I gotta go to bed

Here’s hoping tomorrow is much better than today and I just stay the course and get it done.  Its not always gonna be puppy and rainbows and popsicles, I just prefer when its not shit on a stick.

Goodnight friends.

I need like $5000, a lap dance, and an entire weekend of sleep.

Monday

Of course I didnt want to go to work today but I took Friday off and thought I was ready to go back and get it done.  I got there at 8:20a.m. and proceeded to spend the next five hours listening to bitches hack and cough and sneeze and clear their throats and probably pass a shitload of pathogens throughout the place, especially since the vents suck and it just circulates old ass air.  Let me tell you, if you want to know how long it takes for continuous hacking to strip you of your sanity, I would say three hours (though some are surely stronger than I). 

I went to my boss and told him I was leaving at 2.  I did a half-day, got a lot done, and I couldnt stand another moment in that place.  I have to find a way to build my mental levels back up so I can deal with the BS.  Its not the job, which has its moments but I can normally handle, its like the two assholes there that I cant stand, who do next to no work, and always got some shit with them  (and happened to be the people coughing all day).

Anyway, I’m home in my pajamas now, where its quiet.  I’m gonna put on rainymood.com and take a nap.  Fuck Mondays.

A conversation on Twitter got me to thinking.  It was about Lando trying to get chicks in a bar and having to tell them that he was Han Solo.  My response was that “Han Solo could get it but Lando Calrissian could get allllllll of it”.  When I was a little girl I had my fair share of movie and TV crushes of both sexes.  But Lando Calrissian was the first man I remember seeing and being like “damn, that’s a fine man” in my little girl brain.  Fuck Han Solo…he aint got no city in the clouds.

While I havent actually started rewriting or majorly editing the Novel of Doom, there have been some changes in my head.  Anna (the main character but I hate to call her a protagonist because she isnt entirely nice or likable) is no longer white, she’s now Gina Torres.  Kath is black, Trish is black, Angelica is black, Sam Wesley and Lesley Gelson are not white and I’m almost positive Blake Lively is my face claim for Sophie Lindbergh (trust me, its a good choice).

Still working on face claims for the Novel of Doom.  I started this story when I was 13 (23 years ago) and had faces in mind all the time.  Jeff Bridges would play Benjamin Harrison, the producer with the heart of gold who came from an abusive family and battled an addiction to alcohol for most of his young life.  He would be Anna, the protagonist’s, first husband and probably love her like no other did though she could never truly love him back.  He was the father of their first three kids Colleen, Ashley, and Trevor.

Its not Jeff’s fault that 23 years have gone by and he doesnt have the same impishly boyish look I need for Benjamin.  He could play him at the end of the story, more grizzled but still with the mischievous sparkle in his eyes.  But I think for most of the story I’m going with Josh Charles.  I would’ve never thought of him before because he was too young when all of these things were swirling around in my head but now I know him, and his acting well, and I think he’s kinda perfect.

Veronica Webb was the first African-American woman to land a major contract with a major cosmetics company.  I used to rip all the pics of her and Cindy Crawford of of the millions of fashion magazines I owned (I wonder now how I afforded them all) and tape them to my walls.  I wanted to be them. 
And Veronica was one of the first black women I felt like I could actually ascribe to be.  She was young and hip and sexy and famous and even the muse to a real fashion designer.  I lost track of her in the mid 90s when I went off to college and finally stopped focusing so hard on making myself something that would be acceptable in the pages of Sassy or Jane magazine. 
But one post here tonight, from a 1995 Todd Oldham show, made me remember what a huge part of my life she was for five or six years.  And even in 2014 she’s still a goddess, hasnt aged much at all, and if I stopped nad thought about it, I pretty much still ascribe to be her.

In celebration of 100,000 Tumblr posts (not really but it sounds good) I’ve taken off from work today.  When I tell you they’ve been working me to the bone its an understatement.  I need to get some of my mental strength back.  Physically I’m good, taking my vitamins, doing my little exercise, eating pretty healthy, but mentally my brain is like the equivalent of Puppy Chow right now.  So I’m gonna have a nice, relaxing three day weekend and whoever tries to mess that up is gonna have hell to pay.  So…let the awesome begin : )
