I'm Ba-a-a-a-ack!

Hello, I am back. Things are finally shaping up around here. My house looks like hell after the flood, but it could have worse. I mean, it's not like I needed to be rescued from my roof top by guys in a canoe. But without a basement, my whole lower level got soaked (I even had mulch in my family room) so that's three rooms of carpeting that had to be torn out (and no, I am not replacing it---I'll just have to look at the concrete slab till I can decide what to do). A ton of stuff had to be tossed, but I look on the bright side: if it takes a flood to get me to clean out my house, so be it.

Anyway, I am in a much better mood, and currently working on copy edits for The Unquiet (though I did have to ask for a week's extension, something I've never had to do before). Did you know "meat loaf" is two words? And there's no such thing as a mannikin (duh, Garsee--it's mannequin)...and people show others the sights, not the sites, and...well, you get it. :)

LMAO at myself.

You have mulch in your family? Is this a brother, sister, daughter, son or husband?

As for meatloaf, really? two words? Um, yeah about Mannequin... I knew how to spell that:)

I thought you were spelling it mannikin on purpose.

I distinctly remember looking it up and it was spelled mannikin. So I looked it up now...and it's still spelled mannikin. But copy editor says mannequin. Who am I to argue? :D

Apparently a mannikin is a bird. I wouldn't argue either, lol.

Newsweek actually did a cite/site mixup the other day. (Aside: That mag has gone down hill since Tina Brown got involved.)

But I do believe in meatloaf

I didn't know about the flood! That sounds awful :-( I am so sorry. Glad things are looking up now! *hugs*

Things are looking up...however, at this moment it is pouring rain, there is a lake in my backyard, and the creek is about to overflow. This may be a repeat. BAH!
