Blogging Friends....Yesterday was seemingly a long day!! And not for any negative reasons!! First, we attended church. Next, I gave Rose some much-needed quality time. And, finally, we watched the Oscars!! I have never seen such an event, but Robert Downey Jr. was scheduled to "assemble" alongside fellow Avengers!! Unfortunately, Attention Deficit Disorder took over my mind during their brief appearance!! Boo!! Well, there is always YouTube!! Nothing like enjoying somebody's technically illegal video of an awards show event!! And I get to keep my conscience clear!! We also watched the pre-show. Which, I enjoyed!! And, by the way? For those who watched it, that covered box which contained "cinema history"? The one hosts had actors and actresses guess about? I called it. Beneath that sheet were Dorothy's Ruby Red Slippers!! What do I win for getting it right? Hmmm.... 20 billion dollars? Then, around 11:30 PM, my creative "brain juices" began to flow--steadily, like some raging river--regarding that "secretive writing project" which I was working on over the holidays. Do you remember it? I have not forgotten. Which is quite surprising, because after setting a project aside, I usually never return to it!! I always forget. Well, as Rose snoozed away in our bedroom, my brain juices continued to flow--I was also a bit high on chocolate!!--until around 2:15 AM!! Which is insane, I know!! But, I felt wired somehow. As though I could accomplish anything!! Is this what true insanity feels like? My brain juices kept flowing, fingers kept typing, the clock kept ticking!! And it was actually thrilling in a hyperactive-teenage-girl-sleepover sort of way!! Minus giggling, nail polish, plus chick flicks, that is!! It was just me, the computer, and my brain juices!! Should anybody--namely Mom--notice that I was still very much wide awake, then I had a retort, which, we can only hope, would have sounded patient!! My brain juices are flowing right now. I can't sleep!! Besides, I'm not tired, anyway!! I was feeling like a rebel. Which I am!! Not that I, at age 29, cannot stay up way past midnight!! But still. Well, Mom never noticed!! Sweet!! I want to do it again sometime!! I feel hooked!! Okay, perhaps that was the chocolate speaking!! My brain juices for this project are flowing again. So. For now, I'll take a brief break from sharing stories about Rose. So that I can spend quality time with her, catch up on Blogs, and just write!! Now. I am not taking a break from posting on Beautifully Unique, lest anybody wonder!! Just stories. For now. During last night's Oscar's, they played an automated quote by Nora Ephron. I liked her!! In fact, my favorite of her films is easily "You've Got Mail". Plus, I love Tom Hanks!! This quote was about writing. I could wholeheartedly relate to her words. And I love it!! Enjoy!!
