Waiting is a special hell.

So yeah. Waiting for the phone call.

Waiting.

I keep looking at the phone, trying to coax a ring out of it. Nothing. Maybe if I wiggle my eyebrows. No? How about if I bug my eyes out? Nothing? I could try a Samuel Jackson on it.

"I want this motherfucking phone to motherfucking RING!"

No? Too last week?

Maybe it's not working. What if my phone is broken and they try to call?

"Wow, his phone doesn't work. How rude! Screw this guy."

What if I pick it up to check, and that's the moment they call? What if they get my voice mail and say, "Wow, he's busy. He's not going to have the time to devote to us. Let's call Dan Brown and see if he's got lunch plans."

Okay, I checked. Dial tone.

I wonder if they tried to call just now when I did that?

Yeah. I'm a little nervous.

Tee hee - hope the phone has rung by now....waiting is the worst.

As soon as you get the call, you better get on here and tell these total strangers all the details of your life because, you know, we're waiting.

And not very patiently, I might add.

ah, who's interested in Rob's success anyhow?

Oh, that's right - WE ARE!!!!!!

spill!

You sound like me after every first date I ever had.

Hope it rings soon; if not, he's a loser and you're too good for him anyway. Or something like that.

Business hours are over already! Anything? Anything at all?!

Things are afoot. Can't say what just yet, but soon.

I'll say this much: I think I know how it felt being the hot chick at the prom now. I just hope that whoever ends up taking me home doesn't leave me passed out in the back seat with puke in my hair.

Things are very positive right now, I will say that much. I may post an entry tonight talking in general terms about this, since I guess it's just the details I can't really divulge yet.

Whatever your good news is, I'm sure you deserve it, have worked hard for it. What's about to happen seems like the natural next step. Hope it's whatever you want it to be.

Good luck sorting everything out!

You are a torture device yourself! Don't tell us about "Waiting being a special Hell"
What's GOING ON??

Robert Hudson said...

If I have to be patient and not call my agent every ten minutes like I want to, then you're going to have to wait, too.

Sophia Seraphina said...

Is it strange of me to want to clean the buttons on that phone?

Hope everything works out just as you want it.

Im waiting just like everyone else, but patience isnt one of my strong points!

Ugh! It's been TWO days! We're dying here!

Yeah, welcome to my World of Anxiety.

Pammy Sue said...

I can't believe you'd do this to me. You're right. It IS the most annoying kind of entry. Tell us something, even it it's that you don't know anything yet. Gah!

Robert Hudson said...

Stay tuned, things are in motion this morning...

I'm so bad at waiting. I'm so bad at waiting, in fact, that I'm also so bad at waiting for other people who are bad at waiting.

NEWS, man, we want NEWS. :-)

Seriously, good luck with whatever's going on....

Dude, I am keeping SO many assorted phalanges crossed for you, it's actually hard to walk, much less type. So, will you remember all the Little People when you're famous?
