Help me help you

I've been toying around the idea of writing some kind of self-help book for a good long while, but Steve Harvey's climb to #1 this week has inspired me to really get serious and make tons of money quick.

So, what kind of self-help book should I write? I need something that would have mass appeal, lowest common denominator-type. Or maybe the self-help angle is all wrong; maybe I should focus on "other people-help" books, for those nosy Parkers who just have to tell other people what they ought to do (Religion maybe?)

I had something witty to write here...

but then I forgot I used it all up years ago.

Sunday was fun. I spent the first day of Daylight Savings getting free stuff around town and looking at homes with a sexy realtor. I think I mentioned him before once upon a time. While we were driving around, cracking jokes here and there, I found out we have quite a lot in common. We're both short (I knew that already), eco-friendly, and health conscious (he also drinks soy milk!). He seems far more active than me and in better shape that I could ever hope for. I know, I know, the simple fact that I'm in NorCal almost guarantees at least 75% of the people here will fall under these categories, but as he said, he was recycling back in the '70s before it was cool.

I smiled to myself, finding it uncanny how much we were alike. I've already admitted to myself that I have something of a daddy-complex, so he could either be on my hot list or a glimpse into my near-distant, utterly fabulous future (gay guys have to use that word, right?).

Oh, and for something completely random, I'm in love with T.I., particularly his lips. Smashing.


No posting for a month?

It must be because I'm cool and have a fabulous life. Or, it might be because I'm lazy. NaNoWriMo is officially over, and I barely wrote 24,000 words our of 50,000. In other words, I failed.

I read Dream Boy over the Thanksgiving holiday. It's a really a good book, and I highly recommend it. I nearly cried at the end; it actually left me feeling depressed for the rest of the day, but it was definitely worth it. I'm now starting on As Meat Loves Salt. It's historical fiction, and also seems promising, but it doesn't look like it has nearly enough sex. Great inspiration for my own story, though.

In other news...Collapse )
So, interweb denizens, do I go with Realtor A who I'd now call a friend because she's been so helpful, but works at a realty that 1) charges a bit more in commission and 2) has crazy realtor who mind find out I'm back and stalk me through my boss or something? Or do I go with the foine Realtor B who I'd get on my knees for would give me a discount through my work?

P.S.: I guess my dilemma is really self-inflicted. I'm over-zealous when it comes to loyalty, so maybe most Americans people wouldn't think twice about dropping the more expensive realtor, friendly or not. I need to stop being so thoughtful :/

Writer's Block: Revolutionary Thought

It's the anniversary of the Russian Revolution, marking the Marxist overthrow of the Russian government. Karl Marx once wrote that "religion is the opium of the people." What is the new opium of the people?

Consumer goods.

Yes, I'm a geek...

So what if it's a bittersweet victory? I'm still going to be happy about something!

My fellow party-people...

Don't forget to vote tomorrow. And vote correctly (which means for justice, freedom, and peace.)

*I just realized that in this context, it sounds like I'm talking about political party members, when in fact I mean "party like it's 1999" kind of party peoples, ya dig? So if you're square, don't bother voting!

November 1 tiem plz?

Holy crap, I'm doing NaNoWriMo! Waaaaaaaaahhhhhh!
