This morning...

1. Went to class. Pushed professor's buttons with regard to the "humans vs nature" stereotype. Smirked.

2. Went to payroll to find out about my missing paycheck. Turns out they had it. Yeah, it was doing me a whole lot of good sitting in your frigging office.

3. Went to Home Depot to get some cheap ($10) education software I can review for my computer class.

4. Went to Spirit, the halloween store. Got Max (my dog) an angel costume. Hope it fits.

My muse is really chomping at the bit for nano to start. I ordered a nano t-shirt last night, too. I figure that'll make me have to finish, otherwise I won't be able to wear it without feeling like a shmuck, and if I can't wear it that's a waste of $15! Plus it goes towards their operational costs.
  • Current Mood: okay okay

Color me shocked. ;D

What buttons, pushed how? (Speaking as someone who rolls my eyes a LOT at the notion that we aren't part of nature...)
Well...

We were talking about Lewis Thomas, who basically felt that humans ARE a part of nature, not outside or above it. And the prof used, as his example of 'outside or above', loggers or "people who feel they have to dominate nature".

Now, I don't know any loggers personally. But I'm fairly sure they don't wake up in the morning and say, "Well, time to go dominate nature!"

So I pointed out that there's another group of people who would disagree with Thomas, those who feel humans, just by their existance, are attacking nature and are an affront to it. Like the earth has to be protected from bad old humanity. Those people also see humans as 'outside or above nature'.

I don't think he liked my point.

*giggle*

"Oh, I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay
I go out and dominate nature all day!"

I don't think he liked my point.

Which tends to happen with profs when one has a valid one. *rolls eyes*
when you say nano, I can't keep from hearing Mork from Ork, "Nano, nano!" I think I'm really showing my age.

Home Depot has computer software?

Can you share your muse? Mine's on the fritz.
NaNoWriMo
Do you think it's cheating if I write something I've already kinda started? Or should I just go for it with something new? Am I dumb or what? I don't think I've ever written more than 30 pages in a month. Am I pathetic?
I think the Nano FAQ says if you start writing before Nov 1st, you go to hell. But that might not be legally binding.

I've been writing plot sketches ;)
Note to self: Check FAQs from now on!

I had two brainstorms:
1) A good plot
2) I think I'm going to ask my English class to do this, too.

Thanks for introducing this whole thing!
