There were a few spreadsheet issues (*cough* someone apparently deleted a few formulas when cleaning out the spreadsheets for this year *Blush*) but "Mumsy's Dreidel Game Day One results [E] has been updated with the correct results, and all should work smoothly moving forward!

"Mumsy's Dreidel Game [ASR] starts tomorrow at sundown! There are still 6 spots that need to be filled at one of the tables. 1,000 GPs will get you a seat. I will spin the virtual dreidels between 5 and 6 PM WDC time, and at that time the game will be closed to new entries.

I just got a text from Superhero Medie , letting me know that she has arrived safely in New Jersey for her grandmother's funeral. She asked me to let everyone know.

Please keep her in your thoughts for the next few days, as she and her family say goodbye to a beloved family member, and mourn and heal together.

Thanks for the help, Hanukkah Mumzzzzzzzzz . Calling hours went well, although long and we were STARVING by the end (4-8 didn't work for eating dinner.) And the funeral service is this morning.

YOU ROCK! Congrats on getting to 50K. I am not too far behind you. Are you done or do you still have lots of story left to go? I know Darleen the Dark Elf has got to 50K but she has lots of story left to go. I will hit 50K soon but I have way more to go.

Thanks! *Delight* I have a lot more story left, but I need to slow down. We're heading out of town for Thanksgiving week, so I'm trying to stuff as many words in before then as possible.

Go Team Black! I'll try to keep an eye on the board.

Thanks, Cinnamon Fruitcake ! Bigsmile I traveled the last week of November, so my goal was to hit 50k before we left. I managed to squeak in another 3.5k in the first few days of traveling, but then things got crazy. Pthb

What a fun, odd, & totally San Francisco evening we just had! Saw 2 one act plays. The theme was Olympians & the playwrites were challenged to write plays with certain subjects. Tonight we had the battle of the eyes - Polyphemos versus Argus. Argus was hilarious! Then the audience got to vote for which they preferred, Ancient Greek style. Smile Except we used colored stones instead of ostraka - blue for yes, red for no. Argus won!

Now we're on BART ... and there's an old guy with a cart, a black garbage bag, & big green nets. Inside the bag are live crabs. He keeps trying to offer a crab to 1 woman but she doesn't have a bag. So he tried to put it in his mouth & it pinched him. So he dropped an f-bomb on it! *Laugh*

Also, crab guy discovered he had missed his stop to switch trains, because he was talking to Bob. SO he offered Bob a crab as thanks (which he politely declined) and then got up to stagger off at the next stop. He could barely stand up, was clearly three sheets to the wind, he had a black eye and a lip crusted with blood. And he discovered a not quite empty bottle of vodka on the floor across the aisle, which he picked up and was about to take a swig out of when he realized the doors were open and he had to maneuver his cart off the train before they closed again.

I was still smelling crab when I was at home, brushing my teeth 45 minutes later. *Rolleyes*

So I often do surveys for points, to earn rewards like amazon gift cards.

I just got this question, with the accompanying answer options:
Either for business or personal use, in the past year or in the next year or so which, if any, of the following professional services have you used or are you likely to use?
Yes
No

It's not too early to sign yourself and your friends up for "Mumsy's Dreidel Game [ASR]! 1,000 GPs will get you a spot in a game for all 8 nights of Hanukkah. The majority of the GPs go directly to the players. Whatever is left in the pot at the end of the game will be donated to "October NaNoWriMo Prep Challenge [13+].

You might want to make a "re-opened" post in the forum. Looking at it now makes me think it's closed at the moment. Wink

Well, I'm just getting it tidied up and doing the advertising during NaNo! *Laugh* Thankfully, Hanukkah doesn't start til mid-December this year, so I won't be crazy with spinning and posting results while trying to finish up NaNo. *whew* Which is a huge relief, since I'm also TRAVELING during the last week of November. *Facepalm*
