Knocking wood here, but hoping it's a mellow day at work. So far so good! I have a bacon and egg biscuit from Del Taco and a cup of tea.


So, let's get some comments going for a Friday. Can be random or informative. Whatever strikes your fancy.  And if you're one of the many new friends around here, and we've never spoken, please tell me a bit about yourself and what brings you here. Not required, just like meeting new people!

It's a bank holiday weekend in Ireland - whoo hoo! The weather is a bit iffy here but if it improves I might have an 'adventure' this weekend and go to a beach/take a trek through the woods. I'm keeping it simple, though, as next weekend I'm flying out to New York for a family get together (It's my Nana's 100th Birthday!)

On the geeky side of things - are you watching Continuum? Please say you're watching continuum :-P

Have a safe trip and a wonderful time!

The only time I've heard about it is your posts on LJ :( What's it about How long has it been on

Thank you, honeybun!

Continuum is a Canadian Time Travel/Sci Fi series and is just finishing its first series tonight (but it's only 10 episodes long, so its easy to catch up on :-P) I don't want to give away any plot points (all I'll say is there are revolutionaries/ terrorists and a future run by corporate empires - democracy has fallen) but things are a lot greyer that they first appear - and it was in episode 5 that I fell in love with this series!)

Hmmm, sounds like it might be interesting. I wonder if it will air here on SciFi?

It's seems to be the trend (they bought Showcase's Lost Girl) but there's nothing official yet. Mind you, they might be waiting for Showcase to officially renew...although it'd be weird if they didn't. Apparently, it's the highest rating series they've ever had.

On a plane en route to Orlando, Florida, to visit family, Walt Disney World, and Legoland.

Tell me what you think of Legoland.

I thought it seemed awesome but over-priced but I had customer last month RAVE about it. They had even gotten PASSES!

If only it wasn't in the middle of nowhere.

We're leaving for two days to visit some friends in our nation's capital. One of said friends is driving here, picking us up, and then driving all the way there....to be repeated on Sunday.

As Starhubby likes to say to this particular friend: "Wow, you must be, like, a friend or something!" ;)

Sounds like you're going to have a great weekend!

It was! :) I barely even had to babysit...their kids kept Starkid very busy, and they played very nicely with her (if not with each other!). Hee.

And then Phil opened his eyes to see four anxious faces looking back at him.

"Fury told us you were dead," Tony stated.

Oh, it was too early or too late to deal with Tony yet...
He looked for Pepper but she wasn't there. He'd have to get Tasha or Clint to get him out. Still, there was a softness to his face that was disconcerting. Had Tony cared?

"Is it over?" Phil asked.

Will keep my fingers crossed :)

My kids are off to the county fair with their grandmother so I'm puttering around with my fics--the Sherlock one and the Loki one--and contemplating making some loaves of French bread in the lovely quiet of the afternoon.

It's so easy to get distracted by fanart on the Internet, really!

went to look at two houses after work. one was downright scary. i don't know how people could be living there.

the second one, LOVED. been on the market for 403 days, so i am putting together a low offer, just to see if i can get it for that. if not, then maybe it will open up some back and forth.

oh and there's 3 cars in the yard, covered by tarps. i think one of them is a dodge charger of old. and if i were collecting cars, and i had a dodge charger, then one of the others (that my uncle thought might be a camaro) could very well be, my dream car... an early 70's olds...
and now, bed.

When we were looking for houses, we saw some darn scary stuff! Luck!
