. =)

Writing is still going strong for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout. I'm up about 10,000 words on the year, so this is of the good. I have dug back in to the novel a bit more lately, as the muse may possibly be creeping back there. If I could keep the muse on that subject, I would be a happy camper!

The parents got me a Wii for my birthday a week or so ago, and I've been having way too much fun with that thing. Addicted to the bowling, baseball, and tennis. Bought MLB 2K9 for it the other day, since my Timmy is the cover boy. have been fussing with the Wii Fit thing the last few days too. I love the hula hoop!

Yeah. Rambling now. Off to write...or something. =)

before I keel over from the effects of the NyQuil I took not long ago. Fairly sure UI am both slightly sick and dealing with an allergy attack that has taken my vocal cords over once more. At least now I know the trigger. Ugh. Anyone who knows what my voice sounds like normally--now think of it a good octave loer and all croak-y. Yeah, real attractive, let me tell you.

On the up side, at least I am not up to par this weekend instead of this coming weekend, as Dad and I are going to one more Giants game. This'll be our fifth game of the season! We've seen the Timmy three times, Randy Johnson once, and this time should be Jonathan Sanchez. Whee! If not, it'll either be Matt Cain or Brad Penny (who, by the way, was an awesome addition to our rotation!). I was hoping for Barry Zito, but perhaps next season. *g* This last game we are going to, I am going all out orange and black. May even go and get my nails done in team colors. We shall see. I have jewelry all ready, my scarf, my jersey, and black and orange ribbons for my hair AND I bought a shiny orange purse on Amazon. Meep. I am nothing if not devoted.

Work is good. We've been busy and starting to gear up for holiday. But overall, work is good and I lovelovelove it. I've made some good friends, that's for sure. Am contemplating going to Disneyland with a couple of them around my birthday, but we shall see.

Writing is still good. I've slacked the last couple of days because I haven't been feeling up to it, but I am up over at least 8000 words to where I should be, so I can afford to slack a bit. But I've had a couple of story things in my head lately, so this is a good thing. I went and bought a new laptop a couple of weeks ago. Got a nifty little red Acer netbook for a great price at Sam's Club, and I adore the thing (whose name is Aaron, I have to mention). The mom got a nifty pink zippered case for it, and I got a cooling pad, and I love it! I'm using it solely for my writing, and I'm still getting used to the tiny keyboard.

David Nail's album ("I'm About To Come Alive") came out two weeks ago and I've listened to it non-stop. Absolutely amazing CD, and I am so proud to have been a fan since the beginning. Sigh. Beyond proud of him!

And my dear [livejournal.com profile] bookofdays has gotten me hooked on the vocal talent of Christian Kane. Holy crap with the awesome voice. Adore, man.

Ugh. NyQuil is starting to settle in, as the typing has to keep getting corrected. Off to down some more echinecea and go to bed. Work at 9:30 am. Happy Labor Day. Heh.

Good night.

Still in love with David Nail's "Red Light". And am so proud that it's going up the charts right now. I can't wait until the album ("I'm About To Come Alive") comes out next month!

Work is--really good. We've been dealing with some news the past couple of weeks that has got us all a bit unnerved, and yet so hopeful. So far, the news is very, very good and we are remaining positive about it all. Plus, we had an amazing month of June business wise. Heh. We worked our butts off for it, that's for sure. But I seriously love all my co-workers and never fail to laugh and enjoy my job. It's nice. In fact, today, co-worker Tom and I were talking baseball. We like to give each other a hard time because I am a Giants fan and he is a Dodger (EVIL!) fan. And just--all of them--they're so fantastic. But we're all hoping for the final word to come down as to what is going on in the next few weeks.

And on another old work front, karma still continues to work in fantastic ways. And I may or may not have gloated just a bit when I got the news. Heh. I cannot confirm nor deny it. Really.

Then! Speaking of the Giants above, they are great this season. Dad and I have been to two games so far this season, and are going to the game in SF tomorrow night vs. the Padres. Timmy is pitching and I am so excited to see him again. Plus Aaron and Franny and Randy Winn, and the Panda! Ahh, my Pablo. We're so voting the boy in to the ASG this year dang it. We SF fans are voting for Sandoval, and Ian Kinsler of the Rangers for the AL. Heh. But yay for games. This will be another good time in San Francisco! Dad and I are leaving around noon and driving up to my beloved ballpark. I get to squee at the Timmy again. Meep.

Watched bits and pieces of the MJ memorial yesterday. John Mayer was brilliant as always, and Michael's gorgeous little daughter just broke my heart. Such a brave girl. I so wanted to just hug her! But overall, just kind of a sad event. I hope he's finally at peace.

Keith Urban concert in just over a week! So psyched to see him and Sugarland. I can't wait to hear "'Til Summer Comes Around" live. Gah! Excited for my fourth KU show.

Writing is fantastic. I'm up about 6,000 words for the year so far and it's kind of nice to feel accomplished. I have, however, slacked off on the novel. Sigh. It's so frustrating to be so easily distracted by the shiny, pretty things. (read: Chris Pine and Zach Quinto and various other shiny things!). But I seriously am vowing to get back into my story. I've revamped my cast list just a tad (damn you, Pine! Haha) and perhaps have a fresh mindset on a few things. Perhaps I did need the time away to revamp again. But I ahve to work more on it, or I'll never feel like I've accomplished what I was hoping to with this year-long writing challenge.

Randomly--I need a new moodtheme. I need to hunt down a Star Trek one, seriously.

Off to be relatively productive--and pack my bag to take to the house tomorrow. Must find all my orange and black gear. My jersey, my Timmy shirt (which I now want an Aaron Rowand one too!), my SF sweatshirt, and my self-knit scarf. Also need to paint my nails orange like I do for every game we go to.

Good night!
