The Starting (cow) Bell

The little ghouls and goblins seem to have gone to bed now. A lean year for us with only 17 kids coming to the door. And we live in the suburbs. It wasn't a bad night out, relatively speaking. The temperature was about 8C (that would be about 46F for my American friends) and no rain. Just a bit of wind. Perhaps the H1N1 business has scared off a few tonight? That's a whole other story with the supply here having run out today...




Anyhow, it's now midnight and time for the NaNoWriMo to begin for this year. I'm too tired to be pumped. I think I will start this with a whimper and go to bed now and get up early for the attack. I notice, though, that my computer clock says that it's 11pm, so has it really started yet? I am ringing the starters bell...cow bell, that is. You all know what that means. Click here for what I think is one of SNL's funniest skits. Welcome to all Saint's Day and happy NaNo to all participating.

Can there ever be too much cowbell? I think not.

Kat said...

Lol. I know the feeling, Alan. Love the photo, by the way, lol. The yellow hat is too cute!

;)

I love that skit. Anything with Walken is brilliant. Happy NaNo-ing. :-)

Cate Gardner said...

Good luck, good luck, good luck.

Laura Eno said...

Yay and go us!

Alan W. Davidson said...

Natalie-I think not, either...

Kat-Thanks, I figured that I'd go with either the yellow ducky hat or the fez for halloween ;)

Becca-I always love it when Walken appears on SNL. I almost peed myself laughing when he did that Colonel Lingus skit a few years back.

Cate-Three thank yous to you!

Laura-I agree, Yay us! Good luck to you (but then again, you're no stranger to writing novel-length stuff...)

Rawr! Cowbell!

NaNo awaits. Go get 'em.

katey said...

Hell yeah, more cowbell!

Good luck, and have fun. I love Nano, and wish I could do it this year. Alas, I have to do boring things like edit instead. Waaah!

Good luck! I hope your wordcount is climbing a lot faster than mine is!

Alan W. Davidson said...

Aaron-Thank you, sir!

Katey-Thanks for the luck. Hey, edits are important as well...

KC-As you noted on your blog, you'll come up with something more to your liking. It's gotta be fun or why do it eh?
