Abby... what the heck is "laugh it up, fuzzball" ???
And the submarine races... that's what they always used to say when I was growing up. It was great, too, because we lived by a Navy base, and what used to be the Naval Underwater Systems Center, i.e. the submarine base. So all growing up, I thought the submarine races were *real*!! LOL!!
Recently I've been getting nothing accomplished but writing and I guess we can all blame that on...well, writing.
So, whether it's just requests for work, my very first contract (which I just experienced), or good feedback from crit partners I treat myself to new book, Cold Stone Creamery, a frappe, or me and hubby go out to dinner and drinks.
Usually I just dive back into my writing.
When I was a little girl we used to park right where the planes would almost touch the top of the car landing at LAX, but I think it may have a new meaning. I actually vote for a two hour bath with added bubbles as needed followed by some time alone with the dh. But if there's no time....anything overwhelmingly chocolate will do.
