Happy Halloween! New Adventures Start Tomorrow.

I love seeing Halloween costumes. I’d love to give out candy, but in the entire time I’ve lived in Chicago, I never have. Not one knock on any of my doors. Alas. I realized, this year, that I had no Halloween plans. So we made some.

Tonight, we’re moving a couch. In the rain. Good times. I’m going to try to make soup for dinner, though I don’t know if I have all of the ingredients.

Tomorrow? Tomorrow I embark upon a whole new adventure, mostly just to see if I can. Tomorrow is 1 November 2013, and I’m going to try NaNoWriMo for the first time in my life. While also traveling to the big, important birthday parties for my father-in-law (beginning of the month) and mother-in-law (end of the month). And, you know, living life. We’ll see if I “win” (manage to write 50,000 words of novel).

I will not be hosting Thanksgiving this year. That’s a big change for me. But that’s ok. Because, novel. And travel. And adventures. And change. And wishing in-laws “Happy Birthday!” in person.

I’ve lined up a few guest posts for you all in November, mostly due to that NaNoWriMo thing. I think you’ll enjoy them. I even managed to talk one of my old labmates into writing a bit about her research. I can’t wait to read that one, myself.

I hope you guys enjoy tonight, whatever you do, and the guest posts over the next month. As well as any other posts I manage to sneak in myself.
