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 wrisomifu, which commits me to writing at least 10 minutes every day next month. Good encouragement both for the journaling and for dragonagebb, for which I have a rough draft due at the beginning of December, eek!

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

My Tigers are dead to me. What an embarrassment.

Congrats! I'm glad that you were able to catch all the games while roving (not that I thought you'd miss any.)

I honestly appreciate that you are a Giants fan, so I can feel a bit of, "Oh, good, that'll make KJ's day."

i should really sign up for wrisomifu, as my goal for November is to Finish LHAD, comma, dammit, once amd for all!

I actually missed several games, notably game 7 of the NLCS, which I wasn't even able to effectively follow online because the net connection was so bad in my hotel, and there was no television. But I got to see at least part of everything else except WS Game 3, and the amazingness that was the comeback against the Reds, and Barry Zito in the NLCS. I solemnly swear I will never complain about the Zito contract ever, ever, ever again.

Also, aw. Thanks. :)

And yes, you should! Come on over. There's links to the signup posts in the userinfo.
