In which we have “sub-par” productions

(written 4 weeks ago and posted before Mom 2.0 Summit) Whatever, quit bitching about it!


I’ve had so many funny conversations lately with Kevin but I haven’t been in the mood to get them on paper so that’s a problem.  I think it’s because I decided to write a book  and I might have burnt myself out.


I also think I have “post-book” depression because I was so anxious to get it all down on paper and now I just have filler so of course, I’m bored.  Yesterday I had a ton of stuff I SHOULD have done:


Insurance crap


Tax Crap

Harassing Daniel about a college thing


And a ton of stuff I could have done:




Writing some blog posts

Doing a jigsaw puzzle

But mostly what I did was feel sorry for myself and eat.  Yeah, it’s stupid I know.  I blame it on the gym being closed.


But speaking of the gym, I didn’t go today but I did go to Pilates and had a funny conversation.  I was taking a class with a new lady, Nancy, who was telling Amanda (my instructor … and friend … but not like besties or anything ya know) that she had a dream about Amanda’s wedding last night.


By the way, Amanda is getting married.  I’m not invited.  It’s a small wedding and I’m a large person.  So, her dream was that Amanda got married in this baby blue dress with huge white polka-dots.  What?  We were laughing about it and Amanda said, “Sounds like something I would do” until Nancy pointed out that it was also “Victorian” which is when Amanda said, “No can do” to the polka-dot dress.


I was pointing out that it would be an awesome dress to wear if she had an “Alice in Wonderland” themed wedding.  We were visualizing that when I added that “wouldn’t it be fun to spike all the food with shrooms?” to complete the theme.


I was speculating that the guests would all have a great time.


Amanda          we should start a party planning business

Me:                  I totally agree

Amanda:         we could call it sub-par productions and party planning

Me:                  I love that idea

Amanda:         we could have all sorts of terrible events

Me:                  a friend of mine and I already came up with one great idea

Amanda:         what’s that?

Me:                  well her hubby and Kevin have the same birthday

Amanda:         and?

Me:                  and they’re both engineers

Amanda:         so?

Me:                  so we’re going to have an “engineering” party

Amanda:         what’s that like?

Me:                  everyone has to have a pocket protector and a slide rule and nerdy glasses and pants up to their armpits and then we’ll all stand around and talk, slowly and endlessly, about boring shit

Amanda:         that sounds perfect for sub-par productions

Me:                  wow… see Pilates is awesome.  Good for my body and now I have yet another new business

Amanda:         a new business that will never get off the ground

Me:                  yep.  That’s how all my businesses are.

Amanda:         do you have a lot?

Me:                  you have no idea

And you don’t because I have spectacular ideas all the time but they either involve me working or me thinking or me doing something which I very rarely do.  I need a doer in my life to do the things I think of.


I’m just saying …
