colin - blah: charliemc

Another working Saturday~

Worked from 8:00am-3:00pm without a break today. It was Nominating Saturday, and it was a pretty annoying day for me, overall. (Thank God Charlie came in and volunteered, or my head would have popped.) 'Nuff said. Then we went and got a new TV for my bathroom, but then found out that cable isn't working. Considering we found out when we got the new dishwasher that the old one was screwed up by a mistake made when the garbage disposal was installed, I'm starting to get a little fatalistic about all this stuff. At least we managed to find a relatively inexpensive little TV (*not* flatscreen HD, which I certainly don't need in the bathroom).

So both Nadal and Federer went out in Madrid today! I guess that's a pretty definitive way of avoiding another clash in a big final. Disappointing, to say the least. But I guess Rafa has the year-end #1 ranking sewed up. (Why does it still seem strange to hear Federer referred to as 'World Number 2'?)

I don't feel too inspired to write my Prestige story, at least not today. And stuff over at the Batman drabble community continues to be troubling. Luckily I've got some new places to play, so I think I'll concentrate any writing time I have on that.

And I need to get serious if I want to do Sarah Palin for Halloween. I'll need a wig and glasses, and I need to get a McCain/Palin button somewhere. Shudder! I could always spray my hair, but I'm always worried about the stuff washing out after. And, of course, I'll need to start practicing the voice. Luckily the VP debate is On Demand.
