Prompt Friday: "Body Snatchers from Mars"

Prompt:
"Wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy."
_______________________________________
"Body Snatchers from Mars"


Woke up and immediately did not recognize my surroundings. That can't be good. The last time that happened, I was stranded in the middle of a highly active sheep pasture.

Let me be the first to tell you that sheep bite hard.

I struggled to my feet, swaying slightly with the usual post-abduction headache. You would think that an advanced species that can travel through light years of space in mere minutes would be able to develop a tractor beam that didn't leave its target feeling like they'd just been clubbed with the business end of a baseball bat.

I was in a very large bedroom -- scratch that, hotel room, judging by the room service carts in the corner -- that was trying its best for a French Baroque look but was falling short. It was probably for the best.

I patted myself, taking stock of my pockets. I pulled a wallet out of my pocket with unfamiliar hands. Uh-oh. I pulled out the license: Sean John Combs.

Well, that was certainly new.

Notes: I can't believe that I actually had an in-depth discussion about what would happen if you actually DID wake up feeling like P. Diddy. As in body-swapped. Thanks, Ke$ha. Thanks a lot.

In other news, I will be absent from the internet for a week. No, I haven't died. Be back 8/16.

Question Wednesday

Q:How are you?

A:
Friggin' awesome. 'Nuff said. Today, unfortunately, consists of cleaning, but I think Anomaly and I are going to have some quality time later.

Status Report Monday (if i button the top button, i'll get nothing done)

I don't think my boss realizes that I'm an effective 'team leader' because of the fact that I start buttoning my uniform shirt at button #3. Otherwise, he wouldn't have told me to button it today. Me, being me, couldn't help but sass him.

I mean, really. How do you think I get everything done? I need foam and duct tape? ACTIVATE BUTTON #3! Need prompt service at the bank? GO GO GADGET BUTTON #3! Need the mechanic to look at something wonky with my van? *CUE SEXAPHONE MUSIC* ENTER STAGE LEFT: BUTTON #3! Free coffee? BUTTON #3!

Needless to say, I haven't buttoned my button.

Writing has been going. Kind of. Anomaly is coming along, but I hate it again, so blah. I will forge ahead, however. I really want to sit down and work on Harem because the longer I'm away from it, the more I will probably forget what I was writing in the first place, and I'll totally lose my flow. Lame.

I should go get on that, actually.
