Anyone else excited for this Saturday?!?

Anyone else surprised by how little disruption Jaysen's been this year!?!

I'm trying to BEHAVE!!! I can still be a pest if you'd like.

I'm actually nervous. Not sure why. I think the recent changes in my day to day may be contributing. That said, BRING IT!

Rum acquisition is happening today.

What's the plot this year?

As a professional, you, are your one and only asset. Without integrity you are worthless, but with it, you are priceless.

I am, actually — more than a little.

I've bought an "infinite monkeys" t-shirt to wear and Scrivener is warmed up and ready.

It's a weird feeling knowing that in a few days I'll be introduced to a set of characters and be working with a team of strangers to bring those characters to life and through some ordeal. What a fun thing to able to do!

I'm beaming gratitude in your general direction already, pigfender.

Scrivener is definitely worth checking out if you do go dualOS or get a new computer at some point... I wouldn't plan a multiple version global collaborative writing event to write a Novel in a Day with anything else! ;)

Thanks for having me!

Ooh! Cool! I'll be wearing mine on the day too! We're T-shirt buddies!

Yeah, I can't wait to see how y'all grow and develop them, and just how badly you're all prepared to mistreat them!

Should that happen to you, while you will feel doomed, I will be happy to find myself "not alone" drifting aimlessly on a wordless sea while a plot floats above me uncaught and out of reach, my feeble mental hardware unable to grasp and wrestle it into a condition recognizable by anyone. Such is the danger of NiaD. Beware to the one that enters unaware.

But I'm sure I will be alone. Again. At least Vic-k will come visit me. Even if it is only to see how fresh the salt and lemon juice are... :wink:
