Good Lord - how long have I been away?
Sorry, guys - I had to completely cut out LJ while I was moving and organizing my house, or I would never have gotten everything done. What have I been up to? Quick re-cap:

- The house is small, but great, and it's helping me cut down on things and simplify my life
- My mom was a great help, and we got along... well, every other day we did - *G*
- Loved the new James Bond movie!
- Got a FOOT of snow last Friday, and it's going to be around for a while - they predict at least a week of temperatures below freezing
- And, most importantly...

I have no idea what's been happening with everybody for the last 2 weeks!

Between catching up on work and organizing the house, there's just no way I can catch up on my f-list without literally spending a day doing so.

If it's okay, could you let me know how you're doing, what I've missed in your life, and anything important going on in fandom?

(p.s. Just so you know, I did hear about - and order - a Beecake t-shirt, and I know that PJ is no longer going to be directing "The Hobbit" - rats! Aaaaaaaaand... that's about it! Oh, and why didn't I know that last week's "Heroes" was NOT the cliffhanger - tonight's was? Eeeek!))

! That's right - they're local, aren't they?

Thanks - I think they're great guys, but I didn't get into their music. Glad they're doing so well, though!

I've got your mail but I think I can't mail anything before christmas. I had not only to cut down my LJ time but also a lot of RL activities because of my tight schedule.

Snow? You have snow and it is freezing? *shudder* - I hate snow and I'm glad that right now the temperature outside feels like spring ;)

*L*! Come on, snow is pretty! And it's better than freezing rain any day.

Say, I think I may have missed it if you posted pics from RingCon, and/or if you wrote up your whole experience. Did you? Can you point me there? And did you end up writing an article about it?

As usual, nothing terrible exciting from me. I am currently crushing on John Lydon (Johnny Rotten from the Sex Pistols). I don't know how these things happen. His autobiography is a fascinating read though...

We still have barely a dusting of snow here. *sigh*

Ooooo...!

Wait - I thought Wisconsin got even more than we did - or are you being a bit sarcastic? *G*

Whatever happened about the job you were looking at? I seem to remember that the possibility of it came up again and you were conflicted about it?

Glad to hear you are getting settled. Too bad about the snow though. *shivers*

Ooooo.... Wilson!

Tell me, tell me - what have you thought about the last few episodes? And, of course, the dramatic episode last week!

Is this week's new or a repeat? I can't remember.

I got a flu shot and my arm hurts. Woe. (I definitely could use more excitement in my life.)

But welcome back!

Hey, be careful what you wish for! I mean... it would be exciting for your arm to turn bright orange, right? *G* NOT a good thing, even if it would be exciting! I recommend just going to see the James Bond and experience the excitement vicariously.

Thanks!

THAT'S what's on Dec. 8!!! I knew there was something! Hopefully I can come - thanks so much for reminding me!

I think I was down for cookies; should I stick with that, or is there something else you would want me to bring?

She LIVES!!! Happy to hear you're moved in and all. Hope to see you maybe before the next Starved Rock Moot?

And now we wait until January 22nd to find out what happens on Heroes.

I know!!!! I mean... Peter BLOWS UP?!?! Knowing him, I think he'd throw himself off a building to prevent it.

And how exactly is Sylar absorbing the powers? I assume it's by eating the brains - but would that work for anybody? or is it something special about him that allows him to absorb the powers that way?

Or... are the powers really... a virus of the brain, like mad cow disease, that you only catch by eating brains??? Now THAT'S an idea! (ick)

As to PJ and 'the Hobbit'...there is still hope :) I posted a link last week I think on my LJ, you might be interested: http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/0,2106,3883414a1860,00.html

So did you order that Beecake shirt? I would have loved to, except that it was a little out of my price range, and i'm sure they will all be gone by the time I do get the money. Guess i'll have to wait and see if they put out anymore - maybe when they tour the US. *crosses fingers*

You mean, am I insane? I think we all know the answer to that - *L*! Of course. It was cute, and it was Billy's band, so I couldn't resist. And, for me, it wasn't as much of a price stretch.
