So last weekend I dvr'd the National Book Awards ceremony, and last night Charlie and I watched it. (Well, actually I think it was at 5:00am this morning, but I've become such a vampire, I can't tell the difference between night and day anymore.)
God, it was so moving and inspiring to listen to these intelligent, accomplished people making speeches full of meaning and *not* being cut off by a floor director or a rude interlude of music.
If there's anywhere on earth I aspire to be someday it's at this annual event!
And on a totally un-related note, we got our annual Thanksgiving dinner of an Amalfi's pizza, and we've already been indulging. Then I wrote some more words. I'm up to about 18,000, not nearly enough. I need to get back to it.
