Not Your Regularly Scheduled WWWWH

Two-legged creatures we are supposed to love as we love ourselves. The four-legged, also, can come to seem pretty important. But six legs are too many from the human standpoint. ~Joseph W. Krutch

Through an error in scheduling, today doesn't have a WWWWH blog scheduled, so you're stuck with me. Not that I have much to gab about, really! LOL...

This morning, my inbox had an email from Chris Baty and the NaNoWriMo team that included this paragraph:

JUST 96 DAYS UNTIL WE START WRITING OUR NEW NOVELS!
I know, I know. It scares me too. But it's a good kind of scared.

That also means there are only 150 more shopping days until Christmas. Just saying.

If things are looking sort of under control at LASR/WC, I may give NaNo a try again this year. We'll have to see...

If you want to hear what Judy and I sound like (Judy has a great southern accent, BTW... not me, I'm from California and we don't have cool accents. Maybe I'll practice my New England ::::cah, bah, Wahl-Maht:::) we're going to be on Rowena Cherry's Crazy Tuesday radio show next Tuesday (August 4th). Should be interesting...

I tried to get some pictures of my garden for you yesterday, but kept getting dive-bombed by a deer fly and once one of those blood-suckers finds you, they NEVER stop attacking unless you kill them or run really fast. I tried to swat him, and did manage to whack him a couple times, but it did no good. So I had to run really fast (Dakota thought this was great fun). And I got no pictures.

Bad, bad deer fly.



In other insect news, in Pillar Place: Monarch the three remaining pillasr appear to happy and healthy and hungry. Hope they stay that way.

You Are Royal Blue



People find you difficult to understand. In fact, you often find it hard to understand yourself.

You think so much that sometimes you get lost in your own thoughts!

Deer flies should be illegal.
And -- gah!!!! -- thinking about Christmas in July, too! Please, oh, please, let me bask in the 48 more hours of heat and sunshine we can hope to enjoy before the winterizing begins!

I could have done without knowing how close it was to Christmas. *G* That fly looks mean as heck!

I hope your day goes well.

I refuse to think about deer flies OR Christmas.

I'm also Royal Blue. :)
