Yesterday was a slow day on the NaNoWriMo front, but I made up for it today. I slept in late today, despite the best efforts of telemarketers and campaigning officials. I’m sure that any moment I’m going to hit the limit of how many phone numbers I can block on my home phone system. I am so sick of the constant interruptions of automated phone calls from strangers for whom I am a demographic rather than a person. After this election is over, I’m going to start campaigning my state and federal representatives to introduce legislation to outlaw all telemarketing. This is insane. On the phone you can’t tell the criminals from the legit companies, and now all of them ignore the Do Not Call list. The only way to stop this is to make it illegal, close down all the telemarketers and force the phone companies to pull the numbers these assholes are using to intrude into the lives of honest citizens.

I’ll be honest. I would rather legalize prostitution and marijuana and fire all the people working at telemarketer call centers. I think a lot of people would agree with me, too. But this post isn’t supposed to be about politics, but about NaNoWriMo… [click to continue…]
