Greetings one and all! And for those of us in the States, a very Happy Memorial Day weekend to you!!! Unless of course, you don't celebrate Memorial Day. In which case, Happy Saturday to you!
And how fares thee all this fine Saturday afternoon? Assuming you *do* have a 3-Day weekend, what's on tap for y'all? BBQ? Hanging out with friends and family? General rampaging and pillaging?
I for one, am looking forward to a long, mellow as heck weekend. This past week felt sooooo loooooong. But it's over. Now it's time to relax and unwind. I wanted to give a big thanks to everybody that donated and helped boost the signal for Annabelle earlier this week. She seems to be improving which takes a whole huge heap of ick off of pixie117's shoulders. So both of those are very good things. Hopefully, Annabelle has turned the corner and is starting down the road to recovery. We'll have to keep an eye on her over the weekend and keep her mellow but things are starting to look good. The outpouring of support for pixie117 and her ginormous beast of a dog was seriously amazing to watch. So thank you all... you all made such a HUGE difference.
So in an effort to keep things mellow and relaxing this weekend, we'll be getting into the Game of Thrones series. We'd picked Season 1 last weekend but then everything with Annabelle happened so we never got to watch it. But I'm so insanely geeked up for this. I really loved the books and have heard nothing but good things about the series. Even my sister and her boyfriend got hooked on it and constantly rave about it. When they talk to me about the latest episode they watched, it's all I can do to say, "oh but wait, then this happens..." That's the advantage and curse of having read the books, I suppose! But since we have a clear weekend where we're homebound anyway, it seems like a good time to fire that thing up. So excited. I normally don't get this geeked up about anything on TV but this is an exception. Here's hoping it lives up to the hype and my own excitement!
The bummer of the week is that my computer crapped out on me. As in, it's totally toe-tagged. Done. Kaput. DOA. Went to fire it up to get some work done the other night and got nothing. It wouldn't even turn on. Ugh. I hope I can find a way to get my pictures off the hard drive... I've been slowly moving them all to someplace *off* my computer just in case something like this happened. I had it happen once before and lost a metric assload of pictures. *sigh* Apparently, I wasn't quick enough. The good thing is that I have my laptop though I much prefer typing on a real keyboard. Laptops are convenient and all, should I want to go to the coffee house to work or something but I far prefer desktops. I don't know, it's one of my strange little quirks I suppose. Sort of like the fact that at work, I can only use my left hand for the mouse whereas at home, I can only use my right. If I try to change that, it just *feels* weird and backwards to me and totally discombobulates me. I can't explain it. I'm an odd duck, this I know. So I'm going to have to look for a desktop that's reasonable and go about trying to snag it. Ugh.
Well, I should get myself together and get on the road. It's time to start the weekend. In addition to our Game of Thrones marathon, pixie117 and I are going to discuss my current POD (POD 2.5 if you're scoring at home) and try to put the wrapping and bow on POD I... a couple of decisions have to be made so hopefully, if we put our heads together we can finish it off. *fingers crossed*
But anyway... how was *YOUR* week, good people? How did the Universe treat you? Was it with love and kindness? Or was it with a cold indifference? Did it give you warm fuzzies or did it fill you with rage? What were the highlights and lowlights of your week, my friends? What made the final edit and what ended up on the cutting room floor? What was the good, the bad and the ugly of your week, folks?
We have some new faces around here so let me explain... this here is Ye Olde Purge Bucket. This is where you can come to verbally vomit anything and everything. Got a funny story to share? Need some advice? Need to step up on your soapbox and shout to the heavens? Need to fling open your window and shout "You're as made as hell and you're not going to take it anymore?" Do you have the burning desire to share something good and nice with us all? Need to just get something off of your chest? This is the place to do it. Anything and everything is welcome and encouraged here! This is your place to sound off about whatever happens to be on your mind! So step on up, grab the microphone and let's hear what you have to say! The floor, is yours...
As always, the Purge Bucket is open for your convenience... spew forth, my friends!!!
Hope everybody has a fantastic and SAFE weekend!!!
