For two days in a row there has been a red-tailed hawk perched on the very top of the steeple of the LDS church that stands just south of Oak on 40th Street.
I coughed up the bucks and bought a Bissell Little Green carpet cleaner. I think it will eventually be a much better buy than endless cans of Resolve, considering the barfing of certain cats.
I was about to swoop in and bid in a set of copper jewelry (which included the exact chain I wanted) but eBay informed me I wasn't a member of Paypal(!). By the time I'd logged into my Paypal account, too, the auction was over. Growl. So I shopped around and am now watching a couple of other auctions (including a few which have nothing to do with copper chains, like the really awesome Megalodon tooth necklace and the black pearl solitaire...).
I'm not sure which of the two stories I have lounging around in my head that I'm going to do for NaNo. I have a vague idea about magic and mayhem in the Arizona mountains or more vampire fun in the Caribbean. the former is probably a better overall "saleable" tale, although I think it'll land as YA if I finish it.
