nanowrimo: nano is coming

I smell something minty.

Midterm grades are (supposedly) in. I have only one grade. Strange. I know I didn't do terribly in any of my classes, though I don't suspect any A's this time. I do have a B+ in French and a N/A in DEs. Hrm, what does that mean?

Anyway, NaNoWriMo starts next Wednesday. With this I bring you a poll concering the event just for my own curiosity.

Out of curiosity, how'd you find out about NaNoWriMo?

If you were an object in my room, what would you be?



There we go. Have fun!

Free food!

Be There or Be Squared!


I should probably get said food on Thursday.

At work tonight I drew a derivative and an integral in a fight. The derivative had a sword and the integral had a wand. It amused me greatly.

Hrm, maybe I should start a math comic...except I've run into two fairly new math comics recently. It's an idea though, even though I can't draw.

Now, sleeptime!
