Note and little travel meme thingy....

Hello!

So, I know my rewatches have suddenly disappeared. You can blame the job for that one. The rewatches were much easier to do when I was unemployed. They take about 4 hours, and the last few days I've finished work rather late and haven't felt like sitting on a computer for another 4 hours. So, rewatches might end up being a little slow. Hopefully I'll still be able to get it all done (including the update to the clothing catalogue) before the new year. I'm not working the computer-based job over Christmas (and probably not in December at all.)

Completely unrelated: Here's a fun little map thing of the places I've been:

raloria did it and it looked like fun... you can fill in the map for yourself.

I changed the legend a little bit:

red for states/provinces where you've not spent much time or seen very much driven through and maybe stopped for food, but have not been off the highway other than to sleep.
amber for states/provinces where you've at least slept and seen some sights.
blue for states/provinces you've spent a lot of time in or seen a fair amount of done multiple short visits or visited only one area multiple times.
green for states/provinces you've spent a great deal of time in on multiple visits or places you've lived.

As you might be able to tell, as a youth I once drove from Ontario to Disney World. ;)

Except for New Brunswick (which I've just visited frequently and seen almost all of), I've lived in all the provinces highlighted green.

For non-Canadians: Although I've lived in Newfoundland, I've never been to Labrador, but it's highlighted green because technically Newfoundland and Labrador is one province.

Vancouver is actually further north than St. John's Newfoundland (eastern most tip of Canada), but you wouldn't know it to look at this map. Vancouver is the furthest north that I've ever lived (I've visited places further north though.)

You have to visit Illinois--specifically Chicago--sometime!

I should! My sister has been there and she loved it. My friend, Kathleen, who you might have met at VanCon, is planning to go to ChiCon next year on general passes (so that she has time to see the city too.)

Also, according to the Fangasm book, Jensen recommends the architectural tour, and I love architecture! ;)

I could never do more than one episode a week (just posted 1-20 last night). Take your time. I will be looking forward to the next one!

Thanks! Yeah, it was much easier to do one episode a week when I was unemployed - an episode would basically be my "work" for the day. Then the next day I'd update the clothing catalogue (harddrive version)... so the work of each episode was actually spread out over two days. :P

Exactly. I took from 9:00pm to 2:30am last night to do mine this time around (not including the rewatches, pictures/gifs that I prepared) . No wonder my husband is jealous :P

I did this meme and my map was very southern. But I have been to Alaska, Quebec and BC. :)

Cool! I have never been to Alaska, but I hear it is pretty there. I have also, as you can see, not been to much of the south. :P

I did the map too. Since I was dragged from one end to the other of America from the time I was six, my map is almost all colored in.LOL I can even claim a bit of Canada as we went to the World's Fair in Montreal when I was four! (No, my Dad was not in the military. He had a want to live in every state - didn't get even close, but I saw more places before I was eighteen than most people see in their entire life.

I am eagerly awaiting the re watch and read your first impressions of the new episodes every week. Work before play, I can wait -the anticipation makes it all the better.

Wow, living in every state would be a hard thing to accomplish! Canada only has 10 provinces and 3 territories, but I've only managed to live in 4 of them so far (and am unlikely to live in more)!

I just remembered that I was in California in the womb, but I don't think that counts. :P

I'm glad you're looking forward to the rewatch! I'm hoping to do it tomorrow. Yay for weekends!! :)

I love this map meme! It's funny how clear the isolated trip to somewhere new can be sometimes. :)

Mine made me realize I've been to every state west of the Mississippi in the continental US. Yay!

Cool! Yeah, it's fun! They should do one for Europe... not that mine would be very filled out, mind. For having lived there for a year, I didn't venture too far.
