    T-Minus ## And Counting...

    It's somewhat of a tradition of mine to use a space launch allegory for massive turning points in the KP franchise. I've used it for "So the Drama," when KP seemed to be over, when the series started back up (the shuttle's reentry), and now, for the third and last time, when KP rockets into her final adventure (in more ways than one!). Ironically, the space allusion is now more than fitting.

    Ordinarily, I'd give a number for each real-time day of countdown, but seeing as I didn't start this 15 days earlier, I'll dash through this five steps at a time.


    Godspeed, Commander Possible, godspeed!

    interesting concept...

    I am looking forward to Friday, even having heard snippits of the events (and, no, I'm not telling!). I only have one disappointment; if you know me, you can imagine what it is....

    That made me laugh.

    Despite the availability of the finale, I'm waiting to watch it on TV. It's the last new episode we'll ever get to watch, so rushing to watch it in an itty-bitty streaming video box just doesn't seem right.

    Same here. While I was admittably impatient to some extent to read the spoilers in regards to the episode, I am in no rush to actually watch it before the big day arrives. Dig out the recordable VHS tapes and the popcorn, 'cause that day is gonna be one to remember.

    Well with 2 and 1/2 hours to go 'till the big 3 day event gets ready to happen my check list is complete. Scan disk & defrag are complete and hard drives got 231 gigs of free space to work with. Computers recorder schedule is set and ready to go for its first 18 hour run... not to much longer now.

    Smile

    I am holding off as well.

    It may become difficult as the week wears on and more and more people watch the utube version to avoid any spoilers however.

    So I will try to stay focused on my writing.

    Well, I don't care, I watched the finale already. It's not like a streaming video window is a whole lot smaller than my TV anyway. Besides, I could step under a bus tomorrow.
