An Agreement

NaNoWriMo 2008 is fast approaching. Have you signed up yet? In preparation, my TAS and I have agreed to do some writing exercises together in the month of October. We both have the very excellent book of writing excercises The 3am Epiphany, so each Monday in October I will choose by random number generator a number that corresponds to the number of an excercise in the book. We’ll spend the week writing it and post the results of our efforts on our respective blogs the following Friday.

Want to play along? Get yourself a copy of The 3am Epiphany* and let me know if you want to join in by leaving a comment here by Sunday 10/5. And spread the word, will ya? If there’s enough interest, I’ll do an email list and/or Mr. Linky thing to get everybody writing and reading and practicing for our Olympic event–novelling. Sound like fun?

*Don’t have it? Don’t want to fork over the cash? I totally understand. Check your local library. Also, you could always take note of the assignment number and head over to Borders or B&N and take a peek at the exercise for that week.

Channel Surfing Tuesday

Because we need a break from “financial Armageddon” here at Chez Interrupted:

Here’s a great video of 24 hours of world wide air traffic. Hypnotic.

Here’s a funny video that asks “What if the Sarah Palin story were a Disney movie?”

Finally, people have started putting music to the Ninja Cat video I shared last week. This is the best one I’ve seen.

Where has the House of Reps’ website gone?

Update 2–> nope, gone again. Hrm…

Update–>it’s back (sort of). Yay?

What has happened to the US House of Representatives‘ website? It seems to have gone dark.

Am I the only one who can’t access it?

I recently spotted this adorable lace-up sheep from Plan Toys. I am going to ask Santa to stuff it in my stocking.

I wish I had more time to do a thoughtful blog post about this article from Scientific American. But I don’t, so I’ll send you over there to read the article (it has to do with the mind-body problem as discussed last week and is a clue to my own opinion about the “solution”) and invite you to leave your thoughts about it here in the comments.

Have a great weekend, ya’ll! I hope to have some knitting content for you next week, including WIPs and a series of videos!
