So when I sign up for something, I pretty much always follow through, but I AM inclined to tweak things so I am participating in the SPIRIT of it, if not exactly according to the rules. Today is the day I 'tweak' because I have two things that I am signed up for in April that are in a sort of conflict.
Deliberation of A to Z
The invitation said 'every day but Sunday'. That would get us through the alphabet in the month of April. Yet here I am blogging on Sunday (silly Tart. Why would you do that?)
It means I will be off on letters compared to everyone else from here on out, but hey... I'm a little off in other ways, too. It's sort of how I roll.
DON'T: Display Damsels in Distress. As a book theme, this is one I've got SUCH ISSUES with. I don't like women that need saving—at least not unless they eventually find the strength within themselves... I NEVER want a MAN to save them... bugs the heck out of me. I also don't like heroines who are delicate, dumb or domestic.
DON'T dictate or demean. I can make up my own mind, thanks. Just tell the damn story. And frequently I prefer an anti-hero to decency... in fact inner demons dealt with make dreamy drama!
DO: Dress your Death Eaters (and any other amusing miscreant) in Drag. Lingerie training is underused as a method of putting someone where you want him, and as a personal quirk, I enjoy it greatly.
I am headed to Clash of the Titans with Thing 2 shortly. I don't go to many movies, but I always enjoy them... And Thing 2 is one of my favorite people. Thing 1 gets home from Chicago late tonight and the Big Giant Thing is grounded.
That's Naked Sunday, Gringo. And it is about time we lobbied for it. Sunday has been a hold out for way too long. And for it, we have a delightful derriere.
So there you have it.
