Happy Monday!

Holy moly, how is tomorrow the first day of September already?  Yikes.  Too bad that doesn’t mean fall is on its way here, we’ll have to wait another few weeks for that.  It’s a desert life, what can I say?


1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: chess.  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 is at 100%!  What kind of month did you have?  Thankfully, I passed my goal, but I didn’t quite get where I wanted to either.  But that’s okay, there’s always next month, right?

asphaltcowgrrl – 15,000                                                                                                                   
agdhani – 60,000/60 hrs.
cmk418 – 1,000
bizarra –   10,000
skargasm – 15,000
thatwasjustadream – 10,000
flipflop_diva – 16,000
jennytork – 6,200
angelus2hot – 5,000

September’s post is here, it’s a brand new month so come join us!

4. The Daily Count challenge signup is here.  I haven’t seen a schedule posted yet (as of Sunday afternoon when I am writing this), so there might still be time to sign up.

5. I’m not sure what our current monthly challenge is yet, but there’s plenty of great prompts for the pool party!  You can find the prompts here and they ought to keep you busy until the next challenge is posted.

That’s it from me today.  Hope you are all doing good and are as healthy as can be.  Comment and let us know what your plans are for the week and how you’re handling all the craziness that 2020 has thought to throw at us so far.

No plans for this week other than work, hockey watching, and some reading and writing. I've only got one kink bingo prompt yet and it's a free space so I have to figure out which kink it's going to go with- I've got it planned out a bit and it may go under a couple of different things. Decisions, decisions.

I did extremely well on my goal this month mainly because a lot of the teams I like were eliminated from the playoffs already so I didn't feel a need to watch all the games in the second round.

We seem to be heading into fall here. I think 82 might be the high this week. Which is good for everyone not working for an HVAC company, I suppose. I'll be bringing some reading material into the office this week.

Hope everyone is doing well. Happy writing!

Enjoy your hockey and good luck with your bingo card. Hahaha... the free spots get me, too, because what do you choose?

I'm sorry that so many of your teams were eliminated, but hooray for hitting your goal!

Ugh, it's warmer than 82 here now and it's not quite 8:30 yet. :) Enjoy the nicer weather though while you can. Yeah, it really sucks when your business is so heavily reliant on the seasons.

We're good at the moment and I'm working on something again finally, so hooray! :)

AND - because of your poking, I wrote fic!!! So I did, in fact, make my goal for the month.

My plans for the week... are to get through the week. Boss needs to be working on a roof, and at the beach with is family, and here for a day chock full of interviews on Wednesday. It's going to be a stressful week!

Thank you for all your help with the pool party! September is going to be wonderful!
Aug. 31st, 2020 03:32 pm (UTC)
Right back atcha!

Hooray! And a great fic it was, too! That's awesome, I'm glad I was able to encourage you into getting some words done.

Ugh, I'm sorry. I know it's been a rough few for you lately. Hoping that it all goes as well as it can be.

Anytime, I'm here to help. September is going to be great!

Congrats on the words! Did you post? What fandom? I am so behind on all things writing and fandomy... had hoped to do icons for the pool party at least, but didn't make it, of course. *sigh*

Maybe the drabble/icon challenge will inspire me to get to work!
Sep. 1st, 2020 08:25 pm (UTC)
It's all good! I did post for a movie called 6 Underground. It's on Netflix so I don't know if you have access to it. It's got Ryan Reynolds and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo. I've seen it far too many times.

And I'm already into the drabble challenge! This is more than I've written in ages!!!
Sep. 1st, 2020 08:31 pm (UTC)
WOOT! I have heard of it, the hubby has watched but I have not. I should, probably, by the sound of it!

WOOHOO! I am so happy for you! I need to get into something for the new challenge too - I'm thinking Umbrella Academy... I just watched S2 and I loved it!
Sep. 2nd, 2020 03:34 pm (UTC)
I have a thing for the one of the actors, and he's not blond so you may enjoy....

GO WRITE THEM! YOU CAN DO IT. It's just drabbles after all!
Sep. 2nd, 2020 03:37 pm (UTC)
This made me laugh because I'm not generally fond of blonds either. Val Kilmer and Warren Kole being my sole exceptions. :D
Sep. 2nd, 2020 03:50 pm (UTC)
I like to think I'm more equal opportunity with the pretty. ;)
Sep. 2nd, 2020 03:56 pm (UTC)
Hahaha... I can definitely appreciate a pretty person no matter the hair color, but I tend to be attracted to either Latino/Hispanic men or gingers. Yanno, because I have to hit both ends of the spectrum, right?
Sep. 3rd, 2020 03:43 am (UTC)
And my first reaction was: Val Kilmer is blond???? I forgot Iceman. LOL
Sep. 3rd, 2020 03:56 pm (UTC)
HAHAHA! For some reason, I always think about him in Real Genius, as that's one of my faves. he's really young and blond there. But he looks better with the dark hair a la Doc Holliday.
Sep. 3rd, 2020 03:44 am (UTC)
Now I need to know which actor you mean! :)
Sep. 3rd, 2020 02:56 pm (UTC)
I think you'll spot him. ;)

YOU ARE AWESOME! (To repeat K's words.)

As for me, sigh, I am getting nowhere making words, though I have been knitting, and am currently crocheting an infinity scarf (like I need more, but it's so pretty!). That is my creativeness for now and I'll take it.

This week I intend to actually make it to the hairdressers (put off by two lock-downs in which they weren't open) since I haven't had a tidy-up since January, and I'll get more yarn for the scarf the same night, and beyond that, just making it to the weekend will be good. ;-)

Sep. 2nd, 2020 08:43 pm (UTC)
Aw, shucks. :)

Knitting is good though! As long as you're happy, it's good.

I won't even tell you how long it's been since I've had a haircut, you'd probably pass out. And I agree, getting to the weekend this week is already looking like a challenge. You can do it though!
Sep. 3rd, 2020 03:47 am (UTC)
HA! I know some people never get their haircut, but mine is just this side of annoying most of the time so I'm usually around the 8 weeks to 3 months mark. I've been holding it back with a hairband on good days and in a hair tie on bad days (now the fringe is just about long enough) so I desperately need a treat (and that's where the colour comes in!). ;-)

Thank you - after today I was beginning to wonder if I would make it to the weekend, but tomorrow's Friday, so here's hoping...
Sep. 3rd, 2020 03:54 pm (UTC)
It's more that every time I realize it's been awhile, something comes up. One of the girls needed something or whatever. But I really need at least a trim if nothing else. Good for you for treating yourself though. You deserve it!

Yay! It's only Thursday here, but that's close enough. I can make it. :)
