[nablopomo] INTBloPoMo!

I have created a group over on the NaBloPoMo site called IntBloPoMo.

Group 'bio':
International Blog Posting Month. For those of use that feel a little excluded by the American exclusivity and jingoism implied by 'National' in the name NaBloPoMo. No, I don't hate Americans. Some of my best friends are Americans! ;-p

My reply to a thread on the group - "So, where are we all blogging from?":
I am in the UK. I created this group because the USian arrogance of calling NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo NATIONAL events and groups whilst at the same time allowing international participation seemed very condescending to me. Don't even get me started on the language they speak being called English! ;-p

My extremity of vehemence (big wurdz!) in that first paragraph is purposely exaggerated. I am not in the best of moods tonight but, then, I do have a few real life 'problems' to contend with! I have a lot of USian friends (as well as Canadian, Australian and so on). I am usually much more tolerant than I sound based on that first appearance!

The UK £ is also doing very well against the US $. From what I remember (with my MnSter eaten memory - where MonSter = Multiple Sclerosis), it used to be about three US dollars to two UK pounds but now it is $2US to £1! I have no idea whether that is good or bad for our economy - to be honest and selfish, if I can buy stuff more cheaply online from the US than I could in the past then I am happy! ;-p

Welcome to my first NaBloPoMo group!

A comment that I left on my NaBloPoMo page a few days ago:
NaBloPoMo and NaNoWriMo should really be called IntBloPoMo and IntNoWriMo respectively - they are both INTernational and not merely NATional... ;-p which I got a few, "You are right about the international thing!" type replies!

I wonder if NaNoWriMo or NaBloPoMo will rename themselves to be less jingoistic in the future - I am not going to hold my breath... ;-p

[photo] 2008 Calendar

I designed my 2008 calendar tonight. I have ordered some for xmas presents. I get them printed at Photobox. I guess that I can tick that of my todo list.

I was wondering if people would want to buy one. The way Photobox works, it is pretty tricky to show you the design of the calendar. I might try to put together an LJ post that has all of the images in it so that you can see them and a link to the calendar style design. I would also have to work out what to charge you for them!
