Just to be clear.../

The aforementioned "plans for February" may include one, some or all of the following:

hibernation, a cupcake fast (JUST cupcakes, not NO cupcakes), the traditional February blahs, a new snowsuit, some script work for Noble Parasites, my bi-annual trip to the gym, M's birthday, Rufus' gravy-free birthday, a Valentine's Day protest, more cupcakes, anemia, my dad's birthday, a really red nose, some confusion surrounding how many days there are in a month...and maybe a spontaneous trip to Mexico if I can get enough voice gigs to cover the cost.

To my knowledge, those are the only confirmed plans on the horizon. Sorry to disappoint...

If I were you, I would go with hibernation, and cupcakes. It gets pretty cold in AR in Feb (as I'm sure it does in Canada), so being as inactive as posible, and staying indoors, would be ideal.
I'm not really sure what everyone else was thinking you were going to do. I guess I'm not up on a lot of gossipy stuff.

My own birthday is in February - my 21st. Got no clue what I'm going to do for it though, if anything.

I have a feeling certain people will be equally as interested in what plans you have for March - possibly during the timeline of the Creation Con. But I'm not going to either Pegasus 2 or that, so I won't bug you in that direction. ;)

*stoic face* I'm absolutely not disappointed. Nope.

Waaaahh, you're not coming! I'm sooo crushed I don't think I'll ever recover ;)

Between you and me, better Mexico than London in February :)

Hello Kate. As always, very good to hear from you. My vote for February (if you can afford it): avoid the blahs with a trip to Mexico with M and Rufus (and cupcakes) for M's birthday/Valentine's Day trip. Walking around on beaches or city streets in the tropical heat should equal a gym workout (or is that just in my world?) Make special cupcakes (or a treat of some kind) for your dad's birthday and do the script worl during the 'to and from' parts of the Mexico trip. By all means..avoid anemia!

Thad has a suggestion for your writer's block: if the songs are coming easily, consider writing everything in song. You could leave it that way, or convert it to dialog later. He points out "Cats" which is nothing more than T.S. Elliot's peotry set to music. And it works so well!

Have to go now, but take care.

Can I have gravy for my birthday? Followed by cupcakes?


P.S. In Mexico?

I vote for Becky's February Plan Amalgamation.

Make special cupcakes, sure, but not... special cupcakes. You know.

Oh. But we were having so much fun coming up with our various theories!

It was a distraction.

Well, I certainly hope you're able to score enough gigs to take a trip to Mexico. Wish I was rich enough to have some sort of vacation home there to offer you.

But I'm not rich.

Hmm. Maybe I need to go on a cupcake fast to get over this fact.

My birthday is in February, and every year I plan to treat myself to the luxurious (and cheap - $20!) chocolate buffet at the Ritz Carleton on Thursday nights. And then every year, two days before my plans, I remember that Valentine's Day exists. Grrr!

Hmmm... today is a Thursday.

Cupcakes... hibernation....


Sounds a hell of a lot better than my February. That will involve classes of screaming Navy Brats and trying to complete the DFES (Department for Education and Skills) Standard Assessments for QTS (Qualified Teacher Status).

Yupp. Hibernation & Cupcakes sounds like the way to go. And possibly the scripts. Heck, most of it sounds better than mine.

February... I think I've got holidays the last week, but I'm not quite sure... And it's so cold in february *hates*

I bet there's enough different kinds of cupcakes in the world to merit cupcake fasts all the time. And so many are fruit flavored; you'd never get scurvy. They should totally replace ramen as the ultimate lazycheap food.

That's a whole lot to stuff into February. After all, it's the shortest month. If I were you, I'd postpone that biannual gym trip in lieu of more Mexico. It wouldn't do to tire yourself out when the year has barely even started.

Anyway, hope some plans come for Feb. Give Rufus a squeeze for me.

Hibernation sounds good. It it were possible, I would do the same, though I'd miss my birthday in February! I think my cat and three ferrets would interupt my hibernation!

Ah, you've now experienced the weirdness known as "fannish hive mind wishful thinking."

Also, reacting to the subliminal message Rufus put into this when you weren't looking, I was forced to go to my kitchen this afternoon and bake chocolate fudge cupcakes . . . with little fish decorations on top.

February is F-U-N. Well, at least if you're in the Southern Hemisphere, I suppose. It's all sun-sun-sun-sun. And humidity. And trips to the beach. And my trip interstate! (um, it TOTALLY didn't take me 2 years to save up the money to go....because I totally wasn't spending it on buying myself things).

February is also spent ruing Valentines Day here too....(sigh)...

Anyway! Hope, your, uh, plans, come to fruition? (Is my spelling totally off the planet too?)

Kikou !

C'est amusant de voir la curiosité des KateBlogAddict !
Oh une surprise en février ! C'est quoi ? Dis c'est quoi? S'il te plaît, je t'en prie, dis le moi !! lol !

En tout cas je pense que le meilleur plan dans la liste que tu as énoncé c'est le voyage au Mexique !(oui, je suis passée au tutoiement, ça fait plus jeune ;p. Après tout on est dans la même tranche d'âge. Chacune aux extrêmes !)
D'ailleurs vu le commentaire que "M" a laissé (si c'est bien lui), il a l'air d'accord !

L'achat d'une nouvelle tenue pour la neige est aussi je pense un bon investissement (surtout pour une hibernation confortable).
Nous qui, ici en France, paniquont quand deux flocons de neige tombent, on fait beaucoup rire nos cousins canadiens qui sont ensevelit tout l'hiver sous ce manteau blanc !

J'ai une question idiote: qu'est-ce que c'est un "cupcake"?
Une autre question: est-ce qu'on pourrait voir une photo de ta nouvelle coloration ? Dans ton avant-dernier post, tu disais que tu était rousse maintenant.

Oups ! il faut que je me dépêche j'ai cours: Histoire de la Pensée Politique...(je sais c'est passionnant !)

Bisous et à la prochaine pour la leçon de français signée Dso17 !

February... The hottest month of the year.

School used to start around the 20th, but university doesn't start until march. So it's one long, hot month of working, swimming, camping, waiting for exam results to be published and being with friends. The family who were around for Christmas have usually left, so Feb is a time for friends.

After December (summer gets started, birthdays, christmas), February is probably my 2nd favourite month.

I'm off to make some more cupcakes.

Hibernation in Mexico with cupcakes sounds good to me, in fact do you want to do a swap? I'll do the whole Mexico/cupcake thing and you can do February in Scotland with icicles hanging from your nose and numb toes.

I could go for the whole hibernation thing. Although I'm thinking the month of October sounds good for that. Bleh, the weather can't seem to decide what it wants to do yet. Hot or Cold? Hopefully we'll start just cooling down slowly and stop jumping back up into the 90's (30's). ooh and i'll take some of your cupcakes too!

Good luck on getting the voice gigs to cover the trip to Mexico. :)

Hi Kate,
Seeing as we are both going to be turning 29 for the next six/seven years pretty soon. How about asking for some suggestions on your blog for things to do before your ___. (I don't like the sound of it)(32 sounds better for some weird reason..perhaps the 2 at the end - my mental age!) Suggestions that don't cost a lot and can be done in about 2 weeks would be good.

Hey Paula !!!
Merci beaucoup pour la photo du cupcake !!!
En fait j'en ai vu quand j'étais en angleterre cet été mais je ne me suis pas risqué à le manger ! Il me semble que c'est un gâteau très "anglophone" lol ;)

Kate ? Est-ce que tu connaitrais des pièces de théâtre comtemporaines qui se dérouleraient dans les années 1950 (quelquesoit le pays) sur la condition féminine ?
Je participe à l'écriture d'une pièce de théâtre et ma culture théâtrale n'est pas géniale.
En fait on partirai des costumes et des idées d'une fille qui est fan de ces années 50.

Je te demande car pour l'instant tu es la seule professionnelle dans ce domaine avec qui j'ai un contact plus ou moins établi !
Merci d'avance !
