Happy Friday The 13th!  
I don't believe in superstition, and I think 13 is an awesome number (Dave Twardzik's old number, as I recall), and I'm always happy to see Friday arrive! So, let's par-tay, whether in honor of that or the fact that it's karmasoup's birthday. Rock on!

My parents may or may not be coming tomorrow, and staying overnight. If don't see or hear from them around noon tomorrow, we'll know for sure. Somehow, "We'll let you know when we see how it's going" (i.e., whether they were too sick to make the trip) tends to become, "Oh, we decided to wait" OR "We'll be at your place in an hour." No way of knowing which until we hear from them or they show up at the door. *sigh*

I'm hoping they delay a week, so I can beat back the chaos in the house. We've either been busy or gone, so the clutter-tide is rising. I still haven't finished my taxes yet, since I can't figure out what to do about the random stock sale and cost/loss basis. I might just take it all as profit—it's $90. It's too hard to unsnarl the past 19 years of stock-split/forking-off-new-company/selling-new-company to designate a purchase-price for those shares. But for the future, I think I DO need to sell that "problem" stock, and also to stop reinvesting dividends, since that just complicates things down the road. :(

We finished S2 of Justified. I loved Margo Martindale as Mags Bennet—I've had a weak spot for her since The Riches. As for Raylan, well... he's being a complete idiot, regarding romance. No spoilers, just the facts: when someone doesn't appear to even like you, and doesen't treat you well, don't take up with them. Especially more than once. Yeesh!

Any plans for the weekend (besides taxes)? We'll have sunny weather, after a week of rain, so I'm hoping to do some yardwork and other tidying. Not exciting, but satisfying.

Hi, Rosie!

No, I still don't know. We'll call tonight, but if we don't reach them that won't tell us anything. You won't be surprised to hear that my Dad has a cell phone, but refuses to share the number as it is only "for him to call out from." Not that he has any compunctions about calling OUR cellphone when we're traveling and he wants to know OUR plans. Gah!

Justified is definitely worth watching! It might take you 4-5 episodes to get hooked, but it's a very character-driven show and there are a lot of great character actors in the cast. Plus, Timothy Olyphant is very easy on the eyes. ;)

How's your autumn going? Or does it still feel like summer? We're getting weekly deluges now, so it feels like winter here (except that this weekend will be nice). I'm hoping this won't go like last year, where it was winter every weekend until the end of June. :0

LOL. Yeah, I'm not surprised. Oh, and you still don't know. I hope you find out soon. It's like putting your own plans on hold, even if you don't have much to do.

Autumn is beautiful here, thanks lady. Hope you get more of a springtime, then. It's really hard to jump straight into the extreme seasons, isn't it? Body doesn't get a chance to get used to things.

Regarding this sentence: Haven't watched it, but hope to replicate that soon Jeez. I meant that I hope to remedy not replicate, but I'm SO glad you had the capacity to interpret my word misuse *g*. Aussies! We don't know our Ps from our Qs.

Will follow up Justified for sure and let you know. Just watching The Good Wife atm and really enjoying it.
