    My Beta is on vacation.


    Opps! The computer got ichagibubed. :(


    I'm too worried about what RedGold is going to do in her story, so distracted, that I can't think to write!


    Don't bother me-- I'm memorizing Kissa's happy fics(read and reread), and must draw fanart, write my own fic-- are you mental?





    I read one of DarthIshtar's 'kill the character I love' stories after happy fluffy when there should be fluff and I'm just soo depressed that I don't know if I can stand to read/write anything again!:_|

    my shift key is broke

    The paper clip in MS Word keeps distracting me.

    I lost my thesaurus.

    I've been to Lit.

    I've read too much angst and am out of my anti-depressants.

    A witch has turned me into a newt.*

    Sorry, can't type now. In labor.

    It can be so hard to get a decent baud rate going here in 1939.

    I can't see through this creature hugging my face.

    Warner's has optioned the rights to it so they can make it the next Die Hard film.

    Star Wars is part of a communist plot to rob us of our vital fluids.

    Why did no one point out to me until last night that my fic was almost word-for-word identical to Gigli?

    I've been going through some changes since that radioactive spider bit me.




    *I'll get better.

    [face_laugh] Some days are like that.

    Um... I have really bad times focusing... anyone seen that spongebob about procrastinating? That's me in a nutshell...

    I stay up late writing and then can't foucus when posting the next day...

    Wow... that last one really applies! (note my lack of ideas)

    ROFLMAO He is rather annoying, isn't he.





    I need to finish the NJO books, and DN, and the Legacy ones, so I will know what everybody is talking about, before I can update my fic. [face_whistling]

    I forgot to pack my plot bunnies when I moved.

    I got in a fight with MS Word (Stupid auto formatting) and now it won't let me back in.

    I'll update after my brother drives me down to the craft store to get some supplies to make Star Destroyer models for planning the big battle movements.

    He's twelve.

    I've been too busy waiting for the darn ASU tech help to come to my dorm room and fix my broken internet connection. Until such a time, and until such a time as the ASU Computer Store recieves Microsoft Office for my Mac, and until such time as I can muster any energy to write, all updates on my fics are halted. :mad:

    ASU = sucky.

    I've decided to concentrate on the stories I'm writing under my other sock, VaderLVR64.

    I said I needed some alone time to write, but Dick and Rummy wouldn't leave.

    My plan to clone Groucho Marx is taking up all my time.

    It's been hard since that baboon ate my face.

    Apparently Al never told Sam he was supposed to work on the story while he was me.

    I've been busy over at the TFNMMORPG, where I play a tenth-level fanfic writer.

    I'm practicing typing by ear.

    I've been packing for my flight to L.A., but don't worry because as soon as Oceanic Flight 815 hits the States, I'll be getting right back to work on it.

    I can only inflict suffering a little bit at a time.

    I am not sufficiently drunk enough to create a work of art.

    I just came back from a Roman orgy. Do you think I have any energy left over to write anything?!!

    I've been in the Land of the Dead being judged by Osiris.

    I'm waiting for the 4-foot pink rabbit in the corner to quit staring at me...creepin' me the hell out.

    My next chapter is a missing scene from the Holiday Special, and I'm waiting for the DVD so I can get the details right.

    I burned my fingers while curling my hair.

    I need help, but the A-Team's on another mission right now.

    Can't Post-- Question Marks will get it! (and torture my poor fic!!)


    Can't Post- I'm dueling with my co-author right now. (and I have pictures of the lightsaber fight to prove it)

    One of my muses ran off and had an illegitimate child with Kevin Federline.

    My other muse was arrested for insider trading.

    I just got back from being thrown into a (dormant) volcano.

    I can't attend to my updates right now, I have to help these two droids. I think they're searching for their former master, but I've never seen such devotion in a droid before...

    I let my doctor read Ghost Story and she put me on Zoloft, I haven't felt angsty enough to write anything decent since.


    The new Harry Potter book just came out.


    I'm really lazy.


    I'm getting too much sleep, I can only write decently when I'm half conscious.


    My parents are going to put me in counseling if I don't start spending a little bit more time in the real world.


    My supervisor took away my privacy screen.


    two 15 year old sisters + mySpace = no computer time for me = no update for you


    I have 5 seasons of Smallville to catch up on, it'll be awhile.


    Patience is a virtue, you'll thank me one day.

    I still haven't recovered from the time change... when we adopted the Gregorian calendar.

    I'll get back to writing as soon as Aunt Jessica can prove I'm not the murderer.

    Do you know how long it takes to type when you have tiny arms, just two fingers on each hand, and a brain the size of a walnut?

    I was blinded in a freak accident involving a goat, ketchup packets, and a traffic light.

    No, I posted, but this chapter was my John Cage tribute.

    She'd been one of the good mods once; everybody respected her. But then she retreated deeper and deeper into fanfic, and nobody heard from her. All that came out were rumors that she'd carved out her own little fiefdom somewhere in the heart of that darkness. Six people'd already been sent after her, but none ever came back. Now it was my turn to venture into fanfic to pull the plug on whatever Leona had going there. Didn't know if I was up to it; even after the fact, I still don't, probably never will.

    I can't finish this fanfic. Don't get me wrong, it can be done. It will just take seven million years and a computer far larger and smarter than I. Fortunately, I can tell you how to build that computer. [And that is Excuse 42 for me.]
