As of tomorrow I will have three days to finish my novel. I am nowhere near the ending, however, so I suspect that it will be longer than 50,000 words when all is said and done. I currently have over 43,000 words. I have done most of this without caffeine and I am dang proud of myself. When I have finished writing for this month I will tell you all about the experience of participating in NaNoWriMo. I will then save all of the information off of my computer. My computer will then be packed into a box and sent off to someplace far away where strangers will repair its motherboard and return it to me free of charge. It will work better once they do that. In fact, it will earn its name: The Heart of Gold, after the ship in "Hitchikers Guide." But this does mean something. I probably won't be online much for the first couple weeks of December due to the missing computer. Don't expect many posts from yours truly.

Try pickled jalapeno peppers and ginger beer to keep you awake on long nights. Works for me! It's better than caffeine.

Sounds interesting. Unfortunately, pickled anything will make me very ill. Ginger beer has sulfites in it as well because of the corn syrup. Sadness. Corn syrup is my arch nemesis.

Sadness indeed! Poor Esther!
And I thought as a Republican I could feel no compassion!
