UPdates and Fill-ins

As I sit in my very own office, waiting for something to do at work, I am reminded of how much time I used to spend jotting down thoughts and inspirations in here.

I called this blog Oru's Infinite Characterization because I hoped to tell you about all the characters in my head - as well as flush out my own character. Once again, I think this purpose has started to flounder and dissolve.

So allow me to fill in some blanks.

Hurricane Irene was rough up here in Sunny Vermont. Weeks of renovations later and our first floor rooms were back in order (with very different, very... unique carpet.) Unfortunately, the Hurricane took Glenda the good Witch from me - my trusty purple cavalier. The muddy waters of the flooding filled up her circuitry and made her crazy, so unfortunately I had to send her away. But now I have 'The Boss' to take me to and from work, a dashing little ford Taurus wagon.

National Novel Writing Month was half a success for me, simply because I made the 50k quota. And nothing more, unfortunately. However, I am taking full advantage of the offers provided by their website, and hope to have 5 free copies of my Nano-ed material at my house by Christmas! (If only I could figure out how to make page numbers show up on the damn program without having to go through all 145 pages of it individually. *shudder*)

I am not so much choking in debt as much as carefully treading water, now. Which is good. Well, better! I replace one payment with another frequently, and not because I am a wasteful spender. I DID have to get a new car, after all.

My Tree is up in our apartment, and I have festive garland on my banister. Tomorrow I will be going and getting some adorable $1 decorations to further spruce up the joint. (I love Christmas decorations. Somehow, when done right, It just makes the place warmer, ya know what I mean?)

Sometimes I feel that I have been a neglectful friend and sister etc... but I content myself with the knowledge that had any one else been in my shoes, it would have been just the same. There is no ill-intent in my lack of calling or texting, there is just a monstrous lack of energy brought on by the inevitable drain of a poor-man's diet and lack of free time.

So bear with me everyone - Oru's going to be back online more frequently sometime, ok? I just can't seem to get there yet.
