Frankencold: 2, Novel: 0  
Well technically it's like novel: 233 because I tapped out that many words over the past few days between naps and/or forgot to record them before. Then I typed one extra word just so I could be at 12345:

12345 ★ 50000


Other things that happened:

1. My fever broke! And then it came back. :( I think this is an unholy confluence of different colds. And permanent mono. (Note: I feel very lucky, because the CFIDS symptoms that showed up reminded me that woah, that's now an unpleasant surprise as opposed to every day. Yay! You can do it, gimpy immune system!)

2. My laptop started making a horrible buzzy static sound that gets louder whenever I type. THERE ARE TINY ELECTRONIC BEES TRAPPED IN MY LAPTOP SOMEWHERE THAT DON'T LIKE ME WRITING ON THEM.

3. I downloaded the free trial of Scrivener because their tutorial video got me at a weak moment. Perhaps new software will equal MAD BRILLIANT EASILY WRITTEN REST OF NOVEL, right? Totally too tired to click "import."

4. I walked to the store in the brief no-fever interval because I ran out of food and feared death. I bought soup but no saltines. What kind of sick person doesn't buy saltines!?

5. THE ELECTRONIC BEES. OH GOD THE BEES.

6. I had a dream that peanutbutterer and miera_c collaborated to write a giant Atlantis fic, but I didn't read it because it was an AU about the industrial revolution and I was afraid I would be sucked into the story and coal dust is bad for you.

I don't buy saltines, I buy Goldfish crackers. Because I'm 4 and I like to sing "The snack that smiles back!" as I drown them in the soup and then eat them.

I didn't read it because it was an AU about the industrial revolution and I was afraid I would be sucked into the story and coal dust is bad for you.

O.o

It was a dream, IDEK! Even in the light of day, I wouldn't put it past you to write an AU set in the industrial revolution, though. Mill girl/coal miner for short-life-expectancy OTP?

Oh man the goldfish and teddy graham ads BOTH used to freak me out when I was a kid! I couldn't eat things with faces. It was probably because of the existential horror of The Gingerbread Man.

Now I sort of want to read a story called, "The Electronic Bees". It'd be set a bit in the future, where little almost-AI robot bees fly around us, but instead of pollinating flowers, they act like a form of social media or news distributor and pollinate us humans with knowledge, news and gossip. At midnight this seems like an excellent scenario. In the cold light of day, I will probably want to bitch slap this idea

Just pretend I wished you good writing vibes and never mentioned bees.

I laughed about this for a good 5 minutes. Quote of the day!

That does rather sound like something I would do. But no more plot bunnies! The ones I have are starting to organize and plan a hostile takeover.

Nothing creeped me out like Teddy Ruxpin and the stupid bear from the detergent commercials. Though I've noticed they've now given the Goldfish names. First off, how am I supposed to tell if it's a girl fish or a boy fish? Also way to make me feel even more cannibalistic, Pepperidge Farm!

They gave them NAMES?? Stop anthropomorphizing things we're supposed to eat! EXISTENTIAL HORROR, I TELL YOU!!

I kind of liked the downy bear, though I've never used fabric softener. I should probably try that someday. And his voice was way less creepy when I was a kid - it's pretty off-putting now.

More than a little bit.

Fabric softener is actually generally not necessary. Detergents are a lot less harsh than they used to be when fabric softener was really helpful, but these days, a lot of detergents even have fabric softener built in. (I avoid such things due to allergies as well. If they ever stop making Era laundry detergent I'm screwed.)

I use All Free & Clear and it is magical and wondrous!

I also use oxy-clean because I share washing machines and ew germs and diseases.
