I'm Writing Myself to Death. Luckily, there's help if I lose the will to live. But only if I can find my coupon.

The-Guy got me a (non-point & shoot) camera for my birthday!!!! I've always wanted one!!!!!! I just got it, so I don't know how to use it yet. All I have to show for it so far are 754 pictures of my cats' ears, plus this picture of The-Guy and my step-gal:The Succeed in Life Center continues to amuse me. Keep in mind that this is the same place where you need a coupon to see a pastor. Here's what it had up on its sign this past weekend:If I'm feeling suicidal, I'm thinking I don't want to have to search around for a coupon in order to get help. I mean, what if my coupon is expired?!?

I still have a few more honeymoon pictures. A Taco Shack in Austin: My understanding of the word "shack" is a bit shaky, apparently. They had these spices spices at a drug store type place:
It must be hard to decide between them.

Anyway, nose back to the grindstone. I figured out that in the last six months I've written at least 24 papers at 15-20 pages each. The end is in sight though. Maybe. If not, I'll have to find that coupon.

I wonder if they put you on hold or have someone on standby to sing a 'clap hands' song with you for support.

Karen said...

Those spices are too funny! I'd love to get some.
Hang in there, the end is near.

SJ said...

No sh1t!

Your pics are the least honeymoon-ey honeymoon pics I've seen.

Marlene said...

Oh, I could go for a good shit right now! Heehee!!!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

John C - Probably!

Thanks Karen - I hope so!!!

SJ- You think? I sort of wondered, but really I've seen very few of other people's honeymoon pictures in order to compare!

Marlene - I know just where you can buy some! ;-)

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Oh & SJ!!! I haven't even gotten to the bathroom graffiti honeymoon pictures yet!!!!!!!!!!!

SJ said...

Well most honeymoon pics are taken in exotic locales and might actually have the couple in them. Of course Austin and Houston are exotic locales to me.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

SJ - Well I did have that one picture of us at the beer factory!!!! It's not exotic, but it does have US in it. And a brewery!

Janet said...

Okay, I just spewed Diet Coke...

DJ Kirkby said...

Oh dear...well you keep writing, I'll keep making chutneys and jams instead of writing. Yes, I KNOW I'll regret it later!!!!!!!!!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Sorry Janet!

DJ Kirkby - Well you're on vacation. I don't think you're allowed to regret vacations, especially if they bring FOOD!

Using a toll free number for a suicide hot line is already a giant step in succeeding in life!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

People - that must account for their success! I'll bet the Failure in Life Center doesn't even have that!!!!!

A coupon to see the pastor? Drive by prayer? It must be moving east, because I heard a few years ago of a funeral home in CA where where they had drive by "viewings" (shudder).

Arizaphale said...

Drive By Viewings?????? Hahahahahaha ONLY in America!!!!! But back to Jill....
Liking those spices. Even the name of the company! And as for the Succeed in Life Centre....sigh....oh and what exactly are you writing??

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Q&Q - crazy, isn't it?!?! I sort of want to go in and take a look around just to see what it's like. But I don't know, it's almost creepy.

Arizaphale - I'm trying to get a Master's. Although until October 24th I won't actually be trying to hard, because I had to take a break. I like to write as much as the next guy but sheesh! I'm done for!!! Hopefully I'll be ready again in late October.
