- Buy maintenance antibiotics.
- Get a pedicure.
- Buy a new purse.
- Wash my hair.
I feel too darned lazy this morning to want to do any of those things, even though I must do them. I just want to lie around in my nightgown.
Writing: What I'd rather do:
Write a particular story vignette--But I'm ambivalent about doing that, because I know that the vignette I want to write is crap, and I shouldn't waste my time on it. It's an interesting thing to think about while lying in bed, but once I get out of bed, my brain kicks in and says, "This story bunny is unrealistic and illogical for X, Y, and Z reasons, so don't write it."
I guess I ought to write a little of it, just so I can quit arguing with myself.
Movie: We saw Good Night and Good Luck last night, which I thought was a good movie, but very unflashy, with a decidedly low-key ending. I like the actor who played Edward R. Murrow a lot.
In a way, it was a lot like watching 1960's NASA Mission Control geeks, only they were doing television.
We need to hear eloquence comparable to Murrow's on television again. I miss eloquence and beautiful language in this American Idol world.
