  • It's sea otter awareness month! I guess I should include some facts. They are endangered and internationally protected, a keystone species, the largest of the otter species at up to 5 feet long and 90 pounds (40 kg), live almost entirely in the water, have the thickest fur of any animal, can stay submerged around 5 minutes, and the oldest known otter died at 28 years old!
    Happy World Oceans Day! The deepest part of world is in the Mariana Trench, a valley called Challenger Deep, which has a depth of nearly 7 miles BELOW the surface!
    Happy Pi Day, and Happy Birthday to Albert Einstein! Pi was discovered 317 years ago, he was born 144 years ago.
    I love Thanksgiving! I could eat turkey all year! Stop trying to force me into a Christmas mood and let me enjoy my turkey day! Especially you, radio stations with your Christmas music, you know you're going to stop playing the music halfway through Christmas day anyway! Instead of trying to force us all to go earlier and earlier, how about keeping the music and festivities up until the new year?
    Is anyone doing NaNoWriMo this year? I haven't seen as much hype as usual around it this year.

    National Novel Writing Month. It has its own website and everything. The main goal is to try to plan and write a 50,000-word novel in the month of November. Some people also use it to try to put 50k toward their current WIP. If you achieve 50k, you basically receive bragging rights, and the website has some "winner goodies" that are basically just coupons and stuff. Challenging and fun.

    Huh. Might actually try that. Sounds like a good way to kill time and be productive.

    I've done it every year for I think 5 years now. I don't always succeed in getting 5k, but I always am more productive than if I don't try. If you're interested, just look up Nanowrimo dot org. Good luck!
    Why do smoke detector alarm batteries always choose the middle of the night to die, causing the alarm to beep incessantly until you can figure out how to reach it and wrench said batteries out of the squalling device?
