On Track!

If you take 50,000 words and divide it by 30 days, it comes out to just under 1667 words per day. That would mean that today, the 17th, I should have at least 28,334 total words written to be on track with my NaNoWriMo novel.

I hit 29,007!! Yay!

So, if you were going to get back at a cheating fiance, what would you do? Send any and all suggestions now, since Liv is over her surprise and is now into revenge mode. Get your own thrill vicariously... nothing too violent or illegal, please. I really don't want to have my heroine taken away in handcuffs (unless it's by

On a side note, I got my hair cut on Tuesday. I *had* long hair, but chopped off about six inches of it AND now have bangs, where I didn't before. Consider that, on top of the cut, I have very curly hair that has a tendency to shrink up, and I think that the difference is quite noticeable.

My husband never said a word.

Today, I colored it. Well, sort of. I have dark hair that had a LOT of gray in it, so -- since I'm only 38 and not ready to look 65 -- I grabbed a box of what is essentially my hair color: Medium reddish brown. Yay! No more gray.

Betcha hubby doesn't say a word.

Are your significant others this obtuse? Anyone, anyone?

Congratulations on the new 'do! When it comes to obtuseness, I'm afraid I win the world record for that one. My hubby took me to the coast for my birthday last year. I was putting on my makeup and he called out, from the other room, "When you come out, will you bring me a cup of coffee?" I thought it was a bit strange, 'cause normally he doesn't ask for things like that, but I walked out and poured him a cup. When I took it over to him, he just looked at me. "I didn't want a cup of coffee!" he said. "Huh?" I asked (certain that one or the other of us are going nuts). He took the coffee from me, set it down, and led me back to the coffee maker. Sitting ON TOP of the coffee maker was a beautifully wrapped jewelry box. Talk about obtuse!!!! Can anyone beat that???

Getting even with cheaters: (a)getting his toothbrush and scrubbing the inside of the toilet bowl with it and putting it back

(b) dumping out his favorite cologne/aftershave and replacing it with pee

(c) I don't remember what his job is, but order him a magazine subscription to a very racy or explicit gay magazine and have it sent to his work address. The gift that keeps on giving, 'cause his name will be on a LOT of mailing lists (evil grin)

(d) hire a male stripper to go to his office and do his thing :-)

(e)put a detailed gay ad in a local paper with his contact information

(f) have someone call his work claiming he/she is a detective checking on the status of a person working there that is on the sex offenders list and ask if their job involves working with children in ANY way.

Have fun!

ps... just a disclaimer... I've never ACTUALLY done any of these but I've heard of all of them happening (innocent smile)
