What I Did On My Summer Break

Really it was, like, two days. Not even two days. Three hours Tuesday night and three hours Wednesday night. A six-hour summer break.

And I spent the six hours caught between "Should I spend these two evenings crossing every last thing off my to do list, so I can finally sit down to write" and "Should I spend these two evenings ignoring everything on my to do list & just sit down to write already" and so not doing anything on my to do list and not writing. And also not doing nothing, which is what a break is really for. If you're not getting anything done, you at least want to be getting nothing done. And I didn't even get that.

Eh, it happens. I'm still learning the do nothing thing.

Well no, I wasn't so bad. Tuesday after dinner, me and my pit crew moseyed over to Pulaski Park to investigate the public pool (family swim is free 6:00 PM–7:15PM every day), then scooped up Joe for ice cream and sat on the Greenview stoop for longer than the ice cream lasted. Wednesday I got it into my head to roast potatoes and green beans on this ninety degree night, and had green salads with tuna and roasted potato salad on the Bosworth stoop & went in and wrote a very little bit lying upside down on the chaise. That's nothingish, for me.

So I didn't get all the rest of my t-shirts surgered into cute dresses, didn't get the rest of my calories calculated for past recipes, didn't get ahead on writing blog entries, and didn't send queries for my screenplay. I did research some agencies. I did get all my fabric shoved into the red dresser in the front room. I did get new glasses. I did get down to 124 pounds.

I think now get every last thing done on my to do list. Get new contact lenses. Get new wheels for skating at Orbit. For the love of god, get some summer clothes for work. I never want to go clothes shopping, everything else seems more important & meanwhile my clothes are turning into rags on my body.

Then I go to LA. I'm going to LA, by the way, in less than three weeks, to visit my dear friend Bonita who is having a baby and whom I am making a short film with.

When I get back, SIT DOWN TO WRITE.
