Three thousand words later

I find myself without the energy to write two blog entries. So for today's installment, please go here.

And if you've ever tried Weetabix, please tell me if it tastes as awful as it looks. I'm curious, but not curious enough to drop a couple of bucks on it.

Weetabix's new American marketing campaign is ABSURD. They were hiring people to hand out samples on the street during SXSW, so maybe you could try to score one of those!

I finished the first draft of my novel (the one I was working on last fall while I was taking your class) a few days ago: word count 77,020.

Congrats on your Statesman article!

Woo hoo, Monique! And with your sense of humor, I'll bet it's fabulous.

(Monique is a stand-up comedian, and she's hilarious.)

We'll have to have a celebratory coffee!

And I TOTALLY agree with you re: Weetabix. What are they thinking? Will have to head downtown for a free sample...

Personally I like the flavor of Weetabix, and they're not near so tasteless as shredded wheat. However, I think they DO need milk (else they're positively Saharan), and they don't have as much fiber content as you might think to look at 'em. Which is why I have to stick with All-Bran, a theoretically-comestible that I personally regard as a kind of sawdust, but a sawdust that can be brought to near-edibility with the addition of cubed dried fruit and lashings of milk, and letting it stand for a few minutes.

I LOVE your description. And if you like the flavor, I'll have to take the plunge and try it. But I can't believe they're not as fibrous as... say, sawdust. If I'm going to eat bricks, by golly, they'd better be at least as high in fiber as my loofah.

Actually, I must admit I stood with a packet in my hand at Central Market for five minutes on Wednesday before putting it back on the shelf.

Lashings of milk... love that. Thanks for the hilarious comment. I enjoyed it.
