I have a sick obsession with apocalyptic fiction. Of the several hundred movies I could call my favorite, chances are the first one to come to mind would be a Roland Emmerich one. Tidal waves washing over the Statue of Liberty send thrills up my spine. I don't have anything against the Statue of Liberty or New York but their demise makes wonderful fiction!
Same can be said for a super volcano. As my husband and I drove through Yellowstone a month or so ago, my face lit up as I saw us crossing the dotted line on the map, indicating the start of the caldera. This is it, I told him. If anything happens, we'll be vapor before anyone else knows.
(He finds this to be a sick fascination but then again, he's obsessed with torture porn like Saw and Hostel. At least I'm not obsessed with THAT.)
This year's Nano is vastly different from last year's Nano. Which is not to say better or worse but just as interesting to me, the person who has to breathe it for the next 30 days, hopefully.

- writing is apparently one of very few. Traveling? I like that. I'll be ending Nano in Miami this year so that's good. Um. Reading. Yea, I'm boring. Sigh.
