Oh and Caely, upon realizing that the stereotypical French-Canadian attitude is what drove my mainly Irish-German grandmother's life into a living hell, I have named you as the perpetrator and catalyst of my infuriated behavior as it has been pronounced over these past...4 years?
I might say that I have many thorns in my side, what harm could one more do?
But you, you are the bullet-hole in my head. kthxbai.
Mind you, there is no bullet anywhere. I always hate anthropomorphized manifestations of *
Glad to know that my soul isn't the only one being eaten by NaNo. wink What's your account over there so I can add you as a buddy (or whatever it's called on that site)? I'm merigreenleaf on the NaNo site (somehow my business alias became my writing alias; I guess that works out if I ever get published since I'll have a pen name ready to go, lol).
I like a few things in that RIG- the Skyfish Ribbons, Sirenia Atargatis, and Brosnya Dragoon are pretty!
Oh! Guys! I got my first Hobbit action figure! I rewarded myself with Bilbo for hitting 25k words in my NaNo story (well, technically I won't get there until tomorrow so I'm not allowed to open the box, says my husband. *pout*). 50k words will get me Thorin. But what's with the figures being so *expensive* now? When LotR was out, I swear they were like $9, which is the size of the 3" figures now. The regular sized ones are $15! stare Looks like I'll only be getting maybe three of the dwarves.
I like the idea of rewards. I'm letting myself have a piece of candy for every day I get 1k (or when I get to that day's goal. Depends on how much I want candy, lol). But after seeing the new Hobbit stuff on Jinx, I'm rethinking the Thorin action figure and wanting one of those tshirts! (Maybe I should write my fingers off and try for 75k so I can justify both!)
That'd be fun! I've not been able to do candy, but I promised myself snickerdoodles at 25k and I reached that today. Soon as I reach goal, I will go make cookies. And then, as cookies bake, I will continue trying to write.
But I have died, having found the ENTIRE THE HOBBIT SOUNDTRACK (or at least, all of part 1's) to stream. I'm in heaven. So much love.
