NaNo Challenge

I've been having a hard time getting into NaNoWriMo this year. I think I have been thinking about it too much and had built it up so much last month that I'm stumbling a little bit.

There are a couple people in the office that I convinced to take a crack at NaNo and they haven't started yet. So, I came up with a NaNo challenge for the night. Whoever doesn't get in at least their daily 1667 tonight has to do someone else's annoying, mundane task in the office. They were weary of accepting, thinking I would win, but I convinced them to do it.

Then I thought of another challenge. Jones Soda Co. usually puts out a Thanksgiving pack every year. I've never had it, but I've heard it's pretty gross. Who would want a turkey flavored pop? Anyway, I think some time later in the month, I'll propose a word war to take place over a couple days and the loser has to drink the pop. Makes me want to gag just thinking of it.

Jones has some interesting flavors.

The limited editions are sometimes carried by Fred Meyer (another fine PNW retailer) and I get to look and think "ICK!!"

Yeah, I'm thinking the ICK factor would be enough to motivate me. I got my word count in that I needed not to have to pick up some extra tasks in the office, but just barely.

That's so gross

We were at Target yesterday, where I've previously seen this most disgusting of gift packs and they didn't have any there, but maybe it's too early in the season.
