I am so glad to see November done and gone. Nanowrimo was a bust. I got a nice condolence email from the site seeing how I didn’t get my 50K in, offering up many excuses.
I was sick, I was sick again, and then Thanksgiving… and other things.
Good news tho – I started it. Something original. Yay. Go me.
That said, I’m STILL sick, I have a headache from coughing and my ribs hurt. And I pee every time I cough. It’s disgusting and embarrassing. The weather is not helping. Tuesday’s high will be 79. Thursday’s high will be 49. I’ll never get well!
Of course, the minute midnight the 1st hit, William Edward started saying nasty things to me and his chapter should go up in the next 36 or 48 hours.
I’m concerned that someone new will pick him up and think he’s a sexual predator, what with all the stuff going on in the world right now. And he’s not. He’s not grooming her, he’s not stalking her… well he IS stalking her, but there are reasons besides the obvious coming up. I’m rather fond of William. That has shocked me. I thought William would be hard to write and hard to love, but he hasn’t been either. Roland was easy to love, but William…
Weird. Falling in love with a fictitious character YOU wrote.
Serious packing of my classroom has commenced. I have a few classes that will help me tomorrow. Okay. ONE class will help tomorrow.
I’m thinking I’m going to need some beefcake tomorrow. It’s been a while.
While down for the count (bronchitis) I decided to watch some of the things I’ve downloaded. Parks and Recreation – I wanted to like it but I quit before the first episode was finished. I just wasn’t seeing the humor or intelligence in it. I’ve also tried to watch Jersey Shore. My lord, the language and I’m not seeing anyone there with any sort of brain power. I would be devastated if my son acted like that for television. I’m crazy and I wouldn’t act like that knowing it was going to be televised. Sheesh! And they squeezed 6 seasons out of this? My God, this is what’s wrong with the world.
So I’m having problems staying interested in television shows and I’m having problems staying interested in books.
And I’ve not watch any of Berlin Station yet. Week after next. When the room is finished packed.
Our new principal has started a festive Christmas countdown. Tomorrow is Crazy Christmas Sock Day. I’m ready.
I really hope she sticks with us for the long haul. I like her, she’s tough with discipline, but the staff really likes her. I’m starting to love my job again. There will always be difficult students, but now I feel like admin has my back.
Zee did read this past month. When out to eat, the kindle was with me. In the car traveling too and from the Interior, I read. It’s becoming my bedtime habit again. A nice one. Two books last month – both Tubby Dubonnet.
I’ve got 9 of this series. I read the prequel a month ago? Everything about the series said, funny, likeable, New Orleans Lawyer with a love for good food…
I don’t know if I like Tubby or not. the prequel was quite funny, kinda of a dark, but worthy ending. Kharma. however, the first two in the series… yeah, at times it’s funny, but Tubby works with the underbelly as well as people behind the scenes and on the scene. Corrupt people. Corrupt judges, corrupt system, corrupt clients. He looks the other way at times, finds himself in situations that you have to wonder. Confessions, clients who take matters into their own hands… and at times I think I’m being too judgemental and what would I do in that situation and I think, maybe I would have done the same thing.
And that’s what bothers me about Tubby. Ah well.
Right now, I’ve picked up the first in a new Lexi Blake series. There are several Masters and Mercenaries I’ve not read yet and I’ll get to them. I just needed something fresh. We’ll see.
This is too much thinking to be doing while one has so much mucus in their head. If I could think of a worthy thing to make out of this stuff and a way to market it, I’d be a millionaire.
And I’ve not begun to decorate. Got to clean the house.
Spawn is being secretive. I’ve asked him if he has special plans tomorrow. He said – I’m thinking about it. We went to the store and he snuck off and bought something away from me checking out so…. we’ll see. Last year, he bought me a DVD burner. He wanted one bad, so he got it for me. For him to borrow, of course.
