I’m Not Ready to Be Famous (But She Is)

Sometimes I’m my own worst enemy.  I know that I don’t have the ability to drink a lot and just shake it off the way I did when I was younger.  Alcohol doesn’t mix well with one of the medicines I take.  In fact, it says DO NOT TAKE WITH ALCOHOL right there on the bottle.

I interpret that to mean, ‘don’t drink too much’.  And sometimes that slips my mind, too.

Anyway, I’m still feeling last night’s good time and so I had to cancel my plans for the evening.  Which sucks.  Because I’ve been looking forward to tonight for ages.  I was supposed to take a pole dancing class with Michelle Joni.  That’s right, a pole dancing class.

It’s all part of the latest round of her NYC Game.  Each round of her game has seemed like more fun than the last (I’ve been playing along, a bit, but don’t really have the stamina to keep up with her).  This one is more than just fun, though.  This time, if she plays her cards right, she’s going to end up famous (in two weeks or less).

I wish her luck.  Personally, I have no desire to be famous.  Unless it’s as a bestselling novelist.  But otherwise, nah.

    I had a few drinks last night myself after almost 2 months; and have literally just gotten off my medication for my foot injury – got home at 3 a.m and its 8:35 a.m as I write this … my alarm refused to stop snoozing !!! I’m feeling the alcohol myself right about now :(

    Pole dancing is so much fun ! I attended a few classes with a girlfriend in London and it’s so exhilarating ! and great exercise too ! Make sure you definitely go when you get another chance

    And I’ll definitely be buying your novel whenever it is out – do you think you could send me an autograph right about now so I don’t have to push and shove around in a crowd when you finally do a book release in my part of the world ;)

    It will totally be a best seller :)

    Oh thanks darling. I think it’s a long while before any publishers/agents notice me. It’s a big wide interwebz out here and lots of bloggers screaming at the top of their lungs trying to get noticed. I’m just not that good at self-promotion.

    I’m just a writer:-)
