now we gotta run run run

Wow, this October has been SO GOOD to me! What a delightful month, A++ would absolutely Groundhog Day this whole month at least once more. I worked a lot (including learning to close, oh my god I am such a morning person, what a dumb misery closing is) and I was sick for a week solid, but everything was still so good!

Two(?) weekends ago, [twitter.com profile] flitephoto took most of the D&D group up to her grandparents' cabin on a lake in New York! We played board games and ate lots of tasty food and made s'mores around a bonfire (and sang rounds rather than telling ghost stories, at [personal profile] scribe's request and my deep happiness to comply); everyone but me jumped in the lake -- 60F, opposed to the 50F air outside it -- which I was exempted from because I still had a cold, though I did have my feet in the water and laugh at my screaming friends.

Many lovely media things have been happening to me! Housemate A bought Diablo III, which we've been playing as a household and which is SO FUN; I'm getting better at understanding the appeal of pure hitting-things games. I managed to get my hands on Ancillary Sword just after finishing Ancillary Justice, which has spoiled me horribly -- I liked Justice but I LOVED Sword, and now I'm in agonies that I don't already have the next book. In lieu of that I'm reading Kelly Link's Monstrous Affections anthology; I picked it up at a bookstore event last week where I also got to meet Sarah Rees Brennan and say good socially acceptable things instead of just hissing "I SHIP THE RYVES BROTHERS" and running away with my signed books.

I saw Jennifer's Body with Amiel this last weekend; it is SO GOOD if you like a certain type of lady-centric horror movie, and was lovely after also watching Ginger Snaps and Alien Resurrection with them, because what is October if not for horror movies? I think perhaps Carrie is next! Also, totally taking recommendations for anyone's fav horror films, it can be horror movie time any time of year.

On actual Halloween I have several Halloween parties to go to, and then I am doing NaNo! Oh god. I skipped out on Yuletide this year, though I'm still on the pinch hit list and can do stocking stuffers if I want; but it's nice to only have one writing pressure. Anyway NaNo starts on Saturday! I'm signed up at the official site this year (under Aria Woods), mostly to have a handy place to keep track of word count, but if any of y'all are doing NaNo I'd be happy to befriend you over there! November is gonna be fun :)
