So I’ve been tinkering around with my myspace page the last couple of days, but I have to say it’s a little bit overwhelming. I’ve been so proud of myself for figuring out how to do everything I need to do here on Livejournal, but this is a whole new frontier. All the profile stuff, and messages from people, and what is a bulletin and oh my goodness I’m thinking I should give up the computer altogether and communicate by carrier pigeon. Which is to say, I’ll probably be using it mostly to direct folks back here, at least for the time being.
In other news, I’m hoping to be able to put up some confirmed tour dates in the next week or so. I just got a glimpse at the draft of the tour schedule yesterday, and I have to say it’s very exciting. Not to mention a whirlwind: I will have to seriously be stocking up on my B vitamins before I head out. But the nice thing is that after a quiet year in which I’ve mostly been editing and writing, I’ll have more energy to go out and do readings and signings and meet people. I hope. If not, there’s always coffee, right? So if you come to see me read and I’m all shaky and talking entirely too fast, you’ll know why. You cope how you can. But hopefully, it won’t come to that.
Finally, Gilmore Girls is a rerun tonight, which is kind of a drag. Although it does free me up to watch the update show about America’s Next Top Model, which starts this week. Now, remember when I said that if I want to watch a new show, I have to cut one I’m already watching? This was so I could maintain the balance of the universe, and my household. Well. Because I started watching Project Runway, something had to go, but now I can’t figure out what it was. Maybe Dr. Phil, which I wasn’t really watching anyway, except for the occasional catchphrase, because he makes me laugh. (“Your house is on fire!” is a favorite, as well as “Do you want to be right, or do you want to be happy?” or when he looks at the camera, sighs, and says, “I was going to be a —–” and inserts other, less taxing and crazy occupation in the blank. Good stuff.) And with Idol taking up ENTIRELY too much of my week, do I really want to commit to another cycle with Tyra? I’m not sure. And the Gilmore Girls tonight is the one where Jess comes back, worth watching even if you have already seen it. So maybe I’ll sit out this cycle. Take a breather, a break. It won’t be the last one, surely.
Or will it? Uh-oh. Hmmm.
Okay, I promised short and sweet, and this was really neither. Maybe next time?
