Slashdot Post MaDnEsS!

As if we’re not filling up the Internet with enough redundant information, here’s a good small-world story from this morning… Slashdot had a story about the Top 20 Geek Novels, including a couple by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, but alas, not my favorite: “Good Omens”. I felt compelled to post this comment and went about my merry way, happier for adding my 2 cents.

Imagine my surprise, then, when Grant IMs me this morning and has posted this blog entry after wandering across my original comment! Ah, the blogosphere. Wicked Cool.

Joe Rules

Well, Joe got himself a new house! I’m sure I’ll have pictures eventually, but for now my camera’s battery is dead and the charger is in the wrong state. *sigh*. In support of Joe’s move, yesterday was spent, in large party, inhaling wallpaper dust as we scraped through 80 years of the stuff. Three layers… the green palm-frond patterend wallpaper on the bottom is my favorite, but Joe tells me he can’t save it. Shame, really. Now if I can just figure out what to do with MY house, now that he’s not living in it, we’ll be doing fine.

Update: This post was hacked somehow… I’ve removed the offending bits, but sorry in the meantime.

esmooshed

This time it totally wasn’t my fault. My car was parked on the street, don’t you know, and I was nice and comfy inside making little headway writing my novel when the loud crashing noise that inevitably preceeds ones car alarm going off happened outside.
56695Then my car alarm went off. So I wandered outside and lo-and-behold my car had been esmooshed. The guy who hit me was very nice, and had apparently been looking for a tic-tac when he wandered over a bit too near my car’s interior, and he stopped and handled everything, but it’s still a pain. At least there are pictures, tho! Car should be back in service Nov. 18th — the celebration party is apparently at Melanie’s.

NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month is November, which, if you hadn’t noticed, has just started. This year (in strong contrast to last year, when I first wanted to try NaNoWriMo), I’m actually sitting in front of my computer with my word processor open. Hopefully I’ll get further than that. If not, there’s always next year. In the mean time, I’ve got 50,000 words left to write (out of 50,000) so, ah, quit bothering me. Right.

500 Series

How sad is it when I get excited that I bowled a 500 Series? For those of you not in “the know”, bowling 3-games (a series) with a total score of 500 is, probably, fairly easy, for people that do that sort of thing (bowl) regularly. It is, however, my first time, so I thought I’d cheer and shout in my little way. (Yay me!)
