It's Saturday-ay-ay-ay-uh-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-heeeee!  
(Apologies for random Marcy Playground, and that's not even one of the songs I particularly like.)

So, the Oregon Ducks are playing right now, but I can only catch the score updates because it's being shown on the "Pac12 Network." That is an "extra" cable channel that ESPN sells certain games to after buying up all the broadcast rights to make it hard for network TV stations to air the games. A cable channel we don't get, obviously. Go Ducks!

I'm finishing reading up all the Idol entries, because I think voting is due around 8pm EDT today (no, Monday, thank goodness). My entry is here, and this was the first Intersection of the season, so I partnered with my husband, rayaso, whose entry is terrific. I may take a 'bye' for this next round, since I'm behind on getting actual stuff done at home, but my husband is already madly working on what looks like something evilly hilarios, as usual. :D

I've heard this rumor that winter is coming early to certain parts of North America? It's more brutally hot this week than last in Sacramento. We've been pushing 100-degrees these last few days, and yesterday's bike ride wiped me out for the rest of the day. No major outside time planned today, but I'll try to ride early tomorrow and maybe get some yardwork in. That last part will depend on how the ride goes. Ulhhhh. I ran on Wednesday morning, after skipping last week (raw spot on the heel from hiking at Yosemite the weekend before). Argh! One of the reasons I try to run at least once a week is to keep my feet in shape, by which I mean... not letting the callouses heal enough that I get blisters. Stupid blisters! Now I'm sporting bandaids. :(

So, weekend plans? In nicer weather than here? :O

Is saturday at the gym? Plus, tutoring sounds like a good way to pick up extra money. :D

i think lj idol voting ends on monday.

we don't have winter here yet, but today it actually felt kind of like fall. which, yay? summer is not my favorite season (it's hot!) but i'm not 100% sure i want to see fall yet.

my plans for the rest of the weekend (ie, sunday :D ) involve sleeping late and going grocery shopping. ooh, exciting.

I love fall, but it barely happens here. It seems like summer forever, and gradually plants die. Around early November, the temps might cool off. o_O

You're right about Monday! I only have six more authors to read, though, so I'll make it. :D

I worked yesterday, today, and I'm working all day tomorrow :p

Housemate E is returning sometime tomorrow...she's driving up from MD and said she'd be on her way as soon as she packs her car. Given she's got a RAV4, I'm thinking she can't be taking a LOT, you know? Oh, and her husband's transfer up here came through. He starts here in 2 weeks, so in the meantime he's got to close up their house down there, pack his stuff, and come up here. Where are they going to put everything?!?!?

Meanwhile we've been looking after Violet Dog. She's adorable. We took her and Max on a long walk this afternoon and SO had her heeling within seconds. I don't know how E is going to feel about that :erk:

Oh, and I'm off Monday. I am so painfully behind in reading it isn't funny.

Where are they going to put everything?!?!?
Where are they going to put themselves? Are they BOTH going to be at your place?!? o_O

Well, I have two words: storage locker.

Off Monday, finally! Are you having more days off during the week, in the last month or so? It seems like you're working a lot of weekends (and just, a lot of days in general).
