OMG! October Challenge! HALP!

Your slacker mod has been more slack than usual! It's almost time for October Challenge and I am far from organised!!!

So it's another Bingo and I have not done anything... tkeylasunset was going to be your host, but she has had something call her away from us (good for her, but not so for us, unfortch!), so it's down to me and anyone else I can rope in to get this up and running! So, who's in? Anyone able to help make cards, do posts and/or just offer up categories and prompts?

Anyhoo, let's make this post count... I'll add some comments for you to reply to with the appropriate things, and I'll pop up another post for prompts as soon as we sort out categories!
