Happy new year! (Ook!)

It is the year of the Monkey in the Chinese (and most other Asian cultures from casual research) calendar. Happy new year and a special imaginary red envelope to any Monkeys out there. (Or any Monkees, they had some good songs.)

If you need some topical inspiration, the Google Doodle of the day leads to some fun and informative links on the traditions of the Lunar New Year.

And so it's Monday again.

*yawn* Which do you suppose is louder? The dog that is barking at 5AM, or the woman who is trying to shut him up? My poor neighbors.

I had a pretty good week last week. I finally managed some words yesterday, so that was awesome, and I bought my plane tickets for my upcoming vacation. Which is of note because it has been over twelve years since I had a 'go somewhere' vacation. It's exciting that it's close enough to count, but... grrr It's still 7 months away. So anyway, yeah, I spent yesterday morning getting caught up on my words for the month! I'm feeling ahead of the game for the next day or so.

This week, well I hope to get more words done, there are a couple of weekend challenges I need to catch up on, and thanks to a MASSIVE GROUP EFFORT we have Bingo Cards. So there are all kinds of creative projects to do!

I am so enamored of this Comm! Someone puts up a 'hi, I need help' and people come out of the woodwork to offer, to support, or to even just give internet *hugs*. Someone says 'hi, i did a thing' and again the woodwork opens up with congratulations and happy dances. This is such a beautiful thing! I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR! I hope you all know how awesome you are!

I'm going to go finish my coffee and peruse the Bingo Cards. What are you all up to this week?

Finally, BINGO cards are here!

Hi everyone! It's the post you've all been waiting for! Bingo cards are here! See this post for all the rules for Bingo, but feel free to ask any questions here if you're not sure about anything (or PM or email me; email address is in the other post).

Thank you to erinm_4600, craterdweller, fairyniamh and agdhani for making all the wonderful cards you see here (apart from one set made by yours truly! ;-P ) Didn't they all do fantastically? Thanks again; I really appreciate that you all came through so very quickly when we had a set-back. I hope you're feeling better soon, kahuna_burger!

And onwards, to the cards!

Let us know here which card/s you're going to fill, and go forth and create! Any number of people can choose the same cards, but it would be nice to see all of the cards in play, so have a look at what others have chosen and see if you can do something different first.

Remember you have until the 8th March to have your prompts completed and posted/linked here at the comm! Have fun! ;-)

Note: some of the Fluff & Fusion cards are not showing up for me, but there's no reason why they shouldn't be - they're all hosted at the same Photobucket site. If any of you have issues seeing them, please let me know and I'll upload them to another site. Thanks! Have now rehosted all the Fluff & Fusion ones at my own Photobucket - hopefully they show up now, but as before if you have any issues seeing anything, let me know!

Passing the Daily Count Challenge to flipflop_diva

It was already half past ten at night here when I noticed I'd been tagged, and I'd just spent the evening messing around not doing anything useful... Having the Daily Count Challenge was just the push I needed to sit down and write, so thank you for that thtwzjustadream! I only managed 360 words, but that's 360 more than I would have done otherwise.

Passing the torch to flipflop_diva now!
