Last night I caught a tweet from my dear friend Lynette with a link to her post on November being National Podcast Post Month. Turns out it’s also National Blog Post Month or NaBloPoMo 🙂 along with a few other causes all centered around content creation as she explains.
Well, I failed on the Podcast efforts, but since I actually happened to blog yesterday let’s see how far I can take this month long challenge to produce some content! …. Notice I didn’t say “quality” content 😉
Day 2 and My November is already off to a great start! Yesterday I started a new month’s challenge at the gym and when I got home I made a big ole pot of meatballs and sauce (yes I had meatballs for breakfast – what?).
Today I am ditching work early to Rock the Vote! Don’t forget FourSquare peeps, when you check in at your voting location you get a fancy “I Voted” badge! Revision: Be sure to Shout: I voted to get your badge!
Then I am off to the city for SingleEdition’sfinal “Live the Life You Love” of the year and I am truly looking forward to this event and the awesome women I expect to see in attendance.
This evenings topics cover How Guys Really Think and How to Get the Right One Interested in You, Discrimination against singles in the workplace, and Insights on how to handle rejection in relationships.
If you are a single woman in NYC and you can get yourself to the Samsung Experience store in Columbus Circle tonight by 6:30pm I highly suggest you do so!
Talk at cha again tomorrow!

That’s right, the month formerly known as November is now socially recognized as Movember.
I’m sure you are wondering what the heck is Movember?
Well, we all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (and shame on me for not dedicating more posts to the boobies!) so naturally we need a month to recognize and raise awareness for Men’s prostate cancer … and thus Movember was born.
You can get all the details on this cause and how you can contribute at http://us.movember.com.
As I did last year, I have changed my Twitter pic to reflect my celebratory Mo’ … I grow a lovely pink stache don’t you think?
According to the official Style Guide I’d say I’m rockin a bit of “Undercover Brother”.
I wouldn’t be suprised if there is an app out there to “Mo’ Yourself” … if so, please post a link in the comments !

This year is the first in possibly ever that I do not have a costume or an event to get dressed up for. Even our employee party was canceled.
I didn’t think much about it until just now and I gotta tell you I’m a little bit sad. Thinking back on all the planning and creativity that goes into a costume. The fun of getting dressed up and going out.
As a kid the objective was to fill a bag full of candy before curfew without getting egged by the neighborhood bullies.
And as an adult it’s been to get really, really drunk and not puke on your cute lil costume.
I’m opting out of either practice this year I suppose. Not so much by choice, but for no other option.
I’ve been too broke to even think about creating a costume…I’m not even buying candy for the potential trick or treaters who may visit my door. Yes, I will be hiding in my bed under the covers.
I have a limited social circle here in NJ so the party invites haven’t exactly been pouring in.
And the only man in my life right now has no interest in seeing me on the weekends or taking me out and certainly wouldn’t be caught dead in a costume … or so it seems.
So what else have I to do? I guess I’ll whip up a batch of witches brew, maybe cook a pot of ghoulish chili or bake something pumpkiny.
I wish you all a Happy Halloween – Be safe and be sure to do some thing Frightening Fun for me!
