Mimosa Tuesday

"In spite of the cost of living, it's still popular." Kathleen Norris

I went to something called an exit interview today. I checked some boxes to describe my experiences, positive and negative, at the full-time job I was leaving. I looked for a check box that said: I am leaving because I am insane. There wasn't a box. I guess not many people admit to insanity on that sort of form. Other forms yes.

I had a year-and-a-half old bottle of champagne from a party I threw. I don't usually serve champagne and didn't on that night either, but one likes to be prepared in case a celebration breaks out at a party.

I mixed the champagne with some orange juice fortified with calcium and antioxidants. Right, thereby converting it into health food. I ate organic strawberries and toasted a new life...one in which I suspect a perfectly lovely hobby, writing, will turn into a perfectly wretched way of making a living. Despite this concern, I am inordinately cheerful. This has to do with a terribly ingrained and unflagging optimism, which is not particularly realistic, but which I recommend wholeheartedly along with a small pitcher of mimosas and a very good literary agent.

Btw, *love* the quote!
