It's Friday, and that means it's Likes & Gripes time. Here goes:

2. Long Weekends—It's Memorial Day weekend and that means one more glorious day of freedom from work. I'm spending my days off in Maryland this weekend, eating amazing food, revising Painless, hanging out with Matt's family, playing board games, going to the movies and relaxing. What are your plans?
3. Revisions—When I write a book, I never stop to read back over what I've written as I go. I know that if I were to do that, I'd spend so much time on changing words and sentences that I'd never actually get anything down on the page! This means that by the time I'm finished with a book, I'm not totally sure how it reads. Now that I'm finished with my first draft of Painless, I'm reading back through it and editing as I go. So far so good....it's making sense, seems to have a good pace and I don't hate it. It appears I'm right on course!

2. No more TV shows—I thought that having shows on hiatus would be good, because I wouldn't be crazy trying to keep up with the 13 shows I HAVE to watch each week, but now that every show (besides "Glee") has wrapped up their season, I'm starting to have withdrawls. Oh well, I guess that's what Netflix is for, right?
3. Life Imitating Art—This guy robs a drugstore, gets caught, then writes a book about it, which is then made into a movie....and then robs another drugstore and gets caught. Oh, and did I mention he's in his 70s? Come on, guy, you basically gave the cops a blueprint of your evil plan...
4. SCRAM—Anyone hear about Lindsay Lohan being forced to wear a device called a SCRAM, which monitors whether she's drinking? Apparently, a judge is forcing her to wear it until her court proceedings are over (for alcohol-related charges), as well as requiring her to take an alcohol abuse course and random drug tests. Being that most people who have problems with drinking need to have a desire to quit drinking, I'm not sure if this is a good solution for her or not. It is an interesting thought though, like a more rigidly enforced ultimatum. But will it actually help her get sober?
