Also, once sign-ups close, I’ll start a poll with all the fandoms (after all the edits) I’ve offered, just like I did last year, so I can find a beta reader in that fandom without revealing anything.

I came up with two Yuletide prompts for what I want to request when sign-ups officially start--so far, though, nobody has nominated either The Superdictionary or Ghostbusters. So I’ll think of something else when the time comes, if that remains the case.

Dad’s Yahoo account was seemingly hacked earlier, and from what I can tell by looking it over with him, it was used to send out a large amount of spam and potential viruses to everyone he knows. The end result of this was a morning fielding several phone calls from relatives who were baffled and concerned by the wording of some of the gibberish, and wanting to know if he was okay. Mentally. Because the spelling was worse than usual.

Steven Franken has passed away, at the age of 80, as a result of cancer. May he rest in peace. If he’s who I’m thinking of, he played a warlock who was henpecked by his mother, and had a crush on Samantha on Bewitched. Where he also played five other characters. He was also in an episode of the Adam West version of Batman as a valet, and was the voice of someone in Batman: The Animated Series. His best remembered role would be as the rich and snobby Chatsworth Osborne Jr. on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, and for MST3K fans he ended up in Stranded In Space.

(Hey, someone wrote this for me one year, I’d love to see either of these, too.) So I may just end up nominating both, if I’m able and don’t have any other prompts. If it weren’t 1996 and therefore pre-season 1, I would agree with the comments to add Willow or Buffy.
