NaNoWriMo a Go. And Halloween.

Alright, you guys. I've had it. I'm doing it. If you're doing it, we're doing it together.



NaNoWriMo.org... I'm "jennybeanjcb" if you guys want a writing buddy. I don't know what that means, I just know some of you have offered yourselves up as writing buddies. So, we should all be buddies. Though I should probably write the story with a pen name. I can't tell you details yet. I'd have to kill you.



Oh, and follow me on twitter too, (ExHotGirl).



Now that that's out of the way... some photos from Halloween! :)



One of my best friends, Jesse, decided to dress up as Julia Child! He won the costume contest, and left the bar with $300 in his pocket! Here's Jesse pre-makeup!





Here he is in costume:







I was so proud, I could have spit on a stranger:





Dan and I at the hotel getting ready:





Us at the bar trying to look all in character and stuff:







Me with Wes (Swish Embassy):





A few pics from the night:








Us with Junior from Reno 911!





My friend Jon and his girl Mal... or should I say, dead Waldo and the zombie that ate his face:






How was YOUR Halloween?!?? :)

well, today was day one and I failed. I didn't write a damn word today for nanowrimo. I guess I will have to force myself to write when I get home from work. I am determined to turn out 50k words. I didn't plan for it at all, so already I am at a disadvantage.

My username on there is sandra052785

I love the Julia Child costume!!

The Julia Childs costume is heeelarious. Yours' was pretty bitchin' too, Jenn.

Midwest Girl said...

I went as The Morning After. I wrapped myself in a bed sheet, and pinned a condom wrapper to it. I was a hit!

Love the halloween pics! And I'm so happy you are doing NaNoWriMo too! I just uploaded my first 1500 or so words. I don't know what writing buddies means either, but I'll look for you. I'm mommy2joe, natch.

kaitlin said...

Yeah, NaNoWriMo! I'm kaitimae over there, I'll go add you right now. Mostly buddies are for a healthy dose of competition (that person has 10,000 words? I MUST BEAT THEM!), and of course for cheering each other on, too. =)

Julie said...

I was Elphaba, and unintentionally scared the sh*t out of not only the neighborhood kids, but my youngest as well.

Love Julia, love your costume, am strangely attracted to the Waldo/face eating pair.

My NaNoWriMo is Snarkypants, I will look you up! Not sure what a writing buddy is, but hey! How can you go wrong with a buddy? (Unless it's a face eating one.)

BakerGirl said...

My first day of NaNoWriMo was a fail. I'm going to try to pound out a few hundred words and consider tomorrow my official start date. Challenges shouldn't start on weekends! I got caught up shopping for new running shoes!

I'm BakerGirl on NaNo!

Luvs the makeup jobbie!! it looked great!!

Kristen said...

Yay, another Nanowrimo buddy!! I almost chickened out last night, but when I realized I couldn't delete my account on there I thought, "eh, what the heck?" I don't think I'll write a novel in a month, but at least my story would have been expanded. Good luck to you and your writing pursuits!!

The BreakUp Coach said...

Favorite sentence I have read today, anywhere: "I was so proud, I could have spit on a stranger." How do you think of this stuff?

dragonfly said...

Great costumes, looks like you had a fun Halloween :)
And as I have no clue what NaNoWriMo is, I'm gonna go check it out!

Alex said...

HIs costume was wicked! Looks like you had a great night.

Amanda said...

i'm so excited you're doing nanowrimo as well! i'll have to remember to add you as a buddy later. hopefully we can all reach our goal of 50,000 words!

healthydiana said...

Ahahah loooove your friends' costume!

English Rose said...

your friend should of played julia child in the movie, Julie and Julia! Definitely better than Meryl Streep. I myself was in a spa in Dorset for Halloween, sipping random cocktails with names I can't pronounce and singing along loudly to the loud live music x

Miss Marilee said...

You looked effin' hot my friend! I'm loving it! Oh...and I think I just fell in love with your friend Jesse. No really. Julia Child is one of my heroes. (Surprise surprise!). Glad you had such an awesome night!! =)

NatureCat said...

Your costume is awesome Jenn. Creepy Sexy!

LiLu said...

I had a Where's Waldo friend too, and we saw a couple out! What's with the random revival?

Realmeg said...

You don't look like an EXhotgirl, looks like a NOWhotgirl

Quincifer said...

I stayed in, totally wasn't feeling it this year...and I am trying to plan a better christmas.
