Cloudy and cold
Today is the Breeders’ Cup and I haven’t handicapped it. Oops.
I have my November To-Do list up on the Goals, Dreams, and Resolutions site. I’m working on next year’s questions.
I am deeply saddened by the tragedy at Ft. Hood. My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the dead and injured.
Yesterday, my nerves were shot be midmorning, between the lack of heat and the noise outside. I was happy to pack up and head out in the afternoon. I didn’t get any work done, but I managed to have some relaxation time, and I also got 4 loads of laundry done!
Lazy night. I watched part of SANCTUARY and part of WHITE COLLAR, which meant I didn’t really follow either story too closely. I love Tim DeKay’s work on WHITE COLLAR — his extensive experience working in theatre serves him well here — he’s got a lot of nuances. In SANCTUARY, there was some sort of post-apocalyptic storyline and they put Robin Dunne in a mullet and a tank top for the Rambo reference. It was kind of funny — and I’m not entirely sure it was meant to be funny — but I kind of wish the design for his look had been a little more unique.
Some dates are changing in my site work the next couple of months. On a time/work level, it takes some of the pressure off, but on a financial level, it means less money.
Brandy, yesterday’s picture was taken up in Maine — I like it, too. I’m going to pass on the party in Lenox today because it’s driving 2 1/2 hours in each direction for a party based around wine-tasting — since I can’t stay overnight up there, and if I was going to have to get on the road, I couldn’t really enjoy the wine — I’m going to skip a 5 hour round trip.
Hitting the page early. I need to get a lot done on “Digging”, the short story today. It’s in the high 20’s outside — hopefully they’ll keep the heat on at least for a little while. I may do some errands later, or I may just stay in and keep writing, if it’s going well.
