Procrastinations, and celebrations...

So I started my nano a couple of hours ago, wrote 134 words, and then started procrastinating and pissing around again. Since then I've written significantly more than 134 words on another forum argument, and on Guardian Comment. Bah. So I've decided to come and write more than 134 words on here, too. *sigh*

Happy distinctly belated Halloween! Look at this comic, it's fab. Link from andrewducker.

laerad and gwinniegirl were over last night. We played Pirates, which has the best little ships ever and is a lot of fun even when laerad just kills me all the time because he has Tactics and I don't. Must read the Art of War, dammit. And I'm going to buy more booster packs because I have no tiny ships and no medium-sized ships.

We also watched the pilot of Dead Like Me - I loved it! It's one of the most intelligent shows I've seen in a while, and also funny and real and sad. And Callum Blue is very pretty, though having just spent ten minutes looking for a good picture, it seems like he's one of those people who look better in movement than in a still picture. And he's been in Doctors, which amuses me. Also (in Dead Like Me, not Doctors) - Inigo Montoya! Heh! I totally didn't recognise him, but in my defence I've read the book (the Princess Bride, for anyone looking befuzzled) more than I've seen the film.

I can't believe there's only one clip of "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." on YouTube, and it's dreadful quality. Well, there is another one, but it's dubbed into French which takes something away from it!

Nano, yes.

Dead Like Me is fabu! I was pissed when they canceled it.

And yes, Callum Blue IS very pretty. He has a yummy mouth. I think it's the smirk. (He was also in Princess Diaries 2 and shockingly non-smarmy in it!)

I suppose it got two seasons, which is better than Firefly... Bah. Everything seems to get cancelled really quickly these days (though if they don't get cancelled we start moaning they've gone crap by about the sixth season, I suppose, like Buffy and X Files :o))

134 words is pretty good. I can sometimes fall into procrastination after only one sentence.

That *is* one sentence, heh (well, maybe.) Excessively long sentences are a bad habit of mine.

You'll need more work if you're to attain Proustian standards ;)

ooh I love Dead Like Me! And hey, you started your Nano, right? That's good!

Yup! And I will do more today.
