Hump Day

Hey Imaginarians, it's Hump Day and nothing much has been going on. I did meet with my crit partners for the first time in months and we did get a lot of stuff read, plus we had a terrific time talking as we had a lot to catch up on. I also managed to write a few paragraphs, not much, but I'm getting back into writing at least.

I want to say thank you to all of you who have stuck by this blog and me. I could not ask for a better group of  friends and supporters. I'm making my way to all of you, its just taking me longer than I thought.Coming back is hard and I still have my dark moments.

Sunday was a lazy day for me. I totally did nothing but watch old movies, then the Golden Globes. I watched Arsenic and Old Lace as well as The Thing From Another Planet, plus a Bob Hope classic, Bachelor In Paradise. It was a day for total relaxation around here. And yes, that means I did not watch football. I just don't care about any of the teams this season. I will watch the championship games and the Super Bowl, but these other playoff games were meh. I burned out my enthusiasm after watching the Packers lose at home in a close shave.

I can't wait for the Oscar noms tomorrow. I'm really hoping Leonardo DiCaprio gets a nom because he deserves it for his wildly brilliant performance in Wolf Of Wall Street. Loved that movie, it was so wrong it was epic. And most uses of the F word in a three hour period. Over 500 times. Now that is creative usage of a very versatile word, which also happens to be one of my favorites. I haven't seen it used so creatively since Goodfellas.

  1. I still need to see Wolf of Wall Street. Hoping American Hustle does well at the Oscars.
    I just want to see the 49ers lose this weekend. Sorry, their quarterback is a punk.
    Glad you met with your critique partner and have been writing!

    1. I'm torn because I don't like Pete Carroll, either.

      I think American Hustle should do very well and so should Wolf of Wall Street.

      Baby steps on the writing. :) my crit partners were a blessing.

  2. I've not seen as many movies this fall as I normally do. Not a conscious decision not to, I just haven't. So, I haven't really seen anything of note aside from Thor since this summer... any chance that's up for Best Movie or anything?

    And I'm glad you're pacing yourself in your return. Don't want to get burned out when you're just getting back.

    1. Thor is unfortunately not up for anything. I loved it, though.

      Thank you. Pacing is very important to keep me from getting overwhelmed.

  3. Good to see you coming back Melissa. Arsenic and Old Lace is one of those classics people don't talk about enough. It's the sweetness of the murderers that makes it work so well. My team's out of the playoffs (Cardinals), so I feel the same way about the season this year.

    1. Thanks! The old ladies are part of why I love this movie so much. And Cary Grant is so awesome in the slapstick.

      Here's to next year for our teams. :)

    1. I hope so. I want to keep pacing myself so that I don't get overwhelmed, but it is looking brighter these days.

  5. An Oscar for Dicapricosso? If that ever happens I hope coons and possums eat me alive and end my pains :)

    1. LMAO, Dezzy you are too much. I don't think you'll have to worry about those coons and possums just yet. I think Leo is an outside shot at best.

  6. My writing is on hold too - still putting the blog posts together - but only ones that don't require a lot of words. Ah well, what can you do?
