Girls can be elves, too

Monday, November 21, 2005

So you see. In pink, naturally :). I have had enough of HTML (Horrid, Terrible, Mind-numbing computer Language) (yes, I thought that up all by myself). I am bored of changing the template already. I love the template designs that are out there (Thank you Chloe) but just couldn't figure it all out without spending an inordinate amount of time and frustration. So I am settling for what I have, which I am, still not satisfied with.

Did your brain break asks my soulful beautiful child, when he hears me crying. Thinks that the tears coming out of my eyes are pouring from the inside of my head. My love, my life. I love you beyond words of this world.

Tomorrow I am meeting with the publisher of my textbook. The year before maternity leave, I wrote a textbook on a topic that I completely avoid here. Because that is the world of my work and this is not. We will be talking about royalties (hmmm) and the potential for another book (double hmmm). I have to take the babe with me because, well, that's another story, but the publishers know and they are both women with babes of their own, so I've been assured it is fine (and he's a very quiet babe, as babes go).

After the meeting I am finally going to the hairdresser; my favourite place to go. This hairdresser is featured on Much Music (Canada's version of MTV, right Heidi!) this week, so I trust their prices are about to go up exponentially. Crap.

And then there is the upcoming trip. I leave on Wednesday for British Columbia. It will take me
10 hours of flight time to get there. From one side of the great white north ot the other; seriously, this country is just too big. Plain and simple. I will be back on Sunday...work related trip, my wonderful amazing husband is taking the time off to be with both boys. I am lucky beyond belief. That doesn't mean there aren't things that can still make my brain break, though.

Peace and love to you bloggers.

    Mmmmm...royalties! Tasty! Have a good meeting, enjoy the luxury of getting your hair done and get some sleep on that flight!

    ps: I've been meaning to mention: That's the best hat ever.

    MissB;
    The royalties will be sweet or sour; there will not be anything in-between I'm afraid. I actually worry that I will owe them, because they had given me an advance to hire a research assistant
    ...oh and I will most certainly enjoy. My hairdresser is wonderful and has the gift of gab, which I love. I am looking forward to reading and sleeping and reading and sleeping. Please, if there is a God, do not let a fat smelly obnoxious talkative man sit next to me...
    Yes, the hat is too cute, but I'm jealous of her waistline (but you need't be, miss size 6?:)

    Wow you are an author... a long time ago people used to ask me what I did and I'd say I'm a writer but I haven't had anything published yet. If they ased me what I wrote I'd say cheques.

  1. Blogger Jase said:

    Oh by the way that new photo is fantastic, can we have a larger version on the next post?

  1. Blogger Michelle said:

    Ahhh to be published...well done!
    Have a safe journey, successful meeting and a wonderful time at the hairdressers (also my fav place) :)
    Love the new template colors!

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    you are an author!!! and you never said anything! I hope it all goes well and that you'll earn loadsa money.
    Cathy couldn't you post a picture of the new hairstyle?
    Also, I like the blonde elf. I think she has excellent fashion sense.
    The new layout of your blog is nice and clean and i like the raging sea.
    Have a safe trip. You are lucky to have Mr C it seems.
    It's a great day for you! Get some glue brain for emergencies. xx

    Jase;
    Which photo might that me; the sea, the elf or me?:)

    Michelle;
    Thank you threefold:)

    Chloe;
    I really don't consider myself an author, even though, yes, I am published, but in an academic sense, and the writing is a result of the academic work I do, so it stems from something else rather than being an entity of its own; hmmm does this really make any sense at all?
    Regardless, I won't make loads of money because it is a Canadian textbook, sold only to undergraduate Canadian university students taking a particular course....

    Hmm...I'll post a photo if the hairdressers goes well!

    I will hopefully have a quick post tonight before I will be away for the remainder of the week. You all have been my brain glue lately....so please stick around!

    Have a great day.

    I love the Rudolph characters, and also the idea of having them appear one at a time around the house. Your boy is wise beyone his years.

    Have a safe trip. 10 hours on a plane!!! :( Looking forward to hearing all about it when you get back.

  1. Blogger Heidi said:
