Nice day off  
Another very good day today. Chris and I went to IHOP and I helped show him how to use his go pro. We filmed ourselves talking and waiting for our breakfast. It was cool to see us like that and what nerds we are. I spread all the gopro accessories on the table and we talked about them. Perhaps I may share that with some of you. I was concentrating so much I didn't know Chris took my drink and sipped from it. Didn't find out til we watched the video. I'm like that when I'm into something. The whole world around me just vanishes and I only see and hear what's in my mind.

Then we went to the bank and got some things fixed on our accounts. We let them know when our trip was because they like to know that kind of thing for safety reasons. We told them what cities and countries we'd be in. Though we won't do any big spending. Everything's already paid. I really do not see us spending much of anything. Perhaps we might buy some food if we don't eat at the buffet every day. And I think I want to get a model of the ship from the store. I'll buy postcards and stamps and all of that can probably be used with the credit I have on board. I don't plan to buy anything on the islands. There's nothing I want but to take photos and videos. The only bad thing today was Chris got his new car stereo but doesn't like it. The sound isn't good in it. Shame his old one had better sound quality. I usually don't notice these things but I did this time and he's right. I hope the can get one he links with little hassle. We were supposed to meet Alex and drop off the laptop but that didn't work out either. But that's ok. We came home and have been watching Star Trek and going online.

I got a new swimsuit the other day I ordered it. It's very nice. It's a blue galaxy one piece that looks very nice. Perfect nerdy thing for me. I'll use it on my trip for sure. I posted the 9th chapter of No Longer One on DA. I'm behind posting the chapters here. I forget what chapter we left off on but I will try to post the next one tomorrow.

We also went to Michael's to look at the Halloween stuff. But I found these cool white vinyl tukeys to pain for Thanksgiving. Chris bought me two. I will see if I can paint one and leave the other solid white as he feels neat. Bullet loved it right away. I'll let her play with it tomorrow but I'm afraid she'd hurt it. I also have to upload two video of Bullet biting my GoPro.

I'm glad you had another nice day. Your autumn is going well so far. Hehe, that's funny Chris took a sip of your drink while you were concentrating on something else :) And then you caught him on camera, haha :) I think so-called nerdy people are much more interesting than the normal boring ones!

That sucks about Chris's new sound system. I hope he can get a replacement without any trouble and that the next one is good!

I need a new swim suit, too. I hoped to buy it last autumn in the sales but it didn't happen. So, it's still on my list. And school holidays are coming up soon, too!

That would be so cute to see Bullet play with your GoPro. Interesting how she likes the turkeys, too :)

Yes it's been very nice. Yeah, snuck a drink hee hee. I think I will post that in private here.

Yeah he was so excited and then it wasn't what he expected. I hope he can find one that has the quality he wants. The old one sounded better but it's glitching too much to keep.

I looked it up on ebay and found some neat pattern ones there. Yeah there are none left in stores now because "winter" is coming though it's still hot here. I wish those kinds of seasonal things didn't apply to Florida because we're so different from the rest of the country.

Yes I must post the videos of Bullet too.

That's funny that you aren't aware of Chris drinking out of your drink. I wonder if he was aware of it, or if he just grabbed one without knowing which it was. I am always aware of food. It comes from having family members who will take stuff off my plate without asking. I will choose if and when I want to share.

I want to get up to Michael's or Hobby Lobby soon. I'm afraid the fall stuff will be gone if I don't.

I read chapter 9 on DA. You did use my idea, but I don't think he needs to tell her... yet. Not until he can find the right words for it, especially since some of his enemies would have a field day if they found out.

He was aware. He reached across me and grabbed it. Haha, I didn't notice. I'll post that later on. It's funny. I do share with Chris though. He's the only one. But still sometimes I'll protest like a budgie popping.

Yeah I worry about that too because stores aren't normal I don't know when to go for what seasons anymore.

Oh wow. Thanks for reading that. Well I still have to post them here. Kabuldur reads them too so I need to get the next chapter up. Yes I loved your idea actually. Chris said something similar. That it might be something he just keeps to himself since he's so secretive and for his own feelings. He would have a hard time wording it. There should be only two more chapters after this. I have the end finished. It's the next part that needs work.

That's awful about the stereo :( I hope there's just a setting that is overlooked or something. When I got my new stereo in the car I was so thrilled because I can use my flash drive and listen to all my music instead of dealing with cds or idjets yapping on the radio. However, it sounded muted. I did something with the bass settings and it's ok now. Don't give up, it might be something as simple.

PS I can't get onto DA at all on my desktop for some reason. It's so annoying. Even my netbook is telling me it can't load it. I dn't think it's a computer problem as it's an official DA page that is telling me this. :( I hope if it is on their end they fix it soon. I'm waiting on a commission *sigh*

Glad you had fun with the GoPros XD I loved making the one with you dropping it in the water that day hee hee!

Our old one was an Alpine and the same thing happened. He didn't like the sound it was muted and muffled. But then he found the loudness button and it was great. He's messed with all the controls on this on this one. It's a Kenwood. No good. So Sunday he has an appointment and will get an upgrade. He's thinking of a Sony. Yes that's why he wanted it. No more CD's we want to use flash drives. They hold so many more songs. Also CD's get warped in the heat and start skipping. He would make a bunch of disposable mixes that way.

Last night was terrible on DA. Comments weren't going through. It was slow. Pages were only partially loading. Then they made an "upgrades" announcement. Gee no shock. I haven't been on yet since I always come here first but gosh doesn't surprise me this new "upgrade" messed everything up. It didn't used to be like this. They mess with the system way to much. I hate it. And always seems to happen when I make a new post. I just finished the budgie last night.

Yeah that was a fun video. I should get you a copy of it. I'm not sure what I did with it though. It's around somewhere. I was bad and didn't do the uploading of budgie vids like I said or anything else as I only worked on that budgie trade.
