Preparing for the marathon

If I ever go postal, and decide to torture my victims helplessly while kicking ass in a wholesale slaughter, I can't decide if I want to play, Goldfrapp's "Strict Machine (We Are Glitter Mix)," or Thomas Newman's "To The Shock Of Miss Louise." The first has a dark steel-tipped Doc Marten's kicking-and-stomping mosh dancing quality to it, almost like the Axe Gang opening Scene in "Kung Fu Hustle." My minions would be a troupe of short goth girls with big hair, glowing green eyes, iPods, and armed with sickles that swing from overly-long arms with striped arm wraps. The other has a psychotic haunted circus quality, and my minions would look like undead medieval parade clowns armed with jagged knives and spears.

The NaNoWriMo wings are flexing. Exciting things are afoot.

NB: I was going to have a character named Cinniúint Slánaitheoir, but I couldn't pronounce it, and it certainly didn't make a good girl's name. I really wonder how many of you could translate that, anyway. Maybe I can change it to Sienna/Cynthia Slanather...
