Happy Halloween!  
I hope you're enjoying yourselves, and going at the candy already. :D

Still hoping to do Halloween sightseeing tonight with my son. It's raining right now, so maybe it'll be done for awhile when it gets dark?

HalfshellHusband is busy trying to fix burned-out fuses in the kitchen, and more dead fuses are resulting. Our house bears some of the marks of the previous owner's use of a manic handyman rather than an electrician, and I think HSH may have stumbled onto one of them. :O

I got my Yuletide assignment. \o? Three fandoms, only one of which I've ever written for (the hardest of my offers, sad to say). No characters. No prompts. No profile info on the requester at LJ, Dreamwidth, or AO3. The mods are trying to see if they can get a little more information from the submitter, and I hope they do. I would think this was a sock-puppet user, but who would go to all that trouble as a sock-puppet?

So, thus far no ideas for Yuletide yet or for the next Idol prompt (the dreaded Open Topic). The final people in from Last Chance Idol must really be rolling their eyes, as they just _did_ an Open Topic.

Back to storm-braining on code (which is not behaving), my Idol topic, and then later... a bike ride in the garage with S7 of House, M.D. for company. This weekend? Writing, a Ducks' football game tomorrow, and the joy that is the California Voters' Guide in there somewhere...

Oh, and... WTF happened with the posting page? The style's changed again. :(

I don't know, the lights refusing to turn on on Halloween sounds a little worrisome to me. Isn't that Scene 1 of most horror flicks? :D

I hope it stops raining for you guys! It was pouring up here this morning, but now it's very clear.

Strange about your YT recip. Maybe a lurker who signed up at the last minute and didn't have time to add details about herself/make up prompts?

I lucked out with two fandoms I can write in, but still need to write my letter. Oh, and I joined the pinch-hit list! Should be really fun!

Haha! Actually, it's the outlets that aren't working, on half the kitchen. Not very scary, just inconvenient!

I'm thinking the person may have joined late, or is new to Yuletide. I hope. But I sure want more than just Fandom 1, Fandom 2, Fandom 3 as prompts. :O

Glad you're on the pinch-hit list! That's been a lot of fun, and I can almost guarantee some Broadchurch will go by plus other things you like. :)

I hate Open Topic. I bet it's Gatekeepers, too. Either that or he's going to try to trick us into thinking it is and then they will actually be next week. Blargh.

That's the feeling I'm getting-- that it might be a Gatekeeper round.

The major fear is, "Will I get a good idea and write it before the deadline?" Because Open Topic is all the vague...

I hate open topic with a passion, but at least I got inspired this week. :)

For some reason it's making me think of "Finding Nemo" - like "Finding Open (topic)"

If it results in a cheerful, amnesiac fish then I am all for it!

Also irritable crabs and "Mine! Mine! Mine!" seagulls (or was that last part a different movie?)

Well my entry this week is a bit of a tear jerker, but it's where my head was. But the Mine Mibe Mibe seagulls was indeed from Finding Nemo.

We had a rain out for most of trick or treat. Bummer. AW

I don't think ours got worse than sprinkling, but it shut down a lot of trick-or-treaters. I don't think I hit my quota of cute, clueless little kids in costumes this year. :)
