Like pulling teeth!

Okay, I don?t know if this is just me, or if other people who write experience this as well, but sometimes getting the words to come out is like pulling teeth! It?s excruciating because they just don?t want to come out. Actually there is a better analogy, but it?s a bit more vulgar, so I opted for this one. I have the story! I want to tell the story... it?s just that actually finding the words to tell the story seems like filling up a ten-gallon tank using an eye-dropper! Words just seem so inefficient at times. It would be much easier if I could just psychically beam the entire story into your heads. Sigh maybe I?m just being lazy, but it just seems so hard to sit down and get words onto a page sometimes. Maybe it?s just because I?m tired. If you take a look at a day, it can basically be divided into three 8 hour chunks, one of which is taken up by sleep. Then on at least five out of seven days of the week, the second chunk and sometimes most of the third chunk is taken up by work. Then there?s stuff like eating, bathing, cleaning, and doing other tasks that are required to maintain living. After that, one is lucky to have an hour or so a day to spare... and I?m already pretty exhausted when I finish everything I need to do that I don?t feel like thinking anymore (so I end up doing something fairly mindless like escaping to Vana D?iel).

That's it. I just need to get a writing gig that pays as well as my day job. If anyone wants to make me an offer... wink wink nudge nudge. Who am I kidding... All I have to say is ?thank god for weekends.?


Hello, I am back. Woo. Hopefully this page will be on time, but I'm writing this rant before I finished, so I don't know if it will be (ehhhh....).

So, after months of staring at it, I finally picked up this copy of Queen's Greatest Hits compilation at Circuit City. It was pretty cheap too. I think there may have been a pricing error but who am I to complain. I've been listening to it all week. I love Queen. I have to admit, I'm one of those people that became a Queen fan after Wayne's World's bizzare tribute to Bohemian Rhapsody. One song which I didn't really appreciate before but have come to particulary like since I started listening to it again is "Seven Seas of Rhye". It just sounds like it would be a good song to sing if you're drunk at bar with a bunch of friends. It has got me to wondering though...what exactly is rhye? I know what rye is, but I don't think it's the same thing. Maybe rhye is just the British version of rye? Is there ever such a thing? Maybe Freddy made it up. Maybe he's just taunting me from beyond the grave?

Also this week, I got my issue of Anime Insider. I read it regularly, since those guys amuse me. In this issue in the letters section, they had a image of the cover for Warriors of the Wind (ala Naussica edited very badly). Now, I had heard about this butchered version of the anime before but I'd never seen anything of it. Now that I've seen the cover, I can only say that it has to be seen to be believed. It's the one of the most hilarious things I've ever seen, and when the caption says that this cover contains 3000% more lies than any other, they aren't exaggerating. Ah, those were the days.
