A Post About Nothing

I don't have anything meaningful to say. But I feel like writing. So hello to all my readers. For those who've already gotten Spider King, I hope you're enjoying it. Take your time. These things take a while to write, you know. I'm wondering why my Redskins are so terrible this year. Is it the owner? The coach? The players? I dunno. But it hurts to watch them. I feel like at some point, every player has got to say, you know this is a tough situation, but I still need to give my all. Dig deep. Fight adversity. If they don't, it's going to be a LOOONNNNNG season.

Last regular season football games for  my two boys. I sure hope they end on a high note. It's been a rough season. I just ate a protein bar that tastes roughly like hot cocoa and sawdust. Is that a good thing?

It's fall here in Maryland. Beautiful leaves falling. Nice cool temps. I still wish it was Summer.

I wish it was still summer too. I didn't get a chance to buy the book on the 7th, but I will be sure to buy it. I don't like Protien Bars either.

Cloe said...

I got the book!!!!!! My reaction? I hopped up and down and said, It's here! It's here!
I don't like protein bars. *makes a face*
I love summer! I wish it were still here.

You're a Redskins fan, too?! Wow. I've heard one person say that whoever is a fan of the Redskins and the Nationals are pretty devoted!

David said...

Thanks for the post about nothing... :P

Quite a bit of nothing wasn't it David? In my mind the blog post had some nice layering to it. Shows the skills and creativity of WTB does it not?

You really need to post some pictures of the beautiful fall trees for us! :)

No book yet for me, but I can't wait...

Almost everyone I know loves summer and spring over autumn and winter... even you, Sir Wayne *sniff* I feel so deserted... I love the cold seasons.

Mr. Batson,
You were my english teacher for 6th and 7th grade. Two of my bothers also had you. We heard you on the radio the other day and thought I would see what you have been up to. Thank you for inspiring us. It's good to see that your still at it.

I love fall, spring, and winter. I can't stand summer. It is way to hot.

I mean, considering you had two different people. I've tried writing like that, it's hard.

Bekah said...

I haven't read The Curse of the Spider King yet, but I want to. :)
Oh, I love the fonts in your header. The sub-title is in the font JaneAusten, or something similar to that, right? :D

I'm already re-reading CoSK :D (I kinda rushed through it the first time) anyways, great book!
I have one question though: How could you end it that way?!

Nisly_Family said...

That was a very informative post for being about nothing. ;) Got any more posts about nothing for us?

I have a question: On the page that flet master byorn says something like"we can let the women and children travel by the open and ungaurded", Then grimwarden narrows his eyes and it all clicks for him. Is it insinuating that byorn is a wisp or what?

It really has been a gorgeous fall here. My camera's been along for the ride every day I've walked, just amazing colors. It's like walking in a furnace of leaves.

M'lord, eating ANYTHING that tastes like sawdust isn't something to be repeated, even if there is some chocolate involved somewhere. ;)

And. . .shouldn't you be rooting for the RAVENS *ducks*

Nitsua said...

Lucky me, it's just summer down here :P Though it has been raining for the past few day :)

Kristi said...

You can have all the summer you want, if you want to come to Cambodia to visit. It is 88 degrees here at 4pm. I would love to have some of your fall weather. I miss it a lot. I am looking forward to getting CotSK when I visit in the states the end of November. Until the kids and I will have to wait.

Robin Lindsay said...

Ugh, hot cocoa and sawdust? Sounds like you're living on a space station eating processed rations. Down here in Australia, we've started hitting 30ยบ C, and I don't like the heat. You want to swap seasons?

Mariel said...

I bought CotSK on October 31, and finished it that night. xD It was totally awesome.
One of my favorite quotes is, "If this be typeset, I'm an aardvark." Aardvark is such a fun word. =)
