Miss Hawaii? [ September 25, 2004, 5:57 p.m. ]

Now that the sun is setting by 7:30, I am ready to crawl into bed by 8:30. I have about 1 hourís worth of energy after the sun sets. I have a feeling this is going to be a loooooong dark winter.

The weather has been more summer than fall. And everday the sky is clear and blue. I was so inspired I bought a bunch of bulbs to plant. Except I need to wait until itís not hot. Maybe November.

Last weekend R and I went to visit my family for a few hours. My brotherís girlfriend was there. There is no way I could describe this person here. Nobody would believe me anyway. Letís just say sheís.. ..in old fashioned terms.. ..


She has a wide array of crazy stories to tell. Sheís a doctor, she was once in a coma for twenty years and she was Miss Hawaii. Usually when she enters the room, we all start drifting away until she finds us all huddled in another room. My sister loves to get her going then slithers off so she doesnít have to listen to the mess she started. My sister invited her to sit down with us and began to ask her questions knowing they would lead to some ridiculous story. And they did.. ..and those of us that couldnít slip away were openly laughing at her. Laughing until we cried. She had no clue we werenít laughing WITH her.. ..

Iím afraid to start reading The Dark Tower VII. I know I will read it too fast. I know I will cry. I know I wonít want it to end. So Iím stalling. I re-read Eyes of the Dragon, The Little Sisters of Eluria, Skeleton Crew and some trashy medical thriller I found at work.

The trees have started to change already..hopefully I'll get some good pics!
