the journey to self enlightenment through television

I just wanted to do a quick update today just to go through all the things that have happened so far this week.  And let me tell you, gentle readers, it’s been a crazy one.

For starters, we have a new President-elect.  I can’t explain how pleased I am at the turnout of this year’s election, and how excited I am to have been a part of such a historical event.  Perhaps we’ll see some change.  But either way, this is a good thing for our country.

Michael Crichton passed away yesterday because of Cancer.  He was 66.  He will be missed.  He was the famed creator of ER and Jurassic Park, among other things.

You may have noticed there’s a sticky post at the top of this blog.  It is to celebrate November being “National Novel Writing Month.”  This is my first time doing something like this, and it’s pretty exhiliharating.  So, you’ll be noticing random posts that don’t belong within the theme of this blog.  I do recommend taking a look through those posts in order by the date they were posted.  I’m trying to keep things as chronologically in step as I can.  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

It is no secret that I’ve been working on a novel for awhile now… this is something outside of that.  A completely different story, mostly because I only have 30 days (well, 24 now) to do it in, so it’s not about the editing… it’s just about the writing, which is very freeing.

So I urge you all to check out the official website for NaNoWriMo and help support literary abandon!

I’ve been feeling a tad restless lately, mostly with the look of my blog.  So I’ve gone and changed it… again.

Don’t be scared.  It probably won’t happen again for awhile.  But at the moment, I am doing some tweaking, hoping that this will satisfy me for the moment.

I hope I like the finished product.

Perhaps the time is coming where I’ll get over the constant need to change things around.  I have played around with the CATEGORIES section far too much, and now I’m trying to restore it.  In the meantime, please feel free to use  the search box at the top to find something you might be interested in.

Wish me luck!

Hello again, gentle readers.  I’ve been doing a bit of housecleaning here, so please bear with me as I go into “maintenance mode.”  Unfortunately, all of my sidebar widgets have disappeared, which I can’t seem to get back, even if I change the theme.  Hopefully, this will be taken care of in the next few days.

In the meantime, I will be trying everything I can to get this problem worked out on my own.

Also, I’ll be sitting here being the eternal pessimistic optimist while watch the Red Sox in Colorado, being beaten mercilessly by the Rockies.  (Yes, I do realize that if the Rockies don’t win that Boston will be a-buzz with excitement and I may have to retract my statement.  I’m willing to live with that.)
