I sent out 3 postcards through Postcrossing and as of yesterday, the third one arrived at it's destination. The three places I sent them were France, Australia, and Brazil. I just received my first one in the mail today; a cool postcard of Sherwood Forest from a gal in England.

Chances are people you don't even know
are being introduced to your journal every day, either randomly or
through someone else. In addition to recent entries, people can get to
know you better by what you posted in the past. With that in mind post
a link to your entries on this day exactly six months ago, nine months
ago, a year ago, two years ago, etc. If there was no entry on that day,
link the closest date.

We had just bought a new-to-us Bronco for Hellbob to drive to the new job he was starting, and I wanted to go to a design seminar in Switzerland but no one would give me $2500.

I posted pictures of the cutest twins ever, I filled everyone in on my Christmas holiday, and we went to dinner with cajones, chebutykin, michaellee, and frozendragon.

So far there are pictures in all these links! This one is of Tim McGraw because I had just seen him in concert the night before.

I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of Chiana, and i went to see a co-workers new baby. (FYI, the laptop arrived on Oct 6. Also, the beginning of October is when I started to get really addicted to Angel. I was watching S2 on DVD and S5 had just started it's season.)

Two days 'til Serenity!

Post subject: We few, we happy few...
Well boys and girls and boys dressed as girls and girls dressed as Kaylee, the time is almost upon us. This Friday we take that old rust-bucket out of the shipyard and see if she can breach atmo. It's been a long (to paraphrase a band I like) strange trip, and it'll be nice finally to show everybody what it is we've been tinkering with all this time. You already know you have my thanks, from the hardcore fans to the softcore... fans.... let me try that again. From the people manning the booths, buying DVD sets for their friends, getting banners seen everywhere on Australian TV, raffling artwork for ticketholders (Adam Hughes, take a bow), to the most casual fan who just wants to see the flick and won't ever even read this. You guys are the fuel in the engine, the Fire in the Fly, the weird green stuff coming out of Serenity's butt. (Hmmm. Forget that last one. I'm a little bit out of control here.)

Everyone needs something to keep them going. Mal has his ship. Zoe has her integrity. Jayne has Vera. And I've got you guys.

So what now? There have been so many posts about seeing it, seeing it again, the first weekend, the second weekend, being enthusiastic without being obnoxious (and yes, it IS hard to see over the pom-pom of a Jayne hat), buying tickets in advance, making a noise... I honestly wouldn't know what to add. I can tell you this: the movie will play in about 2200 hundred theaters, which is a good number. Too many, and you get empty theaters with no energy -- not enough, and you get, well, not enough. It may be hard to find in some areas but it'll be out there. Leave no multiplex unturned! This is going to be a ground war, peeps -- we have to hold the valley for a long while. However it opens, it needs to HOLD. Instead of the Alliance we'll be fighting viewer apathy, fear of something new, the urge to wait for DVD, and Jessica Alba in a bikini. (Although I have it on good authority that she spends 90% of the film in a huge wooly parka. Make sure that gets out.)

The day this puppy opens, I'll be seeing it with my family (don't worry, there's a lot of them, and they're all paying) and then I'm off to Europe to learn the word 'Browncoats' in nine different languages -- 'cause like I said, it's all about holding. I'll never be far from a computer, though, so I can check in with y'all. Thanks for every damn thing.

And remember, amidst all the urgency to make this an event, all the work and the worry, to take two hours and just enjoy yourself. That is, after all, what all this fighting's about.


Lie to me

As a 'fun' team exercise here at work we have to do "Two Truths & a Lie" where everyone submits two facts and one made up. They did this before and some people got into the fun factor of it, but some people just did the really lame "I was born in Florida." "I have 3 sisters." "I went to Kansas State University" Ugh! Not only is that hard to guess, it's just down right boring!! I did things like "My grandmother is older than my great-grandmother." Unfortunately I can't remember the other two I did last time. :(

Two Truths & a Lie

So, lets see how well y'all know me...
Here are the two truths & the lie I submitted for our work thing. Pick the one you think is NOT true.

Poll #579583 Sharon's Breakin' the Law version

Which one is FALSE?

I got a ticket for going the wrong way down a one-way...on the street I lived on!
When I lived in Fargo I was laid off from my job when the company was shut down by the IRS for tax evasion.
I know how to open a pair of police issue handcuffs without a key.

*edit* And the one that's not true is: When I lived in Fargo I was laid off from my job when the company was shut down by the IRS for tax evasion.
