Involuntary Solitary Confinement May Lead To More Productivity

While I am still on my ‘forced facebook hiatus’ I have plenty of time to take care of all the other things in my life that tend to get overlooked due to excessively abusing Facebook.

Yanno, the simple things, like showering, shampooing (and conditioning) my hair, brushing my teeth, doing the laundry.  Wow. I had no idea how dirty facebooking makes me.

And I have a lot of time to watch television.

Speaking of television [and extra time] there are two really great new shows that have just premiered and I feel it is my duty as your friend, and as a television aficionado to share them with you. You should totally check out my written reviews of  Royal Pains and Nurse Jackie.

[You can thank me later.]

I also have plenty of time to catch up with all of you and your blogs. Which is a welcomed and refreshing change of pace.

While reading one of my regular favorites, ‘Midget Man Of Steel’, also known as Moooog35, and author of the blog Mental Poo, I stumbled upon an awesomely kick ass guest post written on his blog.

The guest blog post, written by a woman named Lilu, was just about the funniest thing I had read in a long time, and I practically pulled a muscle from laughing so hard. After reading THIS I simply had to go over to her blog, Live It, Love It, and read more. And may I suggest you do the same.

[Again, you can thank me later!]

When all of that was said and done, I still have miraculous amounts of time on my hands. And then I remembered, ‘Oh yeah, I am trying to write a book!’

I managed to get a wonderful start to Chapter Ten in my book!  So far this is the longest and most detailed chapter I’ve ever written. Chapter Ten already has 18 pages and 6,720 words, and its only half way finished. If all goes according to plan, it will be posted, and ready for your reading enjoyment by this upcoming Monday.

Hell, since Facebook still has me on ‘Lock Down‘ who knows what else I will be capable of accomplishing? Maybe I will finally solve that pesky world hunger problem, or cure cancer. Or at best finish Chapter Ten!

  • Good to hear your FB issues have been sorted out 😀 Back to writing on the walls again, huh 😀

  • Did they tell you why you were banished in the first place?
    Glad all is back to normal. Can’t wait to read more of the book!!

  • Meleah

    Nick:
    It’s WAS like a sigh of relief!

    Selma:
    Sort of. They sent me a pretty vague email, and within an hour or so after that, I was able to comment again! YAY!

    Oh, as for the book, ever since YOUR email, I have been working and writing harder than ever. I cannot thank you enough for THAT. I am so lucky to have you in my life and I feel blessed you are my friend.

  • showering is good. brushing your teeth, combing your hair. great. lol

    get out! chapter 10 is that long. wow, can’t wait to read, if you post it.

  • Lilu may be the only woman who is filthier than me…you need to warn your readers about this since it appears I’m the only one who will comment using a word harsher than ‘dadgummit’ here.

    Lilu and I believe we’re either soulmates, or separated conjoined twins that somehow got lost in the netherregions of the childcare system.

    Which makes it gross when you get right down to the sexual attraction, but whatever.

  • Meleah

    Valerie:
    I am going to do my best to post that by Monday!

    Mooog35:
    Hmm. I probably should warn people. My readers might NOT be expecting THAT sort of humor, which I totally enjoy, and very much appreciate, but could never personally write, or much less think of.

    “since it appears I’m the only one who will comment using a word harsher than ‘dadgummit’ here” …. REALLY? Am I that G-Rated?

    I also believe you and her are identical twins or something. The two of you are sick, but in the funniest way possible. I love both of your blogs. And, I think I might have a real Girl Crush on LiLu.

  • hmmm….”misuse” of Facebook? YOU!!!!???!!!!! No way, dood. lol. i’m dying laughing at the pic of your parents down below…

  • Yay, all is well again on FB, it was not the same without you there!

  • Computer has been down due to The Asshole, I’m barely functioning at home 🙁

  • Meleah

    Lurango:
    My parents are always good for a laugh.

    Barbara:
    Oh I hated being banned from commenting on FB
    it WAS nice to be back in action.

    The Girl:
    That sucks.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but the first Festivus was celebrated in February 1964. The Seinfeld Festivus was December 23rd. So, either way, it’s totally the wrong time of year to be a Festivus miracle.

    You’re doing better with your writing than I am. I have 2,181 words in my outline and 24 words of story so far.

  • Meleah

    DCR:
    I dont care what “season” it’s supposed to be for festivus! I’m still breaking out the festivus metal pole and celebrating with the feats of strength because I can comment again!
    🙂

    This writing business is hard work!

  • Welcome back to facebook commentary land! Congratulations on chapter 10, I need to start reading your book!

  • Maybe I need to be banished from facebook for a few days…

    Oh wait. My problem is my job. Now that is a time waster. I wonder if I could get banned from my job for a few days…uh, never mind.

  • I’m glad you worked things out w/FB. I know how much you enjoy the site. I actually deactivated my profile. Haven’t decided if its temporary or not.

    I’m also happy you’ve been able to get more done on your book. That’s terrific. I can’t wait to read it!

  • well you disappeared from my friends list and i cannot find you when i search for your name.. i say its time to open a new account with a different name….

  • Look at it as a much needed break. I can only say that because I don’t use Facebook. But I’m glad to hear that you’re back on the wagon (so to speak). 🙂

  • Lee

    That’s what you get for using a phony name, Natasha!! I knew they would catch up with you sooner or later. Now you’re going to have to give back all of those mousetrap engineering plans you stole for Lower Baldonia.

    (I think I better quit reading spy novels.)

  • Meleah

    Marty:
    Sadly, it was a FALSE alarm. Now I am really kicked out. And I might have to wait an entire week to get my page back.

    Silver:
    I ban you from work for a week.
    Did that help?

    Steph:
    I will let you know as soon as chapter 10 is posted!

    paisley:
    yeah, um, search for
    Mia Rebecca Baldwin
    xoxo

    Urban:
    Nope. I’m kicked off again, big time

    Lee:
    LOL. This is sooo gay.
    Um, I am making a NEW page, under the FAKE NAME

    Mia Rebecca Baldwin

  • I have an idea! You should pretend to be me. Use my facebook page and make me look like an active member of the community!

    Seriously. What is FB’s problem?

  • dcr

    Does Alec know he got married? 😉

  • DAMN!!! i hope that doesnt happen to mine, keep us posted.

    What the hell, you did nothing. 🙁

  • Meleah

    Terri:
    ahahaha.
    And I have NO IDEA.
    FB Hates me.

    DCR:
    Yeah, my twin sister is SO LUCKY, she always gets the great men.

    Loni:
    I am ready to flip out even more!

  • I was looking for you today on FB and couldn’t find you – wanted to see what you were up to? Please tell me that they didn’t ban you completely!!! I miss reading your updates. You should just get another account – first get another e-mail account and then another account!

  • Jay

    Well done with the writing, Meleah! Good going!!

    FB makes you dirty? Who knew! ROFL!!

    I’m trotting off to read those posts now. Ta for that!

  • I need someone to write my life story, I don’t want to….and I’ll pay extra for a prince charming happily ever after ending.

  • Meleah

    Terry:
    Look for Mia Rebecca Baldwin! They DID ban me for real, and disabled my account! I had to make a new page!

    Jay:
    I have been writing my ass off!

    DeboHobo:
    Deal!

  • I’ll be looking for Mia R. later today. Love your blog!

  • Terry

    Thanks! I’ll go looking for you now!

  • Meleah

    Sherry!
    Thank you!

    Terry:
    Yippee

  • Glad to see those chapters coming along. I saw Royal Pains and liked it myself. I was pleasantly surprised.

    A FB hiatus is a good thing indeed.

  • Hey you sounded so joyful in this post 🙂

    Look forward to reading your Chapter 10!

  • AHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! Rod/moog, that just did it. I am leaving B for you. We are meant to be together. In the creepiest way possible. Go put your Catwoman suit on, baby, we’re getting freaky tonight.
