Good Saturday one again, good people! Greetings and Salutations, one and all.
And how fares the all this fine day? 'tis sunny and blue skies all around So Cal now. Though yesterday, it rained down in freaking buckets. There was even a little thunder and lightning which was awesome. And a huge waterspout off the coast in Corona del Mar... which would have been super-awesome had I gotten to see it live and in person. *le sigh* One of these days, I'm going to fulfill my dream of going tornado chasing. One day.
Anyway... it was a pretty decent week around these parts. Work was... well... work, which is always somewhat bleh. But you gotta pay the bills so what are you gonna do? I was pretty productive on the writing front and am making some real progress toward finishing out Project O' Doom I while keeping the fires burning on Project O' Doom II as well. I have to be honest, I'm not really *feeling* POD II as much as I was before. I'm unsure of it at the moment. But it could also be that I'm so laser-focused on clearing out POD I that all of my real energy and attention is going there. Once I clear the decks and re-start on POD II full time, with all of my energy and focus going there, perhaps I'll feel better about it again. I don't know. We shall see. I'm just stoked to see light at the end of the tunnel with POD I. Super stoked even.
I was very glad to see my LA Kings take the first two games of the series from the hated Vancouver Canucks... *IN* Vancouver. Now if they can only take the next two back here in LA, it's on to the second round for my boys! They've looked damn good so far in the series. Scrappy, chippy, opportunistic and fierce! Playoff hockey is the best. GO KINGS GO! On the other hand though, my Angels have stumbled out of the starting gate and so far, Albert Pujols isn't looking to be worth the $240 million the team spent on him. But the season is still very young and it's a marathon, not a sprint. I'm sure they'll pull themselves together and win that division handily.
Today, I'm taking pixie117 on a soooper seekrit adventure. We definitely need some fun and adventure. I'm *pretty* sure she'll enjoy it... I'm *hoping* she will... but we'll see. I'd tell you all what it is but I don't want to give the surprise away since I know she can check El Jay from her phone. Plus, I don't want you all looking at me like I'm a total freakish weirdo. Any more than you already do anyway. But I'm sure I'll write all about it later and maybe even get to include a few pictures of our adventure today!
So what is going on with you all, my fine, feathered friends? What is the haps in your worlds and how has the Universe treated you this week? What have been the highs and lows? The ups and downs? What has been the good, the bad and the ugly for you this week? What sort of adventure do you have on tap this weekend? Or are you making it a mellow, stay inside sort of weekend?
You all know how this works... got a funny story to share? A joke? Riddle? Rhyme? Feel the need to unload and get something off your chest? Need to climb atop a soapbox and rant to the world? Scream at the top of your lungs? Well, this is the place to do it. This here is your place to do it. This is your sandbox, so jump on in and play a bit. Anything and everything is welcomed here. So the spotlight is now yours...
As always, the Purge Bucket is open for your convenience... spew forth, my friends!
