Sneaky Sneaky Somethings

My Muzzy count has been increased quite a bit lately. I think it's all the way up to three or four now. Something else I've noticed is that retailers are going for more of a "soft sell" this year. Maybe it's just not close enough to the actual holiday season yet, but, lately anyway, I've noticed a lot of "Fall Savings" type of catalogs coming my way. Ah, yes, the "Autumn Sale." Sneaky, sneaky, Muzzy. Don't think for one minute that I'm not watching you. It's like Santa in disguise, but I'm still not buying (although it has piled up quite nicely on the table yet again.)

NaNoWriMo is going to start in 8 days. Leaves me with just a little bit of time to try to polish off my plot and finish my character sketches. Oh, who am I kidding? You know I'll never make this. Even so, a girl can dream, right? Ah yes, writing. It's a hobby. Some people like fly fishing, some people knit, I like to spew. I snark things together just for you (well, ok, maybe not. Ah, sneaky, sneaky snark.)

I'm *this* close to pulling the trigger on another TiVo. I don't know why, but I just can't seem to do it. Well, ok, I'm fibbing, I *do* know why. Perhaps, just maybe, it has something to do with American Idol, Lassie Come Home, and a host of other bad reasons, missed re-runs, and movies I'd never want to watch. Harrumph. I wish I could "Add to Cart" a TiVo that actually worked. To Hell with all the whiz bang features, I want one that listens to me and actually records what I tell it to record. Is that too much to ask?

Ok, ok, you've had your fun, now, please, stop laughing already.

Until next time...
