I am back and I promise not to get all mushy until later... Much later. Like next week or something.
To all the gals who sent good wishes my way after my mental breakdown, I LOVE YOU. I really did need that little push there. Jackie, (*hugs*) you are the best. A girlfriend like you is priceless. Camilla, you are a darling. I wish we were around to keep you company. You have to provide all things chocolate though. ;)
I just want to embrace the fact that it is FRIDAY! WOOT! I cannot believe I am so happy about it. This is the only weekend the hubster and I get to tinker in the house. BIL needs help moving and we promised him 2 hours of our precious time. The garden needs last minute tending to before everything settles in for winter. The playset needs some staining. I still have to lay the weed blanket down so the annoying plants won't grow back next spring. I know, I know, y'all don't care but I told you all, I have NO time to myself (or the house). Next week, we're off to Florida for a wedding. The weekend after that, I will be working. Surprise, Thanksgiving is just around the corner!
ATTENTION: This section is reserved for station ranting...
Is anyone upset that Christmas decorations are already in full swing in the malls? I am truly appalled. There should be a law that Christmas decor should not be put up AFTER Thanksgiving. Sheesh, it's not like we'll spend any more or less on Christmas presents if they started decorating in June.
BACK TO YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED GABBERY
First and foremost, bad news. Amy finally handed me MNT 14. I fixed all the deets Ames nicely highlighted for me (hugs, my dear friend) and got it ready for posting... Only to find out that FF.net is DOWN... AGAIN.
Ugh! How can I get my readers to read my story? I remember when I had written "Meatmarket" and FF was down for like 3 days and I emailed everyone who had personally corresponded with me if they wanted a preview of the Meatmarket chappie. They did and got back about 17 reviews, not including the reviews posted on FF when I finally got the chappie out. I want my story out. It's almost done. Can't wait for closure.
Second, I've decided to write my own challenge. Elaida was supposed to write my challenge but I guess with Seasonal Passions shutting down, she decided not to continue with it. I don't have the guts to ask her to write it so I decided to just do a self-challenge. I might preview it on Build-A-Fic when we finally get the site up. Ladies, when do you think would be a good time to sit and chat about BIF?
On a lighter note, Lindsay gave me first dibs on her Seasonal Passions challenge. Not to steal her thunder or anything but IT IS GOOD. Snarky good. Tension-filled good. I am giddy in anticipation since the build up is so yummy. So, Lindsay, here's how much I love you. I promise to read your drafts before I read my school stuff... Ames, I promise I will read PP... eventually. So don't start sulking! (Love ya, babe.)
Third, Jackie wants to start the book club. Yay!!! Amy's on board, I'm on board... K? Who wants first dibs? And yes, "Can You Keep A Secret" by SK is deliciously sinful. Love that book. I still have to catch "The Undomestic Goddess". I hope it's as good, if not better. I can't seem to really follow the Shopaholic series since, surprise, I am not one who does a ton of retail therapy. As for "Million Pieces" I might have to read that later.... so much later that PP should be read first, along with the other prequels before I read it later.
Lastly, Kristen Bell recalls being Punk'd by Ashton. She is so funny! Now if I could just catch this ep. I bet it would be hilarious.
And if you can't wait to see next week's VM, here's the first few minutes of the show.
Speaking of which, here are some yummy scenes to expect from VM. Thanks, Spoilerfix!
