NaNo Day 7

I'm not dead, but I'm not going as quickly as I'd like.

10,608 words. And no, not the same words repeated over and over and over (although that gets tempting).

I just read through two or so days of my f-list... how is it anyone can keep up with LiveJournal AND STILL manage to write anything?

I've been having a killer sinus attack the last few days -- only stuffy overnight (naturally), but just vaguely headachey with bleary eyes during the days.

The JC Penney's outlet at Arizona Mills is closing, so I took advantage of the sales and got myself some sweaters (goodness knows I NEED more of those), some nice slacks, and the little crock pot I wanted ("little" being relative -- it's actually a normal sized 4-quart one, but that makes it look like the tiny kid brother to my giant Kitchenaid one). I don't know if I'll be able to go back, although I'm tempted to try again in a few weeks when the 30% off goes to 50% off.

I cannot believe that Bob Newhart never won an Emmy until his guest appearance on The Big Bang Theory.

I finally signed onto my older brother's Ancestry.com site (he gave me his sign on information so I could look at some pictures), and found SOMEONE not only has my dad in their tree, but the picture they have posted is ONE OF MINE. I don't even know who this person is, but that picture is one of Mom's favorites (and I had always been under the assumption that she took it)... and wow, are there a lot of connections in there. How many kids did my father have, anyway???

Back to work.

I'm seriously thinking about downloading a timer program to limit my time on the Net.

I can't even FIND my father on Ancestry.com. I guess your dad was a busy fella. ;-)

I hate falling behind, though.

I had a hard time finding any of Dad's family at first -- Mom's was easy, they're all over the place, but until I found some maiden names, I wasn't able to find much of anything.

yay for getting deals on stuff but boo to sinus infections

glad you're getting some writing done.

I just said that to mom about Bob Newhart (in a way it's almost insulting that minor role is the only thing he's every been awarded for)

wow, that is a complicated family tree

Hopefully it's NOT an infection! Just annoying allergies.

It seems to happen, though, to some venerable working actors. After all, John Wayne didn't win an Oscar until "True Grit" -- VERY late in his career (and while iconic, not his best acting role). I know there are other examples. But it boggled my mind that he NEVER won for either "The Bob Newhart Show" or "Newhart." Both were on the air forever and both were critically acclaimed.

Tell me about it!

I know. Jack Palance same thing but yeah those shows were long running and loved. It did shock me.
