Me & My Muse – Day 308: Movie Review Backlog

With Mother’s Day now over, it’s back to the grind.  The search for work continues.  And, if there’s time, more writing.

Even after those three movie reviews that I have written, I have noticed a backlog of movies starting to form.  In due time, I will want to have written movie reviews for the following movies:

– Heaven is for Real

– Rio 2

– The Amazing Spider Man 2

And as of this Friday, Godzilla will be added to the list.

Now, without further ado, I need to get started with everything before my bus picks me up.  I most certainly need to apply for something before the public transit whisks me away to work.  A text?  Again? I don’t have time for this.


Muse: Kyle?  Can you come to my house?  Please?

Kyle:  This again?  You’re just going to tell me to go away after I arrive.  I’m calling it.

Muse:  I don’t care.  I hate being shy.  I have to do something!

Kyle:  And that something is being afraid when I show up?  That’s accomplishing something.  Isn’t it?

Muse:  So, are you going to come?

Well, I really need to get going with my day.  If I tell her no, I’ll make her upset again.

Muse:  Well?

What do I tell her?  If I say yes, she will just get afraid when I visit her.  It will not work either way.

Muse:  You’re taking too long to answer.  Fine!  You’re coming.  Now!

Kyle:  I am, huh?

Muse:  I said, NOW!!!

*gets transported to Muse’s house in the Realm of Imagination*

Muse:  Oh no!  He’ll be here any second!  What do I do?  Where is it?  I had that confidence before….

*appears in Muse’s room*

Muse:  Eeeek!  G-go away!

See?  I told you.  You leeched just enough confidence from me that you want me to visit.  And then, when I visit, that confidence is drained fast by that black hole of yours.

Muse:  N-n-not again!  I’m shrinking!

*Muse shrinks to a quarter of an inch tall*

Muse:  There.  Now he won’t see me….

Did it happen again?

Muse:  What does it matter?  I can’t do anything right!  I try to get you to visit and then I don’t even know what to say when you do!.  Just….leave!

It’s your confidence vacuum.  It sucks up every bit of confidence in sight.

Muse:  Shut up!  You’re just making that up because you don’t like me.

I never said that.

Muse:  Yes you did!  You hate me!  Everyone hates me!

*a bright aura surrounds the Muse and engulfs the entire house in a bright light*

Whoa….I felt that!

Muse:  Felt what?

You just did it.  You flashed and you drained every bit of confidence in this entire room.  Fortunately, I still have plenty.

Muse:  You’re lying! *sob*  I don’t believe you!

Well, believe me or not, it’s happening, whether you’re aware of it or not.

Muse:  No it ISN’T!!!!

*Muse flashes again and aura begins covering the area surrounding the Muse’s house*

Muse:  Come closer.

*sigh* What will this accomplish?

*approaches Muse*

Muse:  Y-you’re too big!

Whoa!  W-what’s happening to me?

*shrinks down to one one-hundredth of the Muse’s size*

Muse:  EEEEK!   Even at your tiny size, I am still afraid of you!

Um….Can you please change your clothes?

Muse:  Shut up!   Aaah! No…..

Now you REALLY need to change your clothes!

Muse:  J-j-just go away!

Well, you brought me here.

Muse:  Well, I order you to leave, now!

I wish I could help you….

Muse:  I said LEAVE!!!!

*gets teleported back to reality*

Time to get ready for work, and….oh no!  Everything is gigantic!  The carpet looks like a vast jungle of fuzz!  She forgot to make my size normal again!  I hope that I find a way to get my size restored before work.

Today’s high is going to be 72 degrees and the silver lining is being able to continue with the job search.

To those of you in the midst of the daily grind, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Oh.  I won’t let him visit me again.  I feel like hiding forever.  I think I will….

*Muse shrinks down to microscopic size and makes herself invisible*

Muse:  There.  Now he’ll never find me.  Ever!

*Muse casts clean spell on herself and hugs a strand of fur on her stuffed bunny, while weeping incessantly*
