Notes from the Moleskine.

OK, so the reason for all the blog posts is because I'm transcribing notes I've written in a journal or on a legal pad. I'm doing this because it feels productive.

- 4/25 Customer described a CD as "too Starbuck-ish."

- 4/9 from Dear Abby:

"The greatest gift people can give one another is the gift of their time, their affection and their interest. No tangible item compares to the gift of love."

- Notes/outline from project:

Random attempt at a beginning -

I'd made a mistake. That part became clear when I woke up alone. Next to the office copier. In a bridesmaid's dress. On a Sunday.

My shoes were in Brad's cubicle, the place where we'd found ourselves "carried away" the night before.

I've had too many mornings like this.


Random lines to potentially use:

"You can have him back in a minute to do whatever you want with him. But he and I have been sleeping together for months, so right now I outrank you."

"You smell like fabric softener."



1) Wake up on the Non's floor. Alone.
2) Break up with the Non because what's the damn point anyway ...
3) Meet up with friends.
4) Explain everything to them.
5) Get a new look.
6) Get another new look.
7) Think about doing an overwhelmingly "chick" thing and go shopping for new shoes.
8) Read "chick" lit to show you that making such ridiculous mistakes in your personal life aren't just sad and pathetic, they're the gateway to both inspired comedy and soul-searching.
9) Help your pregnant friend get an ultrasound because her own man is a jackass, too...
10) Do something to get your mind off yourself.
11) Realize "I am a puppet of God, subject to His whim and His sick sense of humor."
12) Quit your job.
13) While at the job, quit the Non again because he works there.
14) Dance with yourself.
15) Be OK without a man.
16) Be more than OK.
17) Learn for yourself that there's a difference between "want" and "need."
18) Embrace positivity and positive thinking without resorting to that book, THE SECRET.
19) Say yes.
20) Learn that you'll survive making mistakes.
21) Learn that you'll survive making a LOT of mistakes.
22) Learn from your mistakes.
23) Accept and learn that you may never learn enough.

Anyway, that's what my notebook had in it.
