In A Flurry


Why so crazed? …


Marcy stomps into the office where Cynthia is frazzled and intensely pressing computer keys.

Marcy: Where’s our blog post?

Cynthia: Leave me alooooone!

Marcy: No! We have a brand new website and not a single new post in over a week!

Cynthia: I knooooow!

Marcy: What gives?

Cynthia (somewhat hysterically): What gives?! What gives, you ask?! What gives?!

Marcy: I’m asking!

Cynthia (dramatically): This is what gives –

I’m presently reformatting over 250 of YOUR posts from BlogSpot over to WordPress. Plus, correcting links and figuring out HTML and more!

I am working on a new play for the Hollywood Fringe Festival in which I am acting, project managing, and creating the costumes that YOU are supposed to be helping me with. We open in a week.

I am in middle of a huge cat rescue mission that YOU are also definitely not helping with.

I am preparing for CatConLA on Saturday. We’re covering the cat fashion, you know.

Marcy:  Oh. Yeah. Sorry.

Cynthia:  We’ll get there, Marcy! It’s all good! Just give me a break.

Marcy: So what can I do?

Cynthia: Hmmm… Can you figure out HTML coding for me?

Marcy: Oh I know that already.

Cynthia(hopefully): Really?

Marcy: No problem.

Marcy scrambles up to the computer.

She confidently presses a few computer keys.

The computer screen goes blank.

Cynthia passes out.

Four hours later.


Marcy:  Wake up.

Cynthia (confused and groggy):  So it was all a dream?

Marcy:  No. But the computer screen is now a nice buzzy white instead of a scary gray.

Cynthia passes out again.

Marcy:  Stop fainting. We’ve got stuff to do.

Cynthia goes back to looking like the frazzled Mona Lisa parody photo above – bugged out eyes, electrocuted hair, and trying not to vomit.

Wish us luck!

    HAHA….too funny! I had repoint all my images too when I moved back to Blogger 🙁 Interestingly, I didn’t have to do it when I went to WP. Hmmm…Sounds like you’ve got a lot of exciting things going on…I can’t wait to hear about Cat Con! Good luck!

      Hi Merrie!
      I am so excited for CatCon! I wish you could be there! I will report back and will be snapping photos of all the people in their cat gear. Kinda like I did for the LA Feline Film Festival.
      I really am loving your new site!

    Oh, Cynthia!!! You are doing waaay too much. The cat rescue is so emotional and the HTML is so impossible and Marcy is making things worse. I don’t blame you for passing out. In a few weeks you’ll look back on this and feel very proud of your accomplishments.

      Don’t worry! I’m fine, really! Marcy stepped on a few more keys and brought back my site.

      because i am so awesome like that

    Oh noooooo!!!
    That sounds so overwhelming!
    Even if NOTHING else were going on, having computer issues = so aggravating, it amps up the suckage factor of everyday life to the power of infinity.

    Some thoughts:
    The show is going to come together. Don’t worry about that, k?
    I’m afraid my html skills are stuck at basic, but I think we can do something about helping you with your next blog post (the post/idea we talked about the other day when heading to rehearsal… )

    Marcy, Spike’s gonna come kick your ass if you don’t cut it out!!

    Screw the Tango.
    We need wine.
    The economy size.

    Hang in there with Spike & me,

    PS – There’s cat fashion??? Why don’t I know about this?????

    HOLY BATMAN, talk about burning your candle in both ends?! I mean, your candle must be looking more like a Christ-joint *than an actual candle at this point? I’m wishing you SO MUCH GOOD LUCK with all of this!! Especially the play, I wish I could come support you but I will be there in spirit, astral projection style. YOU WILL BE FINE! 🙂

    *See the Pineapple Express movie if you don’t know what I mean by Christ-joint. You know, when you have time. 😉

      Thank you, Gwen!!!!

      Someday we will get to see each others shows. I am going to watch the Pineapple Express so I understand your reference. In three weeks.

    Yowza! Marcy better star pulling her weight. I bet P-Kitty can help

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch June 2, 2015 at 1:12 am

      PKitty is acting like a diva so she is no help. I am spilling the beans here but she made the cut and will be featured in Studio Goldsparkle’s book All Black Cats Are Not Alike. meowza!

    OMG girl, look at you and all the stuff you are involved with! Hope you got some REM waves during your fainting episodes. I don’t even know what HMwhatever is, so I am way impressed. The play and rescue kitties are fortunate to have you with them, and what are YOU wearing to CatCom?

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch June 2, 2015 at 4:54 am

      Thanks, Vik!

      I can’t decide! Definitely my Marcy tee. I may just do what I did at the LA Feline Film Festival and wear jeans and be comfy since I’ll be running up to vendors and participants all day or I could wear the Marcy tee with a cute skirt? Hmmmm… decisions decisions! lol


  • Reply Vik June 2, 2015 at 6:23 pm

    And what about your saddle shoes (I forget if they are comfy enough though) with cat faces stuck on them?

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch June 2, 2015 at 11:08 pm

      Oh My Gato! That is brilliant! They are very uncomfortable but that idea is so good I may have to pick awesome over comfort! Thank you!!!

  • Reply Liana June 3, 2015 at 4:17 pm

    Wow. Busy lady! You’re involved in so many awesome projects!

    I am down to one post every 10 days or so, so can’t really offer any advice.

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch June 3, 2015 at 5:07 pm

      But they’re great posts!!!!

  • Reply Liz June 5, 2015 at 3:41 pm

    LOL. HTML kills me. Thank goodness Kyle is a programmer, but getting him to sit down and help me is no easy task. So I’d say he’s about as effective as Marcy.

    At least you have lots of fun things on the horizon! I know the struggle with transferring over your blog and fixing links. It got to the point where once I’d gone back a few weeks to correct things, I cut my losses for anything older than that. It kills me to know I have these detailed travel posts with corrupt photos and links. Maybe I’ll just redo them on the anniversary of particular trips.

    <3 Liz

      Isn’t it just so endless?! I have about 15 that need HTML help and the ones with videos need some work too! The good news is that I’m not panicking about it anymore!
