I’m trying to get in a distinctive writing mode for the National Novel Writing Month. On November 1, 2005, I plan … Continue reading →

Sleep, Gresham's Madness, & Eva Longoria

Desperate Housewives

I have yet another television series on DVD to add to my collection, Desperate Housewives. That’s one more for the DVD Collection. I know, I shouldn’t have spent the money. But it was just sitting there on the shelf at Wal-Mart, and I just had to buy it. That’s $50 … Continue reading →

4 Full Pages & A Bible Thumper

I sit here, well past my bedtime and wonder if I should finish off my 5-6 page paper, the one that now stands at a full 4 pages, tonight or wait until I’m a little fresher, by way of a few hours of sleep, tomorrow. I’ll probably wait until tomorrow … Continue reading →
