Pop Tarts for brekkie and no, I don’t feel one bit bad about it at ALL.

Of course the Prince’s cold would strike me on the Monday we’re heading back to work. Of COURSE. (Pass the tissues...)

Lord Boxnoggin has taken to bed to protest the arrival of winter.

Specifically, MY bed.

"There is a tendency to think that tragedy occurs in the middle of great and impressive action, but a fair number of tragic figures simply cannot manage the everyday details of basic human life..."

Religion, Christianity 

I've said this multiple times and I'll keep saying it until it sinks in:

Christianity based upon the standard Bible is a series of careful selections of scriptures designed primarily to solidify power and justification for Constantine as the Roman emperor. The First Council of Nicaea decided what was and was not "real" Christian canon. Variant Christian and Gnostic groups with different and additional gospels were suppressed soon after.

It's the very last day of NaNo. Whether you "finished" or not, you did well, and I'm proud of you.

You know the ones, where it's just one thing after another, no time to take a breath, for longer than your nerves can take? Yeah. Like that.

5k on FINDER'S WATCHER. This book doesn't want to end. I have only a few days to devote to stabbing it, but it's looking like it might be one of those fights that last half the movie.

I mean, they never do go the way one expects, which is one way they're like real life. Possibly the only way, though.

3k on FINDER'S WATCHER today. That sex scene didn't go the way I thought it would. Huh.

"Patented in 1857, it comprised of a mechanism of vibrating diaphragm, lever and hog's bristle which scratched sound into soot-coated paper or glass."

(However, the little terrors I birthed left me no Greek honey yoghurt, so we're back at square one...)
