Huh? and more...
I had hoped to catch up this weekend, and then the weekend got away from me. Sadly, due to fighting with the partner, no writing was done Monday & Tuesday. So now I am REALLY behind (I'm at 5.5k).

I'm still feeling positive. I get in and write when I can. I am not feeling needlessly stressed. All that good stuff. But I am hoping I can find some nice chunks of time this coming weekend...AND MAKE GOOD USE OF THEM. That last part always trips me up.

Thank you for voting yes on Prop 8.  Now I have one less reason to want to stay in this state.  I wouldn't want your children corrupted by having to see me out in public.

Wrote 770 words yesterday.  Not a daily total to be proud of, but I haven't written fictional squat in forever, so 770 is better than nothing.  Plus I made really great progress on the "online" portion of my Field Assignment project, I have all the dates in and now I need to add pics and links.  Still a lot to go, but I am still VERY happy with the progress. 

I'm guessing I'll be stressed by the end of the week, when I need to have the online version, the paper, and the weekly reading complete.  But now...feeling positive.  Plan to start novel writing soon and then switch back over to the Field Assignment tonight.

Just got my grade for essay #1.  An A.  I am so VERY happy.  Especially given it involved much swearing on my part, since we had to take 2 "themes" fromt he class and tie them to 2 newspaper stories each.  So discussing 2 themes over 4 stories is a bit much, considering the word count was supposed to be 1600.  Luckily we could go over, which I did...in 1 day.  This led me to think: "Why can't I get word counts like this during NaNo?"

But...happy about the grade.  Now I have to work on my Field Assignment Paper and its corresponding "online presentation."  I will post that when I am done.  I chose the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden.  I visited over the summer with my mother and liked it, so I thought it would make an interesting subject for a field assignment that needs to tie in various themes in CA history.  I walked their grounds today, took some pictures and a couple of vid shots for the online project.  Now I have to see how this all comes together.   As I mentioned the other day, I plan to use Vuvox for this.

So we just got back from a very short vacation in Ventura. 2 nights, on the beach, with the dog.

We haven't been on vacation together in 8 years. Last time was a three day-two night Vegas vacation. That first day was fun. As was day 2 until 3:15pm when I called the dog sitter who said "I was just about to call you...I can't find Pokey." He was staying at here place with her 3 dogs. He knew her, the house, and the dogs as I often housesat for them and Pokey would tag along. So we drove back from Vegas a day early. Luckily, someone stopped him as he cut through a parking lot 2.5 miles away from where he started. Though to give him credit, he was following the route I would drive to get home.

So....no vacation since then.

We had fun, though we didn't get to go out to eat because the hotel didn't allow guests to keep dogs unattended in the room, and the little fish & chips place down the way was closed, so no outdoor eating. But it was time away and much playing on the beach. Which is fine with us. I would have pictures, but the camera died (bought a new one this morning).

Now it's back to the grind...and figuring out how this whole "buy a house in RI" thing will work.

And a pic from the new camera:

I'm hoping to use this format for a "web project" I have to do for my California History class.

Shoot me now.


And I'm not sure how understanding kids with disabilities is a qualification for vice-president.  Would that be a qualification for a male candidate?

I think I'm coming down with a cold.  Only good thing about it is that it should be done by the time I leave on vacation next week (nothing special, 2 nights in ventura, but the first time we've had an actual vacation in years).

Car is "fixed", though I still don't think it runs quite right.  The the mechanic assures me it is fine, and if I got a new fuel pump I could drive to NY and back several times.  I REALLY doubt that.
