So I lied. Yup, I'm a big, fat liar. I told you Rock The Kasbah would end at the end of summer. I had really great intentions. I was going to go out with a big blockbuster ending. A music video to the song Rock the Casbah by The Clash. It would have started with me rolling up to an oil field in a convertible Cadillac with a sword balancing on my head wearing roller skates with the kids in the back dressed like sheiks. Craig would be Joe Strummer on the guitar, of course. This is the point that the jets would come from overhead and bomb us. And then we'd all start dancing. I'd be pole dancing on the oil drill bit. That was probably obvious though. This all might be a bit too expensive though. And let's face it, Sharif wouldn't like it.
Don't get me wrong. I totally intended to end it. I mean I would have started a new blog in it's stead and everything. But one that had a more Colorado title. So it wouldn't confuse people. And maybe I'll still do that at some point. Right now though, I've moved on to other projects.
Continuing belly dance.
And starting pole dance.
Unpacking all the boxes we got from Morocco.
Keeping up with the homework and all the nagging having four kids entails.
Fixing our house that is sinking into the ground.
And, this week I officially started writing Rock The Kasbah, the book.
This probably wasn't the best week to decide to start. I still have all these moving boxes to contend with. I have a pulled muscle in my forearm from pole dancing that makes it uncomfortable to type. Oh, and there has been a jackhammer in my backyard for the last two days to help fix the problem that our home. Do you know how hard it is to concentrate on writing when a jackhammer constantly reminds you may soon be homeless. But the fun part is guessing whether we'll lose the house because it disappears into the earth or from the debt we'll go into to fix it. So, it's been a real slow start on the book. But, it's so gonna be worth the wait. It's gonna have some awesome pyrotechnics.
Did I mention I'm a big, fat liar?
(It occurs to me if you're not familiar with the song Rock the Casbah by The Clash or a regular reader here, the symbolism in the first paragraph might elude you. In which case, you need to rectify this situation immediately. After you've played the video. Then you could click "You might also like" and read another post. Unless you just want to wait to buy the book.)
