Stormin' The Brain

I've got two Idol stories to write by Wednesday, and nothing's coming on the prompts (this was a "grab two, max of two writers" situation, not a "Yay, I totally love this!" kind of thing). I have One Hit Wonder and In The Bag, and any and all ideas are appreciated.

Still on vacation. We left Portland yesterday, with some great family time but I did not get to run at Tryon Creek again as planned—it was unexpectedly raining, and the trails get very slick when they're wet. We looked for alternate, indoor things to do but took a chance on Oaks Park anway (and it had stopped raining, so that worked out). But we considered an indoor blacklight miniature golf place with a pirate theme (a second alien-themed place opens in Beaverton this fall), and discovered something callled The Faux Museum. We may have to go next year—the TripAdvisor reviews cracked us up, and the website is about as intentionally vague as you can get.

HalfshellHusband's beloved Steampunk Lincoln t-shirt somehow suffered some random damage, so I'm ordering some replacements from Pegasus Publishing. For those of you who like Lovecraft and Cthulhu, there are a bunch of cute shirts on sale for about $9 - $12, like Bat-Thulu, and My Little Cthulhu, Maddeningly Cute Cthulhu, Hello Cthulhu, Horton Hears Cthulhu, and more. On other themes, also a Steampunk Dragon and an xkcd Science shirt. Get 'em while you can!

So, it's Friday, isn't it? What's on your weekend agenda?
