Okay, this is ridiculous. I have my winter slippers on - the ones that are like boots. It's the first time my ankles have been warm all day. It's going down to the low 50s overnight, if not lower. And it's still freakin' AUGUST, people! AUGUST!

On the up side, however, I did finally get myself a new mouse today. I loved my old one. I'd had it for... oh hell, probably 5 years? A Logitech wireless. But it finally gave up the ghost. I couldn't click and drag, nor could I highlight a piece of text any longer without trying for 50 times - and that's not a lie! So I got a new one, and it's SO pretty. Baby blue with lilies on it. If you're curious, it's here. And the best thing? I only paid $30 for it! Bargoon!!

I worked some more on my epic today. Chapter 8 is finished!! Whoo hooo! I may even get a start on Chapter 9 tonight. The past 3 weeks have seen me writing almost every day/night and it feels wonderful! Kudos have to go out to [livejournal.com profile] cobrasnaps who regularly gets out the pom poms to cheer me on and, of course, to [livejournal.com profile] joolz82253 who keeps begging for more. They're both great motivators and every little bit helps!

I got to chat with [livejournal.com profile] tasyfa on the IM today and that made me a happy camper. I've missed our chats.

Then there was this that made the fangurl in me squee ... well, like a fangurl.



James is sitting ON LARS' KNEE! I mean, seriously, have you ever seen such a thing??? Oh, and the other fellows? They're a German band called Die Toten Hosen which I'm told means The Dead Pants. ROTFL!! Thank you, Trinny!!! Made my day!

Tomorrow is the big Nascar Nationwide race here in Montreal. Big doin's around here, ya know. I'll be watching on the tube, of course, cheering on local boy Patrick Carpentier. It's supposed to rain, but I think, if it's not too bad, they'll just haul out the rain tires and the race goes on!

And that's about it for the view from here. I'm wishing all my flisties a LOVELY weekend!

ROTFL!!!

Well, I'm sure James has been on top of Lars many times, so he should know. *wink*

And Lars has his arm around James no less, lol!

Die Toten Hosen are one of the most popular German punk bands. Pretty good stuff too. Funny I recognized Campino (the singer) before I recognized any of the Met boys, and thought, hey Ev is getting into German punk! :D

You noticed that too, eh? Heehee! It's so cool that they're being more affectionate towards each other these days. Does my little fangurl heart good. *grin*

I have to tell you, I near spewed my coffee when Trinny told me what Die Toten Hosen meant in English. Heehee! It's a GREAT name!

Actually "Tote Hose" is a common phrase which means as much as "nothing's happening", figuratively but also literally. If you're at a boring party where nobody's having fun, you would say "hier ist tote Hose" - "here is dead pants", let's go someplace else. :D

N'awwwww! That's really cute.

Hee. Out of curiosity, which NASCAR race would you prefer to go to given the choice, Montreal or Watkin's Glen? Or is there another you'd pick?

Warmed my heart, it did. *grin*

Which race? Well as it stands now, Watkin's Glen seeing as it's a Cup race of course. All things being equal (ie: Both courses showcasing the same series, be it Cup or Nationwide) I think maybe Watkin's Glen would edge out, just barely, and that's probably because of a hometown girl's disdain for the local.

Now, if you're asking me where I would go for a Cup race? Hmmm.... well... Talladega would win I think. Edging out the Bristol Night Race, Daytona and maybe Martinsville. I LOVE the short tracks like Bristol and Martinsville for all the bumping and banging. *grin* And I mean... Daytona IS racing right? But Talladega - man, that place captured my imagination from the get-go.

I am kind of charmed by James cheesy rockstar pose, not gonna lie.

ALSO even in my LET'S TOUCH EACH OTHER AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY HOW DARE YOU GO OUT OF ARM'S REACH grabbyhands Jonas Brothers fandom lap-sitting is not something that happens often. LARS AND JAMES, so subtle <3

That cheesiness is part of the Hetfield charm! *LOL* And you know, Hec, there's PLENTY of reasons they call it the Metallica Train. Subtlety? *snort* PUH-LEESE!!

I have to say, this pic warms my heart totally!

I have to say I'm mightily pleased with that picture. It's about seven kinds of loveliness, lol. Thanks for sharing!

Have a great weekend, your own self.

Seven kinds of loveliness? Oh, you betcha!!! *happy grin*
