|I am in my monkey hat|
because it is magic and bringing me luck.
And I am officially
In the weeds.
Hmm. Those *points right* are Kudzu weeds. We don't have them here in NY but I'm kinda fascinated by them.
If you want to see another kind of weed (no, no, stop it, I'm not like that, seriously), go here to Caroline by Line, and check out my writer-friend Caroline's tumbleweeds. Man, those things need googly eyes, fuzzy slippers and a leash! (Hey, no cheating! Stop reading right now, and click on that link and go and look at Caroline's tumbleweeds!)
But where was I? Oh yeah, how I am in the weeds.
For those of you who have never worked in the restaurant business waiting tables (oh lord, yes I did *shudders*), this means: In the Weeds: A colloquial expression used when persons are near or beyond their capacity to handle a situation or cannot catch up. Struggling. Very busy.
Yep. That would be me. Struggling. Very busy. Cannot catch up. Juggling too many balls:
Oooh, yay. I like this dude!
Er, yeah, and mixing too many metaphors. ;\
At any rate, no excerpt from me today. I'm leaving Friday Feedback up to you! Yep, you heard me, you're in charge. Whoever you are. Post an excerpt in your comment and I'll read it this weekend and give you some groovy feedback. Maybe some other people will happen along and also give you some feedback.
You know the rules (weeds or no, they're still the same):
Please post no more than 3 -5 paragraphs, 3 if they're longish, 5 if they're short. If there's more, I will only read the first 3 -5. If you are a student from a particular class, please identify yourself as such. If you're providing feedback: does the piece hook you? What works? What doesn't? (please be nice in your criticism. Criticism sucks, so it's nice to be nice).
Okay, peepos that's it. Peace out. See you in the comment box.
