Happy Halloween AND a Scary NaNoWriMo’s Eve

Posted in Holidays, Writing on 31 October 2008 by jason

First of all, Happy Halloween, all! Be safe, check your candy, and remember that [insert pagan god/goddess here] is the reason for the season!

Also, tomorrow begins NaNoWriMo. I am afraid. Very afraid. I got out a story I wrote that was about 1,700 words and you know what? That’s a LOT of frickin’ words! I’m going to be writing one of those every day!

Good luck to everyone who is participating! Wish me luck. I will keep you updated from my mobile command center/laptop.

Damn it!

You know the Kent Halloween party the Otter and I’ve planned to go to all year? The one for which I spent $50, plus hours at Goodwill stores looking for the perfect costume? Yeah, that was last night, not next week. So I missed it.

I’m seriously at a loss. Now what? I’ve got a costume that I was excited about, and nowhere to wear it. I am so pissed at myself for not double checking the date. I just assumed that the Hallowen party would be on, you know, maybe Halloween?

Does anyone know of anything going on next week in Akron or Cleveland?

A sneak preview of my Halloween costume…

I went to a Halloween party this weekend, before I got sick. The bad news is that I only remembered to take a few pictures, and it was my mom’s camera, so I didn’t take any great ones (I mean that I’m unfamiliar with the camera, that that it’s a bad camera). I did get one taken of me, in my costume. So here it is.

I hope to have more pics when I do Kent on Halloween.

Movie Review: Meet the Spartans

If you gave me the equipment and told me to make the worst movie ever, I would put Meet the Spartans in my DVD player and film the TV.

Sick. Again. Blah.

Well, I just got over another one of those colds. You know the ones: you sneeze, your throat’s sore, you hallucinate all night, having visions of NaNoWriMo meetings in warehouses of moving crates while the angle of death, a man with a photocopy of Richard Nixon’s face for a head, chases people around with a chainsaw.

That’s where I was Monday night. Feverish, run-down, and possibly insane. I actually called off work, which is something I never do. I’m feeling better now, though.

I’ve really need some health insurance.

Calendars divide
The summer from the autumn;
The weather does not.

Patches of turquoise
pierce the silver morning sky
before the rains come.
