Days I have been NaBloPoMo- ing: 5
# of times I had to say to myself "Post something already!!!" today: a lot more than five
However, that's directly related to the number of MINUTES I slept last night: a lot less than five.
(Ahh, the irony of CFIDS-insomnia. Except irony is a stupid, stupid concept, people. S-T-U-P-I-D. Also, the wit of CFIDS-insomnia: Y'all are soo lucky to hear from me today, what with these high-quality witty remarks.)
Lucky you, I've prepared for just such an occasion --- I'm not new to this: the number of times I had to write (& then rewrite) a term paper at the beginning, (middle and end) of the semester, just in case of brain fog/hospitalization/any damn thing are too numerous to count --- So, I saved up some meme's to fill in.
Today's meme is short & sweet and I got it from Sadico Junction. I'm doing the answering today, though, even if I've been saving up the questions. So, I am, technically writing it today. I just figure there's less of a chance of me making no sense if I stick to specific things.
Here we go:
What is your favorite romantic movie?
This is hard: picking just one. I am not good at that. (Why did I think this would be easier, again?) Here's what I'll do for you, I'll keep it to two. My favorite oldie: An Affair to Remember and my favorite modern one: Love Actually. Love Actually was not a huge hit here, as it should have been, but it seems to be coming into it's own now: I often see it on people's favorite lists. As well it should be. It's a weird mishmash of stories, but they're all good. It's frickin funny, very sweet, and so different from most other movies. The other, An Affair to Remember gets all the credit it deserves (remember those scenes from Sleepless in Seattle?), but for me, it's all about Cary Grant. As the saying goes, I would listen to him read from the phonebook.
What are you currently looking forward to?
Wow, it's kind of sad that I couldn't readily think of anything. But I'm pretending that's the Fog. Today starts the crazy months for my family: Everybody but me, my niece and my nephews was born in the period from the first week of November to the first week of February. It goes like this Youngest Sister (18);Oldest Sister (30); Soon-to-be Sister-in-law (37); Only Brother (30); Mum (46); SisterM (21); Dad (58); SisterJ (24). Not to mention Thanksgiving & Christmas & all that hullabaloo. So, there's a lot to look forward too, a lot to budget time and energy for. Today, I'm most looking forward to seeing Youngest Sister open her birthday present: A scrapbook that I've been doing for months.
What are you scared of?
We've talked about this a bit before, but I'm scared of losing the people I love. I've lost some already, and the blows were hard to prevail against.
I'm also scared of not getting better, of being like this (or worse, dear God, the worse) forever.
What brings you joy?
My babies - Niece & Nephews. My crazy family. Books, books and more books. Wrapping presents. (Finishing presents!) Melted cheese & white chocolate (separately, my friends, separately).
And not breaking my 5-in-a-row-so-far streak! Especaillly since I'd rather have taken a nap. Oh... a nap. There's some joy right there!
