    Now that is a REAL Jedi! (Better be nice to him!)

    I'd give up Chinese food for a year, if it would appease the Gods of Casting. :obiwan:

    Hey.

    Am I the only one comfortable in shorts and a t-shirt today? :p I know I'm a bit late to the weather discussion, though.

    Are you in Hawaii, @BookExogorth? LOL! Still cold where we are, but the wet stuff has moved away. Am told that everything has a casing of ice, which means some serious scraping of the car this morning... Oh, joy. Oh, rapture. [face_bleh] On the plus side, we're having a heat wave today! It's actually supposed to get up to 45F! (7C).

    It's going to be 40 today, so a light jacket and jeans will do it for me.

    Here's my 7-day forecast right now:

    [​IMG]

    Typical Ohio yo-yo weather. Also, that snow on Saturday is supposedly going to be around 6 inches. I hope not. We've already had more snow this winter than we did the entire winter last year.

    We are getting a Yo-Yo here too. Yesterday was 0C, today it's -15C, tomorrow it's supposed to be -25C, and by Saturday it's going to be back up to -4C. WHAAAA?

    I feel like I deserve a cookie. I got up at 8 today (I was actually up at 7 but I laid in bed because I was also up at 3), did some cleaning and I'm already working. I've got a 500 word goal for today and I'm going to hit it (I hope).

    I clearly don't deserve a cookie, but the weather was lovely and I still have an assistant, so I'll count today as a win :D

    It was in the mid 40's F today so that was nice. Except there was slush everywhere!! I was waiting on a bus and thankfully I was watching for it because a truck came flying by right through the slush on the road and it went everywhere! I jumped back right before it got all over me.

    No slush where I am, but the non-salted sidewalks were slick this morning when I walked to work.

    My dad replaced his mattress set today, downsized from a queen to a twin because he doesn't intend to remarry, and moved several pieces of furniture around so he could rotate the bed 90° and get it out of the center of the room, which opened up a ton of space in his bedroom.

    After spending most of the day helping him with that, now I've spent the past couple of hours cleaning my own room in preparation for doing something similar. I plan to rotate the bed 180°, put it on the opposite wall, take the TV down and remount it on the opposite wall (so basically the bed and TV swap walls), remove three bookcases, move both dressers, and buy and set up a new, proper computer desk to replace the makeshift one that I've been using for the past 15 years. So far, I've cleaned up about a quarter of the room. Much more will be done after dinner and tomorrow, with the aim of hopefully moving everything around Thursday or Friday. I want it all in place before spring semester starts next Tuesday.

    I’ll throw my Jedi robes in the ring for Ewan as Obi-Wan. Yeah, a great Ewan-Wan movie is exactly what I want.

    Scrolling up and seeing insanity in @Chyntuck’s post. All I can say is hail the calm security bro...and sheesh...

    Hi Nehru_Amidala,

    Glad to hear you have running water again. [:D]

    DRL is kicking into high gear here. I hope to dip in when I can after this weekend.

    Thank you, @Findswoman (again!), @Chyntuck and @Gamiel. It was good. :) We went to my aunt's and the one of the dudebros that was present - the other is in Oslo - was pretty normal and we talked about many things. He's inherited his dad's talent for photography, which kind of runs in the family, since my dad was good too and, well, I'm probably the best. :p

    The next holiday is the Julian New Year's Eve on Saturday. I shall be making crepes. LOTS OF THEM. And we'll be watching ANH.

    I withdraw all I said about the French woman. Or almost all. This is scary and abnormal in so many ways. I seriously thought she was hypersensitive and possibly a quiet borderline, or a petulant one like me - we can't stand rejection, we have a debilitating fear of it. But nope, this borders...on sociopathy. NOPENOPENOPE.

    People usually think of me when they see a goat. So, this is new. :D

    I had another headache yesterday. Since they happen exclusively on Tuesdays and it's weird, I told about it to my pdoc at the regular appointment we had this morning. She thinks that it's some sort of performance anxiety, that I strive to be the most read author for the week and that hasn't happened for the two months since I joined the magazine I write columns for. So, Tuesdays and early Wednesdays send me into OMG.MUST.OUTPERFORM. mode. I blame the way I was raised and my dad - he was an underachiever who wanted me to be perfect. So, I either outperform people or I deliver something half-assed and then wonder why I'm not the best, or whatever. This must stop, since it's now almost definitely psychosomatic.

    @Ewok Poet - glad you had a nice Christmas. Creatives like us (meaning everyone who creates on this board and beyond) are our own worst critics. I am learning to let that go especially since I picked up drawing last year. Perfection does not exist, you can only do the best you can that day. Kindly throw this back in my face when I pop up again.

    Mmmm...crepes.

    Those headaches will pass.

    As for me, more practice and searching for work, and other DRL business and then perhaps I can create something this afternoon. Have to look at tomorrow’s workshop at the Unemployment Office as positive. Okay, back to it.

    Have a good day and evening everyone,

    Early release, so that means 2 hours of overtime pay for me!
