Don’t Waste the Day
So today makes four freaking days in a row of blogging. I’m pretty sure I’ll forget tomorrow and the streak will be over but thanks for sticking with me this week.
I really have no idea what to share today. Let’s see… I’m feeling good and have a semi busy weekend coming up. I’ve been a little stressed out about a project that will wrap up tomorrow night. I had a mini-meltdown last night about it but my wonderful friend Andy talked me down in less than five minutes. That’s got to be a record. Andy has the patience of a saint where I’m concerned.
For those of you who don’t know, one of the things I do for fun is a regular podcast. Andy and I started out focusing on discussingÂ lesbian fiction but our little empire has grown so much that it’sÂ barely recognizable now. We’ve got something like five or six different venues under our umbrella and who knows where we’ll be in another three years.Â Â
I’ve been listening to old episodes in preparation for recording our Best of 2013 episode tomorrow night. My memory isn’t what it used to be… I’m enjoyingÂ an episode now that features Andy andÂ me trying to stump one of our very favorite people, Colette Moody, on songs from the 1970s. For those of you who don’t know who Colette is, she’s an author and one our contributors. Her podcasts, Last Call with Colette Moody, are just fantastic. She focuses primarily on politics and society and I love them. One of the things I love most about Moody is that she’s a great sport and always game for sitting down to shoot the shit. Most of the time, we have nothing planned and just let the conversation organically develop. She’s also one of the most twisted people I know. I love that about her.
I’m going to get back to listening now. I was chuckling and feeling good and felt the need to shareÂ a little bit of my happiness with you. I don’t think I actually succeeded but maybe this will inspire you to go listen to, watch, or read something funny. Let yourself laugh and feel light andÂ be happy. Even if it’s only for a few minutes.
