Oh yes. A six-time NaNoWriMo winner is me. The certificate looks amazing, just to let you know.

According to the "You Won!" page, next year's Script Frenzy is in April. I've heard this from a few other places, but Google isn't telling me anything reliable. Who what when how?

I know I've been very... absent lately. I know. I've just been trying to do actual work during the break, and we know how well that turned out. But it suffices to say that Turkeyfest was good, despite Ashley's asking if I had a MySpace and her raving about SO HOT GUYS with her friend and Mark's complaining about the lack of deviled eggs (come on, now. Seriously? Make your own if you care that much) and Grandmother's being sick. Oh, and we got rain--quite a bit, too. It was actually raining on the way back here this afternoon.

But I don't know. It's that time again. I might be royally screwed this time. I have a French paper due Tuesday that I haven't started and an outline for the big French paper due Tuesday. I have yet to start either. I also have a meeting re: Goldwater at some point next week. I have not done a thing about Goldwater since our last meeting... before fall break.

I swear I'm not normally this lazy.

Here's a moment of depth for the day. I found this on the soap bar wrapper this morning:

If you want to be free, learn to live simply.
La liberté, c'est vivre dans la simplicité.


I love it because it's so true. Our lives are so complicated by all these external forces--all these papers and bills and other sundries, and we don't even bother to look beyond that most of the time. Sad, yes?

In completely different news, I've been reading articles on how to elope. You're better off not asking me why, for I won't have an answer for you. I still don't know why myself.

Finding yourself reading articles on how to elope is the universe telling you something: it's telling you to read more articles about how to elope.

I had seen that scriptfrenzy was going to be in April on the Nano site... and I would think that they would be the authority. Actually, scriptfrenzy.org still seems to say June, but they are perhaps simply not updated.

Yeah, I thought I had heard about it from you, but I'm the type to want proof. If the 'you won!' page says it, though...

Maybe the universe is telling me to elope. Granted, I don't have anyone to elope with, but we'll see what happens. I should look into this.

It's being moved to April because of feedback they got that June was the worst month outside of November to have it. ;)

I can definitely see that with all the big scriptwriting contest deadlines being inconvenient for SF in June. I just find April to be personally inconvenient--that time of year and all. Oh, the things I do for NaNo and Script Frenzy.

heh. I don't think I'm going to do SF this year. It just isn't something I'm that into, tbh.

congrats on the win! sadly I can't get my certificate to come out right. Probably because I'm about four versions behind on my Adobe Acrobat... but I'll save it till I upgrade... meanwhile, purple bar = good :-)

Thanks, and to you too! I was going to say that it looked fine in my 7.0 Adobe Acrobat, but if you're four versions behind, that might do it. :-)

And I have to agree that the purple bar is amazing in all its grape goodness.

Btw, the French paper is due Thursday. Either you made a typo or I just made you happy.

Why yes. You just made me very happy. Whew.

Also, your icon is love.
