Somehow...

I managed it. 50,102 words.

Whew.

I can't even let my brain rest, since I have to actually try and focus on my writer's critiques, which I am very behind on. Still coughing. *hack, hack*

Throat's hurting a little this afternoon. Tired, draggy, made it through a busy day at work. Two of our morning people will be on vacation for the next two weeks. Whee.

I had remembered, vaguely, I thought to wax a little poetic about sights I saw outside of the airplane window while flying back home, such as the horrible brown spots all over Florida (they aren't kidding about the drought there -- when you're on the ground, it doesn't look nearly as bad as it does in the air), or the way I thought San Antonio was all these empty blank spots before I noticed little sparkles in the dark squares and realized I was seeing populated neighborhoods -- almost completely hidden by TREES. I need to actually SEE San Antonio before I write about it again, methinks.

According to the scale this morning, I actually LOST WEIGHT over the Thanksgiving weekend. There is something to be said for being sick, I guess.

Yay!!! Congrats on both winning at NaNoWriMo AND at losing weight! I managed to simply not gain weight (which really was better than I expected).

As I said, being sick had to be good for SOMETHING! *grin*

Thanks!

I couldn't believe how dry and brown it looked as the plane was going up. With that much dry vegetation, I can understand the flames...

it's supposed to burn. The populace purposely prevents control burns being done (My college supervised them) because 'it was bad for the elderly' but then when a natural fire kicks up it burns too hot and too high destroying everything

Well, yes, same in Arizona -- they've come around to realizing that controlled burns are good; however, conditions have been so dry that they can very quickly get out of control.

nods. CA is another fire driven system which is why it gets hit so harda
