Sorry, I'm pulling for Germany to beat Argentina. Two reasons: Family heritage. Second, I don't like Maradona. Still remember his many "dives" looking for penalties, and him busted out of the 1994 Cup for using drugs.

A little more motivation and a little less complacency. 8)

A beer and a shot to start with and then a little less time on the train so I can write a little longer before its time to turn it all around and do it all again :(

I always need to clean before I sit down to write. I find that if I have dishes in my sink, or
laundry to do, or my son (who does a terrific impersonation of a tornado of destruction) has
left a mess around that I simply cannot focus.

I have tried but inevitably I always just have to get up and get things back in order around me
in order to get my mind into what I'm doing.
A writer is not a liar, they just take your truths and tell it back to you in a way you can understand.

To recharge, considering the alarm for my battery is going off. :-[

I need my dodgy finger to start bending again.  It's almost stopped hurting although its still a bit puffy.  But it doesn't want to bend.  It's quite funny in a sick kind of way,  I look down and see the other fingers bopping up and down on the keys and the dodgy one stubbornly refusing to join the dance.

It's caused a brief hiatus in the home breadmaking too.  I gave in and bought a loaf today.

I can do bread one-handed, I learned that years ago when I caught my hand in a commercial mixer, but it's not so much fun and definitely slower.

Gyp, this may sound a little 'off the wall' but a good natural (i hesitate to say cure) way to help with the arthritis is to eat cherries, and stay well hydrated.  You may have known this, but I thought I'd share just in case. 8)

Anyone have a cure for being unmotivated?  Wait, a cure that doesn't involve doing something I might consider painful. ;) That's what I need. 8)

I've said many times, a bag of fifties will suffice.   ::) ;)

I prefer my fifties in an attache case, neatly stacked beside the hundreds, although, the bag tends to look a little less conspicuous.

What I need is a good arse kicking for procrastinating.  Now if you'll excuse me, I have a few things I need to put off for a while. 8)

It depends on the size of the bag ;-)  I've never had more money than could be carried in my pockets, and/or a money belt.  Mind you, I do have poacher's pockets ;-)
