on the road again

Okay, this is it! I'm going to be, as sl_podcast puts it, blacked out for awhile. I'll be driving 9 hours to Missouri today (Saturday), driving all day Sunday to get back, then spending a few days after doing Christmas stuff and celebrating jillyh2009's birthday (Dec. 27). Plus, my first night back to work is Christmas Eve, leaving precious little time for sleep, let alone anything else. Not to mention, strangexgirl and I want some alone time!

So once again I'll be disappearing for an unknown period of time. You'll be seeing my column next week, of course, and I do have a couple of Buffy fanfics coming that I haven't had time to post yet. But I just don't know if I'll have time to comment on my flist for awhile --! Please don't defriend me! *is paranoid* Once I get back online, you can be sure that I'll be back with you, reading what my friends have to say, even if I don't get a lot of reply time.

Merry Christmas, everyone, and Happy Holidays! Drive carefully, and be well.

Ah, well, I think most people are busy during the holidays, so I'm sure not many will take offense. Especially you! But, then, maybe you won't have time to think about your winter time blues. ^ - ^

Drive safe and have an amazing holiday!

It's funny you should mention wintertime blues. I'm determined not to take my Zoloft this year -- I'm going to depend on Emily to keep me perked up instead. She's agreed to tackle the job, so it's not like I'm springing that on her!

Off work in 30 minutes, on the road in 7 hours!

We understand completely! By all means, go spend time with your girl. A little birdy told me she had a pretty shitty birthday just like I did. :(

I think I drove pretty safely ... some of the people around me, not so much! But we made it back and we're having a fine time so far, although unfortunately I"m back to work. Happy Holidays to you, too!

*defriends you IMMEDIATELY!!!*

Oh wait -

Have a great time - be careful on the roads.

The roads got a bit iffy on the way back; we had an accident happen right in front of us, and came to a dead stop on the interstate between Indianapolis and Fort Wayne for two other crashes. But everything came out okay, as long as my friends didn't defriend me! :-)

Merry Christmas! And I hope you have a safe drive and a wonderful time!

We had fun for the most part and weren't involved in an accident other than as witnesses -- when you drive the midwest in December, sometimes that's the best you can hope for! :-)

Have a safe round-trip journey and enjoy your girl and family!

Merry Merry Christmas!!!

We're all enjoying things very much -- I've eaten way too much and not had enough rest. Isn't that what the holidays are all about? :-)

Thanks! Things got a bit dicey along the way, but we all got home safely.

Your weather even made our news! So glad you got home in two pieces - one Mark and one Emily!

I *hate* it when our weather makes the news!

Absolutely - weather should be background, not news!

We did, and I did! Other people didn't, but they all missed me. :-)

Good! Fanfic makes the world better. :-) I'm going to get back to writing again as soon as I can, but I have to finish my original novel manuscript before tackling my next fanfic.

What a coincidence -- I worry about you sometimes, too! You hope I get some what? Alone time, or rest? :-) I think I'll be caught up on both this week. Oh, and thanks for friending Emi, she had an "aw" moment when she read what you had to say. *hugs you*

Yeah, when I realized you had Mr. Faith I figured I might as well let myself be taken by some *other* beautiful girl. *grin*

You're right, I'm quite sure there will be a lot less suckage this winter! In fact, so far it's been really great. :-)

We had a few close calls on the way, but we all arrived safely and have thus far been having a very Merry Christmas, indeed. I hope you're having the same!
