This weekend (Friday night through this morning) I learned several things:
-- Sometimes, no matter how badly you want something, and no matter how hard you try, the stars just aren't aligned right for that thing to happen. Unfortunately, that thing was NaNoWriMo. Funny part is, I had a hunch it wouldn't work out allllll they way back in September, during the car breaking/I-did-not-receive-my-paycheck debacle, but I ignored said hunch and proceeded apace. I didn't officially quit until late last night. At least this frees up my schedule for the next month.
-- The quickest way to gin up interest in an event is to announce that it's canceled due to lack of interest. You'll get "aw, I was gonna go to that! I didn't know we had to RSVP!" messages on the RSVP thread. You know, the one with "[Event name] RSVP Thread!" in big letters at the top. The one that didn't receive a single reply until you updated it to announce the event was canceled. Yeah. I'm not bitter. /blatant lies
-- On the upside, the doc says my ankle is doing great, I don't need physical therapy, and I can get on a bike again as soon as I want. So now all I have to do is buy a bike. Mmmmmm, bike shopping. Can't wait.
