I Looked Out the Window And What Did I See?

When the bold branches
Bid farewell to rainbow leaves -
Welcome wool sweaters.
~B. Cybrill


It wasn't Popcorn Popping From the Apricot Tree (tell me I'm not the only one who remembers that song from camp?).

Anyway...

Took the dog out this morning around 5 a.m. and ... wait... what's that, falling from the sky?

SNOW???????????????

Seriously?

::::whacks head on table::::

Snow.

In October.

Someone up there has a really warped sense of humor.

==========================

Still working on scene cards for the story I was to write during NaNoWriMo. I still think I'm going to give myself permission to write only 500 words a day without guilt, while still striving for more. I'd rather have 15,000 words done by the end of November, than to feel so rotten about not reaching the 1500 words a day goal that I completely give up.... yanno?

OTOH, if I can get a good enough feel for where the story is (or could be) going, I might be able to make the 1500. We'll see. I have one great idea for a twist at the end that really makes me want to GET there, so I have incentive to write as much as I can.

============================

I watched this week's Criminal Minds last night. Kept feeling really weird that Allison from "Eureka" was there (okay, I realize she's just an actress, but it seems really odd for her to be what appears might become a recurring character on another series when she's in a successful series already). I know that "Henry" and "Jo & Zane" showed up on Warehouse 13, but I also knew that was a marketing ploy and they died at the end (mostly).

What about you? Would it seem odd for you to see the same actor/actress in two completely different series at the same time? Especially when they are a MAJOR character in one of them?

===========================




You Are Peppermint Flavored Gum



You have a sharp mind that is always churning.

You are mentally hyper. You're always thinking of something.



And while your mind is always on, you're not the most physically active person around.

Some people make mistake you for being lazy, but the truth is: you never relax.



You tend to get so deeply into your projects that you ignore everything around you.

You are creative and cutting edge. You love telling people about your newest ideas and discoveries.




Yeah... that's about right, lol. Judy's least favorite words from me? "I was thinking...."

*G*

It's definitely strange. I've been watching FlashForward and see Penny and Charlie from Lost on it. I see Tess from Eureka has a new show (hope that means she won't be back on Eureka). I also started watching Mercy and my James Tupper (Anne Heche is only borrowing him) as well as two other actors from Men In Trees are on it. Glad to see they still have jobs.

Snow?? You did NOT just say that!!!!!

The song you mentioned is one I sang with my sunday school class. I still remember it.

So you have snow. After our torrential rains and wind, we are finally having a little sun today.

You are friendly, outgoing, and energetic.
You love life, and you can always find some reason to smile.

You are a bit hyper, and you're always looking for your next challenge.
You love getting things done - and you are usually on the go.

Your confidence and positive attitude makes you a very attractive person.
You can be a little flaky at times, but people are able to overlook that - because you're so fun!

I think a lot of actors are show hopping. The coach on Glee is the psychiatrist on Two and a Half Men.

Yikes, now already. I really hope we get some snow this year.

Have a good Friday.

I'm doing NaNoWriMo but I totally cheated, started early and have written almost 4,000 words already. It's my first time!

Brandy said...

You are NOT the only freaked out by that. I wanted to say "but, but, she has her own show!". *G*
My bublegum answer was wrong in description, but I do like that flavor. *G*

I hope things go the way you want them to today! As for the snow? Feel free to send it our way.

I haven't seen that episode of Criminal Minds yet. But it IS weird seeing people from one show on another.

I wish it would snow here!!!! Mt. Hood is finally turning white! Skiing is just around the corner!

I don't watch any TV so I can't answer your question.

Snow wow, quite a few places got it.

Good luck with the writing!
