It occurred to me just now that the moss photo
I posted the other day totally needed a TeenyTinyTARDIS in it. Missed opportunity. (I need to take some more TeenyTinyTARDIS pics.)
Yesterday was springlike, so today, we're expecting a winter storm that could give us the great gift of six inches of snow. I'm so excited! Oh, no, wait, I mean the other thing. :-\ I feel like when I go out for groceries, I need to stock up on popcorn and movies. (Forget toilet paper, bread, and eggs. Well, no, don't forget them, as they're part of my regular grocery list, but you know what I mean.)
I have packages that need to go to the post office today, but I suspect they're not going to make it. More shoes to return. I do
wish I could find some shoes that my feet and legs could tolerate. This gets ridiculous. Nothing I try, not even the expensive wonderful stuff works. And I definitely need to find something I can live in before next summer!
My Cornelian scroll has been completed and signed. A friend has it for delivery; I may get it this weekend. She was going to drop it off last night, but there was only a narrow window when I was home, and it was pouring, so we both agreed that it should wait until it was dry out. (Though if it's in a case, and since she's a scribe, I'm sure it is....) She told me that some guy had been harrassing someone at Kingdom about getting it signed because our little shire is about to be no more. But it wasn't the current seneschal (my friend asked the other local folks who were there; she's the sort of person who would do that -- Hey, were you the one who....), and if the someone at Kingdom (I know the name, but not her exact function) knew who the person harrassing her was, she declined to say. I can't think of any other guys in the shire who'd've been at Ice Dragon who would know enough about what goes on here to push for getting scrolls signed.
If it was anyone, it should've been someone at Kingdom who has noticed that all of our reports have been...not
. I'm still getting emails about the exchequer's report being overdue.
Eh, doesn't matter. I'm not in charge anymore, though clearly stepping down was a mistake. I should've let it go to election, rather than trying not to step on anyone's delicate flowery toes.
There is a new LJI topic up, and it's one that should appeal to me. And I do have some ideas, but I won't even think about sitting down to write until probably tomorrow morning. Too much to do on Saturdays. I'm still trying to figure out, though, what the differences between the previous two entries were. The first week, I was solidly in the middle of the voting, but last week, I was in some danger of getting dropped. I don't expect to go very far, mind, because I know my writing's not brilliant. Or, at least, not often
brilliant. But I can't figure out what makes people vote and what doesn't. I don't hang out in the Green Rooms; I don't have time for that. Maybe that's part of it; there's always a bit of a popularity factor with these things. Eh, well. I'm thinking of bringing back Thorn HoneyWhistle, Fairy Tale Caseworker Extraordinaire. Or doing something on our visit to Verrazano Castle during the Italy trip.
But right now, I need to go get groceries, I guess, before everyone else. (And they'd better have registers open at WickedMart this week, or I will
just leave my cart in the middle of the floor and walk out!)
