So I'm trying to prepare/psych myself up for NaNoWriMo. I have the official companion book (though I haven't read it yet) and am racking my brain for ideas that I can actually sustain for a month of attempted writing. That means only writing what I know, or at least something based on what I know. I won't have time for research, and if I start out with a crummy plot I'll give up really quickly. All of the below ideas have pros and cons, but I thought I'd get opinions/feedback on which ones are most interesting to people, or seem like good bets.

My mom has generously decided to get me an iPod. So I have to decide what kind to get and how to go about getting it, and that's where I need input from you guys. :) The 20-60 GB pods are out of the question, so it's basically between a nano and a Mini, if I can find one. I'd greatly prefer the Mini. Overstock had some before Christmas, but they seem to be gone now. I'm nervous about the nano, since everything I've read claims that they break easily and scratch immediately when touched. :P

I'm not counting out the non-Apple mp3 players, but I'm concerned about product compatibility with those - I don't want to get stuck with something that will be un-usably obsolete before too long. On the plus side, some of them have FM receivers, which would be very cool.

I created a poll, let's see if it worked: iPod Poll )

Also, can anyone tell me how the heck to burn purchased iTunes songs onto a CD? I'm not even talking about converting them to mp3s - I mean burning them just as they are. I've researched and tried many things, and no matter what I do, it tells me I can't burn the song onto a CD because it's write-protected. This is very, very annoying, seeing as I purchased the music in order to listen to it somewhere other than at my computer at home. Anyone have experience in this area? I'm having the same problem with some .wma files that I foolishly bought from MSN Music.

Thanks!!!

Things I keep forgetting: Happy late birthday to jazzypoetKimma - sorry I missed it! :( And thanks for the nice letter, mandajanieManda. It was really sweet and brightened my day. :)

Hair update: Brilliant Brunette shampoo is working! My hair is noticeably darker than it was last week. Thank you, John Frieda.

The weather here has been fantastic. We had the driest September on record. I'm glad October is here, because it's my second-favorite month. It has a lot of the same qualities as May, which is my favorite month. This got me thinking about months and how I haven't made a poll in a while, so here you go. A short poll )

Okay, back to data checking. :(

Hot weather makes me so sleepy. Or maybe it's the contrast between inside and outside. This time of year, I can actually feel things in my head expanding when I go outside and shrinking when I come back into the 68-degree office. Weird. Also, it's way too early for us to have highs in the mid-to-high 80s. I'm afraid of what July will be like.

This weekend is wide open plans-wise, which is very nice. Will I go to a movie? Finish my Shopaholic books? Have dinner with Helen before she leaves town? The possibilities are endless! Evan has Sunday off, too - yay!

A dove has made a nest in the eaves of my parents' front porch. It's neat. I took some (far away) pictures of her last night- I'll probably post them and other pictures on Monday.

Sorry I'm so boring today. Lately I feel totally uncreative and unable to come up with anything original. I feel like I say the same thing over and over. Here's a poll since Jessica asked for one. )

Happy birthday, Sara! Y feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Kathy's masters thesis is finished! She's turning it in this afternoon. I'm so proud of her, and so glad that she gets to return to the land of the living now. God is faithful!

For today's lunch I went to Wendy's for the Brenda Combo- chicken nuggets, a side salad, and a medium drink. It's a tasty and well-rounded meal for $3.25. I used to go there weekly, but haven't in a long time since I'm trying to save money. When I pulled around, the familiar drive-in lady recognized me and asked where I've been! That was funny and nice.

Have you heard that new song, "Broken" with Seether and Amy Lee? I like it. I really wonder if Evanescence is going to break up now that Ben Moody (the guitarist) is gone. That would be a shame. By the way, I realize that my journal has degenerated to an advertisement for various restaurants, musicians, and media. Sorry. I don't know why I'm especially shallow lately.

I've been wondering about some technical aspects of weddings and receptions, so I think I'll do a poll. Please answer only if you are or have been married, or answer what you plan to do if you're engaged. I'm curious. I'll include a "want to see results" option so everyone can learn. :) Da dum da dum )
