As soon as I saw the word “NaBloPoMo” on Dr. B’s Blog, it was all over but the crying. And the posting of blog entries. But that’s going to take a while. Thirty days, by my reckoning.

I’ve already screwed it up, of course. It’s evening on the 1st of November as I write this, but the dates on this site are, for Lord knows what reason, formatted for UTC, which means that the timestamps on all the posts are — eight hours? Nine? I don’t know, way ahead of whatever time it is here on the west coast, and this post is going to look like it went up on the 2nd, and I’ll seem like I gave up on this post-every-day-in-November exercise before I ever began. Oh well, I’ll press on anyway. It beats another month of lists.
