Hey, Barb! I sent you a note. :) 
drwho09 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2015
Thanks for the information I may incorporate some of that into it. In answer to your question naturally enough Bugs is the only one who could be Nick and Lola is going to be Natalie and when he finally appears Pepe will be Lacroix.

Pepe as LaCroix?  LOL!!

Went into Just Imagine the other day! Missing your cheerful face. I hope things are well!
Mominator Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2014

Thank you.  Who was working?  Let's see . . . Olaf (tall, skinny fellow in a baseball cap), Yenni (younger woman) or Virginia (older gal and owner of the store)?

Olaf is very friendly, especially if one likes board games.  If you ever have any questions about them, he's the fellow to ask.  Yenni is a little more reserved (at least when I first met her she was), but if you show up fairly regularly she will probably soften in that respect, if working with the public hasn't already done that for her.  She and her husband are big into Magic cards and other games.  Virginia knows little about the gaming/comic book aspect of the store (and has little interest in learning) but is very knowledgeable about the rest of the products in the store, and is quite friendly.

Yup, life is good, though I miss certain people and the social aspects of working at the store.  No social life here at all, unless one wishes to count my husband :D, but I suppose that's my fault.  There's a toy store in Newport (no comics or card games) that might be a good fit, and a comic book shop about an hour away but I suspect they're overwhelmed with people who would like to work there.

But, I am enjoying a life with very few responsibilities.  Heck, I find myself resenting things that take away from what I want to be doing, like doctor appointments or grocery shopping.

How about you?  How are you and Eric doing?  Is life treating you well?

Since the majority of California is under severe drought conditions, have the residents of Ridgecrest been asked/required to cut back on their water usage?  (I'm thinking Eric and I got out of there just in time. :giggle:)

They're talking severe drought here as well.  Our area is supposed to average 69" of rain annually, but they've had about 10" less than normal since October.  I see it, too.  It rained like heck all September and the news guys spoke of how unusual that was, then October was all sunshine and dryness and that was newsworthy as well.  Now, here at the coast (or close to it) the temperatures are in the high 50s or very low 60s in January.  IN OREGON! :wow:

At least things are still green for the moment. :D

Let me know how things are going.

Virginia, I think, though I've chatted with Olaf a few times as well. None of them replace you. *grin*

We're not under water restrictions--it's rained about as much as usual here (which is barely, of course), but we're no more "droughted" than usual.

Things are going well for us here. I hope the intervening months have seen you getting that extra social interaction you're missing.

And I just became a CV on deviantart, so I can set Literature DDs and generally have all sorts of power. *grin* So I'll be busy and online here a lot.

The rainfall amounts of recent years might surprise you.  When Eric and I moved to Ridgecrest in 1980 the average annual rainfall was 3.5 inches per year.  According to Wunderground (my fav weather website) the rainfall for 2012 was 1.5 inches, and I believe it was essentially 0 for 2013.  

I cannot check my facts because they recently "improved" their website and there is some sort of bug preventing me from accessing those tables from my tablet, and my laptop is soooooo far away - at least 8 - 10 whole feet from my current comfy position. ;D

Even before the drought there were concerns that the aquifer which supplies water to the area was being drained faster than the water was being replaced.

Nah, still no social interaction unless one counts spending an hour once every two weeks assisting my husband as he demos science experiments with about a dozen elementary school children.  But hey, that gives me lots of time to read fanfiction.  :D

So, what is a CV on DA, and what are DDs?
