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!
