Hi everyone who might care. I'm still around. I was away last week on a tiny island without a landline, never mind a computer. Even cell service was spotty and could drop just by shifting 1/2 an inch. My hubby finally took the kids and me to his little escape up in 1000 Islands. Its a wonderful place, but only if you don't mind the smell of fish and being completely surrounded by water. The island is only 3 1/2 acres with 3 guest cabins and the owner's cabin. Only way on and off is with small boats or swimming for it. I really loved it, but I have so much to catch up on now.......
Will post more later.
March should like me, after all I'm a March baby! But March has been really mean to me this year. First off, March came in with a fairly big snow storm. Enough snow, that we didn't have school. Not bad. But sometime during the night after the snow stopped, someone or something broke one of the side windows of my minivan. Now for most people, this would be a minor inconvenience. You call the insurance agent, he sends you to a window glass repair shop, you pay the deductible and life goes on. But not with my van. Nope, I have to have a very rare customized minivan. The company that did the original work, went out of business 10 years ago, so they are no help. And it seems no one else now carries the windows. So until my body shop can track down a window, I'm driving around with a taped up window.
Second, the gas company decided that the connections from the mains to each house had to be replaced. So for the first two weeks I've had to listen to non stop noise from jack hammers and back hoes. Not fun, not even including having to move my van every day to a different spot. Plus the day they did my house. They were traipsing in and out of my house for 3 hours. And then I had to let them into my brother's house. Wasted an entire day with them. They are mostly done with my street. But they have to come back in a week or two to repair the damage to the grass.
Then on Thursday evening, my hubby went to pick up a log. It had a thin branch attached that was stuck under another log. When he picked up the log, the branch whipped up and hit him in the eye. It messed up his eye pretty bad. We ended up spending 3 hours in an emergency clinic on friday morning. Thankfully the pupil was fine, but he had to wear a patch for two days and wasn't allowed to drive. His eye is still watery and light sensitive, but he says it doesn't hurt any more.
Please, March, ease up and let the next 2 weeks go smoothly!
This week I subbed every day. That's five long days spent away from my tv and computer. I don't know how I survived,LOL. Last Monday was a marathon of Dr Who on the SciFi channel. I am extremely happy to know that at least my DVR worked correctly and recorded each wonderful episode. Its something to tide me over until the Torchwood and Dr Who seasons start up on BBCAmerica in a few weeks. Sadly the other humanoids that dwell in this house are complaining that Dr Who is taking up too many of the limited hours alloted to our DVR. So I have to watch and delete....... (loud weeping heard off stage) Oh well, I guess they do have a point. But I'm getting my revenge. I'm deleting all Pokemon, SpongeBob and anything where the main character is under 21. HA! Make me delete my Doctor will they?
But on a positive side of subbing, I brought my notebook along and during my lunch breaks and when the monsters, err children were in gym/music/library I managed to add several pages to my never to be published Dr Who story. Maybe if I have to sub next week I'll get even more done.
subbing: slang term for substitute teaching aka risking life and limb so the classroom teacher can escape for the day
Frustration. Don't know why or what, but just an overall feeling of frustration.
At least I have been a good girl and been writing a bit. Its never going to be worth showing to anyone. But the whole point is to write it for me. If I can get it done, then maybe I can write one for other people to see.
But now I need to go find some 10fluff fic. Or is that 10fic fluff or fluff 10fic or.... yikes.
Anywho, yes I really do say anywho and have said it long before I discovered the world of the Dr. I have a neat (although perhaps graphic) idea on why the Dr has never shagged (God I love that word! Brits have the funniest expressions) Rose or any of his other companions. Has to do with evolution and compatibility. Time Lords can't mate with other species, heck they can barely manage to mate with other Time Lords. That's all I'm saying on that matter for now. Eventually I hope to write a story on how the Dr conquers this, or rather someone decides to conquer this problem and the Dr gets to benefit from the solution (hehe insane laughter)
