Of course its not any good because it was written last minute, Plus the max words came up on me so fast I had to end it abruptly. Ugh. Oh well, I did it for fun :)

Then I threw together a beef stew in the crock pot for dinner... now I'm hungry so I think I'm gonna make some scrambled eggs, toast and a cup of tea! :mrgreen:
Becks, I want to hire you to cook for me, because I don't have the time to do it myself! Most of my money goes to the WSU cafeteria. :P I don't like that, even though the food is good-ish. If I could, I would totally do one of those Dinner's Ready things.
yeah, I cook dinner for my family during the week and mom takes over on the weekends. :)

Seema, I would love to look at it for you! :D
Thanks. I just sent you an e-mail.

Praying you get out of the dumps soon. School stress will do that to you. Remember to take one day a week to rest and have fun.

Thanks. :) Yes, I had a girls' night the other night with a couple of friends. It was good to just relax and laugh about nothing in particular. Plus, we get the whole week of Thanksgiving off, so that will be good, too.

I got all my pages and pages of symptom discriptions and everything all finished and sent off to SSI today before I left for school, with my support letters from family and my mentor. Got through math class but not doing so well now. Guess I need to drag myself up and find some food. I didn't really eat much today, so I'm sure that doesn't help. Don't think I'll be getting even the 800 more words I need to meet today's NaNo goal, but should be able to catch up at some point.

Ohh I'm jealous, but it's a comfort to know the movies aren't any where near as good as the books. I watched all the older ones on TV this weekend, I was thinking it's been a while since I've read the books maybe I'll read them again. I think I've read them all at least 10 times each!
That's awesome... I don't have them. I need to acquire them and read them again. Because they're awesome. No matter what Rebecky says. I think you need to try again, Rebecky.

I love Harry Potter. I am actually on book #6 re-reading them for the maybe 6th time?? I wish I could go back and read it again for the first time. Though if you are starting out books 1-2 aren't so great but by book 3 it just becomes better and better.

That's it I am through. No longer am I going to tell you to be careful or take care of yourself, like eating regular meals. I give up, it does me no good, you don't listen. :?

I will just keep my mouth shut, and worry myself to death over it. It is simpler that way. :cry:

She will probably force herself to stay up and not only type out the 800 words she needs but another 1000 just to make me worry more. I am starting to think she does it on purpose.... :roll:

He doesn't die in the last book, so why would he die in the movie?

Yup, I do it just to torture you. :razzberry But no, I didn't write a word on my NaNo and I'm going to bed now, a bit earlier than I've been going.

I keep telling you, though, my disease just pretends to kill me--it isn't actually fatal, so all the worrying is for naught.

So, how do the Harry Potter books end? I don't care for them myself, so will never read them, but I'm curious how they end.

Hey, I already got one comment on my challenge story. :) Left a few on some other ones earlier today before I crashed, too.
