The mind is willing

...but tonight the body isn't. Too many late nights has caught up with me so I am taking another day off from writing. I plan a long writing session tomorrow evening, hoping to catch up. I'm pleased with my progress so far but since I do have a day job, I need rest to be able to deal with all the phone calls from whiny graduate students who have holds on their records and can't register.

I do have a treat planned for myself tomorrow night. I'm making Alton Brown's pizza dough. My friend L has made pizzas several times so I finally decided to make my own. I hope it is as good as hers. I made the dough tonight, but I have to keep it in the fridge for 18-24 hours so this won't be something I can make quickly. The dough is worth the work that goes into it. I can't wait for dinner tomorrow night.

A special THANK YOU to all the veterans out there and those still currently serving. Your sacrifice is much appreciated.

How was the pizza? I love Alton Brown. We saw him last month in NYC for the Food & Wine Festival. He's exactly the same in person as he is on TV. Really personable, funny guy.

Keep up the writing! I think the pep talk writers have been right about the phases, at least for me. Keep on chugging.
