Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
What could I be eating now?

real women: charliemc
Back from the beach, a last trip before summer (not to mention vacation) ends. We played Fascination and had dinner at the Wayfarer, and despite the promise of an off-shore flow, it was still cloudy and cool in both Seaside and Cannon Beach. Naturally we followed dinner with a Zingers old fashioned ice cream cone. Mitch and Sue and Charlie all seems to enjoy themselves.

I have officially eaten my way through another vacation. I'm hopeless (or helpless).

I sucked at Fascination, even when I wore my real FBI hat for luck. (It was given to me after 9/11 by the SAC here in Portland, who became a buddy.) Sue played great and won three coveralls, our favorite. There's nothing like a little Fascination for a taste of old-fashioned fun. The game started in 1932, so you can imagine Purvis and Dillinger and those types playing it on the Jersey shore. What the heck is it? Go to Charlie's LJ here to find out.

Sounds like there was drama at the US Open today when they finally got the women's semis played after the rain. Serena actually lost to Kim, and she lost on a penalty point . . . unbelievable. We'll see if Rafa can overcome Delpo tomorrow . . . me doubts.

I want to welcome bradygirl_12 to my flist, yay! Met her through Public Enemies fandom, but I just noticed she's also a member at a couple other communities I frequent. I love making new friends in new fandoms!

And I was pleased with the way my first PE fanfic turned out. I have another I've got a pretty good start on and two others in the works, so we'll see how it goes.

And now I believe it must be time for coffee and powdered donuts!

I was just hearing of the drama at the open...

I think eating your way through your vacation is a wonderful thing to do :)

There have been many highlights . . . fried green tomatoes, of course (a late summer tradition), blackberry milkshakes from Burgerville, Mongolian barbeque at Chang's, rootbeer float from A&W, roasted corn on the cob w/butter, caesar salad with crab and shrimp, many pronto pups, hotdogs and hamburgers, lots of chili, pounds of popcorn at my three favorite summer movies (Public Enemies, Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince, and Terminator Salvation) and the old favorites, Taco Bell and McDonald's.

Oh, my. I'm making myself hungry.

and making me hungry too!

Glad to be here, Mistress! :)

I love making new friends in new fandoms. Public Enemies has really sucked me in. ;)

That menu sounds scrumptious! Root beer floats from A&W are awesome, and I just had some corn-on-the-cob last week.

I'm pleased to hear that there may be more PE fic from you. *dances* :)

Oh, and the damn Doritos . . . it's just one big carbohydrate orgy with me.

(Luckily we have to drive a LOOONG way to find an A&W. Otherwise we'd be in big trouble. Can a chili cheesedog kill you?)

And there was me thinking rained off tennis was just the preserve of Wimbledon!

And I should be going to sleep now but all this talk of food is making me hungry. I'm going to raid my cupboards in a moment.

I am so ecstatic to hear you're writing more PE fics, I'm looking forward to them immensely.

The USTA is so cheap, they'll never put a roof on the stadium. But being in special events, I feel for all the folks who have to deal with the terrible challenge of re-scheduling everything, not to mention the TV producers who try to fill the time with matches from the last two or three decades.

So, now I'm obsessed with the 'sequel' to "Jayee." I hope I make good progress on it today.

FBI hat, cool. I have never played 'fascination', and never even heard of it until you and Charlie mentioned it, at least not that I remember. But then again, I live in southern Illinois.

I know about the food issue. I really enjoy food.

Yeah, I guess we all love food. I wish I didn't come from such a food-obsessed family. Mom always wanted to know what you were going to order when we were on our way out to eat; if she wasn't with you, she wanted to know what you had to eat.

Family holidays were like Roman orgies of food. I always called it "pigs at the trough." It was almost scary.

No wonder I have a love/hate relationship with food. Thank goodness I'm feeling a little nauseous today, or I'd be eating right now.

Nice way to end the summer.

Tennis is not good, right?

*off to the PE fanfic*
