Why haven't I been writing?

I am in a strange place these days.

I'm either really happy and just enjoying it too much to write about it, or I'm cranky and annoyed and don't want to commit anything in writing that I won't want to read later.

Strange, isn't it?

Is there a happy medium or am I destined for one of those roller coaster kinds of lives - where there are amazing highs and frightening lows, but not a whole lot in the middle.

The more I think about it, the more I realize I probably wouldn't want the middle of the road life either, would I? Isn't middle of the road just a nice way of saying routine? Isn't routine just a nice way of saying dull?

OK, so let's say that I'm resigned to a life of mountains and valleys - how do I remind myself when I'm at the bottom of a valley that there's another mountain around the corner? Maybe that's what I needed to put in writing.

A New Post

My dear friend has been on my case to write a new post. Having either nothing I want to talk about or nothing to talk about at all... I am stealing from Dina.


Here's the deal....

1: Type in “[your name] needs” in the Google search:
Lizabeth needs a job, but is either over or undereducated, depending on the prospective employer.

This is from a book by Janet Evanovich, funnily enough - I just read it last month!

2: Type in “[your name] looks like” in Google search:
Liz looks like a rockstar with slurpees.

Lizabeth wouldn't work on that one - but still... I like it - a rock star with slurpees...

3: Type in “[your name] does” in Google search:
Liz Does Her Back In.

Is this revenge or physical torment on oneself? I could go either way.

4: Type in “[your name] hates” in Google search:
Lizbeth hates doing anything the quick-and-dirty way. In fact, she generally hates to be in a hurry at all.

True - I don't like to be in a hurry, and I hate to be late. However, there is something to be said for shortcuts!

5: Type in “[your name] goes to” in Google search:
Liz goes to Doubleday in Landisbury PA (near Carlyle) to play baseball.

Well, I guess if I was going to go play baseball, Pennsylvania is as good as anywhere.

6. Type in “[your name] eats” in Google search:
Liz eats Horseradish.

This is a video on You Tube I guess. Wow, people really will film themselves doing anything, won't they?

7: Type in “[your name] has” in Google search:
Lizabeth has her mother to herself.

Actually, now that she lives in Maine, I don't really anymore.

8: Type in “[your name] died” in Google Search:
He said there was no evidence of how Lizabeth died.

I don't know if this is supposed to count, but it's the first one.

9: Type in “[your name] will” in Google search:
Liz will always be watching over you both and she will live on through that beautiful daughter of yours.

Kinda creepy.

Does that count as something? At least until I'm ready to talk more.
