We're dead in this ghost town ...

The Egypt project was successfully delivered to school and Cole breathed a big sigh of relief. I'm just glad it made it there in one piece. Dealing with a hysterical child over a destroyed project is nothing to laugh about. Fortunately it wasn't an issue.

Call of Duty: Black Ops comes out tomorrow. Or tonight at midnight if you're a die-hard. Cole wanted to go to the midnight release at Game Stop but I told him no. For the record, the sweet boy was asleep before 9. I have no idea how he thought he was going to stay awake until midnight. I mean, please.

Before I post my NaNo stats, here's an excerpt from an email I sent to the talented and hilarious oddmonster:
LOOK AT THE WAY WE HAMMER OUT THE DETAILS ON THIS! Fear us, internet and people of the publishing world, for we shall rattle your puny cages and make you QUAKE!

Why do I find that so damn funny? Why?

Okay, NaNo stats:

I didn't hit the 25K I was aiming for (I kinda thought I was aiming high, but I figured better high than low. Or something like that.) but I'll totally get it tomorrow. Totally.

I also posted a recap of the first week of NaNo, which was really more like the last two days of NaNo. Whatever. I've written a lot today. My brain is starting to do weird things.
NaNo Update: Looking back on week 1

And book stuff:
First off, I won the book Bluebeard's Machine by Mari Fee from Moira Rogers through her website. It's a steampunk novel that I thought looked amazing when it popped up on my radar a few months back and I'm so, so excited to have the chance to read it. I've been in the hugest naughty steampunk mood lately. Since I didn't even know there was such a thing as naughty steampunk until recently, this is a very fortuitous win.

And second, 30 days of books... Day 57 - I thought this book was going to be totally post-apocalyptic until I read the synopsis. Now I think it's pre-apocalypse. I think I'm a little saddened.

Okay. I'm getting tired. I have to get my sleep so that I can write my fingers to the bone tomorrow.
