I suddenly really hate the word 'excellent'. I am currently on the phone with my cell provider and the man keeps looking at my account going, 'excellent, that's excellent'. It's not excellent. My account won't work. And I can't check on the shipping of the phone that ordered. Have I mentioned that I've been without a working for phone for almost a month now? I don't like it. However, if what the man says is the truth, my phone should be here today. I guess we'll just see about that. :/

I just realized that, while I am quite a nerd in my own world, I have a long way to go before I reach true nerdome. Check out this post and the comments on Dan Wells' blog. Dan is one of my favorite authors, someone I might like to write like some day, but this entire conversation went completely over my head. The funny thing is that I wish I understood it. I like military tactics and the idea of this kind of gaming is actually quite interesting to me (my dad's military influence coming out), but I've never had anyone around who could teach me about it. But who knows? Maybe one day, right?

Thank you to Debbie for introducing me to Ludo. I love them! Can't get enough of 'Broken Bride'.
Not much writing happening in my life. Why is it that I use this blog as a way to air my frustrations so much? Oh well. Back to life. :)
Oh! Things I'm looking forward to:
Spring break in which Donna comes to visit and we take a road trip to Sacramento to crash Dan Wells' book signing. Hooray!
The day when my first book is done and I can move on to the next.
Okay, now back to life. :)

I'm taking two minutes out of my very busy day to present evidence that our government is made up of a bunch of idiots.
Exhibit A: New York Times Article
Wouldn't it make more sense for everyone involved to just print on the package the nutritional information for the entire package of food first. Then, underneath that, break it down into a serving size? That way, if you decide to down an entire bag of chips, you can see exactly how many thousands of calories you just ate. No confusion. I think it's funny, by the way, that the FDA is concerned about implementing larger portion sizes because "they think it might tell people that the government is saying they can eat more". Is it just me or is that a ridiculous argument?

Heading to San Francisco today.
And, in other news, I'm reading Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. It's been awhile since I've read anything so classically fantasy and I'm liking it a lot. His magic system is intriguing and his world is just craving a revolution that should be fun getting to. You just gotta hate those nobles!

I took my two youngest kids and the dogs for a walk in the foothills across town from my house. Quite delightful! There is no end to how entertaining the dogs are to me. They barrel through the snow, race down the trail and bound happily back to me as if they've just accomplished the most amazing feats. Love them!
The kids are entertaining, but they take a lot more work......there's a lot more falling and not enough bounding. But they still managed to have some fun. :)
