Sports: The good, the bad, the ugly…OSU won. Twice. Which is the good and the ugly. 😉 The REAL OSU–as in Oklahoma State Cowboys–beat Pittsburgh. It was a close game but way better than the outcome last week when the guys in the striped shirts totally screwed us out of a win. No really. They did. It’s all official that they did. So that’s the bad. Instead of 3-0, the Pokes are 2-1. Now the ugly OSU–as in Ohio State–beat the socks off OU. Yeah. Sadness. In other sporting news, the Cardinals split the 4-game series with the SF Giants are are now one game behind them for the second Wild Card slot.
Writing: Yeah…about that. This dystopian anthology story I’m working on? Well, two actually… Yeah. The characters are really pissin’ me off. Just when I think I know them and their story they get all freaky stubborn and refuse to speak. So I’m behind. I’m working on that today. I was convinced I’d have them both done over the weekend. Yeah…not so much. And now, I have the opening for a story that isn’t even on my horizon niggling at me. I’ll have to break down and write the scene floating in my head just so I can get on with other things. I feel like Harry Potter with that weird wand thingy that pulls out memories and stores them. I have to pull out those random scenes, write them, and store them so I can move on.
Reading: LovedLovedLOVED our own B.E.’s UP WISH CREKK. It’s always so much fun to play in Jo’s world with her crazy band of Scoobie Djinn. 😉 Y’all should read it. I also tumbled into a YA fantasy series–HEX HALL by Rachel Hawkins. It’s a lot of fun (says the reader who has a fairly strong dislike for YA anything!) There’s a trilogy and then a follow-on book about the main characters cousin. By the time y’all read this, I’ll likely be finished with SCHOOL SPIRITS. Then I think I’m going dark. Maybe that will help with the dystopian.
TV: NEW SEASONS STARTING! Just in case y’all weren’t aware. 😆 New season of LUCIFER tonight. NCIS (Tony, we’re gonna miss you) on Tuesday. Other new shows I’m going to check out: DESIGNATED SURVIVOR with Keifer Sutherland (the Sec. of Agriculture is in the bunker when the Capitol is bombed during a State of the Union address); PITCH (first female to make it to the MLB and as a pitcher no less, though I’m watching for the guy who plays the catcher. 😉 ); MACGYVER (well, because MacGyver!); and LETHAL WEAPON (because the teasers looked…interesting.) I think there might be some other shows out there but I don’t have them marked to watch.
So…that’s pretty much my life to date. Exciting right? Sh’up. Y’all can stop laughing now. What about you? What are you looking forward to watching, reading, writing, and did your teams win?
