Swinging Susan

Last night, very unusually, I was alone for the evening, since hubby and the kids were out of town. So how did I spend my evening as a bachelorette, you might wonder? Pick one:

a) Had a raucous night out with the girls.
b) Drank a bottle of wine and gave myself blond highlights.
c) Got a whole bunch of writing done.
d) Fiddled around with the DVD player connection, then got out my great big hole puncher and put some of my research materials into nice blue binders.

D. This is really pathetic, folks. Maybe someone needs to do an intervention.

I would have chosen the blonde highlights. My tips are in need of frosting.

Eerily that's just what I would have done too! Mind you, apart from when Els is with me, I lead a bachelorette life most nights - my current thing is scanning my books!

The footloose and fancy free single life is really not what it's cracked up to be is it? ;-)

Pathetic, possibly, but now you have nicely organized research materials. Win/win!

I would like to have seen the results of b though!

StevenT, it's never too late!

Lady D, I think you're right!

Carrie, good to see you here! And it it is nice to get more organized.

Daphne, I fear the result would have been . . . fearsome.

I can see myself sitting down to a lovely evening reformatting the column style for medieval-novels.com. That was a high point in my working life, the moment I realized that what I did for a living was what I did for fun.. nitpicky clerical stuff. Just now I can do it with medieval books!
