Day 8: Hung Jury

Not sure how to evaluate today. We'll see if the jury can reach a verdict.

The downside: It felt like a great day to work. Normal morning routine, beautiful cool weather, cooperative cats, good coffee... but I still couldn't get "in the zone" and concentrate on much of anything. It felt like torture to stay in my chair as I attempted to focus on a few paragraphs. I felt so antsy, both mentally and physically. I know I was doing some work, but it never felt right. Very frustrating to be unable to work when I so badly to make lots of progress!

The upside: I think I made progress in spite of myself. I realized that the last few paragraphs I'd marked off as goals for today were essentially the same thing, and perhaps should be combined. That's one way to achieve a goal -- make it smaller as you're doing it! So I combined some paragraphs, wrote some filler, wrote some stream-of-consciousness stuff that will need serious revision, and now I'm very close to having a draft. It's taken me a while to work my way through the intro, and as I got toward the end, I realized I couldn't really remember what was covered towards the beginning. So I printed the thing and will wrestle with it tomorrow. But the upside is that, yes,I have printed about 25 pages of Actual Paragraphs. So that is progress, even if it felt icky to get there.

Another upside: had a great run today in the cool weather. And yoga last night was awesome, if quite sweaty. I do Power Yoga with an amazing instructor through a community ed program, and she really put us through our paces.

Tonight is homemade Indian food (what is known in our household as the Mahatma Gandhi Victory Diet) and a trip to Costco. Speaking of which, a friend of mine told me a funny story she heard from her neighbor. They live in Durham, NC, and this neighbor attended a barbecue that she described as "Bubbalicious." While at this bbq, the neighbor found herself in a frightening conversation in which she was urged to avoid Costco because it is "run by Communists." There are so many things wrong with that I don't know where to start, but by way of explaining this lamebrained idea to my friend, I thought maybe some folks in NC believe the Commies are running Costco because they actually treat their workers fairly?? Check out this good NYT story, and wish me luck in the cheese department.

sounds like progress to me.
Knock out those inner voices that say you are cheating or not doing enough.

You did something. That's progress

Yeah! A rough draft should be celebrated. And thanks for the reminder to cancel my Sam's Club Membership before it automatically renews. It's like trying to quit the gym....

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I want...no make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.


The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

Some of the sports that are being bet online are horse racing, greyhound racing, and football.Online betting works the same with all the betting websites on the net. These businesses have grown for years. You can play with it by using a single account. Some of these websites also offer gambling online, you are just like playing at the casino and you can bet using the same account.

The reason why there is a line is because one team is going to be favored over another to win the game. This way the oddsmakers can level the playing field, making the bet attractive to both sides. In this case San Diego is the favorite and New England is the underdog. This means that if you are placing your bet on San Diego, the Chargers will have to beat the Patriots by at least 3 points for you to win the bet. If they lose the game or win by less than 3, you lose your bet. The second number shows 44, which is the over/under score. By betting the over, you are putting money on the possibility that the sum of both team’s score will be greater than 44-points at the end of the game. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
