On the seventh day of NaNo, my true muse gave to me
Seven shows a-sassing,
Six books a-writing,
Four pumpkin cakes
Three cough drops
Two cuddly cats
And a family that’s dear to me.
D: Seven shows a-sassing?
A: Do you have something better?
D: Seven Dwarves a-singing?
A: It’s 13 dwarves, D.
D: I did not mean those dwarves, A.
A: So that means you didn’t intend for me to showcase the Desolation of Smaug end credits song here?
A: Too late!
D: You have no shame. So tell me about this show that was “a-sassing.” Can a show really sass?
A: You sass, why can’t a show sass?
D: I think you just like the word.
A: Perhaps – it is, after all, you with an “s” added to the front.
D: Me with an “s” added… are you calling me Superman?
A: (Eye roll) I just spent the last three hours of my life couch-bound and near-voiceless, wheezing and laughing along with Spaced. Totally wacked-out, totally awkward, and totally hilarious.
D: And totally sassy?
A: Now you’re just mocking me.
D: . . . yes. And doing quite well, might I add.
A: Quite. I didn’t look it up, but I’m fairly certain there’s a horror story incorporated into each episode. What can I say? I thought the show was pretty spectacular.
D: Oh well that is simply fascinating (yawn). So I’ll just wander on off –
D: Oh my gods, what was that?!
A: Hm. Sorry. Dragon.
D: . . . . ?
A: I can’t talk well, but he certainly can.
D: Indeed – he launches it pretty well too. I think he singed my cloak.
A: Indeed! (Grin) ‘Night, D.
D: Do I need to be concerned about the Dragon, A?
A: I don’t know what you’re talking about, D – now if you’ll excuse me?
D: No, I don’t think we’re done discussing the Dragon, A. A? A, come back here! Bloody woman!
This is the seventh in a series on my own brand of NaNoWriMo – or rather, my Non-NaNo. Gotta love those dragons! And that sassy show. Stay tuned for what tomorrow will bring in our 30 days of NaNo.

You are an inspiration.
🙂 as are you!
I’ll have to give Spaced another shot. I came across in on Netflix and as I love all things Simon Pegg I thought I’d check it out, but I could never get into it.
Ah… here there be Dragons. Isn’t that what Americans have written on maps north of (roughly) the 42nd parallel?
I had the benefit(?) of watching the second season first, which I think, is better and faintly less awkward.
There be dragons everywhere (which is good only if said dragons are voiced by Mr. Cucumberpatch.)
“Seven shows a-sassing” Why am I all of a sudden thinking of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers? I don’t know, must be the snow we’re getting that’s changing the electromagnetic pull in my brain! 😀
I have never seen that, but I’ve heard of it because my childhood crush (one of them, anyway), Richard Dean Anderson, in it. Secondly, snow. Noooooo!! 🙂
So much fun!
🙂 It makes me happy! Well, that and scaring D with dragons. . . and sparkly things (not vampires) . . . I think actually, lots of things manage to make me happy! 🙂
Really looking forward to Smaug. Like Gollum with the first movie, he’ll be worth my admission.
I’m thinking so, too. Although the song makes me think that the end is going to be a bit somber (as it should be given what happens, but still). I’m probably going to be cursing out Peter Jackson on December 28. That’ll be a fun recap post! 🙂
I won’t give him the satisfaction of my swear word vocabulary. The elves at Helm’s Deep is still a sore subject for me.
