hey, if you are a fan of breaking bad you might want to listen to this insider podcast (but be warned, it's chock full of spoilers!).
also, did you know there is a contest to win a walk-on part on the show? weird.* and a four-day trip to alburquerque. no, really. also, i spelled albuquerque right on the first try. and yes, i entered.
this gets funnier every time i watch it. mostly because i have observed isaac do nearly this exact thing.
i have also been watching parks and recreation lately, usually while i sew many scarves for this year's close buy catalog order. gosh, i love amy poehler.
i thought about having this post be a list of nine complaints, but i could only come up with four (and two of them were driving-related, which is particularly boring to read about). the first had to do with comic sans. come on, everyone. educators, especially. comic sans is not "fun." let's have a little dignity. also? learn to love the BCC option when you're sending school-related emails to hundreds of people. oh, i though of another one! you don't write a "blog." you write a "blog post." or you "blog," verb, though i'm partial to "write."
*because...can you imagine what that part might be? a dead and partially dismembered body? a car wash customer? a dominican laundry worker?
I just started watching Breaking Bad. The first couple episodes were so violent! But the next few after that may have hooked me.
So, I think I gave up on Novel month. It may be necessary to have more of a plan before I start . . . I do, however, now have 20 rambly pages of . . . rambling. I'm going to re-group and decide a different way to challenge myself to write. :/
Oh, sorry-- here's why I originally went to comment: Do you listen to Marc Maron's WTF podcast? He did good Amy Poehler and Bryan Cranston interviews. (I usually skip some of the first 15 minutes of MM talking.)
i must confess i still have not written one single new word. i did go back through 2009's "novel" and realize that i abruptly killed off a character's mother (she appeared at a birthday party early on, and then later i wrote a long thing about how she had died when the character was a little girl). after i deleted the reference to the mother's death, i realized that i had actually LOST ground, word count-wise. so we'll see. good luck with your writing! let me know if you come up with a challenge to yourself that seems to work.
AND no, i have never listened to marc maron, but thanks to you, i am at this very moment listening to his amy poehler interview!!
good luck with your writing, too! i think i can do something with what i wrote, but i'm not sure it's a novel . . .
yes, love amy poehler. she's the coolest.
and maybe i'll enter the BB contest. that would be *really* funny.
