Don't Want to Write

I think I'm the only person I know who doesn't want to write; I want to read. And of those people, a lot are doing NaNoWriMo or some version of it.

Spirit and Junie had a brawl this morning while I was in bed and they were both hiding by the time I got out here. Then Junie chased Spirit later, so I'm going to have to do something about Junie, too.

I got money for the week and went to get groceries. I was using one of those complicated buy-this-get-that deals and I asked the cashier if the computer had done it and she said "yes," but when I checked the slip at home, it hadn't. I'll take it with me tomorrow and take care of it then or Wednesday.

The WashPost's Outlook section (other people's opinions) has been running a "5 Myths of X" every Sunday for a while and in yesterday's "5 myths about our land of opportunity," it says In addition, we have seen a growing tendency among well-educated men and women to marry each other Erm, duh?

Also in yesetrday's WashPost, but in the Literary Calendar, it gives news that the last The Wheel of Time book will be three books. I've only read the first two, but I know a lot of people were upset when the last book got divided into two. Now, apparently, it's three.
