Slow Day

It's a nice slow day today. I did some cleaning of my room but there's still much to be done. I had a nice 8 hours of sleep last night which only happens about twice a week so I am somewhat refreshed.

I just wonder what I am doing to myself as I started yet another fic as I push others to the back as I work on this till it stalls and move back to the others. "What is it this time?" you ask. My first "real" Psych fic as the previous was just a little bit of a throwaway. (If there is anyone around who cares to help me flesh it out a bit, let me know.)

Because of this, we'll only be taking in 2 games instead of the regular 3.

To get my Tennant fix, I've begun to listen to some of his audiobooks that I've had sitting in iTunes for months. Right now it's The Merlin Conspiracy by Diana Wynne Jones. It takes place in an alternate world (well, a number of them) where magic exists. It's told by two different point of view and David narrates one. I just love his voice and the favorites for me so far are Hyde (when drunk) and Minnie the Elephant.

Oh for the Firefly fans, I was watching The Mentalist Thursday and our own Sean Maher was on! "It's Simon!" I cried.

It now feels like Florida again these past few days. Palm Beach County actually set a record with the most consecutive days with temperatures under 45 (11). It's mid 70s now but overcast with on-and-off showers.

It's been 6 months of 7am mornings for work and it's hard to make myself stay up till 11! I used to go to bed around midnight all the time now it's strange territory.

I've been re-watching Supernatural, sparked by some fic I was reading. Talk is that this might be the last season and I wonder how they will end it. Will one die? Both? A happy ending where they give up hunting or will they just pick up and keep going? So many ways to go with that.

24 starts up tomorrow! Can't wait.

I've actually been making myself work on the stitching for at least an hour a day so I can see some progress being made.

As for the writing, I'm juggling between two fanfics now, the latest DW on the back burner.

Spring Training tickets go on sale next Saturday!

Top Story: They say it'll be in the low 30s tomorrow when I head for work at 6:30. I had to drag out the gloves and scarf though I'm not sure if I'll need them both. I've had the Irish knit out all week. I haven't checked the news recently but they said there's a chance of snow just a couple couties north in Vero Beach and Melbourne.

Entertainment News: The reign of Ten is over. I'm still a little sad but yet I'm looking forward to Eleven. All the tv shows are starting back up after mid-season hiatus or (in the case of 24) starting new seasons. The recorder will have to be programmed again.

Nothing else earth-shattering as my life is a smidge on the dull side. The countdown to the Buble concert has started, though. Two months from tomorrow!

Kinda hard to believe it's down to a week. At work they are playing the same Christmas CDs over and over and most of the versions aren't even that decent. They told me earlier I could make a CD and bring it in. I do and now they say they can't play it. One of the managers told me he likes mind better than the bought ones. One thing that bugs me (and has every year), who was the first to put "My Favorite Things" on a Christmas album when it has nothing to do about the holiday? I feel myself gritting my teeth whenever it comes on.

I think tomorrow will be for cleaning and wrapping presents and Sunday will be cheesecake day. Monday after work I'll make my spice cake to take in on Tuesday. It always disappears quickly. Oh, and I also have to write cards for people at work. Can't forget them.

Hard to believe. Yes, I got my shopping done and I mailed my first batch of cards but I still have to wrap the presents. One needs to be shipped north so that will try to be done tomorrow when I'm out running errands. I plan to go to Borders to pick up DWM and hopefully some decent Christmas albums for work because some of the ones they have are horrible and they need to be "store bought" so there go the mixes I was told I could make (and told were better than the bought). I also need to pick up something for my Mom. She doesn't like getting presents so if I get her something for the house, it might go over a little better. I also need to pick up a cheesecake pan and check my ingredients for the upcoming baking.

Ooh, is anyone else enjoying all these clips and trailers for End of Time? I can't wait though I know the timing of watching it will be delayed with dinner and whatnot. Oh, and Hamlet on Boxing Day? Damn, I so can't wait.

Yep, just bought tickets to see Michael Buble in Orlando next March. Upper level but I was not about to pay over $300 (3 tickets) around Christmas so I hope my friends can deal with it. We missed him last time around to miscommunication so $50 a pop is better than $90 to my mind.

I was thinkiing about hitting the shops today as I still need presents for my brother and his family. They'll be little things but I really haven't figured out what. Howevver as it is almost 11and I haven't changed out of the PJs yet, I think shopping will be Sunday. I will make an attempt to work on cleaning my room and make it look somewhat presentable for company.

Oh, then there's the baking I plan to do. Every year I make a spice cake for work from a recipe and friend of my mom's gave her ages ago. It's always a big hit. Then I was thinking I might try the cheesecake I made last year for Thanksgiving for Christmas as there will be enough mouths to gobble it down. Or I might try a recipe for a 3-layer apple cake that I saw on TV. What do you think?

Writing and stitching still both progressing slowly.

At least in the stores. I never understood why anyone would want to shop at 4am. Seriously, I hate shopping and I hate mornings so really, doesn't make sense to me. I might go up to Target tomorrow because they have Psych season 2&3 DVDs for $12.99. As for presents, I need to do a bit more research for my brother and his family who will be down. I really don't know what they like, plus it needs to be small since they're flying.

Thanksgiving was quiet. I tried to watch the Macy's parade but I couldn't get into it for some reason. As dinner was only four of us, we did chicken instead of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and green beans. My brother flew down from CT and he got in around 4:30 so we had dinner regular time. We played 3 games of pinochle and my brother and I beat Mom and Dad 3-0.

My brother then said he was ready to watch Life on Mars which made me happy. He had seen the US version but agreed with the rest of the world that the original is loads better. He liked John and Phil's acting and the Sam/Gene dynamic which was so missing in the remake. This morning he told me he wanted to take in some more.

First off, watched Waters of Mars Sunday and it was phenomenal. I know I'll watch a few more times before Christmas and The End of Time.

Things here are progressing slowly with writing and stitching. Seems I really have to force myself to do anything. I already have plot beginnings for other stories floating in my head. Next week is a 4 day work week because of Thanksgiving so it's Sunday through Wednesday. My brother comes down Thursday afternoon and leaves Saturday morning so everything works out well. As he expressed an interest but (i assume) never got around to it, I'll see if I can sit him down to watch some Life on Mars.

Friday the 13th, so far so good. The weather is nice down here (low to mid 70s) and I actually went out and walked for the first time in months. I might even attempt to make a start on cleaning out my closet--or at least straightening out the stuff I just throw in there.

I'm feeling very pleased with the progress of my original fic. I just need to create some planet names and wait on a fight scene that I contracted out. WHen I feel it's ready, I'll send to my beta who recommended the changes.

I did get some stitching done and it's back in the scroll frame. (I had it in a hoop for the edges.) With today and tomorrow off, I should get some done.

Well, today was planned to be productive, clean and dust my room but so far, nothing. I did strip the bed and washed the sheets but I do that every week. No, I think I will actually have to turn off the computer and try to work. To that end, I'm posting now.

My writing is coming along well. My one original fic that needed an overhaul is well on its way to completion. Maybe a few more scenes. I actually wrote a short fic for Psych, my first, which I am rather pleased with as it got some nice reviews.

My stitching, well, that's moving a bit slower. I will try to make myself work on it later this afternoon when I watch the Legend of the Seeker marathon I taped last night.

I apologize for the delayed entry. I was talking with Co this morning and she told me that I need to do other posts, not just my quiz. I do, sometimes when there are topics that intrigue me or I want to share something. Right now, I've just been forgetting to post even the quiz so bear with me if it tends to be the same-old, same-old.

Anyway, my sister "George" (on the Weasley scale) is having a landmark birthday in a couple weeks and I've been working on a CD compilation which is always fun to piece together. Just the other day my brother-in-law said he'd like to do a surprise party, mainly just family, so I began looking at flights and no matter how I cut it, it would be $300 for the weekend. Really can't afford that now, especially with the new car payments. I'll send the CDs to "Fred", the responsible sister, and she can take it along to the party. I just want many pictures to be taken and shared.

The stitching, well, let's just say I haven't been working on it as much as I would like. The writing is coming along and soon I'll be able to merge the two parts together and rewrk the end a bit. If anyone is good at choreographing fight scenes, I need one done and I promise to give credit!

While Dad stayed with the car (totalled btw) my mom and my aunt were "escorted" to the church in the ambulance. They were fine the next day and went out the breakfast as usual. Monday they used my car and drove all over getting papers signed etc. They rented a Chevy Malibu from Enterprise and today the bought a new (used) car: a 2006 Toyota Camry which is just a newer model of the car they lost.

I hear thunder all around and the sky is getting dark so I guess I'd better post before the power goes.

I did mean to post yesterday but I got caught up in a book. Strange, I know. Anyway, I've been caught up in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Yes, it's a bit of a Potter knock-off but only in the fact that the boy is young (12) with special talents, instead of a school, he goes to a summer camp where they are divided into cabins instead of houses, and his two best friends are a boy and girl. I think if look at it on its own merits, it's fun. Plus, I've always loved mythology, esp Greek. I think I was in 3rd grade when I discovered my sister's copy of Edith Hamilton's Mythology. I found the first book when I was in MD and I was in a book crisis. I didn't read it until a few weeks after I got home, having forgotten I had it. They've already made a film of the first novel and I think it'll be out later in the year. I'm just lloking forward to seeing Pierce Brosnan as a centaur. :) I did find some of the books online so if you want to try that route....

Both the writing and stitching are movong along slowly. I plan to get some more done while I watch Andy Roddick tonight.
