NaNo Update: Day 3!

Remember when I said I wasn't going to update every day? Well, I think I might, only I won't update if I don't write anything. So if I don't post, you should yell at me because it means I didn't write anything and I should write something every day because if I don't then IT'S ALL OVER. Hee. Probably. I don't know. I'm not sure what I'm talking about.

Today was a good day, writing-wise. It has not been a good day, so far, work-wise, because I kinda sorta almost got run over by the bus I was thrown under and it hurt my feelings. Ha, JK, I don't have feelings. What was I talking about? Oh yeah, writing.

So it was one of those days where writing was easy, you know? YOU know. I don't mean that what I was writing was exceptional in any way, but the words just came easily, like I suddenly realized that HOLY SHIT, I CAN MAKE UP WHATEVER I WANT. I mean, maybe that should be obvious, but sometimes it doesn't seem like it is. I don't think I'm making any sense, so let's move on.

Word Goal for the Day: 1667
Words Written Today: 2276
Total Written So Far: 6703

(Where I need to be: 5001. I will do the math for you and tell you that puts me ahead of the game by 1702 words.)

Remember yesterday when I thought it had just been Thanksgiving and not Halloween and I wanted to eat a bunch of mashed potatoes? Well. Last night, we tried to make baked potatoes but it turned out that the potatoes I had were, um, bad so we couldn't eat them. So then I was all, "BUT I WANT POTATOES, WAAAAAAH," and then I remembered that I'd gotten a free box of roasted garlic mashed potato mix in the mail. Why did I get a free box of roasted garlic mashed potato mix in the mail? Because I sign up for free shit on the internet whenever I see it. Especially if it's something I love so hard, like mashed potatoes. Or free tampons. Those are awesome, too, because have you seen how expensive tampons are? Damn, Gina. I think they should be free, actually, just like my roasted garlic mashed potatoes.

Anyway. So I made roasted garlic mashed potatoes in like three minutes and we ate them and they were glorious. I was skeptical because...um, instant potatoes, you know? But I would eat them again right now, if I wasn't eating my pudding cup, WHICH IS ALSO DELICIOUS.

Jody tried to make dirty mashed potatoes last night for dinner and they were gross. Note to Jody: Stick with plain taters.

Jennie said...

Ooh, what are dirty mashed potatoes? You should tell him to get some mail mashed potatoes because they were yummy.

This post?
Also, theoretically, you're a day ahead in the writing department, so if you didn't write anything one day, it wouldn't be the end of the world, which is nice.

Abigail said...

Tampons SHOULD be free. True story.

Also, there is another AMANDA MAE on the internet? My mind is blown.

Beau said...

You made me hungry talking about Mashed Potatoes and Tampons...actually it was just the potatoes.

Jennie said...

Amanda Mae, that is an excellent point. I'll save my day off for when I really need it.

Abs, SERIOUSLY, who do we talk to about this?

Beau, why are you trying to ruin mashed potatoes for me? Hee.

That whole bit about suddenly realizing that you can just make stuff up makes complete sense to me. Sometimes you just forget that stuff, especially when there's a goal that you're supposed to be meeting. (And by 'you', of course I mean 'I'.)

I love instant mashed potatoes. Maybe it's gross, but I just think Betty Crocker's are awesome. Obviously real ones are the best, but it's shocking what a good replica the boxed ones are now, for about 1% of the work.

You continue to smoke NaNoWriMo-- yay!

Jennie said...

NTE, I know! It was like, I was stressing myself out and then I realized it didn't matter what I wrote because A) no one is reading it but me at this point and B) I can always change it later! Amazing.

mg! I think they were Betty Crocker mashed potatoes! They looked like potatoes before I even put them in the microwave, it was so weird.
