Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Programming

Holy cow. The River of Mnemonsyne challenge at The Tenth Daughter of Memory is over, and I'll be honest: I'm exhausted. Voting is underway amid some fierce competition and I can't wait until the entire process is over.

It's nice to get back to a much less demanding schedule. Mondays and Wednesdays, for the past couple of weeks usurped by the challenge, are now back in the domain of ranting about things that I feel like ranting about (regarding matters of which you likely care not).

Kind of a pity, really, that I can't think of anything to say. My brain is still trying to dump the story I spent so much time on. Ah, well... I'll normalize in a few days, I'm sure.

Random Musings

In addition to Theme Thursday, I've begun participating in another writing group called Magpie Tales. It's a similar group, but uses an image as a prompt, rather than a word. My only hesitation with the group is that the entries are due on Tuesdays, which (if you take a look at my intended posting schedule) pretty much preempts all of my work to one of the two groups. Where am I going with this? Well, in all likelihood, while I will most certainly participate in both, it's probably not going to be on a weekly basis anymore. After all, there's still the normal bi-weekly The Tenth Daughter of Memory to worry about.

I need to travel. Overseas. I haven't for a while and I can feel it. I'm a bit of a wanderer and I don't like staying in one place for too long. I've received invites to Croatia and Morocco. Anybody else feel like offering a couch?

Been enjoying Chuck on NBC and picked up Burn Notice on USA. Love 'em. Also caught Human Target on Fox, and while I'm a huge fan of the comic books, I'm so far unimpressed with the television version. Lost, however, seems to be recapturing some of its old magic.

I find it hilarious that, due to the dominance of the Canadian and American teams, Women's Hockey might cease to be an Olympic sport.

Speaking of the Olympics... anybody else enjoying their fade into irrelevance? Maybe I'll expand on this at another time, but maybe I won't. I think they need to go back to holding the entire Olympics every 4 years, rather than the 2-year rotation between Summer and Winter.

Eh... that's enough from me for today.

  1. Thanks for the meander.
    Do you really think it may be just the IDEA of the Olympic games that are important? I just hope and feel that it really does inspire the younglings to excel with bravery. But then I'm sort of idyllic. -J
    ps. I would offer you a couch, bit we are in the process of moving and there won't be one for a while!

  2. enjoy your travels...i have wanderlust as well...having now lived in the same town for 5 years, i am starting to itch.

    as far as the olympics...it does inspire the young ones, my boys have had fun watching the clips online. there are so many "contests" though that there are other venues to aspire to. not a fan of pros playing in the olympics...

  3. I have a hard enough time just getting a TT post up every week. This 10th Daughter thing was great, but everything else ending up taking a back seat. Time for Dinosaur Hand to make an appearance!

    My couch is always open, but Ft. Wayne is unexciting at best. If you've got the funds, overseas sounds like a hell of lot more fun.

  4. I think you should definitely take advantage of Morocco and Croatia. Which one first?
