An Update to the Update, Which was Itself an Updated Update

July 9th, 2009

Hello, my friends.


Guess what?


I’m on a cliff right now. Hanging by my fingernails. But it’s so exhilarating up here! The wind is very refreshing and you should see the view!


Goodness, how I inappropriately love my stupid metaphors.


OK really, here’s the thing. I’m so busy (I edited yesterday from 10AM to 11PM. Totally true story. Then, the packing. (What packing?) Good question.)


Also, shouldn’t someone call SDG&E and tell them to turn the power on in our new place?


And what about the kids? Surely they’re sick of the Beethoven movie franchise and half-heated Mac ‘n Cheese. They probably need to get outside too. Poor Booger sat in the Starbucks with me for half the morning yesterday while I worked. And she was even well-behaved too! Right up until her head fell off from a tantrum seizure.


So what I’m trying to say is:


1) Most likely I will fall off this cliff and expect you to pick up the pieces.

2) I don’t think I’m wired to overachieve.

3) I still don’t have a dress for the wedding. (Thank you for the wise suggestions and feedback.)

4) It’s been awhile since I’ve penned a thoughtful post.

5) I don’t want to die (or be maimed) (or incapacitated) in a plane crash. (Or a car or train crash.) (I just don’t want to die.) (But especially in a plane.) (And super especially on my way to New York in a few weeks.)

6) I will read your wonderful PROMPTuesdays today. I appreciate the participation and always love what you write.

7) I put peppermint extract instead of vanilla in my South Beach oatmeal pancake and what a minty bummer that was. It was like a hot Mentos.

8) I can’t stay away from you, which is why I continue to write these ridiculous updatey interludes.

9) I love you. And I’m not even drunk.

Just a little lightheaded from the altitude.


How you doing today?

If you will just get on that plane and come to NYC I will buy you a drink. Two if you need them (and you just might). You can do it!

You make me smile, Deb, you really do.

I like to take fake hanging from a cliff pictures and show them to my cousins “Look Uncle brian almost fell, can you believe it?”

Cousin: “Why is there a person’s shadow?”

Just be careful. Speaking of fingernails, don’t let them end up in any fish…

(ok, you’ll have to have read my last post to get that but…go home and have a drink ok…)

Eh, who needs a thoughtful post anyway? We obviously can’t stay away from you as well! :)

I’m sure the kids will keep loving you and that falling isn’t the worst thing that can happen. Somethings look better with your feet on the floor.

Go shop for the dress.
I’m good on my end.

I, too, am on the brink of something. Today’s the last day at work before vacation. I am absolutely sick sick sick to death of work, but there’s so much angst and last minute shit and piled up mess there I am also compelled to going in to keep shoveling.

But we’re flying to Paris. And I can’t wait.

Cheap babysitter can be had. All you have to do is call and I’m there. Or, I can do some editing for you.

Oh, and you still have plenty of time for dress shopping.

Yesterday afternoon, my friend, her mom, and I went over to Lake Poway for a concert in the park. I thought of Toots and Booger while there as I watched little girls dancing and having fun. Next Sunday, there’ll be a concert in Old Poway Park. I think you should plan on coming out to play with the family. I’ll save you a shady spot. The guy performing is one who’ll enchant all of you.

“updatey interludes” made me LOL.

If you’re going to hang off a cliff, Sunset Cliffs is definitely a good choice!
