Randomosity on Fridays: It's August!

I'm back from Las Vegas and mostly recovered, though still in dire need of more sleep. What else is new? How have all you fine folks been?

Short and sweet 5:

1. I'm starting to understand what it feels like to be one of my characters or more specifically, to work for her. She runs what is essentially an accounting firm crossed with an archive. I have so many piles of papers on my desk that my elbows are knocking into them, and I'm starting to feel overwhelmed. For Solaris, at least she's the boss. I'm just a grunt on the ground. BOO PAPERWORK!!!

2. In Las Vegas, I learned that you should not drink brandy as a shot. Mostly because it is disgusting and burns and will turn you beet red down to your toes (if you get the Glow at all). That was one Shot of Regret. So. Much. Regret.

3. In Las Vegas, I probably danced to this song.



Oh wait, or was it to that other song or that other one by...? (Another funny project from Wong Fu Productions, KevJumba and David Choi)

4. It's only August, but I'm already thinking about November and NaNoWriMo. That is a little scary. Is it really so soon? I am in desperate need of a writing schedule, a study schedule (standardized tests are still the bane of my existence), and a sleep schedule. ARGH.

5. Mustache me! Check out our giveaway in the post below, or you know, you can just click my link.

C'mon, you know you want free stuff and book swag bookmarks! Besides, we might even sweeten the deal with a specially mixed 'Stachetastic Giveaway playlist CD for all your inspirational (or just road tripping) needs! Ready to get 'stached?

Also, the sister doesn't really speak in a Muppet voice... At least, not all the time.

FINALLY, (this isn't really a #6), I know I was being a total tease about this random idea the sister and I had about improving your health/fitness with reading, and I know I said I was going to tell you about it this week. I'm sorry, but I'm not.

We're trying to flesh this ridiculous idea out and will hopefully have an EPIC post or two for you next week on the topic. Oh, and I'm going to attempt to blaze through The Hunger Games and Catching Fire this weekend, so that we can truly make our workout plan truly Hunger Games worthy.

Oh and I might be giving pretty writerly things away. And maybe more. You'll have to tune in next week to find out! Tell me your best staying-in-shape-sort-of routines! Happy weekend!

Yes, #2, I agree a lot.

I am so jealous you went to Vegas! Ahh, when I'm 21, maybe. I went once when I was younger with my family, and it was kind of like, what is the point of going if you can't drink/gamble? (I'm sorry, that statement made me sound like an alcoholic failure.)

I sooo love Vegas! sounds like a blast!

Lydia- Heeh, well, most of it stays.

Nicole- November rolls around and I get struck by the crazies!

Danyelle- Thanks! My sister is amused that you actually LIKE the muppet voice since I'm always telling her to stop it. Haha.

Xixi-It's true. Vegas not so fun if you're not of age or rich enough to reap the rewards of high-end shopping.

Christina- :D It was! Thanks!
