HEY!!! It's FIESTA FRIDAY!!! *chinkles keys* Can't Post

Who wants something to drink!?

I'll be your bartender fill-er-up fill-in for today since our lovely Altaira is busy with RL demands! I also have a friendly ear if you want to share what you've been doing, what you intend to do, and what you've forgotten to do.

ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!! *toots horn* Next Fiesta (November 9th) will be HOMECOMING FIESTA! It's a very special Fiesta when we welcome back wayward TORnadoes, celebrate our awesome newbies, and encourage lurkers to come out of the shadows and share a tale or two J

So look through your email list and put the call out to our friends who have been pulled away by RL distractions and tell them the drinks are on the house!

*kicks youtube* In the spirit of Halloween and because it's just SO WEIRD… Check this out! Bruce Willis Moonlights

wow, I'm here on time! [In reply to] Can't Post

Usually miss it altogether, or only get here after the self-serve sign goes up.

It's November. I'll have an Angel Mist, please!

My dissertation has been approved and the oral defense set for Monday Dec. 3! Very excited to reach this goal.

Thanks for subbing! :) [In reply to] Can't Post

As for what I've been doing, every year on my website from November through December I feature the Rockin' Christmas Picks! article (a review of the best Rocking Christmas music) on the front page, so I had to update that with some new additions/links and get it featured on the site yesterday. Went well, though, and now there's even more great stuff for people to enjoy on there, so that's good. :)

A Fall/Winter Usual please, gramma; thanks, and I hope you have a great weekend! *hugs* :)

Got any showers to go? [In reply to] Can't Post

Of the hot, soaking kind, that is! Laugh Actually, our local school that's been used as a shelter offers showers, and a friend called up earlier and said "Power's back on at our house, we've got towels, come on over!".

It's amazing how we miss these "little comforts" of life. And they're little, compared to the huge problems a lot of folks are facing. Unsure

Could I have a large mug of coffee, please, gramma? There are some upsides to storms: I've been able to finish off some odds & ends of work! Smile

How did everyone fare, out your way?

Oh wow, dernwyn. [In reply to] Can't Post


Here's a BIG MUG of coffee... may the force be with you!

It's unbelievable what all of you are going through. Just to have hot water and electricity is a comfort. I hear they still don't know when the power will be back on. You must be so worried about your home, friends and neighbors. *warm hug* Leave it to you to make lemonade :) Always classy... that's you!



Hang in there! My prayers are with you all....

Once again, I'm rushing in and rushing out [In reply to] Can't Post

We were supposed to be in Colonial Williamsburg this week, but we postponed our plans because of the hurricane. I mean really, so many people are suffering from the storm postponing a trip is nothing Unsure

Besides, having another couple of weeks at the keyboard means I should have a complete manuscript before we leave, and will be able to enjoy several days off even more than I would have enjoyed them knowing I had several chapters left to write. We'll see how it works out.... *puff puff*

I'll grab a quick pumpkin spice latte from our lovely barkeep and be on my way. Y'all take care and have a great weekend!

Flashes on horizon of many Gandalfs [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi gramma and all. I am a survivor of Sandy, our friendly neighborhood Saruman type, hurricane. Here is an email i 1st let out to say we are good:

''Power came on late yesterday but the cable was the next to find that went south. It has just been fixed and i went to find my email and there is 3 pages to rip through.
I have not been to TORN to see what dernwyn said from my texts to her. We we in full constraint mode to all resources not knowing when things will rebound. Most gas stations are still closed. And no fresh food has arrived to food stores. There is now enough wood down to last....for years i will say. I already have retrieved 3 pickup loads. The most memorable' family bonding moment' was the bucket brigade that mrs. sil young sil and i did to empty the cellar of water. It must have been 1000+ gallons. We got a system rolling and got it done. Due to that effort and a single continued action (not felt at that time) i have the sorest left butt-cheek i ever had ha! .
Young sil has had off all week mainly due to the high school being used as the town shelter.
I had a system going to be able to last for a while.I had 12+ gallons of fresh water plus many bottles in our vehicles, free heat with wood, mick's camp stove with 8 bottles of propane, a full freezer and frig and fresh batteries, (plenty) water from the cellar floor to flush the toilets. I picked up at the last moment 'miner lights', i will say that is a strapped led light for the head. Good reading hours with that and for all around, get-around.''.

To get back to my subject heading, that 1st bad night about 3AM i looked out and it seemed i saw many Weather Top events with flashes, some actually illuminating the low clouds. It was actually all the broken live wires and blown transformers that was making that effect.
Previously at 8pm i took a walk in the dark raging forest to experience that storm and it was actually exhilarating. It reminds me of the story of John Muir climbing a pine to the tippy-top to experience a storm in the high Sierra's. I was looking at a beautiful stand of pines and spruces thinking that. I had no intention of doing any climbing though, good thing, they are all down or leaning but one.

At 4AM (tues morn)i took an hour drive in one huge blackout in my area. I needed to get a sense of what happened....and make a plan.

And thank you for your concern everyone.
Now if i can just find some Beck's Ale to celebrate..life in general:).

thanks! [In reply to] Can't Post

I will give a 30-minute presentation, and then I have to field questions from my committee and anyone else who shows up. The point of the questions, my chair says, is to see if I have a solid enough grasp on my own ideas that I can think on my feet instead of just giving a canned response.

(Unlike most politicians . . . )

And yes, after that I'll be Dr. Annael. But only in formal situations. I am not going to be one of those people who has to be addressed by their title by everyone!

It does solve the Miss/Ms/Mrs issue nicely Wink

Ahh! [In reply to] Can't Post

Now that is a shower! Laugh And know what that R2 mug reminds me of? That "May the dwarves be with you" T-shirt - that is one of the bestest ideas ever!

We all keep checking up on each other, and at least in this area, no one was harmed during the storm. As they kept reminding those who were told to evacuate: Houses can always be rebuilt, but people...

*raises mug* Here's to all those stalwart folks involved in the cleanup efforts!

Hey you there! [In reply to] Can't Post

*virtual flying-tackle hug* Good to see you online! Do you know, I was fielding your texts while trying to keep conversations with my dad, then the in-laws, everyone wanting details on how we were...my biggest fear was the battery on the cell phone running out! Laugh

How did the plant-life in your yard fare? And any idea as to what happened at the camp? Would the lake have flooded at all? Did you keep most of the water away from the furnace? Etc. etc.?

OhioHobbit and I have been thinking about you a lot. Glad you survived so well (except for the *unmentionable* soreness). Hope you get your power back soon. Maybe they will get the power on all over NJ sooner than they expect.

We have been thinking about all the people living in the northeast. Hope clean-up and fix-up goes well for everyone.
