National Novel Writing Month [Its That Time Of Year Again]

I wrote a ton about this last year, mostly because I had the time to both keep up with a blog and write a partially crappy novel.

With the full time job, though, neither of these things has been done properly. Although I'm succeeding partially at NanoWriMo, keeping right on pace. So that's going okay, but mostly because I'm getting a good thousand words in during my lunch breaks.

In other NaNo news, someone is apparently writing a comic strip while participating:

[EDIT: OMG for some reason the format was off. The cute comic and others like it can be found at the web address below. I can't figure out why its broken, I have a word count to catch up on!]

[Found here]

Apparently she's also created a hashtag for those behind in their word counts, called #nanopanic. Pretty awesome.

And now back to writing.

Facebook now catering to my nostalgia

In case you can't read it, it says, "Re-live the good old days, come and check out the video to Blur's classic tune, "Girls and Boys". We all know it's awesome!"

Wow. Facebook is now a little eerie in its accuracy. Thanks....I think. I wonder who paid for that advertisement, and what they expect out of it. Me watching the video doesn't do anything monetary for anybody. Are they prepping their U.S. audience for a (possible) tour and want to refresh fans memory?
