Holy schnikes! Kind of out of the blue, my mum decided to come visit me this weekend! Well, she’s trying to, anyway. Mumsie works for United Airlines (no snide comments, please–she’s very loyal to her company, even though they suck) (Um, Dad, don’t tell her I said that, k?), so she’ll be flying standby. That means she may or may not get on the plane. So she may or may not actually be coming to visit me. But she’s supposed to be here tomorrow night, and then we’re going to San Diego. Yay! So please send some mumsie-get-on-the-plane vibes, yes? Oh, and also mumsie-get-here-safely vibes as well. Those are more important.

ETA: Not enough vibes, people! She didn’t get on the plane. And the flights tomorrow are even worse, so she’s not coming. :( I think I’m going to hit the beach this weekend though, so I’ll leave things set as they are. Over and out.

So since I’ll be buggering off this weekend, I’ve decided to catch up on some memes that I’ve been tagged with lately. (Holy crap, has the world gone topsy? Answer: yes.) I’ll do one today, then set up the others to go up over the weekend. So that’s what’s coming from me. May I take this moment to remind you, both bloglines and google reader have this fabulous “mark as read” option. You may want to employ that for the next few days regarding this space.

To start: the mosiac meme that I actually haven’t been tagged for, but I think it’s cool so I’ll do it anyway. I first saw it on Nell’s blog, but it’s been a few other places, too. Here’s my contribution.
