I feel like crap

Great subject line, huh? LOL Seriously, this is the third night in a row that I haven't gotten any sleep. I think I've got food poisoning. Having had it before, I recognize the symptoms. It isn't severe enough to go to the hospital. It's just enough to piss me off and keep me from resting or getting much work done.

My biggest problems are stomach ache and nausea. That's not so bad. But after three days, it's Hell. The good news is that I've had time to come up with some interesting plot twists for my new story. Might as well since I couldn't sleep. The bad news is I've felt too crappy to write them into the book.

I've got bits and pieces on post-it notes, so they'll eventually make it there. So far I think that Wicked City is the best book I've ever written. I know, I know, I said that about the last three books I've written. But technically ... aren't I supposed to get better at this as I go?

I'm really getting into these characters. I wrote a scene a few nights ago that was just so intense. I immediately had to call my friend and read it to her. LOL I was thrilled when she agreed with me:) Trust me when I say that it wasn't to save my feelings. She's told me plenty of times when something was stupid and this was truly a great scene. There was just such ... emotion in so few words ... a lifetime of longing in just a touch. *sigh* It was beautiful. I'm very proud of myself:)

I don't mean that in an "I'm so awesome" sort of way. It's more like a "Holy crap you mean I wrote that?" sort of thing. LOL Know what I mean?

So, since I feel too bad to work on my book and it's after three o'clock in the morning, I'm reading stupid news headlines. I think that most news can fall into that category. Not that there aren't lots of important issues out there. They just aren't usually considered "news worthy," which is sad.

I just read something about an athlete who tested positive for using enhancement drugs. (No, not that kind you pervert.) Now the article headline said, "So-and-so has a problem with Roids." LOL My first thought was, "Why the hell is this guy's hemorrhoid problem major news?" hahahahaha Maybe it's because I'm such a prankster, but when someone says "Roids" I think hemorrhoids. *snicker* (Yes, I know they meant steroids. I'm not retarded, just sick and sleep depraved, um, I mean deprived.)

I've been up for a while so I also took an I.Q. test. I have taken many over the years, from standardized paper and pencil tests to online stuff just for fun. The highest I've ever scored is 162, the lowest (which didn't have as high a scale) was 134. On average I score 154. The test I took tonight told me that most people who got a similar score to mine were criminally insane. Yeah, just when I was starting to feel good about myself someone had to go and point out that I'm most likely crazy. Humph. Stupid test.

I think I'm gonna try to sleep again. I'm suddenly feeling less nauseous:) You've been a great audience. *takes a bow* Please remember to tip your waitress. (That doesn't mean tell her not to eat yellow snow.) Did I ever mention that I tell really bad jokes when I don't get enough sleep?LOL

Sorry you are not feeling well. Hopefully in a day or two all will be mended and new words down on paper.

Thanks, Lindseye:) I'm hoping so too. I'm going to attempt to write a little in a few minutes, that is if my stomach cooperates....

I know how you feel, I feel like crap too. We've all had the flu and I still have this lingering congestion and sore throat that keeps me from getting a good night's sleep. A few more days of this and I'll know what it's like to be a zombie. LOL

LOL Yep, I'd say that about covers it. I'm already starting to sort of shamble around the house.

But the good news is I'm feeling better and in the past two weeks I've written 95 pages on my new story:) Weeee! Go Zombies!! LOL
