Progress: Three Updates in One!!!

I've neglected to post my progress for a few days, mostly because I was fall-over-tired by the end of each night's run. So here it all is in one chunk.

Deadline: June 30, 2008
Today's Words: 450 (+ 39 yesterday + 642 on Monday)
Total words: 66,341 (23,341)
Musical stylings: Various dark ambient music recently gathered from iTunes and Webbed Hand Records.
Munchies: Cheddar Rice Cakes

Researched via Quickie Wiki or the Google Boogie: Hawaiian names
Mean Things: An adminstrator with a stick up his butt getting called on it, and corrected in front of his direct reports
Placeholder of the day: "by docking with Hamilton Station, you agreed to abide by the Space Council's policies concerning departure procedures" That needs to be reworked to sound much more official and pompous and boring and legal-rific, so I will have to hunt down analogues in today's world at a later date.

Amusing Tidbit from Kellie's Day: Drew is all about band-aids lately (he calls them "help" for his "ows") and, unless I lock the bathroom door, will climb onto the counter and dig them out of the medicine cabinet. This means it's not unusual to find band-aids in unlikely places before I remember that said door is unlocked and rectify the situation. Apparently today Drew decided that a stain on the floor translated into an "ow" and necessitated a band-aid.

Physical therapy contortions: My joints are unhappy with me and my neck is kinked. I might give myself a pass tonight so I can sleep without whimpering.
