Miscellany

Sorry. I hate writing these almost as much as I imagine you hate reading them, but I've got to catch up, you know:

1. I had the flu. It sucked. I am currently plugging away at a Tamiflu prescription, but I am pretty much totally mended. In the meantime, I watched a LOT of TV. On Friday, I watched a Dr. Who marathon on SyFy. (As a sidenote, why did they change their name? What is that, anyway, a pet name for Syphillis? It makes no sense. And I miss the commercials where the innocent looking little girl would unhinge her jaw and eat the mean looking man or the woman would hop out of her hummer-sized car and push a button and it would fold itself up and tuck itself into her tiny little handbag.) I love Dr. Who. Who doesn't? But I don't really keep up. I never seem to know when it's on or what's going on of if I'm watching a rerun or not. This had the cute Doctor and Martha.

2. On Saturday, there was nothing good on TV. I love a good marathon, I will watch almost anything in marathon format, but I couldn't find any. So, I made my own Firefly marathon. I didn't have time to watch the whole series, so I did my favorites. ("Serenity 1 and 2," "Jaynestown," "Out of Gas," "Heart of Gold" and Serenity if you are curious.) I watched part of Serenity with the Joss commentary on. I love that man. Anyway, he was talking about that first scene, where you are meeting the new villian and he forces that other man to fall on his sword and I was listening to his process and I thought, "I will never be able to write like that." I nearly threw away my NaNoWriMo novel, which, by the way, is not going to make it to 50,000 words. I am too far behind to catch up. But, I'm still writing, because I don't need to win. I need to write. But, I kept it because I don't care if it sucks. I just want to write it.

3. I hit a deer last night. Or, more accurately, a deer hit me last night. In the driver side door with his antlers down. Like he was challenging me to a dual. It was sort of ridiculous and now I have a very messed up car. I am very thankful however, that the girls and I are okay. Also, that I had discovered that I had inadvertantly let my car insurance lapse and reinstated it before the accident. This would be way worse if I was uninsured.

Sorry it's been so long since I posted. I promise to do better. Now that I'm well and all.

I hit a deer once. Almost totalled my car but luckily didn't get hurt. It's really scary though!

Glad to hear you all are ok :)

Uh..did I pass on the H1N1 virus to you electronically somehow? ;)

Seriously, glad you're feeling better. How are your babies??

I just finished my 7-day quarantine myself but doc sez I must be careful around the kids coz the virus is still in my respiratory tract for another week.

Scary thought -- that deer thing...

I missed you. Do you remember the age of the kamakazi deer in high school? I remember RMC talking about it.

OMG. SyFy as a pet name for syphillus...if I wake up in the middle of the night and start convulsing with laughter again, it will be your fault. Because, I mean, yeah, WTF was UP with changing it to that?!

Steph - This is why I blog. I told Bob that and he rolled his eyes. I'm so glad someone shares my sense of humor.
