I love my hand!

(no subject)

*pokes Pittsburgh people*
Hey, does anyone know of any good Indian places by the Pittsburgh airport? Or anywhere between there and 79 North? All the Indian places I know of are in Oakland or Monroeville, and I'm not too familiar with the airport-ish area. You see, that "bribe" meme came in handy, and Rose had the brilliant idea to bribe me with Indian food AND yarn if I'd pick her up from the airport this weekend... with a bribe like that, how could I say no? Therefore, I'm looking for an Indian place in that area. And I think Nick will cry if I eat Indian food without him again, so he'll probably have to come too.

In other news, today I learned that while my editing/critiquing skills are good, I seem to pass over word repetitions. So now I must train myself to SEARCH AND DESTROY (or at least change). I'll just have to make sure I don't get too obsessive (ohnoooooo, I used "the" six times in this paragraph!). Also, I wonder if rubbing exlax into my scalp and fingers would make me actually write down all the scenes formulating in my head, because they're getting all blocked up in there and need to get out. I think the real solution would be for me to go somewhere boring with paper and a pencil and just write it all out (typing scenes makes me too obsessed with editing to get the story out). But meh. Still, I wonder if anything exciting would happen if I rubbed exlax into my scalp. Probably not, other than people asking, "OMG, WTF is that in your hair?!?!?!" And then I wouldn't be able to say "exlax" without cracking up, because I have issues. Also, I'm realizing there's really no "villain" in the story I'm writing. This isn't necessarily a problem, but I love villains. They're just fun. Well, I wanted to somehow work Loki into the story (as a friend of the main character, not an antagonist), but I've realized he's just not going to fit. Oh well. Pardon the rambling, as most of you have no idea what I'm talking about and probably don't care either.
