We have come to the horrible conclusion that we have no more black tea in the house, so one of us has to face the world today. #BlackFridayBlues
We lost a good one today. Raise a glass and cry Excelsior! There are many ways Stan Lee shaped us with visions of something better. #RIPStanLee
I decided to work on #NaNoWriMo18 in Google Docs so I would have flexibility between three computers, a phone, and a tablet. This year I decided to actually use the outline feature to move through the file easily.
Most of the books I've read actually discourage talking about fasting and normally I wouldn't, but I have had several conversations and so far everyone is supportive. I know the food manufacturers don't like it because it's less money in their pockets. Frankly, I'd rather eat out on the meals I do eat because a) I don't like cooking, and b) I can spend my money locally.
Much to my horror, I have become an evangelist for #IntermittentFasting and I'm not sure I like that role.
#NaNoWriMo2018 continues to be slow. I have at least one character named, resting in the house of [HEALING GOD NAME], having theological discussions with my main character, who is not yet so lucky to have a name.
I'm scrolling through Gizmodo's 100 Web Sites that Shaped the Internet and it noted that Pinterest is one of the few social media platforms without a Nazi problem. Not having comments must help a lot.
Doctor Who S11EP4
I really appreciated the Doctor asking the companions if they were sure they wanted to go along. All the other companions seemed to jump in on a whim: Rose, Martha, Donna. Amy probably wasn't so spontaneous, but Clara and Bill were. This time the Doctor seems to have figured it out that being a companion is not something to jump into lightly.
New Blog Post on the Challenge of Gifts, copied from a scrap of paper I was able to read despite having written it in my own hand ?-years ago. https://joshuarenglish.com/blog/2018/10/28/uncle-josh-on-the-challenges-of-gifts/
Yesterday I offered to let a co-worker leave some sweet treats for her team near my desk because one of her teammates had drama over being too close to sugar. I was #fasting for the day and I've lost the uncontrollable urge for sugar since doing a #Whole30, so I said leave it thee because it wouldn't bother me.
Today, however, I am not fasting and there's leftover pizza.
Open call for #NaNoWriMo. I'm working on a fantasy this year.
