Pulpo = win!

The other day, I mentioned Octopus Paul--aka Pulpo Paul--and I have to mention him again today. You see, he's quite the champ. Here he is with his latest prediction:

He clearly picked Spain over the Netherlands. And you know what? He was right, right, right! Yes. Spain won the World Cup. We got up at 4am this morning to watch the match, but gosh, the real action didn't happen until almost the end of extra time. By then, hubby had already left for work. lol. Still, it was worth watching. :)

And, that's it for another four years. It was fun while it lasted, but it'll be great to get some proper sleep now.

You know, late last week, I thought I knew what I was going to tackle this week... but over the weekend, I changed my mind. This month has been a lot about rewriting/reviving stories that I think deserve a second chance of life. So far, that adventure has proven to be quite successful, and I'm going to take it again. This week, I'm going to read over (I don't expect any real rewriting, just tweaks) a novella that I'm going to sub into an anthology. I plan to get it read by the end of the week, so I can sub it in by Friday. Fingers crossed.

Because of the World Cup, I got off to a pretty bad start. :( Just got the first chapter done, and want to read it again because my head just wasn't in the right place. Hopefully I can do that sometime later, although I doubt it because daughter and I have to walk down to the bank to sort something out. I hate it when people make errors that should've been clear from the start. Incompetence is a pet peeve of mine.

Well, better get my daughter's brekky ready because I want to head out as early as I can. Better to get to the bank early. See ya!

PS. I got a new Static Movement Anthology acceptance this morning! For the Ghosts and Demons antho, this time. Got my eye on the Darkest Secrets one, too. :D
