Avoid the strong coffee at Au Bon Pain unless you want to lie down and moan about the world falling onto your head for about half-an-hour. I’m beginning to think I’m a magnet for spiked caffeine.
On the other hand, I got to meet a bunch of crazy writers for NaNoWriMo this afternoon. The photographer for Nashua’s The Telegraph also showed up, but the chances of me seeing those pictures and the article accompanying are pretty slim. It was neat to finally put faces to online personalities–in some ways it was comforting. These are ordinary people (most with jobs) who want to write a novel in a month. Not a great novel, mind you, but a novel nonetheless. I now have a real, a concrete, support group and not just a faceless internet void occasionally sputtering comments.
And I was momentarily distracted by the pet store in the mall. I was shocked. They don’t sell cats. Maybe that’s why all the people I know around here are dog people.
Everything2.com. Janelle from the Nano group mentioned this site as a possible time waster. It looks like a big link fest for members. Hm. Maybe I’ll look at it some more once I get out of this coffee-induced headache.
