Rough times, Sonny. When you are around, hope to hear how you and yours are coming along after your brother's passing.

Glad to see other residents of Ditto Town feel nostalgic about the old days when 10 or more pages of posts would pass in a day.

How're y'all doing?!

Sonny, continuing to think of you in this grief.

I'm sure glad summer is pretty much over and my favourite season is about to begin. Some summers I wonder how I am going to make it through. But I always do, so there's that. :P

*waves cheerily to all the denizens of the good ol' Town Square* :-h And just for fun, and because I can never find a good spot to put this emoticon ...
:o)

Watching Hurricane Michael make landfall as a category 4.

It is feeling like Fall here. Been too warmish for my tastes. The leaves are changing color.

Hey ceppault!

I've been watching the hurricane coverage as well.

It's rained here pretty much all month, leading to saturated ground and localized flooding. And now there's snow to the northwest of here, and we may get the season's first flakes tonight. This cold, wet weather isn't doing well for the fall colors, but I hope to still get a chance to take a trip out of town next week if it dries out and warms up a little.

ceppault, are you safe from Hurricane Michael right now? Admittedly, I don't know a lot about hurricanes since I live so far away from any coasts, but I thought hurricane season was over. This one seemed to come out of nowhere.

I took a weekend trip with an 1 1/2 hour drive to get home today. I got to watch the world basically go from perfect fall colors to a world that looked like it had been dusted with powdered sugar. And then, of course, after I got to drive in it, the snow almost immediately melted. ;)) I have a feeling we're going to have a very short fall.

But, I had a fun weekend with local NarniaWebbers and I got to enjoy one last beautiful fall weekend, so I'm satisfied. :) I heartily ditto Jo - autumn is simply the best time of the year. Oddly enough, I've found that I've been getting very nostalgic memories of coming home from school - as in, elementary through high school. I never thought that I'd think back to those days so wistfully! Autumn does strange things to me. Strange, wonderful things. *Sighs contentedly*

Merry December y'all, sure is quiet around these parts. Just popping in to say hello and share a few updates. I'm in South Korea these days, gonna be here until around July or so. If y'all ever get the chance to visit this country, I recommend it. It's absolutely beautiful. I've got so many pictures of the scenery alone. Maybe I'll share them here sometime.

Any who, I start taekwondo classes on Monday. The instructor says it takes about eight or nine months to earn your black belt, so hopefully I'll be heading back to the states with a new skill and a cool belt.

It snowed thanksgiving weekend, with was super cool. I built a pretty neat snowman, which then immediately melted. =))

How is everyone these days? I can't wait for these Netflix projects to really pick up some steam and get this place bumping again. Its recently been brought to my attention that this march will mark eleven years for me spent on NWeb, that's pretty much the most constant thing in my life other than my family, tbh. Crazy how time flies. Hope all is will with everyone and if we don't talk before the holidays then Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, New Years, and a good Festivus to all.

Merry December to you too, nerd! :) Glad to hear you're doing well - hopefully better than your snowman. :P I was curious so I looked up some pictures of South Korea, and wow, you weren't kidding. It looks gorgeous out there. I'll have to add that to my list of places to think about visiting if I ever leave the States. :)

Good luck with your black belt! I took martial arts classes when I was very young, but my parents stopped paying for them when I stopped practicing. ;)) I've considered taking up tai chi again, but that's one of the many things I've thought of doing but never got around to.

I reached the point last year where I'd been on NarniaWeb longer than I was alive before I joined. That... was a strange experience. ;)) I still vaguely remember a time in my life before then, but I think at this point, I've been on longer than I was in school. Which is appropriate, because I feel like I learned almost as much on NarniaWeb as I ever did in school. ;)

I'm currently househunting, which would be an exciting prospect if I could find anything I liked. ;)) I'm a first time homebuyer, so I'm learning as I go the kinds of things I'm looking for. Being on a pretty tight budget makes things extra fun. But, my realtor was the youth pastor at my old church and is a close family friend, so having someone I trust show me houses is a huge relief.

* wanders in while procrastinating *

Sonny, how are you and your family doing? I hope you are have a good measure of joy this Christmastide. :ymhug:

Nerd, that is so cool about South Korea! It is quite a lovely place, but most of my time has been either in the heart of the capitol or down by Busan. We should compare notes some time.

Rya, good luck house hunting! Keep us updated, if you don't mind. :D

Life has been...busy, to say the least. I ended up never getting any herbs in this year ( :(( ), however my dad planted fifteen (no, I am not exaggerating) tomato plants and nothing else, so no one was lacking in tomatoes, at least. I was probably going out to pick between 5-8 pounds a week just to give away, and my parents were doing the same. It was rather ridiculous. He has promised to plant fewer tomatoes next year, but he is already playing around with a trellissing idea, which I actually think will be fairly promising. A local restaurant did similar a few years ago, and theirs seems to hold up quite well.

Otherwise, it has been mainly work, work, and more work. The smoke from the awful fires has cleared, which is very nice (if you're wondering, this is a comparative of what it looked like over the nearby port), however, mud after fires is also quite dangerous, as it ends up creating mammoth mudslides, among other things. But, at least you can go outside without a mask, and the fires are out.

Despite the fact that I don't get a break this year (yay, me), I'm quite looking forward to winter break. It's been one of those months where everyone knows what they need to do but they're all being cantankerous donkeys about every little detail, so nothing gets done. I'm hoping most of them being off for a week or two or three will help reset some of that. I'm just glad I get to avoid attending an end-of-year wedding. :P

Does anyone have any particularly fun or special plans for the various holidays? Beyond making unhealthy foods (yay, doughnuts!), I've not given it much thought yet.
