So, I barely got ANY writing done at all yesterday, only a few hundred words or so, because I was running around the whole day. So today, I was, oh, only 5,000 words behind! BUT I TOTALLY PWNED THAT BITCH (thanks to syntheticjesso and her controling powers of jerkdom), and now have 16,745 words, 80 more than my goal for today :) I'll try to get ahead over the course of this week.
AND NOW FOR THE NON-NANOWRIMO PART OF THE PROGRAM.
So, I shouldn't be allowed to go into any places that sell things I may want to buy. I went to Wal*Mart yesterday to buy my mom the new Bob Dylan album for her birthday, and I finally caved in and bought the new Weird Al album, because, GEEZ LOUISE HOW HAS IT GONE SO LONG WITH A WEIRD AL ALBUM EXISTING AND ME NOT OWNING IT???? I don't know.
The point is, while I was there, I saw about four hundred other things that I wanted, and while now, in the comfort of my home, I know that I'm a perfectly legitimate human being having not bought them, at the time, it felt as if I NEEDED them, and my mind began to devise ways I could afford them, like, you know, going broke.
I DO NOT NEED MORE STUFF, SELF, WE TOTALLY JUST HAD THIS DISCUSSION. Weird Al will totally have to do for now.
And that's okay, because he did a parody of R. Kelly's "Trapped in the Closet", which is some ten minutes long, and so is the parody, "Trapped at the Drive Thru", and it's AMAZING and I can't stop listening to it. There's also a beautiful ballad about his pancreas ("My spleen just doesn't matter, don't care about my bladder, but I don't leave home without my pancreas"), and style parodies of Rage Against the Machine and Cake.
And, guys, did you know Weird Al is MARRIED? He got married, like FIVE YEARS AGO. And he has a kid. I don't think I can handle this news. I'll just pretend it's media lies (even though it's totally on his official site).
