i think that just in time for my weekend date i will have caught a cold. i am none too pleased with this development and plan on drinking about 38 gallons of orange juice to see if that doesn’t do something. i knew i was gonna get sick. i knew it. what with all the stress and not sleeping of last week, coupled with the armpit weather outside and the arctic tundra inside, well a girl is bound to get sick.

in other news, i finished my assignment. it blows so many goats that even my mind is boggled. why is it that everything i write sounds so totally cliche?

    take 1000mg of Vitamin C (without rose hips) every 2 hours. as long as your pee doesn’t turn orange, it’s going somewhere in your body and helping to boost your immune system to fight off the nasty cold germies. and eat something with a bunch of garlic in it too. but not right before the date. that would be gross.

    This may sound a little like a koan, but isn’t it funny, how nothing you write at iwilldare.com ever sounds “so totally cliche?”

    More of story: write for class by writing to your friends, or to your site. Write for yr best friend, or some such.

    Or write for Stephen King! We at the Zen Dojo heard he regularly visits your site!

    Yeah. You see where it says “more” up there? Yeah. It’s supposed to say “moral.”

    I have to go back to studying “Zen and the Art of Typing” now. Ohm!

    YOu are your own harshest critic; You may write on a cliche subject, but you have a way of drawing out the obscure side angle on it, often quite subtly.

    You are a great writer.

    Feeling that your writing is cliche blows so many goats. In great gobs.

    if you try too hard ot be clever, then it always seems to come out as cliche or boring. let the words come out, don’t force them. just write what comes to you…and if bra shopping is it…then immerse yourself in the experience. sit back and close your eyes and remember the tiniest details of the experience…the smell of the store, the feel of the fabrics, the sounds of other people, the A/C in the store, etc. then write what you see…

    Ginger tea works great to fend off the oogies. Grate a tablespoon or so of fresh ginger (or buy the stuff in the jar and use the same amount) and put it in a saucepan. Fill up a big mug of water and pour it into a pan. Put in a wee bit extra because you’re going to lose some liquid in the process. Bring everything to the boil. Boil hard for 3-5 minutes. Strain and add honey or sugar. If you can’t stand it hot, cool it down and ice it (dilute it with bubbly water if it’t too strong). It’ll cure what ails ya! And if your tummy is nervous, it’ll settle that too.
