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!

So I'm watching the pre-race show. First they show Kyle Busch (AKA Little Prick) signing things for the fans before the race. He's scowling, not looking at the fans; his hand is just a machine moving over whatever the fan is holding out to be signed. Contrast that to Jeff Gordon who's moving down the line, smiling at the fans, exchanging a word or two; actually looking like he might be enjoying it - even if he's not.

And that is one of the big reasons people - like me - dislike Little Prick with a passion.

Go Tony!!! Go Jr!!!!

Go race, for that matter! *does a little stop the rain dance*
