Robin’s Randoms: Dust Bunnies, Faith & Losing It

This week we’re talking about random randoms and that’s just fine with me.  I’m on school vacation and plowing through SNAPSHOT.  But every so often I have a random moment.  Here are the 5 most common:

1) Coffee, where’s my coffee? If my brain freezes or a bird flies by the window and I’m distracted I need a sip of coffee to get back on track.  If it’s gotten cold I have to warm it up, and if it’s gone, well, then I need to make fresh pot.  Or tea, if it’s after lunch.

2) My new skis… I just bought new skis, boots, helmet, goggles, and poles.  I haven’t had new equipment since Santa gave me new skis when I was 15.  I’m 49.  I don’t feel the least bit guilty for buying new equipment.  I feel giddy, like I’m 15 and I want to go skiing.  NOW.

3) Should I take a break and vacuum? No.  (That was a VERY random, and fleeting thought, but every time I go up to the bathroom I notice the dust bunnies on the stairs.)

4) Faith and Hope: These two characters from a possible book keep popping into my head when I’m writing Snapshot.  My only solution is to have Stickies open so I can jot down ideas when they start yakking in my head.

5) I love my iPod Touch:
I’m currently on my last diet again.  (That’s no secret since it was a New Year Random;-) I have a favorite app called Lose It and I am constantly playing with it and logging calories and exercise and canceling out the odd cracker I snuck.  As my sister says, “We’re finally applying real life math skills!”

    OMG, I sound like an idiot.

    No you don’t. You sound random. This is SO the blog for you.

    Now go enjoy those skis and your iPod Touch (the music, not that crazy-sounding program) and thinking about Faith and Hope…

    -S.

    I was feeling a little random so I decided to check in here–between pots of coffee… and logging cookies and crackers… and looking at the pretty blue sky.

    I have a lump in my throat. You are so sweet. Thanks.

    When I get new voices I usually have to write a chapter or a synopsis or even a blurb to get them to quiet down. It’s like they feel like they’ll stay real if I get at least a little something down and then they can quiet down.
