Butterflies

Muddling through the evening, as if some intrinsic diversion to the workload I have yet to begin, the off-putting climate coupled with a severely dreary ambiance lent little where motivation is concerned. A testament to the experience, I fled the domicile in the most comedic sense for a quick Starbucks IV-drip stimulant, attempted to advocate some mini-shopping pilgrimage, returned empty-handed, indulged a Jolie-fest with the film Wanted, and then called it a night after dealing with expedia.com for an unwarranted hour of frustration.
Kookookachoo.
Butterfly headband, DIY. Scarf, Missoni. Harem pants, H&M. Jacket, J. Crew. Heels, Promiscuous. Sparkle socks, DeLuxe. Bag, DKNY.

In other Bella world news, I promised the lovely Twiggy Mod this titillating little tagalicious questionnaire.

What were you doing ten years ago?Ten years ago, while earning a medical degree, I was daydreaming that one day I’d be a writer… mission accomplished.

What are 5 things on your to-do list today?Tricky, considering it’s already one of those moments when it’s not one thing it’s six others and the ‘accomplishment list’ is starting to resemble some freakish personal essay… but for the sake of this blog, let me narrow.

Send a thank you e-mail to my editor.
Hit the treadmill, seriously sometimes I really do want to bitchslap the thing.
Fervently attack my manuscript revisions.
Meet my weekly writer’s submission quota.
And by then, I’ll undoubtedly need to indulge (merrily) in some liquid courage.

Snacks you enjoy.Born with a self-exalted sweet tooth (not my fault), I definitely need to have my cake and eat it too.

Place you’ve lived.Besides my writer's imagination or the vicinity of my brimming wardrobe… the Midwest, point boringly blank.

Things you’d if you were a billionaire.
Quite honestly, I’d still be writing, despite the fact that it would suffice a location more acutely breathtaking… like Paris or perhaps Rome.

People you want to know more about.Everyone who takes a moment aside from his or her busy lives to read and comment on what I have to say, silly rants and all.
