Okay. I had a set of Living Faith devotions due today. Check. Have an 1100-word article due for OSV tomorrow. Baby took a super-nap, I mainlined some Diet Coke (rough night last night) and got to work. Wrote 1300 words, which is good – that means tomorrow, when they’re at the sitter, all I have to do is cut and sharpen, which isn’t half as daunting as starting from scratch. Now all I have left this week is to do questions and an author bio for Catholics by Brian Moore, work on a script for a segment on Mary for a DVD that someone (I’m still not exactly sure who) is producing for distribution to young adults in the military and start seriously putting my head into my fiction proposal.
All the while, digging out cheerios from the carpet and snatching legos from baby’s mouths!
Oh, by the way – I just got off the phone with a survey on movie-going habits. Agreed because I thought it would be good to do my bit to tell Hollywood how lame it is. At the end, the surveyor asked my educational level. I told her, and she chuckled. "Of course," she said. "Everyone who answers the surveys has been to college. People who don’t go to college don’t want to participate."
A quite interesting observation. If true, why would that be? Because college grads are more confident in their opinions, or that their views "count?" Like to hear the sounds of our own voices?
