If It Bleeds

I finished If It Bleeds today and it was great!  I just searched at the e-library and found a new book to try. It's post-apocalyptic and it looks interesting. It will be a possible new series as this is the first of several.  We'll see how I like it! It's got good reviews and the blurb looked interesting so we'll see.

I just realized that I was posting this and got distracted! lol. I was watching a video about the best and worst MacBooks of the past decade.  This little guy was on the best five list. Yay!  I then looked up RAM and found that I can upgrade the RAM in this guy to 4x what it is now.  That should make it run so much better.  I'm definitely going to look into upgrading my RAM!


Oh Starbucks!

I decided today that I was going over to Starbucks to get myself a smoke butterscotch latte.  Before I went, checked the app to see if I could order one.  They were sold out of them.  That means they are out until they bring it back next year. Now I have to figure out something new to try.  I'm so sad.  It was bad enough when they took away my cascara.  Now, this.  I'll find something I like as much, or close.  I'll just have to do some experimenting.  This is really not the time to be doing that though. Oh well!

I got my writing done today. I ended up typing over 2000 words.  I figured it out today and I only needed to do 1200 a day to finish NaNo on time and I went and did 2000.  Well, when it's flowing, I'm going to type!  I might be going past 50,000 because I'm pretty sure I won't be able to get everything in there I want to in 8000 more words.

I am anxious to get back to my current read. I finally had to stop last night so I could go to bed.  I'm really to get back to it.  It's so good!

 


40k badge!

I just hit the 40,000 mark on Camp NaNo. I have now written twice as much as I planned. I think I'm just going to change it to a goal of 50,000. I am surely going to hit it.  Let me do that now. Okay done!  It's now going to be at least 50,000 words!  Go me!

I didn't do a lot today. I've had a nasty headache.  It's one of those that feels like someone is shoving an ice pick in my forehead. Not good!  I hope to sleep it off tonight.  I read the second story in the new Stephen King book.  It was good, too! I'm going to read the third tonight and possibly start on the last.  It's supposed to be book-length and it's a Holy Gibney story, so that will be cool! She was in the Mr. Mecedes trilogy and The Outsider.  She is a good character and it will be fun to see her again.

For now, I'm signing off.  I want to get a few things done before settling in with my Kindle.  I know I have mentioned it before, but I LOVE my Kindle! :)


Ouch

I've had a killer headache all day today.  I started a puzzle, but because of my headache, I didn't get very far.  I've only got the outline done.  I'll get more done tomorrow. Hopefully my head won't hurt tomorrow or at least not as bad. 

I was up until after 4am the last two nights. Why? I was reading the new Stephen King book! lol  I finished it last night and it was excellent!  I'll go back to the other book I put on hold to read it. I don't know if I will do it tonight or not. It depends on how my head feels.  Right now it's hard to just type this post!  I'll share a picture of the small bit of puzzle I've done and I'll see you tomorrow!

Almost there!

I'm now less than 5000 words from completely NaNo for my second year in a row!  I didn't write as much tonight as I usually do. It was my lowest word count of the month, but I got some done.  I have been so tired all day.  I woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep.  I finally did get back to sleep and it was time to get up.  I've been cranky and out of sorts all day!

I walked to the post office and mailed my one pen pal letter.  I had just one in my box!  At least I did have one, right?  I walked home, but with the longer walk, I got back later than usual.  I could have done my workouts, but I was really tired and sore so I decided I'd do them later.  I relaxed and then had lunch. I rested a bit after lunch and then did my workouts.  I was glad to get those done. I had almost been tempted to skip them.  I did those and had some dinner.  I fixed some coffee and sat down to do today's NaNo.  Like I said, it was a short day's write, but I got some written.  I only wrote 1164 words today.  I'm just over 45,000 though, so that is good!

I finished the first short story in Strange Weather a few nights ago but haven't started on the second one. I may do that tonight.  I"m currently listening to Full Dark, No Stars on my walk.  I finished 1922 today and started on Big Driver.  Full Dark, No Stars is excellent.  All four stories are good ones.  My favorite being 1922.

 


Guess where I am?

Yes, I'm a Starbucks. What a surprise, eh? :p  I came over to get my pen pal letters and NaNo done.  I have written two of my three letters and written over 2300 words for NaNo. I figured I would do my blog post while here, too.  I might write the other letter here and I might wait until I get home.  I'm not sure yet.  I was going pretty good on my writing when a friend kept interrupting me with texts!  That got me off track for a bit, but he finally stopped and I got back into it.  Over two thousands words means I got back on track! lol  I probably won't write anymore on NaNo tonight.  That is a good place to stop.

 I got in my walk today and it was cold, but not too bad.  I came home and did my workouts after that.  I had lunch and then packed up my messenger bag and headed over here.  When I got here, it was about 4:45.  They are doing a promotion from the 9th - 13th of bogof on the holiday drinks.  This place was ROLLING when I got here. I didn't even think about that crazy promo before I came.  I had to wait in a loooong line to buy my drink and a longer one to pick up my drink!  There was absolutely no where to sit either.  Luckily, I saw two girls sitting at a little table and they didn't have drinks. I was hoping they were just sitting waiting on their drinks.  They were!  When they got up to get them, I made sure they weren't going to sit back down and grabbed their table! :P

Not my favorite table, but hey, it was somewhere to sit.  It's cleared out  alot in here now, but there are still a lot of people at the tables.  I thought the guy who was sitting at my favorite table had left.  I saw him get up, put on his jacket and head away from his table.  I packed up to move to it and saw his stuff was still on it. Oops!  The end chair on the big table was open, so I just sat here.  I felt sort of silly.  Oh well.  This seat isn't too bad and it's close to my favorite spot in case he does leave. :p

By the way, my Starbucks got in their Holiday cards.  You should see the huge ass stack of them I got. I'll take a picture when I get home if I can get them all in the picture. LOL I stopped counting at thirty something.  Really!   was so happy because I was afraid our Starbucks wouldn't get the whole set.  I think I got them all except for the ones in the packaging.  I am pretty sure you can't get those without loading them.  Some of them are just multiples of the ones that are single but some are the shaped ones.  I would love to have some of those too, but I will have to check and see.  I'm pretty sure though, those are buy them only.  I must have looked like some kind of weirdo going to the gift card board and grabbing a handful. :p

Anyway.  I have done NaNo, I have written all but one letter.  All I need to do when I get home is my French lesson.  I'd do that here, but I don't think I have my earbuds with me.  I have my bed linen in the dryer at home so I should be able to go home and put it back on the bed, do my French and relax.  I want to read more on Sleeping Beauties. I finally made it past the half way point last night.  It's getting more interesting as I go!
