Eclipse release and Charlie's b-day~ 
4th-Dec-2010 01:45 am
Just got back from the big WalMart 'event' for the release of Eclipse (stood in a huge, cordoned-off line around the store with a dude dressed in blue talking into a radio about how "everything's going smoothly"). Got to wish charliemc a happy b-day while we were there, hehe. Bought her a copy for her personal dvd player.

So, they had cake and two chicks divvying out dvds from behind a counter. Not quite the same as driving to Forks and going to Dazzled by Twilight's release party, then staying on the rez overnight, which was my original plan. With my schedule this week, it wouldn't have worked.

We managed to stand with a woman who was even geekier than we are . . . yeesh. A huge contingent of Twilight fans are . . . interesting, to say the least.

At least I'm 'caught up' at work--budgets done, credit card reconciled, expense report finished. No, I didn't get my personnel reviews written or the actual meetings scheduled, but I'll get that done next week. I facilitated getting Jeff's contract negotiated and finalized the payroll budget (almost), so that was a huge accomplishment, too. Today I was in meetings from 8:30-4:30 without a break. Luckily I had two latte's hand-delivered from Starbucks. First, the Waterfront chairman brought me a huge double shot at 8:30, the the prez brought me an iced latte' at 11:00. When the parade chairman got there at 3:00, I asked him where my Starbucks was.

I'll do a separate post on the struggle I'm having with my entry in this Last Author Standing Challenge. I have not gotten my inspiration quite yet.

I had to use my 'kissable' Jacob, just because. (heh)

I'm glad they did the line thing at WalMart -- and that we got to talk to others into Twilight while waiting. It was amusing how they did it (that guy on the radio was on a power trip), but at least it was an 'event' that way.

And THANK YOU for my movie!!! Now I'll pack it around to play on my DVD player!!! (grin)

I hope you come up with another awesome Twilight fanfic. I've loved the others...

And you've worked HARD this week -- and I admire you for it! Go, YOU! Wow, did you get a lot done! Way to go...

We'll make time for some FUN this weekend, even with the work we need to do. (Go, US!)

Glad you did that for her birthday. Fun that they had this at Walmart. It would have been too far to make it to Forks.

I hoped that I was sleeping more, but not the last two nights. Oh well some more sleep for me is good. I need to get in and see Dr. Young. Will make an appointment this next week.

Get some rest this week-end and hope to see you sometime.

Yay! Eclipse is out! I have to get my copy...I'm coming down with a cold so I've been out of it. I'm hoping it's just allergies as I sometimes get severe attack that mimic the flu. Blah!!!

Happy birthday to Charlie!!! :D
