Gobble, Gobble, It's Monday!

Happy Monday!  If you’re in the US, then happy almost Thanksgiving as well.  Nothing exciting in these parts aside from the fact I got a kitten last weekend. I know, I’m insane, but eh.  If I can’t be the crazy cat lady then I don’t wanna play this game.  :D  But on a more serious note, how did last week treat you?



1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: lint roller.  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 63%!  How are you doing?  I’m ahead for a change and it feels nice.  If you’re behind, there’s still plenty of month left, so don’t stress it.

agdhani – 31,500
asphaltcowgrrl – 9,450
simplyn2deep – 2.520
sharpiesgal – 3,780
cmk418 – 31,500

Signups for November are here!  Come join us, it’s fun!  The Daily Count challenge is here if you want to see when you’re up next.

4. November’s challenge is NaNo!  You can check out the encouragement posts as well as some inspirational posts here.

I’m looking forward to a short week this week.  One boss is in New Zealand, another boss will be bailing as early as possible on Wednesday to head to his cabin, and the third, well, he’s always a bit of a wild card.  Haha.  But, I’m hoping for a good writing week.  What do you have planned to be awesome this week?

I'm ahead of the game because of the boys...lol

Surviving this week is my plan. I despise last minute shoppers, self-entitled shoppers and general all around assclowns. Yes, yesterday was truly sucky.

Off tomorrow, so hopefully I can get a story idea pinned down and written. :)

Nice! I'll make sure to give them a cookie later for cooperating. :D

Ugh. I do not miss those days at all. While I try not to be a last-minute shopper, sometimes it happens. But there's never any reason to be a jerk to someone. Sorry to hear yesterday was so rough, hopefully the rest of the week is better. I know, I know, but I can hope for you, right?

SCORE! Enjoy your day off and good luck with the plot bunny.

I'm lucky to have the week off (and the vacation days stored up to get paid for it, lol)
I'm ahead a little...37.5k...and would honestly like to hit 40 today if I can stop with the research and distractions (and the back pain :/ )
got some crafting to do one day this week...put up the outside decorations...but other than that, its just write. Oh...and maybe prep Christmas cards too...I don't do many anymore, so it should not take overly long ;)

That's wonderful you have the day off! My kid that's still in high school is off this week, too. Argh, sorry about the back pain! It's cooling off here, so I'm dealing with some stiffness, but it's not unbearable at least.

Awesome, good luck hitting 40k!

Yeah, I pretty much have no friends and I think I'm mailing like three cards this year. Hahaha.

I just finished a knitting project (well, except for the crochet work to finish the edges) ..... and I believe I'm going to try a new policy for the rest of the month: No knitting and no TV on until there are words. I am hopeful of pulling this month off after all!

PS: What a face your new kitty has! She looks like a painting of a cat. :) Very pretty.

Congrats on finishing the knitting project! Ah, I hope the policy works out, too. You can pull this month off!

Aw, thanks. She's a little devil, but our other cat is finally starting to tolerate her, so that's a win.

Woo! I'm a bit ahead of the game.
