Could you be, could you be squeaky-clean?

I am a creature of not feeling much like doing any work today. But the tea is made (a hibiscus/ginger/bird pepper mixture of my own devising, good for what ails you and also tasty if you like spicy sour things, which I do), first lunch has been consumed (second lunch is around three o'clock, due to my very weird schedule, and I skipped breakfast today except for coffee and a handful of chips. Bad Bear.), the cats are waxed, and I really need to get my head down and get some words this afternoon. It just takes me a while to get my head screwed back into "writing" mode from "day job" mode--or, from nonfiction to fiction.

Espcially on a sleepy Friday, when the God of Naps is calling my name.

must... get... words.

Espcially on a sleepy Friday, when the God of Naps is calling my name.

You, too? I think the God of Naps must have me on speed dial. *Yawn!* Day jobs suck, but your daily progress reports inspire me. :-)
Me too! I slept 12 hours last night, and my head feels like it is packed with cotton wool. I need to write, but my writing-muscles feel all limp and useless.

I know exactly what you mean. Most nights by the time I've done all the things I have to do and wound down enough to start writing, I have about enough time to write a half a page before I have to go to bed and start all over again. *sigh*
*nod* I'm poking around editing stuff from earlier in the week, currently, shoring up the science and so forth and tidying things. Sometimes it helps get me back in the groove.
Oh. Oh, goodness. Can I steal that icon?
slithytove made it for me. I don't think he'd mind if I shared.
The cats. Are waxed. Care to expand on that statement for the less-informed?
Oh, sure.

"cat waxing" is a jargon term for all that stuff that one does while one is avoiding writing, especially if it's things that are technically kind of work-related, but not actually writing.
Phew. I thought you were being literal. Well, now I love the phrase and I am going to steal it immediately.
*g*

I think some of the older school writers call it "cat vacuuming" but that may be the less productive version.
