I’m just coming off of my deadline-binge-o-manic writing today and let me say that pulling all-nighters is a thing for the younguns! LOL! To them, it’s fun to be so wired on caffeine that it takes three days to get to sleep… To me, closer to the midpoint between 55 and 60, it’s just not pretty. In addition to looking like something the cat dragged in, I FEEL like something the cat dragged in. It can take weeks to recover from these binges, leaving me with a need to recuperate and refill the well.
So, tomorrow evening (after I get some quality sleep and have my hair colored to repair the awful, terrible results of deadline binge writing), hubby and I are seeking out a bit of nostalgia for some R&R — we’re going to a Beatles sing-along show at a local British fish and chip shop! Doesn’t that sound like fun? We have gone to see RAIN, a Beatles tribute show, and watched the ‘British Invasion’ rock group at Epcot countless times, singing songs from the 60s and on. It should be fun and one of those things you can do without really thinking about it.
This is the first of several nostalgia events I’ll be going to this fall — including a MONKEES reunion (alas, now without my shoulda-been husband Davy Jones) and my ever-fav Rick Springfield. And it got me to thinking — if you could have, should have, would have, seen a group or personality when you/they/we all were younger — who would it be? My two are already listed in this post — The Monkees WITH DAVY and The Beatles.
You? Who do you wish you’d seen in concert? Who have you seen? How was it? (More importantly – how did they look!?)
Terri will be sleeping for a week and then look somewhat revived from this latest binge o’ writing. In the meantime, she’d thrilled that her newest Harlequin Historical is now available widely in all kinds of formats! and she just learned that her next MacLerie Clan story will be called AT THE HIGHLANDER’S MERCY and be out in April 2013~ woohooo!!
