269 images of cats will be added to the collection if every participant gets two gifts before author/artist reveals. If you would like to contribute cat images then you can email them to me at halloweenmod@gmail.com and include if you would like to be credited in the notes and if so, under what name.

I went downtown yesterday early enough to have time to return things to the library and to pick up my holds. I had a little more than forty minutes before the bus I needed to take to get to Skyline. I got out to the school about fifteen minutes before the final bell. Cordelia was a little worried about where to meet because I wanted to give her geometry teacher some Puffs as a donation (the district no longer provides tissues for teachers to put out for the kids who have colds/allergies).

The fundraiser stuff was in two smallish boxes, one of which only contained a beef sausage thingy and so didn't weigh very much. I told the cab dispatcher where we'd be waiting, but he neglected to tell the cabbie. Fortunately, he guessed the front entrance, and we'd positioned ourselves where we could see cars on both loops approaching that (there's one for buses and one for parents dropping off/picking up, but when there aren't buses there, cars can use either).

We had friends over to play games last night. We played a cooperative game called Star Trek Five Year Mission that Scott's planning to run at UCon. We missed a lot of details the first time through. I didn't play the second game because they wanted to do the timed version. I didn't want to deal with that. Instead, I took a short walk and recaptured the Ingress portal down the street. I managed to get a silver (second level out of five) badge for making fields.

I had intended to go out this morning, but Scott's sister texted me with an invitation for Cordelia to go out to a concert this evening, and I spent quite a long time trying to coordinate that (including reaching Cordelia to make sure she even wanted to go). I can only assume that my niece intended to take a friend and had that friend cancel at the last minute. I didn't ask.

I've written 1200 words today, just not on any of my established WIP. Because I needed a new, half completed story. Really, I did.

I stumbled on this and I thought it would be of interest to some people here: a gay Chinese artist who makes erotic paper cuttings (not exactly porn but very NSFW).

Also, fandom charity [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico has opened for bidding, if anyone is interested; the money goes towards long-term rebuilding of Puerto Rico. I am offering to write one longer fic and two shorter fics, but there are also plenty of other awesome writers and artists participating.

The research thing I have to do is inching along; I sent a second draft to my advisor after adding a couple of pages to the introduction like he asked me to, and a couple of faculty members have agreed to be on my mini-committee, but I have yet to hear back from my advisor. Which is understandable, he's a busy person and he's been out a lot lately and has probably yet to catch back up on his email, so I'll give him a few more days before I ping him.

(...I also still haven't received any email from my research group, so not sure what is going on there.)

It is starting to cool off here. I think I might pull up my pepper plants in the next day or two; I don't think I'm going to get any more fruit off them before the frost hits, and to be honest, these plants have been disappointments anyway. I don't know if it was the variety or if I neglected them a little too much or what; they only gave me a couple fruits each at best, and most of them were tiny. Like, I knew the lady who sold them to me said small, but these are 'can literally fit in your mouth in one easy bite' small and not that tasty. (Except for the one long one, which never changed color to ripen.) Next year I'm just getting bell peppers again. The eggplants have been great, and so have the basil. I'm also not getting another lemon mint next year, it turns out I don't like the way it tastes that much - I might replace it with a chocolate mint, that sounds interesting.

I have not made much progress on reading Genji, but that's because three books I preordered are coming out this month. So far, I have finished one (Turtles All the Way Down), am in the middle of another (Soonish), and am waiting on a third (The Writing in the Stone, an ancient Assyrian horror story). Plus I need to do reading for research again. Should go do some of that now before I head to foreign language club.

This is a little something I wrote a long time ago after reading 'If You Give A Moose A Muffin'. So, I decided to use it as a fun run up to Gundam Wing Month.

Content Notes: Created for Inktober - Day 17, word prompt: Graceful. This is my very first attempt at using India Ink with a paintbrush. I found the following video on YouTube to be particularly helpful: How to Draw and Paint Animals with Water: Ink Drip Technique.

The ink drip technique is SO COOL! I only have black ink right now, but would love to get my hands on other colours. So in addition to the original piece, I've also included a digital blue-tinted version below, which I rather like. :)

So today I got in my car and started it up to go to work and as I'm driving down the street I realize immediately something's wrong. So I turn around and get back home and lo and behold, I have a completely flat tire. I'd just looked at my tires last night because I've had a slow leak in one, but apparently the leak decided to go ahead and be a fast leak.

So I take the tire off and put the donut on, with plans to drive to Wal-Mart and replace it. Off my mom and I go (because I'd not cashed my check yet, I needed her to pay for the tire and I was going to pay her back) and as I'm driving, something terrible goes wrong. The donut goes completely flat and kind of falling apart???? So I turn into this abandoned looking parking lot and call my sister and tell her what's going on and she tells me she'll come get us.

So we're waiting and this old pickup truck pulled in and this little old man with missing teeth and long hair steps out and was like "y'all got yerselves a flat?" which yeah, and he sees the wheel in the truck of the jeep and was like "I can take yer tire down there to the shop, they got free air there." And I was like shit, yeah, cool, so away he goes with my tire and I go ahead and take the donut off and this other little old man comes walking up and is like "looks like y'all got a flat tire" and tells us he has an air compressor if we need some air so we tell him about the first little old man who came and of course the second old man knows the first old man.

And then this big fancy pickup truck pulls up and in it is another old man who asks if we need help and I tell him that someone else is helping but thanks so much and away he goes.

Anyway the first old man comes back with the tire and then he takes the donut to get air and I put the tire back on (it's hissing and we see a damn nail in it, which is the cause of all the trouble) and follow him to the store where he's putting air in it.

After that, Mom and I head to wal-mart to actually replace the tire because it can't be repaired (the nail is too close to the tire wall, if I repair it it could just burst). We end up hanging around there for an hour and a half waiting for it to be replaced.

Now I'm about to head to my therapy session hahahaHAHAHA.

(But it was very cool that so many people stopped to help)
