42% done!

And only three days to go!

I'm trying to live up to my NaNo name...

Anyway, I am also trying not to give up this year, as I have tried and failed on two previous attempts to 'win' by getting the 50k done in thirty what if I have to pull a couple of long-nighters... I can do this! Yeah! Right! I am trying to bribe myself with the promise of a new haircut (longish bangs and long layers to enable the 'fro factor to take hold and enable me to spend even less time on my hair) and a new t-shirt- lookie here!

I love it sooo much! I want to have its baby! Okay, not really, but I do want that shirt and it is only ten dollars and I should buy myself an Xmas present even though I just bought this:

and this:

and this:
(Just the CD, not the t-shirt....for NOW anyway...bwahahahaha!)

And I am going to quit blogging now and go write some more novel, but before I go, let's share a hearty HELL YEAH! Go here,

look for Sunday, December 18th, buy tickets, and say it with me- HELL YEAH! WOO HOO, MOTHER FUCKERS!!!! (We already bought tickets and have a babysitter, so Jason gets to go this time. Yay!)

Hopefully, my lame ass novel will be done by Wednesday at midnight and then I will be back to regale you semi-monthly with such stories as How I Ruined Thanksgiving for My Mother, Why Does My Family Keep Calling Me Fat?, and Why I Am (Almost) Out of a Job (or, A Tale of a Merger of Equals). Sometimes, I'm glad that no one reads this blog.

10% done!

My NaNo novel is 10% finished!


Um, there's only 15 days left...halfway through the month, 10 percent done...not good odds, huh? But I like to be the underdog. I'm a come from behind kind of girl...(please insert dirty joke of choice here. Before I do.)

The worst part is, I used that horrible line above previously in an email and am recycling it for use in my blog. Terrible.

If you like watching trainwrecks, here's a link to my NaNo blog:

Warning: there's no editing involved to date in this novel. That's what March is for...

mystery chick

I have no idea who she is, but she's hot in a trashy sort of way.

Toot toot!

That's the sound a train makes, if you didn't know.

If he were any cuter, I'd have to sell him.

I am learnin' how to be all 21st century...

Insert curse word of choice here.

Take my word for it, I wrote a pithy lead up, then went to lay down with the Kid to scare away the monsters, only to come back and finish my post and find that it had been eaten when I tried to post it. Fucking monsters.

Oh, well.

Here are the pics. One tawdry mystery tramp, and two pictures of a very darling child. If he were any cuter, we would have to sell him.

Onto my novel, which for those of you not in the know, is brought to you by the geniuses at

My progress, such as it is, can be followed at

Luv, MH

Hope this picture posting thang works. I'm new to this whole Advanced Internet Concepts idea. I know, it's been around for a few years, but, hey, we're just catchin on to Books on Tape around here, okay?

Update: fuck it. I sorta figured it out, but it's clunky. But it'll do for now. You get to see cuteness, I get to go work on important things, like the 1666.67 words I am due to produce today to hit 50k by November 30th at midnight. Wish me luck.
