On the Road by Jack Kerouac

Man, what a ride. I finished up my last of seven (all over but the night terrors), and Jeanne pulls up within shouting distance of the finish line. Go, baby, go! And with a little perseverance, I truly believe everyone else could make it. Suck it up, buttercup, and go for the tarnished gold!

So, now, one month to go, and the question is: will there be a second? I am . . . undecided. My life has taken a turn for the busy lately, and I think I may have to cut back on posting for awhile. So, if there is a Critical Monkey II, it'll be less of an event. But we'll see.

But back to the main point here, one month to go! Don't let yourself down, finish this damnable thing.
