Five Things for Wednesday, September 23rd

1.  I really, deep down in my bones, hate meetings.  The more people in them, the more excruciating they are.  I was in a meeting from 10:30 to 11:30 this morning, then in one from 2:00 to 2:45 this afternoon.  Add in lunch, and I was pretty much unproductive for 4 straight hours.  Meetings do nothing but interrupt my workflow and force me to listen to chattering idiots who love nothing more than the sound of their own voices.

2.  I really like peanut butter.  Jif in particular.  Now I want a goddamn Reese’s peanut butter banana sundae of Unholy Awesomeness.  Why did I have to say I like peanut butter?

3.  My campaign idea has begun to acquire little details as well as over-arching elements.  I may actually have to do something with this idea.  I think I might use it as the basis for the novel I write in November.

4.  Speaking of novels, I NEED to force myself to make time to write the zombie story.  It’s tough when I have trouble forcing it into work hours, since I don’t want to cut into the time I have at home with my wife.  I’ll have to figure something out with it.

5.  Today was the first time I struggled writing my 5 Things.  It won’t be the last, but I almost blew it off.  I don’t want to do that.  #2 was an example of writing the first thing that pops into your head.  Yes, I have very deep thoughts.
