  1. Today was a big day for me, as I turned the big 5-0 :unsure:  I spent the afternoon with my family, which is the first time we've gotten together since COVID started. It was great to see everyone.  We had good food, good conversation, and perfect weather.  I can't think of a better way to start the second half of my life :) 💖

  2. I think my bathroom pets are messing with me.  :unsure:  I can't find my pajama bottoms I wore last night.  They're not in the laundry... they're not with my clean clothes... or on any of my too-lazy-to-put-them-away spots.  How the h-e-double hockey sticks do you lose a pair of pants when you're totally sober?  :facepalm: I'm totally blaming the bathroom pets and not my addled brain.  Or maybe the cats got bored... :facepalm:

      If you haven't checked the freezer, have you really looked? It's right there next to the frozen banana guacamole.

  3. So exciting - my Padres have their first ever no hitter! And since I sprung for the MLB.tv package, i actually saw it all!

      I follow the Mariners in a half-assed way because they have Nick Margevicous (I know I spelled that wrong) and I really liked him when he was with the Padres for his rookie year. I like the Cardinals in the east, but I was bo0rn in SD so I back my Padres first 🙂

      One of these days I'll have to write something for an anthology again. How many have you written for this one, Val?

  8. I just got home from a five hour ER visit.  I've been sick for the past two weeks with a high fever.  I was tested twice for COVID and it was negative both times, so my doc sent me to the ER for a workup, since no one will see me for testing since I have a fever.  Thankfully there's nothing major wrong.  I'm feeling much better after getting some fluids into me and very relieved to know I'm finally on the mend.  Now I'm going to collapse into bed.  :sleep:

      Feel better, dear - plenty of rest and chicken soup!

  9. My editor has completed his first pass through A Perfect Confluence of Events and I should have it back next week, I hope. It's exceptionally long for me, and very different from my most recent effort, Corners. I look forward to sharing!

  10. My normal grocery shopping day is Saturday am.  I go early, like 7-7:30ish to avoid the crowds, because I hate crowds.  I figured it would be busier than usual today, so I went at 6:30 am.  :blink: The parking lot was full, so scratch that idea.  Despite restocking overnight, there was not much meat left.  Same with canned goods, soups, etc.  There was toilet paper, but not much lol  I did buy a six pack (about six of those is all that was left) but don't judge me... I needed toilet paper!  Every register was open, and every single line was to the back of the store.  It took a little over an hour to get to the register.  I have to say, everyone was really nice, despite the situation.  Hopefully the frenzy will die down soon and the stores can properly restock.

      We went out a bit yesterday and stocked up some today because school closures were a matter of time, we felt. Having three teen/tweens at home makes for a large food bill anyway, but home full time is even more. The stores were wiped out of paper products and the only meats left were higher end beef items. Bread was wiped out, soups...it was like seeing The Stand at the beginning.

      I do understand stocking up a bit - if you get quarantined you still need TP and can't shop. They have said to have two weeks worth of supplies on hand, but people are hoarding instead - and worse. The NYT had an article today about some twit who bought 17k+ hand sanitisers and then was galled to not be allowed to gouge people via Amazon and Ebay.

  12. I'm in Syracuse for the weekend, visiting friends. We had a nice dinner tonight at the Cheesecake Factory.  The leaves are just starting to turn, so it was a very pretty drive.

  15. In the past week, we've had a blizzard with record-setting temps and snowfall amounts that shut the area down for two days, record-setting warmth, and now an ice storm.  O.o

  16. I don't know how that 'Top Stories' thing gets calculated, but it's a boost to the ego to see one of your stories there 😀

      I have to figure that out. It was only supposed to change for a line. Myr gave me some suggestions, and I'll try to adjust it. In the meantime you can read it here: http://www.dabeagle.com/stories/dabeagle/ouroboros/ouroboros.html

  18. Today was my first day back to work after a six week medical leave.  It was a short, but busy day, and I'm exhausted.  My individuals were all happy to see me and it was nice seeing them, too :) I dropped my car off at the shop and it passed inspection, plus the scraping noise turned out to be a minimal repair.  Best part of the day... listening to a group of my individuals howling along with Werewolves of London :whistle: 🐺

      I play Werewolves in the car with the boys. The like it when I grab them on the chest when the line goes He'll rip your lungs out, Jim! You can see them getting ready, anticipating the little scare when I do it.

      I'm busy hugging my own - was in the emergency vet all night Thursday with the Italian Greyhound. Ugh. And how are you doing? How is the recovery?
