Happy Birthday Hubby!!!

Please join me in wishing my wonderful husband a very happy 51st Birthday.

He plays many instruments and is forever taking on new obsessessions, but he's stuck with me for nearly 20 years now.

Even when he drives me crazy (Utilikilt anybody?) and scares me to death with the recent motorcycle accident, he's still the guy who puts up all my mishegas, which is a lot of damn mishegas. "No honey, I can't go to bed right now, I'm trying to write underage crossover femslash crack with Test Card Girl and Tarot Girl"

We're going out to Fog City Diner tonight to celebrate and I'll pass on any good wishes that come in.

Random babbling

Apparently we had an earthquake a few hours ago. 4.5 maybe. I can't really say I felt anything up here, althought I might have. At this point you've gotta fo 6.0 or more to really get my attention.

No Peggy and No Sebastian, so I hung out with Frank for awhile. He's doing well. One of his last perks from Virgin was a ticket to see Branford Marsalis at the Legion of Honour, so he was getting in some Karaoke before leaving for that. Afterwards, I hung out with Andy and managed to get some writing done. I know it's dangerous to do anything on paper given my recent tendency to lose notebooks, but for some reason it's still easier for me to hunker down at the bar and write at the Mint then do it at home on the lap top with LJ and Cubis and Gmail giving me all the distraction I need NOT to write. As it was, I made a start on Chapter 6, which is encouraging, although I haven't quite written the end of chapter 5 yet.

Ain't Love A Kick In The Head-Dean Martin
I'm Telling You Now-Freddy and the Dreamers
Soolaimon-Neil Diamond



He called me at the Mint all excited about something he'd taped on our Tivo that he was sure I wanted to see but didn't tell me what it was. When I got home he said, "Have you heard of a documentary called "The Making of Me" and I had to tell him that I saw it back in May and had some real issues with it. I felt so bad, because he was thinking he'd found something Barrowman that I hadn't seen yet. I asked if we were taping Any Dream Will Do, which I hadn't actually seen before. We weren't, but we did. Obviously that's something he has no interest in whatsoever, so I'll watch during the week while he's at work.

Prompt #88

Well I'm not the kind to live in the past
The years run too short and the days too fast
The things you lean on are the things that don't last
Well it's just now and then my line gets cast into these

House Babble for Locked In

I was planning to cancel the House party due to Hubby's birthday, but we got home fifteen minutes before show time. I offered to stay off-line and let him zap commercials but he told me to go ahead with the party and even kept his paws off the FF button, so yay him.

This will include lots of speculation based on spoilers.
