It's Monday Again!

So, we meet again, Monday.  How has December been treating you all?  It’s been very mild weather-wise here in the desert southwest, which I am forever grateful for because I hate being cold.


1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: mistletoe.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration. 

2. Last week’s challenges:

3. Big Buddy 32%!  How are you doing?  I’m straggling a bit so far this month, but I can get caught up.

Signups for December are here!  Come join us, it’s fun!  The Daily Count challenge is here if you want to see when you’re up next.  (P. S. Let me know if I goofed on big buddy… my brain isn’t quite functioning at the moment.)

4. December’s challenge is Advent!  You can check out all the amazing artwork being posted at the tag, here.

Man, I still can’t believe we’re nearing the end of the year.  So much has happened in 2018, both personally and otherwise, that I’m both happy and sad to see 2019 on the horizon.  Let us know how you plan to be awesome this week so we can celebrate and encourage together!

Advent Day 10 - American Horror Story

Happy Monday, everyone! Today, I bring you one of two posts (seven fandoms in five days, you see...)

I have never watched American Horror Story.. partly because bizarra told me not to, but also because it's not really my kind of genre. But mostly because Biz told me not to.

Anyway, I hope I picked a random mix of images for you :D

Happy Advent, everyone!

Advent Day 10 - Maze Runner

And the second of two posts for today: The Maze Runner trilogy

This one I actually know, having watched each of the movies in one afternoon-binge. I've got the books on deck, to get the full 'verse (but I may not have found enough of them? Fans: are there five or six?)

Happy Advent, everyone!
