* I am leaving in two hours for Houston, to present at the National Conference for the Social Studies. I am a little bit nervous about my presentation, and more than a little bit excited about the fact that the keynote speaker is Howard Zinn! I'm also hoping to catch the Prop 8 protest at City Hall tomorrow at noon. Maybe I'll see you there?
* I finally wrote a sex scene for my NaNoWriMo novel. It was pretty tame, to be honest. I have decided to write my novel out of chronological order, with sections that jump around the span of 12 years. I am pretty sure this will 1. create suspense and a properly "experimental" and "artsy" style of story telling, 2. bring me safely to the realm of 50,000 words by November 30th and 3. convince everyone that I only write while imbibing copious amounts of beer and wine. These three things are all true, to some degree.
* That's all I have time for! Gotta jet, eat a bowl of tomato basil soup, and hit the road! <3!
