Family May 2012


  • According to drmellow, my Rosh Hashana post was 1390 words. I didn't check his math. That's only about 300 words shy of what I'd need to write every day in order to get to my 50,000 word goal in November.

  • Of course, that was crappy writing without having to think about characters and plot, but at least the goal of NaNoWriMo is quantity not quality.

  • I'm pretty amused by the idea of writing quantity not quality. Sounds like my senior thesis in college.

  • I'm pretty sure I never wrote an entry about this (maybe I will eventually), but I've been taking Glucophage for insulin resistance for about a month now. It has lots of icky side effects, but it has one especially annoying one. I have a metallic taste in my mouth most of the time. Everything drink tastes like pennies. Yuck.

  • Charlie (one of our cats) had a sneezing fit this morning before I left the house.

  • He looked pretty pissed off about it too.

  • It was hysterical

  • I shamelessly stole this format from bluejeanjexy's format of "And in other news"

  • She's likely to be pretty darned bitter about it.

  • I feel mildly guilty about it.

  • Isn't imitation supposed to be the greatest form of flattery?

  • If I write a novel in November, it's likely to be 200 pages of pure crap.

  • Do I care?

  • I hate that my perfectly good Coke tastes like pennies!!!! Blah.

  • Now that I have a paid account, I believe I need more icons. I think I need an icon for these quickie posts.

  • Get your mind out of the gutter!

  • That is, I need an icon if bluejeanjexy isn't irrevocably pissed at me for shamelessly stealing her format.

  • I had decided on a new user name for my journal (though obviously never gotten around to re-naming it), but I'm getting some pressure to go with a different name.

  • I think I may use my new-found skill of poll-making to do a run-off vote on the two names

  • Bet you're dying to know what the two names are. Seth and Jim probably know. The rest of you will have to wait with baited breath.

  • See? I can do this novel thing...I've got the suspense thing going. ;)

  • I keep thinking I'm done with my quickies, and then I think of something else to write. These quickies aren't so quick.

There's still time to vote in my poll!

Those of you choosing the cheeto option, you definitely have commitment issues. :-D

So I'm thinking if I decide to participate in NaNoWriMo, I'll write about this chick who lost her mind and somehow agreed to write a novel in thirty days or less...

Well, anyway, expect some polling to happen on plot ideas if I decide to participate.

Apparently Sabra Grille in Pikesville has given up their kosher certification. Dernit. I wanted to try it!
