Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
Woohoo, I Won!

I won Challenge #5 at my Last Author Standing community! I'm dumbfounded and delighted. You just never know what people will like, and this one was a crossover with one of my fave fandoms, The Dark Knight, so it was a bit chancy. Anyway, I started this story for Challenge #2, but then no crossovers were allowed 'til now, so when I finished it, I worked it out to fit with the prompt, 'Making a Stand.' I won with four votes--and no votes against, for once!

Anyway, great way to top off a great day. We drove to the beach and it was beautiful! Played Fascination (regular games), and I won three in a row. Then a couple games later I got a two-way win, a first in all the years I've been playing. Finally we got kicked out for lack of players. We had pizza and beer next door at Fultano's, then played Scat Cat and Skeeball and Ms. PacMan. Oh, and we walked down to the turnaround on the promenade and watched the sunset.

My only regret was not taking my Shilo Inn giftcard and staying overnight!

Overall, it was lovely--a good day to be alive. (Aren't they all?)

How wonderful that you finally won in your writing. Good for you, and it sounded like the beach trip was really fun. Sure would have liked to have been with you both.

I was very tired from the long drive home. We got to Dot's around nine. I brought all of my stuff in and took a nap until now. I will talk to you tomorrow. Sue

Yep, we had a nice day, even though we left pretty late. We got to sleep a lot, plus have the nice drive.

Glad your tourney went well. You've got a lot of those right now.

And yeah, I'm still enjoying the Last Author Standing thing, both the writing and the reading and feedbacking. I've got to get our own group going again!
