Alex Massey on Thatcher and Palin:

"What possible interest could she have in meeting a two-bit, half-term governor of Alaska? To ask the question is to make the answer so clear that even Palin's most deluded admirers might be able to understand it."

I am drifting away from my premise and all my carefully planned notes without a net. Sad but true.

Guess we'll see what happens.

Also, I'm already behind. :(

So end of day 8: 8,509/50,000

Not impossible. I just need to do some wool gathering and try to figure out some kind of schedule so that I can be a bit more consistent. And ... stuff.

Dad's birthday dinner at the mysterious Chinese buffet down the street from my house. Their hot and sour soup is decent. And I always order the horchata. And it is really good. But ... WHY do they serve horchata?

End of day three: 4011 / 50,000

Last night in a tense nail biter of an election, my younger brother was elected to the Utah State Senate. Yes, he is a republican and yes, he is a pretty conservative one. But that is a valid lifestyle choice. I mean, some of my very best friends are ridiculously-conservative Republicans.

Also:

2,814 / 50,000
end of day two.

Also also:

Timothy Dalton on Chuck!

Day one. I did stay up until three last night for no particular reason. I did not write, I did not research. And then I got up at seven(ish) and just managed to get to work on time. So. I'm super prepared. This morning I have pulled up two quotes for my book and have added the first song to my nano playlist.

This year's (tentative) plot summary:Collapse )

Will there be daily updates? Ummm ... maybe.

The playlist so far:

Altitude, Night Stalker, the Oakenfold mix.

Yes, another post that's nothing but a link to an onion video:

It's totally the girl I work with. I should call the hotline.

Washington Post Article

"CHICAGO -- An Illinois gubernatorial candidate's name was mistakenly listed as "Rich Whitey" instead of Rich Whitney on thousands of Chicago electronic-voting machines and will be corrected, elections officials said Thursday."

Seriously. Truth is MUCH better than fiction.

Also:

An hour and fifteen minutes. This is precisely how long it takes for the custodial crew at Salt Lake Community College to show up when you call them and tell them that a seeing eye dog has left a runny and more than usually pungent pile of poo in the MIDDLE of the hall outside a classroom. I know this because I stood next to it for an hour and fifteen minutes to warn students to watch their step.

The school paper has done it again. This title may be even better than the last one.:

"South City’s children of the night"
