I have to be myself

Everyone else was taken.

Drabble meme
Okay, now for the real one.

I've been trying to get the old creative juices flowing, and this seemed like a good way to start. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to give me a prompt - it can be a pairing, a person, a song, or all of the above - and I will write you a 100-500 word story for it.

So, I woke up this morning at nine thirty to my doorbell ringing every few seconds for about fifteen minutes. I went to answer it and it was my mom.

A little backstory here, I live across the street from a hospital and the couple of times that my dad has been there, my mom walks over and stays with me while he's having tests or whatever.

Anyway, my mom was at the door. I knew it wasn't about my dad because he's in New York for the next six days for work. She said that my grandma was in the emergency room. Here's a little more backstory for you, she was in a car accident this week and was hospitalized for three for pain management and then released. When they released her, they found a black spot on her lungs and assumed it was bruising from the seatbelt or the start of pneumonia. My mom took her home and at five thirty this morning, she woke up my mom by saying that she couldn't move and she thought she was having a heart attack. They called 911 and my grandma went to the hospital, they ran some tests and discovered that the dark spot was a blood clot.

So, she's in the ICU and I will not be around at all until we find out what's going on.

I'm a meme whore!

Regional accent meme

“Ok so I thought I would do this regional accent meeting cos it sounds like a lot of fun. Just ignore how squeaky my voice is. It's always been that way and that's why I was squeaky up until I was like 21. But ok so here we go. Say these words. Aunt, route, wash, oil, theater, iron, salmon, caramel or caramel, fire, water, sher(?), data, ruin, crayon, toilet, New Orleans, pecan, I think that's whatever. Both, again, probably, spitiemish(?), Alabama, lawyer, coupon, manneys(?), sheripp(?), pajamas, caught. I'm gonna say now answer these questions. What is it called when you throw a toilet paper on the house, when you TP a house, the bugs that curls into a ball as a rolly(?) polly(?), the bubbly carbonated(?) drink is soda. I called Jim's shoes tennis shoes at the hay ___ group of people despite of that as an oval shaped body and extremely long legs as a daddy long legs. I call my grandparents grandpa and grandma. The wheeled contraction that I carried in groceries at the supermarket is a grocery cart. I have no idea what it's called when it rains while the sun is shining, that never happens to you, the sun rarely shines here. And the thing I changed the TV channel with is a remote. Anyway that's all.”

I love this song, just thought I'd share. Justin Vernon is one of my favorite artists. (He also sang the part of Odysseus on Hadestown, which you all need to listen to.)

Just popping in to share an awesome new song that I'm madly in love with. (It's also on my Nano playlist). It's all dark and kind of twisty. I love it, and I think you all will, too. :*

Right, so just a quick update right now. I decided to do nanowrimo this year. I have a plot outline and my RL have been really supportive, which is awesome. One of them has graciously allowed me to bounce ideas off of her, and actually had a dream caused by my book last night, which was awesome. She actually gave me a couple of really good ideas for it.

Anyway, I've gotten off to a really good start and I'm determined that I will keep this momentum through the entire month. Wish me luck!
