Of course, it's going to be a very looooonnnnnnggggggg Friday - but hey, it's still here! I have a breakfast meeting this morning, finish seven company software migrations today, then drive back to Philly and catch a flight home. Yea! I should arrive in Dallas around 9:30. So my day started at 6:00 and will end about 10:30 (have to pick up baggage and drive home after landing). And that's if everything goes well, so cross your fingers that American Airlines doesn't lose their minds again and anything of the sort. If you have the time, you could also throw in an extra crossed appendage that my first class upgrade gets approved. :)

No weigh in today - I'm kinda not at home with my scale. And the pages were sorta dismal this week too, although I did get another chapter edited and out for review. Yeah! In fact, now that I'm thinking about it, I don't know if I'll be weighing in next week either since mom will be cooking every manner of good fattening food for Thanksgiving and I will be doing my absolute best to cut down on leftovers. It's my family duty, after all. :)

What's everyone else doing for the holidays? If you work, do you have Friday off? I do and plan to write my arse off.

By the way, I haven't forgotten the Madlibs, but two of you refuse to follow up on my blog and give me the missing information. I want you to know (Tammy & Colleen) I have your private emails (and in one case your phone number) and I WILL collect.


Colleen Gleason said...

LOL. Okay, I posted the Madlibs info further down.

As for the new edited chapter...I assume you mean chapter five, which I DON'T have in my email box yet.
(Of cousre, I haven't read chapter four yet, but sending on a new one is a good way to get me to read an older one...)

And don't feel bad about Tammy ignoring the Madlibs. She hardly ever checks my blog, so you ought to be happy she at least posted on yours.

*evil grin*

I don't think one should try to lose weight during the holidays. Too much good food to make the attempt, IMO. :) Plenty of time for that after the first of the year!

Nothing special going on at our house as far as I know. My parents do tend to forget to tell me things, though, so who knows? *g*

Tammy Kearly said...

Hey - I check your blog every day, Colleen. And yours too, Jana! Along with Kristin Nelson's, they're the only 3 that I'm faithful to.
(although I guess I missed the AdLib redux entry - I'm chagrinned).

Adjective: Snarky (that's for you, Colleen!)
Noun: Desk (because that's where my imagination is right now - all I can do is look down and see something!)

And yes, I have Friday off to (first time for that) and am planning on hibernating and trying to write my arse off too.

Hi guys, sorry I dropped off on Friday. I had to dash from training at 3:00 and head to airport (which did not have a working internet connection) and didn't arrive home until about 10:30pm. I am the tired!

I will get Madlibs updated sometime this coming week.

Tori - I think I'm with you. I won't blow it the entire holidays, but dieting on Thanksgiving day is probably a big waste of time.

Tammy - Here's hoping for a great day of productivity!

How surprising you are. Little did I know the young woman whos graduation gown I pressed would end up such an accomplished writter. Your grandfather Morris would be so proud of you and your accomplishments. I'm looking forward to getting an autographed copy of your new book. Good luck,
