Some brief notes:

* Behind on my novel - at about 6400 words. Don't have the current file with me. I'll post wordcount/excerpt tonight.

* Jeopardy audition: VICTORY. I passed the test, did well in the mock show, and am now in their files for the next year. Passing the test was the only prerequisite for being in their files, but the likelihood of my getting called up is dependent on my performance in the mock game. I spoke clearly, got answers right, never buzzed in before the clue finished, and had some interesting things to say in my bio. I'm confident.

* Tonight is National Drunken Writing Night, or NaDruWriNi. I plan to observe with another NaNo-ing friend of mine. Luckily, she lives nearby, so we won't have to manage transportation while wasted.

* I need to clean this place up. Sigh. After I eat.

Congrats on the audition, man. By "did well in the mock show," do you mean you had the highest score?

Well, we weren't keeping score, but all the questions that I buzzed in for and was asked to answer, I got right. So that's good. But what I mean is that I spoke clearly, never buzzed in too early, and had interesting things to say for the "random bits about yourself" segment.

Thanks! I'm highly excited. Yesterday, walking out of the audition, I was just laughing out loud in the middle of the sidewalk...

Yay for your audition! And Yay for drunken Nano. I'm a little ahead of the "where you need to be" total, and I'm really, really exhausted. I'm declaring it officially my birthday (Central Standard Time) and am taking the rest of the night off.
Until tomorrow, when I frantically write four thousand words. Oy.

Happy Birthday!

I still intend to follow through with the plan of watching a few eps of Arrested Development in your honor.

Drunken NaNo was a success, as I have just posted.

Enjoy your special day! Sounds like you'll have a blast.

Thanks! I'm hoping I'll get someone with a DVR/computer hook up to get the episodes on AVI.

It's not certain I'll be on, but I think it likely...
