*gets keys, unlocks doors* Welcome to Friday Fiesta! Can't Post

Hey, everyone!

I'm subbing today, so (as usual :) ) feel free to choose your food/drink/music/etc., and tell us about your past week and/or upcoming weekend! :)

I'll take an Angel Mist please as it's chilly out [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm headed over to the other side of the Cascade Mountains for a week of fresh-powder skiing. Supposed to turn sunny mid-week. Lucky me, my friends just built a house in the Methow Valley where there's about 200 km of cross-country trails, so I get to stay for free! If you don't count cooking them a couple of dinners, that is.

Nice to be back [In reply to] Can't Post

Although I was only gone for a week and missed one Fiesta. Tongue

The Gaffer and I spent a week in the Caribbean---we have to get in touch with the sea every now and then---and are now recovering. He picked up the virus that most people in the US seem to have and I'm tottering around wondering whether I'm going to get it from him. Unsure

I've never been able to figure out why recovering from a holiday takes longer than the holiday itself. It's not that we're getting older or anything, mind you!

I'll grab some hot Vitamin C tea and go back to my easy chair, thanks, Evey!

It's almost up to 20 F here today - I thought it felt warm out! Laugh We're supposed to get a bit of snow tonight and tomorrow. Did you get the "big freeze" this past week?

Green tea please, Evey :) [In reply to] Can't Post

Pretty boring week here. I've been reading a lot, and it's cold... that's about it.

Less than a week left of my January interim class, for which I'm glad. While it's not a bad class, it doesn't go very deep, and so I'm bored.

In more exciting news, Rice U is flying me down to Houston in a week. Smile

But I hope that, other than that, you two were able to get plenty of swimming in. Is it true that Texas has no natural lakes?

He may have caught the bug after we got home [In reply to] Can't Post

You know, you're on the alert while you're traveling, and then you think you're home free. No, we didn't do any swimming---we were on a ship---but we spent all the time we could watching the water. The waves coming in to Puerto Rico were beautiful!

Texas has only one natural lake, in the east part of the state, I think. The rest are all formed from dammed up rivers and many have been around long enough to be quite attractive in their own right.

Stay warm!

Green tea with honey, please! [In reply to] Can't Post

Ok, this is my first time posting on one of these threads, I think...

I'm hoping to get some writing done this weekend. I'm almost a month late on a couple art trades due to a combination of illness and cripling depression. Also hoping to avoid getting sick again, but a cold seems to be coming on.

No alcohol for me, alas. I tried it once in the last couple weeks and it completely tanked my mood, so I'm working strictly on uppers like tea and coffee.

Also have some personal poetry and birding reports I'd like to work on. I'll be happy just to get anything done, really.

all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...

That says something about the climate in these parts, as well as the terrain, doesn't it?

We fell in love with cruising a little over a year ago when we did the Cruise to Middle-earth. This one was our third. We're semi-retired and easing into the cruise demographic---and I don't mean the folks participating in the belly-flop contests. Cool

Succumbed to the flu virus that's going around here in Stuttgart [In reply to] Can't Post

Must have picked it up from my ex-boyfriend (or is 'manfriend' the correct term for someone in his fifties?) last week when my persistent cold was finally gone and I was feeling quite well again and decided to visit him on Wednesday and bring him some food. Oh dear --- felt okay last Friday evening so ventured forth on Saturday afternoon for my fifth viewing of TH AUJ (somewhat addictive, that film! --- Gramma is bound to be suffering acute withdrawal symptoms today if last night was really the last time her cinema showed it!), and that night in bed my throat didn't feel right. The next morning, voilą, the cough and the aching limbs and the sinus headaches had materialised overnight. No fever, though, which is bad as it makes the whole thing drag on and on and heading towards sinusitis/bronchitis to which I'm very susceptible. *sigh*. I'll never get this place tidied up at this rate...

Couldn't bear to stay in bed all the time, had to get to the library on three different days to pick up something I spied in the online catalogue, figuring that a bit of fresh air would do me good (plus had to buy food), and also that wonderful things like the chance to listen to Richard Armitage's voice for almost five hours would give my immune system a boost. Let's hope it works!

A great many people I know in this town are sick, too, so this virus is quite nasty. To fight it, I'll have some miruvor and some Glenmorangie Single Malt, and as for music, that old song by Rod Stewart, 'Sailing' would be nice, please, Evie...

STILL NASTY BUSY... but I had to come in and say HI and wish everyone a wonderful weekend!

I'm going through a bit of withdrawal after waving a fond farewell to The Hobbit as it sails away from my local theatre. Those people there have been so cool! I'm going to boast about them on The Hobbit Board, but they gave me:

Tickets at a $2 discount (bought all 25 ahead of time) - 28 viewings all told
Gave me the BIG VINYL Twizzler promo banner with Gandalf on the Road pic on the front (about 6 ft wide & 3 ft tall)
Same pic on the BIG Popcorn Standee (about 4 ft high)
A full-size Hobbit UJ movie poster
They tried to get me a Bilbo standee, but they weren't availble for them to order anymore. :(


So I packed the theatre crew a THANK YOU package of 2 big packages of fruity Life Savers (Rings) and Green Delicious Apples (green food/apples for walking)

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Thanks lots Evey *snags warm cider*

Tall iced tea, sweet, no lemon, please. [In reply to] Can't Post

We've had spring weather here this week, upper 70s and low 80s. So nice. But it's made me think about cleaning out the garden, which is a dismal tangle of weeds, and then I get over that feeling. Tongue

In other news, Little Eruvande and Dad are going Boy Scout camping, and will be helping to replant trees that were destroyed in last year's devastating fires in Bastrop, TX. Sounds like a lot of work, but it will be fun.

While the big boys are camping, The Little Goblin and I are attending a hockey game. (Yes we have hockey in Texas!) Locally, there is a farm team for the Dallas Stars, and they'll give Cub Scouts discounted tickets. Well, really, they'll give anybody discounted tickets, in an effort to get bodies in the seats. But we like watching hockey, and there's always a chance for a fight! (Yes, I know, sportsmanship, and all that, but who doesn't like to see a couple of heavily padded dudes attempting to pound on each other while wearing ice skates? TongueAngelic)

Have a great weekend, everyone!
