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 cobrasnaps who regularly gets out the pom poms to cheer me on and, of course, to joolz82253 who keeps begging for more. They're both great motivators and every little bit helps!
I got to chat with 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!
