Kiss Me, I’m Irish

(My Original Blog Post:
I just got an e-mail from Walmart that makes me wish the credit cards were paid off? Why?

Because of this: PlayStation 3 Blu-ray Entertainment Value Bundle! Price: $488.00. Yes, I said $488.
PlayStation 3 Blu-ray Entertainment Value Bundle includes:
* PlayStation 3 80GB Console
* Sony Blu-ray Remote
* Your choice of two (2) PlayStation 3 games
* Your choice of four (4) Blu-ray movies
Holy crap!!
From the choices, I would have to choose:
Games: LEGO Star Wars: Complete Saga and Madden ‘07, though Josh would prefer 08 🙂
Movies: A Knight’s Tale (Widescreen), 50 First Dates (Blu-ray), Underworld (Blu-ray), and The Legend of Zorro (Blu-ray)

Stupid economy. Ruining my plans again 😦

{November 8, 2008}   Word Count For Yesterday

Oh my god, I so struggled yesterday to reach my goal. I didn’t think I would.
But!! I did!!
11,677 … reached it at 10pm, XD. I wrote about 1K of those in a half-hour.

Piece of advice for those who struggle to meet the word count: count backwards, use percentages.

For example: (today’s totals)
GOAL: 13334 / Completed: 11677 / Percent: 88% / Words to go: 1657

Maybe that’ll work for you. I know it does for me 🙂
I also do it through Plurk, so I can keep track and get that awesome possum encouragement 🙂
I’d do it here, but I don’t want to flood other’s friend’s lists 🙂
