I’m not quite manic but my brain is racing so I’m dumping some of those thoughts here.
1 – Thank you to whomever stared the tradition of Teaser Tuesdays. Sometimes getting a teaser written in the early morning hours is just the kick in the cants I need.
2 – I figured out a great way to use the LJ memories feature. Lots of the time I read blog posts on my phone and then want to remember to reply to them later. Now I can tag them for my memories on my phone and when I am home at my computer, pull them up again and write a response. (Maybe everyone else already does this but it was new to me.)
3 – The state refund check finally cleared the bank. Woohoo!
4 – One of the dumb things I worry about. If someone sends me an email and signs it “best regards” and I always sign my emails “best regards” does that person think I am copying them?
5 – Last night I couldn’t sleep so I wrote dedications in my head. Dedications to people I want to make sure I dedicate a book to. Dedications for books I haven’t finished writing yet and in one case, for a book I haven’t even conceived of yet.
Number four cracked me up! You and I, we always find something to worry/stress over!
There are more but I couldn’t bring myself to post them. 🙂 I’m really weird.
>>…is just the kick in the cants I need. <<
That might have been a typo, but either way, it works for me. Kick out the can’ts and let in the cans!
I use the phrase both ways, can’t and cants, depending on my mood. Today I was just lazy.
I’m always trying to come up with a different correspondence-closer than the one used by my correspondent. It’s a challenge. Of all the things to worry about! But I do.
It’s easier to worry about the small things like this sometimes. 🙂 At least for me. I do a lot of work for a Korean company and there is so much posturing with the greetings and the closings and whatnot.
“Best” and “best regards” seem to be pretty typical in this industry (don’t know about others).
All the best
All my best
Yep. I see “all the best” all the time. I also use
hugs (for a good friend)
with kind regards
At the day job it is just “regards”
I’ve been writing dedications in my head for as long as I can remember- but it never really sunk in until I read your post. Like, “well, I have to get this book published so I can dedicate this one to my kids, then another one to my parents and should they be together or seperate- by name? with step-parents?”
Just wanted to share.
