Half-Way Day

Daily Stats
Words: 10,000 (yeah right...I also plan on winning the lotto and suddenly losing all my cellulite)
Nanowrimo Novel Word Count: 18,627
Caffeine: morning cup + midmorning cappuccino
Evil Calories: Amping up for those chocolate croissants
Reality TV: suspended due to Nanowrimo (big lie, watched Project Runway)

So it's Half-Way Day for all us Nanowrimos. As you can see from my word count, I'm about 6500 words behind, so it will be a day full of words sprints. In other words, it will be a day full of incoherent babble, but hopefully some of it will make sense come December.

On another note, let's talk about Project Runway for a moment. Why, why, why did they keep that goddess loving, tree hugging, patchouli wearing nut job? Now, I agree, that other girl's construction skills were lacking, but to send her home over Moonbeam McHippiePants? Did you SEE the back of her dress? As Tim Gunn would say, it looked like it came right out of the vomitorium. And she didn't even finish the dry-heave inducing thing! It was all shabby at the sleeves. And then she took a nap, most likely to work through the hallucinations from all the acid she dropped before coming on the show. And what was with her lame-ass excuse on the runway? "I should have listened to my instincts and cut it off". Yeah, are these the same instincts that are telling you to put the dress ON and sew it, you fruitcake? Did you see the look on Heidi's face? I'm fairly certain she thought she was nuttier than squirrel poo.

Ok, must go write. Write, write, write. Tah-dee-da!

I KNOW!! But you knew they had to keep the crazy one. There always has to be a nutjob. I cannot wait to hear Tim's podcast on this one. Plus, the super queen with the 80's hair who did that jacket that Tim thought was well-constructed but all wrong since the fabric was asymmetrical. I hope Tim has commentary on the judges loving that.

I dig the bald dude who won, but I can't zero in on anyone else yet.
