I Was a Peruvian Farmer

True story. I was. Yesterday. And you can read about it on Rita's blog here.

As for the declaration that I was going to begin writing ahead of schedule. It's not happening. has sucked me into a world of make-believe and I am currently trying to master the exact science and subtle art that is potion-making.

Oh, and spell-casting is horribly tricky as well.

When it works, it works well. I wish it would work more often.

Training is going very well. Wednesday nights K.C. and I have started working with the body pads (padded chest/body protectors so we can actually hit each other - getting hit still hurts, by the by. I shudder to think what it feels like with out the pad!). I'm uncoordinated and K.C. is very kindly keeping the drills simple for me. Still, it's wicked fun.

M.D. came over last night. She's in town from Saskatchewan ... or was is Saskatoon. One of those. It was lovely to see her again in any case. She's looking well and she's awesome as always.

Have you seen the Game of Thrones teaser trailer? I have. I can't wait for it to start!

On the subject of T.V. shows, there are two slated to premier soon, and I can't wait to see them. Grimm and Once Upon A Time. It's so wonderful to see faerie tales coming back into story-telling. I'm a huge fan of faerie tales.

Right, nothing else to report, so I'm going to Hogwarts now. Potions starts soon and I don't want Snape to get mad at me...

Do you know if Grimm and Once Upon a Time will be on tv in the US? I'd love to see them!

And nice job as the donkey farmer!

According to the wonderful, Grimm will air on NBC on October 21st, and Once Upon a Time is slated to air on the ABC on the 23rd of October.

So, the short answer is yes.

And thanks! I had fun with that. I really like the way Rita wove in all the answers. She did an excellent job.

That's great news! I'll look them up.

I saw a commercial for Once Upon a Time last night and thought I had to tell you about it. And then I read your post. LOL I can't wait to check that out; I'll get the DVR all primed up to record it!

I does look good!
