Hey, all!

I remembered I forgot to pass this along last night, shortly after turning my computer off for the evening. *facepalm*

Only got about 800 words in, but I have to admit the creative mojo is SHOT, this week. I blame work

Here's to me accomplishing all the things I need to, this weekend (and not logging in to WoW) and, to galadriel34: MAKE GREAT THINGS! :)

Weekend Challenge - Great Star Trek Quotes

Hello my lovelies! I am your hostess for this weekend's challenge. And in honor of the opening of the new Star Trek movie, I have complied a list of Star Trek quotes from The Original Series, Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager. (The site I "borrowed" these quotes from didn't have any from Enterprise. I can't say why???) The quotes will include who is being quoted and the episode title from which the quote is taken. Don't know if this is important but it's on my list so I'll provide them to you.

Your mission (which is not a five year mission) is to request as many quotes from as many iterations of Star Trek as suits your fancy. This list of quotes available for your inspiration are as follows:

Original Series - 31 quotes

The Next Generation - 95 quotes

Deep Space Nine - 37 quotes

Voyager - 43 quotes

Soo..... if you want to play, provide me the show or shows, and the number or numbers of the quote you would like. For instance, you could request TNG - #33, and DS9 - #4 and #8. Makes sense? There's no limit to the number of quotes/shows you can request. I know everyone isn't a Star Trek fan, but I'm pretty sure there are quotes that will inspire those who would not necessarily sign up for the five year mission to go where no words have gone before.

Request away!!!

Let's Get Ready To BINGO!!!

As our fearless leader kaige68 noted in her recent post, she and her accomplices haldoor and Dreamy are going on vacation in September - together! Not sure the state of Hawaii is ready for them but we'll have to take it on faith that the islands will still be above water once they finish partying with their bad selves.

While they are away, I've been tasked with running a Bingo game to amuse and occupy the faithful, fabulous, fun-loving members of this community. Yay Bingo!!!! Yay 1_million_words!!!

What I'd like from you, my fellow travelers, are 1) types of cards to create (for instance - smut, vacations, hurt/comfort), and 2) writing prompts for any or all types of cards you can think of. These need to be necessarily short in order to fit into a Bingo square.

Also, if you'd like to help create the cards, leave me a comment and I'll get back to you with my cry for help in early August, I hope.

I'm screening the comments so the cards will be something of a surprise when they are ready. And if you have anything more in depth you'd like to discuss about the cards, BINGO, or life in general, you are always welcome to PM me, or email me at tkeylasunset@yahoo.com.

Thanks in advance for all your help!!! We rock the most!

Happy birthday to dracosdreamer!

In which, you learn that starry_wolf is apparently incapable of reading, and managed to mix up dracosdreamer with thtwzjustadream (the former is 20th July, the latter 21st; both ended up getting shortened to Dreamy in my head >.>)

Happy belated birthday, dracosdreamer! I hope you had a great day yesterday, and may you get more gifts over the upcoming weekend!
