I have decreed Thursday “Lame Jeopardy Stories” day! Pretend you are a contestant on Jeopardy and tell the most boring story you can when Alex comes to visit with you.

Alex: And here we have Nicole from Missouri. It says here on my card that you were attacked by a shark in Hawaii!

Me: *chuckles* Sort of, Alex.

Alex: What do you mean, sort of?

Me: Well, I was on a Hawaiian cruise and in some ports when you got off the ship, they have people wanting to take your picture. In this particular port, there was a man dressed up like a shark. My family did not want our picture taken, but the man dressed up like a shark grabbed my arm anyway, so I yelled, “Shark Attack.”

Alex: I see.

Me: But the best part was, I later realized he was dressed up like a dolphin, not a shark!

*fake audience laughter*

Alex: Well, hopefully there won’t be any questions about sharks or dolphins. Now, on to the next contestant…

NaNoWriMo Update: So, I decided to go ahead and give NaNoWriMo a try. My idea is terrible, the writing is AWFUL so far, but I think I lost sight of the fact the past year or two that NaNo is all about terrible and awful. For me, personally, if I worry about my writing being good or even kind of good, I just get so frustrated I give up. That is why NaNo is a good fit for me. Throw good out the window and just write. I think that’s what I need right now. So, this morning I wrote 1,700 really bad words. But, they were words! Yay for first day hope.
