Yuletide noms aren't yet open, but they put up a list of fandoms that are probably not accepted
, and like half of my usual offers and fall back reading are on there. :( I totally get why. (They're all pretty popular.) I think a case can be made for SCC, since there's not a lot of active fandom writing that I've seen, and Dark Angel, both of which I usually have on offer lists, though. Also Dragon Age is on there, but I think since Dragon Age II dropped this year, it SHOULD be able to get in on the first year amnesty clause. The tutorial
for how noms will work is up too.
I'm disappointed to see some of my favorites out of the running though. Fringe! Leverage! Narnia! White Collar! Vampire Diaries! I'm not surprised they're out, but I'm sad nonetheless. (I'm a little surprised Sandman isn't out, honestly, though I hope it makes the cut.)
Of the others on my to-possibly-nom list, only one is knocked out, so I'll have to narrow that down to three.

Now like, three weeks to finish packing and get set to move. (Just in time for the move, our air conditioner here seems to be busted again. Thank god it's cool out.)
I still have a ton of my Halloween movies I didn't get through, and might still watch a couple, but of the ones I watched, my favorite was Paranormal Activity, which was really well done for what it was, I thought. (Sidenote: I wish there was a sub category at Netflix or something for 'horror movies that don't involve pets', because I saw the preview for Paranormal Activity 2, and there's a doggie, so I totally don't want to watch it. Also a baby, but being me, it was the dog that worried me.) But one thing I really liked about Paranormal Activity was ( Collapse )
In other news, I might have watched the first couple of episodes of Make it or Break It
. Don't judge me, I like gymnastics movies/shows! There are some things I will just WATCH, regardless, okay?
NaNo goes. . . slowly. Like too slowly to bother posting a word count so far. Meh.
Still crossposting because I'm a creature of habit and don't want to go put a note on my LJ about it, but I still might.
