nano '12

Really? Am I nuts? Yes, I'm doing NaNoWriMo again this year. I try to tell myself that I won't aim for 50,000 words or that I don't care very much, but I know how competitive I am. I was originally going to just write every day, not actually shoot for a novel, but that wouldn't have ended well, and an idea happened to hit me, so I'm gonna run with it.

The gist is souls and their relationships to those that control them. If that is vague enough, then I have succeeded.

Anyway, I'm going to do that, while trying to get healthy and eat better and sleep more and complete my Jr year of school. HAHA! I have my inspiration, now only for a plot and some characters... Oh well, a bunch of you bloggers know how it is. I would apologize for my future absence from the blog, but I should probably start with apologizing for my past absence! I may or may not be around. Heck, maybe I'll be posting every day in order to procrastinate! It wouldn't be the first time.

If you feel led to send me encouraging messeges and notes this month, I wouldn't be offended.

Well, the Guilt Monkey is telling me to run! tah tah! ~billyBobjoe

PS My whole writing group promised to put one character named Billy Bob Joe in each of their novels! So fun!

minimalist posters (part 4)

If the previous set of posters were "girlie", I guess these would be "boyish", but no boy or action flick lover would be happy with that title! I just like things to match and be all lined up. Unofficially, these are the action flicks and one all-around beloved comedy.

Like the colors. All the characters, but still retains that simplicity.

This was a good movie and I like what they did with the poster.

I watched this opening night at a party. It was a little more violent and gory than I was used to, but Han Solo and James Bond! Sooooo....

I can't waaaiit!

So hilarious! I've heard this quoted my whole life.

shells and tropics

Sometimes I get so drained that I feel like just a shell. At least I'm supposed to be eating a ton, so I'm not guilty about the giant snack and Tropical Smoothie Cafe...

Things get so often described as being like the "eye of the storm", but I'm here telling you that I'm at the stormiest part, but where you can see the sun peeking out in the distance. I just have to press through to that point. I keep realizing that it will get worse, then it will get better. I'm not grumbling, just thinking and reminding myself.

It's like I know what to do, just won't bring myself to do it. It's dumb.

Well, enough of that. This is my 75th post! *rejoicing*

listening: Oh! Darling by: The Beatles

reading: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by: Stevenson. This is a re-read for school.

minimalist posters (part 3)

Part 3 consists of "girlie" movies. Two of (500) Days of Summer, which I have not see, but want to, because it has Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and two Audrey Hepburn movies. Roman Holiday is the only one of these that I have seen. The color scheme is amazing and unintentional. Almost everything in 500DoS is blue, in order to highlight Zooey Deschanel's eyes, the director said.

*sigh* So darn cute.

Okaaayy, I'll do a real post next! I think I have 7 parts in all...
