Star Wars Weekend~

Been hanging out, doing very little, watching some of the old Star Wars movies on Spike. Despite the annoying commercials, it's been fun. The originals still hold up, although they don't have Ewan as Obi-Wan or Liam as Qui-Gon or Hayden as Anakin . . . maybe that's why I spent more time on the newer trilogy, hehe.

I'm still enjoying The Walking Dead, but it's not nearly as compelling. I guess we can't expect every episode to have the same intensity as the first two. Whew. But it's easy to get annoyed at the human drama. We need these characters to pull together . . . and I need fewer looong, lingering closeups of people saying goodbye to their soon-to-be-zombie loved ones.

I got three votes for and one against this Challenge in my Last Author Standing community. This was another Jacob-centric story, which has turned out to be my favorite subject matter, surprisingly enough. It's hard to believe I've now been participating for more than three months, and there's really no end in sight. I'd say there are at least two or three Challenges to go (I always want to call them Rounds, as opposed to Challenges). I pretty much know the top writers by now, even recognizing their work. I could make a prediction on who's going to win, but I won't.

I hope all my American friends had a fabulous Thanksgiving, and I hope everyone else is staying warm and healthy. I have to say I'm looking forward to the end of 2010. Overall it's been a pretty sucky year.

I hope you enjoyed the down time, but sorry to hear you both were not feeling real good. I had a lot of fun in North Bend, but no good cards. Dot made the only money of our group of three.

Saw lots of friends and visited a lot with Larry Hasset. The room that Mills gave us with one free night was very nice so for two nights it was only $20 each.

Another cribbage person died on Thanksgiving day, but he wasn't one of my close friends.

I am going out to Arch Fitters today to get my new shoes and have some nice ham to give you, so will call later.

I'm actually glad to be getting back to work. I hate being sick and I don't like vacation much, so . . .
