Green Room Week 6 Day 4

Only one more day until deadline!

This week feels really short for some reason. Heck, this last part of the year has flown by for me!

sydb42 stopped by in the Green Room yesterday to say hello. I love it when members of "the audience" who have never played the game step out of the shadows and say hello! So if you are out there, reading but not playing, feel free to say hi!

Heck, the same holds true of veterans of past seasons!

So how are the rest of you today?

Been reading anything good?

edit to add: In case you missed it, we are now at 114... in other words, you have now outlasted 40 people! Congratulations.

Morning!

Feels ike a LONG week here.

Beyond that just trying to wake up, we had our firm Christmas party last night. It was a heck of a lot of fun. I actually ate less then I normally do at these things. I think it was due to them finally having something up my alley, two Wii's! So I taught my boss have to play, kicked one coworkers butt at bowling, barely survived by a different coworker by bowling, watched a coworker and my boss duke it out on boxing.

It was a good time.

Work has been a bit busy so I have been behind on my reading.

This week HAS seemed a little short- I think it's because I've been so busy. My roommate told me this week that HE'D be moving out as well, and that sort of changes everything. I mean, if I was just taking off, I didn't necessarily have to scrub clean everything and it'd be OK(ish) if I had to leave a few things for a couple extra days, but with him gone, I'll have to be completely out.

And I don't have anywhere to go yet!

I dealt with the most bumbling real estate evar last night as I looked at a local apartment, but I decided against it (Very difficult to do, though, as it was 1.5 miles away from home, but coin-operated laundry in the basement? Um... no.)

I think I'll be a'ight, but between semesters and with Christmas... this is a challenge!

I'm debating whether or not to use my last bye. This week has been awful and I'm never home from work long enough to sit down and think about what to write! Boo. I love urban legends, too.

A mini-rec list
Morning everyone!

It is COLD here in Maine this morning, with 1-3" of snow predicted today, and a blizzard after I leave.

I am enjoying my trip, nonetheless.

Favorite entries so far?

angstzeit's entry an oil crisis in the future
bleuunicorn's entry on ghosts
celticboy's entry which ties into screenwriters
chazari's entry about a bad day
monkeysugarmama's entry retelling the dog bitten attacker
n_decisive's entry on the search for bloody mary
shay_writes's entry on the locked cemetery
tulip_in_yellow's ghost story
walkertxkitty's entry on the ivory billed woodpecker

And I just finished a really amusing book about a psychic detective (does that count)?

Hullo Everyone!

Oh fuck...I sound overly bloody cheerful don't I? (I like my angsty image too much). It's 5:30 AM on the west coast, the heat's on and the cat just got his tummy rubbed.

Today - there'll be a holiday potluck at work (not participating since we're in a meeting during half that time). Has everyone been enjoying their holiday parties?

*haven't had any time to read this week*...Been doing our Christmas shopping -- still more to be done and has to be finished by the end of this week.

I woke up to discover that my cat knocked over the Christmas tree. Approximately six ornaments lost in the fray, argh.

I recommend fidgety, srs_bidness and tulip_in_yellow. IRL, I just finished Haruki Murakami's South of the Border, West of the Sun, very lovely story about lost love and the notion of how "real" our lives are to us.

Gracias senorita!
*laughing*

My mother tells the story every year about the time I tried to climb the Christmas tree as a young child and ended up tipping it over on her.
"You could've killed me!" she'll say. Ah, the drama of it all.

Maybe you should ask for plastic ornaments for Christmas?

Well, that snowstorm spydielives just mentioned is supposed to dump up to 10" in my area. I should be at work by the time it begins, but I'll be driving home in the midst of it IF it lasts as long as "they" say it's going to last.

If I were off today I'd spend a good chunk of time reading this week's entries thus far.

Online shopping rocks! :)

And I just finished a book by A.J. Jacobs entitled A Year of Living Biblically. For a year Jacobs, an unapologetic agnostic Jew, tried to live as "biblically" as possible -- from clothing to observing almost everything in Leviticus and obeying all 10 Commandments -- in the streets of NYC. The first 6 months he concentrated on the Old Testament and several Orthodox Jewish communities in Brooklyn. The latter 6 months he explored the New Testament, meeting and observing difference Christian sects (including the snake handlers in Appalachia), attending services in a "mega church", and discussing all matters of faith with rabbis, ministers, and priests.

I found it utterly fascinating, and I admire his bravado for taking the Bible as literally as he did!

Sounds like a fascinating book. What's a snake handler.

I finished reading the Golden Compass and have started The Joy Luck Club.

Thanks to that midwest storm moving east... We have an inch of ice. All of the schools are closed. It took me 45 minutes to get to work (usually only 20 mins). Saw 3 accidents on the way. Stupid PennDot isn't plowing the roads.

I want to go home and back to bed. :^( I think I need some Cheetos and/or cookies.

Today I plan on reading more of this week's entries. I've read about 30 or so and I've been impressed with how varied all of the entries have been. I must say though, that I'm a bit surprised there are just over 60 or so entries posted thus far, given that it's Thursday. Maybe it's me, but it seems like this week is flying.

I need to write a newspaper article tonight and then read entries also. Last week was my insane week so this one has felt like a breeze in comparison.

The topic this week made me go "What??" for about two seconds and then I immediately wrote my piece, well, started one, deleted it, the wrote the one as it stands. I think the topic is great, but this is a really busy time of year so other people may be taking longer to sit down ad type.
