Why so crazed? …
Marcy stomps into the office where Cynthia is frazzled and intensely pressing computer keys.
Marcy: Where’s our blog post?
Cynthia: Leave me alooooone!
Marcy: No! We have a brand new website and not a single new post in over a week!
Cynthia: I knooooow!
Marcy: What gives?
Cynthia (somewhat hysterically): What gives?! What gives, you ask?! What gives?!
Marcy: I’m asking!
Cynthia (dramatically): This is what gives –
I’m presently reformatting over 250 of YOUR posts from BlogSpot over to WordPress. Plus, correcting links and figuring out HTML and more!
I am working on a new play for the Hollywood Fringe Festival in which I am acting, project managing, and creating the costumes that YOU are supposed to be helping me with. We open in a week.
I am in middle of a huge cat rescue mission that YOU are also definitely not helping with.
I am preparing for CatConLA on Saturday. We’re covering the cat fashion, you know.
Marcy: Oh. Yeah. Sorry.
Cynthia: We’ll get there, Marcy! It’s all good! Just give me a break.
Marcy: So what can I do?
Cynthia: Hmmm… Can you figure out HTML coding for me?
Marcy: Oh I know that already.
Marcy: No problem.
Marcy scrambles up to the computer.
She confidently presses a few computer keys.
The computer screen goes blank.
Cynthia passes out.
Four hours later.
Marcy: Wake up.
Cynthia (confused and groggy): So it was all a dream?
Marcy: No. But the computer screen is now a nice buzzy white instead of a scary gray.
Cynthia passes out again.
Marcy: Stop fainting. We’ve got stuff to do.
Cynthia goes back to looking like the frazzled Mona Lisa parody photo above – bugged out eyes, electrocuted hair, and trying not to vomit.
Wish us luck!
