Frequently Asked Questions (last updated September 24, 2013)

Winter doesn't even officially start for another month and I'm ready for it to be over.  CURSE YOU! 

The seven inches of snow we got last week has been very slowly melting, then refreezing at night.  This has the unfortunate side effect of making driving anywhere extremely treacherous, and the fact that they seem to pick which roads get plowed at complete random doesn't help.  It's weird that the country road we live on gets swept clean while some of the busiest roads in the city are left untouched.  I'm sure there's some kind of policy they use to determine which roads to clear, but I'll be danged if I know how they decide.

Anyhow, yesterday I took Chi Chi to the vet -- we finally decided it was high time to get him neutered.  I had to go down one of the busiest roads in the city to get to the vet's office... and of course it still had huge patches of ice and hardened snow on it.  And on the way there I hit a slick patch, spun 180 degrees, and hit the curb.  :ohnoes:

Looking back, I know I was extraordinarily lucky that I didn't total the car or hurt myself (or the dog, who will probably never get into the car with me again thanks to this incident and dragging him to the vet).  There happened to be a break in oncoming traffic when I spun out, so I wasn't hit by another vehicle, and I managed not to roll or flip Motormaster.  Still, I was pretty shaken and highly embarrassed... and pretty annoyed when I examined the car and found I'd knocked a chuck out of the tire rim.  I managed to get the car turned back around, get Chi Chi to the vet, and make my slow and careful way to a tire store to have them look Motormaster over and make sure he was still safe to drive.

Not only did I need a new rim for the tire, but apparently my front tires were badly worn and needed replacing -- probably part of the reason I spun out in the first place, if the tires were bald enough to lose traction that fast.  That, and they didn't have the right rim for Motormaster and had to get one driven in from another store.  I ended up waiting for THREE HOURS before they declared my car safe to drive again, and I still have to take it in soon for an alignment check.  Of course, the one day I forget to pack a book in my purse is the day I get stranded somewhere for hours with nothing else to do.  :XD:  Could have been a lot worse, I suppose.

At least most of the snow and ice is gone now -- a combination of rain and warmer temperatures has helped mostly clear the roads.  I know it's bound to snow and freeze a lot more before winter's finally over, but I'll enjoy clearer roads while I can for now.  :XD:

Still chipping away at the next chapter of Nexus Point.  I'm having way too much fun with these characters.  :giggle:  The trick will be making them interesting to the reader as well, since people tend to read TF stories for the robots and not the humans.  Hopefully I can pull it off.

Also, thanks for participating in the meme last journal.  :D  It's been a long time since every quote in the meme was guessed.  I figured a few of them would be a little too obscure for a lot of people, but I seem to have some Disney fans among my watchers.  ;)

No, no meme this journal.  Maybe next time.  ;)

I hadn't heard that.  I don't really watch or follow X-Men, though -- can't even tell you who Apocalypse is...

You can check the wiki's but in short Apocalypse is believed in the verse to be the first ever mutant in recorded history. He has a multitude of powers and has telekinetic powers that rival and even surpass Xavier. In one animated series he took out the X men and the Brotherhood of mutants with one shot.

Heya. I just watched the Blu-ray my mom bought of "Maleficent." I very much enjoyed the perspective of "Sleeping Beauty"'s main antagonist, who wasn't as antagonistic as I imagined.

I was "meh" about "Maleficent" myself.  Not my favorite movie, but not terrible either.
