11/30/2022 NaNoWriMo, BANSHEE BEACH: 636/50013. [Victory!]

I consider this a victory, given that I lost pretty much a week to Covid. Well, four or five days. If I had managed to still have those, I probably would have hit 60K. 50K is supposed to be the target number anyway.

Yeah, I’m still not at 100% yet.

It’s not exactly the Covid; it’s the stress related to the Covid. The entire household needs to recharge its batteries after the week we’ve had. My wife in particular got stuck doing everything at once on the holiday itself, then got sick anyway.

In the Mail: Little Earthquakes: The Graphic Album.

Tori Amos: Little Earthquakes (The Graphic Album) is actually not going to be commercially available for another week, but I was happy to order an early copy directly from the publisher. Basically, what they did was commission 24 short comics, each based on the songs on Little Earthquakes and the B-sides to their individual singles.

Movie of the Week: BULLET TRAIN.

I tried to go see BULLET TRAIN in theaters. I had it all set up: I was gonna go hang out with my sister-in-law and her now-fiance, we’d grab a beer beforehand, maybe get some wings. It was totally going to be a thing. Instead, my car failed me for no particular reason and that was the first time it got towed this year. Oh, well. It’s on sale today.
