I got an email this morning from La Junior Agent forwarded from El Jefe (who is on holiday in Florida, I believe) forwarded from his (potential?) client who said he really liked the editorial suggestions I made to his manuscript and that if I had any more I ought to send them along as soon as possible. I had been led to believe that I would have little or no interaction with agents because the intern assists the assistant, but I have been rather fortunate to have the head honcho of this literary agency take an interest in me. El Jefe is adorable; he refers to me (in writing) as “Jay Jay.” (La Junior Agent for the first few days called me “Jo-Jo.” Perhaps I ought to give up and go back to being called “Sarah.” Ew, just looking at that name makes me shudder.) I have a self-pubbed memoir to read and report on when he comes back. I have read the first 5 pages. The answer is no.
LOST this season is a bit uneven. Last week’s episode was amazing; this week’s was less so. The plot moved forward an inch. Another plothole appeared. It’s really bothering me that Sun is the only one of the Oceanic Six to not have flashed back to 1977. This seems to be a hole in the worldbuilding, which I cannot forgive. I can understand Ben and Locke not being flashed back; they turned the donkey wheel and moved/fixed the Island. There is an intuitive leap there. But Sun? Why was she excluded? Also, I am liking her less and less as the series goes on, not that I liked her much in the first place. Another thing that annoys me a little: her name is not just “Sun.” It’s Sun-Hwa. Jin’s name is Jin-Soo. Korean names consist of two syllables! …except mine of course. But I am a speshul and yooneek snowflake.
Also, Ben’s creeptastic potential was significantly decreased in this past episode. Where is my crazy bug-eyed evil weasel? (His younger counterpart is sufficiently scary and bug-eyed too, but Sterling Beaumont is no Michael Emerson.) Oh Benry, I love you!
Revisions have been going, which is a miracle in my case. Going ever so slowly, but going. Kickstarting my diet has been going well too. Lost 2lbs since yesterday. I am waiting for Fresh Direct to deliver me my produce so I can make a salad for dinner. I anticipate avocados eagerly.
I am shallow and frivolous. Carry on.
