See you on the flipflop
Tomorrow, I will be on a plane to flohreedah. I just printed my boarding passes and checked-in. I LOVE online check-in!


I've got oodles to do before I go. I need to run the washer once, empty (or with rags in it) just in case there's rust in the line (I got my new HW heater yesterday!), do a load of laundry, put another coat of polish on me nails*, clear off my camera card, recharge some batteries, pack, watch Theatre of Blood with Michele (she couldn't make it last night), eat some food, etc., etc., etc. Thank heavens, I have lists; so, little actual brainpower is required (beyond choosing what to pack, which is a pain the butt).

Just another regular night in my world :) Tomorrow, I'll bring my bag with me to work, then head straight to the airport at 10:45a.

Squee! I'm so excited! I miss my boys so much!

In other news, the mysterious car noise which only I could hear has been heard by others and repaired :) It seems to have been the speedometer cable. Those nice guys did it free, too.

A - Act your age - My bio says I don't. Ever. I'd believe that, if I knew what age I really were.
B - Breast size - 34C
C - Chore you hate - Yes. Chores I hate. (Stolen not once, but twice!)
D - Dad's name - Sydney Cuthbert. Swear. To. G-d.
E - Essential make up item - moisturizer
F - Favorite actor - me?
G - Gold or silver - White Gold or Platinum
H - Hometown - I'm not sure I have one! Let's say Gainesville.
I - Instruments you play - A little bit of everything, but nothing of note.
J - Job title - Vice President and Wordsmith
K - Kids - Often. Oh. You mean progeny. One Almost Wicked Stepson, 14.
L - Living arrangements - Selling my bigass house to live in a shack in the jungles of Florida (until we get another place)
M - Mum's name - Marjorie Elizabeth.
N - Number of people you've kissed - Come closer, I'll tell you. Closer... cloooosssseerrrrrr...
O - Overnight hospital stays - Never, unless I stayed over just prior to my birth!
P - Phobia - I have nothing to fear but fear itself. But fear scares the living SHIT outta me.
Q - Quote you like - "blah, blah, blah" -me
R - Religious affiliation - "E: none of the above"
S - Siblings - One brother, 8 years my senior.
T - Time you wake up - 7:15am
V - Vegetable you refuse to eat - All of them. If they can't say OK, it's not consentual.
W - Worst habit - Procrastinating. Punning.
X - X-rays you've had - Zero. I've never dated anybody named Ray.
Y - Yummy food you make - go away. Yummy food I make go away :)
Z - Zodiac Sign - Gemini.

My vampire is on her Celerity 3 quest. For those who don't play, it's a longass quest in which you have three days to get to a specific pub, then three days to get to another, then another, for a total of twelve pubs. IT TAKES FOREVER (where forever equals thirty to thirty-six days). I was hoping I could finish it before my trip, but no. I'll have to do the last couple when I'm down there. C'est la mort!

Well, this is the last we'll see each other until I return next week; where I'm going you can't follow. What I've got to do you can't be any part of. I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy journal. Someday you'll understand that. Now, now . . . Here's looking at you, kids.


* Yes, Operation "Let's put a clear coat on the polish that got fscked up and see if that helps" was a dismal failure.
** This space intentionally left blank.

I'm feeling all kinds of: one two three, four five six, seven eight nine, ten eleven twelve!
What I hear: Sesame Street - Ladybug Picnic

Celerity's a pain in the butt, but it's definitely one of the most worthwhile powers!

Hooray hooray for Fla! When I move, we must make plans for a nice weekend visit sometime :) *huggos!*
