Have you ever participated in a seance? If not, would you consider it? What spirit would you summon and what question would you ask them? Do you believe we can get messages from the dead?

I'm an official member of TAPS, so what do you think? Now that I'm a GHOTS investigator, I'll be spending a good deal of my time trying to do exactly this. No seances so far, but you never know what could happen.

Well, it's finally November. The cool weather is rather nice - this being the one and only week of Autumn we have here on the glorious Gulf Coast - but it seems that it still should be January, the current conditions still remnants of the season before. It's hard to fathom that nearly a full year has passed, and we're a mere six weeks out from Christmas.

I really don't have much to say. But then again, do I ever? Outside of the random links I uncover, opinions of Anime, or the occasional political rant commentary rant, I'm perhaps the world's most boring individual.

No, really all I wished to say was a hearty "Good Luck" to all of those participating in this month's National Novel Writing Month, more affectionately known as "NaNoWriMo". I've been tempted to join, but there's simply too much going on at the moment in my life to dedicate the time required to pen a 50,000 word book. I do hope to compete at some point, perhaps next year as I'll be a bit more settled in with my life and have fewer family concerns hanging overhead.

It's also National Blog Posting Month, not so affectionately known as anything other than merely "Blogging Month". I don't think the shorthand used in the URL will ever catch on, but I do think this is something that I should participate in. I've grown quite fond of journaling, as it's known here on this site, but have gotten far too lazy as of late. Sometimes I fear that I've moved too many of my entries to Twitter, but in truth I've been interviewing at other jobs, in the process of starting work for a new organization, and dealing with death and illness in my family. In the past I'd simply drop off the radar, as I'm known to do from time to time, but at least this time I've been able to jot down a few random thoughts that are then fed back here through a nightly batch post.

At any rate, it will be good for me to stretch my mental faculties by forcing myself to think of things to say, new topics to discuss, and in general keeping more in touch with my many distant friends from all over the country and even the globe. I'll be forced to flesh out ideas more than just 140 characters long. I'll have to keep a keener eye on the news such that I have things to have opinions on. Most importantly, however, I'll simply force myself out of my self-imposed seclusion and rejoin the ranks of the human race.

And if I don't make it? It's of no real concern. I'll still become more involved even if I only hit 20 of the 30 days. In that regard, I can't really lose.
