Rick got me a neat gift that I had been wanting, it's the one in black:
It is nicer than I thought, even though it is new, it has the heft of an old fashioned phone as well as the ring of one.
Later on in the evening we went out for a bit and word got out that it was my birthday-it gets a little blurry after that. Everyone that knew me decided to buy me tequila, oy. I actually held up pretty well and didn't have a hangover.
A few rather unrelated incidences put a new idea in my head. Actually and old idea that never got off the ground. First I read a blog entry from my friend Ginger about the upcoming NoNoWriMo event. I felt a tingle of excitment, but then put it off. Then later I was reading a webpage and there was a link to it again. Still I put it off.
My dad had given me a book to read, called Level 7. It is written in first person, which I thought if I ever wrote something it would be in that format. Then I started thinking and the next thing I knew, I opened up Word and began writing. I have written twice now, but up to 18 pages and the story keeps telling itself. It is fun. I have no high ideas that I'll be a bestseller soon, but it's a start-a learning experience.
Anyone else having trouble with splog on your blog? I have been getting about 2 comments a day. I found this place to report it, not sure if it helps, but it's a start!
