Film Scores and Goat Cheese Ghosts

I spent my workout day resting and focused instead on some stretching. No one wants to hear about that so let’s just get to the metrics.
Day 46/Day 2 PBJ – It’s not really a ghost. We have another chicken salad-wrapped crescent roll, sauteed asparagus and a Roma tomato with goat cheese and a roasted seaweed face. Some folks mistook the cheese for a happy-faced ghost and all I really wanted to do was give my cheese some character, but everyone seemed so happy with the idea there would be a ghost in my lunch, so I didn’t turn them around.
I started this evening’s word exercise without any idea in mind. I thought I had a few good ones at the office today, but apparently they weren’t good enough to write down and I promptly forgot them. I skimmed the interwebs for a few minutes and came across a handful which I jotted down to keep nearby for another time. With the prompt “He carried it with him everywhere”, I set my timer for 30 minutes and my goal for 1,005 words. I was rewarded 34 minutes later with pictures of kitties and Tibetan singing bowls, as well as 1,025 words of a nearly complete story.
Pandora nearly did me in, deciding to skip a few songs, cut off others and at one point inexplicably stop altogether. When I got everything restarted, I was treated to the Pirates of Caribbean Soundtracks – usually the go-to ambiance for writing, especially action scenes, but I was listening to Roy Orbison, and my mood was knocked sideways.
Yes, I plan on revisiting all of these stories at another time, and I’m a little excited that they’ll all be lovely and different.
