So no more fooling around, getting butt in gear here on the 'Gentle Island'.
Can I just say that is the lamest slogan for a vacation spot ever.
Let's go on vacation!
Wife- Where do you want to go?
Husband- How about Vegas, Sin City!
W-Or New Orleans, The Big Easy!
H-California, Surf City, USA sounds like fun too.
W- Wait, I got the perfect place.
W- PEI, the Gentle Island.
H- AWESOME! A gentle vacation! Let's go, oh did you pack my hand cream and my fancy loofah, honey? (said no husband ever)
|Honey, these loofahs are great!|
What's that?...you're not supposed to use them for ...but it really feels good on my... you use it where?
Ok, yeah you're going to have to buy a new one then.
Back to irregularly scheduled blog.
The writer's group meets once a month at the Queen St. Commons. (We also have the Queen St. Fancy but we aren't... you know. )
There was just four of us today but they are an amazing foursome.
The Writer/ The Actor/ The Businesswoman - as in she pays her mortgage with her earnings kind of writer. As in you could stick a memory stick in her ear while she sleeps and probably have about three different series started. (along with a little wax, hello!)
"Hey Moi(Mistress of Immodesty), let's get together to talk global warming and it's effect on goats."
"Okilydokily! What's a good day for you? I'm free..."
"Ummm, the rest of 2012 is pretty filled up for me. I have 4 books coming out, two screenplays, in a music video about goats and teaching a writing course at a school along with a couple of seminars on self publishing and world domination, so how's about mid spring 2013?"
"...anyda...or next spring should be fine too. Let me just check my calender and get back to you."
The Publisher/ The Animal Whisperer/The Candy Sushi maker - the girl who decides that she likes a book and it should be published. Then why doesn't she just become a publisher, set up a company and do that? Oh, okay she did just that.
(Note: I like toast and peanut butter but the PB is on the top shelf and I'd have to stretch to get it so ..meh. Since toast isn't the same without PB I'll just get back in bed and complain for an hour about how hungry I am....yeah, The Publisher and I are like two peas in a pod aren't we. Makin' an effort! Gettin' 'er done!)
"Did you get that short story done for the writer's group anthology?"
"Hell no! Haven't even come up with an idea yet? You?"
"Noooo, same boat you're in. It's hard ya know...."
"I know, isn't ...."
"...when you have to complete two other short stories already started, beta read a bunch of other authors books plus have a book launch to organize for my award winning author AND make candy sushi. On the plus side I taught the injured parrot some geometry and the one legged snake is now kicking butt on the pogo stick."
The Lawyer/Writer/Magic Pony - from the little bit I understand she resolves crises, comes up with amazingly original book ideas all while floating around as a magic pony. Okay, one of those seems odd.
Fact checking commences...Bing! Finished.
Turns out she does resolve crises in a lawyer way. Check!
Her book sounds amazeballs, (which means awesome, mom) Check!
AND she is a Magic Pony except she doesn't float, silly me, she FLY'S is all. At least according to her roller derby teammates who help her fly around the rink at craziness speeds.
"Hey Toi!" (One third of foreign language dictionary is now been used up)
"That was an interesting book launch the other ni...hold on, looks like a crises going on over there. Back in one second."
"No problemo. I can entertain myself. Dooobedooo ♪I never met you, and this is craaazy, Matt Bomer ,here's my number, don't care if you're gay. It's hard to look right, aaaat you baaaby, but here's my numb...♪" (I have to come up with a second verse to that before I send it to Matt. I haven't noticed any official looking mail arriving yet, so I'll just keep sending him those lette...)
|Moi, can I have your address so I can send you a letter back?|
Thank you...Sargeant, you can now mail that restraining letter.
"I'm back, sorry that took so long but..."
"You were only gone for 3 minutes.."
"...I had to set up a crises intervention back at the office, plus finish a conference call, send my book to my editor and do a video as Magic Pony for junior high girls to keep them focused on their inner strength. So what did you do while I was gone?"
"Oh, geez, where to start? First I...oh, phone's buzzing. Never stops, got to go chat soon.
I'm looking around the table at them all as they busily type up their book, screenplay,sushi recipe, crises management skills and am amazed that I'm at the same table as them.
I wonder what they think when they look at me?
"Wish she would stop staring at us."
"I thought we were supposed to have the door locked with the lights off when she came a knocking?"
"I wonder if we can add our names to Matt Bomer's restraining order?"
