Today, it's still grey and looking like rain-ish, although according to local weather reports, we're not expecting any, nor are we expecting snow. This is a good thing. I can deal with grey skies, after all, it's only ONE WEEK until I leave for ConDor and San Diego. ::ignores tales of Escapade bound f'list::
The week's been busy with work stuff, some great (a project that's gone well); some not-so-great - we're losing our Director of IT and our tester.
Last night, I joined TKL and some other co-workers for T's hubby's b-day dinner at Lebanese Taverna, one of my favorite restaurants. A bottle of wine, a bunch of mezze later, I was one happy camper. S (T's hubby) invited me to join them in Thursday night gaming. Tempting as that may be, I'm passing, but reserving the ability to change my mind. I'm just afraid if I get caught up in this, it will be too easy to avoid writing. Plus, for me, Thursday is not the new Friday, because dudes, I'm too old to maintain at work the next day after a night of drunken debauchery and gaming. ::g::
Finished reading Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal
, by Christopher Moore
and am just over halfway through The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove
. My first exposure to Chris was via Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story
. If you haven't guessed already, he's a brilliant writer who combines wit, cleverness and humor with a rocking good story. I have all of his books, purchased at Creatures'n'Crooks in Richmond during one of my own book signings. That's the drawback to signings, you often end up spending way more than you should.
I had to buy a new cell phone yesterday - the freebie I got with my service crapped out on me. The salesperson was fabulous and helpful(!) - amazing thing that. I ended up with a Nokia model. Too many bells/whistles for me, as I don't really need all those extras, but it's impossible to buy just a plain phone anymore.
This weekend, I plan to pack for ConDor, because I'm anal that way. Other than that, I've got a couple of ideas floating in my head, not sure if they'll be short stories or novels or what, but I'll give them some room to grow and see what transpires.
If you're going to Escapade, enjoy, post often and make us
hate you jealous
live vicariously. If you're not going to Escapade, have a fabulous weekend.ETA: oh yeah, I'm operating on little to no sleep today - due to the idjit neighbor man (whom I've never seen) who's wife/SO/sister/mother/whomever he so fondly addressed as "Bitch" in the wee hours of the a.m. while pounding/kicking the door, locked him out. I know security came up several times and he finally stopped, but SHEESH!
