50k in seven days?

Ell and I have been ill for 3 days with a really bad cold; not quite the flu but damn close, and I’ve had a thumping headache – (Ell calls the headache a NaNo migraine.) And today, the 8th day is an Indian summer and it will be for two days and things MUST get done outside. Deck and porch furniture... Sign in to see full entry.

Apologies for not Replying or Commenting

Life is slightly chaotic. Wednesday was child minding day and it was horrific with a 4½ year old and a 2½ year old with flu like symptoms. They had their H1N1 shots on Friday but it wasn’t the live antigen so it technically couldn’t be a reaction to that. The live one they still have to get. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Infinity Gymnasium

Yesterday was one of the week’s fitness days, where Ell goes to her aqua-fitness and I go to the weight room to see what weight can pull me off my feet. It was busier than usual for a Monday, and I had to wait for some machines or take another one until the preferred one was vacant. One of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Auctioneering or Procrastinating?

This is a curiosity post. Today’s was a Friday auction, and they are unusual because it means lots of people can’t attend because they’re working; most auctions are on Saturdays or Sundays. It was unusual for a few other reasons as well. It was an auction that seemed to consist of nothing but... Sign in to see full entry.

No Characters, No Problem?

Is this as plausible as No Plot, No Problem? My NaNoWriMo novel no longer has a plot. It does have one character but said character is becoming dizzier by the minute as his creator struggles to find a path for him to follow. NaNo starts on Sunday, and I still don’t know in which direction it is... Sign in to see full entry.

Description of a Soft-Boiled Egg

The original article can be found at http://foodsnobblog.wordpress.com/ and click on l'Arpege. This description was in the Ottawa Citizen and was written by Mike Grenby in the travel section. It refers to the way the Food-Snob described a certain soft boiled egg that was served up in a l'Arpege, a... Sign in to see full entry.

No More Moving Text

Ontario is banning the use of hand held devices while driving. The ban starts on the 26th of this month but there will be a three month grace period during which the police will turn a blind eye. The ban is long overdue. There is nothing on the road these days that chills my blood so much as looking... Sign in to see full entry.

‘The Cup of Joy?’

The minister’s intonation as he raised the communion cup to his lips prior to drinking the wine surprised me. I’ve attended countless communion services and can repeat the invocation to eat the ‘Bread of Life’ before eating the unleavened bread, from memory. I also know that we drink the non...

6 Blogging Years???

August 10th 2003 was when I joined Blogit. My theory was that I would get into the habit of writing, and the practice would hone my skills for a sparkling future of writing humour – if I made money at it, so much the better. My theory did not translate into reality. I think it was Taps who, perusing... Sign in to see full entry.

McAfee insists that my computer is still not fully protected.

And that’s after my deletion of the NaNoWriMo file. I’ve got to the stage now where I mentally thank McAfee for the information and go about my business. The NaNo file has been re-installed. Also, I received Chris Baty’s ‘ No Plot, No Problem,’ book yesterday afternoon. I haven’t opened it yet, but... Sign in to see full entry.
