The 2500 and Other Stuff

Excitement seems to be percolating around the blogosphere right now, and I'm excited, too -- for the prospect of writing 2500 words per day for 30 days. This is what I have undertaken, along with my 30 days of yoga, for the first month of my 35th year.

The prospect of doing both of these things simultaneously is somewhat frightening, but I am taking the opportunity while I may. I can't depend on it ever popping up again in this way.

Other things I'm excited about?

  • The Boat that Rocked/Pirate Radio is finally being released.
  • I get to see my family in less than a month for my favorite holiday.
  • Christmas music is in the near future.
  • I can finally wear my favorite scarf again.
  • It's cool enough to cook things like chili and curry (not the best foods for Vegas summers).
  • I can get out the knitting (also not the best summertime activity as having a lapful of wool is sweaty).
  • I sent my wedding ring to be sized down a size and a half.
  • I can get back into some of my smaller clothes.
  • Bubblebaths.
  • A massage and pedicure on Monday.
  • All of our wine from Napa is finally home.
Okay, so that's that.  Happy Halloween (or Devil's Day - as my grandmother used to call it - not the good grandmother).  Brace yourselves for November, it's tomorrow.

The cultures that most use chilis and curries tend to be really hot -- India, Thailand, Mexico, etc... The spices actually help keep you cool.

I can't believe that there's someone out there who is actually looking to 679 insipid versions of Winter Wonderland and Frosty the Snowman.

I should have qualified "Christmas Music." I don't want to hear that crap. I like putting on my own music at home and listening to that. Frosty needs to die. Or melt...
