Hey...whatever works, I got noooooooooooo complaints. :)
I remember where I was on this day. I was working at Ames, where at the time, I was the Lead Merchandiser for the Ladies Intimate Apparel and Sleepwear Department. It was kitty-corner with the Electronics department and all the TVs there were set to the news channels. I remember hearing the disturbing news that a plane had hit one of the towers as I was straigtening a rack of bras close by. The lady who was working in that department (whom I work with at my current job) that day and I were both in shock as we watched what was going on in our own homestate. As the news spread, more of our co-workers began to abandon their own jobs to watch with us, and even a few customers came as well. It was a horrible, tragic and deeply disturbing.
I may forget what I was doing a year ago, but this is something that will stick in my mind until the day I die. <3
I'm laying in bed last night, around midnight, reading a book and listening to the TV. My bedroom door is completely closed, my back is to both the door and the TV.
All of a sudden, I got this really oppressive feeling like I was being watched and my mattress moved as if someone was kneeling on it. I froze for about half a minute and waited. But that feeling of being watched would not go away for quite some time. I finally sucked it up and turned my head...no one there. My bedroom door is still closed and I would hear it if it opened because the wood is warped from the heat and the jamb and the side of the door rub against each other. That being watched feeling went away after about 3 minutes.
But it took me a long time to get to sleep after that.
I've been working on a Severus-adopts-Harry AU story called "Two Little Blackbirds", trying to get back into writing again. I'm partway through the first chapter now, but I don't want to start posting it until I have at least 4 or 5 chapters done. I kind of missed writing. I keep starting projects, hate where they're going and put them away for a while. So we will see how it goes.
