Blue blue blue . . . and a bit of red

And lo there was much clapping and cheering, although Georgia is a blight of red in the swath of post-election-day blueness. Still, add no more Rumsfeld as secretary of defense to the pot, and it’s definitely time to break out the confetti!

To celebrate, actually, more like to see if it was better than the ever-increasing amount of caffeine I’ve been slamming, I took an extra 10mg of Adderall today and skipped my morning coffee. The higher dose ye verily gave me a kick–caught up on some outstanding Tangent work and cranked out 1700 new words on the WiP–but now I’ve got a caffeine withdrawal headache. Agh.

I get Veteran’s Day off from work (!) this Friday. Think I’ll do some cold turkey/intensive caffeine weaning this long, holiday weekend. Also, woohoo, I get Veteran’s Day off!

New Words:
- 1700 on “Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast.” I think my original estimate of 5K might’ve been somewhat . . . low. Trying now to keep this under novelette-sized, but it looks to be tight. Another hard-to-sell-length story. Sigh.

What’s with the novelettes, musie? Gimme short or gimme a novel, but this novelette thing we’ve been doing blows goats.

    I do novelettes most of the time :)
    And I’m chiming in late, but I think it has a fabulous title. Should sell just from that *g*

    I prefer my politicians purple, but the Libertarians sucked ass for the most part this year. (And yes, I know they were yellow on the board) :)

    Good luck escaping the caffeine. It is a harsh mistress.
