Alright! So, 5 confessions?!
1- I have not picked up a novel since I finished On The Road A MONTH AGO. I did just read through Matthew Dickman's new book of poems- Mayakovsky's Revolver a few times (read this book!)... but that's it. It's the *first* time I haven't been reading a story of some sort in over three years!
2- I am terrified of this year's NaNo-- the thought of trying to bang out 1600+ words a day is truly scary! Between being a mom and partner, planning a wedding, running Mama's Got A Big Belly!, launching Fit Friends, throwing Eva's 5th Birthday, a visit from my Mom AND Thanksgiving-- yep-- November is packed full! (But-- let's try to get the greater part of a novel finished- why not!? Ha.)
3. Since I stopped running advertisements on this blog, closed the Facebook page and in general just stopped having a rhyme or reason to any of my posts-- Google followers dropped from over 100 to 41! (Maybe I should add the Google Widget again?) But, since this blog is such a modge podge of randomness-- it doesn't bother me in the slightest!
4. I'm kind of obsessed with Ryan Gosling right now. Between The Ides of March and Drive-- the characters he plays are pretty freaking bad ass. Have you seen either of those movies? Fucking brilliant. Fucking brilliant!
5. I've been in love with Garrett since I was 19 years old. Daily, I have moments when I look at him and I get all ooey gooey, girly whirly, smooshy wooshy, lovey dovey feeling and I have to hug him-- and think to myself, "Is this really my life?"
