Being a nonconformist, I never do NaNoWriMo. However, even my nonconformity refuses to conform; I got bitten by a radioactive plot tonight and have rough sketches of 2 novels out of a 5 novel series. Not counting sketches of these two books, I have written 1,632 words of the first book of it; all of chapter one, and a handful of paragraphs for chapter two (maybe the first page).

Now to sleep before the dawn. I hope. ;P

(Also, fantomeq - we will be in Oregon the 13th! Sorry for the delay but only got confirmation as to when. Let me know how this works for you.)

It's that time of year again; if you want to recceive a holiday card from me, I need your mailing addresses (and, ideally, some sort of sobriquet by which to call you, unless you want it sent to your LJ handle).

I've set it so comments are screened so you may safely post comments without anyone other than me seeing them, for handling of names and addresses!

Interesting note : 50+ lb of pears = approximately 6 1/2 gallons of pulp. This results in probably between 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 gallons of juice; not sure yet.

Your Score: Phoenician

You scored

You are the Phoenician Alphabet! Teacher of the Greeks and Etruscans, you are the one all languages bow down to. That is, until the Romans decide to wipe out your civilization. That's the way the cookie crumbles.

Your Score: Longcat

71% Affectionate, 42% Excitable, 42% Hungry

Protector of truth.

Slayer of darkness.


Longcat may seem like just a regular lengthy cat, but he is, in fact, looong. For proof, observe the longpic.

It is prophesized that Longcat and his archnemesis Tacgnol will battle for supremacy on Caturday. The outcome will change the face of the world, and indeed the very fabric of lolcatdom, forever.

Be grateful that the test has chosen you, and only you, to have this title.

I'd been eagerly awaiting the permanent account sale, but with the way LJ's gone lately - I'm just not convinced.

Anyone have any opinions one way or the other?

Went to the range yesterday; shot only so-so, but next time will be better. Apparently I look hot with a Glock in my hands, which amuses me. So far, I prefer pistols to revolvers.

Today I did a bit of shopping with seattlesparks, bought one of those shower cleaning thingies at Target and a dvd. Had lunch at the California Pizza Kitchen, which wasn't bad. Had /dinner/ at Ototo with the beast, which - of course - was divine.

Tomorrow we're going to the sailing club and we'll be having some additional docking lessons. Yay!

I'm going to see about ordering that couch soon, too!

The house is clean.

I have new hearing aids.

We remain, as before, out of debt (despite the hearing aids).

We have good food, working vehicles, steady employment, healthy cats.

I am steadily although slowly shrinking.

My mother is coming to visit end of August.

Beginning of August, the beast and I will be taking a 3 day, 2 night, sailing trip/class.

I get to tabletop almost weekly.

I have friends, family, something approximating my health, kittycats, and the ability to do almost anything I want.

Life is good.

And now it's off to the gun range.

I have really really cute new shoes, as can be seen here.

I'm also slimmer than I was. My meds may need to be adjusted, I'm thinking; I think it's still a little underclocked, but we'll see at the next appointment.

I'm getting new hearing aids in a little over a week.

The beast and I are signed up for another sailing course - 3 days and 2 nights on board a 35 foot beautiful boat, meals provided - in August.

Life is good.
