Me & My Muse – Day 140: Leftover Chinese

Judging by what you just saw in the title, yeah.  I had Chinese last night,  and it was really good.

For those of you who just love Chinese, you’re probably wondering.  “What did you have?”  I had Hot Squid, Stir Fry Scallops, Mongolian Beef and Szechuan Chicken with crab meat cheese wontons, Asian calamari, a bowl of hot-sour soup and a fortune cookie for dessert.

Now Chinese isn’t something that I always have.  But when my parents don’t want to cook, we get it.  And we don’t get it on a regular basis, since it’s quite expensive.  Now if I was on my own, I would be getting this a lot less often.  Looking into the future, Chinese would be unaffordable living in a 2 bedroom apartment paying utilities and a myriad of other bills.

When we get to that chapter in my life, I will probably be on the Ramen Noodle Diet.  At that time, I will also be trying to find a date, since I will have some space of my own.

And getting there starts with today.  I am going to look at a website called Wealthy Affiliate.  It is absolutely free to join and there are no strings attached.  They don’t even ask for your credit card information!  There are no trials and it’s free for life.  I will be using this to learn how to market my books and draw more traffic to this website.


Muse:  *sob* It happened again!  I had nightmares once again.  I had them all night and that Dark Muse was in every one of them!

Try to think of something positive.  A lot of this has to do with bad memories.

Muse:  It’s not bad memories.  She will not leave me alone!  Why don’t you believe me?!  *sob*

Show me where she is, and I will believe you.

Muse:  I might as well show you the air!  She will not appear for you at all!  She is doing this so you won’t believe me!

I think you are delusional, and if you don’t stop this, I’m going to get you on some medication.

Muse:  *sniff* But I’m not making this up….

Have you ever heard of The Boy Who Cried Wolf?

Muse:  Yes.  I’ve read that story several times as a kid.  But I am not crying wolf!  She is there, and she won’t leave me alone!

And you won’t stop making this up.  Just give it a rest!

Muse:  Don’t believe me?  Fine!  *sob*


Don’t worry.  She will be medicated soon.  If this continues, this will certainly happen.

Today’s high is going to be 33 degrees and the silver lining will be more job search progress and making more progress on my story

To all of you who love Chinese, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


*Dark Muse appears, and circles around Muse in the Realm of Imagination*

Dark Muse:  This is the best game of hide and seek ever!  He will never believe you, because I will never come out of hiding.  Tee hee!

Muse:  Urr!  I hate you!  He’ll believe me if I give him some proof….

Dark Muse:  Good luck with that.  I’ll destroy your evidence!  Tee hee….
