Daily Stats:
Words: shoo-be-do
Caffeine: morning cup + midmorning cappuccino
Evil Calories: I now have a candy jar at my desk. I write, and I eat Smarties. Happy girl.
Reality TV: suspended due to NaNoWriMo (not really, am watching ANTM and the premiere of Top Chef NY...shhhhhhh, don't tell!)

Just a quick update:

a) It snowed here yesterday. One word: PUKE!!!! It's not even freakin' December. I loathe snow. Don't try and make me like it cuz it won't work. Don't give me crap about how great skiing or snowboarding or cross-country-yoga-snow-shoe-spoon-hockey is. I spent 10 years of my life in Alaska. Been there, done that, now want sunshine and swimming pools year round.

b) I'm NaNo-ing like the wind. So much so that at this very moment, I cannot remember when I last showered. Gross, I know. But, hubby hasn't kicked me out of bed yet, so I guess I haven't reach the yetti stage yet.

c) This is what I would look like with Gwyneth Paltrow hair:

In case you were wondering...which I'm sure you were. Now you can sleep at night.

Gwyneth needs to have her roots done.

I'm so sorry about the snow! It's pouring rain like crazy here, but at least it's still semi-warm. Feel free to meet me in Vegas anytime.

I'm thinking (and I'm a stylist when I'm not a writer or a painter) that you should back away from the blonde. But hey, it' just my opinion (albeit professional, sought after and paid for by masses [not really masses, but, you know]).

thank you for the opportunity to use multiple parenthesis and even a new set of brackets.


Vivi Alden said...

Oh, come on, you don't think I look like Gwyneth? Even if you look from across the room? And squint?

No, I'm kidding, it's a little "off" for me, but this hairstyler website thingy is the most fun thing since the Mad Libs website. It's hilarious. You should see me with Amy Winehouse hair.

You've lapped me in NaNo! That's something to be proud of.

And so what if you smell. Your manuscript doesn't know the difference!

Tracey said...

I have a bowl of those addictive little coffee crisps on my desk thanks to my evil friend Kellie.

Awesome that you're back into the NaNo'ing full throttle. I'm still managing to make it into the shower, so the only thing that stinks at my house is my manuscript!

I'm waiting for the Amy Winehouse pic...

Kelley said...

um. hmmm.

ah, hell. I know we don't know each other, but we women have to have each other's backs. not so much on the Gwenyth. sorry. it's the roots thing, not you. I swear.

Carrie Harris said...

I don't even think that Gwenyth hair looks good on GWENYTH!

And somehow, we were lucky enough to escape the snow. You must be further north than I am. Of course, I'm so far south that I could spit and hit Ohio.

Elizabeth said...

No snow in Vancouver. No Gweneth either. I would not look good with hair like that, you do though. It's very hip. Got a good flat iron?
