mea culpa

1. It's the following Thursday. Enough said. I will get the internet back soon and then all will be well.

2. That having been said, today is another big day: the beginning of November. The kickoff of NaNoWriMo. I'll let you know how it goes; so far my day has been consumed with cleaning up the house and coming in to the office to do a few internet things and pick up my paycheck.

3. My Halloween was a fairly quiet one. Most people celebrated on Saturday; I went out to Anne's house with Katrina and we watched Grindhouse, the lated Tarantino/Rodriguez project. Very silly and gorey in that classic zombie movie way, and a good night. I also got to meet Anne's son, who is about eighteen months old and has a terrific grin.
Real Halloween, my half-birthday, we rented some horror films and Megan stopped in after work to carve pumpkins and eat junk food. Ah, traditional harvest festivals.

4. I'm feeling terse; filling out student loan forms and paperwork all day makes me tight with words and sort of anxious. I'll have to find a way to get a little more limber before starting my Novel.

5. In Saskatchewan:

A key NDP election promise is to reduce tuition by $1,000, with the schools again to be backfilled the money.
The Saskatchewan Party, meanwhile, has promised to give tuition rebates totalling up to $20,000 over seven years for students who stay in Saskatchewan.
The Liberals propose a student housing credit worth $500 per year per student. They also want to change the student loan system so students won't be disqualified from loans based on their parents' income.

I suppose someone has figured out that students are impressionable and, as impulsive and reckless and destructive to society as they are, do in fact have the vote.

Hurray for Nov 1, and daily blogging. I am pretty excited, cause I have really missed you this past week...
