7 More Things About My So-Called Life.

Hello World!

How have you been?  Being good I trust?  Or if you haven't been good, you've been good at being bad?  Fantastico!

So this is just a quick 3a.m. blog just to let you know I do still exist.  Yes, I know I've been neglecting my blog lately.  Bad A, naughty A, etcetra, etcetra.  But I do have a bonefidy reason, a reason I quite can't believe myself...

I... yes, Me, the person typing this... I have actually been very, very busy.

I know!  I'm stunned too!

But I'm getting ahead of myself.  Here is a little update of 7 things which have occurred since I last wrote.

I am seriously considering getting a paint brush surgically attached to my hand.  This painting lark has gone completely bat s**t crazy, hence my rather long absence.  I've had buyers from as faraway as Queensland, Australia and Hollywood, California, and while I'm not making a massive amount of money, certainly not enough to live on, I've been able to have a bit of cash in my pocket that isn't just for food, bills and electricity. And it's a lovely feeling.  I don't think you've lived unless you've witnessed a grown woman getting over excited about a duvet cover.  It was a truly sight to behold.


It was my birthday at the weekend.  I am now officially in my late thirties, a thoroughly depressing notion that I am sure I'll shrug off in the next week or so.  For the time being, I'm just wallowing in the fact that I have cobwebs growing in my womb, and that I should probably start investing in a few dozen felines if I am to achieve the status of Crazy Cat Woman by the time I'm 50.  And that's all I have to say about that.

I have found something that is actually helping me sleep.  And before you ask, no, I didn't resort to sticking my head in the tumble dryer as I have so often threatened.

I brought myself a little jar of Avon's Sleeptherapy Balm, and it's wonderful.  You dab it on your wrists and temples (I also put a tiny bit under my nose for good measure), and hey presto!  Out like a light!

Well, no, that's not true.  But I'm definitely sleeping a lot better recently than I have done for quite a while.  And that fact that I didn't have to resort to violence has to be a good thing.

I'm returning to the stage next week.

(Good grief, that sounds a lot more glamorous than it actually is.)

After an absence from the Am. Dram scene of about 7 months, I begin rehearsals for our autumn variety show on Wednesday.  I'm really looking forward to it, especially as I saw some of my drama group friends at the weekend for the first time in ages and discovered they didn't hate me after all.  Which was nice.

(No idea what I'm talking about?  Then read this.)

I ate meatloaf for the first time yesterday.
The food, not the rock star.
It was very yum.

In follow up to my previous post entitled, "I Used To Believe in Forever..." proudly presents... The Worlds Shortest Blog", I should explain that this was partly based on my absence from this page, and partly based on a recent conversation I had with an acquaintance.
Picture the scene:  
You're walking down the street.  
It's a bright sunny day.  
The birds are singing.  
You see someone you know, not exactly a friend but far from a complete stranger.  
You say "Hello".  
They look at you, their face a picture of confusion, then shock,  then pleasantly surprised.  
They say, "Hello!  How are you?  It's so nice to see you!  Someone told me you were dead..."

Strangest.  Conversation.  Ever.

I really, really, really miss writing to you guys, and I'm so glad you carried on following me on the off chance I'd make a reappearance.  Those of you who have been with me for a long time will know just how therapeutic my Little Black Rain Cloud finds blogging, and on more than one occasion you've made me feel so - what's the word? - so un-alone, that I've just wanted to reach through the computer screen like that creepy girl in "The Ring" and give you a great big sloppy kiss (no tongues) just to say thank you for caring.  So please bare with me while I ride this tide of busyness.  I promise (I hope) normal service will resume one of these days.

"Gimme a kiss..!"
But in the meantime, the birds have started to sing.  Time for me to go to bed.  With my new duvet cover.
