Breaking NaNo News...

There are 3 days remaining in November.  I have 13,243 words left to write in order to reach 50k.  You can see by my NaNo graph above that I've fallen quite behind in wordcount.  In fact, only one day was I actually on track (above the gray line). 

Sooo... Lovely Undergrad will be on a break tomorrow and the next day.  Just a brief hiatus so that I can churn out the 4,415 words-per-day needed to finish on time.  (I wrote over 8,000 words yesterday!)

LU will be back in full swing December 1, in time for lots of holly-jolly holiday goodness. :)

Wish me luck as I type toward the finish line!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
