The place to find nothing exciting, happening all the time!

Stars and Stripes With Cats and Dogs July 4, 2008

Whew have I been busy! Getting a new HDTV, redoing the living room with four floor to ceiling bookcases, moving the two smaller bookcases that were in there up to my bedroom (read: closet), filling said bookcases with several of the many boxes of books I have in my room, rearranging my room so everything fits…Lets just say I’ve had my hands full.

As an update, Stargate Thursdays floundered a bit as Stargate Wednesdays as well, but we finally finished season one last night! Whoohoo! Only 193 episodes to go! That comment sure made my friends’ faces fall. And then I added, “And two movies!” Because long before we get there, Stargate Continuum will be out and I will OWN it!

Well to all of you who live in the US of A, today is Independence Day, and a happy day to you all! Having two cats and a dog, Fourth of July and New Years, and Memorial Day, and pretty much any other day people can make an excuse to shoot off fireworks, become a bit difficult. Luckily our animals aren’t too frightened of the noises. A dog we used to have had to be medicated every time otherwise she would get really panicky. It sucked. But anyway.

I’d also like to go back to the Stargate subject and say that I was very heartbroken on hearing the news on Monday of Don S. Davis’ death. I had been looking forward to seeing him at the Stargate convention I am planning on going to this August in Chicago. Sadly, this can no longer be. I think I speak for all Stargate fans when I say, we will all miss him very much. As others have said before me, Hammond of Texas has fallen in battle.

And on a happier tone, I have been booking along with my sequel to A Tangled Green, I just posted my eighth chapter. These chapters are coming much slower, and I have been told that my sequel is, to put it mildly, a bit more dry than the previous one, but hopefully the past two chapters, and all the upcoming chapters, will lay these thoughts in the dust. I admit, the setup was a bit dull, but it had to be done. Now the real excitement comes! Anywho, stop over and read it if you like, its on the sidebar.

Didn’t do much special for Independence Day, no cookout, no fireworks, just us sitting around the house doing our own little things, as usual. Kind of like four people living on the same floor of an apartment building, instead of four blood relations living in the same house. But hey, life’s life.

And talking about life (as if I talk about anything else), I’ve been having some major problems at work. For some reason, they haven’t put me on the schedule for almost a month, and I was counting on the money working full time this summer to go back to school and to pay for expenses for my trip. Now I’m frantically trying to find a new job, and figure out what the heck is going on with the one I have. Aren’t they supposed to tell you when they fire you? Oh well, we’ll see.

Anyway, think I’ve caught up with most of what’s been going on, hoping to get back to regular postings now. But again, like a weather report…I wouldn’t skip the umbrella if I saw dark clouds, no matter what the weatherman says (or in reverse, I wouldn’t count on it raining everyday, like they say). Wait, that wasn’t what you were expecting? Okay, let me rephrase that. Like a weather report…DON’T COUNT ON IT!
