Yet Another Catch-Up Post

1. THE GIANTS WON THE WORLD SERIES OHHHHH YEAH. After two of the most stressful and exciting playoff series I can possibly imagine -- you should have seen me jumping up and down on the couch when they came back from 0-2 to beat the Reds in the NLDS, and Barry Zito's start in Game 5 of the NLCS to shift the momentum against the Cardinals was a thing of beauty -- the sweep of Detroit was almost anti-climactic, but I will take it. :D :D :D The parade is tomorrow and I am really excited to go.

2. My road trip was awesome, even though I did get rained on for most of it. The California and Oregon coasts are outrageously beautiful, the drive went well, and I really enjoyed getting to sit down with fandom people and college friends and hang out. Pictures and daily check-ins can be found on Tumblr; unfortunately I didn't get many nature photographs because it was too cold and rainy to stop much along the drive. Still worth it, though.

3. November is coming! After some hemming and hawing, and encouragement from [personal profile] seimaisin, I've decided to do NaBloWriMo yet again, because anything that gets me writing in my journal is a good thing. Also on her suggestion, I've signed up for [livejournal.com profile] wrisomifu, which commits me to writing at least 10 minutes every day next month. Good encouragement both for the journaling and for [livejournal.com profile] dragonagebb, for which I have a rough draft due at the beginning of December, eek!

That's about it for me. How are you?

I'm also doing NaBloWriMo while trying to see if it is possible to complete my DABB story. October was too chaotic so... hard to say where my DABB story will end up? I'll finish it one way or another but perhaps not for DABB. TBD...

Have fun at the Giants parade!
