First off, let me say that today is November 1 and it's the beginning of that annual Internets literary event known as NaBloPoMo. NBPM use to mean you'd write one blog post every day during the month of November. Now it means you'll write a novel with a minimum of 10,000 words per day or some crazy thing like that. I'm going to attempt to do the former again. I am not doing the latter.
The only reason I am even doing the former this month is because A) my office mate bullied me into it, B) my blog is lame as toast and needs a boost, and C) over dinner last night with the same office mate, I declared that writing was one of the two things I like to do in my free time. (The other thing I do in my free time is photography, which I've also been lame about, but that's a different tangent.) What I should have said was cooking is my other favorite pasttime, but I was a doh-head and didn't. If I had, I wouldn't be doing this NBPM* thing.
That housekeeping item out of the way, let's get things started, shall we?
Ah, hell. Forget it. After that anti-climactic intro, I'm going to table today's entry for tomorrow. The wisdom in that is A) I can say I wrote and posted something today and B) I'll have a blog entry for tomorrow by putting off what I was originally going to write today. Here, have a picture instead.
* Note to my office mate: My deliberate creation and use of an acronym is intentional, because I know it will drive you nuts and you are out to eradicate acronyms from the face of the planet. I thought I'd let you start here! I'm generous that way. xoxo
