last post of November PLUS 10 on Tuesday

So. I won NaNoWriMo. I finished writing 50,000 words yesterday, verified it on the NaNo site, and was proclaimed a winner, but I didn't feel like one. I actually felt very meh about it and I think it's because I didn't really care about my story at all. I only finished it out of spite, really, because I wanted to say I won. It's finished in that it's more than 50,000 words long, but it's not finished in that it comes to a satisfying ending. And it probably never will because it's SO BAD that I never want to think about it again. Note to self: don't start knocking up characters and having others make out and letting people get kidnapped by bad guys JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN. Anyway. NaNo is over and, once I post this, NaBlo is also over so I'm left feeling all, "now what?"

Well, right now, "now what" means 10 on Tuesday so...that's something, I guess. Wah wah waaaaaah.

1. Where are you from? Have you lived there your whole life?

I am from Narnia or Hogwarts or Terabithia, which really means I live inside my head and, yes, I've lived there my whole life.

2. How would you classify your clothing style?


3. What kind of car do you drive?

A blue one.

4. What would your dream home look like if you could have it (or already do!)?

It would look like Hogwarts, obviously. And it would have a time machine (with a clear titanium bubble) in the garage.

5. Do you have kids, and if so, how many and how old were you when you had them?

I don't have any that I know of.

6. What is your favorite hobby?

I would say reading, but reading is more of a necessity to me than a hobby in that I NEED IT TO LIVE.

7. Are you going to have any New Year’s resolutions for 2011?


8. What is something, if anything, that you’d want to change about yourself?

Well, I wish I could fly, if that's what you mean.

9. What is something that you love about yourself?

I hate these questions.

10. Pick one of the following: Someone to cook for you, someone to do your laundry, or someone to do your dishes.

All of the above, duh.


  1. You're a winner! I knew you could do it. Also, I'm totally impressed that you managed NaNo, NaBloMe, AND the Harry Potter Challenge all in one month. Seriously. I couldn't even do one of those.

  2. I am finishing NaBloPoMo today and OMG so glad. I did it because it to honor my one year blogiversary, but I am pretty sure I shamed my blog. I do not have enough to say about anything to write every day. Maybe I should have centered my posts around Harry Potter - that makes sense with a food blog, right?

    I can't even imagine doing NaNo and blogging and HP. Crazy!

  3. Man, you're like my November hero.

  4. Man, you're like my November hero.

  5. Aww, your answer to number 9 took me back to "Blah blah blah my name's Vox and I hump dogs."

  6. When you say 'half-assed', does that mean that one butt cheek is bared at all times? That seems pretty adventurous for your neck of the woods. I mean, it be fine in Toledo, but, well....that's Toledo. Bare assery is the tamest thing you'll see up there.

  7. Number 1 is the best answer I have ever seen for that sort of question.

  8. I'm so proud of you. You're my hero.

  9. Joe, well, I half-assed at least two of those things so it's really not that impressive.

    Mary Sue, I couldn't even center all my posts around Harry Potter...I sort of felt like I cheated with all the video posts but oh well!

    Gretchen, see my above comment to Joe. Hee.

    h!a! Vox DID hump dogs.

    Sir, if I tried that, half of my ass would fall off. Cause it's cold, see.

    NTE and it's true!

    Ashley, see my above comment to Gretchen. Heeheehee.
