Sorts

I'm foggy today. I can't concentrate on anything for very long. My brain feels heavy. I spent 10 minutes trying to figure out how to turn a cardboard ring into a bangle bracelet. I am obviously not quite right. The endless round of stuffy, runny, sneezy, blowy nose crap is getting to me. I had to get up at 4:30 this morning to pee and stayed up until five taking allergy meds, drinking hot tea and blowing my nose but having nothing come out. All I want? To curl up in bed and sleep.

On a really, seriously good note though, I got two more film review assignments today. One tonight and one for Saturday morning. Thank God. I though I'd burned that bridge. Why? Well it's a long story that I'll make simple: I missed a screening. That's right, I had to tell my editor that I couldn't write one of the reviews he assigned me because I wasn't able to see the damn movie. What happened? It's my fault and the boy's fault and there was irritation and anger and disappointment and it's all three weeks over now. The point is that I don't have to have a talk with my editor asking if he's avoiding me because of the incident. I don't care if I only get to review the crap movies for a bit, I'm working my way back into his good graces.

how does one even get to review movies? i have thought this would be fun to do even if you didn't get paid. sounds good, except that half the movies made are really, really bad; i would probably have a hard time making recommendations. . .

Anonymous: I got really lucky with the reviews. I sent a cover letter and resume to the film editor at a local entertainment magazine and he decided to take me on. Most of my assignments have turned out to be pretty good movies, even if I wasn't looking forward to them beforehand.

Tracey: The worst was yesterday as I drove to work. I sneezed and a HUGE glob of snot dribbled down my lip and not my chin. Disgusting! And really hard to deal with while going 65mph on the highway.

Are you taking anything? Maybe it's hayfever?

I have no idea what it is but it's officially time for the doctor. As soon as I find one they'd better give me some damn drugs. The over-the-counter crap just ain't working.
