I hope this isn't too boring. Maybe you should grab a cup of coffee before reading on.
Okay, are you ready? For the non-Facebook users, status updates start with your name -- in this case Melanie Avila -- and then you type in whatever's on your mind. Here's what's been happening since Monday (in order)(and I didn't skip any -- you know, so it's all authentic and what not):
Melanie edit, edit, bo bedit, banana fana fo fedit, fe fi fo fedit. Edit!
Melanie hates when the internet dies.
Melanie is in cleaning and editing mode. Well, at least cleaning...
Melanie just discovered that the loud booms outside are pigeons sitting on the transformer. Apparently there are now headless pigeons beneath said transformer.
Melanie Woot! Demon baby picked me!!
Melanie Sweet. 80% humidity.
Melanie almost drank an ant. It was in my glass of water. I think it got confused and thought he was still wandering around, breathing air. (that's a humidity joke)
Melanie is going to try again at this shower thing. We ran out of water during my last attempt, but this time I have a bucketful courtesy of my neighbor.
Melanie has had enough of today. Good night.
Melanie the day is off to a good start -- we have running water again.
Melanie is no longer allowed to answer the phone in case it's an extortioner. They actually have warnings about this on the radio. *sigh*
Melanie How did I forget? *smacks head* I'm published!! http://www.flashquake.org/fiction/shipwreck.html
Melanie weather.com says it's 88 degrees here, but feels like 100. I'm a little worried about Saturday -- they're saying the temp will be 100.
Melanie is contemplating tasks for Paul Walker if she were to bring him to the island. Fan waver seems good, but I'm sure something better will come to mind.
Melanie *hops in the hammock* Let's Go Red Wings!!
Melanie eh, we're still up 2-1.
Melanie slept well. Thanks AC.
Melanie is melting inside.
Melanie is back to editing. I'm roughly halfway through line edits. Ugh.
Melanie note to self: LAMO does not mean the same thing as LMAO. Must stop typing LAMO in response to funny comments.
Melanie Messenger is off. Must. Edit.
Melanie Did you know that Mexican driver's licenses are only valid for two years? Yeah, neither did we. *computes how long we've lived here* Woops.
Melanie is glad the two-days of construction in the unit next to us has finally ended. Drill + concrete wall = VERY LOUD NOISE. Next up: hammering when the new neighbors move in.
Are you still awake? Hey!
As always, I'll respond to questions in the comments.
