7 Quick Takes Friday

I was all set to write my Quick Takes when I realized that I only had a small amount of desk time left, and I had not yet gone through the bills I was supposed to pay today. Truth be told, I did briefly considered choosing blogging. Then I imagined my husband coming home to a house with the electricity turned off, and me on my cell phone talking to the electric company, saying, “…you’re trying to tell me that you don’t make exceptions for BLOG CARNIVALS?!”

Paying bills it is. I look forward to reading your posts. Have a great weekend!

    Oh pish tosh. I have been playing fast and loose with bill due dates for years, with hardly any ill effects. Unless you count that time we did have the power turned off, and the suit from the credit card company. Which I don’t.

    I think this circumstance would fall under you (and your family) suffering for your art, which is of course your vocation, so… totally justifiable.

    You sound so grown up, Jennifer Fulwiler. Props for choosing the “adult” thing to do 😉 Also, thank you for the awesome response about how to deal with criticism. I really appreciate the words of wisdom :)

    Funny to imagine, but yeah, don’t let that happen on account of your blog and/or readers. :)

    Stupid responsibilities! Now I’ll just have to spend the rest of the afternoon imagining what your takes could have contained…

    Please tell me “desk time” is! I’m intrigued. If it involves self-discipline, I might be doomed, but I take it as a sign of hope that I want to know more. :)
