I *love* being rewarded for the work I do. Especially if it's hard work. The day job (which many days I absolutely loathe) is hard work. It consumes my schedule and leaves me tiny *tiny* tidbits of writing time early in the morning and late at night.

(What it actually does is steal my time, f*** with my creative process, and leave me cranky.)

That said, I get to pick an anniversary gift for my years of service, which is all kinds of happy-making.

I'm scrolling through the options, and . . . do I go with practical? Because I really need the luggage. Or totally impractical with the brand name? (Coach, anyone?) Or the Vera Bradley set because so many people seem to have these bags and I'm like, totally not part of this club?

I will stress about this for a few days, I'm sure. Then I'll probably go with the practical. 

Even so, it's nice to be recognized. Because yeah, I'm easy like that. :)

Song Obsession

I'm kind of obsessed with this song/music video right now. 

Love the sound. Love the storytelling. Lifts my heart. Makes it hurt. . . . 
All the feels. 

In other words: right up my alley.

Oscars Wrap-Up

Yes, I watched as much as I could. Here are my post-Oscars thoughts (in no particular order):


2. I want all the boys in their tuxedos--because there was a lot of FINE happening last night.

3. Ellen DeGeneres is hilarious.

4. Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx? Um, not so much.

5. Still love Jennifer Lawrence.

6. Didn't see a *single* nominated film, but all of the winners seemed deserving.

7. Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey? Um, yes and yes.

8. Was excited to see Idina Menzel perform "Let it Go," though something seemed a bit "off" to me--too fast, maybe?

9. Still, nothing compared to John Travolta's performance . . . of her name. WTF?

10. Pink's "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" was my favorite.

11. Bette Midler and "Wind Beneath My Wings"? Not so much.

12. Missed U2's performance, but happy to spot them on the red carpet and in the crowd. 

13. I love Anne Hathaway as an actress, but she gives off a vibe at events like this. She's always "on." Someone tell her to relax, please.

14. Loved what Robert DeNiro had to say about writers:

15. And finally . . . the boys. Yes, again. Because that room was full of the smexy.
