Today, it seems, Old Man Winter wants to come back for one last shot at having a party at our expense. But Hah! The snow blower sits at the ready and we all know that the Cubs are coming in a little over a month so try hard, Old Man - but your time is almost up!! And just knowing that is enough to get us through this.
For those of you who are reading Sarah - I had no idea Mackey was going to show up in Nevada. This is going to be interesting.
I may start splitting the weekend between Sarah and Gwalchmei. I think it's time to go back there, to Gwalchmei, but I don't want to slow down with Sarah. It just means that each episode will be twice as long as they tend to be now.
Not this coming weekend, though. I'm staying close to Sarah for at least this week - and probably next week, as well. As they say - we'll see.
Speaking of Sarah .... I am discovering the limits of acceptable environments in which to write. I wanted to get out of the house for a while on Friday, so I took my laptop and went to Barnes & Noble, where they have free WiFi. I sat in the cafe, put on my headphones and drank some hot chocolate while listening to music on my iPod Touch and working on the weekend episodes of Sarah. Too many chatty people make it very hard to maintain the mood. Too many chatty people destroy the chain of thought quicker than naked women walking by. Because if I'm focused, I might not SEE the naked women walking by - but with so many chatty people nearby, it's impossible to avoid all the noise. Of course, I would WANT to see the naked lady - and I would if I were having trouble establishing focus, but ... this is going nowhere quickly. Let it suffice to say - the next time I want to get out of hte house, I'll go to the library. No chatty people. Nor naked ladies, more's the pity.
