June Bingo idea...

Hi, all - hope May is treating you well! I am working on our June Bingo cards - and while I have a plan, I did also have one thought that might be fun to try out: If you have a particular fandom and/or pairing or characters you'd like to suggest, I can try making you up a couple of semi-custom cards.

Please feel free to comment here with any combo of the above- characters, pairings, fandoms - and I'll see what I can do. Also, let me know if there are any topics or genres (from hurt/comfort to dark!fic to fluff) that are a no-go for you.

Of course, there will be a bunch of cards in some familiar categories, but the idea just struck me, so... feel free to comment here if interested!

So I'm going to call the 1,416 I just managed to squeeze out in a hour's time after FINALLY getting my butt up and going a win and hope for more and longer words tomorrow!

If ever a day needed coffee, it's Monday

awesome Monday.jpg

The last time I posted on a Monday I was whining about snow. So clearly, it's been a few weeks. A big Thank You to asphaltcowgrrl for picking up after me. You are awesome sweetie.

In personal stories, and you may have already heard this elsewhere, I am turning 50 this year and while complaining about not knowing what big thing I should do to celebrate, haldoor said "Hey, why don't we meet you in Las Vegas?!?" And so I'm traveling west this fall! It's exciting and intimidating and feels like it's scheduled for next year and several years from now all at once! And we're going to see Bryce Canyon which has been on my bucket list since before I knew what the term 'bucket list' was.

How are you all doing? What are your big plans? And on to the stuff!

1 – FLASH CHALLLENGE – Your amazing Monday prompt is - Crazy road side attractions Give me 100 words or a graphic for the fabulous sake of saying you’ve done it! I once went to see a 'dinosaur museum' which turned out to be watching a video in someone's converted garage and then climbing on the shale rock in their back yard looking a actual fossils! It was tacky and cool all at once!

Weekend Challenge: To Bodly Go

Greetings, Campers!

I was torn between giving you a collection of potentially-spoiler and most definitely-NSFW Deadpool quotes (inspired entirely by seeing both Deadpool and Deadpool 2 at the theater, last night).. and going the safe route.

I chose to go the safe route. mostly because I'm at work....

SO! I have a list of 50 "inspiring" quotes from Star Trek to offer you.

Your task is to give me a number (or more) between 1-50, and you'll be on your way to boldly go into that creative space!

Rewards will be icon-sized, sigtag-sized, fawning, cheerleading... or even a short drabble from a fandom we share. we'll work out the details of that, later


Say What Friday

Hello lovelies. Welcome another Friday, and hooray we survived another week.

Big Buddy is checking in today, so I hope the creating is going well.

Wilson Misner

Do with it what you will.
