Almost Lover

I thought I’d do something a little different– black and white pictures. Or almost black and white. I never do colorless things (you know me and bright colors) but my outfit is all black, brown, and cream today so it doesn’t detract much to make it grayscale. Right?

I’ve had Almost Lover stuck in my head all day. It has become a sort of inspiration/theme song for that vampire novel I’m trying to finish this month, and I can’t stop singing it. It’s one of the most beautiful songs ever.

And my boss was mocking me when I was humming it at work. Which made it slightly less beautiful. Darn him.

So I had one of the creepiest customers ever today. He would not take his eyes off of me. And not in a “he keeps glancing at me/pretending to be cool but really infatuated” kind of way, no. He stared, lingered, kept direct eye contact, and did not blink. And tried to make conversation about the weather. And craned his neck to watch me as he drove away.

He was even creepier than the married man that lingered and winked at me yesterday.

*sigh* At least there are nice, decent men to combat the weird ones. And outnumber them.

 I really don’t have much to say today. My mind is on other things. Like writing.

Speaking of which, I have decided to make my writing website public, partly because I’m tired of responding to password request emails (I have some from two months ago that I’ve yet to reply to, which is terrible of me) but also because… making my writing private, even with the 200+ people I’ve given passwords to, has taken something away from my joy of writing. One of the biggest parts of my writing is sharing it with others and sort of… spreading my love for writing to others.

I’ve never written to please others, but I just… love sharing with people, and making it some sort of exclusive club has detracted something from my joy.

I haven’t completed changes yet, but when it’s totally public and ready later today, I’ll do a post here and let you know.

So if you’ve ever been curious about my writing and too shy to ask, you can check it out. 😉

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanksgiving is next week, can you believe it?

    This song is now stuck in my mind, thank you very much! I hadn’t heard it before actually, and it’s an awesome song. Anyway, these pics are so pretty! I love the change, black-white-brown 😛 You look really good! Uhm…that was a creepy guy. I think I’d started laughing lol! Some people are soooo weird!
    I think it’s a good think you made your writing site public. I just believe it’s a shame for other people to not read your stories. Because you deserve it! Have you ever worked in a newspaper or something….journalistic? 😛

    I love that outfit, especially the idea of wearing a dress as a skirt!
    Ahh creepy customers, you gotta love ’em! I once had a guy ask me if I was going to pinch his butt if he turned his back to me. lol.

    Interestingly enough, I had thought he was attractive up until that moment. It dissipated quickly after he made that comment…: P
