I finally managed to locate season 1 (season 2 is easily found on the WB’s website) of Pushing Daisies, and rewatched large chunks to refresh my memory. So I can place the series back into my fandom offerings for Yuletide.

So after the last of the reshuffling, the fandoms I’m offering (unless I trade out The Mummy for Indiana Jones again) are: Fright Night (1985), Back to the Future, The Mummy series, Ghostbusters, Pushing Daisies, Addams Family (1991). And the Bucket List includes: Van Helsing (2004), Mockingbird Lane, Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, Anno Dracula Series—Kim Newman, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1996, A Study In Emerald—Neil Gaiman, Mannequin, Soapdish (1991), Addams Family (tv 1964).

Just received word from Donna that we’ve hit the end of the road with Nellie and her pancreatic cancer. She’s in the hospital now, having refused hospice at home. Hospice is apparently (didn’t realize they did that in the hospital) just across the hall from her current room in the hospital, so they plan to move her over there.

Finally heard from Phillip (Mom’s brother)—where he’s at, Sandy didn’t dump too much. He’s currently just outside the zone where it would be, so he only received high winds. Meanwhile, all family in Louisiana are fine as of the last anyone heard, since it didn’t go there.

Next Year In Yuletide. Some people (like me) are already planning what they’ll nominate next year. I’m making a note to nominate the Fred Saberhagen Dracula novels.

In relation to this year’s Yuletide, I’ve just finished signing up—fandoms I’ve offered are: Fright Night (1985), Back to the Future, Pushing Daisies, Ghostbusters, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), Addams Family (1991)—with the fandoms tossed into the bucket section being Last Unicorn (1982), Van Helsing (2004), Mannequin (1987), Soapdish (1991), A Study in Emerald - Neil Gaiman, Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1996, Anno Dracula Series - Kim Newman.

I threw out Cabin in the Woods, since I wasn’t sure how well I’d be able to write for that one. If it turns out that I enjoy the pilot for Mockingbird Lane, then I’ll edit that in if I’m able.
