Me & My Muse – Day 2049: Chill Weekend…

For this weekend, I don’t have much planned.  I plan on filling up my gas and checking up on the Toyota Camry.  Besides that, I don’t have much planned for today.  It would definitely be a perfect day to work more on my story…

Anyway, time to get ready!

Today’s high is going to be 26 degrees and the silver lining is having a nice and quiet Saturday at home.

To those of you who are enjoying this Saturday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I’m up for that!  I’ll finish this book and then watch a movie!  Time to refill my coffee…


Me & My Muse – Day 2048: Singled Out: Feathers and Fedoras Edition

I will have to admit. Last night was pretty fun. At Genji, me and my Muse each ordered two orders of sushi. Of course, I got my usual, which was the Cupid Roll. My other one was the Hot Jamaican Roll. My Muse also got a Cupid Roll with a Spicy Tuna Roll.

Along with the Sushi, we each got a dinner. Sparing no expense, I went all out. I got the Filet Mignon and Lobster Tail. She, of course, got the same thing. The chef was pretty funny and quite enjoyable to listen to. He made jokes about my Muse, which she found ridiculous.

After the dinner, I went to Meijer and got her a card and the biggest box of chocolate that I could find. Sure, it cost me $20, but she was worth it. When I was done shopping, she took care of hers. We then went home.

At home, we signed our cards and exchanged them. I opened hers and she opened mine. I then got out the big heart-shaped box of chocolates. She, of course, had to outdo me with an even BIGGER box, with a bouquet of roses.

After that, we went to the bedroom, and we…kissed. That’s all we did. The clothes remained on, as I vow to remain pure through my wedding day. This includes fictional women.

Last night was fun. Yes, it was a date. But a purely fictional one. If anything, a simulation of what I can expect in the future. Getting to reality, I am single, and fortunately there is a day to celebrate that. That day is today. And to all you couples out there, you’re not invited. For Single’s Awareness Day, it’s SINGLES only. Not couples. Your day was yesterday. Sorry.

Muse: Last night was fun, even though it was purely fictional.

It was quite enjoyable. At least I wasn’t alone.

Muse: And neither was I. Besides. I’m getting you ready for the real thing. When “she” comes along, won’t you want to be ready?

Indeed I would. There is no substitute for the real thing, except for you, of course.

Muse: And I’m the perfect substitute. One that is deeply in love with you.

But I am still single, since Intangibles don’t count. Happy Single’s Awareness Day…

Muse: Technically, they don’t. I know. Technically, I too am single, since I don’t have another Intangible to be with…But wasn’t last night fun? We should go on more dates…

Maybe another time. But today, I need to get ready. I need to get to work…

Muse: I’ll let you do that. Get ready, then!

I will. But I need to end this, first.

Muse: I’ll let you. Time for a shower!

Here’s today in a nutshell. This morning, I will be heading in to work.  At the end of the day, I will be going to an event called Feathers and Fedoras, an event put on through the Disability Network of Mid-Michigan.  There will be auctions there to raise money for that organization.  I will be there at a table with my Dow group from work, so it should be quite fun.

Today’s high is going be be 27 degrees and the silver lining is enjoying the gift of singleness.

To those of you who are still single like me, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

Muse: Have fun at the event tonight!  Time for a shower…

Me & My Muse – Day 2047: Happy Hallmark Day…

Once again, it’s that time of year.  The day where romantic couples can celebrate the love that they have for each other.  And that celebration is reveled in reading mushy cards, chewing conversation hearts and chocolates and dining at an expensive restaurant.

Despite this holiday being based off of a priest named Saint Valentine, this is a greeting card day.  A cash cow for Hallmark and one of their most profitable days, besides Christmas.  According to some figures that I have heard, Americans have spent $20 billion on Valentine’s Day.  If I am the Scrooge of Valentine’s Day, then bah humbug!

For today, I’m going to try to make some one happy.  All I need to do now is to figure out who I would…


Muse:  Would you be my Valentine?

As cliché as it is, sure.  Is this going to be another date like last year?

Muse:  It is.  I really want a date and there is no one that I can find who is suitable.

What?!  ME date someone who is totally imaginary?  Are you out of your mind?  Granted, I really enjoyed it last year, but again?!

Muse:  Yes again.  I really enjoyed our date from last year and I would like to do this again.  Just think about it.  It would be better to date someone imaginary than no one at all.  After all, this day is quite lonely for those who can’t find dates…

You’re just trying to make me feel better.

Muse:  That, and I have already shared my undying affection for you.  And you said it yourself.  You want to make others happy on this day, right?  Can we PLEASE go on a date?  Maybe this will persuade you.


Wow.  Okay.  I’m convinced.  Where to, Sadie Hawkins?

Muse:  We could go to Genji’s.  I love that place.

I do too, but it will be packed on a night like tonight.  And if we’re going, we need to make reservations NOW.

Muse:  Done!  I already have them set up for 6:30.

Also…oh no…

Muse:  What?

If you’re my Valentine, I didn’t get you anything for Valentine’s Day.  No card, roses or chocolates.  Nothing.

Muse:  That’s okay.  You can buy them after dinner.  I have my rose for you, but I still have to get the card.  We can go in separate rooms to sign them.

Sounds like a plan.  But this is a joke, right?

Muse:  It’s not.  I’m serious.  I WANT a date!  I am not sitting home alone on this day.  Can you please take me seriously?  This is a real date.

A real date with a fake person.  Okay.

Muse:  What was that?  At this point, I would be angry.  But I love you too much!


Whoa.  You kiss way better than any real person ever could.

Muse:  Trust me.  A real kiss from a real girl will be better than this.  But this will have to do for now…When are you picking me up?

With my usual work schedule ending around 4:00, we can arrange for an earlier dinner this time.  How about five o’ clock this year for a change?

Muse:  Five will work. I’ll be reading a romance novel in the meantime.  See you at five!


Well, that was interesting.  At least I won’t be alone later on.  Today, I’ll be working my usual day.  A little later, I’ll be going on a “date” with my Muse.  I can’t believe that I just said that.  Granted, it will be weird, but it will keep my sanity intact.

Today’s high is going to be 38 degrees and the silver lining will be going on a date with my Muse.

To those of you lovebirds who are perfectly content with sharing your love with the world, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Oh, I’m so glad that he said yes!  I am determined to fill that void that he has in that lonely heart of his.  Time to put on the best clothes that I own and the best perfume!  His eyes will melt when he sees me next…Happy Valentine’s Day, Kyle!  I promise you that I will make it a good one.

Me & My Muse – Day 2046: Adult DG and Ramsey Course…

Yup.  Those two activities pretty much make up the beginning and the end of this day.

And this week is almost over, so that should be fun and exciting.  Time to get ready to leave for my Adult DG at 6 in the morning…

Today’s high is going to be 23 degrees and the silver lining is having another satisfying FPU course to take tonight.

To those of you who like saving money, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I’m ready for the next course!  I just need my first cup of coffee.  Time to turn the coffee on…

Me & My Muse – Day 2045: The Storm Begins Again…

It sounds very much like a sequel,  but I know that it’s true.

With this storm happening, I’m borrowing the truck and taking it in to work.  Later on, I will navigate the dangerous roads to get home. That’s pretty much this day in a nutshell.

Today’s high is going to be 31 degrees and the silver lining is later, when I come home from the storm.

To those of you who have to deal with this winter storm, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  *yawn*  It hasn’t started coming down yet, but it’s about to.  I better start the coffee…

Me & My Muse – Day 2044: The Calm Before the Next Snow Storm…

With it being the eve before another storm, I need to get ready for tomorrow.

The weather is iffy, so I might be taking another vehicle tomorrow.

Time to call it night.

Today’s high is going to be 33 degrees and the silver lining is being able to get some things done.

To those of you who are waiting for winter to end, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Again?  Didn’t we just get a bunch of snow?  Here we go again…

Me & My Muse – Day 2043: Sunday Solace…

Today has been quite relaxing.  I didn’t really do much today.  I just went to church and played a little bit of Kingdom Hearts III.  I might do some more reading before I go to bed.  That’s about it.

Today’s high is going to be 23 degrees and the silver lining is being able to enjoy one more day.

To those of you who are enjoying this Sunday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  This Sunday has been relaxing. Time to read another chapter!
