It's all java_fiend's fault...  


What now?

I don't even have clown-phobia, but Java's current evil-baby-clown icon is getting to me!

So, it's a beautiful Saturday day here, nice weather, big sewing pile waiting and an endless todo list for the yard. What's on my actual agenda, besides returning books at the library (and getting a new alarm clock that doesn't "click" and keep me awake at night)? Writing my Idol story, which is an Intersection again (just to make it doubly hard). Gah!

I did post the "extra" story from last week's Idol prompt, but nobody's read it. Try it out! At least it's short...

How is it nearly the end of April already? Seems like it took forever to finally escape March...

I voted creepy. :) I like java's icon, lol.

Yay for being a pretty day there!

I have plans to read the story. I just managed to stress myself out trying to comment on Idol entries, reply to comments on my journal, and keep up with my friends list and comment on their entries, and replying to PMs and emails. I needed some time to myself.

Good luck with this week's entry! I've got get started on mine too - I have an awesome partner and I like our idea. :)

But do you like it BECAUSE it's creepy? Because I can't see any other way to interpret it. :0

My entry is coming sloooowly (couldn't stay awake last night), so I think I should give into my Spring Fever and go run some errands for a bit. And probably buy plants that I will in no way get into a pot or into the ground by Monday. Because that's how I roll! \o?

Oh yes. I like creepy things. :)

So how did you do with the plants? Also I loved your entry! Already commented. Off to read the other story now. :)

The plants went much the same as last weekend, kind of for the same reason. I got involved in pruning/weeding, and then started to get overheated and run out of time before getting to the main task: digging holes for my tomato plants, and improving their stupid dirt by getting the rocks out. I need to remind myself that just because I bought a six-pack of cherry tomatoes doesn't mean I have to plant all six. Three would be good!

I'd love to dodge the dirt issue, but I've had year after year of "marble marvel" results instead of cherry-sized tomatoes, so it's time to face reality. Last year, I planted at least one Roma plant, and all my tomatoes were still in the pea to blueberry range. :0
