So amused.
You know the phone post that I mentioned a post or so back that I said didn't post? BAM! There it is, two (three?) days later! So, hey, now you guys can actually hear me freak out about possibly dying! Or, well, just read it, since niennah was kind enough to transcribe it!

Also? I wanted to shout out a thank you to everyone who took the time to comment and/or vote in my poll! You guys ROCK. I think I'm going to go with the majority on this one and wrap gifts under the tree and not the ones in the stocking. Of course, if I get Ares a cat bed like I've been thinking about (or some variation of the cat bed), I'm not so sure that'll be that easy to wrap, so I'll likely just hide it in my room somewhere.

Oh! Speaking of Ares' stocking! I wanted to get him bouncy balls for it (my last cat went NUTS over them), but since they're hard to find outside of buying them with tickets at video game stops, I decided to do just that! I went to Boondocks, got a dollar in tokens, and went about wasting 75 cents in a span of about seven minutes with only 8 tickets to show for my efforts. (Though I can't really blame coldfury for his *cough* sad *cough* attempt at Skee Ball (he won two tickets) since I played this bastard pirate game that gave me NO tickets) Anyway, so I was at a loss of how to get a few more tickets to go into my cat's bouncy ball fund. But then I decided to go for broke and plop my last token into the whirly machine that's got three colors of slots. ... That is, you choose a color, this light whirls around in a circle, and you have to push the button at juuuust the right time to get the bonus jackpot (which in this case, was 78 tickets).

Let me just say that I've tried to win the bonus on this damn game for YEARS. I'd tap my foot to a rhythm to try to know just when to push the button, but I'd always be a second too fast or slow. But last night? I decided, screw it, I'm gonna just push it when it FEELS right! That is, I pushed it the first time the light thingy headed my way. And BAM! Bonus for Summer! My eyes bugged out, my jaw dropped, and I proceeded to stare at the machine for a few seconds dumbly. coldfury thought I was just "that good" at the game. Of course, he realized different after I started bouncing up and down and yelling out "I WON! I WON THE BONUS, HOLY SHIT!" And then I did a little dance when all the tickets began pouring out of the machine.

... Could you imagine me if I won the lottery?

Needless to say, I was able to buy Ares several bouncy balls, and coldfury got four Tootsie Rolls for being my good luck charm. ... And also as a reward for having to listen to me in the car on the way home stating every five seconds that I won the bonus.

One more time for the road though?

I WON THE BONUS! I ROCK!

Okay, I'm off to goof off for an hour and then I shall write until I drop! Today's the day I shall finish you, novel! *Poses dramatically*

Yeah I transcribed that! It was funny. I've never done that before. I didn't know whether to put the 'um's in or not, so I just did. :)

*Snicker* Well, I do 'umm' a lot! At least, when it comes to message machines and phone posts! Most people transcribe those, so you're good! ^_^

Hee. So, you're telling me I should have brought you with me to Boondocks to get me lots of tickets instead of coldfury? ^_~

Hi, I was just seeing how your NaNo was going. I'm jealous! :) Things have been crazy and I haven't been able to go to the meetings and barely wrote anything.

I'm getting ready for another issue of my ezine in a few weeks if you're interested in submitting something.

Well, hi! Yes, Nano has been going good. I wound up having plans come up suddenly, so I still have the ending to do tomorrow, but I'm very close.

Sorry I haven't emailed you yet! I've been SWAMPED. I'll have to check out your ezine! The email address is on the card you sent me, yes?

Hi! LJ ate this comment notification, so I didn't see you wrote back. I saw on the site that you won. Good job!

Yep, my email address is on there. The ezine looks like it's not dead, hurray! It's just hard sometimes to get enough stories for a whole issue. I had to pad out the first one badly with my old stuff.

No prob, LJ's been doing that to everyone of late! And thank you! ^_^

I STILL haven't had a chance to check out your site and email you. SO. SORRY. A couple posts ago I mentioned needing a clone with how busy I am! Anyway, I'll try to get to it by this weekend or next. *Falls over in exhaustion*

No problem. This is a crazy time of year. I wish I'd done better with NaNo, but it's been one thing after another!
