Welcome to the next twenty-four consecutively lucid hours of my existence. As a participant in Blogathon 2009, I will be posting a blog every thirty minutes for twenty-four hours -- with a final total of 49 blogs by 9AM EST tomorrow -- in order to raise money for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). So far, donors have pledged to contribute $105 to IAVA. Although I never set a goal, I never expected to raise that much money! Thank you to everyone -- your support really means a lot to me.
After a bit of conversation and chai at the coffee shop this morning, I picked up B and, following a miscommunication that led to an incredibly stressed return sojourn home, immediately stole the living room television and popped "The Last of the Mohicans" into the DVD player (once D gets here, the guys will most likely take over the television with video games of some sort). I had originally planned to watch a movie pertaining to every major American war (hence "The Last of the Mohicans"), but unfortunately it seems that my plans will be undone. But, I couldn't find a War of 1812 or Korean War movie, anyway.
Time permitting, I hope to post blogs pertaining to military history, interspersed with current news or writing prompts. The blog will have a bit of a different atmosphere for the next twenty-four hours, but I hope you will still find it enjoyable.
It is now 9:00 and I have chai. Although I don't think it's caffeinated. At least it has sugar.
