aka: My Sticky Post

Yay! It worked! :D

Watch this space...

Ok, most of you probably know me as samtyr from over at elJ. I tried to use the same name here but when I was first setting this up, one of my cats unplugged my computer. And since I was a beginner w/o anyone to ask for help, I had to alter my name a little. My default icon (whom I call zen cat) has remained the same though. ZC is my first icon and I strongly doubt I will ever get rid of her.

I'll probably add more to this later on.

If you have a different screen name here, please pm me and let me know what it is. Thank you!

You are walking in the woods and the moon is shining. suddenly you realise there is something carved on stone and you realise it's this door.

Where would this door lead?

What character is waiting for you on the other said to show you the land and of course share an adventure with?

It seems that I have done something to mess up my back. I probably did it Monday, when I hauled two oversized plastic totes out to the garage to be gone through. Not my brightest idea but they have been sitting in front of an old deep freeze that needs to be gone for several years now and I just decided "oh, just do it and get it done, silly."

So I did, and ever since yesterday my back has been twitching like crazy. Yes, it hurts. No, I'm not going to the dr. because it is almost Labor Day weekend and with some muscle relaxers I have, I can make it till Tuesday. But I won't be able to drive much. Oh well. If I sit really still and keep my back straight -- especially when I go to get up -- it doesn't hurt too bad either. Maybe this means I will get some writing done. Perhaps.

Anyway, if I'm not posting much or seem to have disappeared, that is probably the reason why. Take care everyone and for those of you in the US, enjoy the long weekend.

The colors the National Weather Service uses to show rainfall on its weather map couldn't represent the deluge in southeastern Texas, so the NWS added two more purple shades to its map. The old scale topped out at more than 15 inches; the new limit tops 30 inches.

The move came as forecasters warn of continued flood dangers and continue to update precipitation totals from what the NWS is calling "unprecedented" rainfall from Tropical Storm Harvey, which made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane late Friday.

Yeah, it's been kinda like that.
la_samtyr: sunset (sunset)
Today is the big eclipse! For once, I get to see 'something cool' because it's going to be right over my house! I get to watch it in my yard, for free! No driving anywhere or anything! :D

Right now it's really quiet out, so I imagine most people are either at one of the museums or something; Hastings has an observatory too and that was sold out months ago.

So wherever you are, I hope you get a chance to see it, or at least part of it. If nothing else, you can always watch the NASA feed online. Enjoy!

Back from vacation! I had a great time and lots of fun! I'll post more later; right now I'm busy sorting through mail and paying bills, receiving head bumps from my oldest cat while the now-big kittens are crawling all over me and my little Chi-man is reading his head on my foot and sleeping.

Ok, everyone!

Starting tomorrow, I will be gone on vacation for about 2 weeks. Since any internet connections will probably be iffy, I won't be updating until I get back.

Wishing all of you happy birthdays, anniversaries, etc. and I will *try* to play catch-up when I get back.

Take care, everyone!
