"You'll poke your eye out" and Re the next chapter of "In Search of Bigfoot"  
Hi all!

Happy December!

I will get to all the comments I received on part 1 of "In Search of...Bigfoot" tonight. I am almost ready to post the final part.

There's actually a funny little joke that goes with this...

*giggles even though it's so not funny*

You've heard that old saying, "be careful or you'll poke your eye out?"

Well, it fucking hurts when you poke your eye out!!!! I know, because I did it like an idiot the other night.

Now my left eye has a broken blood vessel swimming through it and people are grossed out whenever they look at me. The hazel part of my eye is all glowy so that along with the red (yes, that's blood red - when my eyes tear up, it looks like my eye is bleeding) makes me look like some kind of non-human weird...thing...alien...I dunno.

And it hurts!!!

Also, since reading doylebaby's A Dangerous Job, I've been in the mood for some Hoot/Todd slash. Any recs out there?

And thank you jackieville for the pretty Christmas card. Yours is the first and it made me all warm and fuzzy.

And the fuzziness made me want to itch my bad eye. LOL!

Which reminds me, if there is anyone who would like a Christmas card from me, send me a line at dementedqueen@gmail.com. If you sent me an addy last year, you need not this year.

In lieu of a card, you may request a drabble or short short ficlet based on any pairing you wish, or based on one of my icons.

That is all citizens...you may now resume your programming.

*hugs you back*

We had a great time in Dis and So Cal was a heck of a lot warmer than here!!! We had decent weather, occasionally overcast and not too hot (mid to high 60's), not too cold (low 50's to high 40's at night). Despite the fact that hubby and I both picked up minor colds, we really did enjoy every minute of it!

Well, every minute but the flight down, that is! Our plane left at 6:30 in the morning and was supposed to land in Anaheim around 9:15. Well, THAT didn't happen! There was SO MUCH fog that we wound up circling John Wayne for more than an hour, then when we finally tried to land, the pilot overshot the runway and nearly hit a bunch of trees, so up we went again! And I mean SHARPLY up!!! At that point we circled a few more times and then were rerouted to Ontario (Cal., not Can.) for refueling. Well, we circled Ontario for another half hour then finally managed to land without incident. We sat there for OVER AN HOUR, waiting to refuel. We finally took off and then circled John Wayne for ANOTHER 45 minutes before landing! At this point, we were so backed up behind multiple planes that it took ANOTHER hour on top of that to taxi to the gate so we could disembark! Imagine all that, with a screaming baby and a fussy six year old in the two seats ahead of you! Sheesh, it was the plane trip from hell!

Luckily, the trip home was MUCH calmer and I'm glad to be back! I missed all my LJ friends and man, was there a lot of fic written during my absense! It's taken me all day to get caught up!

I'll be posting Chapter 3 of 'No Other Choice' over on Orlibean sometime tomorrow, if you get a chance to take a break! I know what a CRAZY schedule you keep though, so absolutely NO pressure! Just thought I'd let you know it's out there.

*more love-&-hugs coming your way*

Oh wow! Well, what's a vacation without something going wrong? Sounds like fun though. And ah how I remember Decembers in the 60's and 70's (and 80's too).

I am going to catch up with your last 2 chapters - that email sent me for a loop PLUS I've been working LOTS of hours at the shop. Whew! The eye is better though. :)

*lavishes you with hugs*

Hi Maria!

It's good to hear from you! What with everything you've been going through lately, I've been rather worried about you, sweetie! Don't stress about getting caught up with my fic. You definitely have enough on your plate as it is! Stupid troll! *kicks him/her/it viciously* It's no wonder you were thrown for a loop! *cuddles Maria protectively* You just take of yourself, hon, and make sure you don't push too hard! Oh, and it's good to know that your eye is better! *cheers for you*

Mmmmm! *revels in lovely hugs and clings to you tightly*
