How to Find Something that’s Missing

Here’s is my best tip on how to find something that’s been missing for weeks.

First, look everywhere. You have to.

Mention to people that your item(s) is missing.

Then stop looking and stew about it.

Go back and look again.

Post on your blog that you lost it and can’t find it.

Then go look in the same place you just looked before you posted on your blog.

Your missing item(s) will be there.

How You Know When You Have Too Much

I lost some candy. Or maybe I misplaced it.

I had two bags of candy that I bought in New York at Aji Ichiban. It was the perfect candy to hang onto for a while because it was all individually wrapped bulk candy. I photographed them and then put them carefully back in their bag, put them in a spot where I wouldn’t forget them and now they’re gone. It wasn’t a lot - but I did spend some time picking it out ... a special trip to Chinatown and about $10.

Then I had a bunch of candy that I didn’t want from the All Candy Expo and I’ve misplaced that too. I don’t care so much about that stuff, since, you know, I didn’t want it and all.

I just can’t figure how I’d lose two different bags of candy. But I have a lot of candy and it’s entirely possible that it’s here and I can’t see it through the din of candy noise.

For the record, I’m hoping to get rid of a bunch of it tonight at the Farmers Market blogger get-together thingy.

You Can Take the Girl out of the Internet

Is it wrong that as we’re trying to book a vacation and one of the things I’m most concerned about is internet access?

I mean, some of the places don’t even have PHONES! And we’re talking California here ...

I’m not looking to spend my whole vacation online, but I do like to keep in touch and stuff and of course I have my blogging empire to maintain (fast fiction is sadly neglected, I know).

During November it's all about me writing a novel. Sometimes it's about whalewatching. You know, and then there's other stuff.
