fifteen for friday 08/27/10

…the return. Remember these are random thoughts, k?

1. You think your commute is bad? Feel better? Glad I could help.

2. Looking over old drafts can be disheartening. See the purple marker? It’s purple for a reason.

old manu 0013. Purple prose –noun

writing that calls attention to itself because of its obvious use of certain effects, as exaggerated sentiment or pathos, esp. in an attempt to enlist or manipulate the reader’s sympathies. (dictionary.com)200px-WoT02_TheGreatHunt

4. So I’m reading The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan right now. It’s the second book in The Wheel of Time series. It’s a fantasy book. Yeah, I lost like 15 cool points just writing that. I think I may be getting dangerously close to negative cool territory.
6. (WARNING: shameless plug) Into android applications (the phones not the robots)? Want to know more? Check out this site.
elf defense 0037. You never know where or when you may come in contact with a rogue elf. It’s best to be prepared.
8. I wonder if they have real elves to practice on?
9. Are children the only ones who take this class? It doesn’t seem fair to have a full grown human fighting against a little elf.

10. I wonder how Santa feels about this?
11. OMK, every time! I get to this point and I just wonder…do I seriously not have 15 random thoughts in my head?
12. Is it okay to have 90 unopened email in my inbox? Looking for validation.
13. There should be a term for the great fatigue felt in the first week or two of school. Back-to-school lag? Sudden routine syndrome? That one sounds good!
14. I once had a guest blogger on here, Jenny Martin, librarian. Well, guess what? She got herself an agent! Way to go Jenny!
15. I think I might look into this wattpad thing. Not sure about it yet, though.
See ya next week!
