Mamma mia, that's a spicy meatball!

I am having a good weekend. I got a gig writing a podcast script for a reputable website/company that pays ... are you ready? ... $150-$200. I have never made that much off of my writing before. I made $25 once and all of the other instances have been pro bono. I am more interested in the self-esteem boost that this is giving me than in the actual money itself. That will prob just go to bills anyway. But still! Yay! It's due Tuesday so I'm huffing and puffing. Nearly halfway done, though, so it's all good.

Last night I wanted to spoil Boyfriend. He makes breakfast, lunch and dinner for me nearly every day, so I wanted to revert to traditional gender roles just for a night. I made a big Italian sauce with meats and cheeses (Mother's recipe) and poured it over pasta, and I baked a Devil's Food cake. Everything came out well (*whew*) and it was really nice. Thing is, though, it was a lot for only two people. You know what that means... left overs baby!

The car drama worsened and I am too stressed and angry and wanting to punch a face in to write about it. Suffice it to say that the car has been finally picked up and I am praying for no more incidents or hidden fees. Madonna, people make me mad.

Today I interviewed a local professor-slash-musician for the magazine I write for. Let's hope he gets his pics in, unlike my last interview, so my piece can get published this time! *Crossing fingers*

Many many congrats on the paying gig! And the dinner sounds de-lish. Makin' me hungry.

That's great! I also just landed on a 150 paying gig! It's a great ego booster for us writers!

Here's to hoping for more of such luck.

btw I enjoy reading your blog. It's very friendly and professional.
Keep up the good work.
