It is either the most awesome or the most horrifying thing I have ever seen, and I still can't decide which.
prarierabbit, I owe you an apology, because I woke up Sunday morning and realized that I had managed to sleep through the Sarah Palin tour. It sounds more positive than the story I had heard about some previous stop. According to our paper, nobody who wanted a signed book failed to get one, and she stayed an hour over schedule to make that happen and apparently took very few breaks. She went through about 1200 books in four hours, but I haven't heard from anyone who was let down by the lack of quality time. There was a small crowd of protesters and one guy who got himself arrested for protesting outside the approved zone. Sounds pretty much like she treated us right, and we didn't make big asses of ourselves, so win-win.
On the other hand, of course, some members of my home town are less capable of not making asses of themselves:

Up to about 42000 words in my NaTexWriMo challenge. I keep hitting the limit of what I know, and then I struggle enough to carve out a whole new section, and I've actually been pulling ahead on my word count per day. I guess it's valuable to have something to hit my head against, so I'm very glad to have been doing it. I think I'm finally optimistic that I'll find a way to make it to the end, even if I'm not perfectly sure where those last 8000 words are going to come from yet.
