Nope, not blogging about Dan Brown’s book or the movie that was made from it. Although, yeah, that image is from publicity shots for the movie. I though it was pretty cool. Demon on one side, angel on the other. Yeah, very cool.
I suppose I have angels and demons on the mind because I’ve been watching the TV show Supernatural . The season finale of season 4 was on this past Thursday. And it was a doozy. And I can’t wait for the start of Season 5 on September 10th.
Let’s just say that there’s a war going on in Heaven but it’s angels against angels. Some angels, you see, want to release Lucifer and bring on the Apocalypse so that they can do a final whoop-ass on the unholy one.
When Dean Winchester asks the angel Zachariah—who appears to be the leader of the angels who want to perform “this planetary enema” as Zachariah calls it—how God can go along with a plan that’s slated to kill millions of his creations, Zachariah tells him, with a smug smile, “God has left the building.”
One of the angels who is trying to stop these rather demented angels is Castiel (pictured above), who is played by Misha Collins. Collins is very good in the role and became so popular he’s going to be in the majority of the Season 5 episodes.
I have to admit I sometimes find demons and angels more fascinating than werewolves and vampires. So fascinating, in fact, I’m thinking about writing a story about them at some point.
Speaking of writing, this temp assignment I’m currently toiling at is a doozy. Especially in terms of how it affects my writing. I make less money but I have to work harder than most assignments I’ve had. You see, it’s straight-up, no chaser data-entry.
By the time I get home, I swear my brain has melted into a big gray shuddering blob of goo. As one of the other temps I’m working with commented, it’s one of those assignments where you basically turn off all higher brain functions. She’s got that right!
This is where I imagine I’m at sometimes during the day just to escape.
So I’m getting up at the crack of dawn to do the majority of my writing. I had totally forgot we have Labor Day off (not good for me as I don’t get paid for holidays) so I’ll have an extra day to write but less money at the end of the week. Great. Just great.
Anywho, I am doing my very early morning writing sessions faithfully so I’m still chugging along with my writing but I hope I can find work that’s less zombie-like and pays more. Or that I win the lottery. Or that I make so much from writing I can quit working altogether. Now, wouldn’t that be lov-er-ly. 😉
Until that happens,however, it’s up early to write and then home after the mind-numbing, soul-stealing temp assignment to try and at least read if nothing else. Writing is usually out of the question, especially after looking dead-eyed at a computer monitor all frikkin’ day. 😦
But, I shouldn’t complain. Millions are out of work and I am grateful for the assignment and for the money, little as it is. I am always grateful for the blessings I receive but that doesn’t mean, however, that I’m going to be complacent.
I will always want more and I don’t think that makes me any different from any one else. Ain’t no shame in wanting more, I always say, just in wanting more than you can handle or deserve. 😉
