Hi there, g-
Overachiever Gabi: Hello, blogosphere. Gabi is busy right now and for the entire month of November. She will no longer be eating, sleeping, laughing, or updating this blog. This is due to a number of commitments, including wrestling practises 5 times a week and National Novel Writing Month, a questionably responsible and inaccurately named international writing event. But, since she signed up, no sleep for us. I mean, nobody realizes what a contribution I make. I work so hard, and for this?! She only has a B in science class! It's a traves-
Coach Gabi: POSITIVE IMAGERY! YOU MUST USE POSITIVE IMAGERY! YOU WILL CROSS THAT FINISH LINE AND YOU WILL SURVIVE NOVEMBER!
ADHD Gabi : I ran like a mile at fitness practice yesterday morning! Or, like, more than a mile. I can do push-ups now! It's so cool!
Overachiever Gabi: You don't have time for this! We have to plan for NaNoWriMo! WHERE ARE OUR STORYBOARDS!?
Nice Gabi: It's okay, sweetie! At the Toronto NaNo kickoff, tons of people didn't even have plots yet.
ADHD Gabi: They had really good ice cream there.
Scholarly Gabi: And did you see the old typewriter? And the encyclopedias from the 1800s? And the old-fashioned stained glass windows? IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL.
Poetic Gabi: I especially liked being around kindred spirits. It was like all of our souls were bound togther by the common bond of writing.
ADHD Gabi: LIKE TERMITES. They're like, all like MUST SERVE QUEEN. and then they don't really think much else. . .
Girly Gabi: Did you see the cute guy there? We shook hands and everything! His name was --
Honest Gabi: You realize that anyone who frequents the NaNoWriMo forums can easily read this, including members of your region? And it isn't interesting to talk about cute boys who you've exchanged 15 words with on a blog.
Teenage Gabi: We can write about his unattainable smile in our diary, right? And how we're destined to never be together?
Grumpy Gabi: SHUDDUP, I'M HIBERNATING.
Musical Gabi: Can I sing you a lullaby?
ADHD: SING THAT ONE ABOUT THE LADY WHO DIES BECAUSE SHE EATS A HORSE!
Scholarly Gabi: That reminds me of a book I've been reading. . .
Overachiever Gabi: Or a book which you have to plan? GET OFF OF THE INTERNET.
So, at this point the parents of the children I was babysitting finally got home and I realized that there is not much of a point to this post. I'm posting it anyway!
You may have gathered that my life is busy. That explains why I haven't been posting nearly enough.
NaNoWriMo begins in 31 hours, so I'm kind of sort of in panic mode.
I got asked by someone on the clergy of my synagogue to sing a duet with him which is awesomefantasticexcellent! It also cuts into my writing time.
I have had the same song stuck in my head for the last 5 days, so I figured it out on the ukulele.
