Yay, 90k!

90k means 90,000, right? I'm always getting confused. Anyway, yay, because I hit it today. 90,000 words and counting! I mean, the and counting part's not my fave, I'd rather be done, but it won't be long now.

I'm very hopeful I can finish in the next few days so I have at least a day or two to think about my Halloween costume. My friends and I are throwing a big party, costumes not optional. I really need to rack my brains for something good. Especially since Stinger is going to outclass us all. He'll be ringing in All Hallow's Eve as Chris Knight, Val Kilmer's immortal character from the movie Real Genius. If you haven't seen it, rent it immediately. It's the most fun you can have with a subatomic particle stretcher, or whatever the hell the gadget is that they design in the movie. Anyway, it's fun. Some memorable quotes:

Chris Knight: Have you ever seen a body like this before in your life?
David Decker: She happens to be my daughter.
Chris Knight: Oh. Then I guess you have.
Kent: Uh, I'll catch up with you guys. I have to go to the bathroom.
Chris Knight: Okay, Kent, but I don't think that's going to help your confidence any, do you?
Chris Knight: Kent puts his name on his license plate.
Mitch: My mom does the same thing to my underwear.
Chris Knight: Your mom puts license plates in your underwear? How do you sit?

All delivered in Val Kilmer's best charming deadpan monotone, to the accompaniment of a shit-eating grin. It's priceless. Stinger's got the whole ensemble, from I Heart Toxic Waste t-shirt to bunny slippers.

Obviously, I will be covered in shame if I can't come up with something at least as good. Any thoughts? I'm open to suggestion.


Congrats on 90K. Yay! I'm sure you'll come up with something awesome.

First, congrats on the words, that is Fabu!

Second, I heart that movie and now, as a result, I have a crush on Stinger and must insist on pictures.

Perhaps you could go as an excessive amount of popcorn?

Nick suggested I dye my hair black and talk extra fast all night. Both your idea and his have merit.

Joan Holloway? You've definitely got the assets for it! All you need are a pencil skirt, matching, tight cashmere sweater, red wig and a fabulous 60's-style necklace! Like this:

Who is Joan Holloway?

Oh my gosh, you're still not watching Mad Men? This is Joan Holloway...

Gracious, she sounds like a minx! No, I haven't gotten sucked into Mad Men yet, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time. We haven't been watching much tv lately, what with the looming deadline and all.

have you finished yet?

and I second Meg's suggestion...Joan Holloway!

That SO brings back memories. Wasn't Val such a cutiepie? I am going to be glued to the workstation trying to type THE END to my manuscript. I've got a busy few weeks ahead of me, then when I get back from my trip I will be on another tight deadline. YAY! Don't you love the life of being a writer? Who has time to think of costumes!
