I wrote 3,700 words on the NaNoWriMo book today. Yay me! I'm still behind but I should be all caught up within two days or so. And then I can fall behind again on the two upcoming office days. And I'm OD'ing on caffeine. Can you say "buzzzzzzzzz"? The ringing in my ears will be deafening by the end of November.

Oh, and I rented the first two DVDs of the first season of "Lost" from Netflix. I'm trying to catch up and see what all the fuss is about. I'll let you know if I feel as if I've missed anything over the past year. Won't be the first time.

I Scream, You Scream . . .

I once had this soft-serve ice cream called "creamsicle swirl." The orange part of the swirl didn't really taste like creamsicle, or even properly like orange of any sort.

It tasted more like St. Joseph's chewable baby aspirin. Brought back a whole lot of horrific childhood memories of having to chew a handful of those little monstrosities. They made me hate that orange taste so much that I'm surprised I don't have scurvy as an adult.

Can you tell I'm behind on my NaNoWriMo word count? Just don't ask. I'm self-editing again.
