I gotta admit it, I’m getting spoiled by the April A-to-Z Blogging Challenge. Suddenly I have something to post about every day, without straining my brain to think of a topic. (Somehow, I feel like that means I’m doing it wrong.) But once it’s over, I’ll have to go back to random thoughts on days when I can’t think of anything mythological to talk about. Or when I’m tired. Or whatever.
That’s sort of depressing.
But this is going to be post 222, I think, which means I’m close(ish) to my 335 goal, and once I hit that, then I can stop posting daily, and only post when I actually have something to say. (The reason it’s 335 and not 365 is to take off 30 days for NaNoWriMo, so I wouldn’t be taking any time away from my novel.) Actually, 222 is only about two-thirds of the way there, isn’t it? That’s not really even close-ish. Not really. But it’s still more than halfway! So…yeah, don’t know where I’m going with this.
And I should be working on transcribing my interview. But…ugh. Having to listen to my own voice in a recording is agonizing. And all the more so ’cause I keep realizing that there were follow-up questions I should have asked.
Still, if he grades on a curve, I may still be all right. Maybe.
Eh, at least it’s better than failing. There’s no way I can fail at this point, short of simply not turning in the final assignments, so that’s something. Though I’d still rather get an A, but…yeah, that’s just not gonna happen. (I’d feel better if I had any idea what kind of grade I got on the last research paper, though. He still hasn’t gotten those back to us.)
Okay, so closing out my rambling, boring stuff with something that might actually be entertaining, to reward any poor soul who’s actually read this far.
Lately, at the museum, I’ve been accessioning die-cast cars that this guy donated for some reason. This has been an up and down kind of thing, as a few of them were actually kinda cool, some of them were very much “why on Earth would anyone waste their money on this thing?” and others were decidedly “meh.” Anyway, today I got to the last of them (thank goodness!) but I was quite shocked at what I saw on the box of one of the few that was a “don’t open it” kind of collectible. (As opposed to the kind where if you don’t open them, you can’t even see them, which is what most of his cars were.)
So this car is a commemorative for the 2012 London Olympics. And in the text on the side of the package, it said something about “It’s predecessor, the Austin”…
Yes. You read that right.
Or, if you don’t get it, let me explain. They wrote “it’s” where they should have written “its”. They used the contraction of “it is” instead of the possessive pronoun “its.”
I was just sitting there going “C’mon! I’m an American! I shouldn’t have a better grasp of the English language than someone in England!”
