Bananarama  
Our son bought a new banana costume this year, since the "Adult Small" one no longer fits him. He was tempted by the "ear of corn" costume, but it's only sold online, and he waited until the day before Halloween to take action.

The new, improved banana suit has black seams on it and I expect it to last awhile. Sturdy enough so far—he wore it to school yesterday, and then to 24-Hour Fitness for his post-school workout. I am going to miss this weird, loopy kid so much when he goes off to college next year!

In other news, it's November 1st and I am doing mini_wrimo this year for the first time in ages. So, gather me my prompts while I may, to keep from running into a dry spell! Yes, even for my minimalist 100-words/day goal.

The other challenge, which I've experienced in just the last 1 1/2 weeks, will be staying awake after 9:30 or 10:00. I'm a night owl by nature, and after summer things just keep humming along until some point in the Fall where I'm suddenly battling this snooze attack every night. I'm remembering now that I always run into this issue for mini_wrimo or any variant thereof, since they are all in November. So... write earlier?

But that involves planning. And free time. :O

Oh, darn. I failed on Day 1 in a past year because the Mod was a "do it first thing" person, and a few timezones ahead of me... and my computer was in a mood where it would randomly stop accessing the Internet at times, so I missed the late-night update. I think that ultimately turned out to be a side-effect of a virus on the PC, but either way... instant failure! On the plus side, there are now amnesty windows for doing latent updates, so you only fail if you don't write.

Which can also easily happen. ;)

That's so annoying. With me it's mainly just not taking mini-wrimo or Nano very seriously. Every year I say I'm going to give it more effort and then when it gets to it I'm just meh
