Sorry to cause the alarm and panic of a missed day, which I'm sure occurred...or, you know, not...

Anyway, I was out of town. And, it (for some reason) was a town without any Internet access, like, at all. So cool, right? It was like living in the 1800s, except in no way whatsoever!

Hey, guess what? I Googled NaNoWriMo, and this is what came up:


So. Back to, you know, the actual Words From The Hallway. Today's quotes are from the Fairly Mean category. My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"Be calm--just strangle them with your mind." While taking calming breaths and sitting in a downward frog yoga pose.

"You could tear Nick's head off if you want!" Well, I probably would have anyway, but thanks for your permission! (This was a teacher, folks.)

"It's not like I put a rabid squirrel in your backpack!" ...this time.
Person 1: "What's in there?"
Person 2: "Hair! Hair!"
Person 3: "Projects from sixth graaaaade!"
Person 1: "If we're lucky it'll be Gavin by the end of this." Funny, I was hoping the same thing.

"Ben has photographic amnesia--he forgets things as soon as he sees them. Or hears them." What about tasting them? 'How did the cake I made for you taste?' 'Wait, what?'

Hello again!

I missed ya! How've you been today? I've been fantabulous! Guess what? I'm supposed to be doing about five other things right now! Guess what I'm actually doing?


I know.
You would never have guessed.

Ooh! Ooh! I found another picture for NaNoWriMo! Tada!!

Gues what else? Today's Words are from the category of...Say What? My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"If you stole it, I'm gonna beat you up with my fists!" As opposed to beating him up with your ear.

Person 1: "I need an eagle. But it'd have to be big enough for a couple people. And our backpacks, if we had it at school...and a house...and a pool!"
Person 2: "Is it an in-ground, um, in-eagle pool?" Yes. And it is filled with the tears of a thousand tiny eagles, crying because they can't unwrap chocolate bars or text due to their lack of thumbs.

"[singing] Today you are a llama, tomorrow you are ruler of the universe!" But I want to rule the universe today!

Person 1: "And the naked mole rats!"
Person 2: "From the radiation!"
Person 1: "They would accept you as one of their own!" Um...okay...there is really nothing to say to this...

Sandwich Day!

...What do you do with that? I mean, I eat a sandwich on more days than just November 3rd, so, ya know, whatever...
Oh, and I've heard it's also Ice Cream Day. Ooh! I know!

*ahem* Three words: Ice Cream Sandwich.

*ahem* Four more words: Buy one for me. Please. (OK, that's 5. See why we don't always need manners?)

You may have noticed the NaNoWriMo theme to the pictures lately. They are encouragement and support for all you NaNoers out there! :)

Incidentally, today's WFTH are in the Kinda Gross category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"I'm not decomposing that much yet!" Always a good sign...I think.

"I think my little toe is sweating right now." Thank you for sharing. Please continue describing other utterly disgusting facts about your feet.

"In my mind I'll assume it was Alex's face: It was green." A great conclusion.

"Ew! Where did that hand come from?" If it's disembodied, that'd probably be me. Sorry 'bout that.

Happy Name Your Car Day!

I do not have a car. I named it anyway. XD

Today's Words are from the Say What? category. My comments are in italics, enjoy! :)

"[summarizing a poem] Okay, then...person...want...friend...dig up plants...move across town!" poetry!

"I hate spiders. My buddy and I went huntin' once and I walk into this huge spiderweb. I shot it." I'm sure that helped the situation a lot.

"Let me cure the slime for you!" Uummm, feel free.

Person 1: "At 4:30 in the morning, 'spork' is the funniest word in the world."
Person 2: "'Sponge' is 3:30, 'spork' is 4:30--and at 2 in the morning: 'handcuffs.'" Thank you. I will now make a chart for extra reference.

"Does anybody know how to do this crap so I don't die on the pedestal of doom?" Nope! Have fun on your doomly pedestal!

(See title. NaNoWriMo (AKA National Novel Writing Month) has started!!!! Participating authors must write 1,667 words a day of their own novel every day of November, and at the end of the month, they have a fully-fledged, completely-unedited, diamond-somewhere-deep, deep-in the rough, 50,000 word novel! So, yeah. That's pretty exciting!!!!!)

But in other news, (way less exciting, I know), today's WFTH are from the Fairly Mean category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"[singing] Jordan fails at life. Ha!" Fala, lala, lala, lala!

Person 1: "Dear Diary: Today Ben received toweling lessons."
Person 2: "He needed them."
Person 3 (Ben): "Oh shush."
Person 1: "Still, it's a good diary entry."
Person 3: "Your face is a good diary entry." Gasp. Tell me you did not just say that.

"Back-back, you mutz!" Wait, what?

Person 1: "I got stopped by a security guard on the way here. She wanted to read my shirt."

Person 2: "What's it say?"
Person 1: "'You're just jealous 'cause I'm buff.'"
Person 3 (teacher): "And then she laughed 'cause it's a lie!" True, true.

"They're not the freak of nature that is the hero." But I wanna be a hero! Does I has to be a freak of nature too? I don't wanna!

Person 1: "You like the part of her wasting her time in the end."
Person 2: "Yeah. I thought it was hilarious." But of course.

So, like I said, today's a Send-it-in-Sunday! Feel free to post any WFTH you've heard in the comments! It's also Halloween! Boo!

(I know. I scared ya. You don't have to try to hide it.)

Anyway, today's quotes are from the Say What? category. My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :D

"In the figure, my entire arm got decapitated!" Why did your arm have a head to be chopped off in the first place? Or, why don't you know what decapitated means?

Person 1: "Did you take a picture of cheese?"
Person 2: "No, I took a picture of chicken and the chicken looked like a heart and the mushroom looked like a Martian." Because that makes sense.

"If it's a tomato, I'm a storm trooper. If it's a pizza, I'm Michaelangelo." The artist or the turtle that is ninja and mutant? Or the ninja mutant artist?

"My rock is thirsty." As long as it's not stoned.

"Don't inhale the worms!" But why not? They're good for the lungs!

Bonus Day!!

Hello, ladies and germs! Not only is today Halloween, and Send-It-In-Sunday (so feel free to post in the comments any Words From The Hallway you may have heard lately! :D), and the last day of October, but it's also....(drumroll please)....a Bonus Sunday!!! Yaaay! That means you, yes, you, get two posts today! May the band play and the confetti flow freely!

Hey. The quotes in the yesterday's post are spaced really weird. Hmm...It's all the candy corn's fault. Yes. Let us place the blame on as many inanimate objects as possible.

So, today's bonus Words From The Hallway are from the Rather Duh-Inspiring category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"I'll just put 'I show modesty by feeding my dog.'" Umm, you do that. You know, of course, that that has nothing to do with modesty, right? Just checkin'.

"It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's a piece of paper." How anticlimatic, yet aerodynamic.

"You don't want to get rid of your muscles. Muscles are good." Obvious statement-maker is obvious.

"2 times 1 cannot equal 2 if you add it!" Wait, what? Is this one of those new scientifical theories? Well, I refuse to believe it!
