whiski_sour: (Happy Halloween)
Happy Halloween! I'm going to miss the live Michael Myers wallpaper on my phone (It's a picture of the Wallace house; lightening flashes and Michael Myers appears randomly and blood splatters the screen when I get a message). Seeing Halloween (1978) in the theater last night while wearing a Michael Myers shirt and possessing Michael Myers wallpaper on my phone might be the geekiest horror thing I've accomplished to date.

Juggling three jobs has been challenging lately. Neighbor is working overtime so now I'm taking the boy to school four days a week instead of alternating weeks of two and three days. Floorset was on Sunday instead of Tuesday/Wednesday so we wouldn't have to work on Halloween. I was going to dogsit for Aunt Jo, but can't do that due to changing kid shuttling schedule but I still have to go down for a little while because while Carrie is going to do it, she won't be able to get down there until later than Aunt Jo needs. Throw in Halloween, the movie, and voting into the mix and I need every bit of calendar help I have to keep it all straight.

I'm tired, but at least the bills are getting paid.

Keeping the East Coast in my thoughts as they start to rebuild. Sandy was a right bitch out there, quite different from the Sandy I worked with who is very nice.

The short story: Went to Wrigley yesterday for the Cubs/Giants game and despite the rain delay and the loss (1-0), I had a great time.

The long story...is under the cut. )

I'm sure I'm forgetting things, but I didn't get home until about 2:30 this morning and didn't get to bed until almost four. I'm pretty sure I left my brain in Chicago.

Not that I'm complaining.

You know me; I love Panic TV.

There's a tornado warning for a couple of local counties and my favorite meterologist, Lee, was giving us the rundown about 6:30. The warning was scheduled to expire at 6:45.

Lee was saying that if the warning was allowed to expire and no new warning for any other counties were issued, that we'd go back to regular programming. Or more accurately, he said something to the effect of "we'll get you back to Wheel of Fortune. I know you're missing it. I'm missing it. I love that show" and then went right back into talking about the specifics of the tornado warning.

I died laughing.

Sadly, the warning ended up being extended until 7:30.

No Wheel of Fortune for Lee.

I think we're winding down our second set of storms today.

The first set hit in the extremely early hours and lasted most of the morning. The second set hit around seven. In between, the temperature went up and the humidity went with it.

The moisture in the air clung to everything. I felt in desperate need of a shower all day, despite taking one. The carpets in the living room and my room were damp. The furiture was damp. It wasn't desirable to touch anything or anyone, really.

However, between the storms I did laundry. I could have picked a better day for it, but I didn't feel like waiting until Thursday. I decided to just go for it and risk hanging it outside. I could have hung it downstairs, but it probably wouldn't have been dry until next week.

The risk paid off and I have clean, dry clothes.

I also ran a few errands, including sending of "Hillbilly Hunt" to a magazine. It's a small circulation mag, nothing big and fancy, but it's my first submission that isn't to a contest and I'm rather excited about it. I don't even mind the possibility of rejection. I'm making a go of it after years of thinking my stuff isn't good enough. I've got to the point where I think I won't be wasting someone's time if they read my work and that satisfies me.

For now.
