Hot, sticky, yukky

An example of typical, American hypocrisy: Giant Stadium parking lot was filled with SUVs, the vehicle of choice for those who attended the Live Earth Concert.

Yeah. Sure, they got the message and are acting on it!

Right. In Al Gore’s dreams.

Unfortunately.

My errands only took an hour and a half yesterday. It only seemed like six hours, due mostly to the migraine. I reached the point several times where I wanted to chop off my head just so I’d feel better. The migraine’s gone today, thank goodness.

Came back, tried to get answers for my two articles by deadline; didn’t, so I’ll have to go without. Watched some stakes races.

Came across a job listing for a piece that’s due, well, today, so I sat down and wrote nearly 2500 words, then shot it to a Trusted Reader to vet while I kept working on it. Will do another polish, send it off today, and hope for the best. I like the premise; even if this market doesn’t want it, I’ve got other places I can send it. The characters are fun and a little goofy; I’d like to do more with them.

Wrote chapters 9 & 10 of Tracking Medusa. It felt good to get back in the mix with Gwen and Justin. Plus, they’re in Edinburgh, one of my favorite cities in the world, so I’m having fun with this section.

Nice morning’s work on Good Names. The murder finally happened!

On today’s agenda: polish the two sports articles and send them off; polish the short story and send it off; work on the restaurant article. Work on a trilogy of short articles for another publication; work on Confidential Job #1; try not to melt in the heat.

  1. I had much the same reaction about all the vehicles driving to the concerts. Yeah, good start on going green, gang. *rolling eyes*

    I’m glad your migraine is over.

  2. I’ve come to the conclusion that my migraines are more frequent and severe in this heat.

    I’ve been cursed with a reoccurring migraine this past week. Now, I am feeling so happy, because it is gone.

    It’s an awful reality. But, I try to stay up, and I hope you can, too!

    truly,

  3. Not to mention the bands flying in on private jets from around the world. It reminded me of Al Gore’s tour to promote his book and then someone pointed out that his carbon footprint is 23X that of the average American’s.

    Yes, everyone, cut back, so that the rich people can enjoy their jet-setting lifestyle without feeling so guilty. 😉

  4. I didn’t see the vehicles, but I did notice that on the website, they were asking you to take these pledges to do things to help the environment. Many of them were things I’ve been doing for years now. Sort of a letdown.

  5. You have to laugh at the hypocrisy, either that or cry.
    You seemed excited for the murder to have happened! *G* Glad things are moving along for you.

    Also glad to read that your migraine finally left, just wish it hadn’t decided to visit me next.

    Have a good evening and a wonderful monday.
