Halloween was a great success! Though the hammerhead shark got hot with that hammerhead hat on and eventually went around the neighborhood headless.
Meanwhile, I find it is Friday, November 1st, and I appear to be participating in NaNoWriMo and I am not ready. But I really, really want to have my December holiday this year, and there’s a book between me and it, so… *rolls up sleeves*
For those of you playing along, I am “haikujaguar” over on the NaNo site. And I am going to get started in a couple of hours! I have the afternoon to myself, until Daughter needs pick-up. I see a Starbucks, a bad cup of decaf, and a laptop in my future. *nods and goes to it*
Oh, and before I forget–I need to look up how to do make-up for webcam phone conferences. I may have been invited to do a panel remotely from across the country early next year… and if there’s one thing I’ve learned from my phone camera, it’s that lighting and make-up make the difference between, “Wow, what a nice person” and “OMG A ZOMBIE” Anyone with experience in those things (or who knows someone who has some), please educate me. :)
