“Here, your turn.” His words pulled me from my daydream back to the game at hand. I look at the wood cup blankly. He shakes it to focus my attention. I can hear something rattling inside. “Take it, girl! Your turn! Let’s see you roll better than me!”
(This post was taken down in a naive thought that things would be worked out. Things didn’t.)
Another view/hit/click generator site has picked me up. Oh joy. As if Alphainventions wasn’t bad enough. Time to add blogsurfer.us to the list of rejected referrers. Talk about pissing in the pool. The forums attached to blogsurfer.us have the same rose-colored filters as AI. Lots of “wow, I got thousands of views, what a great service”, and not a single “how to remove my blog from your rotation”.

My cell phone is dancing harshly on my desk. The vibrations sounding like a worn out drill is stuttering. Just as the initial vibrations cease, I blindly reach over and grab the phone. The first audible chirps are silenced as I press the “answer” button.
“Hello?” It too damn early in the morning. I thought I had my phone on silent.
S’s Rules: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 30 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 30 people to be tagged.

This is the last update for NaNoWriMo 2010. The Fucking End. My daughter is cheering me for having done this. I think she has gotten more out of this than I did, but that may be a symptom of my scrambled neurons. So, I’ll just throw this cropped screenshot here and be done with it.
This here picture is worth 50,528 words. Fuck yea!
Now, I need to go burn incense at the altars of William Strunk Jr. and E. B. White, and there beg forgiveness for my apostasy from The Elements of Style.
Just a few more days, guys. And the NaNoWriMo book will be done and I can return to my original intent of this blog. It’s been a roller coaster 24 days so far. What started out as a flippant and trivial excuse to vomit words and vanities has become a piercing introspective. There is more of me in the character “Alexandra Nerien” than I care to admit.

Some person was googling for “bindrune suk” a few days ago, and came across my “Bindrune: ASK Deconstruction & Observations” post because Google thought “SUK” was a new way to spell “suck”. Since I’m trying to get a handle on making and using bindrunes, why not turn the error into a learning opportunity.
Anyone figure out if AlphaInventions has a working optout? I’d rather not have my stuff in someone else’s frame. The site skews my reader statistics and completely fails the smell test.
