Big excitement found here

I have new and exciting things to report. No, none of them involve me raffling off a free car. Even better! I'm participating in NaBloPoMo! I also saved a bundle on my car insurance.


NaBloPoMo goes on in November. It's like a pact to post on your blog every day for the whole month. I read a couple blogs that did it last year. It seemed kind of challenging and fun so this year I signed up right away. I was like #94 to sign up or something ridiculous. Now November is kind of looming in front of me like an endless sea of blank pages waiting to be filled. I think some people brainstorm ideas ahead of time to avoid that problem. Some people even have a theme or something. Whatever. They need to learn to procrasinate better. Like me. I'll be flying by the seat of my pants all month long. It's gonna be killer. Prepare to feel awesome each and every time you visit.



And please don't lose any more sleep worrying about my DVR. It's fixed. Crisis averted. Verizon fooled us into thinking they had fixed the problem Thursday night but they are big, fat, hairy liars. Saturday night the onscreen menu froze up and my husband and I ended up laying in bed staring at the blank television screen while we sat on hold. We live an exciting life. We finally got some dude on the phone and he said they'd send someone out to fix it. My husband, never at a loss for words, asked if they could send someone out that night. The tech guy enjoyed that. They came bright and early the next morning though. So I guess Verizon's not all bad. I mean, I still hate them as much as ever but I guess there won't be any need to burn down their headquarters or anything.

Good luck! I'll stop by to see what you write everyday as extra incentive if it helps.

Why yes that does give me extra incentive! I'll do my best! If all else fails I figure I'll post embarrassing photos of my husband.

I know you can hear me... said...

Everyone seems to be talking about it...but I'm afraid if I try to do the daily posts and fail that the rest of you cool kids will throw spit balls at me and make me eat lunch by myself...

We'll see though - you're making it sound do-able...

a happier girl said...

I promise not to shoot spit wads at you. I will however gleek on you when I walk away from the water fountain. And it's totally doable. That's not to say everything will be riveting reading. But it's doable. If I can do it anyone can.

Yes, pick a day of the week to embarass your husband & call it "(Mr...) day of shame. Good luck with this.

Anne said...

I signed up and then realized that I have to post Saturday & Sunday...it's a challenge, but I will try it. Thanks for the link.

a happier girl said...

You can do it! Challenging is the key word. For example, I'm not entirely certain how I'll be posting from Sea World yet. But who knows. And Moderately Insane Mondays might be an appropriate feature for photos of my moderately insane husband. He'll be so excited.

Wow - You're a brave woman... I'm with 'I know you can hear me'. I think I'll just sit with my tray in the corner and watch the cool kids :}

Oooh. And about your DVR... You did hear about this 75-year-old lady that took a hammer to the Comcast office, didn't you?

a happier girl said...

Oh my word I feel for that woman. I had not heard about her and her hammer. I feel that woman's pain and frustration! I've had Comcast cable. They suck. They came to install our cable and left in the middle just like she said they did to her!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
