I am banging my head this morning. Proverbially, of course. I would never do any damage to my precious, shiny laptop named Silver. I just don't feel like writing. I'm so fed up and frustrated!
But I did make a cool brownie cake for my son's birthday party today. I talked him into a cookie-sheet sized brownie instead of cupcakes. This is the third birthday party we've had for him in three consecutive weeks so I'm desperate for something different. Why so many parties? Well, the actual day of his birthday we had other commitments, so I just invited his aunt and cousin over for dinner but we still did cake, presents and such. Then we had another party last weekend with my family who were visiting from out of town, and this weekend is the children's party. I reserved a picnic shelter at the park because there are so many kids. Anyway, I decorated the brownie with white icing so that it looks like stars against the blackness of space and I added a Death Star and a little plastic Milennium Falcon. He just woke up and I showed it to him and he loved it!
I'm a cool mom. Really, I am. How many moms know the difference between an AT-ST, an AT-AT, and an AT-TE? Okay, I don't exactly know the difference between all of those but I know they are different and that the AT-TE is from The Clone Wars. It can climb cliff faces and the Lego version is about $80. And takes all of Christmas day to assemble. I definitely know the difference between R2-D2 and R4-D4. (R2-D2 is blue and flies with Anakin and Luke, R4-D4 is red and flies with Obi-Wan. Now you know.)
Yes, I am very much digressing.
I envy George Lucas his legacy and his brilliant marketing skills. One day, I hope to have a bunch of unknown actors become stars in the movie version of my book.
But first I must write it. And the truth is, I'm sick to death of it! I wish I'd never started! I think it's a hopeless jumble of once cool ideas that are now way past salvation!
There, I said it. You may banish me to Hoth if you like. I don't care. I've always wanted to ride a tauntaun anyway.
