Now that you told me where it is, how can I not steal it?

You can drop the laptop off at my house or at EUOL's, or I'd be happy to come pick it up. You can find my number on Route Y, so give me a call.

By the way, my total last night was 37,069. This last week will be a crunch, but the story's on track and I should be able to finish on time.

36,044 for me.  However, watch out--tomorrow's going to be prime writing time.  I should get a good 5k or so done.

Fell, you're number is not posted on Route Y. I think it has something to do with their new system.

My email address is dreamon27x at yahoo dot com.

I got 1800 done last night. I think I can still do this. Just 17000 more to go, in 4 days. I can do it. I can do it!

It no longer hurts to move, though the bronchitis and the coughing and the crusty nose and the snot flow is still all there, so I feel like I can sit at the computer again. I hope to get a lot done, right after I do some calendar updating. and calm that crying baby.

44,212 for Wednesday. Assuming MoD shows up with that laptop, I'll be able to finish by Saturday at the latest.

ack! I shan't beat you then! wait
If i finish at all, I have a chance. Since I won't be doing it on Sunday anyway. It's been hard to work on it today, for a plethora of reasons but I'm on it now, I think.

You know, you'd think they would have picked a month with thirty-one days...

Okay, well, yesterday I didn't *quite* get 5k, but close enough.  46,02.  New Total: 40,646.  Less than 10k in three days--very doable.

You mustn't give up, SE!  You were ahead for so long.  Now you're going to let Fell stomp you?
