Not that it matters, but i think Lost Girl's plots and writing went completely down hill after she met The Wanderer for the second time. The dialogue during the finale was awful. I was thinking, since that concludes the episodes available on Netflix, that perhaps they were canceled and their heart wasn't in it -- but no, there's a season five.

Anyhoo.

My brother's visit on Thursday afternoon went pleasantly, although i lost him in Target too many times. Got exercise doing laps around the store though while he collected Halloween candy, clothes for the kids, costumes, toys, and clothes for himself to take back to Singapore.

Did i mention that we bought new porcelain dishes? In my periodic "three things to make things better" i have been frustrated with the silverware marks on the stoneware. It's clear that scrubbing with something like Bon Ami is the answer, but it is a very annoying answer. I switched to our very nice flatware and that didn't make a difference. I've been pondering how we have plenty of fine porcelain plates (compared to how often we would use them), but they have a metallic rim. I saw a set of porcelain dishes marked down to roughly $10 a place setting (which is incredibly cheap) in a pattern that was agreeable and splurged. It is a whiter white than our fine porcelain pattern but the greys on both match. In general it doesn't look completely mismatched.

Meeting issues on my mind. Meeting a friend at the Sunnyvale Farmer's market before spending some hours in a clerking meeting discussing the state of the meeting.

I just checked my netflix queue and it looks like I gave up on Lost Girl early in season 4.

It sounds like your stoneware might be a little soft? I really only get silverware marks in the old mugs that I use to scramble eggs in. Porcelain is so much nicer to use anyway (although my main everyday plates are Corelle that I've had for decades.)

Sounds like a perfectly good time to give up on the series.

Yes, it must be. I have to say for first quality Noritake prices, i would have expected more of the stoneware. The decades old Pfaltzgraff being soft is understandable, especially since they were seconds.

Anyhow, we'll see if these stay white.

Heh. Since I have a character called "The Wanderer" in my Balanced Sword trilogy it always jolts me to see another character called "the Wanderer"...

They're also called the Phoenix books (Phoenix Rising, Phoenix in Shadow, and (forthcoming) Phoenix Ascendant.

PS Your character MUST be better than Lost Girl's Wanderer.

I can hope so. OTOH, he's one of my two published Mary Sues...
