Day 30: The End

Wow. Another year of NaBloPoMo has come to an end. I wish I could write something really profound here, but, you’ve read my blog so you know I don’t do profound.

the-end

Now we can go back to ignoring each other until next year.

Day 26: More Stats

So this will post as the 27th because apparently WordPress is six hours ahead of me. But it’s the 26th where I am so I haven’t missed a NaNoBloPo post, for those of you keeping track.

I have passed 100 followers on this blog. I have passed 100 followers on one of my stories. That means more than 100 individual people on each site are reading something I wrote. And are evidently entertained enough that they keep coming back for more.

That puts a lot of god damn pressure on me.

Day 25: Sherlock Holmes vol. I

holmes I

Clocking in at 1059 pages, this was the biggest read of the year. Sorry, Murakami. It was my first time reading Sherlock Holmes. Oh sure, I’d seen a couple episodes and movies, but I never actually read the stories.

I learned that Sherlock Holmes did cocaine. They kind of gloss over that in the earlier films- especially the ones geared towards kids. I learned Dr. Watson got married.

The stories were good. Sometimes there was justice, sometimes there wasn’t. Sometimes everything was tied up in a neat little bow, other times everything was up in the air.

I liked it. Definitely worth the read, but I’m going to wait before tackling volume II.

Day 24: Autumn Bucket List #14: Bake a Batch of Pumpkin Muffins

I used this recipe and whipped up a dozen and a half last night

The recipe doesn’t call for butterscotch chips, but I throw in half a cup anyway. Maybe next time a whole cup. It’s been a while since I’ve made these

Sprinkle cinnamon on top right after pulling them out of the oven

I think I went overboard with the cinnamon.

Can you go overboard with cinnamon?
