To those who are waiting for Justice: Sorry, but I don't think I can update the chapter tonight. I've got unexpected guests coming for dinner and I don't know what time they're going to go home. I'll do my best to get the chapter up tonight. If not tonight, then tomorrow for sure!

Awwww....no need to push it, sweetie! I'm happy to know it's ready to be posted! I can wait until it actually is. Have fun with your guests. At least...I hope they're the fun kind. Lol.

Thank you! They WERE the fun kind. I was excited to see them, although it was short notice and I had to run out and go food shopping at 5:30. I cooked dinner for eight people tonight! They just left about 15 minutes ago. I'm going to start applying the beta-edits to my chapter now.

That's alright were all adults we cam wait. I hope were adult's miners should not read this story. Good luck with diner.

Thanks, jenmoon! If there are any minors reading this story, I hope they didn't read chapter 16! (and freak out)

That's perfectly alright, I had a charming lazy Saturday with idle fun and a nice long bout of sleeping in, and will be up for a number of hours yet in all probability anyway.

Hope your dinner guests are well behaved, don't make a mess, and are generally more fun than the paranoia of hosting them.
(I know I'm hoping the same for myself for tomorrow, when a friend's coming over for a day and some. Hosting always makes me even more sleepless with worry and more unsettled feelings than normal)

Wow, your Saturday sounds so much more peaceful than mine! Although I did get to sleep in longer than usual. But I pretty much spent the day ferrying my in-laws and husband by car to various locations. First they all went out on a boat, and then they went to an Indian festival. I drove back and forth twice, listening to loud music. Then when they had all settled down at home, I dashed off to the grocery store to buy stuff I needed for cooking.

Yes, I know what you mean about hosting. It's a lot more work than when you're the guest at someone's house and all you have to do is show up and be pleasant! When I'm the hostess, I can hardly sit down because someone always needs something.

Generally my hosting of friends is a bit easier- for the most part, we're all video game junkies, so my job consists of getting everyone to agree on, and participate in the same game, remembering to stop 2 or 3 times a day for food and drinks, and generally avoiding conflict between my folks and my other duties and the people I have over.

And I don't usually have to cook if I don't want to (I could just direct them to the frozen dinners, which we're usually stocked with) but I generally like to cook for my friends (certainly much more enjoyable on the results when it's good, though it is panic-stricken when they don't like it, even if it's no fault of my own). Mostly, I stick to simple foods for friends, because not everyone enjoys veggie stir-fry and spiced rice or heavily herbed pasta, which are my more extravagant usual dishes.

...goodness, now I'm hungry. Would you look at that.

I like to drive too, so long as I'm not tired and cranky (but then I avoid my car like a plague, cause I know better) so I don't find it troublesome to ferry people around. Just this past month I picked up a friend from the nearby big city for a three-day weekend, a 7-9 hour round trip, and drove her back, because I hadn't seen her in a year.
I almost always have my ipod to play music as I drive along, and with my lovely car, and stopping frequently for gas (my baby has a tiny gas tank, but great mileage) I rarely get too stiff, and it's generally a pleasant enjoyable trip.

In any case, I hope that sleep-in kept you rested enough for these last hectic days. Take care!
