This is Epth Nation

Epth is a state of mind, not a place. Reading this will give you a virtual drivers license in that state, but you'll still need to be 21 to purchase alcohol. And you can't get any there anyway, so stop asking.

My novel

My novel is at 10,900 words. Word on the street is there's a sex scene at around word 30,000, so cover your eyes. Just kidding.

Very's not just an excuse. I've written almost 11,000 words in 5 days! Working 2 jobs! I should be given a medal for posting just this.

Sports Guy is Insane.

If Chicago and Cleveland finish ahead of the Bucks this year, I'll eat my hat. If Cleveland finishes ahead of Miami, I'll eat your hat. And I don't know where that hat's been.

Yay! Bush won. I think everyone's excited by the thought of not seeing politcal ads for a while. Kerry won my respect with the gracious day-after concession. This is how these things are supposed to work. But what becomes of Kerry's great plan to hug our allies and love them into supporting us? The answer is unclear, but we'll see.

At some point last night, extremely local and tan TV anchor Steve "I'm so" Eager made the one slip of the tounge every journalist and talking head fears -- he referred to the "elections" and the "erections." Poor guy. Hope they fire him, he's way too creepily tan. Plus, I'm jealous of his relationship with Heather Hays, in that he gets to sit by her and stuff.

No Footnotes

In deference to my wife's wishes I have decided not to use footnotes in the main text of my NANoWriMo novel. It will have a few footnotes in fake excerpts from other sources and so on, but I'm using parentheses for the parenthetical comments. I'm skeptical of this, but we'll see how it goes. I'm also trying as hard as I can to not sound like David Foster Wallace, so losing the footnotes was probably a necessity.

I may be going to the Mavericks/Kings game tonight, election night, because the student who was going to go with her may be bailing. So that's good -- I won't get to see the election madness until it's pretty much over (yeah right). I get to watch basketball and avoid theDisneyfranchised voters.

Speaking of Disneyfranchisement, my wife called me this morning to alert me of possible voter intimidation in my precinct, as there was a cop car in the parking lot next door to the polling place. But then she remembered that the cop's there every day, and that the police are our friends. Yeah, just like the Visitors were.

As Far As You Know

Hey holmses,

My novel is officially in progress. 1612 words. It's great so far, I know that at least I personally will love it. Working title: As Far As You Know. I'll post some excerpts here soon.

Also, Halloween came and went and turned out to be not so bad. I've gotta stop whining about it. I even got a little candy while delivering pizzas last night. And that's not a euphemism for anything.
