Frozen Grapefruit and Other Surprising Things

Yes, my grapefruit was frozen yesterday morning. That's what I get for putting it in the fridge. It was much less messy than usual, however, so the next grapefruit went in there too. Frozen grapefruit and squishy popsicles.... Our fridge just can't seem to make up its mind. (And Mom, they are very good, by the way.)

NaNoWriMo, as I'm sure you all know, just by way of connection to me, is just around the corner. Six days, in fact! Yes, I'm counting. I'll be home on the first day of NaNo, so I'm warning you in advance. Don't expect much out of me on Sunday. If I can get a headstart, well, I'll take it. I figure, with the Saturday write-ins, and my own BW write-ins on Tuesday nights, I'll be able to get five hours a week of writing. If I can manage 1,000 words an hour, that's 20k right there. Only 10,000 more to stick into other cracks and crannies over the rest of the month. Doesn't sound half bad that way, huh?

NaNo is on the mind. I have to do a ten minute presentation in German class, and yes, in German, on any topic of my choice. Guess. Yup, National Novel Writing Month. I had way to much fun playing with Power Point. (Imagine: "Ooh, colors!")

I am also going to make a posterboard for everybody's wordcounts. With stickers! Everybody loves stickers. My project tomorrow. In between homework, that is.

I got an 86% on my German midterms (surprising things, I said, didn't I?), which made me quite glad, though it may have dropped my grade down to a B+. I do what I can. :)

Christine gave me stickers. Hehe.

I've been playing DragonFable again recently. It's very addictive. I think I be in luv. It will make a great procrastination tool for NaNoWriMo. Especially with WiFi everywhere!

Off again. I shall try to post soon.
Love, Ashley

I played some RS over the weekend. lol I guess reverting to things you once played is a common thing to procrastinate. I think school fits in the cracks of my life. I had 2 tests yesterday one in math and one in speech. Today, I have an essay due. Tomorrow I have a demo speech due that I have not prepared at all yet. I don't even know what I'm demonstrating. Gotta love college.

I love that quote but you miss cited it. The quote is missing the year published and in what it was published. I know who gives a darn as long as you cited the author? I mean if you cite the author that should be enough to say "hey, I didn't write this."
