Heading out for my first real vacation since New York. This one will be decidedly more relaxing. Headed out on my first cruise!

I feel pretty great knowing that my dog is in good hands at the vet and that I have someone staying at my place to take care of the cat.

How to let your friends know you are not participating in NaNoWriMo

I have so many things that I would like to focus on, and I am clearly no writer, so I will not be participating in NaNoWriMo. This sucks because I may have sparked the idea accidentally.

Here are some ways you can tell your friends the bad news
a) Passive aggressive blog post (is there any other kind?)
b) Letter
c) Email (oh wait, you did that)
d) Singing Telegram
e) Carrier Pigeon (pigeon is like, really hard to spell, you guys, you can see why I am not participating)
