1. This was an interesting Freshly Pressed post about an ad for a T-shirt company that had a bunch of little girls saying the f-word as some kind of pro-feminism message. I do agree that it’s immoral to get little girls to use the f-word, which they shouldn’t know at all. It’s also sad because I don’t even see how the f-word is shocking anymore… so they had to put it in the mouths of little girls to make it so. I don’t consider myself a feminist, but I do wish the feminists would use better tactics. They’re really not helping their argument, at least in this case.
2. I changed my NaNoWriMo idea, and in doing so, I realized that I obviously can’t write about something I have no interest in. It would be nice to re-do my journal, but nothing goes on in my life. At least not enough to get me 50,000 words. So I’m going to continue working on the background stuff for my main series of stories. It may end up to be a bunch of short stories, but it’ll hold my attention and fill up the word count. It’s not technically a novel, but I’ve rebelled before, and I don’t mind rebelling again.
3. Lynda is a site that offers a bunch of courses on business-related stuff, like MS Office, Adobe, SEO, and time management. I’m taking some of the time management courses because my job requires me to, and I’m surprised to find that they’re actually really good. (This is not a shameless plug for Lynda; it’s a shameless plug for time management skills and how, if you’re participating in NaNo, they are incredibly valuable. So if you don’t do any Lynda courses, at least skim through this book.)
4. This is completely random, but for a long time, I believed the only Limp Bizkit song I liked was “Behind Blue Eyes.” Today, I was listening to a classic rock station on the radio and “Behind Blue Eyes” came on, but it was a much older version by the Who, which was in fact the original artist. I had no idea that Limp Bizkit didn’t technically write that song, and I suppose I should have known better. :)
Hope everyone has a good weekend!
