I've been lurking and skimming posts on my flist and occasionally commenting, but it's been another week of being consumed by RL for me. I had people over Saturday for pumpkin-carving (I keep meaning to upload the video of the lit pumpkins to youtube, though now I'm afraid that jimmiefearsylar
's sister will point and laugh at me, too). I...am not sure what we did Sunday, but I know we did something. Monday night was shopping and dinner out after work, Tuesday night I cleaned house and then only slept 45 minutes, so Wednesday I stayed home from work and was a shapeless lump on the couch all day, and today I'm at work but appear to be coming down with a cold and am still loopy. Hopefully it is NOT an actual cold, as I'm invited to a party in my neighborhood tomorrow night, and Saturday Boyfriend's
parents will be coming by for an afternoon visit, and Saturday night is traditionally card-playing night, and Sunday I have to rake leaves and mow the yard one last time...
I'm struggling with whether or not to take part in NaNoWriMo. I signed up for an account (under this same user name). However, I do not have any ideas that I think could wind up being novel-length - I'm very much a short story person. So I'm considering just writing on a story idea till it's finished, and then starting a new idea. I realize that's not the point of National NOVEL Writing Month, but at the same time, I need something to kick-start me into writing something, ANYTHING, again.
OK. Yeah. Time to end the boring post of boring. I hope you're all doing well, and not yet driven crazy by the plethora of political ads that are assaulting us left, right and center. I will say, I think Al Franken's ads are the funniest I've seen yet, but then that's exactly what one would expect from him.
