Hey, everyone!

Happy Friday & weekend Eventides (and to everyone else as well!) [In reply to] Can't Post

I've had a fairly uneventful week, apart from my work computer dieing on me! Wink My weekend seems to be booked up of driving family around various parts of the country - how come they all decide to do something in the same weekend? I've got the short straw of being the taxi!Shocked

In more exciting news, immortality is nearly upon me! I have a very special and exciting announcement to make when I reach it! Laugh Exciting for me, anyway. Sadly, it doesn't involve The Hobbit, or Tolkien.

What plans do you have have Eventides?

Have a great weekend everyone. Smile

Greetings and felicitations [In reply to] Can't Post

Okay, that's Star Trek, not LotR, but it reminds me of the dwarves arriving on Bilbo's doorstep.

I'll take a quick shot of miruvor, please, Evey. It's been a rough week---a very dear friend of ours had a stroke last Sunday, and this was just a couple of weeks after his wife (also a dear friend, of course) had to have emergency surgery. She's hanging in there and he's doing amazingly well, considering, but it's still been horribly stressful for them. We're trying to do what we can to help.

We're anticipating a cold, rainy, cloudy front tomorrow which will drop the temperature here in North Texas by 30 degrees or so, from the 80s to the 50s. I just plugged in our electric fire, which hasn't been on since March, so it will be ready to go. It's just mock logs and a light, it doesn't actually throw off heat, but it makes the fireplace look pretty and homey without the mess of a real fire.

We're hoping for a quiet weekend before we get busy next week.

Hi DanielLB! [In reply to] Can't Post

Ack, not the computer! Glad you were able to get to Fiesta, though. :)

As for me, I don't really have much planned now that Doctor Who is done until Christmas, LOL-- I'll probably work on my website a bit. :)

*gets drink-of-choice* Hope you have a great (even if driving-filled ;D ) weekend!

I might catch up on some classic Doctor Who in the long wait. I always buy them on DVD but never watch them, so they've been on my list of things to watch for a long time.

Have a great weekend Eventides. Smile

Hiya, Evey! [In reply to] Can't Post

How's the weather in your area - and the trees? It is becoming sooo colorful here! This time of year is a "feast for the eyes".

I'll have just tea, please, with honey. My co-workers are all sniffling and coughing! Three-day weekend coming up (Columbus Day), so hopefully everyone will get plenty of rest.

Strange to be celebrating a guy for "discovering" a place which the natives already knew was here...

Ah, classic Who! Ever since I got into the new series, I've always been meaning to watch some of the older stuff, too-- Tom Baker's era (plus possibly some of Peter Davison's era) in particular. I'll get around to it eventually... :)

It's been so long since I've made it to a fiesta! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hooray! I'll have tea please!

I haven't been at the computer during a Friday Fiesta for I can't remember how long.

Looking forward to our Thanksgiving weekend. I like turkey (with all the fixings!) - but I think I love the leftovers best. It will just be the three of us this year, so we've got a very small turkey - but there will be enough for some yummy Turkey sandwiches and some wonderful Turkey-bone soup. Yum!

It's going to be a chilly weekend up here in the great white north - but that's OK. I hope to be able to help Mr. ShyElf with some raking and light yard work.

Cheers!

Howdy Everyone! [In reply to] Can't Post



My daughter, 2 g'sons and I are driving to Lake Michigan to enjoy a brisk, windy day at Pentwater, Michigan... just over 2 hrs away. I go every October when the tourists are gone, the wind is fast enough to make 3-6 ft waves, the trees are in full colour, and hot chocolate is the drink of the day! Winter coats are a must and a bag for collecting shells, feather and pebbles.

It's soul-refreshing and the place I think about whenever Legolas talks about the sea. :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!! Thanks so much for taking care of us, Evey! I'll just snag a quick hot chocolate to prep me for tomorrow ;)

I used to live by the sea, and miss it greatly now. I'll never forget the evening I went for a walk along the beach knee deep in snow. The snow was right up to the sea, and there wasn't a sole in site. It was very surreal, especially as this was in the UK!

It did go fast! [In reply to] Can't Post

We got a new fangled PVR just before the series started, so I recorded each episode. Then, the *&(@# cable company did something (still don't know what) and erased all my recordings! Mad

Oh well - we did record the last one (ShyElf The Younger and I both cried!) and I'm sure we'll be able to find the other episodes to watch them again (and again).

But - you know, that's a good idea. Some classic Doctor Who episodes....hmmm, might be just what The Doctor ordered!

Cheers!
