Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Sarah: "Which reminds me, you've got some overdue NaBloPoMo assignments, no?"

Sarah, did you used to be a nun? Because that's exactly what the nuns said in high school, if you take out NaBloPoMo and put in chemistry.

Last night I was so tired I climbed into bed at 8pm. Around 9:30 I woke up and realized that if I didn't get up right then and publish a blog post, I would fail at NaBloPoMo. That realization was not enough to get me out of my nice warm bed, sorry.

Besides, last year I posted faithfully every single day and didn't win ONE prize. So clearly it's fixed anyway. I'll try to keep it up for the rest of the month, just so I can say I did. But keep in mind...I'm going to be on an 18-hour train ride to Portland twice this month, so who knows what's going to happen.

BTW, does anyone know if Amtrak has AC outlets on board? 18 hours is a hell of a long time to expect DVD player batteries to hold up.

Heh heh heh.

I use this phrase regularly with my kids. Interestingly, it typically does involve chemistry.

You too will turn nunlike when your boys are in high school and their grades slip from A's to D's practically overnight because of missing assignments.

And they will respond appropriately. Just like their old nun, er, mom.

Why do we put so much pressure on ourselves? Oy! the guilt!

As Sister Mary Bernard used to say, "A job worth doing is worth doing, is worth doing well." Now if that isn't a good excuse for skipping the whole thing, I don't know what is!
