NaNoWriMo Update and stuff

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody! Hope yours was as nice as mine was :) We had our family and then one of my brother's friends hung out with us too. We ate too much turkey and pie as always. Played Apples to Apples and my brothers cheated SHAMELESSLY. It came down to the last point and Joe had been playing random songs on YouTube, so he dropped down his card on Dave's turn and then changed the song that was playing. When Dave flipped over all of the cards, one of them was "Canada." Well, the song that Joe started playing was "O Canada" by Five Iron Frenzy.

Ha! Subtle hints....

Needless to say Dave miraculously chose the right card :)

I got a bunch of reading done for school and then even managed to squeeze in some NaNoWriMo writing.

I'm up to 36,664 words

So I'm still 6,670 words behind, but I want to go remedy some of that deficit right now!

Oh, yeah. And I also changed my background (again) as I'm sure you noticed. I was annoyed by the other one, because I couldn't get the quote at the top to show. And it was rather dark. This one is more cheery :D And I like the dandelions!

Happy Weekend!

Oh, much better background. The quote at the top is one of my favorites, too!

For the love of Benji, I forgot to also invite you to visit my humble blog. I just started it a few weeks ago.

Would love to have you stop by!

Ooh, I like it, and the lions are dandy. :) Apples to Apples is my FAVORITE game to play with my 8 yr old. :) She has gotten pretty good at coming up with crazy reasons why her cards should win. ;) In fact, she could probably convince someone that I should win NaNo, even though I didn't participate this year. Maybe she'll be a lawyer. And take care of me when I'm old and infirm. Hmmm...
