More Procrastination

Sitting in Cafe 13 for Nanowrimo editing group. I look up from my giant cup (more like a soup bowl) of coffee and see a photo of a castle in Slovenia. I realize I am analyzing the photo not in terms of composition or lighting, but in terms of how defensible the castle is and where would be the best place to launch an attack. There are some good spots for dumping boiling oil; almost a straight shot down the castle wall.

At the same time, I'm wondering what kind of pie to make to celebrate National Pie day. I'm thinking maybe some sort of cream pie, maybe dark chocolate or banana. I'm not really in the mood for a fruit pie. Or maybe a Normandy apple tart, although I'm not sure that really lives up to the spirit of National Pie day.

you need a good defensive pie to go with the castle. i vote for a berry pie with whipped cream. the berries will stain the enemy's clothing and the cream will blind them. mwah-ah-ah-ah-ah!!!

Boiling oil is so trite. I vote for heated sand - gets into the attachers' armor and cooks them to death before they can get the armor off! Plate mail was such a bad idea...

Isn't it fun to find yourself slowly moving into your own novel? Perfectly placed photo on that day, even though it might have been there a million times before it was the perfect moment to really see it.

What kind of pie did you make?
