oh em gee i’m freaking out because i don’t want to miss my deadline. i am SUCH a dork. more in a moment.
edited to add: WHEW. i feel so much better now. a mere 15 minutes ago, i was at a hotel about 8 blocks away, chatting with friends, and trying to extract ourselves so i could get back here to meet the NaBloPoMo deadline. my husband and i speed-walked all the way back, hustled through the crazy obstacle course of a lobby, got on an elevator with two other people who wanted to get off on two other floors before ours, and hurried down the hall to get to our room. once here, we had to start up the laptop, let it finish some updates (argh), re-up our internet charges (sigh), and then log in to typepad and go crazy trying to post before midnight. i would imagine i’m not the only participant with a story/entry like this. hee.
