Guess Who Got Home From Work? Plus Our Dehumidifier (woo hoo)

Well, it rained like crazy this evening, during our concert down at the RoZone (in CityFair). I kept saying all day that it wasn't going to rain, but I was wrong. People were getting quite wet. COULD IT PLEASE NOT RAIN TOMORROW (OR FOR THE REST OF THE FESTIVAL RUN)??? PLEASE???

But Marilyn and I only got sprinkled on, because we'd done our stuff in the Park earlier, and were both at the office working on scripts.

GOOD NEWS!!! Marilyn got the first draft of the Coronation script done. Danielle got the first draft of the GFP script done. And I did my first Edit of the Starlight script! I made a hard copy (printed it out) and brought it him to review tonight (I see some red pens, so I'm good to go!), but I don't really expect to see much. I'm just really excited to be almost done with the first of the two scripts I edit each year...

We did got this morning and get our manicures done. But we didn't bother with pedicures (no TIME). We were so grown out! We really needed them done. So now we're ready to face this busy week -- plus to look good for the VIP Party. (We still need to go and buy something to wear, though. Not sure when, but one night this week... The them is Yellow Brick Road -- which people can use any way they want...) I don't know when I last mentioned it, but when your nails get really grown out, it's very hard to do things...

We had Yakisoba noodles today -- plus we got frozen goodies from an ice cream vendor. It's not really a festival until you've had festival food! Hahaha.

Marilyn and I set up the dehumidifier this morning before we left the house. We just opened it up now to see how it was doing and found a huge quantity of water inside! I swear we poured out a bucket full! Wow. We were stunned when we saw it! Good to know it's doing the job we got it for! (woo hoo) Glad we got it and got a good one. We obviously needed it.

Well, off to work on the script and put my feet up -- and have some cold soda to drink. Tomorrow is a very big day (Memorial Day), so hopefully we'll get to sleep at a decent hour tonight...

For those Americans here, have a good Memorial Day tomorrow. We have a wonderful Tribute Tree at CityFair, where people can write on yellow paper tributes to individuals or groups who have served in our military -- and then these are hung from the tree. It's very cool! I haven't done my own, yet. Marilyn did one for Dad, but I want to do my own. And do one for Dad's brother, too... And for Uncle Bob, who was in the Merchant Marines.

Sweet dreams!

Thanksgiving Eve, So to Speak...

We had a nice day today, on the day before Thanksgiving.

Originally Marilyn and I were going to go to Hump's, which is one of our traditions every year. But the weather was nasty and it's a long drive, so we're putting that off until after Thanksgiving, which works for us, too.

We did go to Amalfi's (with sister Sue) where we had a small bite to eat and drinks, as we waited for our pizza, that will be our dinner tomorrow. (Of course, we did end up eating some of it today, which is normal for us, too...)

We bought our pumpkin pie and Cool Whip, so we're all ready for the holiday! (grin) Plus cat food so the kitties are taken care of and a bag of stuffing bread for my crows. I also took out nectar for the hummingbirds, so I guess everyone will have treats tomorrow...

We found out today from neighbor Rose that Teacup (the yellow cat) was killed. Apparently a car RAN OVER him (her?), leaving a TIRE MARK on the poor cat. Who actually drives OVER a cat??? I mean, that sounds so deliberate! Rose told me that Teacup had been pretty much adopted by our neighbors John, Barbara and Jesse -- and the cat spent every day after school lying on Jesse's chest. Jesse is having a hard time with the loss. The actual owners never seemed to care much about that poor (annoying) kitty...

I'm watching Jay Leno as I type this -- really amusing and cool with the all-military audience. Great concept.

Nor did I work on the Christmas card -- so I'll probably need to do that tomorrow...

We watched a movie tonight that we really enjoyed, "Possessed," from 2000. It's about exorcism and was based on a true story (the one which supposedly inspired the movie "The Exorcist"). We're fascinated by exorcism, but to be honest, we wanted to watch this to see actor Henry Czerny (whom we both really love). Both of the main priests were impressive men.

That's the high points of our day. I hope everyone has a great weekend -- and an early Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!!!
