I was thinking of the moment in "A Muppets' Christmas Carol" where Rizzo the Rat gets attacked by a cat Muppet and he goes running around in circles shouting to Gonzo, "Help me! Save me! Help me! Save me!" That's because at the moment, I feel like doing the same.

Congratulations, I'm a working woman. That means I have no freaking time, ever! That means that I am going to get behind in NaNoWriMo very quickly. And that means that I cannot write thought provoking posts on my beloved blog where I generally put thought provoking, uh, thoughts. It also means I can pay off my college loans, and at the moment that's more important than any of this other crap. Well, no it's not, but it is more immediate.

I hope my readers do not abandon me in the month of November. Perhaps I should put some excerpts from my book up. Nahh, I'm a very private person when it comes to writing and I hate plagiarism. You can never be too careful with your own writing as my friend Foley has shown me through the sad misfortune of her dad's book being stolen by a potential publishing company that refused to publish the work up front and then published it later as their own idea. I do intend to try to find a reputable publisher for my book once I have edited it.

This is a great big ramble. And I'm sorry. I have to start a war in my book. So I have decided that I am going to take all the liberal ideas (which I totally disagree with, it was a massive beaurocratic miscommunication and I have heard that 500 tons of partially enriched uranium were found in Iraq last year) of how Bush lied and everything and have this government I created start a war based upon lies of a similar nature. Of course, my government is a bad government and it's very imperialistic. Anyways, so I am stalling at the moment because I am trying to decide how best to introduce my war into my book. I shouldn't be telling you all this, but since I didn't give many details you won't be able to steal my ideas. If you do steal my ideas, believe me, you will regret it. Mwahahaha.

Okay, this is Esther, tired and stalling. I am kind of an odd person really. Oh, like you could not figure that out. To T and A, I want to write a Pence post on those articles you sent, but it's kind of not happening very quickly. Maybe I'll do that on Sunday.

Just post a plethra of articles from other blogs, and newspapers. Pick a Dennis Prager article at, that's what I would do!

Esther said...

That would require that I read other articles. Since I don't have time for that it's not so much of a solution. Besides, I enjoy writing from the heart, my own words, not someone else's. And the heart must be informed, at the moment it does not have time to stay informed.

I wish all bloggers had that attitude!

Gonzo happens to have been my favorite Muppet. I have always related to him. Who's your favorite (I hope I'm not getting too personal!)

Esther said...

Actually, Gonzo has always been my favorite Muppet as well. He's just weird and different, very unique. I also like Rizzo the Rat a lot. And Kermit, who does not like Kermit? But Gonzo's my fav.

Put excerpts from your book up!
I don't want to have to abandon you

Yay, MUPPETS! They rock. :) Especially Rizzo and Gonzo.
