Whoopee Cushions and General Madness

NaNoWriMo kicks off on Wednesday. The 7th Annual Day of the Dead show happens a week from Saturday. What the hell was I thinking?!!

I spent the weekend scouring the internet for sound clips, shopping for sound effect toys - including a whoopee cushion & a cap gun/shotgun, gathering supplies for the ofrenda*, making flyers amidst great amounts of cursing, cleaning the studio (and my oven!!!), and as an extra bonus, plotting my NaNoWriMo novel. Yeppers. I have lost a ton of sleep and most of my hair, and it ain't even close to being over. Did I mention that the hubster, who normally handles most of this crap is going to be in Tucson until the end of the week? No? Well, he is. Now I gotta go put together the playlist for the cd going to the VIP guests at the show & cut down some quarter sheet flyers before I make dinner. And yes, I would like some cheese with my whine. A nice brie with fresh fruit would be lovely...

*An ofrenda is an altar for deceased loved ones. I'll go into this more in a later post for those of you who aren't familiar with El Dia de los Muertos...

ah, the whoopee cushion. i wonder if a poor soul exists who never owned one. that would be terribly sad. i remember discovering that they actually worked better if you placed them behind a blanket draped over the back of a chair. a lot more bang for your buck audiowise. i think that's because a fat ass and deep cushion muffles the sound, or can even smother it completely.

good luck with NaNoWriMo. can we just call it nan?

i'm excited about following everyone's progress!
