Random Thoughts on a Wednesday Evening

1.) Justin recently got us memberships to our local gym. Wahoo? I really need to start working out, but I'm also as lazy as a sloth.

2.) So I went to a beginner's yoga class on Tuesday at the gym...and it was SO hard! The instructor kept coming over to chide me how I was doing the "Downward Dog" pose all wrong. ("You cannot lock your elbows! Your hands should be splayed like this!") And then in the middle of the class, this woman totally starts doing a headstand! Turns out, I had totally attended the wrong class. Whoops...

3.) Tonight, I met with my lovely agent-sisters Robin Talley and Jessica Spotswood for dinner and it was a blast as always!  Both of their WIPs sound really awesome and I'm sure we'll be hearing about their publishing deals in 2011. 

4.) My birthday is coming up in a couple weeks (I'm turning 28. Yipes!) and I'm debating if I should ask for a gift certificate to Anthropologie or to Amazon.com. Anthro is, like, my favorite clothing store ever but my reading list has grown exponentially in the past month. For instance, I really want to read the non-fiction book "The Emperor of Maladies" and I also want to tackle "The Lonely Polygamist." Hmm, decisions decisions! 

5.) My NaNo project is going pretty well but I need to make up a few thousand words. So far, I've written over 25,000-words, which is a feat in it of itself since I'm the slowest writer in the world. Plus, I'm easily distracted by shiny things. Gotta keep chugging along though! 

6.) Is anyone else a fan of the new HBO series, Boardwalk Empire? I'm kind of in love with it! The Roaring Twenties is my favorite era of history and it's really cool to watch a TV show rooted in this period. If I ever give up on this fiction writing thing, then I plan on getting a PhD in American history and focusing my dissertation on the flappers. Flappers are effing awesome, yo!
