As a passing note as to how cluttered Nellie’s house was? Her daughter hired a cleaning crew. They’ve brought the back of a semi truck to cart things off, with extra dumpsters. They’ve been working almost non-stop (they took a break on Sunday afternoon) since Friday. They’ve hauled that thing away six times to the dump and back, and they’ve only made it into the living room. They get here at 7 AM every morning, and they don’t stop until 6 PM.

Fandom Brainstorming For Yuletide 2012. Nominations begin later this month. I’ve been planning my nominations for a few months now. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1996 will be in one of the three slots, since I’ve already come up with a prompt. If someone else nominates Ghostbusters and Dark Shadows (90’s version) then I won’t need to, and I can go for the original Fright Night. For the final nomination, it depends on which one of these people want to see end up on the list more: The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, Mr. Boogedy, The Librarian series of movies, Fred Saberhagen’s Dracula novels, Innocent Blood (1992), or The Mercury Men.

Looking through it now, I see almost all of the links are dead (a couple went to Geocities) and gone, several fanfic sites turned to dust, and at least one journal has been deleted and purged. I’m leaning towards rejecting this nomination due to the fact it wouldn’t be of any practical use to people these days, and is barely an overview.
