Taylor Swift

Weekend Challenge!

Happy Friday, folks!

This is my first shot at hosting so be gentle.  Or not, the choice is yours.  But beware, I have a crazy cowboy and an irritated redhead at my disposal should things get out of hand.

Your theme for this weekend are quotes from one of my favorite authors – Armistead Maupin, author of the infamous Tales of the City books, among other things.  I know H is a fan, but does anyone else know his work?  I found him in the strangest of ways - via a mention in a Stephen King novel.  I’ve been in love ever since.

Choose a number between 1 and 18 and I’ll hit you with a quote.  Give me 200 or more words by Sunday night at 11:59 PST and you’ve won these fabulous prizes… or, rather, you’ll win your choice of a handful of icons, a banner, a drabble, or I can add words to a WIP.  My PS skills are not very high caliber, but I shall do my best!  My list of fandoms is small, but if I know it, I'll give it a shot.

And because I can’t resist, I leave you with this:

And this was what bothered him about owning a VCR. If that cowboy was yours for the taking—yours at the flip of a switch—what was to stop you from abandoning human contact altogether?" ― Armistead Maupin, Significant Others

Bingo prompts please!

Alrighty! We had some great suggestions for Bingo categories, and I have made the decision to go with the following six suggestions:

Song Titles

So here's your chance to suggest prompts under the above categories! Throw them this way! I will screen the replies so we get some surprises when the cards are done. Prompts need to be in by 8am Sunday my time, which is... uh... 8pm Saturday GMT since we just went into daylight saving last weekend. I will leave you to sort out what time that is in your time zone, because it's Friday here and my brain doesn't want to go there. ;-)

Anyhoo, once the prompts are in, I will have my wonderful helpers assist me with cards, and a rules post will go up on Sunday evening my time, which is Sunday morning for most of you, yes, I speak to you from the future!!! and then we will kick OCTOBER 2017 BINGO off for real on Monday 2nd October!

Prompt away!
