Today's bike ride proves that denial only goes so far. I was certain it would not actually rain, or at worst just sprinkle a little. Hah! And why does this always happen when I'm at least 4 miles from the finish?

This Tuesday, we were still birthdaying past 8:00 and I didn't even check to see whether Glee was on. Was it? Or did it get pre-empted by the baseball playoffs? Similar question for those of you not on the East or West Coast, regarding last night's Fringe. I made sure we watched last week's via Hulu, and was all ready at 9pm only to encounter an endless marathon of 2 1/2 Men. Did Fringe actually air?

Halloween-wise, I've gotten some of the decorations up, but there's a lot left to do. Looks like I lost a string of purple bat lights and one of mini-pumpkins since last year. Argh! That whole "If one dies, the others stay lit" thing is pure bull. I have never yet rescued a dead light strand with changed fuses OR by fixing an individual light. *sad face* I've only had those bats for a year or two...

This weekend, I'll try to catch up with everything that got suspended due to Wincon. But most likely, I'll be running around trying to get Christopher packed for Outdoor School instead. Shouldn't be too bad-- this will be his 4th time. But he's been having trouble with randomly throwing up, to the point where he's already missed 4 days of school (spread out over 3 weeks) and we decided he was going to have to go anyway on days he's thrown up (which we normally would never do). So I hope that either his stomach behaves, or he's able to talk the instructors out of panic if it doesn't. Never thought we'd find ourselves in this boat...

ETA: [profile] eponin10 assures me that I've missed nothing, Glee or Fringe-wise. Yay!

No Glee. No Fringe. :( Glee next week. Fringe not until Nov.

Fringe not until Nov.


That's the kind of thing that leads my husband to think it's being cancelled, which would seriously sadden me. :(

Though last week's episode seemed a good hiatus point. God, the reveal on robot-like beings (and their unexpected complexity) was awesome.

Well, I'm actually glad that I'm not two shows more behind now. Seeing as I'm 3 behind on Chuck and 3-4 on The Mentalist already. *cringes*

First week of Nov. :) So we get like, 2 weeks off. I'm guessing it's been preempted for baseball for the moment. Someone posted a link to previews for upcoming episodes, so it's not been canceled.

Oh yes-- I suddenly remember the days when the X-Files used to get delayed until after November for that same reason (and Prison Break/House would be suspended).

I feel better now. ;) And am apparently not in touch with my inner calendar...

Well, there was Wincon last weekend. I seem to be out of touch with everything at the moment. :D Of course, that could be the sleep deprivation and my car trying to kill me talking.

Yes, I saw that post. Holy cow! I'm glad you and Roo are all right!

Me too! It was scary.

Why's he throwing up? What's the doc say?

Haven't asked yet. It started the first week of school, with a problem on a Wednesday and then a Friday. We assumed that it was a stomach thing, and was over.

Very surprised to have it back again last Monday and Wednesday.

Could be nervousness over school & the social changes of being in Junior High.
