Okay, so I'm running behind on Nanowrimo. However, in many cultures, November goes on for months (just . . . go with it), and I've decided that my culture is one of those cultures. Honestly, just getting into this project has been enormously fun and interesting, and being forced to write no matter what is the secret. What I'm writing now is incredibly strange and not at all the novel I intended. It seems to be heavily influenced by The Westing Game, which is a little weird. Although huge props to The Westing Game; I can only hope to be half that good.

Speaking of weird, for the past six months, I've been having incredibly vivid dreams every night. Not those kind of dreams, sillies. I should probably start writing them down, because they go something like, "I'm in China and I'm in college and then Paris Hilton is my roommate and then I'm an American Idol semi-finalist and then we get in this plane but then it's a submarine" etc. I'm not on anti-malarial pills or anything! I think I might be just naturally crazy.

Also, I've been knitting, but it's just the same old blanket. The wedding is T-minus 3.5 weeks. Think good thoughts for the completion of this blanket...and for the Cupcakes' Mexican travels. The resort lets you drink and jet ski all day long. It's gonna get interesting.

So, I'm trying to do NaNoWriMo this year, which I've intended to do for a long time but always chickened out. I'm still a big chicken, but as I've gotten older (read: old) I'm less worried about failing and more worried about not even trying. So far, I have 500 absolutely crappy words but it's something. It's a start.

In other news, this weekend is Homecoming/Family Weekend which is a lot of Events and Lectures and Open Houses and basically just really exhausting, but it's nice to see people excited about their school. I, personally, am really excited about falling back for more sleep. To sleep! To live!
